Kansas Church Brings Protest to Lubbock

Members of a controversial Kansas church protested outside the United Spirit Arena and the Buddy Holly Center Saturday.

Westboro Baptist Church is known for its dramatic views on homosexuality. Members of the church, as well as dozens of anti-protesters, held up signs in front of the Buddy Holly Center. The church chose the venue because it houses a pair of Elton John's glasses.

The group was on the Texas Tech Campus, because they say it is "gay infested." They also plan to protest Lubbock High School where the Gay Rights Lobby of Texas is pushing for a gay and straight alliance group.
