Support our troops against this kind of nonsense.

– Wiccapundit


Most Christians, I don’t have a problem with.  The “God Hates Fags” Westboro Baptist Church pseudo-Christians, I have a BIG problem with.  Not only are their actions contrary to everything I understand about Christianity, but their interference with military funerals is unspeakable.

Now, the father of a slain Marine has been ordered to pay over $16,000 in appeals costs to the despicable Fred Phelps’s group.

Here is a link where you can make online donations to help defray the legal cost’s for the father of this fallen warrior.  Please consider helping with whatever you can, and consider contacting your representatives to support legislation restricting this awful behavior.

NOTE: the Supreme Court has consistently upheld reasonable “time, place, and manner” restrictions on free speech, so such a law would be constitutional in my view, balancing the First Amendment rights of the “protesters” with the constitutionally protected privacy rights of the mourners at military funerals.

    I think pseudo-Christians is way too good a word for them. Using Christ’s name to spread their hate is beyond barbaric. And thanks for the link, on my way to donate now.

    I read this and then I read the article about the Marine’s father and then went looking for any other information I could find and turned to James S. and asked “I’m still trying to figure out what dead soldiers have to do with gays anyway?”

    His response? “That’s becuase you’re using logic.”

    However after a bit more looking around I found Phelp’s logic. Piss poor logic but logic non-the-less. The chain is as follows –

    America accepts homosexuals(and lesbians and pagans) – God is angry – soldiers are dying in Iraq and Afghanistan – God is killing soldiers – Must protest all soldiers as ‘fag lovers’

    Mind l could be completely wrong since I have a brain and his apparently dribbled out of his ears at some point.

      Danette, I think the logic goes something like this:

      “How can I get more of the spotlight on ME, ME, ME? Make up some stupid shit that makes no sense; oh, how about spew ‘God Hates Fags’ at military funerals – that’ll get EVERYBODY torqued up and get me and my name in the media spotlight. Yeah, that’ll work.”

      Honestly, are there ANY Christians who AREN’T embarassed by this guy?

      BTW, in case we haven’t mentioned, thanks for James’s service to this great country.

        *cackle, cackle* James had just climbed into bed when I happened to look on the page and saw this. I told him about it and he pulled the covers over his head and said in a little voice, “please stop embarassing me.” *cackle*

  3. How come they do not protest here in New York City? I did not see one of these morons while working during the Gay Pride Parade. Oh I know why all 6 of them would disappear into the East River.
