It's kinda nice to know that Phred has some friends, comet. Perhaps we should send him Ignoramus' email address?

But yeah, I agree with you.

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!

What, you think only nice people are allowed to object to Phred? Guess what I found:

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.

Hey, don't put us all in the same boat. Not all of us are complete wankers.

The structure and system, OTOH, is up its own ass. There are parts of the CofE that are almost as blind and rigid as WBC.

Do you have any idea what that would do? The conservative wing of the CofE would hold the liberals responsible for dragging their church hellwards while the liberals would accuse the Evo's of the same thing. Meanwhile the Tat queens would argue about what should be worn when processing to The Underworld.

Great idea! Bring it on!

Rumour has it the tossbags from WBC are going to be turning up here for the funerals of the firefighters killed yesterday on the Yarnell Hill Fire. We have a law against political protests at funerals in Arizoa, so I hope the sheriff has the jailhouse cleared out.

Did anybody else see this? The White House has responded to various petitions on their website referencing the Phelps clan. They make the usual anodyne politico-speak about what they can, can't, and won't do. But they also make a really cool map of where Westboro is most hated. Check it out. [Smile]

IMHO, the best chance of the church breaking up (or at least slowing down) will be when Fred dies.

That *could* revitalize the group, of course. But, given that family members keep escaping, maybe the remaining folks will be tired when Fred dies, and take a break.

Maybe, maybe not. But I think there will be no shortage of parties celebrating his demise.
