Dammit, Westboro

This week I was back on the campus of Wichita State, being interviewed by the student-run Sunflower. It’s always nice to go back to my alma mater, where I was sports editor of the newspaper in the early ‘90s, and I even got to see the new Sunflower newsroom for the first time. (OK, so they’ve been using it since 1995, but it’s still new to me.)

Today this article came out, and the author Kevin Brown did a great job of getting my message across.

So I was feeling pretty good, until a friend of mine texted me this picture a few minutes ago. A member of Westboro Baptist Church is on WSU's campus this afternoon, telling gay people they are all going to hell.

Westboro really needs to just go away. Seriously.
