Tell me what you think of this

A local high school in my area is putting on a production of The Laramie Project.  It's a play about the murder of Matthew Shepard - the gay college student who was beaten to death in Wyoming.

A couple weeks ago news came that the Westboro Baptist Church (the people who protest military funerals and other things) was coming to picket the production.  That was not really that shocking - when I was a freshman in college, I was in a production of Laramie and we had fears that they'd show up on our campus.  They picketed another campus' production about an hour from ours.

News today is that a couple of students who were members of the cast created fake Facebook accounts to invite the WBC to picket the play.  A source close to us told us that the "students meant no harm, they just thought it would be interesting."
