Westboro Baptist Church protest in Fort Collins countered by somersaults, Thai food

Last week, we told you about plans to counter a threatened Fort Collins demonstration on Friday by the vile Westboro Baptist Church with silence. In addition, counter-protesters also waved signs and spread a message of acceptance -- and then afterward, they celebrated with somersaults and Thai food. Take that, you bastards! Look below to see a video by a member of the anti-WBC force.
