Westboro baptist "church"

Yes, I took government classes both in high school and college. Yes, I fully understand the amendments and our rights as Americans. But as a person with at least half a brain I know there are exceptions to these "rights", like you can't yell "fire" in a crowded movie theatre. How is it ok to use a funeral as a political protest? It makes me ill. The signs these people hold up signs that read things like "God hates fags" and "Thank God for dead soldiers". I've gone to church my whole life and i'm proud to be a Christian but I definitley missed whatever message these people have heard. Where do they even find enough whack jobs to have a whole church based on this disgusting messages?? I'm generally an easy going and calm person, but don't push my buttons! I've never been in a fight, but these people make my blood boil! I can honestly say if I had to actually see them, I might get in my first fight! How can you expect cops to stand there and protect these sick freaks?!

Ok.. I'm getting worked up.. The point of this blog was to share this video we found. Stephen was watching Youtube videos trying to learn more about this whole crazy case. I came in to see what he was watching, when I was walking away with disgust over these videos, he showed me this one. It took me back because he said, "Baby, watch this one. If I die I want this group at my funeral." My attention was caught. God forbid that ever happen! But, I agree with him, I want to join this group. Anyone who knows me, knows I am not a fan of Stephen's motorcycle, but I almost want him to keep it just so we can ride with these people and help protect the families just trying to mourn at their loved one's funeral. Watching this makes me proud to be American again! I will always stand behind our troops.. and if you don't, feel free to stand in front of them! :)

  1. I want to take the WBC out one by one. Ugh. Disgust and rage almost builds up inside of me. To see kids hold signs when they probably don't know why they're holding it. I've heard of these riders though! They were at the funeral of a little girl that died in the Tucson shooting against Rep. Gabrielle Giffords. I would totally love to ride with this group!!

  2. It's horrible how they go and make a really hard situation even worse for the family and friends of the soldier. I am so glad I am atheist.

  3. Hey, I don't know if it was Westboro, but we had obnoxious "Christian" groups come every year to my college and yell at Catholics, Jews, Mormons, etc. Ugh.

    Thanks for finding my blog! I'm excited to see another Pensacola gal in the blogosphere!
