WBC Protest Called Off For Publicity But Exploited Arizona Victims
News has stated that the Westboro Baptist Church that planned to protest the 6 victims of the Arizona shooting on Saturday has called off the protest. Well, its not all because they came to their senses of course but only for an exchange for publicity. What?!
On Tuesday, daughter of founder of WBC Shirley Phelps-Roper has been promised an interview with 102.1 The Edge in Toronto, Canada if they agreed to call off the protest. We found that this is not the first time they have “called a bluff” on a protest. We did some research and found in 2006, Shirley Phelps-Roper called off a similar protest planned for the funerals of Amish schoolgirls who were shot to death in Lancaster, Pennsylvania in exchange for publicity.
