The Westboro Baptist Church is known for their controversial demonstrations, such as the anti-gay protest at a military funeral that led to a Supreme Court case. The church was planning to protest the graduation of Ponderosa High School senior, Ryan Wheeler.
Wheeler wrote an article about the Supreme Courts decision to rule in favor of the Westboro Church. The article was published in the Denver Post, and it caused Westboro to plan the protest. Luckily, it was cancelled the day of the ceremony.
