While it is already difficult to fathom the events that took place in Newtown, Connecticut this past Friday, the fact that people are planning to protest a memorial for the victims may be just as hard to swallow. The Westboro Baptist Church has been known to protest U.S. soldier's funerals, as well as the legalization of gay marriage in various states. As they continue to justify horrible actions taking place in the United States as punishment from God, connecting the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting to Connecticut's "acceptance" of the gay and lesbian community just doesn't seem to make sense. Whether or not you believe in a higher power or support gay marriage, it's hard to deny that these actions are unjust and blatantly offensive. Although the freedom of speech and right to protest is something sacred in the United States, do you think the line should be drawn here? For one, I hope this spread of hate is prevented and the Westboro Baptist Church is kept away from the vigil, for the sake of those who are related to or knew the victims, and everyone else.
