    Love the counter-protest signs. Be honest -- who was there?

    Westboro Baptists are an embarrassment. Disagreeing (or agreeing) with certain things because of religious beliefs is legit, but going out of your way to be a dick just for the attention has nothing to do with God.

    He's never played on either of the teams.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    Wait, hold on here. Didn't jesus go out of his way in the story to be a dick to the romans which was why he was put up on a cross? He could have been a nice guy and just STFU and did what he was told to. His coming back to life was a total attention whore thing to do. though i do not agree with the WBC at all, I do have to say that it is probably not a good idea to dump on their tactics when that is pretty much the tactics of jesus himself.

    Yeah Jesus was such a trouble maker, talking about His Father, hanging out with sinners and feeding and healing people and stuff. You're right, that's exaclty the same as what the Westies are doing. What was I thinking?

    Well, it seemed to tick the people of the time off pretty well. The romans sure seemed to dislike him, the jews wouldn't back him, and even the people would rather set a killer free than him. Not to mention I am pretty sure a charitable hippie like christ who liked feeding the poor, healing people, and caring for minorities would piss the right wing off more than a third Obama presidency. Darn, did I point out the wrong thing?

    To hold up so many signs, the WBC people must have plenty of practice at gripping multiple shafts.
    So follow me into the desert
    As desperate as you are
    Where the moon is glued to a picture of heaven
    And all the little pigs have God

    Your attitude toward Jesus Christ and Christians pretty much copies the WBC attitude towards gays. We Christians recognize that WBC's behavior is despicable and I don't know of one church that endorses what they do. You, however, don't seem at all ashamed of your despicable attitude. I guess the difference is you don't really see yourself as your really are.

    I nominate this for Post of the Day.

    If I weren't so appalled by your invidious comparison, I'd be laughing.

    No, wait--I am laughing despite myself.
