Members of the controversial Westboro Baptist Church, based in in Topeka, Kan., plan to protest at Cherry Hill High School East and the USCJ 2009 Biennial Convention on Monday, December 7.

The church has gained national notoriety in recent years for its picket lines at soldiers' funerals to present its message that their deaths are God's punishment for Americans' tolerance of homosexuality. According to a press release, the group will protest at Cherry Hill HS East from 7:30 a.m. to 8 a.m. on Monday, Dec. 7.

The group's picketing schedule also states that protestors will be outside of the Crowne Plaza Hotel from 8:30 a.m. to 9 a.m. on Monday, Dec. 7 to protest the International Biennial Convention for The United Synagogue for Conservative Judaism (USCJ).

To Kneel [a #Poem]

To Kneel 

(c) Rabbi Menachem Creditorfor Landingham & Kaepernick, our angels in the wings
Sometimes, it isn't about nuance.
Sometimes it just comes down to facing the storm,
calling God out,
standing at the center of a whirlwind
holding your ground.

No cathedral is immune to agony,
no soul impervious to life itself no nation purely noble.
If it were any other way,
there would be no need for cathedrals
in the first place.

Kneel,  stand,  sit,  rise up.

To kneel is
to submit  to lower oneself  to step down  to pause.
To kneel is to call attention  to touch the Earth's face to listen to those  whose blood saturates  the very roots of our story.
To kneel is to step aside  to step outside  to invite others to come closer  to remember.
To kneel is not to stand not to stand not to stand idly by.
Speak your truth,
God damn it.

That's what God wants most of all.
