    Westboro in Moore , Oklahoma


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     ghislaineldy says she was shocked and angered to see Westboro Baptist Church members protesting in her town of Moore, Oklahoma, on April 6. Church members had a permit to picket for 30 minutes, according to CNN affiliate KFOR, but they were driven out of town after eight minutes by the hundreds of Moore residents gathered across the street. The church has said God sent a deadly tornado to Moore last year as punishment for America’s tolerance of homosexuality. In the first video, you can hear cheers from residents as the police arrive.
    - Jareen, CNN iReport producer

    Westboro has been in Moore, Oklahoma to protest a business owner who made a marquee they didn't like...They also protested today the deaths of our beautiful children in last May's tornadoes..The whole town showed up today in support..They were allowed to protest for only a few minutes, as the crowd was quite large and quite agitated..The police escorted them out..
