    (Joplin, MO) -- The controversial Westboro Baptist Church is planning to protest President Obama's visit to Joplin, Missouri Sunday.
    On its website, the church writes, "Thank God for 125 dead in Joplin."
    Church members claim Missouri Governor Jay Nixon has attacked them by promoting laws banning them from protesting at soldiers' funerals.
    President Obama is planning to visit the tornado-raved city this Sunday. A memorial is also planned that day for the 125 people who lost their lives in the tornado.
    Nixon said Wednesday that the community "must come together and seek a higher power's assistance."
    He said it was appropriate the community gather as one on Memorial Day weekend to remember those who have died in the tornado.

    The Westboro Baptist Church believes tragedies like the tornado are God's punishment on Americans for accepting homosexuality.

    Gee, they might get hit by debris even if the wind isn't blowing.

    God hates tornadoes?
    Olde-style, states' rights conservative. Ask if this concept confuses you.

    I hope not because of violence. The last thing we need is for them to start claiming martyrdom. Ignoring them really is the best tactic, if only we could get the media on board with the strategy.

    I don't think even martyrdom is going to garner this group any more followers. It's an inbred bunch that pretty much nobody wants to be associated with.

    I understand the first amendment protections that are given to these whackos. I would hope, however, that there's a legal way to prohibit procreation within the group.

    If only the "these tornadoes are global warming" crowd would meet them there and have a koolaid party.

    Speaking for all inbred ( we prefer "well-bred" actually) people, I object to you calling this bunch inbred. They are clearly the product of random rutting.
