    Im not talking about what some guy named Jesus taught, im talking about those that call themselves "christians" and dont act like christian.

    Just look at some of the topics on homosexuals here at DP. You'll see hate and ignorance. Pfffttt!! they have the nerve to call themselves christians, but you know, i cant really fault that because THEIR religion tells them this. It all goes back to "pick and choose" what you want to hate.

    Again you are painting them ALL with a broad brush, which makes you no different than the haters who paint Islam with the same kind of brush.

    Good idea. I'm gonna register the Islam name, and open up a pulled pork restaurant. My motto? Take it from Allah, this is heavenly.

    In order to sue someone for calling themselves "Baptist", you have to prove that you own the concept of being a Baptist. There's no one Baptist organization that has the legal authority to make that claim, so anyone can claim to be Baptist and there's really nothing anyone else can do about it. On the other hand, Mormons and Scientologists absolutely could sue someone for representing themselves as being Mormon or Scientologist without belonging to their specific organization.

    Not for you to judge.

    Once more, the unions protect the good and decent folk from the conservatives...





    No no, put down the torches and pitchforks, it was just a joke. I find the Westboro Baptist Church to be some of the most despicable people in this country. Why can't one of these crazy mass shooters show up where they are? It might be the only time I'd ever be a supporter of violence.

    Sure, you have that right. And people have the right to consider you an A******.

    Go get 'em, Teamsters and bikers. Rock their friggen' world.

    Article is here.
    If I'm not mistaken, Westboro had it's right to conduct such protests upheld by the Supreme Court under the 1st amendment and the ruling wasn't close.

    If you believe in the constitution, you can't just believe in it when it suits your purpose or when you agree with the way someone is exercising their rights under the constitution.

    If the Teamsters and others wish to counter protest, more power to them - attacking them as they protest, not so much.

    I understand the church decided not to protest so problem solved and please don't misinterpret my comments as agreement with what the church does, I just support their rights to do so.
