Colorado Students Protest Phelps Family

But the Phelps didn't show. Via the University of Colorado's Daily Camera:
Hundreds of University of Colorado students gathered around the Dalton Trumbo Fountain on Monday night in a show of support for gay rights. The demonstration came before a same-sex marriage debate on the CU campus organized by the Aquinas Institute for Catholic Thought. "I want to promote love and equal rights," said CU freshman Alexandra Deary. "We're here and not going away. We want our rights now." The students waved banners, sang and carried flowers intended for picketers from the Westboro Baptist Church led by Fred Phelps. But members of the Kansas church -- who, according to the church's Web site, were going to protest against gay rights outside the debate venue -- were nowhere to be found.
