    If the Westboro Baptist Church is a "church" and Phelps is a "pastor", then my house is Buckingham Palace and I am the Prince of Wales.

    To call this group a "church group" is insulting to any church group.

    That's a group that protested, alright, but i can't say what kind of group it is, the TOS has a policy against those words.

    This guy recently protested a funeral here in our town. Here is the site:http://www2.tonganoxiemirror.com/photos/galleries/ click on "family,community bid goodbye to fallen soldier." That jerk came with his idiots to protest. There were these biker vets that came for the funeral who refused to let him near the family. And people from the community put together a huge banner so that the family did not see the protesters and the protesters could not see the service. I was so proud of my community that day.

    hey they were in our town this summer or fall, got chased down the road out of the church lot and if it weren't for the police probably lot worse would have happened at some point. they are just ridiculous and i will never understand them one bit. protesting at a funeral besides being completely disrespectful and disgusting, just makes positively no sense whatsoever.

    They protested at our local high school shortly before Christmas. They were upset because our school district allowed an after-school gay club.

    I am sure th ere are suckers who donate to their "cause"....

    This Fred Phelps weirdo is clearly a crackpot. I am glad people (including those on these boards) can see that and are not getting all up in arms over this.
