Westboro Baptist to Picket Anniversary of Va. Tech Shootings, Students Taking Action (video)

The Roanoke Times reported on Friday that Rev. Fred Phelps and his band of inbred followers are planning to stage protests at strategic points near the campus of Virginia Tech on Friday, April 9, from 1pm - 1:30pm and student groups are preparing to take action.

The following barely-coherent post appears on the Westboro Baptist Church's website,
Virginia Tech N. Main St. & E. Roanoke St. (SW Corner) WBC to picket Virginia Tech to connect the dots. God sent the killer because of your proud sin! You raise your kids to believe they can disobey God with impunity, and that His commandments are all on the table to be disposed of whenever you please. That's why they think fornication, adultery, and sodomy are all just in good fun (instead of the filthy practices they are), and that's why the wrath of God is on them. God is cursing you by killing those same children that you have lied to all their lives. VA Tech was just GodSmacked -- another of your students murdered -- and you still refuse to heed and obey the standards of God. Woe unto you! "Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness...!" Isa. 5:20. You're going to Hell, and you're taking your kids with you.
A student group from Tech has formed a Facebook page "How VT Will Beat the WBC", to organize students to take action. One of the suggestions is to use the protest as fundraiser and donate the proceeds to charities that the Phelps folks oppose. The following video shows how one group of students did just that:
