Oakland Schools, Universities Targeted In Westboro Baptist Church Protests


CATHOLIC SCHOOLS. THE GROUP IS KNOWN FOR HARSH AND HURTFUL LANGUAGE. GOD BLESS AMERICA. THE WESTBORO BAPTIST CHURCH. THE KANSAS-BASED GROUP MAKES NO SECRET OF IT. THEY ARE ANTIGAY, ANTIJEW, AND MORE. THEY DON’T LIKE CATHOLICS. I MEAN, THEY ARE PRETTY MUCH BIG ROLL — BIGOTED AND PREJUDICE AGAINST CATHOLIC. Reporter: THE BISHOP IS PAINFULLY ABARE THAT THE GROUP PLANS PROTEST AT CENTRAL CATHOLIC HIGH SCHOOL AND OAKLAND CATHOLIC NEXT THURSDAY. TESTIFY SCHOOLS HAVE DECIDED TO DISMISS CLASSES EARLY. I DON’T THINK OUR YOUNG PEOPLE NEED TO BE EXPOSED TO THAT KIND OF HATRED. Reporter: MORE PROTESTS ARE PLANNED AT THE UNIVERSITY OF PITTSBURG. CARNEGIE MELON UNIVERSITY AND THE CATHOLIC UNIVERSITY DUCANE. IT WILL BE IN THE MIDST OF ITS HERITAGE WEEK. SO THE UNIVERSITY IS ENCOURAGING ITS STUDENTS AND EMPLOYEES TO EMBRACE DIVERSITY AND KINDNESS AND TO REJECT DISCRIMINATION AND HATE. Reporter: AND THE BISHOP CAUTIONS US ABOUT HOW WE MIGHT RESPOND TO THE WESTBORO BAPTIST GROUP. WE BEST NOT TRY TO COUNTER ONE OPINION IN A WAY THAT IS HATEFUL, BIGOTED AND PREJUDICE. THAT ONLY HELPS TO BRING ABOUT A DETERIORATION OF THE CULTURE. IT’S HARD TO TURN THE OTHER CHEEK TO A GROUP THAT HAS PROTESTED AT HUNDREDS OF MILITARY FUNERALS WITH SIGNS
