I have no idea. But that's freedom for ya. They have the freedom to be hateful bigots. I certainly cannot explain why they do what they do.

As far as the parents' role in all of this... If there's a set of parents teaching their kids hate, fear and judgment, and a set of parents teaching their kids love, acceptance and peace, I'm going to be on the side of the latter every single time.

I don't see the parents' roles as equal. Parents are supposed to teach their kids to love, accept and understand.

If I lived near them they would be on my Sunday morning ride by list. I already have two churches in my area that put stupid crap on their signs every week that I cruise by. By cruise by I mean take a couple laps around the block mid-service. I get one at their 9am service and one at their 11am service. Started that little ritual up after several of the little trailer trash members said my son's wouldn't be disabled if my mom wasn't bisexual. Two low blows in one shot get them on my bad side for good. Every Sunday our little congregation of Harley's gets a little bit bigger and a lot louder.

I agree with them having the freedom to so what they do. OTOH, that does not keep me from hoping that a cement truck has a break failure and plowes into them at one of their "protests."
