This is a story I meant to wright about a while ago, but never got around to it. While Barack Obama was becoming the first African-American president, Stu Rasmussen (below) became the America's first Transgender Mayor.
The residents of Silverton seem to love Mayor Rasmussen, and they displayed this love recently. The idiots from the Westboro Baptist "Church" decided to come to town from Kansas and "speak some words of truth to this 60-year-old pervert" (according to their website). I have posted about these fuckwads before (HERE and HERE).
So four Westboro losers show up in the middle of Silverton to teach the "pervert" a lesson. They stand on American flags (God hates America because of all us fags) and hold up their signs saying "Barack Obama=AntiChrist", "God Hates You", and "Fag Media Shame".
And guess what these idiots found? From Towleroad:
"The counterprotesters were waiting across the two-lane street -- men in skirts and boots, moms with babes in arm, lifelong Silverton residents alongside kids playing hooky from Salem schools. The crowd of about 150 waved and drummed and hugged. Their signs, homemade, hurriedly produced on office laser printers and painted on the back of campaign yard signs, focused on the positive. 'My love is bigger than your hate,' read one. 'We love Stu (and so does God).' 'Everyone is welcome in Silverton.' "
Silverton, Oregon - you officially ROCK. This is the kind of stuff that makes me proud to be an American.
