Westboro Baptist Church Protests at Clayton High School

Westboro Baptist Church plans to protest at two local high schools today. Patch local editors are on the scene. Nate Birt is live in Clayton and Joe Barker is live in St. Peters. Patch will provide real-time updates throughout the morning. Stay tuned!

  1. "Pure positive energy" in the St. Louis area today, according to local tweets, thanks to the counter-protesters who outnumbered the Westboro people and sent them on their way in record time in Clayton.
  2. Even as the protest in Clayton breaks up and ends, the Tweets and chatter continue.
  3. I was hoping that the Westboro Baptist Church members would fall victim to the fog here in St Louis this morning. And by "fall victim" I mean drive their bus off a bridge into a river and drown.
