    Now I'm all about free speech... but isn't this a little over the top? They had a video clip on FNC of two of these people saying the girls deserved to die and it is better to kill them than to *increase* their suffering in Hell even further than it already is.

    It's the Westboro creeps again. They were in the news recently for protesting at soldiers funerals.

    I'd never heard of Westboro Baptist Church, but I find their behaviour repellent. Especially their actions at military funerals.

    Call me crazy, but I thought they were dying because hostile forces were firing bullets at them? :confused:

    Isn't it time the FBI went Branch Davidian on the WBC? Peddling that much hate in all directions deserves some sort of karma comeback.

    Nasty ignorant inbreds. Ugh!

    I'm glad to see that Rendell still says it straightaway.

    How a bunch of inbred, nutzo relatives can call themselves a church is beyond me. They're not about love--only hate.

    I have no problem admitting that I secretly wish someone would pull a Waco on that entire family while they are sleeping. Vile pieces of dung.

    You don't need police to deal with this group of twirps. Citizen support will do just fine.

    A biker group interposed itself at a recent funeral for a GI. Phelps and his sycophants were amazingly quiet. There is a lesson there. Why bikers? Why not neighbors and/or other local residents?

    I know I'll get flamed for this, but I don't care. I'm sick of these Westboro ****s. I say kill them all. Every last one of them. Slit their throats and mass-burn the bodies.

    These people are worthless. Absolutely horrible, vile human beings. And their ******** should not be tolerated.

    5 CHILDREN die and they think that they'll be going to hell because they're Amish. 5 innocent, young children who have not committed any worse sin than your average child. In all reality, they SUPPORT this kind of lunacy. We want to hunt down and kill terrorists? Well, looks like there's an entire Church made up of them, right on our own soil.

    I agree with everything you said except for this. The reaction of out of the Amish community has really inspired me. I haven't heard any anger out of the families or the community as a whole - only forgiveness. Everytime I have gotten angry since the tragedy, I try to remember that my problem is nothing compares with what they have suffered.

    I know there are always exceptions, but I think you come down too hard on those girls. You say not any worse sin than an average child - I say they would have been an example for Jesus himself.

    Liberal or conservative, I'd like we all owe a debt to Mike Gallagher for the trade.

    I've just been reading up on these Westboro Baptist group on Wikipedia, and all I can say is: chilling. They make the KKK look wishy-washy liberal. Looking up some quotes from their Fuhrer, Phelps, I can say I have never heard anyone less obsessed by male genetalia and rectal areas :( . Covering up for something, maybe?

    The Amish and the Westboro Baptist people -- it's impossible to conceive that they both supposedly worship the same God.

    I think you misinterpreted what I was saying. I'm saying these 5 girls did NOT deserve to die as the Westboro Baptist pieces of crap are saying. I'm saying that the Westboro's are advocating the death of these children, and it pisses me off.

    I know that the Amish community has been very vigilante and has embraced solidarity throughout, which is commendable. But these Westboro bastards saying what they're saying should not be condoned. To think that they advocate the killing of innocent children makes them no worse than any extremist group out there.

    Better yet, nice Photoshops of the Phelps family burning in hell :)

    Although actual shots of that would be preferable....

    Been done. It's also been hacked to point to debunking sites, Pride sites and so on. It was even bought out from under the group for a while. What amazes me is that nobody's beaten "Reverend" Phelps to death with the blunt instrument of your choice yet.
