Near a military base in DuPont, Washington, over the weekend, counter-demonstrators, dressed as zombies, took on protesters from the Westboro Baptist Church (video below).
Melissa Neace launched a Facebook group to organize the zombies event after she learned that the anti-LGBT Westboro Baptist Church would be picketing Joint Base Lewis-McChord.
According to the Westboro Baptist Church, God was killing U.S. soldiers because of LGBT rights.
Neace told The News Tribune: “We wanted to turn something negative around, into something people could laugh at and poke fun at. It was the easiest way to divert attention from something so hateful.”
Over 200 people attended the event on Saturday, which Neace called “Zombie’ing Westboro Baptist Church AWAY from Fort Lewis!”
