No red carpet treatment from Colorado Springs for members of Westboro Baptist Church who plan to return for another anti-gay protest.

The members of the Kansas-based church have recently stirred up a ruckus in Colorado Springs.

On Thursday, 16 protestors held up signs downtown with quotes like "God Hates America" and "Thank God for September 11th."

Because of such sayings, city council has given Pastor Fred Phelps and his followers a letter saying they are not welcome.

The group plans to return at the end of April to picket outside Focus on the Family who, they feel, is too accommodating to homosexuals.
