I wish they’d go picket that young girl who was raped in Cleveland, Texas. It would be highly unfortunate for the girl, but they’d get taken care of properly and we’d all be done with them.

Their free speech is bound to run into someone else' free speech and it won't be pretty.

After all the years these jerks have been doing this, I find it hard to believe that some irate family member has not stomped the crap out of one or more members of this inbred group. Just say’n

Sometimes things like this test my faith in God, when you see a family like this destroyed and @ssholes like the Phelps can protest with glee at their funeral.

I think they do get assaulted from time to time, and they file civil suits, and that’s how they pay the bills. I don’t know if they have any other source of income.

Thank the vile supreme court that allows this garbage and I dont give a damn if most of the court are republicans. Intentional infliction of emotional distress and fighting words have never been protected speech.

The obvious answer is to wear masks and break their cameras and camera phones.

Why? What did those children do? Their parents couldn’t have been more in keeping of family values than most. This is just sick!

Technically they are not in Westboro. They are in the low rent district! No offense to the poor souls that live in the same area. They have my profound sympathy!

Yes, just imagine some hunter heading out carrying his rifle and goes by those people and trips. Or for some reason has his assault rifle(?) with him and does the same dance step. Whoda though?

Are any of these people human? Don’t any of them *ever* have a pang of conscience about doing something like this to the parents, the families, of innocent people?

Perry County is ready for them. There will be a crowd of hundreds shouting them down. Many LEOs will be present in plain clothes. The DA is looking for any excuse to throw the freaks of WBC in jail. They better not so much as spit on the sidewalk!

Friends of the Clouse family on Facebook are organizing a huge counter-protest.

WBC would be smart to back off this one!

This so-called church is really just the one family, by blood or marriage, plus a few others. There's nothing Christian about them but their claims. Anyone can memorize the Bible and extract bits and pieces to suit their whims; that isn't faith.

Four of the young adult generation broke away. The family instantly disowned them. The URL below is to an excerpt from 20/20 in which they speak without the slightest regret of how their daughter Lauren was "cast out" by the Lord (supposedly) and that they don't miss her at all. Incredible.

I am not the poster of that video and I don't share the poster's apparent atheism, but the video is an eye-opener.

These people are beyond contemptible. 20/20 excerpt on the Westboro Baptist Church (YouTube)

I've heard roads in Perry County are bad. Full of pot holes, nails, rusted sharp metal, what not. Kind of roads that can cause all the tires on the WBC to go dead flat. Heard too they're not any tire shops in the area that stock tires for that sort of van. Might take weeks to order some. Maybe months.

If this isn't inciting a riot, I don't know what is.

Lots of farmers out shooting groundhogs this time of year. Sometimes they trip and don’t see where the last shot went...

There are a couple of the kids who have left the family over the years. They live quietly and want nothing to do with their siblings.
