But the daughter of the church's pastor, Rev. Fred Phelps, told FOXNews.com on Wednesday the church would cancel the protests if given media time on radio and television as a platform to espouse Westboro's beliefs.

What is wrong with these people.
Somebody said something negative about their beliefs and one of their congregation kills 5 young girls and all they can think about is protesting what somebody said?
What is to be said about the 5 girls one of their own murdered, or executed.
Did they even show any remorse for the girls one of their own killed, not that I have heard yet. That to me, is almost like they condone this.
They are almost treating this like the execution of these girls was called for because of the words of somebody else, and know this will give them the platform they need to get their message out.
Isn't this how terrorists work? JUST A COMPARISON!! I'm not calling them terrorists.

The daughter of the church founder, Shirley Phelps-Roper, appeared on Fox New's Hannity and Colmes show last night. This is at least her second appearance on their show.
If you want a glimpse into madness, watch this video clip. It's about 4 and a half minutes long.

Without compassion we are no better than our prejudices.
PARADISE, Pennsylvania (CNN) -- A grieving grandfather told young relatives not to hate the gunman who killed five girls in an Amish schoolhouse massacre, a pastor said on Wednesday.
"As we were standing next to the body of this 13-year-old girl, the grandfather was tutoring the young boys, he was making a point, just saying to the family, 'We must not think evil of this man,' " the Rev. Robert Schenck told CNN.
"It was one of the most touching things I have seen in 25 years of Christian ministry."
he Lord knows I don't think much of most folks that claim to revere and follow the teaching of the Jesus, because often they do not practice what the rhetoric they preach. The grieving grandfather specifically and the Amish in general are an exception. I could not find the forgiveness in my heart that this man is showing and I doubt that many reading this thread could either.
We aren’t anti-war protestors; we aren’t anti-don’t-ask-don’t-tell protestors; we’re the prophets of God….This war had to happen; Bush has to be persuaded to stay in this war; America had to become Babylon. This is the means by which, God is punishing America, and nothing is going to change that fact. We’re going to stay on message….You don’t define us; our duty to God does. Whether it’s by hurricane, IED, terrorists, or other means, God is punishing this nation. He has become an active enemy fighting against America. That is our message…
