Somebody figure this one out please.
I have no "love" for the sodomites, but Phelps inc. are missing the boat. They're too over-the-top (possibly by design) & thus their "message" isn't received by the general public. I suspect their "schtick" is just a ploy for publicity. This crap of protesting fallen soldier's funerals & holding signs saying "miners in hell" is total BS! That garbage is uncalled for & totally disrespectful. [img]smileys/smiley7.gif[/img]

This is hilarious -- the BBC tries to keep up with the WBC!

Oh, great -- now the word "fags" joins the word "n i g g e r" in the liberal lexicon of "too sacred to be read or heard"!

Nothing is said about chasing them down -- I guess to call the police would only only mean harassment.
LIBERALS ARE NEVER GUILTY OF ANYTHING, even throwing a supersize drink at the head of a 6-year-old boy. This is just a normal day in liberaldumb. Libs get to hit and kill people, but since love is the answer and All You Need And Love and liberals are the children of Jawnny Lennon, it's all right. Let it be, let it be, let it be, let it be.

Members of a so-called Kansas
“church” that attracted national attention for their hateful, anti-gay
protests at the funerals of U.S. military members have won their appeal
to the U.S. Supreme Court in a case that tested the meaning of the constitutional right of free speech guaranteed by the First Amendment.
The church is coming to my town on
Saturday and talk radio is atwitter with righteous indignation. I
just wrote a normally great talk station in Greenville:
I believe Westboro Baptist's message
could be summed up as "You didn't listen to God or the founding
fathers regarding military adventurism, America. You didn't listen
to common sense or the biggest protest movement in history as "W"
dragged us into raping Afghanistan and Iraq. You'll put up with
endless warmongering and sacrifice any number of your children to
the war god and continue stifling your conscience. If you wouldn't
listen to all those warnings, will you hear it via our desperate,
extreme shock tactics? Because otherwise, America, you are doomed and
you know it!"
Politicians, media mavens and citizen
jingoists technically have the right to abuse the First Amendment and
everything decent by promoting war, aggression and national suicide, I suppose.
Lost in most discussion of WBC is the fact that we who want
Constitutional government and a sane, peaceable, moral national life
are clearly in the right -- but basically left in the dust once some
lamebrain so-called President ameriKa into another geopolitical
I don't instinctively like the idea of Westboro's protests, but if they help even one young person to decide not
to join the killing machine, maybe they're worth it.
LATER -- the day of: Heard sirens and a chopper fly over my house a few blocks from the church so I just went over there to have a looksee, ready to cash in on my having written the Phelpses up in the NT a few years ago. The protesters didn't appear -- only the biker groups that were formed to shield families from Westboro protesters at funerals. I talked to a few who told me Westboro had made a deal with Greenville radio for on-air interviews in lieu of carrying out the protest but they, the bikers, turned out at the church just in case. There were a few police around, mostly to help people cross the busy side street, quite a number of gawkers scattered over blocks, and two people interviewing the latter on unmarked TV-style video cameras.
Since the scene inside was all about the greatness and nobility of our hired killers and the one outside in response to people trying to sound a desperately-needed warning about such jingoism, there was a painful air of irony about the whole thing. I think I hear the bikers' noisy wheels escorting the family to the military cemetery now..........
