If you like I can prove on a scientific logical basis that God exists
no you cant it's all bollocks
Members of the Westboro Baptist Church (WBC) have announced their intention to protest at the funeral of Steve Jobs, in a Twitter message sent via an iPhone. The group, best known for their rainbow "God hates fags" signs and web page, are claiming the action is in response to Jobs not using his wealth to promote their …
no you cant it's all bollocks
They can't even spell Westborough correctly...
Bury Steve in the UK where free speech doesn't allow people to crash funerals with protests.
I'll never understand why Americans protect this when they outlaw other speech, such as racism and anti-semitism.
We don't have to worry about the Westboro BC causing this type of problem in the UK
More censorship, and restrictions on freedom.
Great, just what the UK needs.
Well if we're all off on spurious pickets, I'm picketing the company across the road....for, ermm....not promoting my photography! Yeah I know they make sandwiches and sell cakes, but they could promote my artistic work more!!!!
They're barred from the UK...
Very simple, as far as I am concerned. They seek violent reactions and sue as a result, so we should deny them that reaction. Instead, we should show them love and understanding, and here's what I have in mind.
If you see these people protesting anything, don't shout, don't jeer, go up to them, pick a member of their organisation the same sex as yourself, and come on to them. I mean REALLY come on to them, and don't stop until they give the kind of reaction they want from others.
Even if it doesn't work, it'd be a laugh.
Where's the big-wet-sloppy-kiss icon?
There are times when I fantasise about ways of making life hell for this group. Are there ways, for instance, of making their travel to a protest difficult? How do they travel? Are there lists they might get on? And I can't really see any legal ways of setting them up for grief.
The mental image of a broken-down micro-bus full of Westboro Baptists, as the rain keeps on falling and the creek rises is still sorta amusing.
They are a very small bunch of bigoted idiots but they are VERY good at PR.
How can a (large) family manage to get weekly press coverage ???
Just ignore them and they'll disappear.
They are all a bunch of inbred idiots. End of story.
".....group called off many of their proposed action and went home to Topeka, Kansas."
Kansas! Funny! Back to the home of Dorothy. No wonder they're upset about "fags".
I suppose they just click their heels together three times and say "There's no place like home, there's no place like home...".
I don't wish to suggest that their words and actions are somehow more hateful or repulsive just because on this occasion they happen to be concerned with Steve Jobs. They're not. Their obscene and vile actions towards members of the military and gay community (to name but two) are just as repellent.
But I hope they really do try and show up at SJ's funeral, and I really hope they finally get to feel some serious consequences for their evil.
They're the ultimate trolls. Even Trolls get smacked down eventually.
*glances at watch*
"Jobless and Brainless cult with nothing better to do...." plans picket
I would build a purpose built gay / lesbian resort right next to their house.
Alternatively, patent the term "fag" and sue them for copyright infringement.
These hypocritical, attention seeking scum should be completely ignored by all intelligent people.
I don't get it, God isn't reality, it's just belief. Gay's are reality.
Clearly Gays > God. (probably why this fictional character of a bed time story 2000 years ago isn't quite happy with peeps over at gay central)
Or in other words, quit trolling and respect the man (and his family) who pushed the realms of todays technology to the limit, advancing us into the smartphone era.
+1 for iPhoning them to death.
They can burn in it.
a load of Brits to turn up with signs saying "God hates cigarettes".
“The God of the Old Testament is arguably the most unpleasant character in all fiction: jealous and proud of it; a petty, unjust, unforgiving control-freak; a vindictive, bloodthirsty ethnic cleanser; a misogynistic, homophobic, racist, infanticidal, genocidal, filicidal, pestilential, megalomaniacal, sadomasochistic, capriciously malevolent bully.”
― Richard Dawkins, The God Delusion
God has mellowed since then.
But it is bad.
True, that's an accurate description but does any semi-intelligent human in this day and age not realise that the Old Testament was written by some blokes a long time ago? There will always be shepherds and sheep.
Wait for them to turn up and ......
They're not so much a cult as a group of lawyers who provoke people into trying to ban protests and then taking them to court under constitutional law.
It's a scam and sadly it's worked well enough for them to make a living out of it.
The only good news is that they promise to picket all sorts of places (such as the funerals of the murdered kids in Norway) and rarely turn up.
HA HA HAH AHAHA HA HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
Very much to their faces.
What a bunch of complete losers.
As an aside, I don't care what their God wants; even if she exists, if she's that feckin' petty she ain't getting my "vote". I'd rather rot in hell for all eternity than worship at the feet of a cretinous bigot.
Their contact us form could be quite useful in telling them how disgusting they are
I really wish the media (yes that means you!) would stop giving these morons the attention they so clearly want. Ignore them and they will go away.
stop giving these loons the publicity they so desperately seek.
and Phelps would be in Narnia!
That's the word I was looking for - thanks for that. I've always considered the loudest gay bashers closet homosexuals when they don't even realise that? What would I do for laughs without the internet, I just don't know
The WBC loons forgot to point out that God Hates Haters too...
They're figuring on the mourners being upset enough to get physical, then they sue for assault, etc.
I particularly liked hearing about the counter-protest at the San Diego Comic-Con completely pwning them. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jml1_EfCyTA
...that if "God Hates Fags", God is an entity.
Fags are great! (I smoke 20/day, I should know), but I've yet to smoke one with God.
"Fags are great! (I smoke 20/day, I should know)"
been there, done that, got the lung function test results to prove it.
in the doctors own words "if you don't stop smoking and start exercising, BAD THINGS ARE GOING TO HAPPEN TO YOU"
i put the caps in myself, he actually said it in a very matter of fact tone, and being an ex-army doctor didn't really look like he gave a shit what happens.
You're not trying to start an argument are you? What a total big trolling pussy! Andus seems ok to me but that's my judgement only you stupid little nobstretch
if taking issue with smoking is trolling, then yes i am a troll.
there are a million ways i can reply to your post, but nah, it's only smoking and what it does that i have an issue with.
i do apologize however seeing how i seem to have hurt your feelings. for the record i only called the OP a dick because he claimed fags are great. and your post just justified my stance that there are a lot of impressionable young minds who just might get the wrong idea.
happy face icon to make you feel better.
Think the REV IAN PAISLEY gets it right in today`s Belfast News Letter article on Jobs `Learn how to live before you die` - Columnists - News Letter - http://goo.gl/V4Z9N
I'm pretty sure there's a typo in there, but I just can't quite see it...
Given they number in the 100 range, let's be thankful this intolerant and misguided line of thinking is extremely rare in the grand scheme of things.
It's just hugely disrespectful that they choose someone's funeral to make a point of it. Jobs retired and handed the reins to Tim Cook in August, that was the time to do it, if at all.
The Acient Alien theory is that "God" is an alien.
In the movie Paul, Paul the alien smokes plenty of fags.
Therefore "God" does not hate fags.
Pleased as man with man to dwell
Jesus, our Emmanuel
Protest, get attacked, sue.
I can't help thinking this a bit like jetcan flipping in Eve Online...
I have told my four year old that when we walk down the street, she does not have to point out every dog turd in a loud voice. If she can learn that, surely the press can, too.
...Bible, Quran, Torah (or fill in your tome of choice here) toting religious nut-jobs...EVERYWHERE..they are a dangerous lot.
