Yeh you can be both ill and evil, but as that is the exception than the rule, perhaps it is worth saying so to avoid seeming to collude with negative representations.

I am not too bothered if people accept me as I am, or judge - I am pretty open about the fact I have Bipolar and Schizophrenia a.k.a Schizoaffective disorder. So I have a pretty good handle on being 'out of touch with reality' and this guy isn't ticking the boxes. But if we said he was obsessively paranoid about certain groups of people, I might agree, there has to be a psychological reason for such extreme behaviour and such extreme hate - just not a psychiatric one.

I a very social model myself - I have a psychologist who shares these views. So we have developed a means of recovery that avoids zombifying drugs. I am a bit of a campaigner tbh - I lecture at the local Uni, give presentations for Time to Change and used to have a role at the BBC. So I may appear to be banging my drum a bit!

And for the record, WBC really, really piss me off too!

Crazy Cat Lady,

We don't often give welcomes to people to The Ship on the Hell board (it isn't that kind of board), and there's a Welcome thread on our All Saints board. That's also the place for fellowship and understanding, which are pretty rare in Hell.

ps: please have a look at out 10 Commandments and the guidelines for the boards.

you're in good company, Crazy Cat Lady. there's a number of us on the Ship who have special challenges of various sorts (I'm allergic to the word "disabled" - fuck that, I can do all sorts of nifty shit). At the same time, when it comes to people like Phred, I like to think there's crazy and then there's Crazy. Like, dear Phred is a fucking nutjob. That doesn't mean I'm equating him with the many lovely people I personally know with mental health challenges. He doesn't deserve to polish their shoes.

and further - I wouldn't even call people with mental health problems 'crazy' or a 'nutjob' or (my favorite) 'flamingly batshit'. most of them are lovely people who are just a little quirky when compared to the so-called healthy ones. My neighbor is just that kind of quirky. I adore him; but I know very well his view of the world is very different than mine.

No, I reserve those crazy labels for people like Phred.

and his batshit daughter.

So they said they're going to picket the memorial service for Slayer guitarist Jeff Hanneman.

Link.

Leaving aside the fact that they aren't fit as to such much as kiss his old plectrums, some Slayer fans (and I say this as one and one who knows that there is a great diversity among us as to our relationship with violence) may take great exception to this.

I feel it necessary to ask a somewhat non-Hellish question here - Why? Just why?

It seems to me that Phelps and co. are so addicted to protesting and drawing attention to themselves that it doesn't seem to matter about having a reason to demonstrate anymore.

This PROVES their real litigious motivations. They want someone to lose their shit and violate their rights so they can sue. They think metal-heads have no control. Otherwise, what's the point?

What they fail to understand is that listening to metal eases our rage and gives us more control.

Yes, but what does Phelpsy feel is so wrong with heavy metal (over and against other genres of pop music) that he feels he has to protest? And protest against what exactly? What does he want?

Does he hope to be able to raise some money for his crumbling "church" empire by suing the (leather) pants off some aggressive metalhead?

The guy died young. This is therefore the judgement of God on America. And it can only be because America isn't persecuting the gays enough. Because that's how God judges nations - if they're nice to the queers they're Bad. If they're nasty, they're Good.

One doesn't need to join Hate in order to confront the reality of it.

I don't acquire AIDS by noting the suffering of its victims.

The victims of hate are sincere people caught in errors of judgment.

God is our Judge, but that doesn't mean He's everybody's Judge.

The Satanic ideology and mode is to remove the mistaken from among the "perfected."

Women in the middle ages who had problems supporting themselves without husbands had to confront their Churches' demands that they continue subservient to the Church Patriarchy.

In case you've never experienced this dilemma, it's very painful.

Westboro reflects society's TERROR OF AFFRONTING GOD by our behavior; it's the expectation that "we're going to have to reap what we sow according to the literal Ten Commandments." Never mind, simple Justice.

They take to a level where they are affronting the rest of us by their behavior.

Westboro people embarrass me, vividly. Let's not be afraid of that embarrassment. There are issues around "what is an appropriate society" that are not being handled lately ... by the Church.

Maybe that's their function in God's time: to wake us up to questions that are not being addressed by our vestries.

What do you think about that idea?

