Revenge is a Dish Best Served... Stupid?

Because protesting the funeral of children who did nothing wrong is the perfect solution here.

Quote# 77667

A controversial Kansas church is changing its protest plan after an incident in Oklahoma last week.

Members of the Westboro Baptist Church said they want revenge after someone slashed the tires on their van during visit to protest a military funeral in McAlester. The group said it plans to now target funerals for Oklahoma children.

The group said it planned to picket the funeral of an 8-year-old Burneyville girl who died in an accident at the Love County Fairgrounds last week, although no protesters were seen near the services. The group said it would be in Owasso on Thursday to protest the funeral of a girl who died in a car crash.

The Westboro Baptist Church's website now reads "God Hates Oklahoma" and "The Lord curses them by killing Oklahoma's children and casting them into hell. Thank God for more dead children in Oklahoma."

I'm waiting for the day someone just snaps, and pulls a Rasputin death on every one of them. You know, shot, stabbed, beaten, set on fire, drowned. The works. They can't sue if they're all dead, right?

After the WTC terrorist attacks on 9-11-2001, the Phelps visited New York to protest the rescue operation.

They insisted that God was the one responsible for the attacks, just as they believe Him responsible for everything bad that happens to anyone for any reason, ever, and that God was punishing New York. Further, they insisted that the rescue personnel and EMTs were acting in defiance of God's judgment by attempting to save people from the collapsed buildings, and demanded that they leave the injured and trapped to die, as God wanted them all dead, or they would all face His wrath.

There are very few people I really and truly wish to see in pain or dead. However, without apology or regret, I will make an exception for the Phelps...or at least for the adult members of their sick little clan. They wish the same on me and mine, just as they do on us all, and I feel no compunction about returning the favor.

This is blatant attention whoring. They have absolutely no religious grounds for doing this. They're just completely shameless. Which we all already knew, but they seem to be admitting it now, too.

11/28/2010 1:24:13 AM


Wow, you fuckers are low. I mean, I knew the WBC was low, but damn, that's just fucking unforgivable. I... Somehow I'm not as surprised as I'd like to be. Why is that?

11/28/2010 2:35:12 AM


I love free speech. Without WBC having the right to say things like this it wouldn't be so incredibly obvious what a bunch of fucktards they are!

11/28/2010 3:08:12 AM


Westboro Baptist Church : attention whoring for fun and profit.

11/28/2010 4:55:31 AM

Okay, they were horrifying enough before, but this constitutes a Moral Event Horizon. I now declare them to be Complete Monsters.

This is what I love about America.. I mean, don't get me wrong.. here in Britain we have our own fair share of assholes, but after seeing these guys, Glen Beck, and Sarah Palin, it has become clear to me that America is leading the world in its development of a new kind of super-asshole.

It's impressive stuff! It's almost like during a military scientific experiment in the field of asshole-warfare, a couple of experimental assholes escaped and started breeding. Surely you should've come up with some emergency containment program first before experimenting with proto-assholes? You need to do something about this before it gets like "the blob" and you're overrun with escaped assholes!

11/28/2010 6:35:02 AM


C'mon, people, isn't there *any* way you could feed this bunch to the lions?

At least then they'd do some good.

(When Canada closed its borders to these scumbuckets, and furthermore "couldn't guarantee their safety", my friends and I had a celebration!)

One day, someone will snap when these fucktards show up and there will be slashing again, but not of tires. And even though I'm usually not someone to wish harm unto others - I'd like it in that case... Bunch of assholes.

11/28/2010 11:22:29 AM


Well, that sounds fair. Take revenge on an unknown vandal by disturbing the grieving family and friends of dead children. F*ck you with a sharp rock.

Wherever Westboro is, we should nuke it from orbit...
and then nuke it again, just to be sure.

Kansas is big enough to give up a couple thousand square km right?

In fairness to Westboro Baptist Church, they are closest in spirit to the invisible lunatic of biblical fame. This group of obnoxious cretins might have thrived in ancient times, and instead of being generally reviled, they may have been cheered as being of good example. But, this clutch of brutish morons do closely ape the mannerisms of the insane floating sky fairy and are quick to express biblical lunacy in His foul name.

11/28/2010 2:09:47 PM


Dear WBC: Good news! Someone has already died on your behalf. His name is Jesus. Maybe you've heard of him.

@ #1230098

Thanks for the information. Perhaps this freedom of speech provision needs tightening up.

If I believed in demons, I would say that the members of WBC were probably possessed. Certain, by the standards of social behaviour that I have been brought up to respect and obey, these are evil and vicious things they do.

Wax dolls and pins, anyone? LOL

I'm going to sound like a bigot here, but what America has, that the rest of the world generally doesn't, is Baptists. They (and the "independent fundamentalists" who refuse to call themselves Baptists but adhere to Baptist theology) pretty much control the American south. When people talk about the "Bible Belt", what they really mean is the "Baptist Belt". Anyone who wants to appeal to religious conservatives has no choice but to pander to them.

Here is what I propose for Fred Phelp's (or anybody else in the WBC clan) funeral (except the kiddies - they might be salvageable): Instead of a protest, a GREAT BIG GOING AWAY PARTY! With music, dancing, booze, weed, food, naked dancing gays, everything. To celebrate the riddance from the planet of the most evil person in recent history.

And make sure the survivors know about it.
I'm sure the dickheads would show up to protest the party, just shove a joint or beer in their face and say "Enjoy! We sure are! Ha ha!"

11/28/2010 9:40:46 PM


@fireweaver: Will there be dancing lesbians? Because that would be kewl.

11/28/2010 11:28:58 PM


Feel that Christian Love!

This is repulsive, disgusting.

Enjoy the blow back Westboro Baptist!

Molotov cocktail recipe:

1. One glass bottle filled with petrol.
2. One piece of cloth, soaked in alcohol or kerosene.
3. Place cloth in bottle stopper as wick, then light.
4. Throw at target, ensuring that the burning wick ignites the flammable vapors upon the bottle's smashing open.

WBC Address:

3701 West 12th Street, Topeka, Kansas, United States.

You do the math.

Mister Spak

Did they consider the possibility that God slashed their tires?

Maybe we could convince them to protest the funerals of Hells Angels. Tell them Hells Angels are all sodomites.

11/29/2010 6:00:53 AM


I know it's obvious that by "God's will", he means "My will", but this just drives it home even further...

@Raised By Horses

No. Hell no. Violence against these people is NOT the option. First, and most importantly, it could harm someone. They might not care about that, but we should. Second, it lends credence to their cause. Third, it makes victims of them, and a criminal of someone else. Fourth, they are doing a fantastic job of repelling anyone from ever looking at them seriously, and revealing that they don't give two shits about their religion, and care more about being sanctimonious blowhards, and antagonizing people into assault charges to milk someone for a nice juicy civil suit.

TL;DR, let society realize what they really are, and starve the fucking trolls of the attention that they require to survive. Anything else feeds into their desires.

For centuries great minds have wrestled with the question "What are the limits of free expression in a democratic country" Fred Phelps has just inadvertantly answered them.
