Westboro Baptist Hypocrites are at it again

Now they are in Canada. They protested some play in Toronto and are now on the way to Winnipeg to protest the funeral of Tim McClean, the young victim of the Greyhound murderer. I live in Winnipeg and I will confront them at the funeral. As much as I feel like taking a baseball bat to the whole lot of them I know this would be wrong...however a good old fashioned egging I believe would be alright - it's non-violent but really messy. I'm buying at least two dozen eggs and showing up at the funeral. These people make me want to puke.

So anyone who dies now is going to get their funeral protested by these nutjobs? What happens when one of them dies?

Whew, that was close

you did remember the FYM MOU* you signed.









* Memorandum of Understanding between Harry West, hereafter known as HV
and FYM Community, hereafter known as FYMC.

reads as follows: For every thread HV starts with any relationship to William Jefferson Clinton and/ or Hillary Roddam Clinton, hereafter known as WJC and/ or HRC, HV must start within 30 minutes one thread on a completely unrelated topic from said WJC and /or HRC. FYMC agrees not to whine and bitch like little children if HV abides by this MOU.

I'm seriously tempted to join you. Maybe throw a few stink bombs as well.

This idiot hasn't met the victim, yet knows everything about him. Typical arrogant WBCer.

I always want to believe that the Westboro Baptist Church are the biggest trolls of our time, just saying the most offensive things possible to rile people up and have a laugh; it's the only way I can make sense of what they do.

As with all things, given the amount of outrage they cause, it surprises me someone hasn't off'd them yet. I'd think someone would stand by the line 'all that is required for evil to prevail is for good men to do nothing'. That said, while I don't condone killing, it surprises me greatly that noone tries to impede them in any way. My sincerest hope is that the Canadian border agents search their vehicles and/or luggage so thoroughly that they're detained at the border and miss the event. Also, that they're charged with trespassing and disturbing the peace, and denied further entry to Canada. If you 'hate' our "rebel nation" so much, then don't fucking come here, dumb motherfuckers.

Update on the situation:

Quote:
Earlier this week, the Westboro Baptist Church - an organization branded as a hate group and infamous for protesting the funerals of slain U.S. soldiers - announced they would picket Mr. McLean's funeral to let Canadians know that his decapitation was God's response to Canadian policies enabling abortion, homosexuality and adultery.

But Shirley Phelps-Roper, daughter of church's founder, Fred Phelps, said a small group of protesters was stopped at the Canada-U.S. border on Thursday afternoon.

"They won't let us in, but we have a group that will cross in another spot," she said. "They'll have to strip search everyone who crosses that border or they won't know who we are. They'll have to see the WBC (Westboro Baptist Church) tattoo on our butts."

I hope they are arrested for violating Canadian hate speech laws. After all, if they're going to exist, they might as well be used against these bigots.

I can't really see how, because the relevant statute says:

Quote:
319. (1) Every one who, by communicating statements in any public place, incites hatred against any identifiable group where such incitement is likely to lead to a breach of the peace is guilty of

(a) an indictable offence and is liable to imprisonment for a term not exceeding two years; or

(b) an offence punishable on summary conviction.


(2) Every one who, by communicating statements, other than in private conversation, wilfully promotes hatred against any identifiable group is guilty of

(a) an indictable offence and is liable to imprisonment for a term not exceeding two years; or

(b) an offence punishable on summary conviction.
I am not sure how you could come up with a plausible argument that they are promoting hatred against an identifiable group.

^ You mean they'd have to be openly doing their "God hates fags" routine during the protest to qualify?

Yes, homosexuals would be an identifiable group.

Just showing up there with signs about Canada's wickedness and what not wouldn't really do it.

Exactly, how was his way of life "filthy?" He seemed like a normal young man, to me. And Tim, certainly did not pick up a knife and stab anyone to death.

The Westboro Church are a sick bunch of people and do not in anyway, represent people who actually follow the teachings of Jesus Christ. I hope that they are arrested at the Canadian/U.S. border.

We're working on it. Good job so far. Hopefully no one else makes although I think they might get a shit-knocking if they show up without a police presence.

Wait...who is this guy? Some dude who died while sleeping on a bus? How can anyone possibly assume that this man's lifestyle was "filthy" without even knowing him or, apparently, much about him? This is stupid, even for Westboro Baptist.

I'm ashamed to call them fellow Christians.

It's not him as much as Canada being a filthy country.

When the courts legalized gay marriage back in 1999, these same people showed up and burned a Canadian flag in protest.
