T_Bird says: "I will repeat that I'm think what they are doing is in very bad taste and they should rethink their actions. It is because of people like they are protesting that fought and payed the ultimate price so that they have the freedoms that they enjoy. "

That was more than a bit convoluted; yet, I think T Bird was trying to say:'WBC have the right to say what they say because the dead soldier died to protect their right to do so'.

Believing the propaganda for a moment; T_Bird bitches because he doesn't like what WBC say; and that after saying the soldier's death gives WBC the right to do so.

Someone is letting his comical feelings get in the way of his hard head. No T_Bird here, just a CUCKOO.

Phineas: What I was saying is that WBC are nothing but a bunch of hypocrits since they fail to realize that it's because of those in the military, those that have served, are serving and those that have paid the ultimate price past and present protecting our country and Constitution that's given them the right to do what they do.

I'm ex-military and I totally hate what they do but I served to defend and protect our Contitution which gives you, me and WBC the right to freedom of speech.

Nothing comical or a hard head getting in the way just simple facts that either you have freedom of speech for everyone or no one there is no middle ground in the Contitution.

Easy legal solution for all military. Contact a smart law firm which will headup a Class Action suit against this so-called church. The reasoning is simple "Defamation of Character". Yes, the Constitution does allow for freedoms, but there are lines in the sand that should not be crossed for any reason and this is one of them. Whether good or not good intentions, this church has performed less than what should ever be done. The class action suit should require proof and actual facts, not bible passages to this point. Please, Rev Phelps, do not think that you do not have the spirit of the man from the wilderness who needs to tell the Philestines that they are on the road to ruin. Prove to the legal side, that your story is factual and not just a personal opinion. I really hope that a class action suit comes along and that the real truth comes out.

ODA973: Honestly the only lines in the sand is those that lawmakers have put in place that goes beyond their power and usurps the Constitution. The Constitution sets very clear standards there is no middle ground or line in the sand and once you start limiting any kind of speech no matter what kind it is where does it stop? I really don't think that we want to go down that road even though our lawmakers try to everyday to usurp the Constitution.

As a PGR member and Army wife these SO called people need to just fall off the face of the earth. How can they call themselfs christians and do what they do. Have signs that says god hates america. They need to be dropped right in the middle of Iraq and see how they like it over there.
I say that when they start to do a protest that the police should make them leave or move at the least a mile away. I am a christian and I support our troops and the familys of those troops. That is what real americans do not protest against them and make the familys have to deal with that.
come on supreme court do the right thing make them pay.Do NOT vote for them that would be a big mistake all the way around. Show us real americans that you are also real americans and do not stand for what those idots do. HOOAH to our troops.
Right on! They (WBC and Phelps), are the children of the fallen angel and are only attempting to use tricks and lies. When questioned, they fall onto the Constitution. If, while protesting at a funeral, they were attacked or protected against, they would be the first to call for legal constitutional protection. Thank you for your input and see if there is a chance for legal action against these self profamed evangalists (of the fallen angel) in the name of Defamation of Character. Could you imagine nearly two million signed; the legal firms should be lined up for this for just the monetary reward (30% or more) they will get back.

Agree and yet disagree. Our Judicial lawmakers are doing just this everyday when asked to interpret the law or the Constitution itself. My opinion, limited of course, is that this becomes a moral issue that is not contained in the Constitution. The infringement of a funeral procession, at any distance is not right, nor should it be legal even under the constition.

I would agree that on a moral grounds it is wrong, but if you start limiting one set of people then where does it end there end lies the problem. When thinking about limiting one set of peoples speech on "moral" grounds you open a door that really shouldn't be opened because what may be morally right to you may not be to someone else and in this instance I'm not talking about what's going on with WBC. It just opens up to many possibilities to really limit free speech. Lets say the lawmakers pass a law saying it's morally wrong for the WBC to say what they do ( and the Supreme Court sides with Congress) then they get the bright idea to pass another law saying it's morally wrong to talk bad against the government or something they are doing or it's morally wrong for someone to tell what a proposed law really does when the government says it really does something else where would it end? Does that make sense?

When dealing with the Constitution sometimes one must take the bad with the good in order to ensure everyones freedoms are protected and I think this is one of those times.

"Everyone whom honours my Master will never say such a thing. EVER! They will only have PRAISE and ADORATION for WBC. WBC are REAL soldiers. They fight REAL BATTLES. Topekans should be so proud. WBC fight for all mankind. They are on the WINNING side for two reasons. 1. Their hearts and minds are in the right place. 2. My Master said so."

Be very careful what you ask for and that is a WBC dictatorship and cult. Next thing, your master will convince you to deliver all of your property and money to invest in a safe place in South America. Then when things get really tough; expecting the rapture, you will be given laced gator aid (at gunpoint), so that you can enjoy the bonding that WBC type have created. Beware of false prophets and allow the meek to inherit the earth.

Can you or the WBC even relate to the military at all? Your statement about anyone as being a coward should be looked upon with distain by anyone who has put their life on the line so that you can practice religious freedom. If the WBC had its way in this world climate, you would see a complete change alright, you will see anarchary at its best. Choose your words and thoughts carefully. Aldoph Hitler was also a religious fanatic and if he would have had his way, your master would be the Third Reich; you would also be banned from involvement with any thought of religious freedoms.

So, as in tennis, over to you.

ODA973 struggles; yet feebly makes the grade. Well done ODA973. Over to me huh?

(May I say it is a pleasure to finally find someone with a brain on the forum)

ODA973, you say:

>> "Can you or the WBC even relate to the military at all?

Well done ODA973; you have hit the nail on the head. I can only speak for myself, and not WBC, yet, What you call 'anarchy' I take to mean... If WBC had their way, they would be like tyrants!

Sure they would pal; I make no apologies or excuses for their tyranny. I just wonder if it will be as HARSH as my Masters. My Master is gonna make Hitler look like a boy scout.

Ya see; what we are talking about is a world of evil useless bastards. Corrupt, filthy, fully partaking of the Devil's evil deeds. They are fit only for the fires of HELL! Yet some of them, my Master will retrain. Others; He will discard as faggot fuel for the eternal fires of hell.

And that servant, which knew his lord's will, and prepared not himself, neither did according to his will, shall be beaten with many stripes. Luk 12:47

Yeah; that guy was lucky. All the while;

And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a ROD OF IRON: and her child was caught up unto God, and to his throne. Rev 12:5

And he that overcometh, and keepeth my works unto the end,[ie. Pastor Phelps & WBC] to him will I give power over the nations: And he shall rule them with a ROD OF IRON; as the vessels of a potter shall they be broken to shivers: even as I received of my Father. And I will give him the morning star. He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.(Rev 2:26-29)

And out of his mouth goeth a SHARP SWORD, that with it he should SMITE the nations: and he shall rule them with a ROD OF IRON: and he TREADETH the winepress of the FIERCENESS and WRATH of ALMIGHTY GOD. Rev 19:15

Hey pal; be careful what you don't wish for. It will be the indictment, that sends you to HELL. For you are a cowardly bastard, because you have no stomach; to fight the GOOD FIGHT! Don't you know?

For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned. Mat 12:37
