Neither do we understand. But the Westboro Baptist Church does want to protest. They're line of reasoning is that because CT has voted for gay marriage, that this is their punishment from God or something crazy like this.

And what does this report have to do with Fox News?
I swear to you I'm not pulling your leg or trying to start an argument - I really want to know.
Look at the link. That report is from Fox News. And somehow they deliberately throw in the lie that the leader of that Westboro Baptist Church is a Democrat (even though there are numerous examples where he thinks that Obama is the antichrist) as is the rest of his church. And the good guys, the bikers, are immediately labelled conservatives. Maybe they all are, maybe only some are, but that should not be important. The bikers prevented the WBC from protesting and that's what matters. Not distorting everything with a Republican/Democrat label.

Thank you for the explanation.......I understand now - and I'm disgusted.

I loath people who presume that they have a hotline to heaven and they can know what god is thinking. To say that those children were murdered because of gay marriage is horrendous.

There is no rationale for what happened. Those innocent lives were lost because the wrong person got his hands on an arsenal of weapons that's all.

May they rest in peace.

Yeah he has. But to imply that he has anything to do with the modern Democratic Party, as Fox was obviously doing, is manipulative, stupid, evil, absurd, and a downright lie.

Don't forget calling them the "Left-Wing Westboro Cult".

Caleb,

You're brighter than this. Has the Westboro church ever done anything where you would label them a leftwing group?

I was under the impression that people were taking issue with the fact that Fox labeled Phelps as a Democrat. Admittedly, I didn't read the article, so that's probably my fault.

Fox is the only news organization that would bother to mention such a thing because it fits in with the narrative. No other organization has labeled him as anything other than a crazy, hateful man who leads a cult-like "religion."

I think it is stupid to label him a Democrat. Running as a Democrat for moronic reasons =/= being a Democrat, especially when his beliefs are roughly one divided by those of the Democratic Party.

Achtung Bono, the Westboro Baptist "Church" sole purpose for existence is to gain attention by showing up to "protest" anytime something horrific happens.

They're a family of a lot of lawyers, who would like nothing better than for someone to punch one of them in the face so they could sue them for everything they've got.

They're despicable people who do not deserve to have so much attention thrown at them. I wish people wouldn't feel such a need to share the outrage and make their nonsense viral and keep feeding their need for attention.

I like Bill O'Reilly. I don't agree with him all the time, but he is more to the point and the truth than these "bowing to the State" machines:

NBC
CBS
ABC
CNN
(Are these the most trusted news source in America?)

No, he's really fucking not. You have no basis in reality for making any kind of statement like that. But hey, that's never stopped you before, has it?

Thank you.....that makes things a lot clearer.

He's a PROVEN liar, and he is constantly bowing down to party and network lines.
