Years ago, my roommates and went to see what was going to happen when members of the Westboro Baptist Church visited. I can’t recall why the jet setting clan – many of which are close relatives – came to Albany in late winter. Probably a performance of the Vagina Monologues or gay-affirming curriculum, I don’t remember. I just watched. The gentleman with the signs is Steve Drain, one of the church’s biggest media presence. He’s quite eccentric and good for a soundbite. They were gone within a couple of hours.
