School community bands together to support gay athlete ahead of hate group’s planned protest
Students at John Burroughs School are banding together to show their support for a gay student-athlete ahead of a planned protest by the Westboro Baptist Church. Senior Jake Bain is known as a star athlete at his school and is headed to Indiana State University to play football. "He is a great athlete, but he's a better kid," said Andy Abbott, Head of School at John Burroughs. "He's a great student and he's a great friend to his peers."
