    I keep wondering why the left hasn't lashed out at these freaks. They're extremist Christians that pretty much exemplify everything the left hates about Christianity yet I see nobody here complaining about them.

    I wonder why that is?

    This church is so anti-Gay that they're going around the country protesting the funerals of military men and women killed in Iraq and Afghanistan because of the infamous "Don't Ask Don't Tell" policy. I see nobody saying a thing about them. Could it be that the left sees them as an asset?

    I remember the fight that ensued when Pres. Bill Clinton suggested the policy and now that the left doesn't think it goes far enough and wants to get rid of it perhaps the Westboro Baptist Church is doing their dirty work.

    I believe this is an example of a policy that is middle-of-the-road that nether extreme likes. So the Democrats want to get rid of it but for different reasons then these disgusting nincompoops. They feel it doesn't go far enough. They would rather trash patriots then allow any Gays to exist among their ranks. One would think they would have Saturday afternoon stoning parties just for general purposes. These people are complete morons.

    Ozzy Osborne is really pissed because these idiots are singing a counterfeit version of his song "Crazy Train". Ozzy Osbourne Disgusted by Westboro Baptist Church for Hate Message - Softpedia

    They love singing "You're going straight to hell on a crazy train".

    Kind of reminds me of a bunch of Charles Manson freaks.

    Now from all indications they've won a massive victory because the Supreme Court feels that the slippery-slope argument the plaintiff has against Westboro Baptist Church doesn't override the first amendment.

    Do you feel that freedom of speech overrules everything in this country, peace and common-decency notwithstanding?

    Perhaps the reason the left isn't really going ballistic is because those people aren't the left's problem.

    These religious freaks are, after all, right wing extremists.

    They're the conservative movement's problem.

    Why would the Westboro Church stop anyone from being Christian? I see the Unibomber didn't stop you from being a Lefty.

    So being against gays automatically makes them right wing?

    Maybe they are very liberal in other areas and are actually on the far liberal left. :doubt:

    God hates Phelps and the Westboro Inbred Motherfuckers.

    If I were more religious and decided I needed to pray to God to take Phelps back (kinda like a product recall), would that be morally wrong?

    Is it wrong to pray to God that a fucktarded piece of evil shit like Phelps dies?
