... unless it gets results!
I wish I could be there. This is one event I would gladly disarm for, as it would prevent me from shooting some sorry fool that really needs it. I would willingly submit to a beating just to get a good poke at one of those 'baptists.'
Haha, they'll be like 3 of them if their past "protests" are any indication. They make this huge deal of it, then send a couple of people. It's the rare exception when most of the family shows up. Rumor has it the Hell's Angels might stop by.
13 For such people are false apostles, deceitful workers, masquerading as apostles of Christ. 14 And no wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light. 15 It is not surprising, then, if his servants also masquerade as servants of righteousness. Their end will be what their actions deserve.
It pains me greatly to share the name of my faith with the likes of them, knowing that their being led to tear it down.
What I notice most: they don't picket the jail where the killer is. They picket the victims. And THAT shows the world where THEY'RE at.
The very worst thing you could do to these people is completely ignore them. Or some could maybe. The instant I saw their signs I would lose it.
I wonder how the Phelps clan plans on not getting their tires slashed this time. :boese51:
This time, they have really gone way, way too far.
The most amazing thing is that they say that God is on their side, and is protecting them. Representative Giffords was one of the people in Congress who led attempts to pass legislation making the WBC protests illegal. The church is actually saying that God himself sent the shooter to kill Giffords, in order to punish her for opposing them.
That is why they are so very interested in this tragedy. They actually believe that it was an act of God, all done for their own benefit.
I just don't understand how people can become so totally crazy as these folks are.
Here is part of the public statement that they posted on their website:
"That child was not innocent. This is a nation of depraved perverts who pass their children through the fire of their rage against God & all-consuming lust. From the womb, she was taught to hate God & mock His servants. That child is better off dead, so the cup of her iniquity will not overflow!
Rep. Giffords passed laws trying to keep WBC watchers off the street corners. In repayment, God sent the shooter when she took to a street corner! The blood of the 9-year-old is on Rep. Giffords’ hands! "
I could call these people some vile names, advocate violence upon them for their hideous acts, but...
I would be doing exactly what they do in the name of God. Why would I want that? Being a Christian, that is not the way to treat our fellow man.
However, if 10,000 peaceful Christians lined the streets in a peaceful counter protest, that is our right to do so contained in the Bill of Rights. There is power in numbers and the more numbers against this group, the sooner they will fade into history.
I think that this is something that will outrage all Arizonans, no matter what.
I personally would not be surprised if there indeed is violence this time. Those signs those idiots carry are so outrageously full of hate, that it is an absolute miracle that no one has attacked them in the past.
I'm all for religious freedom, but this is emotional terrorism. Have we turned into a nation of spineless dummies to let this kind of action proceed?
So let's get this straight, you can't sunbathe nude in public but you can display this kind of %$#@? It boggles the mind.
What about the kids who get expelled for wearing a gun on a t-shirt to school, or the girl kicked off a plane for showing too much skin. But this is ok?
I'd rather hear Katie Couric use the F word on network news than see these "protests".
Ok I'll stop now.
"Phelps-Roper said...." In the immortal words of Monty Python "You're a loony". They really believe that spewing this hate filled vomit will server as a good example and bring someone to believe in the Prince of Peace?
The problem with America these days is that WE THE PEOPLE have forgotten how to govern ourselves. This protest would not have taken place 50 years ago. Butts would have been kicked!
