    If they REALLY want to protest a funeral that should show up at the one for Mike Brown. That should solve a number of problems.

    Multiple conservatives have dumped their Ferguson garbage in this thread trying to falsely equate Westboro with Ferguson protectors. I know--it is pretty sick but that's how they roll .

    Another con who can't leave Ferguson out of this thread. I suppose your guru Limbaugh thinks it's okay for Westboro to trash Robin Williams, the thread topic .

    Moderator's Warning:
    Westboro Baptist Church planning to protest Robin Williams' funeral[W:14]This thread is NOT about Ferguson or anything related to Ferguson. Stick to the topic. And Nimby, you have a problem with people posting off topic you report it. You don't go for your own "social justice". This is not Ferguson.

    I hope someone just get a huge projector screen and plays Mrs. Doubtfire next to them.

    I started to make that connection but decided against it. I just thought no way can someone stoop any lower concerning this man's death. Clearly, I was wrong. And of all reasons to protest his funeral, because he played the role of a gay man in a movie once years ago. Really? Kinda makes me wonder will they protest Tom Hanks when he dies, too, for his portrayal of a gay man dying of AIDS in the movie, Philadelphia?

The people who want to silence them are even more malignant than they are.
    They have the right to say anything they want. We all do. I am all in favor of free speech.

    In exercising my right to the same... I find them deplorable. I'm not sure what "Book" they're preachin', but I have a feelin' it ain't the "Good One."

    I feel a lot like I did about the mosque that was to be built near the Twin Towers...

    Of course they have the right to do it...

    But nobody with even a SMIDGEN of decency, respect, and class would choose to do so.

    Would it make a difference if you knew that the point of the comments was with regard to a way to get rid of WBC instead of disparaging Williams?

    One of these days someone around here is going to jump to a conclusion and twist the hell out of an ankle.

    Re: Westboro Baptist Church planning to protest Robin Williams' funeral

    Westboro Church gets to bully decent people all over this country.

    Forget attacking them physically as you will end up in jail. Someone needs to think outside the box. They expect the counterprotesters and they expect the Patriot Guard.
    One needs to think completely outside the box and give them a huge surpize. There are ways to damper their welcome to a city that they would never see coming.
