Topeka And the Westboro Baptist Church

He and I, the Brother-in-law and Gena decided we would drive over to Topeka today because it is there and we love adventures. That is the only reason. I kind of wanted to go Amish shopping but we were getting a late start and it was an additional 1/2 hour drive so Topeka made sense. We exited the highway for the Kansas State capital…not up on a hill with gold domes like Iowa but quite an impressive building,

Not quite sure the history of the Indian adorning the top but whatever…

Not quite sure why Lincoln and not Bob Dole, but okay…whatever…

…and then someone brought up the Westboro Baptist Church and weren’t those bigots from Topeka. I’m not quite sure what I was really expecting but it wasn’t this

  2. Wow. Just wow. That is some serious hate. Almost unfathomable.
    Beyond that I love American history. Cool trip.
