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.
    Of course I've lied with the intent to harm others in order that I may gain. To the same scale or even being illegal like Bernie? No, but my intent was selfish just as his was.

    They are a group of hate filled satanists wanting to piss off WBC by doing homosexual rituals on a grave and declaring the deceased a lesbian. They hate WBC, it may not be as severely of an offensive act like protesting a funeral, but it's still hate. Their intent was to offend and piss off WBC just as the intent of WBC is to offend and piss off others. The actions weren't as severe, but the hatred behind it most likely just as bad. They are both wrong and both have their actions stemming from a hatred of another group. Neither is justified.

    Review my original post. I said their behavior was immature and disgusting. Never did I say that they were the same, never did I say that when it comes to their actions that the satanists have done stuff to the same level as WBC. I posed the question that this behavior may make them "just as bad" by further clarifying that "just as bad" largely has to do with the hateful intent behind the actions. As it appears these people did what they did out of hate just as WBC does.

    I think they're equally dumb. And sad.

    What makes them "hate filled", and how can you tell?

    You sure it's not just a humorous prank to make a point?

    So since you're now using the Glenn Beck excuse of just "asking questions, perhaps you'd find it more agreeable if I "asked" then that "Doesn't this make you just as bad as Bernie Maddoff? It's deceitful and selfish."

    I did "review your original post". What I just posited to you here is pretty much a recreation of it simply swapping out WBC/Satanists for Maddoff/yourself and the "immature" actions for deceitful ones.

    Is it any less fair to suggest you're "just as bad" as Bernie Maddoff as it is to suggest this group is "just as bad" as WBC?

    I find this hilarious. I also find the people trying to draw false equivalency equally hilarious. The whole thing was an excellent bit of satire.

    Psssst: Paul was paraphrasing Jesus, as he often does. Reaping and sowing metaphors occur throughout the bible. Jesus was probably referring to Job 4:8 or Hosea 10:12. You just get an NIV bible.

    I love explaining the bible to fundies!

    I don't really like the idea of intentionally drawing attention to the WBC which in my opinion is all they really want anyway. But it was kind of funny, and it sounds like they didn't actually desecrate the grave or anything so I'm cool with it.
