Members of Westboro Baptist Church (Topeka, Kansas) protest Billy Graham in his small hometown of Montreat, NC June 12, 2012. Graham supported the marriage amendment (banning same sex marriage) in NC. It is unclear why protestors chose to target Graham just weeks after his strong support of the anti-gay bill that passed in NC. A small group of counter protestors traded insults with the group across lines set up by local police.
