    WBC to protest Auroa Victim's Memorial Tomorrow

    http://www.examiner.com/article/the-...morial-service

    There will be counter protesters there as well, to form a human wall to keep the WBC bigots out. If I lived in that area, I'd join the counter guys, if only to observe. Unfortunately, 10,000 miles might be a bit far to drive.

    I heard this earlier too and its enough to make me post as much as i don't want to at this time. when i read that it made me sick, literally sick. what is wrong with some people in this world. i cannot believe this, would they like it if people protested there lovely mothers funeral saying such things about her or there daughter or son? i highly doubt it, but then again they would probably believe that theres no way there great family member could be anything but just below greatness. I shouldn't let these people get to me just as we as a group shouldn't either but seriously Ive dealt enough with these guys for one of my Marine team members funeral too there sick and spreading there sickness as if it was "Gods word." I hope I'm in Aurora in time to help keep these sickos from getting to the mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters, and friends effected by this.

    We're actually not that far away, but the notice is too short. I really want to go with a sack full of my daughter's $#!tty diapers. Those people worse than suck.

    I'm convinced they're marxist lawyers who endeavor to marginalize the "religious right". No "conservative", right wing religious republican has ever participated in or endorsed the actions of these idiots.

    Do we know why they're gonna protest? Gays, soldiers, I get it. Innocent bystanders trying to enjoy life and watch a movie? That is beyond me. Btw, just cause I get it doesn't mean I agree with it.

    as far as I'm aware they have been praying for more dead, and saying god sent him here for us and all the dead including all the children are "gay". you know the normal crazy stuff expected. some i cannot even repeat. i don't know exactly what there going to protest tomorrow but regardless its unacceptable to me.

    Either because God Hates Innocent Victims, God Hates People Who Eat Popcorn, or God Hates Batman? Sorry, but that's the best I can come up with.

    As has already been mentioned, the Phelps tribe survives by filing lawsuits against anybody they can. Often it is easier and cheaper to settle with them than to fight it out over principles and justice.

    While I can understand the disgust over their positions and pronouncements, I believe that the best way to deal with them is to ignore them rather than to continually show up in an effort to "block" their message. They do a good enough job on their own of acting the buffoon that they do not need our help. The news covers the counter-protest which means their message also gets coverage - directly or indirectly. Regardless, they win. If they are ignored they will eventually either go away or be seen as the nutjob jerks they are.

    stay safe.

    Skid hit the nail square on the head. These people (if you'll excuse my use of the word in describing them) feed off hate and publicity. "Church"? No. Christian? Not by any stretch of the word I've ever seen. "Baptist"? I don't know of any Baptist association that would claim them; not even the Southern Baptist Convention at its worst (I can remember a time when deacons and pastors of a lot of SBC churches were active in a certain hate group.).

    Yes, almost all of the adults are lawyers. The patriarch of the family is a disbarred lawyer and is not an ordained minister of any denomination of which I am aware.

    Wasn't there a story last year about the WBC going to protest a funeral, and all the towns residents cars ended up parked behind any car with Alabama (?) licenses plates, and the tow trucks were "backed up" for several hours until after the funeral, and one of the church members was at a gas station spouting off about how they were going to protest, and he was beaten up in front of a crowd of witnesses who "didn't see anything"?

    These people include themselves in the hate they spew, they also fully believe they've been damned to hell. The "What if it was your son?" argument will not work with them since they believe no matter what they do they cannot be redeemed.
