University of Central Florida students plan to protest the Westboro Baptist Church's upcoming visit to the college later this month, according to KnightNews.com.
Students have created a Facebook event titled, "Protest the Westboro Baptist Church invading UCF" and approximately 300 people have said they are attending.
The event page description reads:
The Westboro Baptist Church suddenly feels the need to insult, degrade, and condemn the students of the University of Central Florida: a high caliber, top tier research university dedicated to the pursuit of higher education.
Therefore, we are staging a protest. We are going to tell them to crawl back into their pathetic little holes, and leave us the hell alone. We may be "faggots"/"faggot-lovers" or "going to burn in hell," but I'll be damned if I dare let anyone of those selfish, pompous, overzealous fools insult or degrade any one of my fellow peers at UCF.
Make signs, tell your friends, MAKE THIS VIRAL! But: DO NOT attack them physically in any shape or form. We are smarter, stronger and better. Feel free to yell, scream, make signs, bring a megaphone, I dont care. So long as you don't touch them, let them feel your wrath. Bring as much fury as I have boiling inside of me right this very second as I create this event........
Westboro has faced fierce opposition on college campuses in the past. Vassar College students staged an "anti-protest" earlier this year, pledging to raise $100 for every minute the Church picketed on their campus and Texas A&M students formed a human wall to prevent Westboro members from protesting at an alumnus soldier's funeral last year.
