http://youtube.com/watch?v=rAC9t4nNxjU http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Westboro_Baptist_Church I realize that we people living in america have the right to religion, speech, and the right to protest. But these people are lunatics. If you have never heard of the Westboro baptist church, they are

Spoiler: Show
Westboro Baptist Church (WBC) is a controversial U.S. church headed by Fred Phelps and based in Topeka, Kansas. It runs the website GodHatesFags.com,[1] and GodHatesAmerica.com, and other websites expressing condemnation of homosexuals, Roman Catholics, Muslims, Jews, Sweden, Canada, America, and other groups. The organization is monitored by the Anti-Defamation League,[2] and classified as a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center.[3][4] The group has achieved national notoriety in recent years due to its picketing of funeral processions for soldiers killed in combat, which functions as an extension of the Phelps' anti-United States beliefs. While its members identify themselves as Baptists, the church is an independent Baptist church not affiliated with any known Baptist conventions or associations. The church describes itself as following Primitive Baptist and Calvinist principles. The church bases its work around the belief expressed by its best known slogan and the address of its primary website, "God hates fags", and expresses the opinion, based on its Biblical eisegesis, that nearly every tragedy in the world is linked to homosexuality – specifically society's increasing tolerance and acceptance of gay, lesbian, and bisexual people. It maintains that God hates homosexuals above all other kinds of "sinners"[5] and that homosexuality should be a capital crime.[6]

they have attended the funerals of dead the soldiers killed in the was with signs stating "god hates you" "thank god for IED's" and "thank god for 9/11" And now, they plan on attending the funerals for those killed in the Virginia Tech massacre. They feel that they must inflict even more pain upon the families and friends of the victims to spread the word of their god. This cannot happen! I realise that we all have our rights, but these people should not be allowed to keep there little club going.

I would really like to hear what jeff and eddy has to say about this

Actualy, I think that speach should be unlimmited, but it should also be my personal right, to beat all these people within an inch of their life with a big stick for pissing (figuratively) on the graves of dead soldiers.

This isn't about God, this is about them, and I say we outa have a good ole American brawlin.

If there's something more annoying than an attention-whore it's probably a religiously motivated attention-whore.

Free speech is fine, but not if it's used to hurt other people. It's also strange that they call themselves Christians as celebrating the deaths of their fellow Christians isn't exactly what they're supposed to do if they do believe in the stuff Jesus and his fellows preached.

heres a pretty funny letter to them from satan that I found on uncyclopedia:

Letter from Satan Over a prolonged period of time, Satan - The Prince of Darkness, became tired and irate with this so called "Christian Community's" attempts to promote uneccessery hate towards all of mankind. The implication that God had taken over his job prompted him to write the Westboro Baptist Church a letter via their website. "Name: I go by many names Subject: I PLEDGE MY FULL SUPPORT TO YOUR CAUSE GODHATESFAGS.COM is by far my favourite site on the Internet. Just the title alone makes me jump with excitement and anticipation. GOD HATES FAGS. Wow, such hatred.... AND it implies that the statement is coming from the big cheese herself. Since I was cast out of heaven for rebelling against his, all those eons ago, GOD has always preached nothing but love, acceptance and compassion in his countless sermons (the ones those priest guys constantly rant on about). So in his old age he seems to be contradicting hisself.... not that it bothers me. FINALLY he is seeing my way of life. But why stop there? Since the beginning of time, I have made it my sole purpose to induce and support unconditional hatred throughout every demographic that exists. So naturally I am filled with JOY (my own dark kind) when I browse through your site. But honestly, who says that we should discriminate towards just homosexuals.... lets not stop there, GOD. So far you have jumped on board with Gays and Lesbians... but there is so much more work to be done. Let me list for you: Gays and Lesbians (you have my full support GOD) Caucasians, Asians, Europeans, Polynesians, Blacks and Hispanics Cowboys and Rednecks Politicians and Socialites Truckers and Bikies Parents who spend their children's inheritances Parents who dont spend their children's inheritances (I don't like to discriminate) Priests and Holy Men (lets include the Pope in that one too) Holy Women (lets face it - there are some, no use pretending there isn't.) EVERYONE that resides in Hollywood Tabloid newspaper editors and Gossip Columnists Anarchists, Christians, Communists, Communalists, Conservatives, Fascists, Feminists, Greens, Muslims, Liberals, Libertarians, Nationalists, Socialists and anyone else with or without a point of view. AND lets not forget - Fred Waldron Phelps, Sr Lets encourage all of the above to stand up for their own beliefs and work tirelessly until the end of their days promoting that anything and everything is wrong and should be quashed! Free speech and a persons right to choose is NOT their right and the entire worlds population should bow down and worship me in my FIREY HELL for ALL TIME! Or you could shut up and let me do my job. Yours in flames, Lucifer J Satan >:) "

hummm yes I heard of them, They seem NOT to like Canada.

WARNING!!! To God's Elect: Leave Canada NOW!!! "And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, come out of her my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues." Rev. 18:4 Fags have a 3 point agenda: 1) decriminalize sodomy, 2) add fags to the protected classes as victims like blacks, and 3) criminalize Gospel preaching against fags. Canada's doom is now irreversible! On April 28, 2004, Canada hoisted a filthy fag finger in the Face of God by passing a law making any criticism of homosexuals a crime punishable by fines and imprisonment. The churches and preachers of Canada tried massive last-minute lobbying and protests on Parliament Hill to defeat the bill -- too little, too late! For years, WBC has warned that Canada is a homo-fascist state where the filthy fag agenda has become the law of the land. WBC members have been arrested at Ottawa's International Airport upon entering Canada to picket Parliament and burn the Canadian flag. In Albert, WBC members were ordered by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police not to carry "God Hates Fags" signs on pain of arrest and prosecution. When WBC members did in fact actually burn the Canadian flag in religious protest to Canada's approval of same-sex marriage, the so-called Christians of Canada were the loudest in denouncing WBC and "widely reviling" her Gospel message.

There is no hope for Canada. God hates Canada! well God hates WBC as well...

Why can't the say that what's the matter with it? As long as they're not going around and beating up "fags" then what's the big deal. What ever happened to the mentality of "I may not agree with what you say but I defend to the death your right to say it?"

Simple, We do have freedom of speech, but we are not tolerant of Christian fanatics that and they were burning our flag as well. That and they weren't just holding their signs as well; they were preaching hate crimes as well. Put it this way WBC is cult, They take the hole bible bangers to a new level. As for their not going up and beating fags they are. Let me explain Remember Matthew Shepard the poor boy that was killed because he was gay, left to die on a fence because some guys just did it for the hell of it? I'm not saying it was WBC but they were the cause of it, it's called intolerance for though

are differnet they we are. here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sK5eCG6WaTY go here, this the true colors of WBC... all you have to do is watch it. Then if you wish to seem more type in Westboro Baptist chruch in the Serch area of youtube you'll find lots..

MrFancypantsFree speech is fine, but not if it's used to hurt other people.

I agree, freedom of speech shouldn't be some omnipotent value that shadows all other things behind it. I don't think it's okay to let nazis to march & shout in the streets "kill all jews", Bernard Bullshit insult you from rock to bottom not to mention these followers of the Westboro baptist church just because freedom of speech guarantees it: anything without limitations or borders is bad, whether it's patriotism, respect for democracy or freedom of speech or any other affair.

If some minor limitations would be presented, some people would propably argue that "if you give the devil your little finger, it will take the whole hand". This doesn't have to be the case and a clear line can be drawn like in many other issues regarding the people and society. Besides, the society must already be unstable & unsuccesful one if one minor change will suddenly lead to something bigger.

Understand I'm not defending them because though I am a Christian and dissagree with the whole gay rights bit this is not the way they should go about spreading their message. I'm not defending what the said I'm defending their right to say it. I fail to see how an organization like this is not allowed to voice their extreamists opinions but yet the KKK and neo nazi groups can say all they want to and make all the threats they want, so long as they never follow through on them. When I look at a progressive country like Canada, a country that is very tolerent and accepting of many things, and see an instance like this it seems that all the toleration went out the window. By silenceing a group that criticized the government on its over acceptance of gays is a step that is reminicant of totalitarian states of the early 1900's and also various monarchial states from 1350 to the mid 1700's in Europe. If a county such as Canada can be so progressive and accepting why can't it be accepting of even the most nit whitted ultra conservative ideas? Now I'm not critizing Canada or the Canadian government I just simply don't understand. Just because they may be a radicle Christian group doesn't mean you shoudl take their voice away does it?
