Dave Winter, professional clown and haunted-house actor, needed just a few words to describe the Westboro Baptist Church.

So it's not a major shock they visited their nauseating brand of goofy bigotry on Game 3 of the World Series on Saturday.
Thankfully a couple dozen counterprotesters, like Winters, gave the Westboro Baptist Church a hearty St. Louis "reception," and Daily RFT was on the scene to capture the showdown. Enjoy!
