a rant on the westboro baptist church
by jennifer kiley
i cannot believe the discussion going on over at youtube around the death of sally ride. some bloody idiot is spouting hell and sin and if you don’t believe in jesus christ that you are going to hell. have some bloody respect. i’m surprised they haven’t blasted her for being gay and having a partner of over 27 years who, it has been reported, does not receive any of the government benefits as a person would who is straight. that strikes me as something people should be concerned about, and that her partner has lost the woman she loves. i wonder if the westboro baptist church antichrists will be being disgusting at sally ride’s funeral, the way they plan on disrupting the funerals for all of those who were killed in the shooting spree in Aurora, Colorado.
if you haven’t heard of the westboro baptist church from florida, definitely google them. they are the lowest form of life on this planet. you may first have heard of them from the Matthew Shepherd funeral. he was just an innocent college kid who happened to be too trusting. when he was hanging out at a near by bar, minding his own business, these two pathetic men coaxed him to come with them. without getting too graphic, they tied him to a hitching post out in the middle of nowhere to die after they beat him into that condition. there reasoning is that he was gay and coming on to them.
they were just good ole boys, homophobic til the end. Matthew’s parents told the court they didn’t want them to get the death penalty even though they killed their son Matthew. that’s when the westboro baptst church appeared more visibly on the scene. they tried to disrupt and condemn Matthew and blame him for his own death because he was a homosexual. there has got to be a law put on the books to protect us from such mean spirited trash as these people are. they even protest at soldiers funerals saying terrible things. they don’t give a shit who they offend or hurt. they should first not be allowed to have church status and second they should be prevented from being closer than ten miles from any funeral for any person who has died in the way the people they protest against have died.
i am just very angry that such people walk this earth and use whatever perverse thinking they have messing around in their brains and go out and disrupt in such a horrible fashion such sacred moments for the people who are left behind from such tragedies as Aurora or Matthew Shepherd or soldiers dying in Afganistan or Iraq or protesting any other kind of tragedy. these are very sick people who need to be kept away from society.

You know what they say: The darkest moment is always just before the Westboro Baptist Church shows up.
If there is one thing that most of us can agree upon as a nation, it is that we do not want the Westboro Baptist Church to come to whatever event it is we are having. Barbecue? No, thank you. Funeral? Please, no. Family reunion? We’d prefer to sit near creepy Uncle Elmo with the glockenspiel collection.
Whatever it is, we do not want the church members, more emphatically yet when we are gathering in the wake of a tragedy. But that is always when they show up, like cockroaches with brightly colored signs…
