WBC targets another kind of 'qu-' word

by Jeremy Hooper

We have some good news and some bad news for gays.

The good? Westboro Baptist is about to piss off a much larger community than the gay one, which should both take some of the harassment off of our shoulders as well as raise the world's attention about just how damn nutty this crew of longtime "fag haters" can truly be.

The bad? In doing so, they just might lead us to World War III!

Keep reading for what just might be the Phelps' family's most incendiary press release to date:

Picture 8-89

**UPDATE, 5/20: Oh, now they've gone and made a video.

***NOTE: The above Westboro release can be found on their website. However, a link from us is something these book burners shall never receive.

Funny, you'd think it would be a sin to use the phrase, "pissing on the Lord Jesus Christ". I personally don't relish spending time in Hell with these people as well time spent with them in this hell.

Any bets as to where the next terrorist strike will be? Anyone?

Posted by: Dick Mills | May 19, 2008 8:36:15 PM

I hope for no terrorist strike on anyone (as much as these people may deserve it). Their saving grace (pardon the pun) is that the terrorist would correctly view this group as too stupid to warrant a terrorist strike.

Why would anyone say these things about anyone else?
What they say is beyond the grounds of human decency and should have been stopped by now.
Also I'm guessing this is religious hate speech, do you have laws against that wherever these unfortunate excuse for human life come from?
The "pro-family" people are bad but at least they, in public, treat you as equals, and don't do things that are obviously unacceptable in todays society, I think we should all be glad there is only one WBC.

ps. When I said equals I should have said, human beings.

Posted by: Corvidae | May 20, 2008 3:30:58 AM

honestly....I personally think that these people are "too stupid to survive," but the fact that we could all pay for their willful ignorance kind of freaks me out.

"in public, treat you as equals" - lol ok.

How very, very Christian of WBC to "appease the wrath of God" by inviting the wrath of the muslim world unto the very shores of this country. Thankfully I believe that the vast majority of those in the Muslum world are by far a more forgiving and rational people than the Phelps clan.....However this definately endangers others by virtue of the fact that there are extreemists who will take it as a personal afront. This guy is messing around with the personal safety of others. I have no problem if he and his were the only probable target of retaliation, but that cannot be known. Nor does he take any personal responsibility for the probable reaction he will cause.

I also have no problem with free speech, including acts of free speech. But this is not as simple as that. This man purposly insites folks to rage, and make no mistake, the folks he is about to insite can be very dangerous. Prehaps this is his very own attempt at terrorism on America and Her people. Patriot Act anyone?????

What if a mulsim in the Iraqi embassy who just might have diplomatic immunity decide to shot the whole lot of them. We know how they take their religion, and if they do in fact burn a Qur'an, that is just opening up a butch shit.

However if they do and if we are attack again shortly after it. I can only hope that all americas will go after this family.
