Springfield – A posting on its website says the Westboro Baptist Church is planning to protest tonight before the Adam Lambert concert at Juanita K. Hammons Hall.
A counter protest has been organized by students from Missouri State University, including Adam Crawford, who tells PN Today that over 200 people, invited on Facebook, have committed to attending the “counter protest”. Crawford says the effort started when the recent Prop 8 measure, to over turn a gay marriage ban in California, was approved. “I decided to see if the WBC had any planned protests for it, and low and behold–they were going to be right here, on Saturday! This was Thursday morning, so you can imagine my surprise. After talking with a friend, I decided to organize a counter-protest.”
