I’m not going to go into too many details about the protest, but if you were there, or if you passed by Theater Cedar Rapids last Friday evening you would have seen a variety of opinions displayed along First Avenue.
A massive crowd turned out to counter Fred Phelps and his “Primitive Baptist” claims. The “god hates gay” campaign was not well received and community members of all types joined together against the hateful and misconstrued message that Phelps and his followers parade throughout the country.
It was certainly interesting to see the varying responses to Phelps, some really didn’t know what they actually believed, some were looking for a reason to be in the spotlight, some were just as hateful, some appeared confident that god does not exist, and others proclaimed the Love of Christ for ALL people…

I didn’t have an opportunity to make my own signs, but if I had, they might have said…

God loves EVERYONE!
Jesus died for ALL sins!
I have sin too!
God loves what He created!
Come as you are!
Who am I to judge, God calls us to love.
