Missouri Students to Show Support for Gay High School Football Player Ahead of Westboro Baptist Church Picket
Students from a high school in Missouri are showing support for a fellow gay classmate and football player as members of the anti-LGBT hate group Westboro Baptist Church plan to picket the school Monday. The group announced plans to picket John Burroughs School, a private and non-sectarian prep school, in Ladue, Mo. in a Feb. 24 press release, taking issue with out football player and student Jake Bain, whom they call a "smirking, proud fag child," The Huffington Post reports. "This beast is vaunted as the best thing that has happened to football since Knute Rockne," the WBC's statement reads. "In fact, in the wake of this football playing fag phenomenon, Knute is just a proverbial water boy."
