Controversial group gains no traction

Westboro Baptist Church was here in Central Texas this picketing outside Ft. Hood while the memorial service was going on. When it was over, they came up and picketed at Baylor for a while, in front of our science building.

I knew about it through a grad student, who had a friend who was in contact with them because of a sociology of religion project where he had had contact with church members.

I didn't know about it through our local media, none of which covered either event. I imagine this is disappointing for a group that issues press releases and publishes a picketing schedule on its web site.
