    yes, it is like protesting during church. it would be like if anti-war protestors had showed up to disrupt and yell at bush during medal-pinning ceremonies. it's taking something that's not about you or what you are yelling about and insisting that it become about you. It spits in the face of the competitors because it tells them that their achievements and struggles aren't worth even having a single day in the sun, the union protestors must have everything.
    It would be like angry protesters pushing their way onto a private owned ship and tossing freshly shipped goods into the Boston harbor...

    You're only damning the means of their protest, because you don't like their message.

    that is not all there is too it.


    I'll admit, I don't really know how to respond to the reaction here. It's like I posted Nancy Pelosi beating a three year old and the response was the three year old shouldn't have gotten in her way.
    I might not approve of the message of their protest, but I won't disapprove of their freedom of speech...

    The Westboro Church offends the hell out of people... instead of complaining about it, we counter protest and block the Westboro people from view. If enough people were offended by this protest, they should have gotten their asses out there to counter protest.

    What damage to anybody, personally, did this protest cause?

    not at all. soldiers funerals are perfect podiums for anti-homosexual screetching. because nothing is outside of our need to vent political anger, right?

    generally we can know when the Westboro folks are coming. I would hope that if folks had known that union protestors were about to crash the special olympics they would have done something similar.

    Mr. Madison, what you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.

    Sure, but it's pretty distasteful and sort of defeats the entire purpose of the protest.

    If I had a friend that died as a soldier you bet I'd go up and speak about the reasons that he died, politics included.

    So you are cool with Westboro Baptist Church protesting at the funerals of US soldiers?
    A little late to the party? Anyways, I have no problem with these people being killed so of course I'm not going to support their right to free speech.

    You talk about Walker when these asses show they have no respect for the handicapped?

    So you condone disrespecting Special Olympics? That makes you as disgusting as these Union Idiots
