Flint Southwestern is one of the targets of the protests organized by the Westboro Baptist Church this morning.

The church announced that they were protesting the school due to the poor leadership of the community around them. Instead of a possible confrontation outside of school grounds, Southwestern has decided to cancel classes for the day.

Flint Community Schools posted the letter below on their Facebook page explaining the cancellation.

The Westboro people have protests planned at U of M Flint this morning, followed by protests at Grand Blanc High School.

There are counter protests organized for each of those events as well. You can get all of the information about the Westboro agenda for the day along with the counter protests here.

Do you think SWA closing was the right decision?
