Members of the Westboro Baptist Church picketed at Santa Monica High School Monday morning in response to the school’s acceptance of the LGBT community, according to the Los Angeles Times.

The organization, known for their stance against homosexuality and the War on Terror, held the protest at the high school from 7 a.m. to 8 a.m., claiming that the school has “broken the moral compass of this generation.”

Parents and teachers associated with the school were referred to as “hateful” and “brutish.”

According to Sarah Wahrenbrock, a spokeswoman for the Santa Monica-Malibu Unified School District superintendent’s office, the protest was said to be swift and peaceful.

The rally came the day after some of its church members protested in Hollywood, prior to the Academy Awards Sunday.

Founded in Topeka, Kan., the Westboro Baptist Church is recognized for their demonstrations across the nation involving anti-gay and anti-Semitic rhetoric.
