I wonder what the WBC members must be smoking that makes them really believe what they're saying. Maybe it's cocaine...or bath salts...

Westboro is NOT a religion it is a bunch of mentally ill persons that need infamy to satisfy their desire to feel powerful.

I'm afraid they have what they want; their name in the news. The police would be forced to protect them if they show up making yet more news for them.

Take their Tax Exemption away. Think again if you think you are Christian, the bible is not a tool for hate.

Media outlets, stop covering them. Stop giving them any publicity whatsoever. They are nothing more than attention-seeking terrorists who wish to hijack the spotlight whenever Americans have something to mourn.

They're not worth the ink or sound bytes..

God have mercy on the members of Westboro Baptist church. I know that God Loves all his children. Your 1st amendment rights stop when they violate the rights of others. How dare you impose your views at a time of sorrow for others. I thought God was supposed to be the judge not some so called "mainstream religion". I hate that someone like these people are even considered to be Christian.

Sadly, their protests aren't infringing on anyone else's rights. They would be if they were blocking the people from getting into the funeral, but not by just standing outside of it. No, I don't agree with what they are doing and what they are saying, but the same law that protects the people counter protesting is what protects the people protesting. There are at least two sides to every view, and unfortunately to be just, the law has to protect everyone, not just the ones that you feel are "right".

I have a right to not be harassed or assaulted in this country. Regardless of the method used, IT IS THE INTENT BEHIND THE ACTION that determines whether or not an act is criminal. And intent is determined through the eyes of any "reasonable and prudent person." Their behavior is not reasonable and FAR from prudent.

Prudent:
"Acting with or showing care and thought for the future."

Read up on assault laws in various states. What these people are doing is "with intent to alarm, annoy, harm or threaten any person." That is ASSAULT at best.

Once you've violated a law, you no longer retain all the rights of a law abiding citizen. You've just become a criminal.

Is there not one person with sense in this entire congregation? Why are they picketing this prayer vigil? What are they protesting? Haven't the families of the victims suffered enough?

This is nothing but a publicity stunt, designed to get attention. In children we call this negative attention. That's what it is. Grow up.

They are a congregation of either mentally unbalanced people or evil people. If any of them had any sense, they would not belong to that congregation. Anyone who joins this "church" is already unstable.

I think there are about 30 people in this church, and 25 of them are in the one family. All complete fruitcakes, or intimidated children.

That explains why not even one person objected to this bizarre behavior.

Can we please let James out just for this one day so he can attend the Westboro event?

WBC is a family of lawyers that make their money with lawsuits. Their strategy is to be as obnoxious as possible and hope someone "infringes on their liberty" so they can sue them. They are hard to ignore but that is the surest way to make them go away.

These people ARE NOT CHRISTIANS. They are disciples of Satan. Something truly needs to be done to these terrorists - and terrorists are what they are. I don't know what bible they are reading, but it is NOT the Word of God.
07:14 PM on 07/24/2012
They're reading the same Bible you and and I are, just interpreting it to the extreme side. I don't think that the Bible needs to be taken literally, or else we'd still be living in harems and having slaves. However, this extremist view is not right, either.

It is truly difficult to try and get your mind around this kind of hatred. I believe that God has disowned this so-called Christian group. No one should be subjected to this form of hatred. Judgement will fall upon these people.

What in the heII constitutes a "super picket"? Are they going to ride upon each others shoulders so everyone can see them? Or at least the top half. These folks are sick.

the westboro baptist is a church and if they were a real church they would not be doing this at all they would be helping the people that have lost friends and family in the shooting. and god wants us to be there for each other to help them not for our self

It is only a matter of time before they push too far at the wrong funeral.
be very careful what you preach it might come back and bite you in the rear! Then a lot of people may be saying "ThankGodForTheShooter"

Their own actions the people of the Westboro Baptist Church continually confirm that they have nothing to do with the true Church established by Jesus Christ in the New Testament. "By this all men will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another." (John 13:35).

Jesus directly said in Matthew 7:15-20: “BEWARE OF FALSE PROPHETS, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly are ravenous wolves. You will know them by their fruits. Grapes are not gathered from thorn bushes nor figs from thistles, are they? “So every good tree bears good fruit, but the bad tree bears bad fruit. “A good tree cannot produce bad fruit, nor can a bad tree produce good fruit. “Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. “So then, you will know them by their fruits."

Regardless of the fact that the "Westboro Baptist Church" call themselves "christians" or God's elect, they are nothing of the kind. They are NOT Christ-followers, nor would they know the will of God if it hit them in the head with a bolt of lightening. They are as vegetarians who eat meat, or the celibate who have sex. Adolf Hitler called himself a "christian"...but was not. Westboro Baptist Church is a NON-CHRISTIAN CULT who have NO true affiliation with the Father, Son or Holy Spirit.
