Video: Westboro Baptist Groupies Gets Counter-Demonstration at Baltimore County Courthouse

Westboro Baptist Groupies Gets Counter-Demonstration at Baltimore County Courthouse A small party from the ultra-conservative, ultra-fundamentalist Westboro Baptist Church picketed same-sex marriage on Wednesday morning, Jan. 2, 2013, in front of the Baltimore County Courthouse in Towson, MD. Despite the freezing weather, more than 150 counter-protesters showed up with signs praising the recently enacted, "Marriage Equality Law." They also urged tolerance and love for one another. Also present, were a contingent of Baltimore County police officers and sheriffs. They made sure the two competing sides were kept a safe distance apart. The Marriage Equality Law went into effect yesterday throughout the state. Today, was the first day the courthouse was open to perform a same-sex marriage. Speaking on camera on this video is a follower of the Westboro Baptist Church from Topeka, Kansas; and, Peace & Justice activist, Colleen Davidson of Baltimore, MD.
