Moore Okla. – Hundreds of residents of Moore, Oklahoma ran protesters from the notorious Westboro Baptist Church out of town on Sunday.

The Westboro protestors were in town to picket Central Junior High, which has been housing Plaza Towers Elementary students since last year’s deadly tornado, according to our sister station KFOR.

Posts on the Westboro website contend that God sent that tornado as retribution against Moore.

Westboro’s permit to picket was for half an hour, but the group only lasted about eight minutes before fleeing as a large group of counter-protestors began to cross the street.
