UPDATE: Someone has organized a counter protest for Thursday morning. Details can be found on this Facebook Event page.
The Westboro Baptist Church, known for picketing the funerals of soldiers, is planning to picket Meade Senior High School this Thursday as students arrive for classes.
In a press release issued by the Church, they specifically targeted Meade High school citing a large number of homosexual students.
In response, Superintendent, Dr. Kevin Maxwell sent a letter home to parents advising that the school did not sanction the protest, but acknowledged that the group has a constitutional right to protest. The school is working with authorities at Ft. Meade and the Anne Arundel County Police to insure that the protest remains as peaceful as possible. Maxwell stressed that the protestors and any counter protestors will not be allowed on school property.
You can read the Westboro Baptist Church press release here, but be aware that the language is strong and offensive.
