Clearly Westboro Baptist Church sees hate as a viable growth industry. First it was just the LGBTQ community. Then they branched out to dead military and America in general. Now Jews and Catholics. Somewhere out there they are going to create a major backlash and collect millions in court judgments.

I believe they already lost a a lawsuit for millions. I think they're appealing it as most of the WBC wackos are lawyers.

People just completely ignore these loons. Without publicity, they die.

Just ignore them.

Yes. People should not comment on them. They live for publicity. Without that they die.

Everyone should ignore them completely, and never even acknowledge their existence in any way, shape or form.

I would never encourage violence of any kind. On the other hand, if a distraught mourner, temporarily insane in a fit of blind righteous rage got hold of a tire iron and Fred's face was beaten to fine pulp what jury would convict? What jury would award them anything?

Not sayin' just sayin'

No one do this OK? Just to be clear.

I am NOT encouraging it, but it seems clear to me someone will take a tire iron to them. It's clear they want that. That's why they list where and when they are going to antagonize vulnerable people.

At least Phelps is one hot mofo, huh?

Bury him face down, he would like it in China.

Put a guard up to make sure he does not get dug up.

And of course, will anyone notice or care?

He looks like the evil ghost pastor in "Poltergeist II"! All he needs is a big black hat.

Most christians are just about like the Westover church. They may not publicly picket, but they do the deed of spreading hate in other ways. The are a little more covert. Bible school appears innocent, but it is where they brain-wash little children to "do as I (God) tells you - or you will burn in everlasting flames." "Yes, God loves you unconditionally- as long as you do what I (he) tells you is right to do." " I will pick and choose what scriptures you will follow, and what ones to ignore." Get 'em brainwashed while they are young. A tactic used for years.
People of lower intelligence, those that can't think for themselves - all tend to follow these perpetrators of hate and fear. Why just a few years ago, people where tortured and put to unspeakable death for even questioning religious leaders. They were labeled heretics and blasphemers. Religion continues to destroy mankind. When will people ever learn.
Don't fear the Westover picketers. You have plenty to fear in your own neighborhood.

We know all Christians are nothing like you describe, just as we know all gays are not bitter, angry, little dweebs. Get a grip. Be a man. Represent.

HAHAHA you can use all the smoke and mirrors you wish, but you just made yourself into a fool. At least I have spoken the truth, and the facts bear out just that. All you can do, is cowardly hide behind a keyboard and type little insults and big untruths. You need to get the grip. When you have some facts to print, please do. Otherwise, you babblings are just that: Babblings. You proved my point that most haters are those of low intelligence. Your post of false generalizations and name-calling. simply because I don't like the 'christian' interference with my promised freedoms, is purely laughable.
