    Why are we condemning them this time? What are we condemning them to?

    I'm with OKTexas.

    I like the post on Facebook that said "live your life so that your funeral will be picketed by The Westboro Baptist Church."

    I support freedom of religion...This is most certainly NOT religion.
    These people are a far right wing extremist hate group...
    I despise them.
    They came to protest the funeral of a Marine killed in battle here recently.
    The townspeople were so pissed off, the police did all they could to keep the supporters of the Veteran's family from getting to these creeps.
    Although in a sign of civility, many attendees of the funeral held prayer for the Westboro people.

    Careful – the conservatives will accuse you of ‘condemning free speech.’

    I've seen these people in person, out of curiosity I went when they came near my town. They are the most disgusting people I've ever seen. WORSE than the scum I encountered as a cop, because these people intentionally seek out innocents to offend and then sue them. At least thugs kept their bullshit in their own hoods.

    Westboro is so sick, so disgusting, I dont think it's fair to label them with any political label. Some people and groups are so sick.....they are hated by all, Dems, GOP, independents, straight, gay, whatever.

    I saw them in Charleston, SC, and the counter-protestors had a few Marines in uniform, a bunch of gay kids kissing each other, a bunch of black folks laughing at them, some rednecks with rebel flags mocking them, hippies dancing, and some cops laughing. If all those people are together in a common opposition....that tells you that Westboro is fucking BAD!

    Yeah, pretty much nobody likes them, except thier own family members, which by the way, makes up a majority of the church's membership.

    And they are a scam. To be a member of their church, at age 18 you must go to a law school. Their gig is to provoke people, then sue them and the local city for not protecting them. Its sick.

    Why do you need to condemn them? Are you worried people might judge you based on their actions?
