Pardon my French, but they are really trying our patience as a nation.
On a similar note, about a week ago, a disabled veteran was caught “stalking” the Westboro idiots, with possible intent to murder.
Obviously, violence is not the answer. I myself have advocated giving them a taste of their own medicine, by waiting until one of them dies, and protesting their funeral. See how they like it.
You are not Christians, you idiots. You will burn in hell for what you have done.
Update: Gawker disapproves. Of course Gawker is the same site that ran a contest to come up with a banner to fly on an airplane over Rush Limbaugh’s wedding. So protests at a person’s wedding? Okay! Protest at a person’s funeral? Bad. Glad they cleared that up.
Oh, and the winning submission? “Congrats on your 4th marraige. XO Gawker.” Yeah, classy.
I am glad to see you guys saying the right thing now, but how about a little introspection and maybe an apology?
Update (II): And this strikes me as a strange start to a story:
As if Elizabeth Edwards did not have enough difficulties to face while alive, she is now being dogged even in death, this time by a small, right-wing Kansas church that says it will picket her funeral at a Methodist church in Raleigh on Saturday afternoon.
Now this can be a matter of theological difference, but no, I don’t think anything is likely to be troubling Ms. Edwards right now. I think she is beyond any Earthly concern. I have said at many funerals, the purpose of this funeral is not really for the dead. They aren’t even there to see it. The purpose of a funeral is to serve the emotional needs of the living. And it is the living I was primarily concerned for when I read this story. Yes, even for Jon Edwards, although even more so the members of the family that didn’t choose to live in the limelight.
Which is kind of a nitpicky critique, based on a certain religious perspective, but there you go.
