Westboro hits my town

Westboro hits my town
http://www.wvec.com/news/Controversial-c...92847.html

Luckily the amount of counter protesters exceeded theirs at some venues and there was no violence. I'm glad the children at theese schools didn't get the message. I wish I had caught this before not after this weekend.
"There ought to be a term that would designate those who actually follow the teachings of Jesus, since the word 'Christian' has been largely divorced from those teachings, and so polluted by fundamentalists that it has come to connote their polar opposite: intolerance, vindictive hatred, and bigotry." -- Philip Stater, Huffington Post

It hit Boston a few months ago.

The best thing, though, was that counter protest where people made signs about anything.

I'd like to give Christians a bit more credit than that.

Well, I remember when Louis Theroux made his documentary, and if memory serves, they said that they gladly spent upwards of 1/5 of $1 million every year on plane fare to travel across the country for 45 minute pickets with almost everybody who comes across them finding them repugnant. I don't know where the money comes from either. For the record, in the documentary, not only did they come to my home town, but I actually drive past the space they picketed at no less than once a week.

By the way, if Addicted to Hate is an accurate source of info on Fred Phelps' past, it appears that, considering that he spent much of his life with a family as an abusive asshole, I would have to say that their rabid, Maldororian misanthropy actually is a step up.
