[Disclaimer: I am an agnostic and not religious.]
What's the possibility that these Westboro loonies are a disinformation/false flag front for an elite secular group a la the Illuminati? These Westboro idiots certainly discredit the case of their particular brand of Christianity wherever they go, but imho, a little too much. It's almost like they're trying too hard...
I have always been skeptical of the true motivations and origins of this group.
Like you I'm skeptical of this group. I'm not sure about the whole elite thing (including the Illuminati), that is probably because I follow a non abrahamic faint (of European origin ) and we get these sort of wack jobs lurking around the edges trying to disrupt and scavenge members. Honestly I would not be surprised if Phelps was a Church of Satan or Temple of Set Member at some point. I see these groups as left hand path Abrahamics. The god that is talked about in the new testement, and the one in the old, are not really that similar. So either having a kid (Jesus, and I am no beleiver he actually walked the earth either but that is not for this thread) mellowed Jehovah out, or there was a change of Management, and Jehovah got booted out?

I'm sure this is in poor taste, but why is it people shoot up elementary schools and malls but no one shoots up the Westboro Baptist Church?
Are they ever going to go away?

Westboro isnt a religion, its a financial scam. They provoke vunerable greiving people to sue them, they exist on the countersuit wins(on the basis of free speech) for costs

Sometimes I wonder what will happen when Fred Phelps dies. For some reason I get the feeling that it will be one of the most attended funerals in history.

My personal opinion is the Westboro bunch need a good old fashioned can of whupass let go on them.
If they keep taunting they way they have it'll happen and it will be a youtube favorite of millions.
We don't need any new laws to deal with these people.
Civilized societies can solve these problems without running to the law for everything.

I wonder if someone took their info then shot a bunch of their members, would the survivors then picket the funerals of their own friends and family?

Freedom to assault people who say things we don't like. Mind pointing to me to some documentation on that one? I must have missed it. They have the same rights as we do, to hold up signs that say what we think. People advocating violence against these people, you wouldn't cry foul if you were beaten down for expressing yourself with a sign?
