Oh, this is the Westburros. They are weird, not even a recognized flavor of Christian. They have no plan, even an impotent one, to help homosexuals leave the lifestyle, but only to generate great irritation to the average straight American.

I’m amazed a group hasn’t shown up expressly to protect their evil and disruptive protests. I’m thinking beyond the Patriot Riders to a group that uses big sticks for mobility and expression.

I'd hardly call them a church...
More like a traveling freak show.
Preaching Christ Crucified and Risen doesn't seem to be all that big on their preaching agenda.

I suppose they need our prayers - as do any of the mentally ill, or lost (I'm not sure what classification they fall into) - but they can be pretty annoying by their actions.

The proper classification for the Westboro goons is simple: DEMOCRATS.

It irritates me when they are called a "church."

As you say, they hardly qualify.

I gather a lot of Nevadans will show force against these creeps!!! Commentary in Reno paper speaks for itself. Carson City folks won’t put up with it either.

It seems that in some places they have visited, the local gendarmes have made it a point to congregate at some remote donut shop while the locals “raise hell.”

All it will take to stop them is to have some counter protesters with signs saying the people are Democrats.

Fred Phelps is still a PROUD democrat. Not mentioned at all by the MSM. That being said, I’m surprised these people aren’t beaten to a pulp everywhere they show up.

Why don’t they just call themselves “Attention Whore Baptist Church”? It’d be more honest.

Bunch of DemocRat phonies slurring Christians, moralists, and the US military at every turn. Al Gore’s friends doing their damage to the cultural traditions of this nation while profiting from the lawsuits when they provoke their intended outrage.

I'll keep repeating it until it sinks in: these are agent provocateurs of the gay rights movement. They may-or not-be homosexuals themselves, but rip off the thin facade and you will find they are at least homosexualists

If they were really sincere, they’d target funerals done by the pro-gay, and homosexual churches. Heck if they were sincere they’d be ministering to them on the days they had their services.

But they aren’t.

"...but only to generate great irritation to the average straight American."

I imagine a great many average gay Americans find them to be a source of great irritation as well, to say the least. I know I do.

No problem. They have been run out of Nevada before
I am sure many AMERICANS will gladly protect the families from these asshats...... In fact some groups of Americans make it a mission in life to do so..........

If they're "Anti-Gay," why don't they protest funerals of homosexual AIDS patients? Personally, I think that their "Hate-Czar" leader, Phelps, is a closet pole-smoker. Afterall, he ran for public office as a Demo(n)crat.

Not if we have any say in this. We are already talking about finding a couple of people to babysit the munchkins so us mommies can speak FOR those we lost and FOR our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

I can tell you we won’t stand for this. I’ve been tossing around the idea with some fellow stay @ home mommies where we can get a couple moms to watch all the kidlets while the rest of us go to battle for our HEROS and our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

It has puzzled me, why don’t Westburros ever show up to picket at an actual “gay pride” event. If they are so incensed about it. Could Phelps be a poofter?

Probably because their friend Al Gore has advised them to stick to funerals.

I think the reason is the same as why PETA won’t go after bikers and leather guys and why people like Madonna only make fun of Christianity and christians. Cowardice.

we plan on supporting the Guardsmen/women services being held, Sunday at 4pm in Carson City at the National Guard on Fairview. That is what I read from RGJ commentaries.

this was posted in local online papers: "Washington, D.C. – Nevada Senator Harry Reid made the following statement after media reports that the Westboro Baptist Church plans to protest the funerals of Nevada National Guardsmen killed in Carson City on Tuesday: “I am disgusted at reports that these hateful extremists plan to protest the funerals of Nevada National Guardsmen, whose lives were taken by a senseless act of violence on Tuesday. America owes men and women who have served our country the right to a dignified memorial and we all owe their families, who share their sacrifice, the right to mourn in peace. There is no place for hate speech in Carson City or any community in our country.”"

Love Reid or hate him, glad he denounced the group.

I wish I could be there to help support the Guard. Unfortunately, we are going to be out of the area. Best of luck and do us proud.
