    I do think this house:



    supposedly painted right across the street from the WBC is a far cry more fun and tasteful.

    I like the tactics of the Rainbow House. They bought a home across the street from the church, painted it in rainbow colors and they have a gay couple living there.

    If mormons can declare dead people to be mormons, why CAN'T they declare dead people lesbians?
    Good point.

    You can't disrespect the beliefs of someone who is dead. Dead people don't believe things.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    Raising the dead?

    I was under the impression that most gay men rituals involved raising the living.

    Yeah...no...

    Someone who punches a child in the face isn't "just as bad" as someone who punches a guy being a total dickhole to a woman at a bar.

    Someone who lies that to his wife about her ass looking fat in a dress isn't "Just as bad" as someone who lies to his wife about cheating on her.

    Someone who stole a candy bar on a dare as a kid isn't "Just as bad" as someone who robbed a store at gun point.

    Is it perhaps immature or disgusting? Sure. But I think it's laughable to suggest that their mocking actions direct towards Westboro is anywhere NEAR on the "just as bad" level as Westboro's actions towards GRIEVING FAMILY of dead soldiers, murdered kids, or disaster victims.

    For ****s Sakes...really? We've reached a point now that even something as disgusting as Westboro, we see "christian" on one side and "satanist" on another and we have to mindlessly say "THEY'RE JUST THE SAME"??!?!?! Forgive me, but the logic of them being "just the same makes zero sense so I can't POSSIBLY find another motivating reason for such asinine statements than standard old religious contentions

    It's not about "Christian" and "satanist." I never claimed they are the same, but when it comes to desecrating gravesides out of a spirit of hate their intent and character is just as bad. WBC protests out of hate, these people protested out of hate. I'll say straight up that the actions of WBC are worse because they impact mourning families during the funeral/burial process, but the intent backed by hatred is "just as bad" where 2 groups purposefully decide to offend others by their own hatred.

    If anything people have reached a point where they see "WBC" on one side and "getting what they deserve" on the other and somehow think the actions of these satanists isn't bad or is somehow justice. It's not, it's an act of hate of similar mind to those in the WBC.

    As I've said several times in this thread, the satanists did not interrupt a funeral. They pulled a dumb stunt without an audience (beyond the camera of course) and the peace was not disturbed. So, no, they aren't the same or even similar.

    Furthermore, they did not desecrate the grave.

    They did it as an act of hatred against WBC. The hatred is like-minded.

    You claimed it was "just as bad". Suggesting that their action was "just as bad" as WBC's action. You didn't claim their INTENT was just as bad (which again, I disagree, as their intent was to enflame and embarass WBC as opposed to grieving family members), you didn't claim their hate was "just as bad"...you just cast out a giant blanket that this singular instance makes them "just as bad", in a blanket sort of way, as WBC. You took a SINGULAR action of a group and used that to compared them as "just the same" as something with years of history of doing vile things that far exceed what that group did.

    Have you ever lied with the intent to decieve Digsbe at any time in your life? If so, clearly you must be "just as bad" as Bernie Maydoff, because your deciet is "like minded"....because scope, context, quantity, and such things apparently don't exist in your world of morality.
