Westboro Baptist Church, Common Decency and 8 Idiots

Share this Shit

Not sure if these are still good, but can’t hurt to give them a try

I can’t believe I’m saying this but I have to agree with Sarah Palin; probably a fluke. She made a statement on March 2nd after the Supreme Court ruled in favor of Rev. Fred Phelps and his church of the insane in their suit with the father of a fallen soldier, saying that the Courts rules illustrated the lack of Common Sense and Decency in this country. She tweeted yesterday,  “Common sense & decency absent as wacko “church” allowed hate msgs spewed@ soldiers’ funerals but we can’t invoke God’s name in public square.”

Now, you know I’m not much of a God invoker, but I have to agree that there is some real, almost tangible hypocrisy here.

Albert Synder was burying his son Matthew a soldier that was killed in combat in the Iraq in 2006. Phelps’ gang of sociopaths gather outside the 1000 foot parameter that the police required holding up their signs with slurs like “Thank God for dead soldiers”, and “God Hates the USA / Thank God for 9/11”.

Real bunch of sweet hearts.

Matthew’s family sued Westboro for mental anguish. They won their suit in a lower court, being awarded $5 million. However with the Supreme Court overturning that ruling, the Snyders may have to pay the fucking creepy Phelps $100,000 to cover their legal fees.

Their lawyer by the way is Fred’s own spawn, Maggie Phelps.

To pour piss on a wound, the money will more than likely go to fund more villainous protests like those that disgraced his son’s funeral.

Justice Roberts in epic cold-blooded Supreme Court style  described the court’s holding as “narrow”, whatever the fuck that means.

In a separate statement Justice Stephen Breyer said that in other circumstances governments would not be “powerless to provide private individuals with necessary protection.” But in this particular case, Breyer said, it would be wrong to “punish Westboro for seeking to communicate its views on matters of public concern.”

I call bullshit on Breyer, Roberts and the other 6 that found for Westboro. 

Complete Bullshit.

What exactly is public about God Hates Fags? This isn’t a public concern, its a lunatic fringe church’s sociopathic leader’s hate-mongering. It’s hard to imagine any rational person seeing what Westboro is doing as simple public protest. 

Remember the Justices were lawyers.

Justice Samuel Alito and I however are in complete agreement, and I would have to guess he’d call bullshit on the others as well. Alito stated, the protesters “brutally attacked” Matthew Snyder to attract public attention. “Our profound national commitment to free and open debate is not a license for the vicious verbal assault that occurred in this case,” he said.

Exactly, and that’s why I have to agree with Sarah “pitbull in lipstick” Palin. As much of a nut job as she seems, or is, she’s dead on here. 

I guess sometimes even the crazies think people are crazy.

With all due respect,
The Chief

    I'm torn here and it has nothing to do with God or my Christianity. This guy & his followers are idiots & they don't know anything about the Christ they claim to speak for and clearly are delusional. They're worse than a person that mocks the Lord. However, free speech cannot be based on how people are or are not offended by it. This is the worst kind of free speech there is but we can't start regulating it at all or it will slowly start to be regulated little by little. We should be able to speak there minds about whatever they want. I think gay marriage is wrong, but people should be able to fight for it if they choose. I don't believe in mocking or cursing the Lord, but people should be able to do it if they choose. I believe kids should be able to pray, wear sexual preference bracelets, and I love Jesus shirts to school. People should be able to post billboards for & against God. In closing, Phelps & his followers are deplorable, rude, show no respect to some of the bravest people in the world who have fought & died for the very right of free speech we all enjoy…their idiots. However, if Bill Maher can call George Bush a murderer, if Mike Huckabee can accuse Obama of growing up in Kenya, if gossip magazines can make up lies about people, then these jackasses can do what they do no matter how much we disagree with how they choose to do it. God hates no one & most people know that whether they are believers or not. He hates sin. All of it. From cursing to murder to being gay. He also forgives it all. Phelps doesn't speak for God, nobody does unless they are speaking of the word He has given us. Some don't believe that and that's fine, it's your right, just as it's right to distort it. This is my opinion & some may agree & some may disagree. Either way, it's your right.

    The Rev
