Be careful. Phelps and his road show make their money by "engaging" counter-protestors, getting them to strike/defend themselves, and then they sue them. The money they win keeps them going. I "organized" a Phelps counter-protest (when I was a Lesbian Avenger) and was very careful to instruct folks that they need to keep their distance, and if they came face to face with the Phelps crew, they should cross their arms across their chests- no way to be accused of battery/assault.

Hope it is/was a successful counter-protest!
