    Westboro Baptist Church Protests Outside Obama Girls' School

    Westboro Baptist Church Protests Outside Obama Girls' School | TPM LiveWire

    Seriously, WTF?

    They believe that the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, as well as the ensuing wars and even the mass shooting last week at Fort Hood, are punishment from God for tolerance of homosexuality. They plan to picket the Fort Hood memorial service this Tuesday.

    The group, which is not affiliated with the Baptist church, protests nearly every day in Washington, D.C., rotating around the city. According to their web site, today they plan to hit a few more local schools and the White House, and will be at the Sidwell Friends Lower School tomorrow afternoon.

    "Quakers?! Are you frigging kidding me? You pretend to be all non-violent, and you allow the most bloody, deceitful, evil, murderous bastard and his shemale sidekick to place their satanic spawn within your four walls?" reads the posting for today's protest at Sidwell Friends, which is a Quaker school.

    The school has not yet responded to a request for comment.

    Randall Terry, the extreme anti-abortion protester, has also arranged demonstrations outside the school.

    Late update: Ellis Turner, the associate head of school at Sidwell Friends, tells TPM the school took no action to remove the protesters, who were across the street.

    "We support the First Amendment here, so there was nothing we wanted to do about it," he said. "There was nothing they did other than offend those who didn't agree with their bigoted viewpoints."

    One of the few groups I've seen able to get legitimate and usually unconditional disdain from most on both sides of the political spectrum. They're nutjobs

    I think it's interesting, though, in light of Apdst's claims about PC.

    I remember them being at the Billy Graham crusade a few years back (Billy and Fred are old acquaintances). They were my inspiration for being an IRL troll.

    At least they haven't decided to protest the funerals of the Fort Hood victims.

    On behalf of legitimate Baptist-dom: we think they're a bunch of nutjob haters, sorely in need of a world-class butt-whuppin'.

    Re: Westboro Baptist Church Protests Outside Obama Girls' School

    Now, now...as you say, definitions of words change, so what gives "legitimate" Baptist-dom the right to a label if the WBC has a sounder theological claim? Has there been any actual dispute of that?
