The Westboro Baptist Church, the controversial group known for protesting outside funerals of slain U.S. service members, announced that it will picket a vigil for the victims of Friday's Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting, the second-deadliest school shooting in American history.

Maybe we should start picketing this church every Sunday and let people know this is where the devil lives and he is trying to fool you into thinking these people have anything to do with God.

Surely the time has come to simply outlaw this evil gang.

If, as it seems, we are in the process of becoming a totalitarian society in which the state apparatus is all-powerful, the ethics most important for the survival of the true, free, human individual would be: cheat, lie, evade, fake it, be elsewhere, forge documents, build improved electronic gadgets in your garage that’ll outwit the gadgets used by the authorities.

Westboro just whats their usual attention like a spoiled child, I just wish media wouldn't give it to them.  I have found, more and more the local bikers show up and give them a bad time. :yes:

Although this groups views sicken me, the fact remains, sadly enough, that they have the same rights as anyone else regarding free speech.

Thats the whole point, being able to express your opinion or views, regardless of how other people feel about it.

Maybe they will be the next target of an unbalanced violent attack. After all, according to their reteric, it would be Gods will (possibly punishing them for perverting his words and intentions and causing so much pain to innocent others)

If something horrible happens to Westboro, would Westboro picket Westboro?

That would just give them the attention that they so desperately crave.

I say we, as a people, should start boycotting any news program that puts these horrible people on the air.

It is called free will.

" Mighty little force is needed to control a man whose mind has been hoodwinked; contrariwise, no amount of force can control a free man, a man whose mind is free. No, not the rack, not fission bombs, not anything —you can't conquer a free man; the most you can do is kill him" - Robert Heinlein

The last video showed a daughter who had left the church...GOOD on her...hard to believe her family was so cold...kinda renews my faith in the human race, though. May God bless her for having the integrity to leave (she started questioning and pointing out the hypocrisy of the "church" and I guess they didn't take kindly to that, neither did the Pharisees). Anyway, I really admire her for that, and she was a former Westboroian, so goes to show I guess...never give up hope! I guess that's what I'm trying to say anyway...
Eta: Also, GOOD on you, Sakari, for being a member of the Patriot Guard!
