"The Most Hated Family in America"

This is the Topeka KS compound of the infamous Westboro Baptist Church, a church which claims that God hates and will be sending to hell essentially everyone other than them, and which furthermore then feels the need to travel the country loudly picketing funerals (particularly funerals for soldiers killed in action and victims of natural tragedies) with signs informing the bereaved family members that God hates their lost loved one and that he or she is currently burning in hell.

They also desecrate the American flag every chance they get, often while carrying signs that say "Thank God for 9/11."

That ugliness aside, the reason I wanted to get a few pictures here was that the U.S. Supreme Court is shortly going to be hearing a case concerning them (Snyder v. Phelps).