In faith, EEWC

In addition (and more seriously) you have the start of a very Purgatorial discussion, there. Could be good. We're in Hell, you're not likely to get the engagement you're hoping for, here. Consider starting a thread in Purgatory; it will be much more satisfying.

So, some happy news!
I belong to a facebook group for bartenders (yes, it exists. And is awesome. We network, people. We're watching you...) and word went around that WBC was planning to picket the funerals of the Moore, OK kids who died in the tornado this week. The bartenders spread the word hard amongst the server world.

The result, according to our little network, is that WBC showed up but can't get a room, a meal, or gas anywhere in the greater OKC area. I'm so proud of my people!

A bunch turned up and bodily blocked the protest, as well.

Word is the doubleyewbeeceers are getting four hots and a cot tonight courtesy of the state. OK requires a permit to stage a protest and they didnt get one. I can hear the lawsuits being filed from here.

And in Seattle for this summer, there's a new musical called "Stu for Silverton" about the time they showed up to picket a small town in Oregon where the locals had elected the transgendered long time resident mayor.

The counter protest was that most of the town people showed up in drag, men, women and children.

It'll be good to see a musical making fun of the Phelps crowd.

Comet--

In one of his stories, Spider Robinson said something to the effect of "never piss off a librarian--they know stuff". Guess that applies to bartenders, too!

BTW, have you read Spider's "Callahan's" books? They take place in a very special bar.

Well, the Westborians saw fit to put up a site against Oklahoma. And a hacktivist put it to good use.

(The site is down, now. The first link is to an article about it. The second is a Google cache of the hacked version. I can't find a cache of theoriginal.)

This from the poster who only a few hours ago was raving about "effemirate (sic) homosexuals", and who started an entire thread bemoaning the removal of references to "God's Holy wrath against sinners"?

Good God, the hypocrisy is staggering. You, Indifferently, are probably closer to the views of the Phelps clan than anyone else currently posting on this site!

Ah, but the Phelps don't worship the 39 Articles, and are thus heretics to be cast into the outer darkness, where there is wailing, gnashing of teeth and effeminate homosexual immigrants worshipping statues of the Blessed Virgin. Like everyone else who isn't Indifferently, I suspect.

What? How are my beliefs remotely similar to theirs? Do they believe in infant baptism? Do they even use a canonically authorized version of the Book of Common Prayer?

How can God hate homosexuals when it is quite clear from the liturgical materials that we say, Almighty and everlasting God, WHO HATEST NOTHING THAT THOU HAST MADE,... does not get any clearer than that.

If God hated any part of his creation he would not have made it. God is incapable of evil. This is very basic Christian theology.

As for you Karl, I do not "worship" the Thirty Nine Articles, I merely subscribe to them.

They are matters of doctrine, hardly of belief.

Well at least Indifferently thinks homosexuals are made. As in born that way? Guess that's something. I can't be arsed entering into the theological debate as to why God would create homosexuals only to then demand celibacy from them, which is where such notions lead. I reject the latter premise of course.

I love that you think that you're completely protected from being at all like the hate-filled Phelps family because you use one of the authorised liturgies of one particular church. That really seems to sum you up, dear.

That was Marv. I'm not often mistaken for him. To help you out in future, I'm the one you'll disagree with on matters both theological and political; Marv you may find some political points of agreement because he's a Tory twit, which is odd, because he shows signs of clarity of thought on matters theological.

Hatred for homosexuality? Check. Stated emphasis on God's wrath? Check. Fundamentalist refusal to countenance any expression of Christianity that doesn't exactly match your own? Check. Giving nothing but disdain, contempt and abuse to said expressions? Check. Being a total donkey felcher who gleefully shits all over everything and everyone else in the world? Check. Being sorely in need of a damn good session with the rusty farm implement? Check.

Seems pretty similar to me.

All faith positions have their challenges. The providence of God is challenged by hunger. The beneficence of God is challenged by oppressive bastards the world over. You've now found yours.

Oh yeah - so it was. I was viewing on a mobile and it must have done one of its random placement of text things.

They believe that They are Right, and this implies that not-They are Wrong.

You seem to follow a similar principle.

Also, they are so far up their own assholes that they can no longer see how ridiculous they are. Something the CofE is trying their hardest to follow.
