Controversial Church Plans to Picket Millersville University
Lancaster Online.com reports:
Millersville University is preparing for a possible Monday morning visit from Westboro Baptist Church, an anti-gay Kansas church group known for protesting military funerals.
Last weekend, Westboro added MU to its online picketing schedule, saying it will picket the screening of an anti-hate film to be shown Sunday night at the campus.
“After today’s screening, you will know that God hates people and sends people to hell,” the church said on its Web site.
This week, MU students were preparing to stand alongside the Westboro group as “peacekeepers.” Campus police planned to have extra officers on hand.
But no one knows if the Westboro group actually will show up, or where the group will assemble on campus.
