    Westboro Baptist Church planning to protest Robin Williams' funeral[W:14]

    I saw this headline and just couldn't believe it. But then I read the reason behind why members of the WBC are planning to protest and all I could do was shake my head.

    Members of the controversial Westboro Baptist Church are planning an ill-advised protest at tragic actor Robin Williams' funeral over his portrayal of a gay man in "The Birdcage."

    I don't understand why these sick freaks aren't run up on charges of harrassment, since that is their intent. They wish to hurt people when they are most vulnerable.


    Considering all the crap involving policed recently, I would think this would be the perfect time for them to not show up.

    Whenever those cops you mentioned are KIA, Westboro protests at their funerals also .

    The best way to deal with people like the members of that church is for every decent person to refuse even to talk to them. They are despicable. Even so, I defend their right to demonstrate near these funerals, because as long as they don't come too close to the proceedings--and the Supreme Court has suggested about how close that is--it is speech guaranteed by the First Amendment. The people who want to silence them are even more malignant than they are.

    So, then they're motivated, good. Now, how about a little "social justice".

    I didn't see it coming but it does not surprise me at all.

    For once however these scumbags do not seem so bad. The people protesting and demonstrating ( even peacefully ) in Ferguson are just as disgusting.
