Dozens of locals counter the tiny AIDS 2012 Westboro Baptist appearance [video]

Wednesday, members of the notoriously anti-gay Westboro Baptist Church – followers of the Rev. Fred Phelps – arrived at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center to protest the XIX International AIDS Conference, with the church citing AIDS as “God’s curse.” D.C.’s Paul Mazzullo and a few others organized a local response to the three Topeka, Kansas-based parishioners, far outnumbering the anti-gay, anti-Semitic, anti-Islamic, anti-military, anti-Catholic, anti-American fringe cohort.
