Westboro Baptist Cult to Protest St. Louis Teen Football Player Who Came Out as Gay
The Westboro Baptist Cult announced in February that they will picket John Burroughs Private High School in St. Louis on Monday.
The cult plans on protesting teen football star Jake Bain who came out as gay three months ago.
Bain is heading to Indiana State next fall to play football. He is 18.
Hundreds of supporters are planning a counter protest at John Burroughs on Monday morning.
Jake Bain made national headlines when he came out this fall.
Jake Bain, the openly gay football star headed to Indiana State next fall, will be the center of love and joy on Monday as the community rallies around its hero.
The reason for the outpouring of support is because the jerks from the Westboro group (I will not call them a “church” by any stretch of the imagination) plan to stage a hate-filled rally
A bunch of people are expected to rally around Bain on Monday, who seems to be a superstar in more ways than one.
“He is a great athlete, but he’s a better kid,” Andy Abbott, Head of School at John Burroughs, told Fox 2 Now. “He’s a great student and he’s a great friend to his peers.”
Bain was recently honored by the St. Louis Blues.
Hundreds of counter protesters are expected to show up from 7:45 to 8:15 AM on Monday.
Jake was honored by the St. Louis Blues.
I am incredibly honored to be the Blues’ hometown hero tonight at Pride Night🏳️🌈 The Blues continue to set the bar for the rest of professional sports teams to follow in showing support for the LGBT community. I am proud to be a Blues fan. #stlblues #LGB pic.twitter.com/0dUfIj6v2g
