Westboro Church Exchanges Amish Protests for Airtime

By  | 

A Topeka church that had said it planned to protest at the funerals of five Amish girls killed in Pennsylvania this week now says it won't have the protest.

That comes after a nationally syndicated radio talk show host, Mike Gallagher, offered the Westboro Baptist Church an hour of airtime tomorrow in exchange for dropping the demonstration.

Now, a representative of the Topeka group will appear on Gallagher's show.

Members of the anti-gay church says it blames Pennsylvania Governor Ed Rendell for the deaths of the Amish children because of comments he made about Westboro Baptist on national TV several months ago.

Rendell's reply today when told about the group's statement? ``They're insane.''
