By sheer happenstance, our consecration in Long Beach was happening alongside the local gay pride event. So, of course, the homophobic Neanderthals showed up. Apparently, our friends had to walk through a gauntlet of hatred.
Thanks to Box Turtle Bulletin for also showing us the normal human beings who showed up with funny signs and silly costumes. I am grateful for these people who choose to counter hate with hilarity.
Here’s just one of the images.
Go to Box Turtle Bulletin for more wonderful images about how humanity confronts hate, as well as the narrative here and here.
I give deep thanks to the Californians who show up to counter the Westboro hate with humor and hilarity.
