Edwards vs. Westboro
I'm happy to say it has been reported that a "human buffer" of many counter-protesters were on the scene for the funeral of Elizabeth Edwards, to shield the Edwards family from the promised protesters from the Westboro Baptist Church.
According to a report by the Christian Science Monitor, although Westboro often turns out in sizable numbers when they make their hateful protests at the funerals of fallen American soldiers, for the Edwards funeral, they only managed to turn out five church members (two of whom were children), making them vastly outnumbered by the "human buffer" holding positive signs and singing Christmas carols.
I'm always so glad when I see people standing up to these horrible Westboro people.
