The Westboro Baptist Church Accidentally Raises Money for Gays

28 Mar

In February we wrote about Megan Phelp, heiress to the Westboro Baptist Church of “God Hates Fags” fame. But while writing scathing and/or witty op-eds is fun for us (and the rest of the blogosphere), it’s probably not helping anybody. That’s where I turn your attention to Jason Connell, a UIC student who managed to turn the WBC’s presence on his campus into a fundraiser for the HRC, the International AIDS Foundation, and the Chicago-based Jerusalem Open House. Well played!
