    Westboro Church got what they deserved

    Westboro Church (AKA God hates **** church) was protesting a funeral of a fallen Soldier in Seaford, Delaware. But when they got there, they found a very angry mob.

    Re: Westboro Church got what they deserved

    These people are why I dislike organized religion. They hide behind the bible and spew their hate speach in the name of god. They are the lowest form of scum.

    I could say a lot more about them, but it would get me banned if I really told you what I thought.

    It is a free country until you try to protest a funeral and you find a windshield is a lousy line of defense against an angry mob. Then you exit stage right. The group is another version of extremists....

    There is not a level in hell low enough for a person that would protest a soldiers funeral.

    Re: Westboro Church got what they deserved

    Westboro was at the ISU-NU game in Lincoln this year, just under the walking bridge by the train tracks next to Memorial Stadium. Big signs, "GOD HATES NEBRASKA" "WORSHIP GOD NOT SPORTS", "SPORTS FANATICS GO TO HELL", etc.

    Every Nebraska fan around us was apologetic. "Please, ignore them. They're from Kansas, not Nebraska...they're morons."

    I did get to have some fun with them, though. Got a big laugh out of all the Husker fans when I yelled down at them,

    "YOU'RE GOD **** RIGHT I'M GOING TO HELL! AND I'M TAKING ALL OF YOU WITH ME! MUHAHAHAHAHA! AH HA HA HA HA HA!"

    Had about five people come up to me, "You're alright. We should be friends...you know you're going to lose, though."

    *sigh*

    These clowns are a cult, not a church. It would be like hating all Hawkeyes just because of one idiot...okay, bad example.

    This is not a real church. No real Christian would act like that.

    Agreed. Westboro Baptist "Church" is not an organized religion. It's not even a church. It could best be described as a cult, perhaps, but even that term implies more organization and structure than the group actually has. It's a collection of about 90 people, all of whom are related to founder Fred Phelps by blood or marriage. This is essentially a dysfunctional extended family that is ruled by a anti-authoritarian narcissist with sociopathic tendencies.

    Re: Westboro Church got what they deserved

    Guys, guys. Let's not turn this into a religious debate. Let's keep our hate focused on where it belongs.

    In any case, there is a problem with the video. I think we all can agree that VIOLENCE is NOT the answer. There's a much better way to deal with Westboro:

    Not a Michael Moore fan, but if you can find on youtube his following them(WBC) in Topeka you will laugh very hard!!! I laughed so hard my partners at the firm came in and joined in on the laugh.

    As far as depth goes though, the combination of White, Woodbury, Olaseni, Basabe, and Uthoff is much better than Niang, Ejim, Edozie, Gibson. Not because of the top 2, but because of the next 2 or 3. -DeanVogs

    You mean this one?

    I don't know about anybody else, but I'd absolutely love it if people would donate enough money so these guys could make a living following Westboro around the country.

    Re: Westboro Church got what they deserved

    I'd be willing to bet the Westboro freaks fall under the category of:

    1. Home-schooled dorks (you know, the freaks most kids want to beat up)
    2. People who never got any attention growing up and now they're the "LOOK AT ME, SOMEONE PLEASE LOOK AT ME! I GO AGAINST THE GRAIN BECAUSE NO ONE CARES ABOUT ME AND I NEED TO MAKE A STATEMENT AND GET ATTENTION!!!" type.
    3. Complete nut who's easily influenced and manipulated (aka weak minded)

    And this is different than the three categories of nearly everyone else in our society how?

    Unless you're saying they fall under all three at once, that is.
