This is completely like bombing women’s clinics or blowing yourself up on a crowded bus in the name of “God”. I’m sure the Christian thing would be to find forgiveness in your heart for these morons. It’s just amazing to me that someone could not only be filled with so much hate but then try to blame God for it.
I grew up Catholic and have friends of all sorts of religions and I’ve never asked what someone was doing that weekend and got the answer “picketing a funeral”.
I’m going to wait for the head of the “Westboro Baptist Church” Fred Phelps to kick the bucket and write “picket funeral” in my datebook for that weekend. Unbelievable. Here’s his wisdom “Fred Phelps leads the church, which demostrates their strong conviction against gays, lesbians and soldiers by picketing. The Topeka, Kansas based group has made headlines in the past after picketing at the funeral’s of soldiers carrying signs reading “Thank God for Dead Soldiers” and “God Hates Fags.”
“God hates the, tacky bucket of slime seasoned with vomit known as Brokeback Mountain and he hates all persons having anything whatsoever to do with it,” the church writes on a flyer.
I’m probablly going to get into trouble for writing this, but, you know that’s never really stopped me before. I don’t get some things about this country. I think one of the rights we have should be reeled in a little bit..How is it illegal to yell “fire” in a crowded theater but legal to taunt and protest at a funeral? Can someone please rewrite or add some addendums to that whole “right to assemble” bit. I don’t really know what the difference between what Fred Phelps does and how hate crimes are any different.
The “Westboro Baptist Church” has already been sued for 11 million dollars for picketing a soliders funeral whose body was sent back from Iraq. Why the picket? Well you see “God hates the leniency our military has shown gays”.
God can be very insensitive sometimes, can’t he?
Yikes, this makes me so angry and so sad. Fanaticism isn’t just found overseas. Welcome to evilness found right in Topeka.
