I don’t think the citizens of that grieving town are going to tolerate it very well, at all.

why does no one stop to consider that the Westboro bunch may be funded by the same progressive sugar daddies that fund Daily Kos, Media Matters and HuffPo?

The way Westboro church makes its money is by suing local townships where they protest for not providing adequate protection and denying them their 1st. Amendment rights.

This is a real church?! No church that I know of would think to make those insensitive and incredulous statements! Maybe a little background on the church might shed some light as to their true nature. There are satanic and gay churches too after all.

They won’t actually show up. But they will get barrels of ink donated to them just for threatening to be there.

I've been on forums begging the kind of investigations of Westboro that have been done to Planned Parenthood and SEIU and ACORN.

These Westboros are former Gore supporters, and Democrats.

They have little visible means of support.

They travel extensively, and that is very expensive!

Who pays for their mischief?

Follow the money. I have believed from their beginnings that they are "agents Provocateurs" designed to make Baptists and other traditionalists look bad.

When they come to town, if everyone paid attention to where they stay (what motel, etc) their plane rides, their car rentals...eventually we could expose their supporters. It shouldn't be that hard, but even the liberals never look into who is paying their bills.

They are not a “church”. It’s a group of morons who travel around and try to get assaulted so they can file lawsuits.

Has anyone ever figured out what’s wrong with this little bunch of people, a serious question. Secondly, where do they get the $$ to go all over the country making fools of themselves all the time?

I recently read an interview with someone who said the Westboro Baptist Church is a sham, a tiny group of people that are attempting to incite a violent reaction so they can sue. They make their living off of settlements.

Because that notion is, quite frankly, rather dumb.

These evil people are just evil all on their own, there isn’t an X-Files-ish conspiracy behind it.

Don't do that.

Just go to a sporting goods store and get 55 gals of skunk oil, load up a heavy duty sprayer then with the sprayer in your truck bed drive by them and spray them down real good.

Then they will smell as bad as they are.

Perhaps the only way to stop these low lifes is for the rest of us to picket one of their funerals when one of their members dies.

“They will be arrested...”

That is one of their main goals. They then sue the police and continue on to their next target

Someone who took out every last one of these vermin with a assault weapon — meaning, leaving not one of them alive — after they step off their short bus, would silence the left on the gun control debate, or at least make what they have to say much less palatable and much less credible.

Of course, I mean “leaving not one of them alive” in the nicest possible way.

In addition, the incontrovertible connection between the Democratic Party and Westboro would be un-hideable thereafter.

Let me go on record as disavowing the remarks attributed to me in the paragraphs immediately above.

I detest this so-called “church”. My Bible says “rejoice with those who rejoice and weep with those who weep”. This one group does more harm to the public perception of my faith than all other God-hating Leftists put together. They are either the most misguided church I have ever heard of or they are committed Leftists intent on hurting the church. Does anyone on here happen to know which??

Actually, they are longtime Democratic operatives/fundraisers.

why does not someone shoot these opportunists parasitic pieces of lowlife bacteria that only pop out when there is something tragic that happens! Yeah I know freedom of speech - freedom of speech to shut them up too. Block the pieces of dung heap from even entering Connecticut. Hopefully the dung heap from DC does not show up either.

1.) Find out where they are staying.
2.) Block the drives in the morning, and make it impossible for them to get out!

(Of course, this is the legal way to do it)

They get their money by suing anyone they possibly can. Almost all are trained lawyers. They even won eventually at the SCOTUS and got a judgment against the father of Matthew SNyder who’d originally won a jury verdict.

I Only HOPE and PRAY that LAW ENFORCEMENT WILL BE ABLE TO KEEP THESE WESTBORO...PSYCHOS! AWAY FROM ALL OF THE FAMILIES OF THESE GRIEVING PARENTS, HUSBANDS AND WIVES AND CHILDREN, FAMILY, FRIENDS AND COMMUNITY AT LARGE.

AND YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO LIE, HIDE OR BLAME ANYONE ELSE BUT YOUR WICKED...VERY SATANIC, POSSESSED SELVES!

Yeah. Westboro’s suspicious. Their leaders were pictured with Al Gore when he ran for President. - I suspect they’re being presented as a “far right wing group of Christian extremists” who have to be “controlled” because they’re so extreme. Somebody’s got to be bankrolling them. Odd they’ve been fairly quiet for a while. They’re about as “Christian” as Loody’s goose in my opinion.

I stand amazed that these people still hold law licenses. My understanding is that they try to provoke attacks against themselves, then sue the atackers. Some day they are going to provoke the wrong people.’Nuff said.
