More info at the link. The TV talking heads said that the reason the whacks at Westboro Baptist were going to picket was because Elizabeth Edwards didn't pray to God for healing and didn't believe she could be.

Fox News


“She INSISTED upon her son’s death, an unremitting disease raging in her body, a whorish husband bringing their family to open shame, & now her death & final judgment,” a press release from the group reads, referencing the 1996 death of Edwards' son in a car accident and John Edwards’ affair with videographer Rielle Hunter.

“When they were visited from the Most High God with the death of their 16-year-old son, they did not humble themselves before His mighty Hand,” the statement said.

Doesn't matter if you are left or right or inbetween ... picketing like this is pure evil.

These people scare me. I don't know how someone could come so far out of touch with reality. I wonder if these people are just sadly misguided and brainwashed...or if they are just evil. Who are these people to claim to know so personally and specifically why God would "hate" someone. Where's the kool aid?!

And WTF does her husband cheating have to do with her sickness and death...how is that her fault, and why do they think (in their logic, crazy logic...) that their son dying meant god didn't want them to have any more children?

How could they think it's right to assume so much authority on such things? Anyone with a drop of respect wouldn't picket outside of a funeral, for any reason. There's a time and a place...

Agreed! So much for laying a loved one to rest in peace when the Westboro Klan comes around.

We all know what will become of the funeral protesters in the end!!

Someone's comment posted on the MNBC story. Worth repeating.




A single vehicle bus accident would be a good thing. There, I said it.

I don't even know what to say about this group..

No wait, I take that back. To be a fly on the wall when these boneheads meet their maker. I think they will be in for one hell of a shock.

I sincerely hope that the riot police are called out to beat the ever loving jesus out of these bastards.

These jerks don't deserve to breathe the same air that we do.

I dont wish anything to happen to these members or their families, but I have got to wonder if any of these people have had a loved one die and kept the funeral details a secret so they wont get their own friends protesting at the funeral?

So many thoughts on this and frustrated because cant seem to get it to writing, but these people make me
and if these are the type of people I would have to share supposedly "eternity" with??? no thanks.

I was listening to talk radio yesterday. They played a clip of one of these wackos. They were comparing Elizabeth Edwards to "the whore of Babaloyn." The things they were saying made me


What ever happen to "don't judge lest though be judged by the same standard?" How about "He who is without sin in his heart cast the first stone."

I wil not denigrate a person for being a christian. However, these people are not "christ like" in any way shape or form.

I'm against picketing any funerals. Whether it's a soldier, politician, famous figure, etc. Make your point known in a civilized classy way.

If I were preparing a funeral for a family member and these Westboro Baptist jackholes said they were going to protest the funeral, then I would publicly spread disinformation about where the funeral was to be held. That way, the protesters show up at the wrong location, thus waste their time.

Ah... Fred.
I wondered when he would slither out of his cave again.
It's been about a month since they were in the news...

The way he piggybacks his "church" onto anything that
can give him free press is sickening.

I wish that people would picket outside his "church" every single
Sunday.
Loudly.

There should be a law about the right to privacy at a funeral. People shouldn't be allowed to picket a death service. It's just wrong. If they feel like complaining and protesting elsewhere, then fine. But around grieving family? You have to be a heartless maggot...

Seriously, if God wants to give these "Christians" an accident and send them all to Hell, I would not be sad.

These kinds of people are why I am an ardent supporter of the 2nd Amendment.

Good luck. They are too busy picketing at funerals to actually go to Church and worship God.

These protesters or whatever they call themselves really make me sick. Do they not have any compassion? They disgust me. What a waste of life.

I have said it before - How this is not labeled a cult and subject to inquiry by DFACS? How is this classified as a "Church"? Does it have tax exempt status?

Not that I think the state should exercise undo authority and interfere with families on a regular basis - by no means to I think that - but it just strikes me as child abuse when I see their poor kids being schlepped all over the country to hold up outrageously hateful signs and their choice of locations to protest strikes me as highly political.

A sample:

Now that they are going after a higher profile person lets see what becomes of it. Lets see if anything changes and if there is any preferential treatment.

The Westboro group - totally insane!!!!! How could anyone in good conscious picket a funeral? I hope they arrest the whole lot of them. Ever notice how they only going after those that are known and in the media - they just want to be noticed. If there is a God (I am agnotstic) they will be in for a surprise when they meet their maker.
