WLRS Halts Westboro Baptist Church From Protesting At A Funeral

COX RADIO Alternative WLRS/LOUISVILLE afternooner MO had a lively exchange this past FRIDAY (2/9) with SHIRLEY PHELPS-ROPER, daughter of WESTBORO BAPTIST CHURCH pastor FRED PHELPS. WESTBORO was planning a protest over funerals for victims of a house fire in nearby BARDSTOWN, so MO offered up air time if they cancelled the protest.
MO told ALL ACCESS, "Two things were accomplished. First, the community was able to mourn in peace, and, by giving the Church a forum, I was able to show the whole city what kind of wackos these people really are."
