    The article states that the city decided it was a church, but didn't state how they reached that conclusion. That's my only problem with it.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    This place is predominantly Mexican. If anything is getting stabbed, it's people.

    That is a bit disconcerting. If they merely said "It's a church!" there is a big problem with the law. And these people shouldn't be waiting till they get thrown in jail to make a stink about it. It's their duty and responsibility to control their government.

    67, count 'em, 67 violations. Really?!?!?
    If, "the law", trumps our constitutional rights, then tyranny is taking hold. I recollect, the whole reason for The Declaration of Independence was cause, "the law", was trampling our God given rights.

    I wanna know who decided Westboro Baptist was a church? I hope those idiots are at the end of a very long dirt road out in the sticks somewhere.

    Hey, everyone here can pick and choose what side they are on relating to this topic. But if this guy was YOUR next door neighbor, you'd be raising hell too.
