Hi Summer! Yeah I have been following these peoples actions for many many years now. They are truly sick people, and sometimes with those folks, I
found the best way to deal with them is to ignore them.
Easier said then done however. As nice as it would be to just simply ignore these people, its hard to ignore folks who make it their life mission to
be in YOUR face, and bring their HATE to you!
They spend so much money on plane tickets, and going around the USA to spread their hate.
These Jerks, they use their own children as human sheilds. They use their own children to pass their hateful message across the USA. Which IMO is
child abuse. Some of these kids can not even pronouce the words they carry on their banners. Its sad.
However as much as I loath to say this, They have to be allowed their freedom of speech. As long as it does not cross the line. W.B.B.C are
there to push and test the limits of our right to free speech.
As where does it cross the line from being freedom of speach, into hate speech, and spreading nothing but hate and ignorance. The KKK are allowed
their stupid rallies, for the same reasons.
Anyone is allowed to make a fool of themselves in this country.
However I feel these monsters do press the limits to what is considered free speech. Yet at the same time, if we do not allow them this freedom.
Then in turn it would back fire on the rest of us.
If we shut them up.. What is to stop others from shutting others up who do not agree with their message.
Yeah I know it sucks, and they are real Satan whorshippers in my line of thinking.
Don't get me wrong here.. I am in no way defending their message, or that whole sick family.
I am just stating what the reality of it all is, and why Fred Phelps put all his grand daughters in law school.
Its exposing that our system is broken.
They do not speak for most moderate church going folks.
However they are speaking the word of "God". To them, its all about fire and brimestone. Burning in hell, and all fear based crap.
This is the kind of in your face stuff that has lead to all walks of people stepping up to defend themselves.
Its because of people like this family that so many lines are drawn.
And is proof how dangerous Religion can be to society.
Some can claim.. My faith does not hurt anyone.
Well these peoples Faith, DO hurt people, and will keep on hurting people, as they are protected under our own laws, and rights.
It gets really mixed up and its like trying to untangle a mess of wires. A total rats NEST!
And sometimes these people are just best left alone.. If at all possible.
Otherwise they are baiting you, and manipulating you. Hence they are gaining power over your emotions.
We have to do our best not to let these people gain power over us with their words.
AS hateful and vile as these words may be.. They are all the same stuff over and over again..
A pure shame, and it really exposes the ugly side of what religion is and can be in this world.
Hopefully their kids will grow a mind of their own someday, and once Old Fred Dies.. This group will and their ideas will die along with him.
But as long as Fred Phelps is alive and kicking.. this message will go on.
And if he is successful in brain washing his kids, grandkids.. Then the message will move into the next generation.
I can only hope, we are at the end of a sorry age, where people like this think they speak on behalf of God...
Burns me up inside..
Yet my hands are tied. As I will not allow them power over me.
Unless they come to my home, or my home town.. I just do my best to not give them any more attention. That is all they seek, is attention. They are
like Vampires. They feed off the hate, and the attention..
Here is the Thread I wrote about them, when first joined this website 6 years ago.
100 Demons.. A thread written 6 years ago about West bro. and Fred Phelps.
I understand how frustrating it can be.. I have put the study time into these people, and loath all the time I spent on learning about them. But
knowledge is power.. So I atleast gained enough knowledge about them, to understand how dangerous these people are.
And funny enough.. I found myself on the same side as FOX news, and Shawn H. And Papa Bear Bill O .
That is when you know its bad.. When even Fox news think they are evil and vile.
