But the theocrats, and dominionists, and the freaking crazies that need to have the ten commandments posted at the courthouse, I have a real hard time taking them seriously. They. Don't. Get. It.

So they've decided to picket a thrash metal band?
Ok, go ahead, for once I am not annoyed about what the WBC is doing, can't wait to see how this turns out. Video of the event will be fun to watch (hopefully).
Oh wait, they're picketting a members funeral. Now I am annoyed and very dissapointed in WBC again. Why do people do that? Its disrespectful. And its not just the WBC that does picketing at funerals, people did it at Margaret Thatcher's funeral as well.
EDIT: In my opinion it should be illegal to picket at funerals. Anyone who does it should be arrested, removed from the area, and charged with disrespectful behaviour.edit on 5-5-2013 by salainen because: (no reason given)
It's a business. They travel the country, set up websites telling you exactly when they'll be there, and using the most inflammatory statements all over the place, just to get someone to violate their rights for profit. Then they sue the military, the police force that was to protect them, and everyone that is around them for money.
This is a sham, and it is a trap to get people sued. Every member of his family is an attorney. Phelps does not break the law. What he does is try to make you break the law by trying to punch your sensibilities about everything you hold dear, and then sue you and everyone municipality around him to the max.
This is a scam. Whether he believes his posters or not is irrelevant. He's using this as a moneymaking scheme.
Lay one finger on him, do one thing that violates him, and he will sue you, and more importantly, the city, the police department, the US Military, and any private property owner he happens to be standing on to make money off of it.
Scam of the Decade
"This cult of people, a family who claim religion to avoid taxes, has already got over 10 million dollars in court because people do exactly what this cult wants them to do. attack their members so they can sue for more tax free money.so they continue to post up in the worst places imaginable in hopes that people will play into their hands."
"...they’re neither Baptist or a church! They are from Topeka, Kansas. Their web site, godhatesfags.com, does not list any service times, invite anyone to come and worship with them or tell anyone how to get to heaven. It is “pastored” by Fred Phelps, a former civil rights lawyer who was disbarred in 1979. The “church” consists of Phelps’ wife, some of his adult children with their spouses and their grandchildren. THEY ARE ALMOST ALL LAWYERS! The “church” meets in Phelps’ house.
They do what they do for one purpose only: SUE! They try to be as offensive as possible without breaking any laws and when someone takes a swing at them or they’re told by the authorities that they cannot protest here – they file a lawsuit.
IT IS ALL A MONEY-MAKING SCAM! They don’t believe anything that they say really.
THE SO-CALLED WESTBORO BAPTIST CHURCH

Maybe I spoke out of turn there. I was never a Slayer fan but I knew of their music. I guess it lives on and they have new fans now.
It is kind of like my kids getting into old music from when I was a teen.
Ha, Ha, HA I had forgot about that one.
