I worship trees. I can feel and touch them. Sometimes I even rub my weiner up against them. I am glad you respect my beliefs since my belief is something I can both see and touch. I can also hear them creaking in the breeze. You can usually find me worshipping my god at Ritter Park on warm days. I am the guy in the trenchcoat. The yellow trench coat, not the guy in the blue one or the other guy in the beige one.

This cult was started by their father, who was a racist loon. They are all family. Cousin's marry cousin's. It's just that simple.

It takes a brave man to beat up women and kids. Would you hit the mom while the kid watched?

Maybe the mothers would have risked losing their children by attacking another person in their presence. Most courts would consider that abusive and neglectful.

So the motto to live by is: "If you believe or say something I disagree with I will fight you?"

That is a good way to bully everyone into all thinking the same. In fact, didn't the Soviets employ similar tactics?

Real American values.

Perhaps consider that our brave soldiers have died protecting our freedoms. Those freedoms include the free speech practiced by hateful groups like Westboro Baptist Church.

oh so you are telling me that you wouldn't care if these psychotic people came to your son or daughters funeral and protested because of something they did that THEY believed in! What gives them the right? oh. I'm sorry that would be our military. And as far as "most courts"... well hmmmm...

having the common knowledge ( and courtesy) to know when to and not to use your rights is what I respect. these people obviously have NO respect for anyone or anything!! I was out there and was VERY happy to be! As the family drove buy you could see that they were glad we were there too.

I would do it over and over again if it would keep the stupidity away!

Our first ammendment rights are a joke, you can say anything you want as long as you are a liberal or a democrat but if your conservative you will get your ass tossed in jail for enciting unrest. Go call a muslim a a$$hole or something, or a black person, or a homosexual and you will be run out of town. Buuut if you are a liberal you can walk up to someone and tell them they should be killed for what they believe in and they can get away with harassing your family and destroying your property and anything else they want to do. First ammendment rights my a$$, this country has been destroyed by the left and we may as well just give up on it and whatever you do dont have any children in this miserable crap hole because in about ten yrs. or so your daughter will be forced to wear a burkah. Rights, ha ha ha!
I am a moderate democrat that agrees with you. Free speech is not a one way street. We need more reasonable moderate people in this country, or it will not last much longer

It figures that an airman would support westboros freedom of speech. Your comment and your spelling is vile. Both you and them have the freedom of experiencing a USMC style beat down. Oorah. Kill.
