musings of a subway performer and lifelong troubadour

Brooklyn vs Westboro Baptist Church protesters

Added on by NYC Subway Girl.

This short takes place outside Congregation Beth Elohim in Park Slope, Brooklyn. The Westboro Baptist Church staged a protest there, preaching bigotry and hatred.

This clip is from Greg Reitman, the same guy who's been creating my clips.  I'm still trying to wrap my head around why a group so filled with hate and bigotry could travel all the way to Brooklyn to protest against people they would rather denounce than try to understand.

It is a powerful commentary, showing that humanity is continuously in conflict. Only by being true to ourselves can we finally abolish hatred, bigotry and ignorance.

and I'd rather be the optimist.
