Or they are just doing a good thing.
The Westboro Baptist cult is despicable. They have no decency at all.
funny they don’t pretect American soldier’s families at funerals agaisnt htose westoboroow maggots-
time and a half, no doubt
i read that wrong- i thought were formign a shield for for the bomber’s funeral- not the victims- disreagard my previous post-
They are planning protests for the West, TX funerals as well. Good luck with that.
The WB are demonic.
I think I’d rather have the Westboro Baptist Church at my funeral.
Maybe these guys can kick some ass for a good cause while they are at it instead of assaulting conservatives at campaign time.
I think it’s about time to declare the Westboro cult a domestic terror organization.
What a despicable flotsam of scum.
Toss up as to who to have and my burial. Thug teamsters or crazy people.
They should carry brick bats, mace and long swords.
Or just napalm those losers
You are an idiot. Feel free to add me to your wall.
Sure would be a shame if the Westboro Baptists' cars were all illegally parked and had to be towed.
Westboro has done more for the homosexual movement than anyone. Now any opposition to the homosexual agenda is instantly marginalized by being associated with this scum. Got to wonder if its all a set up. Groups leader has run for office multiple times as a democrat.
You are not legendary enough
“Members of the Westboro Baptist Church are expected to protest. “
Why these evil people are still breathing; still amazes me.
“Got to wonder if its all a set up.”
No you don’t.
A cruel irony, the blind leading the blind.
I find that rather ironic because the Teamsters terrorized me and my family for two years when I was young.
What is the WB protesting about?
I think she was a waitress at a steak house. Could be mistaken.
Patriot Guard Riders PING
They just protest in general at any well known funeral anymore. Anywhere they get media play. Of course, Christians are outspoken against them...very unlike muslims and their bombers.
It shouldn't. Their behavior has two purposes:
to marginalize the anti-homosexual viewpoint, and
to provoke anyone into attacking them so they can sue him. This group is all lawyers. It must be maddening for them that, no matter how outrageous their behavior, no one will give them the satisfaction of throwing a punch. Let's keep it that way.
And the paperwork at the impound lot "misfiled"
These things do happen. Also, it can be very hard to find hotel rooms in Boston. Sometimes it's almost impossible.
Get your popcorn ready!
See my post #28.
Depends.. If it’s rank and file. Teamsters all the way. Their leadership or wb??
Just plant me. No reason to have anyone there but the guy with the backhoe.
I think most of them have earned a spot on the do not rent list.
Not saying I’d condone it. But if a fire plug was plopped next to their van and it was towed. well..
or if someone let the air out of the tires at the hotel.. well..
What is the WB protesting about?
Looking for their 15 minutes of fame while being as rotten to the core as they can be.
I'll take the Patriot Guard but I am just a retiree.
The story and this thread seem to have a gag order on mentioning what the protest will be about. Something about fags? Are they for or against the fags?
No excuse for disturbing funerals. That’s just wrong.
How do these beyond-despicable members of the Westboro CULT have the means to pop up anywhere, any time at any funeral in the country? Just how many of these cult members ARE there?
You are a complete moron.
I think Southern Rock was making a joke.
Sue happy lawyers or union thug ruffians, which should it be?
They are a small group of lawyers. They make a living by suing people.
Just how many of these cult members ARE there?
Less than two dozen. They are not a cult, because they are not a church in any sense. It's just a name they chose to discredit Baptists.
Sorry, I should have mentioned that. They carry signs with outrageously anti-fag messages, such as "God hates fags", and claiming that when anything bad happens, it's because this country tolerates fags. It's part of their plan to discredit the anti-homosexual viewpoint and Christians, Baptists in particular.
This is from the 2010 Wikipedia entry on Fred Phelps, a Democrat, leader of the group:
"Phelps is a disbarred lawyer, founder of the Phelps Chartered law firm, a past civil rights activist in Kansas, and a Democrat who has five times been a candidate for political office in Kansas Democratic Party primaries."
The Southern Baptist Convention (SBC), listed in Wikipedia as the largest association of Baptists in America, has this to say about Democrat Phelps and his crew:
20. Is Fred Phelps (the pastor of the Westboro Baptist Church and leader of those who protest under the slogan "God Hates Fags") or his church affiliated with the SBC?
We share concern over the unbiblical views and offensive tactics of Fred Phelps and his followers at Westboro (Independent) Baptist Church in Topeka, Kansas. Westboro does not have now, nor has ever had, any relationship with the Southern Baptist Convention. His extreme positions not only stand in contrast to the SBC, more importantly, they stand in contrast to God's Word. Scripture clearly teaches that homosexual behavior is sinful in the eyes of a just and holy God; but the Bible also clearly proclaims Gods love for all sinners, including homosexuals, and that He offers forgiveness to all who repent and place their faith in the atoning death of Jesus Christ for our sins.
So the next time you hear some MSM propagandist lying about how Fred Phelps is a typical religious conservative, you will know the truth.
Teamsters hired a new pr firm?
I doubt anyone can find fault with them doing this, great imagine control on their end.
Somebody needs to beat these sick bastards
Put some good old fashioned fear in them
There will be at least 300 from out Texas Hunting Forum there, could get interesting.
Might I add some of them are hard core trappers, you ever smell Bob Cat or Coyote urine? Nasty stuff!
