    If you had a fallen relative in the military being buried and they showed up could you really ignore them? Seriously could you?

    Heck! If ya wanna see exactly what their like, just check out their web-site.

    I still fail to understand how anyone can call themself a "Christain" and can believe what these idiots believe...I honestly just don't get it...

    Probably not, but that's not what we're talking about. These were a bunch of complete strangers who showed up to counter their protest in front of Twitter.
    Are you coming to bed?
    I can't. This is important.

    Spot on. I don't get it either, most religion at their cores are supposed to be about loving your neighbor, not judging them, and yet fanatics from all walks pervert it into something horrid and vile.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    Honestly the more I think about it the more I believe these people are honestly just trolling the entire U.S. I mean I just have a hard time believing that people really belief this stuff.

    A good friend of mine lost her son in Iraq in 2006 and this sicko bunch was there - at the visitation.

    The Patriot Guard was there to fend off their asinine protests. They are a DISGUSTING group of sub-humans. In a military town, they were lucky someone didn't take a pot shot at them, let alone just run their asses down with their vehicles since they were precariously perched on the sidewalks and curbs with their signs of hate.

    I don't know, I've met people like that before, I think these are true believers and not necessarily attention seekers.

    The Patriot Guard Riders are true heroes, I firmly believe in their cause, if I had time and a bike I would gladly sign on.

    I love how, if there's one thing that pretty much everybody on the left and right can agree on, its that we all loath the Westboro Baptist Church!

    It warms my heart to see us crossing boundaries and coming together in such a situation. Democrat and Republican, rich and poor, black and white, Christian, muslim, jew, and atheist, everyone together can agree that the Phelps clan are douches of epic magnitude.

    If you set a man on fire, he'll be warm for the rest of his life.
