Westboro Baptist Church
#1
In case anyone doesn't already know, these are the Phelps, the "God Hates Fags" signs people, their home base is in my town. In the middle of Topeka is a small park. In the park is a small "in memoriam" area. It's just a sitting area with the names of some of the locals who have died and people in town sponsor a bench with their name and a brief message on it. A little girl who was killed by a stray bullet through her wall just had one put in for her. The Phelps petitioned recently to have a Matthew Shepard bench put in that would say that he was killed for crimes against God and would be spending eternity in hell, you know, as a warning. The city said no obviously, but the Phelps (they are almost all lawyers) said that the official bench policy was whoever pays for it gets to decide on the message. The city had to remove all of the benches, including the one for the little girl who was shot through her bedroom wall.

There's been a trend lately called Phelps-a-thons. Basically, when Phelps holds one of his God Hates Fags/God Hates America rallies, people get sponsers, and for every minute they protest, people donate money to gay rights groups and AIDS research. Seems to work okay, too.

Brilliant!
Some of those fuckers make it out to Philly once in a while for the bigger rallies. I'll have to look into that the next time they come.

Someone explain this to me. What does it matter about who pays for this bench. Isn't there some law against building a monument badmouthing someone. Wouldn't they have to get permission from the Shepperd family? I mean, I can't build a statue in a park badmouthing one of my teachers or someone can I?

As for building a monument of hate to a teacher, no you can't, at least not without permission because it is public property. However, you can build on in your own yard if you so desire.


Yes but where are they putting this bench? I know you can do whatever you want on your own property but don't they want this in a park or something?

It just seems like there would be a law against this. If I lived next door to you Rich and I built a huge statue in my yard for all to see that said something derogatory about you, can't you do something about it? What if I put this statue in a park in your town? Anyone know what the laws on these situations are like?

Yay Topeka! Why doesn't Phelps move to San Francisco where all of those lost souls are living, waiting to be saved?

Hatred equals God, according to Rev. Phuck. If there is a God, I hope He has a big shit sandwich waiting for Fred when his liver finally gives out.

They came down to the Mississippi Gulf Coast and had a few of their people marching up and down the sidewalk with signs that said GOD HATES FAGS and such and one of them even had an American flag tired to her ankle so she could drag it across the ground. They're doing this in the little town of Gautier, MS which is like doing this in Mayberry. Why they chose this town is anyone's guess but even small town Mississippians wanted to kick their asses out of town.

That whole family has so much negative karma coming back in their direction I suspect even Satan himself will have trouble coming up with a suitable punishment. On the other hand, eternity in a Roman bath house or underground S&M club sounds about right.

AA Westboro Baptist protest troll was knocked the fuck out by a counterprotester today after the throwing an American flag to the ground and stomping on it. The counterprotester was reportedly arrested, but later released without charges.

The Guardians of Valor blog has video of the ass whooping, taken outside the funeral for Sergeant Donna Johnson.

two wrongs don't make a right. Jesus hated lawyers, or at less religious lawyers, the bible says so.

Mat_22:35

Then one of them, which was a lawyer, asked him a question, tempting him, and saying,

Luk_10:25

And, behold, a certain lawyer stood up, and tempted him, saying, Master, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?

Luk_7:30

But the Pharisees and lawyers rejected the counsel of God against themselves, being not baptized of him.

Luk_11:45

Then answered one of the lawyers, and said unto him, Master, thus saying thou reproachest us also.

Luk_11:46

And he said, Woe unto you also, ye lawyers! for ye lade men with burdens grievous to be borne, and ye yourselves touch not the burdens with one of your fingers.

Luk_11:52

Woe unto you, lawyers! for ye have taken away the key of knowledge: ye entered not in yourselves, and them that were entering in ye hindered.

Luk_14:3

And Jesus answering spake unto the lawyers and Pharisees, saying, Is it lawful to heal on the sabbath day?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

God may or may not like homosexuals, but I feel it preatty clear how he feel about lawyers!

