Westboro Church Runs Away

Fred Phelps may be dead, but the members of his old church (mostly his own family) are still alive and protesting. Recently they made the trip to Moore, Oklahoma for the fourth time since the tragic tornados that swept through and leveled the town. On this trip the residents of Moore were waiting for Westboro to arrive, and they had something special planned for them.

Just a few minutes after the protesters arrived the good citizens of Moore sent them running.

Watch as the folks from Westboro “Church” get what’s coming to them.

“I was afraid of a riot really. I didn’t know how long Westboro would stay, which they were smart to leave,” Dan Eccles told KFOR.

While police held back Moore residents, the Westboro church members grabbed their signs and rushed back to their cars.

Dan Eccles said, “They shagged tail, got in them cars and was leaving in a hurry. Oh yeah, they was gone!”

“I thought it was hilarious. I mean I really did. We sat there and laughed the whole time,” said Tina Johnson. “They were running, yeah.”

“I think it’s just impressive how Moore comes together as a family and stands for their town,” Amanda Eccles said.
