    Wow. This is really, really bad:

    blog notes Fred Phelps' plans to protest at the funerals of the kids killed in the bus crash in Alabama.

    This is in the discussion forum of the Alabama news site al.com.

    Just when you thought the fundie couldn't get any worse... :mad:

    You Christians should be ashamed! :eek:

    WBC to picket the funerals of school
    children killed in Huntsville, Alabama,
    when their school bus from Lee High
    School plunged 30 feet off a highway
    overpass - in religious protest and
    warning: ccGodis not mocked!" Gal. 6:7.
    God Hates Fags! & Fag-Enablers! Ergo,
    God hates Alabama and America
    because they have gone the way of
    ancient Sodom and have become
    The Land of the Sodomite Damned,
    "They say still unto them that despise me, The Lord hath said, Ye
    shall have peace; and they say unto every one that walketh after the
    imagination of his own heart, No evil shall come upon you."
    Jer. 23:17.
    "Behold, a whirlwind of the Lord is gone forth in fury, even a grievous
    whirlwind; it shall fall grievously upon the head of the wicked. The
    anger of the Lord shall not return, until he have executed, and till he
    have performed the thoughts of his heart: in the latter days ye shall
    consider it perfectly." Jer. 23:19-20.
    "I also will laugh at your calamity; I will mock when your fear
    cometh; When your fear cometh as desolation, and your destruction
    cometh as a whirlwind; when distress and anguish cometh upon you.
    Then shall they call upon me, but I will not answer." Prov. 1:26-28.
    God has cursed Alabama and America: 'There is no
    peace, saith the Lord, unto the wicked." Isa. 48:22.

    That's it, put any Christian in one group for the convenience of your judgment.

    Yes, that is very unfair. But this seems to be a trend with Chacala_Nayarit.

    I cant wait till this son of a bitch dies. There will, without a doubt, be protesters at his funeral. We'll see how his family likes being on the receiving end.

    Why wait till he dies?

    Maybe folks should go to his home with torches, and perform a scene from "Frankenstein".

    You wiki'd him?

    The guy's nuts, has a Meth habit and has a serious history of violence. He even cowed the local PD for a number of years. Better to use a rifle from a distance after forging his will to include a casket-funnel at his burial site so mourners have somewhere to urinate.

    You ought to be ashamed for ignorantly blaming an entire religion for the actions of Phelps and his followers.

    Was going to say the same thing. It's so horrible when Christianity gets blamed for what one fundamentalist nutjob does, but when it's a Muslim terrorist, it's perfectly acceptable to blame all 1+ billion Muslims for the actions of a few.

    Equally, so should you. It's a ridiculous generalisation. Phelps and WBC don't speak for Christianity any more than the evangelists do or the people who bomb abortion clinics. These people may think that they're important, but they aren't important in the grand scheme of things.

    It would be good if someone could do something about WBC but I suspect someone somewhere might be willing to pull out their shotgun and Phelps and company will scatter, even if it's just rock salt.

    On the other hand, one day when a Christian starts a thread like this to condemn this man's actions, perhaps some of us will start to take notice.

    I've got the lighter fluid if you've got the torch.

    I am remarkably understanding when it comes to religious beliefs. Until they become absurd. This guy needs medication.

    Couldn't have said that better myself. I don't see a whole lot of Christians getting mad at this guy, saying much to condemn him or doing much to stop him. Some, yes- a lot, no.

    I hope that biker gang that's started stalking the Phelps family turns up again. They're not so mouthy when those guys are around.

    No, the title should read:

    "Insane familly pickets kids killed in bus..."

    You yourself (the OP), unfortunately have bigoted views.

    Just who in the h*&% is this person and why would he do that to those kids family? Haven't they been through enough already? what is bad is that the news media will be there. That happened with a friend of my daughter when she was murdered. It made me sick to my stomach to see them camped out at the church.

    If it is what I am reading, and I don't like it one bit. Lets go tar and feather him!!!!!!

    because there are so many christians, jews, buddhists, hindus, mormons, etc blowing up buses, planes, cars and buildings.

    I do a lot of adventure traveling and have never been warned about the dangers of traveling through any non-muslim country.

    However I can post hundreds of emails and security warnings for traveling through muslim areas.

    And I am not talking about Iraq or the Middle East.

    I am not saying that ALL muslims are extremist but you can not deny that they are prone to violence and taking things way to far.

    The most ridiculous example is what happened when the Danish newspaper printed the carton of Allah (or Mohammed -not sure)

    I agree, Fred Phelps does not represent the christian religion, he's a friggin nutter with his own views and prejudice that simply flies the christianity flag above his own cult.

    There are quite a few non-Muslim countries with travel warnings.

    I know that.

    A current example... next week I will be starting a trip across Thailand, I'm cycling from Chiang Mai down to Phuket. My original plan was to go all the way down to Malaysia but have been warned to stay away from the 3 southern most provinces
