    This is awesome. The best possible way to handle the Westboro loonies, thank you Foo Fighters!

    I seriously do NOT understand why american law allows such a disgrace of a group to exist. Seriously people, they are nearly neo-nazis.

    Well we must allow these freaks their freedom if we want to maintain ours.

    The court of public opinion is all that is needed to show that these people are lunatics.

    I don't think any rational person thinks otherwise.

    Our 1st Amendment allows for freedom of speech. Even despicable speech like Westboro does.

    Yes, it does. And please let them continue. They only help the cause of freedom and equal rights.

    Are we aloud to picket outside their houses? Would be a nice change of wasted time and energy, wouldn't it?

    Don't think so. They are their own worst enemy. :D

    I agree, too (and I think there's probably a compelling argument on the basis of cognitive dissonance). These people are embarrassing enough that they make it difficult for sensible people (a group in which probably, actually, most conservatives in the US actually do fall) progressively more and more difficult to continue aligning themselves with the same causes as the Westboro people.

    Then it would behoove them to clean their own house, and not leave it up to moderates like us to attempt to do it for them. :(

    I think this is happening, albeit excruciatingly slowly. I mean, for god sakes, the biggest avowed enemies of the Westboro people are a bunch of bikers with American flags on their leather Harley jackets, aren't they?
