ABC uses video of hateful Westboro Baptist Church to illustrate opposition to gay marriage

There are 78 comments on the www.foxnews.com story from Dec 12, 2012, titled ABC uses video of hateful Westboro Baptist Church to illustrate opposition to gay marriage . In it, www.foxnews.com reports that:

Apparently, ABC News can't tell the difference between opponents of gay marriage and hateful, anti-American bigots. As "World News" reporter Terry Moran highlighted the Supreme Court's decision Friday to consider the legality of same-sex marriage, video of Westboro Baptist Church picketers appeared on screen to visually represent "opponents."

Members of the small and extreme Westboro Baptist Church have disrupted the funerals of American military personal who were killed defending this country. According to Westboro Pastor Fred Phelps, U.S. soldiers are dying because of America's support for homosexuality. On June 13, 2005, the AP quoted him as saying, "Our attitude toward what's happening with the war is the Lord is punishing this evil nation for abandoning all moral imperatives that are worth a dime."

Yet, Moran announced, "For opponents of gay marriage, the very fabric of our society is at stake." During this voiceover, video showed Westboro protesters with signs reading "God hates America." (Other signs that the group is known for include "God hates fags" and "Pray for more dead soldiers.") After that footage rolled, Moran's piece immediately cut to a Family Research Council (FRC) representative.

And I hooked up an old computer and a telephone and a calculator and now have Windows 8 on it. And, since you put $100 into the Red Cross bucket, I sent Hillary $1000 for her election.

Which stories are more tough to believe? My silly made up ones, or your lies?

Actually, as more and more average Americans embrace the idea of same sex marriage, the "opposition" is naturally dwindling down to the lunatic fringe who are exemplified perfectly by the radically insane members of the WBC and their ilk. They will eventually be regarded properly as the dregs of civilized society, as are racists, who are accurately portrayed as knuckle-dragging KKK members and uneducated cretins.
Eventually inbreeding will naturally rid the earth of the Phelps' Kult.

I personally prefer to be labeled an anti gay bigot or any other insults you can muster up than go along with the mental illness afoot in this cursed land. I saw an article yesterday of a 50 yr "transgendered" (yes man) man playing on a girls college basketball team. it makes me want to puke. If that is normal in america then WBC is right. You deserve more dead.
Your Christianity, it is just so unbelievably Christlike, I'd almost swear as if Jesus himself had come down to post a sociopathic hissy fit. Just so darn scripturally and divinely inspired, I sit back agog.

Matthew 7:22-23 & good luck, your allegedly Christian ass is gonna need it.

I'm sure that's a metal bed that hangs from the side of a cement wall. But he probably smelted the iron to create that! LOL

Have you NO human decency? To gloat about death the day after one of the worst mass killings in American history and you can joke about people dying?

Don't you love anyone, care about anyone? Would you laugh if someone close to you died, either peacefully or in unspeakable violence?

Twenty children under 7 died yesterday by hideous violence. Has that had no effect on you?

For the love of God, have some compassion and human dignity. If you don't like me, fine. Just don't gloat about others dying.

That's putting it mildly, it is more like true evil. I have not ever seen anything so full of hate and poison. What a misery his poor pitiful existence must be. I almost pity him.

That's odd. For some reason when this topic first came up I couldn't stop thinking of Popsicle sticks and those macaroni art pictures.

I heard that every time a woman sees you naked she says, "Oh how cute you brought incense".

Then her friend says, "That explains his car".

Then her grandmother says "Toss some water on it, maybe it will grow"

Then your wife says, "Tried that, it shrunk"

I tried pity now it's just hate. I know I shouldn't feel that but...I wish he'd stop posting, he ruins every post and leaves no room for intelligent discussion with anyone, just back and forth banter. I'm guilty of it too, but now I'm so bored with all of it that I don't even respond anymore.

I notice a lot of Topix regulars seem to be not logging on anymore. I have lost my appetite for it lately also. The fun of it died on Friday morning and the fact that they are literally dancing in glee on children's coffins is sickening and disturbing and makes me wonder if THEY might take up a powerful weapon and enter a fast food joint. It would be ironic if they picked a Chick-filet-A.

I'm sure if you go to the Sandy Hook School you can get in and feed on the dead children's blood, you ghoul.

show some human compassion. If not for us, then for them. Or, are you incapable?
