It’s hard to take Westboro Baptist Church seriously. They’re not affiliated with any Baptist denomination, they have less than 40 members and a former member says Westboro founder Fred Phelps may be gay, which helps explain this.

So with news that WBC will be carting their old bones to Atlanta to gather outside the Final Four on Saturday to protest the 1986 implementation of the three-point shot. Wait, scratch that. They are here to scream and shout because they think people are worshiping college sports as a false idol. On Sunday, they plan to share their special brand of hate with three Atlanta churches.

To mark the occasion, and inspire counter-protesters, we found 10 brilliant signs to counteract Westboro’s hate. And if that’s not enough, check out how Atlanta gays reacted when Westboro came calling in 2010.
