    Link: Radio Host Persuades Westboro To Cease Protest - DJ trades air time for agreement not to protest 9-year-old Arizona shooting victim. Should he have caved in, I-A-B?

    Kudos to the radio station. I couldn`t listen to the Westboro inbreds blather, even for a laugh, but if keeps their stupid hillbilly asses off the streets during a funeral that`s great.

    It was very thoughtful for the station to lure them away from her funeral... but it still gives them undeserved attention and a platform to spew their hate.
    And, I don`t follow WBC, but this sentence:
    The organization also has a long history of picketing the funerals of fallen American soldiers on the grounds that the nation is too tolerant towards homosexuals.
    Made is seem like it is all about gays. Is it really? WOW.

    Although I`m glad they don`t do their picket at the 9-year old funeral. I feel this is just giving in with these morons.

    If they ever protest near me, I am going to do what I saw some other guys do. Set up a booth directly across from their picketing, and ask for donations, which I will then give to AmFAR (American Federation for AIDS Research) in WBC`s name.

    If you go to their website, you can see where they are going to be for the next few months (see Picket Schedule) -- I`d post a link but I just can`t bring myself to do it. A quick Google search will get you there fine.

    I encourage everyone, if they are coming to your town, to take a lesson from the group in Kansas City a few months ago who figured out where they were going to protest and gathered a larger group of people there. That larger group managed to peacefully run those jerkwads off before the funeral procession passed. Well done.

    The DJ was spot on; we learn in psychiatry that the best way to handle small children who act out is to redirect their fixation. I`m loath to call the Westboro folks children, as it gives kids a bad name, but their understanding of social norms and mutual respect is close to that of a 3 year old.

    I think the real tragedy is that no one has locked them all in their church, released rabid baby raping baboons, and set the whole place on fire. In a civilized work, this would have happened long ago...I mean, really someone would be doing them a favor, they will go to heaven with their hateful god and be wrapped up in blankets of hatred, warm fuzzy hatred.

    So when the article said "The church had previously planned to picket Green`s funeral on Thursday, saying the Arizona shooter had been sent by God to punish sinners in the country." are they saying that the little girl needed to be punished for her sins? If so, how could they think that a nine-year-old could be responsible for heinous sins? ugh all these people need to let people morn without causing them more hurt. Maybe people should start protesting their funerals.

    Schrodinger, you entirely missed my point. I`m not talking about left or right politics. WBC represents neither, they are an insane religious cult. The kind of people who are murderers are also the kind of people who are as delusional and hate filled as the people in WBC.
    To be honest, the WBC is a lot like the KKK, except back in the day the KKK actually got away with murder. I`m sure the people of WBC would be happy to lynch-mob homosexuals if they could get away with it.

    After reading this I looked at some of the interviews of the protesters and let me just say.. please don`t categorize all believers in to the same group as this idiot. She is hippocratic and is hurting her cause rather than helping. I am ashamed of her believing in the same god i do. I no everyone is entitled to their opinion and beliefs but i hope someone gives her a good slap in the face

    Ugh. My brother is a sailor and said when some bodies were being returned to his base from the Middle East, some nutjobs wanted protection to protest. The city the base is in said they would not allow them to have a police escort because the police would be in too much danger. There would be several thousand sailors, airmen, and Marines with access to weapons and a reason to kill the protestors, after all, AND the town is in a very conservative, gun-loving area. They decided not to protest.

    I honestly would have a hard time caring if someone shot them, too. They are horrible, horrible people.

I have personally protested a phelps protest and managed to lower myself to his level by cracking him upside the forehead with a rock at Cornell University. It filled me with many warm fuzzies when I escaped un punished.... god probably guided my homosexual a$$ away from the piggies.
