(RE: “Westboro Baptist Church protests outside Mars Hill service,” June 22): I don’t often see red when I look at the front page of your paper. Sadly I did today.

Seeing that little boy holding up that hateful sign makes me furious that you actually covered their protest in Federal Way. They do not deserve any attention at all!

I have been working in Federal Way for over 20 years to get the word out on acceptance of all people. We must be a city that accepts us all.

Please be more sensitive to the feelings of everyone in our city!

Peg Altman, Federal Way
