    These people really need to find something better to do with their lives than worship 24/7, no wonder they're all nuts. :rolleyes:

    RIP Dio, you guys rocked the house last year with Coheed and Cambria.

    These are the same nutjobs who picket soldiers' funerals. I wouldn't take them too seriously.

    Seriously, morons like this just make fools of themselves with their public displays. It's just plain disgraceful.

    Fantastic, let's piss all over someone's grave for the sake of Baptist values. That's real nice.

    These guys should be ashamed. I looked at their website and was really disgusted

    These idiots were here in Myrtle Beach couple of weeks ago, picketing various churches of several denominations, a high school, a McDonalds, another school... I think they picketed the ocean as well.

    Diseased minds. Can't tell if being diseased led to acting this way, or if repeatedly acting like an idiot led to the brain melt.

    A funeral probably attended by tons of rockers with black eye makeup coming up against a bunch of Church nuts--this should be good.

    I entirely expect it to turn ugly with big egos on both sides. Unfortunate, sad, and probably will be the biggest news story of the day.

    I'm pretty sure it's a SIN to picket at a funeral.

    In in the small print of the 10 Commandments. Most people don't read the small print.

    I always thought Christianity was about preaching love for fellow man and not spreading hate?

    That's the first time you've seen it? Wow- they've been around for a while.

    You should see them in person. That will send a chill down your spine.

    Yeah, Dio was a real demon-worshipper. Can't you just tell? :rolleyes:

    I mean, come on. What is this, the 1980s again? Heavy metal rockers don't ACTUALLY worship the devil.

    First time seeing their website, yes. I have heard of Phelps and co a long long time ago though

    They have no decency

    I wonder how long the picketers would sit through Ronnie's extensive catalog being played live and with full sound setup.

    They'd give up half way through Man on the Silver Mountain and get back to bitching at their kids for the things they're going to hell for, but that they've already done.

    XD

    This group showed up a few months ago to protest gay clubs at the high school a few feet from my place and they were quickly mobbed with peaceful demonstrations against them. They were no match but they announced their presence weeks before and of course the media ran with it and promoted their shameful presence. Was over before it began but they were successful in causing attention to their views and I'm sure that's all they wanted.

    The guys with the black eye make-up problaby think Dio was a wuss, they're into darker and heavier stuff. :)


    I hate this church. With a passion. I hate these Christians who bitch at everything they don't like, completely forgetting that their God told them not to judge.

    They're just very messed up in the head. It's obvious from all the "You Must Obey!!" BS they pull that they've all been seriously abused by Reverend Fred. Ah well, he'll be dead soon. I'm sure we'll all mourn appropriately.

    Actually, what they want is to provoke a reaction that includes a law being passed that violates their free speech rights so that they can sue someone. They are professional litigators. It's how they make their living.
