Penn State Scandal: Westboro Baptist Church To Demonstrate

Just when you thought the scene at Penn State couldn’t get any weirder, the Westboro Baptist Church – yes, that utterly crazy Kansas church we’ve all gotten annoyed with – has announced that it will demonstrate on Saturday at Beaver Stadium. The demonstration will take place from 10:00 to noon, and the Nittany Lions will host Nebraska at noon, so what already would have been a madhouse is about to get madder.

Church members have scheduled a demonstration from 10 a.m. to noon in response to allegations that former football coach Jerry Sandusky abused eight boys over 15 years and questions over whether the university mishandled a 2002 report of a sexual assault by Sandusky on the University Park campus.

It’s hard to guess what distinctly wacky angle the church will take on this, although surely it will have something to do with homosexuality (which, obviously, isn’t what the scandal is really about).

The comments section to the Centre Daily Times article linked above suggests that Nittany Lions fans won’t be too happy about the church’s presence. Some comments are even threatening. In any case, there can be little doubt that their presence can only make things worse.
