MOORE, Okla. A heated face-off between members of the Westboro Baptist Church and thousands of people in Moore, Oklahoma, ended with WBC protesters packing up and taking off.

They were there to say last year's devastating tornado was a punishment from God, but the town wasn't listening. More than 2,000 people showed up - all eyes on the protesters standing behind a line of police.

Church members didn't stay long though. Less than 10 minutes after arriving, they were gone, throwing whatever they could inside vans as police fought to keep everyone in check.
