Generous Turnout at KCPL for _God Hates_

The KC Public Library is a wonder! About 300 folks turned out this week to learn about the history and theology of Westboro Baptist Church and how this group fits into American religious history–and the present state of American religion. I couldn’t have asked for a kinder reception from the library or a more engaged audience. Despite the serious topic and the fact that many people in the audience have been hurt by the tactics of WBC and other anti-gay groups, there was a lot of laughter and good spirits.

If you it, you can catch the talk online. And if you listen and have questions or want to share your own story, feel free to contact me at

And if you like the work of the library, be sure to say thank you with a donation.
