I think it's exactly the right forum. Not to try to start a group response, but is there a counter-demonstration or some kind of response planned to the actions of this truly grotesquely hate-filled "church" by your members or friends of Temple Israel? If so, I'd very much like to be among them. These people are deeply disgusting and cruel and I want to fight back in whatever way I can against their ugliness. Please let me know.

So I am sending this to my SCA family because you all are just that, my family and this is seriously bad.
I just got this word in from our Rabbi--
According to the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) and other reliable sources, Westboro Baptist Church (WBC) is planning on picketing Temple Israel next Monday, October 12th from 4:15pm – 4:45pm. WBC is well-known for its provocative (and ugly) demonstrations at military funerals, gay rights events, and religious institutions including Jewish congregations and main-line Christian churches including those of Catholics and Lutherans. On the same day, the group will also be picketing at Broken Arrow High School, Congregation B'nai Emunah, and the Tulsa Performing Arts Center. For more of the specifics about WBC and how we respond, please visit the ADL website at:
So keep our sanity and resolve in your thoughts as we make our way through the next week or so.

What is even better and I am sure not lost on those biggots is that this is during religious school for 4-6th grade kids (including Avi). Nice of them, isn't it?
