    Teamsters aim to shield Boston funeral from Westboro picketers

    In addition to the mourners, union members and a local motorcycle club showed up to stop a church group from disrupting the funeral.
    The Westboro Baptist Church, notorious for picketing famous funerals and public events to promote an anti-gay ideology, was there. The Southern Poverty Law Center has designated Westboro Baptist Church as a hate group.

    my point is that there has to be a central Baptist organization, right? i mean, what do these assholes have to do before the Baptists demand that they stop calling their hate group "Baptist?"

    No. You can make this **** up. There are millions of "religion variants" registered as "non-profits".

    I'm not arguing with you. I'm on your side. But that is how it works. "Baptist" is just another word like "Christian".

    I'm very happy to see this. If unions want to improve their image, there are ways. This particular one is a great one. And that they compromised with Hostess is another. Maybe unions are seeing that working with people instead of against them better serves their end game.

    While there are some organized Baptist denominations, any group or church could call itself Baptist, Catholic, Lutheran, or anything else they want to.

    I am certain every Baptist denomination and basically every baptist would decry that group's activity.
