The Westboro Baptist Church, which has gained infamy for protesting at the funerals of men and women killed in combat, will have a new target on Saturday: the services for two little boys slain by their father.

The church, whose "God hates fags" signs and messages have been seen across the country, intends to be at the funeral of Charlie Powell, 7, and his brother, Braden, 5. Saturday at the Life Center Church in Tacoma.

The boys died Sunday after their father , Josh Powell, blew up their Pierce County home.

“Liberalism really is a mental disorder.”

Yes. This morning, I sent a lib friend, a well-kown musician, an article about traveling with instruments. He always takes at least two guitars. The article informed him that, as long as it would fit in the overhead storage, he could carry it onto the plane. This is the replay that I got;

“What?!?! This is what’s wrong with this country! Obama and his liberal agenda along with the “lame” stream media force this kind of instrument carrying down our throats! What about the rights of the people who are infringed upon that don’t play and instrument? This will create and entitled society with people that play instruments and travel having their hand out waiting for the government to have access to every part of their traveling life. This must be stopped! Rick Santorum and the bible beaters in 2012!”

He’s hopeless! Sadly.

These people are evil enough that I’d not be bothered seeing them buried in sand up to their ugly chins and releasing 10 gallons of army ants next to them.

These sick bastards need a physical reminder that this sort of behaviour is not accepted in civil society. Those boys were innocent and do not deserve to be used as pawns by these jerks.

I agree. What gets me is that the Phelps Freaks voted for democrats in the past and they've been the ones who supported gay marriage, so why not protest them?

I hope you pointed out that Fred has actually run for office as a Democrat?

From wikipedia.com -

Reagan began his political career as a liberal Democrat, admirer of Franklin D. Roosevelt, and an active supporter of New Deal policies.

so why not protest them?

You WON'T protest the WBC because it takes effort and $$$ and you don't have the desire. That's the difference between them and you!

The busiest creatures around must be the demons in hell digging new depths for the future home of the Phelps clan

You don't believe in the Bible, so why talk about hell or demons?

From your FR homepage:

I have a basically agnostic outlook on the subject of religion, not being able to distinguish religion from any other superstition. I respect most faiths but find myself unable to discuss islam with impartiality. Also, I make it a practice to never capitalize islam, allah or the name of that child-raping monster, mohammad. I taught myself Astronomy and have a confident scientific outlook on life. It is clear and beyond doubt to me that Darwin understood a fundamental truth. Those who discount him and evolution simply don't understand that the Bible is not a biology text nor a history text. As an ethical guide it has much to recommend it.

It's a cultural reference universally understood to allow me to express my distain for the westboro perverts.

BTW, Taking every statement literally is the hallmark of the pre-adolescent

I truly believe that one day the Westboro people are going to anger someone who is truly unstable and at least one of them will end up dead. But you know what's really sick? That's exactly what they want! The survivors will then sue every organization within 100 miles, buy the town and make it their super duper headquarters or something.

Nutbags.
