The Westboro Baptist Church recently announced that members will be protesting in Salt Lake City during President Gordon B. Hinckley's funeral. They claim that "God hates Gordon Hinckley." This should not only be offensive to members of the LDS Church, but offensive to all responsible citizens. They continually demean people from backgrounds different from their own. At the end of the day, true Christians will love their neighbors and encourage others to do so.
