Westboro Baptist Plans Sandy Hook Picket

Westborobaptistsandy

The Westboro Baptist Church, the hateful congregation known for picketing high-profile messages to spread their tired "God hates fags" message, plans to picket outside Sandy Hook Elementary, the elementary school where Adam Lanza senselessly murdered twenty children last week.

Just when you think Westboro can't sink any lower - well, they do.

  1. I agree with Kiwi. These wackos come across as such inbreds and hillbillies that they actually help our cause.

  2. Let's hope they're met at the town line by some God fearing Christians who understand what the Bible REALLY says about God's love, and God's judgement.

  3. just remember: the WBC didn't convince any americans to vote for Prop 8. their church is no more than like 80 people, comprised of two families.

    they have no actual effect against LGBT people on american culture.

    the real enemy? the sweetly-smiling "Christians" who utterly believe the exact same things as the WBC, but do a better job disguising it.

  4. I actually think WBC is worse than Fischer and Huckabee. The latter two refer to Cod removing his protection from the innocent, whereas the former refers to God directly punishing the innocent. Either way, it's sick religion.

    We the People Petition:
    https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/petition/legally-recognize-westboro-baptist-church-hate-group/DYf3pH2d
    It already has more than enough signatures, but add yours anyway.

  6. They are a scam. They do this in hopes that local authorities will shut them down. They will in turn sue and be awarded money and that's how they continue to live. They hate America but all of their money comes from the government. They refuse to have religious debates with scholars because this is not about religion for them. They.Are.A.Scam.

  9. Archie : What's getting old is the whole "The Westboro Baptist Church actually helps the gay cause by making homophobes look like vicious idiots!" Uh....no kidding? In the U.S. we've been saying that for years now. (In fact, some believe the Westboros are so good, in the long run, for gay rights that they are actually a fraud, a group of actors secretly financed by wealthy gays. I don't believe that, but some do- quite seriously).

  10. ...and there it is...I hope they know to print up an extra sign for Mike Huckabee...I am sure he'll join right in. Disgusting. I do hope whomever can, get's off their collective couches and surrounds these fools with a counter protest.

  11. Anonymous hit Westboro Baptist Church over Sandy Hook picket plans

    Hackers publish private information about church members following news that it would picket the Newtown school


    The ever-hateful Westboro Baptist Church have not failed to deliver in the wake of the Newtown school massacre. The Church, notorious for picketing the funerals of fallen troops with “God Hates Fags” placards, announced Saturday that they would picket Sandy Hook elementary school, where 20 children and six adults were shot dead Friday. Tweets from the Phelps family suggest they believe the horrors in Connecticut are a punishment from God for gay marriage.

    Hacker collective Anonymous were swift to respond, releasing private information of Westboro members including email addresses, phone numbers and home addresses. This video, decrying the church for spreading “seeds of hatred.” The video warns, “We will destroy you. We are coming.”

  12. I totally agree with "LittleKiwi"

  14. You know, I wish you just wouldn't post this crap anymore - why give them any voice - please clean it up - I never want to hear another vile thing they do


    Posted by: Dave | Dec 16, 2012 4:10:45 PM


  15. Guns have a place. We now have the street addresses of the Westboro members and their church. Spray same with bullets, then run. Show up at funerals with placards: You Had It Coming, God Loves Fags.

    Never be so silly as to think that violence doesn't accomplish anything. Ha. It put an end to the Nazis. What works is what counts.

  16. Giving them attention is exactly what they want! Just ignore them! They have no influence on anything or anyone, so why does anyone post about them?? All they are good at is getting attention and this site just feeds right into it. Stop already.

  17. Must be pointed out that 8 Supreme Court justices upheld Westboro's 1st Amendement right to intentionally inflict emotional distress. (Alito dissented.)

    I wonder if 8 justices will similarly uphold the rights of GLBT persons to privacy, to the pursuit of happiness, and to equal protection.

  18. Their only goal is to get attention and provoke outrage, and--as with pitiable Internet trolls--the only worthy response is to ignore them. Feeding their egos only encourages them to believe their empty mission has meaning.

  19. I think this could be the protest that will get a genocidal "maniac" to wipe out that church, and I'm not so certain that many people will try that hard to prosecute the person.

  20. This is entirely in line with their past behavior. The problem with any of this is that the concept of a non-sequitur is foreign. You can pile up any sequence of nonsense reasoning to get any answer you want, so it's a pointless exercise. I would guess the concept of a non-sequitur would be the most important thing to teach kids about the day-to-day world of public affairs.

  21. @YUPP's response: so what the hell does that have to do with yet another swipe by you at Canadians? If you have an issue with Kiwi, address HIS POINT. Don't cloud it by making a dig at entire country. He is not their spokepserson, just as your whiny, childish and ridiculous posts don't make you the spokesperson for this country. Thank God.

    BTW your conspiracy theory would be funny if it weren't just so stupid. You are a sad individual.

    Posted by: ARCHIE | Dec 16, 2012 9:21:53 PM


  22. Archie : How is my saying a country is safe (safe enough to not need a firearm) taking a swipe at it ? I think YOU'RE the strange illogical one here.

    Posted by: Yupp | Dec 16, 2012 9:33:27 PM


  23. Archie : What is my "conspiracy theory" ?

    Posted by: Yupp | Dec 16, 2012 9:35:40 PM


  24. @YUPP: do you even read what you or others post or do you just run off at the mouth with your knee-jerk rantings?

    I never said you were taking a swipe at YOUR country. I said you took a swipe at Canadians as a whole (again) when you meant to point it at Kiwi: "You guys in Canada can pull your superiority act..."

    You said: What is my "conspiracy theory" ?:

    "(In fact, some believe the Westboros are so good, in the long run, for gay rights that they are actually a fraud, a group of actors secretly financed by wealthy gays. I don't believe that, but some do- quite seriously)."

    If you "don't believe it", then why are you spreading the theory? Come on, that's the oldest trick in the book.

    Posted by: ARCHIE | Dec 16, 2012 9:58:02 PM


  25. From my post: "I never said you were taking a swipe at YOUR country."

    Ignore that sentence as I misread your post. But where did you say this:

    "How is my saying a country is safe (safe enough to not need a firearm) taking a swipe at it ?"

    I don't see this posted anywhere in this thread?
