    What I'm enjoying is people claiming we're making a big deal about it when I haven't seen that at all.

    Maybe Westboro Baptist will protest at the store?
    Give a man a fish and he can eat for a day. Teach a man to fish and he can sit in a boat, drinking beer all day while you fool around with his Woman.

    well, besides representing an extreme fringe (is there even a 100 people in the entire church), they don't engage in violence.

    I believe it's mostly composed of one man and his extended family.

    A large number of which are apparently lawyers; and have become extremely wealthy suing against those who try to stop them.

    From my perspective: an assault on Christianity, 'shills', propaganda to make us all look bad

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Westboro_Baptist_Church

    "It is headed by Fred Phelps and consists primarily of members of his large family;[5] in 2011, the church stated that it had about 40 members"

    Equivalent to Hitler's propaganda assault against Jews in the 30's (how many TV shows mock Christianity now?)

    This story is the same thing - spun to make it look like "Christians" are "outraged" that the bible is in the fiction section (gasp)

    I've seen several atheists excitedly go in to debate the Phelps on the basis that they were ignorant of the actual content of the bible. They all lost those debates because the Phelps actually knew their bible surprisingly well. Where they (the atheists) keep going wrong is that the Phelps aren't ignorant...they're frigging nuts.

    Oh, and speaking of WBC, they're picketing over Paul Walker's and Nelson Mandela's deaths, but that shouldn't be surprising by now.

    But they are really good at displaying outrage.

    And now when you think of "Christian" you think of a hateful sociopath picketing human tragedy.

    Propaganda is truly a powerful tool.

    People that use the 'media' to develop their framework of truth have always been manipulated.

    Against the black, Jews, Christians, gays, etc.

    baseless conspiracy theories. They seem sincere, they just also know how to protect their interests from when Phelps was heavily involved in civil rights litigation
