    Or find where they're staying and park their cars in like that biker club did.

    In the 11 posts leading up to this one, it was mentioned once. And then in a manner to suggest it would put an end to Westboro.

    So, it seems to me it's you "dumping their garbage", no-one else.

    They're a cult that uses these tactics to increase their public profile; they make their money off of the lawsuits they file against people who interfere with them, and the hatred helps maintain their grip over the dupes that follow them.

    That's a whole lot of cravin'! Is it like...pregnant woman 2:30am craving or like a fat woman loves cake craving? (j/k)

    Either way, this group has to be desperate for attention. They're jumping through some series hoops to get recognized. In any case, I think they missed their opportunity. It went up in the wind.

    Same thing with outlining a certain distance funeral. In the past, they stood close enough that the mourners could hear the despicable slandering of the deceased. Is that free speech? Supreme Court (government) said no, they have to stand farther away.

    I'm rather amazed they haven't incited a riot. This is as low as anyone could stoop. People here saying they're smart, they sue those who get in their way, no, they are damn lucky to not have been done in. I remember hearing of a group of vets who were caught at the last minute with automatic weapons.
