I doubt anyone with a brain blames baptists for their behavior.

Yeah, if you look at their actual beliefs they're barely Christian let alone Baptist.

Although if you ask what it means to be a christian, you will get somewhere around 30,000 different answers.  They can't keep their shit straight.

No, it's Kevin Smith, though they're often mistaken for one another.

Yup, that was the counter protest when Westboro picketed a screening of Red State. Loved hearing the stories about that.

In this case, I hope there aren't a lot of joke signs or anything like that, and I think they should keep Batman imagery out too. Counter protesting a movie or ComiCon, yeah, let those geeky sarcastic signs fly, but at a funeral it's about half as disrespectful as the real protestors.

The "Human Wall" is the way to go for funerals. These folks got it right.

Quote
Aggies came out in force Thursday to build a human wall around a College Station church, hoping to block protestors from Westboro Baptist Church from disrupting a soldier’s funeral.

Lt. Col. Roy Tisdale, 42 and a 1993 A&M grad, died on June 28, when he was shot by another soldier at Fort Bragg during a safety briefing.

“The Westboro Baptist Church, known for protesting soldier’s funerals with anti-gay messages, posted plans to show up at Tisdale’s funeral on their website,” BuzzFeed reported.

Some 650 Aggies formed a “Maroon Wall” around the church.

I normally don't care much for the Aggies, but they got a big "Gig 'Em" from me for that.  It was a very respectful way to prevent the Westborough dochebags from causing further hurt to a grieving family.

I don't get why you don't hear about stories involving Westborough protester beatings or killings.
No one seems to attack those guys. Why?



btw: I'm not endorsing killing, obviously. But I don't have so much faith in my less stable human brethren.

Most of the adults are lawyers, if you attack them you're funding them.

Thats the truth, a lot of people believe that's the entire point of their church, piss people off enough to attack so they can sue.
