Well I survived Westboro Baptists coming to scream at my church this weekend. They held vile signs and screamed at the top of their lungs. They fit us in on their tour of the state. Lucky us. Our church, the temple and the synagogue all got really nice support from the community, which was really nice. They plan on attending the miners funerals to scream some more. Where do these people come from and how do they end up like this?

If you don't know them

I think everyone should respond like this if they get the opportunity:
Jason Connell used the appearance of the hate group to raise money for queer rights groups such as Human Rights Campaign, International AIDS Foundation and Chicago based Jerusalem Open House. Donations were named in honor of the Westboro Baptist Church and community thank you cards will be sent from the non-profits to WBC

____ I know that they have a legal right to protest, it just galls the poop out of me. To me, you do not pick and choose what scripture to follow, you follow the whole set of books.

So you support women being beaten to death in front of their fathers if they can't prove that they're virgins on their wedding night?

The bible has some really f'd up stuff in it.

So...I knew nothing about "WBC," and having skimmed the Wikipedia article, wish that was still true.

Honest question: WTF purpose do they serve?
It seems that /everything/ is wrong to them. They appear to be 'religious' trolls. (I use that adjective lightly, but not the noun.)

____ Picking and choosing, they only did that so they would not have to return the dowry.

It is possible that might be an insult to trolls, Dragonman. [Smile]

I suppose that they might serve as an example of how not to live your life. They certainly represent a vile and disgusting slice of humanity.

____ I fear that with the scandals with the Catholic Church and these people that too many people will draw the wrong conclusion about Christians. I try to be a good ambassador and not a millstone, on faith, Yes I could try to witness to all of you but the best witness is live the life and walk the talk.

Hello Everybody!

Hello! Hello! Hello! I am in a very good mood today. These West-Burrow animals will not get me down.

I will tell you what. No offence!

I think maybe the Romans were right! Some Christians need to be fed to the lions! Yummy!

Not the Detroit Lions, though, because they aren't very good lions at all.

Have a great day!

Mr. Geek 2U!
