No electronics, and actually they don't need a permit to protest. They just hold up signs on public property, (the grass from the street to the sidewalk) and sometimes sing. Im telling ya guys I've seen them do about 30 protests, everything is by the book because they know what they are doing.

It would almost be worth the prison sentence to make an example out of the leaders of this sick, mentally abusive group. I can only hope that one day they see the error in their ways and beg for forgiveness from all of those they have hurt. There is NOTHING christian about them. They are as evil, vile, and disgusting as they come.

Unless you wanna end up in jail haha but seriously why protest at a funeral its just ludicrous come on don't people have any more respect for others .

A little girl died let her rest but i guess these fake christian's don't understand that and think somehow they're better then everyone else . They will rest in peace .

i would not consider distracting somebody, making them late, or giving them false reasons to be somewhere else, illegal.

a prank yes.

come on surely somebody in america can think of something to do that is legal, to prevent the protest from happening, especially those who have some form of authority and post or read these boards.

Well one thing is for sure. He called the Arizona shooter, Jared Loughner, an Afghanistan war veteran. Then he said that God is laughing at the people on Earth. It's clear that he's the one that's lost and his followers are more lost than he is.

Besides all his idiotic ranting and vile remarks, he gives praise to a murderer and then declares that God sent Jared Loughner to kill these people.

If he's read the Holy Bible, he'd know that God gave us free enterprise. The words that spew from his mouth might as well had come out of Satan himself.

Do we really need to discuss what kind of Christian or not - - Phelps is?

Isn't that kind of pointless in regards to the actions of him protesting this little girls funeral?

I'm not arguing any of that, I'm just arguing the fact that the people who are trying make rash decisions in a forum. I have more experience most if not all of you with the Phelps. I don't care your thoughts on their christianity at all, the fact of the matter is they know the law and practice it well. They even argued a case infront of the Supreme Court. I'm not a supporter I think its wrong to protest a little girl's funeral. I think they have something bad coming to them at the funeral, many emotions spurred on by the phelp's. It is fair however to say that Fred Hated All

You're right. It doesn't matter what kind of Christian he is. What matters is that he is praising the killing of an innocent child and 5 others. What matters is that he's promoting more killings in his video that's on the link. He is calling for veterans, or anyone, to start killing people in the name of God.

He goes outside the boundaries of what free speech is. Free speech is not about promoting the killing of white people. It's not about promoting the killing of blacks nor the homosexuals or Muslims. Free speech is about the agreements or disagreements without repercussions. Compromise is the product of free speech. Fred Phelps is using free speech against its intention to promote violent behavior.

My wife is in contact with the public everyday and she'll tell me some of the people she comes in contact with are really creepy. Like a guy that had to be banned from where she worked because he was creeping other patrons out by taking pictures on his cell phone of pre-adolescent and adolescent girls. He wasn't arrested but since he was creeping other patrons out, he was told not to come back.

No one can deny this action is out of the ordinary. Fred Phelps actions is out of the ordinary. Before January 8th, Jared Loughner's actions were out of the ordinary. Picketing a funeral is not normal especially when it comes to a 9 year old child who never caused any trouble according to her teachers and friends.

I starred you for posting the interesting video on the link you provided.

I almost feel kind of sorry for someone who is so mentally tortured to have to go through life carrying a heart filled with such hatred towards everyone even his own children.

However, it doesn't give him the right, although the law grants it, to protest the funeral of an innocent child. There's got to be a line drawn somewhere.

Fred Phelps is NOT a Democrat.

Where do you get this from? Your delusional mind?

There's absolutely no way he could be a Democrat. He's a far-right extremist Christian that hates gays and will do anything to link gays to America's problems.

God, the ignorance at this site. You people just can't resist the political bickering, can you?


Your wrong...
Wiki
Fred Waldron Phelps, Sr. (born November 13, 1929) is an American pastor heading the Westboro Baptist Church (WBC), an independent Baptist church based in Topeka, Kansas. The church is monitored as a hate group by the Anti-Defamation League and Southern Poverty Law Center.[1][2][3] Phelps is a disbarred lawyer, founder of the Phelps Chartered law firm, a past civil rights activist in Kansas, and a Democrat who has five times been a candidate for political office in Kansas Democratic Party primaries. He and his daughter, Shirley Phelps-Roper, are banned from entering the United Kingdom.[4]

Apparently no one got the memo that the WBC is essentially a taxed exempt business using the legal system and the constitution to sue people who get pissed at them and react in a stupid way.

Yes there is. There is an explanation much more rational, based on evidence and reason rather than sensationalism and ignorance. You'll find related material in the post above yours.

Someone local needs to approach the local law enforcement, show up at the funeral, and when this ***hole shows up with his handful, have law enforcement turn their heads for about three minutes while you wear these SOB's out.

If no one sees it, it didn't happen.

It's going to take something like that to "learn" these idiots the proper way to behave.

Child abuse is a challenging community issue. I do not want to justify, condone or dispute it. It happens so there is a reason for it and would rather help explain it. Conflict has been a part of life here on Earth for as long as anyone can look back and remember. Circles of violence develop to help promote the cycles and diversity of life. Life has always been on a quest to improve and competition is an important part of this. The strong flourish and weak fade away, always looking for new ways to combine attributes, build a better species and way of life. This has lead us to humans.

Conflict has still played an important role as we fight against nature and each other for survive and to flourish. Wars, natural disasters, disease and many other challenges have all played a part to make man the strong, capable and adaptable race it has become. The success of man has also presented a problem as the world has become more interconnected and interdependent place. The conflict that was so important to the creation will also become its destruction if a resolution is not found. Competition is still important to continue the search for improvement. It is the responsibility of the law to make the distinction between conflict and competition.

Child abuse is a global problem, it is at our heart of our conflict. These cycles of violence have lead some to overcome the challenges while others fell to embraced it. When raised in a community where hate and fear is the order, the conditioning is self perpetuating. While the young grow without the support they need and with little other options, the conditioning imprints and is accepted in the definition of who they become. The mind is adaptable and this can be overcome, but not without the support to confront these many painful, horrific and terrifying experiences. The only was we can live without fear is to confront it. It is up to the community to decide where to draw the line.

I am utterly astounded and disgusted at this.

I am sick to my stomach after watching that video. God does NOT kill innocent people. As a matter of fact, God DOES NOT condone ANY of WBC's actions. That is NOT what the Bible teaches us. ...I am at a loss for words.

All I can say is, WBC is the literal Devil's advocate. Fred Phelps gives Christianity a bad name. When you watch that video, replace all occurrences of "God" with "Satan". Makes much more sense.

If anyone is going to perish, it is himself. How dare he slander the Name of my Father!

They're not political at all.

They're self-admittedly in it for the $$$ via lawsuits. The sooner people stop giving them the attention and the press they so crave for their monetary scheme the better.

When this slimebucket group attempts to picket and carry out their schemes just peacefully and quietly shield and protect the funeral and the family from them, as the Patriot Guard has been doing for the military funerals for YEARS now, and STOP giving them what they so crave...attention and a means to make money off the system.
