    Sometimes I wonder if this is all just a giant gag to them.

    Did Steve Jobs die because of gay people too?

    No, but he was kept alive by buttloads of mid 20s liberals who wanted to be "fashionable" by drastically overpaying for slightly superior merchandise.

    I don't see how the Westboro folks have enough time to attend Tea Party rallys and also protest funerals. Don't any of them have a job?

    I've actually heard its just a fraud. Provoking people to assault them so they can be sued.

    I think it may be their job to arrange to get punched in the face.

    Several of the Westboro members are attorneys. This isn't a gag to them - it is a lucrative livelihood. They make millions suing people over violations of their rights.

    I believe the court with jurisdiction should grant every single family of a deceased soldier who wishes it a restraining order against the members of Westboro Baptist Church so that the police would have a reason to remove them if the group disturbed a funeral. Westboro members would have to find another way to support themselves and the families would be spared having to deal with them. No family - regardless what the deceased has done - should have to bury their loved one amid taunting and protest.
    I don't want to see religious bigotry in any form. It would disturb me if there was wedding between the religious fundamentalists and political right. The hard right has no interest in religion except to manipulate it. ~ Billy Graham in Parade magazine February 1, 1981.

    Perhaps they are taking lessons from the Wall Street protesters...

    Info for those unaware of how the Westboro cult is organized and how it supports itself:
    Westboro Baptist Church | Southern Poverty Law Center

    Another example of your tax dollars at work. We pay the church's lawyers.
