Just days after he died they were seen again picketing a Lorde concert in Kansas City where they attracted this rather wonderful counter protest...

Residents of the city rose above the 'God hates fags' vitriol of the WBC to show that compassion is the perfect antidote to hate.

Megan Coleman who helped make the sign told KSHB: "We realized that it wasn't so much about antagonising them but sending out the countered safe that we are here for people who need that message and need that positivity."

The message didn't quite get through however.

WBC member, Steve Drain, said: "I don't even know what they're saying."

The organisation gained a repulsive notoriety for picketing the funerals of US servicemen killed in Iraq and Afghanistan.

It claimed the deaths are God's punishment for American immorality and tolerance of homosexuality and abortion.

Fred phelps, who was ex-communicated last year died last week.
