Westboro Church hate group to bring their vile hideous message to Kentucky

Via LEX 18: Yeah unfortunately. I hope there's a good progressive protest, here are the details:

LOUISVILLE (AP) - Members of a Kansas church who won a Supreme Court case that gives them broad rights to continue jeering protests say they plan to picket at Kentucky churches this weekend.

The Westboro Baptist Church announced in faxes that members plan to protest at an Owensboro Catholic church that was the site of a suicide of a man who said in a note he had been sexually abused.

The group says it will also target two more Protestant churches in Owensboro and a Catholic church in Louisville.

The Supreme Court ruled Wednesday that the church's incendiary rhetoric was protected by the First Amendment.

The Diocese of Owensboro declined to comment. Cecelia Price of the Archdiocese of Louisville told The Courier-Journal that church officials have notified police and plan to ignore the protest.
