For folks attending tomorrow night’s talk at the Kansas City Public Library, here are three questions I plan on talking about during the lecture:
- How does Westboro Baptist Church’s theology support their picketing? (See the picture below, of a church member picketing at the Supreme Court in 2010 while other church members are inside arguing _Snyder v. Phelps_, which they won. If you’d like to use the photo in any way, feel free, but please be sure to credit it to me.)
- Why do people leave WBC? Why do they stay? Why do they join?
- How does WBC make sense in the context of American religion historically and in the present moment?
If you are attending tomorrow night’s talk, what are the questions/topics you’d like to hear about? Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to be sure I put them on the list.
