    As much as we hate them, it is their right...

    Every years when I am in NOLA, our paths cross, cannot stand these jackazzes.. but respect their right to say what they want to say... they are so aggravating, nothing like extremists with bullhorns and placards.

    Another burden for the Law Enforcement.. someday there will be a lawsuit, probably by Southern Poverty Law Center or other advocacy group, to sue these guys and cut off their financial sources, just like they did with Richard Butler in Idaho..

    I don't respect their right, where do you draw the line with freedom, do you allow anybody to do anything they want in the name of freedom, that is what will completely destroy this country, the animals will take over.

    Do people allow their children to do anything they want and call it freedom, how far do you go with "freedom" where and when is enough enough?

    The more attention you give these people the more important they feel and the more "bold" they will become.

    I'm 50% there with you.

    Even better would be to get about 1,000 gay people in very skimpy clothes to surround them and make out with each other. Do it in a circle with the WBC's in the middle and not let them out. This way the rest of the public could not even see the WBC.

    Suspend for a moment what you may think of Michael Moore - - he did something close to this in a film once - - it was classic.

    The worst thing you anyone can do to WBC is this.

    I wonder if there is a requirement for how much physical space these psychos are entitled to while "demonstrating." Surrounding them in close quarters shoulder to shoulder with backs turned would be a good isolating strategy.

    actually....if people used their heads and went out there and actually confronted them....they could very well be taken away for inciting a riot.....it would be up to the people to inform the police of the potential violent situation and the police to inform them if they do show up,,,,they would be arrested on that charge. They have every right to back down or go to jail. In this case..the massed would reign...

    Um...no, they can't be taken away for inciting a riot. They have every right to protest and I support their right to protest and so does the Supreme Court.


    Snyder v. Phelps, 562 U.S. ___ (2011), was a United States Supreme Court case in which the Court held that speech on a public sidewalk, about a public issue, cannot be liable for a tort of emotional distress, even if the speech is found to be "outrageous".

    Snyder v. Phelps - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


    Why give them any response whatsoever? Ignore them. Let them realize that no one cares what they have to say. It's obvious they thrive on the conflict, so why bother giving them what they want?

    Extremist Religion, from what I saw this morning they did not make the front page...

    Still think that someone like Southern Poverty can figure out a way to sue them, and take away their coffers.. just like they did with Richard Butler and his neo-nazi's...

    Interesting........my dad once told me....look both way before you cross the street...and no matter what the law states...let that car go because although you might be right...you might just be proving that from a hospital bed...ya know?....As far as giving them a response.....you know the media would create a circus. Short of making it look like Boylston Street currently looks like....you know absolutely no one there completely barren with old newspapers floating in the breeze...it would be ineffective.

    When Bostonians found out that the Westboro Baptist "Church" planned on showing up yesterday in their city to protest they decided to form a giant human wall of thousands to keep them out.

    When the Westboro Baptist "Church" saw how many people had showed up to stop them they couldn't even get out of their van.

    Serious respect for all these brave Bostonians.

    WBC is a money generating scam. Check this out:

    Boston Bombing Funerals Will Be Picketed, Westboro Baptist Church Says - US News and World Report

    "A significant stream of income for the church comes from lawsuits, many arguing that state and local laws – or enforcement of the laws – violate members' First Amendment rights."

    Even more reason to ignore them. Apply the bully rule your mother told you. The rule your dad told you will only send more money to the lazy, non-contributing Phelps family, which is the WBC.

    Are you willing to say that when they harrass the mourners at the Martin Richard, Chrystle Campbell and Sean Collier funerals?

    (They won't go to China for Linzhi Lu's because they wouldn't be allowed off the plane).
