VIDEO: Westboro Baptist Church Protests at Clayton High School

The protest happened Monday morning.

A handful of Westboro Baptist Church members staged a short protest Monday morning at Clayton High School. It targeted the school's Gay Straight Alliance (GSA).

Hundreds of counter-protestors turned out to wave signs bearing messages such as "Support gay rights" and "You are beautiful no matter what they say." They also chanted We Shall Not Be Moved, made T-shirts and gave interviews to St. Louis-area TV stations.

The gathering began before 7:30 a.m. and began to dissipate at 8:15 when Westboro representatives ended their protest.

Among attendees: Dr. Louise Losos, principal of CHS, and David Hoffman, the faculty sponsor for the GSA.
