For those of you not familiar with this story, it begins two years ago in Utah where this father took his two boys camping in the middle of the night, in freezing temperatures, only to come home and find his wife "missing". Everyone with a brain knows this father killed his wife. Recently the boys were heard telling people that "mommy" was in the trunk when they went camping and then got lost in a mine.
The state took the two boys away from their father last year and two weeks ago, confirmed that the boys could only visit their father under state supervision.
This last weekend, the father locked the state observer out of the house, attacked his boys with a hatchet and then blew up the house with all three of them in it with ten, one gallon gasoline bombs setup inside the house.
The outcry for the boys has gotten so large that the funeral had to be moved from a LDS church that can handle only 200 members in Puyallup to a church in Tacoma that can handle 1800 people.
Now these fucktards are planning on showing up at the boys funeral to protest the state passing so-called gay marriage. This will get very ugly if these people show up. So far Occupy Tacoma and Occupy Portland are planning a counter protest as well as Patriot Riders and several other conservative groups. I will be out of town or I can guarantee you I would be down there as well.

It sounds like the Westboro Baptist church,they protest anything. They have protested stuff like the funeral of Ronnie James Dio and such.
Of course when they protested against comic con,hilarity ensued.
Government is not the solution to our problem, government is the problem.
We could say they are spending like drunken sailors. That would be unfair to drunken sailors, they're spending their OWN money.

It means he deleted what he was going to say to you...which would have probably hurt your sensitive feelings.
I have no such qualms.

Before you can do things for people, you must be the kind of man who can get things done. But to get things done, you must love the doing, not the people!

When these people protest, violence does happen. I've read of the kids from that church getting attacked. Far worse than a comic protest. I think these protests should be illegal. We're not talking about simple freedom of speech. We're talking about "speech" which provokes violence.

Many people misunderstand the "fighting words" doctrine and the point is rather moot since Chaplinsky has been undone in subsequent rulings. The notion of "fighting words" is rather pedestrian as social and legal constructs go. It's a street mentality.
PS- I have never heard of anyone from WBC being physically attacked. Can you remember any of the particulars?