Translate "Scribes" as "Lawyers"?

Huh.

AThe King James Bible uses the word "lawyers" in the verses quoted above. The New International Version and New Living Translation Bibles use the words, "experts in the law" or "experts in religious law." The arguments depicted are likely parts of the pattern of Jesus butting heads with clergy and temple employees who observed the letter of the law, but not the spirit, throughout the Gospel story. In that context, bringing those verses into a discussion of the Phelps family's hate cult is probably more than appropriate.

ASo. By now, I assume that everybody has heard about the New York-based congregation of Satanists who trucked down to Mississippi to turn Fred Phelps' mother's ghost into a lesbian through necromancy, yes?

Quote:"We believe that Fred Phelps is obligated to believe that his mother is now gay in the afterlife. Further, if beliefs are inviolable rights, nobody has the right to challenge our right to believe that Fred Phelps believes that his mother is now gay.”


This was exactly what I needed after the last week or two of depressing-as-fuck national news. There's little that I could add to the story to make it any more awesome, save to point out that this is the same congregation of Satanists who have made late night stand up comic routines lately by attempting to adopt a highway in New York City.








The Satanic Temple has until August 5th to raise the necessary funds required by the New York Department of Transportation for their Adopt-A-Highway application to go through, and time is running short. If you'd like to donate, their crowdfunding site is here.

Fun fact - this was done in my hometown of Meridian! Knew instantly from the house directly behind them. That's Magnolia Cemetery - biggest in town. You can actually see the tombstone from the road. Another fun fact - after this article was published, someone put flowers all around the tombstone. I guess they wanted to "not make Phelps' mom gay anymore".  <img src=" src="http://files.chud.com/images/smilies/rolleyes.gif" />



I have a strict policy on not wishing death on anyone, but I am losing no sleep over Phelps' death at all.

AJohn Avarosis, writing on Americablog:


Quote:I’ve always been of the view that Fred Phelps helped the gay rights movement immensely. He provided the perfect encapsulation of the religious right’s hatred of gays. Sure, most of the religious right wouldn’t have the nerve to hold signs calling gays “f*gs,” but they’d think it. They wouldn’t have the nerve to damn us all to hell, but they’d think it.

In the same way the religious right is finally able to fully express its utter hatred for gays by going to Russia, Europe and Africa and helping governments there attempt to outlaw homosexuality, and more generally crush gay and trans people, Fred Phelps was the honest window into the religious right’s soul – the unfiltered expression of their bigotry and intolerance. And he helped show a lot of Americans just how hateful the religious right really is, and just how much prejudice gay people face.

Phelps also motivated an entire new generation of straight gay-rights-activists. Below is a video of students at Santa Monica High School organizing a counter-protest to Phelps’ protest of their school in 2013.

In a very real way, America is about to lose its most effective gay rights advocate.

Good riddance.

Westboro picketed a Kansas City Weird Al concert on June 30th because his gay marriage support makes him a "Lukewarm Christian."  Here's their breathtaking news release.



That these guys are scam artists looking to collect lawsuit money offers only the smallest of consolations - that there's no way it's biologically possible for someone to say something this hateful and mean it:



Quote:
What religious upbringing did Al's parents give him?  Did they teach him what the Lord requires of him?  It sounds like they didn't.  Could that be why swift judgment was brought against them, both dying at the same time due to carbon monoxide poisoning?


A few fans who attended the concert say there was no noticeable disruption, though one of the protesters did post this incredible vine of herself performing her own parody of Michael Jackson's "Bad" - the instant classic "God's Mad."

A Weird Al concert, in Kansas City.  I guess the nice thing about being a Westboro member is that if you're feeling lazy one weekend you can literally just walk up to nearest street corner and protest whatever you happen to see.

A really good article on how Megan Phelps-Roper and another family member left the church. It's pretty inspiring.



Also, it talks about how Fred Phelps was excommunicated from the church.
