The Westboro Baptist Church did not get a warm welcome in Vermont.   About 100 people counter-protested the picketers.

Some demonstrators held up paper hearts and sang songs even holding a bake sale.

"I think it's important for everyone to be able to have full free speech I'm against any sort of censorship but I think it's really important for people to discuss it" Mark Leah a UVM Student said.

Police did say there was some spirited dialogue between the two groups but nothing got out of hand.   There were no incidents.
