The Leadership at Austin's All Saints Episcopal Church say they are taking a Christian stand as members of the infamous Westboro Baptist Church is set on protesting their beliefs and the Episcopal convention. Reverend Michael Adams told his congregants that they will proceed as usual, try not to get in a shouting match with them, basically try not to pay any attention to them at all. He also said that they respect their first amendment right, and they'll pray for them.

 The protestors will be in town, through the weekend, Adams says its probably because of their churches pro stance on LGBT people.
