Love is the answer

SF came out in a counter protest against the Westboro Baptist Church’s “God Hates the Media Tour” to show love for the tech community today.

There were hugs

Lots of hugging.

Scriptures about loving everyone instead of hating

Matthew 22:39 “And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.”

1 John 4:20 “Whoever claims to love God yet hates a brother or sister is a liar. For whoever does not love their brother and sister, whom they have seen, cannot love God, whom they have not seen.”

Hell must be fabulous

Clearly, with so many loving people.

Love is all you need, in the midst of anger

There was a lot of vitriol coming from these youngsters and a bearded dude. Apparently God hates the media…and everyone. But one sweet sign says it all. Love is all you need :)

This funny dude

God hates shrimp, according to this guy. Leviticus 9:12-18 is actually about burnt offerings though.

Hi fives

Jon Allen from Learnist came to the protest to sing and dance and hi five a friend outside the Twitter building.

Love all things

One simple statement says it all.

Freedom of expression "muthafuckah"

This guy. Anonymous?

Friendship

Onlookers from Heroku came to snap some pics at Pinterest HQ.

Listening

Some passersby even tried to listen and reason with the Westboro Baptist Church. Loved this guy in a Bob Marley shirt.

Messages about God's love

Sign reads: “God” loves everyone. That’s kind of “His” thing!

Welcome wagon

Welcome to San Francisco! We love everyone…or at least we try to. Appreciate the sentiment though.
