Zombies Drown Out Westboro Baptists

DUPONT, Wash. (UPI) — A demonstration by the anti-gay Westboro Baptist Church in Washington state was interrupted by dozens of counter-protesters dressed as zombies.

Melissa Neace, 27, of Spanaway, said she rallied the zombie hoards on Facebook after discovering eight members of the Kansas-based church were planning a demonstration Sunday at the Joint Base Lewis-McChord in DuPont, The News Tribune, Tacoma, Wash., reported Tuesday.

Westboro’s lawyer sent a fax to DuPont Police Chief Ron Goodpaster about the church’s plans to gather “for a public demonstration/outdoor religious service regarding the judgment of God with respect to the dangers of promoting homosexuality, and the rest of the filthy manner of life and idol worshipping of this nation.”

Neace said her aim was to pull attention away from the protest.

“We wanted to turn something negative around, into something people could laugh at and poke fun at,” she said. “It was the easiest way to divert attention from something so hateful.”
