9-Year-Old to Protesters: ‘God Hates No One’

Thursday, May 17th, 2012

Nine-year-old  Josef Miles has inspired his family–and caught the media’s attention–by taking on a group of controversial protesters from Westboro Baptist Church in Topeka, Kansas, who demonstrate at military funerals displaying signs that use an expletive for homosexuals with the words “God Hates ___.”  NPR.org reports:

“Josef was determined to make his own statement so we went to the car and with pencil and his sketch pad, he made up his own little sign that reads ‘GOD HATES NO ONE,’ ” his mom wrote. “Those people are scary but he stood strong, was respectful and stood by his convictions. He will be a good man, I have no doubt. I got my Mothers Day present early.”
