Westboro To Protest At Inauguration

Via Huffington Post:
The Huffington Post confirmed with the National Park Service that the Westboro Baptist Church has secured a permit to picket along Pennsylvania Avenue at the north sidewalk, southeast corner of John Marshall Park, from 7 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. on Jan. 21. In the past, the Westboro Baptist Church -- known for its vehement anti-gay positions -- has made empty threats. The group threatened to protest the funerals of Reddit co-founder and programmer Aaron Swartz as well as the victims of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting, but did not show up to either. The group also did not appear at the funerals for the victims of the Aurora, Colo., and Tucson, Ariz., shootings. Westboro Baptist Church has, however, followed through with protesting Obama before.
They're surely hoping for a reason to sue the federal government.
