The Westboro Baptist Church in Topeka, Kansas, is notoriously hateful when it comes to gay people … which is way Kimberly Kidwell and Katie Short thought it would be the perfect backdrop for their lesbian wedding.
The two women got hitched in the front yard of Equality House, a rainbow-colored haven across the street from the “Phelps Compound.”
And why there? Why did Short and Kidwell want to have their ceremony in a state that didn’t recognize them as married, in front of a place filled with such hatred toward their way of life? They did it to confront the WBC’s anti-gay message head on. (Gawker)
