    Actually, the only "gay funeral" I am aware of that he protested was that of Matthew Sheppard.

    He would protest anywhere he thought he could get attention. And he would celebrate each death, claiming it was proof of God's hatred of gays.

    No matter who's funeral it was.

    This guy and his followers are legitimately looney-tunes bat-**** crazy.

    Is this the guy who said all gays should be rounded up and put in one place so they could not reproduce and thus die out?

    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Yeah, I'm sure you have a better grasp on what was possible at the time than the team of Seals who rehearsed the raid countless times and were aware of the time and logistical restraints.


    But instead we engaged in our ape half and killed. Kill kill kill, destroy destroy destroy. Seems to be all we're capable of these days.
    What a truly delicate and special snowflake. Maybe the Military should mandate some anime time to tame that oh-so inhumane tendency of soldiers to shoot things.

    He didn't use the word "equal" in his post.

    With your over the top hatred of gays you actually did more for the movement than most of its proponents.

    I will not come down to your level and be jeer at your passing.
