INDIANAPOLIS -- A controversial church and Indiana union members could find themselves sharing the same stage before the Super Bowl.

The Kansas-based Westboro Baptist Church, which is known for its radical demonstrations outside soldier funerals, has announced it plans to travel to Indianapolis to picket outside the Super Bowl.

Teamsters upset over the divisive right-to-work bill that passed the House on Wednesday said previously they also plan to protest outside the big game to bring national attention to their issue.

The Super Bowl Host Committee has set up two so-called free speech zones at South and Illinois streets and on the west side of the Statehouse, RTV6's Derrik Thomas reported.

Right To Work just passed the Indiana House today, Senate will pass it as it stands and Mitch will sign it.

Union goons are spitting mad, going to be interesting if they screw with the Super Bowl like they threatened to.

I doubt they will be able to screw with anything the NFL is to powerful. Besides, people going to the game and other events, spent alot of money and I doubt they want to be messed with by a bunch of thugs. The media will probably write a puff peice about these idiots.

All it takes is a couple of Teamsters to have a “breakdown” at the same time before the game in the right spots and yeah, they could make it miserable for a lot of people.

True, I don’t think they could get away with this inside the stadium, do you? I am not trilled with the matchup this year, but they better not screw with the Super Bowl. I haven’t missed one since Super Bowl XXVI.

unions have always been such a class act....and you wonder why Scott Walker threw them out in Wisconsin. Daniels, in Indiana, did the same thing when he was sworn in. I was a member of the state union and the only difference I saw was more money in my pocket.
