WBC Protestors Invade Denver
**Update**Sunday church protests fizzle
Chris Schneider © News Margie Phelps, daughter of the Rev. Fred Phelps, of Westboro Baptist Church in Topeka, Kan., kicks a U.S. flag outside the state Capitol in Denver on Thursday to stir up the crowd. The demonstrators, mostly relatives of Phelps, went to the Capitol to oppose proposed legislation inspired by their latest protest target - funerals of American troops killed in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Legislation ("Rest in Peace Act") introduced to stop protestors drew the WBC protestors to Denver, where they disgraced the state capitol with their disgusting views.
Local media was there as well CBS4 (video), 7 NEWS (video), 9NEWS (video).
The local papers were there as well Rocky Mountain News (great slideshow) capturing this WBC gem:
"Give me an I," she yelled.Sick.
"Give me an E."
"Give me a D."
"What does it spell?"
"Dead soldiers!" shouted the protesters.
Giving the WBC a warm Colorado welcome:
