I ventured idly into their official website and looked at their picketing schedule. It appears that the millions they stand to lose due to the lawsuit does not hinder them from staging a picket at Helsinki for the Jokela massacre.

Silly people! Me-doubts that they'll even get visas to visit Finland.

Lord help me if they decide to picket the nearest Finnish consulate in the region.

With recent news of a bombing at the Philippine House of Representatives' compound, resulting in the death of a Muslim congressman (Rep. Wahab Akbar of Basilan), I won't be surprised if Phred Felps and his little horde will want to picket the Batasan ("Legislature") complex.

what's worse is that a lot of people enjoy 3 weeks' worth of visa-free stay in this country. [Disappointed] Then again, the millions they have to pay the Snyders might delay that jaut a bit, and by then, that part of Batasan will have been cleared of rubble and restored to its regular use, although the business of legislation will be conducted with some mourning over the loss of one of their own.

I pray God that should any member of the Fleps family set foot on these Islands, let them be detained and deported as personae non gratae, or be welcomed by the local Hare Krishna in full force... Or the Catholic Bishops with the ghost of Cardinal Sin hovering overhead.

The most interesting element of the Phelps' warped theology is the concept of the "fag enabler". This is a person who, although not personally homosexual, is nevertheless deserving of condemnation for not opposing homosexuality. This guilt is corporate - entire nations are to blame especially the [Devil] EVIL COUNTRY OF SWEDEN [Devil] . Even if you are personally opposed to homosexuality, by the very fact of living in a country where homosexuality is tolerated you become a fag enabler, and thus a fair target for picketting. It was by this curious logic that the Phelps ended up picking a shop in the US which sold Swedish domestic appliances - complete with "Fag Nation" signs in abundance. Incidentally, the King of Sweden is suing for defamation.

So, if the US decided to pass a federal law protecting the civil rights of GLBT people, Phelps and his minions would be forced to move somewhere more conservative like, say, Afghanistan?

Sounds like everybody comes out a winner in that deal.

If the US Constitution guarantees the right of the Phelps clan to go about their strange business more-or-less without restraint or molestation, does this mean that the United States is a nation of Phelphs-enablers?

It's that whole "market place of ideas" thing. By allowing them to expose their ideas in public, they expose themselves to the ridicule and comtempt of all right thinking people, which would be pretty much the rest of the entire human race.

In other words, they protest; everyone else points and laughs.

Seriously though - have the Phelpses bought up every domain name starting with "godhates" and then the name of a geographical area? (Thinks a bit then goes on to the electric internet...)

You see, Farmer, I think your parish has some great opportunity here. I'm not sure what, exactly. kill them with kindness?

calling in 5,000 hare krishnas to tambourine them to death? there has just got to be something basically harmless but really devious and funny, too.

something worth videotaping.

Eh, I think by ridiculing them, we're still giving them attention, which is what they seem to get off on. They're like badly behaved children who will do anything to get people to look at them, always looking for the next most absurd stunt they could pull. If it were possible for us all to collectively ignore them when they act up, I bet they would find some other way to deal with their issues. (But they make it hard by being so shockingly offensive.)

Freaking.

I think the Phelps clan is a classic case of a cult in the United States. The fact is, the Phelps family are pretty much isolated from everyone.

They really don't understand anything of the Gospel message. They are following after something, but it isn't Jesus.

I thought I wouldn't be surprised any more by the things they get up to - clearly I was wrong.

Where did I read something along the lines of;

A further thought:

Yes, these people are appalling and their views are appalling but then I have been faced with homophobia on a pretty much daily basis since before I was even sexually aware so it isn't really news to me - indeed similar views, although generally not couched in such extreme language, are quite a regular occurrence here on the Ship of Fools. In a sense give me the open homophobes any day rather than those that attempt to hide their venom behind sweet words - an honest enemy in front of me is preferable to the honey-tongued back-stabbing bastard behind me!

And because it now involves folks other than fags, indeed the whole world, am I suddenly supposed to take it more seriously?

Well, I'm not sure I can to do that - I'll continue to pray for them and those anti-human rights advocates here on the Ship. I'll even continue to love them all and seek that of God in them all - and I shall thank God that I am not commanded to like them all!

I cannot say how many members they have in their church, other than family members, but I do not think that there are many. When anyone from the church is quoted, it is one of the children.

After a 9 inch snow storm yesterday, I do not know if they made their usual Sunday schedule of picketing. [Confused]

I also read that most of the WBC's members are related to dear Pastor Fred. As the host of that video site remarked, they do look related to one another. Perhaps inbreeding has caused some mental deficiency.

That's very scriptural, WW - "faithful are the wounds of a friend" -- (actually Prov. 27:4-6 is all pretty relevant: Wrath is fierce and anger is a flood, but who can stand before jealousy? (5) Better is open rebuke than love that is concealed. (6) Faithful are the wounds of a friend, but deceitful are the kisses of an enemy.) and Psalm 55:12-14 is profound: For it is not an enemy who reproaches me, then I could bear it; nor is it one who hates me who has exalted himself against me, then I could hide myself from him. But it is you, a man my equal, my companion and my familiar friend; we who had sweet fellowship together walked in the house of God in the throng. Both God and man know a thing or two about betrayal.

A really scary thought is that these people might be Christians in some way yet they actively refute so much of what Jesus explicitly said... talk about grieving God... [Frown]

I also read that a lot of them are lawyers. Goes to show it doesn't take too much smarts to get through law school nowadays.

Yep, the song parody was horrid, and I found myself hoping for a knock-down, drag-out, copyright violation lawsuit... until I saw the last 20 seconds - for the love of the sweet baby Jesus, that's CHILD ABUSE. [Projectile] [Mad] [Waterworks] Now I'm hoping the child protection authorities in Kansas see that video and do something about these Phucking Phelpses before there's another Waco or People's Temple.

May God bless that child, and set her free from the evil that has been done to her. [Votive]

And the rest of her family as well.

I saw the parody video, and to me it seems more like an instruction of how NOT to be Christ-like than anything else. What really makes me sick is that there are people who actually believe this crap, and that there are people who think this represents all of us Christians.

If I had to change the label I used for my faith to disassociate from these people, I would. Hopefully I won't have to, because these people will be seen for the hateful bigots they are.

And yes, I agree that teaching that to the child is a form of abuse. We can only pray that she comes to see the real Jesus and rejects what she has been taught in terms of this evil.

Here is the latest.

Apparently anyone having anything to do at all with Brokeback Mountain is a fag enabler.

I wonder how WBC found out about Brokeback Mountain? Wouldn't reading about it/reading plot lines equate to reading gay propaganda? What about hearing about it? Isn't that the same as listening to gay propaganda?

the best part about these morons is that nobody took them seriously before, and now they have proven themselves just a punch-line to a joke.

who honestly forms an opinion of someone based on a character they portrayed as a critically acclaimed professional actor?

Even the regular lunacy of Phred and Klan has been surpassed by this!!

Maybe that is Phred's problem too?
