The Westboro Baptist cult is despicable. They have no decency at all.

I think it’s about time to declare the Westboro cult a domestic terror organization.

What a despicable flotsam of scum.

First time I've ever said "Good for the Teamsters."

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.

I find that rather ironic because the Teamsters terrorized me and my family for two years when I was young.

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.

These things do happen. Also, it can be very hard to find hotel rooms in Boston. Sometimes it's almost impossible.

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..

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.

sued the Teamsters into poverty I think I could be happy with that outcome.

They are a small group of lawyers. They make a living by suing people.

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.

I suppose it is important to keep reminding people of the basic facts of the Westboro Baptist Church.

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 God’s 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.
