The Westboro Baptist Church is probably one of the more well known churches in the world, and not for a good reason.
The Church, based in Kansas, is well-known for protesting the funerals of soldiers saying that they are being struck down because of the sins of America. On Sunday, the decided to protest in the town on Moore, Oklahoma. Why? Because the town had been devastated by tornadoes, and they wanted to let the townspeople know that it was because of their sins. Understandably, the citizens of Moore didn’t take that very well, and planned their own counter-protest. They ran Westboro protesters out of their town in a mere 8 minutes.
Even some of the counter-protesters were surprised by how quickly the group took off.
“I thought it was hilarious. I mean I really did. We sat there and laughed the whole time,” said local resident Tina Johnson, in an interview with KFOR-TV.
