Your thoughts

I grew up with Baptists almost as crazy as Phelps. It sucks knowing that there are people so fucked up in the head that there is no way of reaching them with rationality. I know, because it keeps me from talking to about 99% of the people I knew in the first 15 years of my life.

I do hope people like Phelps make people change what they think. It gives me hope.

FANTASTIC! YOU HAVE MADE ME PROUD & I AM WILLING TO STAND UP & BE COUNTED. NO ONE HAS THE RIGHT TO USE RELIGION TO ABUSE OTHERS. IT SEEMS MOST HATRED IN OUR WORLD COMES FROM 'OUTRAGEOUS' RELIGIOUS GROUPS........

GOODNESS & POSITIVITY WILL OVERCOME EVIL THAT IS WESTBRO.

GOD BLESS, BE HAPPY - FROM A GAY MAN WHO SAYS HIS PRAYERS
