Anti-Semite Westboro Baptist Church protests at Northwesterns Hillel » North by Northwestern
What Terry Jone’s Friends at Westboro Baptist are up to.
Four members of the Westboro Baptist Church gathered on Wednesday on the corner of Foster Street and Sheridan Road for half an hour to protest Northwestern’s Fiedler Hillel. This protest, brought on by the Jewish New Year, Rosh Hashanah, also included stabs at homosexuals, President Obama and Americans in general.
According to a press release faxed to Hillel from the Kansas-based church, the protest was one of five stops the group made in the area on Wednesday. Other locations included the Illinois Holocaust Museum in Skokie and the Israel Consulate in Chicago. The press release was filled with quotations from the Bible and a statement saying, “WBC is looking for the good figs among the Christ-rejecting hypocrites.”
The group held several signs, with such slogans as, “Your rabbi is a whore” and “Mourn for your sins.” They sang parodies of famous songs, including “Hey Jew,” based off the Beatles’ “Hey Jude,” and a remake of “God Bless America” called “God Hates America.”
