The anti-LGBT Westboro Baptist Church has blamed Monday’s bombing of the Boston Marathon on same sex marriage and has promised to protest at the funerals of the victims.
In a press release posted to Twitter, Westboro thanked God for the attack and announced its plan to “picket the funeral of those killed.”

Westboro to picket Boston funerals, blames ‘fag marriage’ for bombings

Westboro go away please and take your hatred elsewhere.  These people don't want you anywhere around.

These Westboro people need to be shut down. I hope they are on the FBI's watch list and I hope they slip up and get nailed on something.

I doubt they'll actually show. They're just using this to get attention.

War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things: the decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth a war, is much worse...A man who has nothing which he is willing to fight for, nothing which he cares more about than he does about his personal safety, is a miserable creature who has no chance of being free, unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.

Maybe they should be considered suspects in the bombings.  That would give them the attention they want.

Agreed.  

It wouldn't end well for the WBC...there are large groups of people in Boston that wouldn't react well to this.  These people are quick to anger and quicker to act without thinking.  I wouldn't want them upset with me and they are all related to me.  I have a HUGE family present in Boston and the surrounding area.  My uncle was in the marathon.  I'm thankful he's old and slow.  Aunt was at about the 20 marker.

Just because it is a mystery to YOU doesn't make it unexplained.

STORM - a must watch - caution, some profanity and may cause you to experience reason.

I don't think that Westboro qualifies as being Christian in the first place....

"A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another; as I have loved you, that you also love one another.  By this all will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another."  John 13:34-35

One's reality is another's nightmare.

:tu: I guess they haven't read all the Bible passages where Jesus tells everyone to love one another...

No it wasn't, it was about the Sandy Hook victims but Westboro had a problem with that too.  I really don't think these people are Christians, they are too full of hate.

Its good to see that people are seeing through the WBC Bull.
I used to get tired of seeing all of Christianity condemned because of these idiots.
I may not agree with the LGBT lifestyle but that doesnt give me the right to do any of the stuff these people are doing.
Live and let live.
and if god was going to punish anyone, it would be them for using his name to promote their hatred.

It is a shame, and somewhat suprising, that so many here no longer believe in this: "I do not agree with what you have to say, but I'll defend to the death your right to say it."

" 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

WBC should be hauled in for interrogation, that would stop their crap (no attempt to bypass the profanity filter). They are one of the most hateful groups in the USA today, and quite capable of taking their extremism out on the streets.

Free Speech is one thing, Free Speech to incite HATRED is quite another

Thankfully our founding fathers didn't agree with you. "Free speech as long as as it doesn't make me angry." No thanks, I'll take the 1st amendment FTW.
