    Echo that.

    Westboro Baptist is nearly universally despised for it's tactics. Using those same tactics kind of makes these idiots one and the same..

    So let me get this straight, they made up a ritual, had a wedding near the dead person's grave, then named the lady a lesbian? And this supposedly makes them as bad as the WBC? The same WBC who base their actions on scriptures read at churches across the US on Sundays? The WBC who's message is not unlike that of Jerry Falwell, Pat Robertson, D. Moore & Jack & Billy Graham? Lol. Yeah, I'll take a few trolling satanists over the WBC's Christian Fundamentalist message any day.

    Satanism is the dumbest philosophy I've heard, it's essencially just basic straight up everyday common sense atheism wrapped up in imagery so as to pretend to seam dark or whatever.

    They claim to be moral nihilists and they claim to be all about slefishness and so on, but then they champion common sense liberal causes and so on, they claim to be hedonists but really just live like your average person.

    They go on about "who's to day what's right and what's wrong, it's all relative," then go on to critique religion morally, and pretend that what they say is shocking ....

    There is nothing more pathetic than someone pretending to be shocking doing something that's mediocure at best.

    I enjoyed the excellent example you provided of what you were preaching about.

    Just as valid and just as ludicrus as Westboro's position on homosexuality. I hope they follow up by showing up to Westboro protests to remind them that their matriarch is gay.

    While I do object to desecrating graves or disturbing bodies for the hell of it, it doesn't look to me like either took place here.

    One thing, though: Are we sure these guys are Satanists? They strike me as Discordians flying someone else's flag for the lulz.
    I guess they gave it the old college try, but it doesn't look like it had much of the intended effect other than to give WBC more publicity. The WBC spokesman pretty much used it to preach some more anti-gay rhetoric. Besides, no one at WBC even knew the poor woman. She died very young when Fred Phelps was about 5 years old. He was raised by some other woman when his father remarried. Her grave is miles away in Mississipi.

    Also, I'm not sure because I'm not a Satanist, but according to these guys' own website it looks like they might be violating one of their own Tenets, namely number 8:

    These are their websites:

    http://www.westboro-baptist.com/


    which I found by following links in this article:

    Some of you are crazy. There is NO WAY these "satanists" are even close to being "equally as distasteful" or "equally disgusting" as the WBC.

    Where do you even get that from?


    Was this "gay ritual" carried out during the actual funeral for the lady?
    Or was it done years/decades after her death?

    Was it publicly announced weeks before it happened that this "ritual" was going to take place?

    Was the grandmother a fallen veteran that was killed while on duty serving her country?
    Or was she a hate filled, bigoted, ignorant, nincompoop that filled her families heads with stupidity?

    I'm not saying the satanists acted with class and honor, but come on people, they're no where near the caliber of trash the WBC people are.

    ...and it is disrespectful. If you claim someone is disrespecting your beliefs, you do not repay it with disrespect of someone who cannot object. It's cowardly.
    The morality of abortion is not a religious belief, any more than the morality of slavery, apartheid, rape, larceny, murder or arson is a religious belief. These are norms of the natural law of mankind and can be legislated even in a completely religionless society.

    Re: Satanists Perform ‘Gay Ritual’ at Westboro Gravesite

    ...This is just hilarious. After all the WBC's protesting and emotional desecration of military funerals, they're getting it right back at them.

    Oh, and most of these "satanists" are probably just ****ing around and the whole thing is most likely a parody of epic proportions and, of course, trolling. Anyway, the WBC is getting what it's been giving in a far more amusing manner.
