Part of me really wishes that someone would go and shoot all of them up and then he give his reasoning as it was God's will, just to really make their point moot...

That's more extreme and hateful than anything they've ever done. Congratulations, you're actualy worse than wbc.

I'm fine with that, no one ever said I was the best person in the world. I don't care, anyone who protests at an innocent CHILD'S funeral deserves to die in my opinion, I'd be GLAD if they were all shot down. If they can say whatever they want at someone who doesn't deserve negative treatment then I can say whatever I want to someone that's an asshole.

Why?
User avatar #160 to #142 - CrashingSea (01/19/2013) [-]
Cause they go to funeral's and say that it was God's will for the soldiers and children to die, it'd be poetic irony in my eyes.
#279 to #160 - terrorrizor (01/20/2013) [-]
**** it let'em, they can't (and don't) protest soldier funerals at certain times now because of the Fallen Heroes Act or whatever, and it's only a matter of time before it applies to all funerals. I say if this keeps them from going Red State on faggots, sodomites and sexual deviants then so be it.
But you're right, it's wrong and would be ironic.

Hey, I have nothing against the homosexual population, what goes on behind closed doors doesn't affect me in the least. I support them actually, My life doesn't change because Tom and John have a relationship, and I believe they have just as much right as everyone else in the world to be happy. They're not infringing upon anyone, they're not doing any harm physically, mentally, or emotionally to anyone, so let them have their cake and eat it.

I DO, however, have a problem with asshole such as WBC that cant keep their ignorant and arrogant noses out of others' lives and beliefs. For one it's a mockery of the Christian faith itself, and two anyone that does the things they do just deserves to be high fived in the face with a sledge hammer.

i don't mean to sound like a dumbass or anything (i don't get news that fast) but what did this church do to get so much hate?
User avatar #145 to #116 - Furubatsu (01/19/2013) [-]
They beleive things like soldiers dying and children being molested is God's punishment to society for being too leinient on homosexuals
#138 to #116 - Ken M (01/19/2013) [-]
Think of it this way, You served valiantly for the love of your country and died believing in that love? Let me protest your funeral.
User avatar #123 to #116 - tffan (01/19/2013) [-]
For years they have been protesting at military funerals, and at gay rallies with the all too familiar "God hates fags" signs. They're basically really good at pissing off everyone that is in their right mind and give Christians a bad reputation.The final straw occurred when they proclaimed that the Sandy Hook shooting was God's punishment and threatened to picket at the children's funerals; which they didn't.
User avatar #121 to #116 - juciefruit (01/19/2013) [-]
They picket funerals of, well basically everyone. Mostly for people who have died in War. They hold up signs like, "Thank god for dead soldiers" and other really offensive stuff attacking homosexuals, other religions, anybody who'd died, they even tried to picket the funeral of the 20 kids and 7 adults that were murdered in the resent school shooting.
User avatar #120 to #116 - torkildsen (01/19/2013) [-]
Go to the funerals of victims of war and other tragedies, and yell about how God hates them, because they approve of gays. Their attitude is so disgusting as well, always smiling and acting like douchebags when asked questions they can't answer.

The rest of that sentence reads "such as the Southern Poverty Law Center, and has repeatedly displayed the actions typical of several hate groups.", did no one finish the sentence after the colorful line? That's a line from the APPEAL, not a RESPONSE.

I am against the WBC and their behaviour, don't read this as defending them, but all I'm saying is this has not yet been reviewed by the Obama magical fairy princessistration, hold your horses. (Although I think the magical fairy princessistration would have to be nuts to look at these guys and think twice about this proposition)

You're completely right.

Uh, have you never heard of hate crimes? What they are doing falls under such. So, yes, they are doing something illegal.
User avatar #141 to #124 - byposted (01/19/2013) [-]
The poster below me is correct. "Hate crime" implies a crime is being committed, what you are referencing is simple "hate" which isn't punishable by law.

It's time to admit that the WBC is not doing anything wrong. What you feel about them does not change the fact.

I don't think you get what the article's saying. Only individual organizations have recognized Westboro Baptist Church as a hate group. I even Googled the Southern Poverty Law Center and it's not a government organization, so it can't impose legislation against the church. It's more of a civil rights advocacy group. The center "recognizing" Westboro Baptist Church as a hate group has no legal weight. The petition to have the government classify them as a hate group is still up in the air. There's virtually no win here. Chill the **** out.
#118 to #111 - thepenname (01/19/2013) [-]
Well, after researching hate groups a bit more, apparently the SPLC is one of the two largest organizations dedicated to monitoring hate groups in America, so adding Westboro Baptist Church to its list at least shows that their misdeeds have gained national recognition. Apparently the FBI does even draw upon the research of the SPLC and the other organization. So it's a bit of a win, I guess, though the article doesn't state when the SPLC recognized Westboro Baptist Church as a hate group, which would make celebrating over that particular note a bit mistimed.
User avatar #109 - juciefruit (01/19/2013) [-]
Ok, I don't mean to sound stupid on the matter, I'm just ignorant on it. But will anything even change if they're labeled as a hate group? I don't pay that much attention to them, but I think that they don't have to pay taxes because they were a church. Now that they're recognized as a hate group will they have to pay taxes or something? Like what will change, will they still have as many freedoms as they had before or will there be restrictions? I got literally no idea.
#128 to #109 - txikaze (01/19/2013) [-]
They would be barred from having their public protests.
#146 to #128 - verby (01/19/2013) [-]
they'd still be allowed to have protests but it'd be different, they DO have the right to protest, no matter what

Nothing will happen. It's just 'murricans thinking they have accomplished something.

I think they'll be barred from Picketing at funerals all together. I'm not sure.

Okay, first of all the petition only requires a response by someone from the Obama adm inistration, not actual legislation or executive action. In all likelihood nothing will really happen, except some Obama spokesperson writing something about the First Amendment.

Secondly the government has no business designating any group as a "hate group" unless they're violent or intentionally incite violence against others. It should not engage in content discrimination, even if the content is hateful or offensive. The WBC are assholes, but what they do is well within their rights to free speech and free assembly.
People need to learn that the government has a limited purpose. It is not a panacea to solve all their problems, or a parent who will take care of them and punish bullies and restrict freedoms "for their own good", or a weapon to be used against people they dislike.

The Civil Rights Act of 1968 enacted 18 U.S.C. ยง 245(b)(2), which permits federal prosecution of anyone who "willingly injures, intimidates or interferes with another person, or attempts to do so, by force because of the other person's race, color, religion or national origin"

Yeah, they are doing something illegal.

#210 to #129 - Ken M (01/20/2013) [-]
"by force" I've yet to see them physically do anything to anybody.
User avatar #131 to #129 - Ruspanic (01/19/2013) [-]
But they're not doing any of those things.
They've been sued many times and it has even gone to the Supreme Court. What they do is legal, and they're very careful to make sure it's legal.

I agree. Even though I may not like the Westborow Church it's doing exactly what they did to Martin Luther King Jr..

yea, but the KKK would also protest a gay/race rights protest so that isn't saying much.

That's like saying, "this guy with an IQ of 14 thinks your math is wrong, so it must be wrong."
