    Westboro Baptist Church plans to picket Connecticut victims' funerals

    Connecticut school shooting: Westboro Baptist Church planning to picket - Oklahoma City Top News | Examiner.com

    What do they gain from this kind of behavior? They've been doing it for years, and I can't find the gain -- unless it's to piss off people enough to get them to take a swing at them, and then they sue the person who hit them.

    You don't have to be poor and/or uneducated to be insane. They are a clan of mentally deranged lawyers. They do this because they see this as the right thing to do - incomprehensible to most of us.

    These nutjobs need to be tear-gassed next time they protest at a god damn funeral. Seriously.

    As I understand it, money. Fraudulent lawsuit money.

    I don't think I've ever wanted to hurt someone as much as I do Fred Philips right now....

    As best as I can tell following the article back to the twitter account is that they are of the opinion that God is punishing Connecticut for supporting gay marriage, not anything particular to the children per se, though I cleaned up their language in translation.

    How would that be possible?

    There's no law against being an asshole. Too bad, I would be making citizen arrests all day long but really, society is helpless against certain behaviors.
