Church based on hate is hated. Duh.

Well, they seem to think hate is such a great thing, then they complain that other people hate their religion. Funny part is that they've complained to the Attorney General that they are the victim of a Hate Crime. Is your head spinning like mine?

God Hates You and Pretty Much Everybody Else - Westboro Baptist Church catches fire
"There is evidence that hatred of our religion was the motivation, in part at least," states a "Civil Rights Hate Crime Complaint" written by pastor Fred Phelps Sr. to Attorney General Michael Mukasey. In a recently released YouTube presentation, Phelps also blames law enforcement, judges, and the "filthy, fag-riddled military" for what he considers an assault on his First Amendment rights.

Meanwhile, a neighbor is suspicious that the fire is a hoax meant to intimidate her into giving up her property. "They keep claiming that this property is theirs, and it is not theirs," said 91-year-old Leona McQueen. "They keep wanting to buy me, but I don't want to sell it. I don't know if whether they are trying to push me out."

[...] No picketing signs were harmed.

hmmmmm...

And of course I imagine "Rev." Phelps' fondest wish is to deny first amendment rights to anyone who disagrees with him.

I was talking to my best friend (who is gay) a while back about Phelps, who brought his sickening "God Hates Fags" signs a few years ago to a church here in Chicago that is gay-friendly. My thought was that if god "hates fags" so much, why did he make so many gay people beautiful and talented and made Phelps an ignorant, ugly, talentless asshole?

They are a sad bunch of people. It's a sad commentary when your places burns and the world smiles. Their lives are being wasted.

Ok. but.....

Hating the haters is still hate. Violence and hatred against them is just as wrong as their hatred and intolerance of humans that don't fit their narrow/simple-minded dogma.
