"A Thing Of Beauty": Santa Monica High School vs. Westboro Baptist Church
The Phelps’ made the trip to California for the Oscars, but since they were already there, they decided to picket a high school too.
Here’s a great shot of the pro-gay high school students protesting against Fred Phelps’ protest – it’s a panorama I created by grabbing shots from the YouTube video and stringing them together. The actual protest line went even longer to the right side of the image.
1. And this is why people such as Phelps and their kind are not long for this world...
There is nothing like the optimism and strength of youth to move a movement along. Times are changing, folks, your old bigoted hatefulness can no longer drown out the power of love. Well done Santa Monica High.
Come mothers and fathers
Throughout the land
And don't criticize
What you can't understand
Your sons and your daughters
Are beyond your command
Your old road is
Please get out of the new one
If you can't lend your hand
For the times they are a-changin'.
