Thread: San Francisco’s Answer to Westboro Baptist Church

It's a long way to anywhere from there and strangers are rarely seen, although the disaster brought media from far and wide.

    For some reason, Wesboro Baptist Church members changed their minds about that protest. They were last seen speeding down that mountain road.

    I like the funny signs, but nobody in Upshur County was in a comic mood in January of 2006.
    Dead victims of mining, too? Their hatred is more like that of demons than that of God.

    Oh, we know. It's basically one family with a few outside recruits looking to belong to something. Some in the family have even defected from their circle.

    When Westboro came to Richmond VA individuls had pledged to make donations to the organizations they were attacking. So for every Westboro protestor the organization received monetary donations. I thought it was brilliant!

    I was playing around on the computer the other day. Out of curiosity I went to their blog and I totally regret it. Reading the stuff on it just made my stomach sick. They were thanking god for dead children. There are no words to describe these people. I know there is hatred out in the world, which is sad to begin with, but their hatred takes it to a whole new level.

    Stay safe my son. See you around thanksgiving!

    I want to be clear that no violence was used against the Westboro ghouls. What kept the "protesters" away from the funeral was that a large number of the people of the area held hands to form a barricade at a distance from the church. The locals kept their backs turned to the sickos, depriving them of confrontation while they protected the family services. Even the media had the grace to ignore the attention seekers.

    I just had a flash back from the 1980's

    It is unfortunate there are people like Wesboro Baptist Church that do the things they do.
