This past weekend members of the Westboro Baptist Church brought their vitriolic message to Brooklyn.

Known for picketing the funerals of soldiers with signs that read "GOD HATES FAGS" and similar wholesome messages, the Kansas-based group didn't get much traction with their protest, and were drowned out by about 200 counter-protesters.

The extremist Christians had also rallied in front of Brooklyn Technical High School on Thursday.
