I've never thought about that, but you're right. If I ever run another D&D campaign and there's a chaotic neutral character I will tell him on the first day to ask himself WWAD?

Kind of surprised the people of Topeka haven't run these scumbags out of town on a rail. Makes the city look bad for keeping them around.

Hiring them for government jobs is about as far from running them out of town on a rail as you can get. Sure makes it seem like they want them around.

Doesnt it strike anyone as kinda ironic that a group of people who dont want to be identified give out personal identification of others?

Also, while WBC are a bunch of assholes, this still is kind of a dickish move. WBC spreads a message of hate and intolerance, that much isnt up for debate. However, the aspect of publishing private information for others to bully them because you hate the message is a bit unnerving.

I am not defending WBC or their message at all; all I am saying is that this kind of shiat leaves a feeling of sour in my mouth.

Eff that. Part of free speech is owning up to what you're saying. Don't picket soldier's funerals if you can't handle the blow-back. Now that they have these @ssholes' names and addresses, the people of Topeka should canvas their neighborhoods with posters and flyers displaying their names and a list of the evil shiat that they do. For the ones where we know who employs them, hit their businesses too. These d!ckwads abuse the 1st Amendment and our justice system -- it's time for them to feel some heat.

Abuse the first amendment?

Jesus Christ, man, you scare me.

They arent abusing the first amendment. They are using it.

Yes, their message is terrible, and yes, they are complete and utter assholes. But when they are at their homes, that is a bit far. That would be like an anti-abortion group posting personal identification for abortion doctors. Those abortion doctors are conducting a constitutionally protected procedure. By doing shiat like this you are acting like them. You are giving out personal information so others can bully them to stop.

That's an apples and oranges comparison. Abortion is controversial, but it is a medical procedure. There is no service provided by people who picket the funerals of dead kids and victimize their surviving family members. You say I would be just as bad as them, and yet you're defending them. Turnabout is fair play. To date, they show up, shiat all over people's lives, and then go home to a quiet little life where nobody knows what evil shiatheads they are. It's about time they felt a little more uncomfortable.

Maybe you are right. Maybe I am wrong. These guys are indeed assholes. It is difficult for us to have a proper discussion about the WBC where emotions are not so much overtaking.

I am looking at this from a consistency POV rather than an on-case basis. I know the world is not so much black and white, but I really dont like judging others more harshly.

To sum up this ramble, I really dont know.

In a sane world the only time the media would cover Westboro Baptist is when the story breaks that "WBC founder Fred Phelps was killed today when the syphilitic horse he was blowing ejaculated prematurely due to Phelps' prodigious equine fellatio skills and Phelps drowned under a virtual tidal wave of tainted stallion jizz. His corpse was disposed of by shoving a femur up his anus and allowing wild dogs to drag him off."

Their first amendment rights are theirs to use. And hacking into computers and releasing personal info is a crime. I wish the WBC would STFU, or just die, and I hope the cops catch up to those anonymous fellas.

But you and I, we're allowed to enjoy smirking at the whole thing.

Everybody claims that, but I've yet to see any evidence that they're actually making any sort of significant bank out of lawsuits.

Honestly, I think they're doing their shenanigans because they really, truly do believe they're providing a prophetic voice calling the country to repentance. When I watched the Louis Thoreau documentaries, what I came away with was that the WBC crowd isn't all that different than a lot of the people I grew up with who are complete asses to people because they truly believe that they're being loving and confronting people in their sin. If you haven't grown up with people like that, it's hard to believe that the Phelps clan could be sincere, but I've been around enough people whose only difference from the Phelpses is that they're not so abrasive to believe that the Phelpses are true believers. And the thing with people like that is that the more push back they get, and the more hatred they have directed at them, the more convinced they are that they're right. In their minds, they're not getting all of that flack because they're wrong, they're getting it because it's proof that they're right. They take the scripture passage where Jesus said that if the world hated him, it will hate his followers more, and the more they're hated the more convinced they are that they're being like Jesus.

I don't really think there's cognitive dissonance going on. For them it's pretty clear cut--if you believe someone is going to hell and eternal damnation, the most loving thing to do is to be a prophetic voice and tell them that. They believe they're living out the, "faithful are the wounds of a friend" verse from Proverbs

Nah, they're a giant ambulance chaser-type scam. They pull shiat stupid shiat in the hopes of getting their faces punched, then one of the fifty lawyers in the family sues the inevitable face-puncher for fat sacks o' cash. Everything else is secondary to them.

The counter to hate speech is more speech showing off that hate and putting the idea up for ridicule. However, you are suggesting it is perfectly alright to go after the speaker instead of the idea which is not okay. There is a reason the founding fathers all used pen names when talking about ideas that were radical and unpopular in their time. Fast forward to the future and others have used the anonymous pen-name as well to advocate other unfriendly positions through history (women's suffrage, civil rights, gay rights, etc).

Yes the group spews messages most consider hate but don't make the mistake of thinking others view their viewpoint as fringe. It actually seems their method of speaking the message is publicly abhorred but the viewpoint is actually pretty dominate amongst "Christians" and their leaders in general, e.g. Pat Robinson, American Family Association, Bryan Fisher, Mike Huckabee, etc. The views of the church resonate well with many who follow those I listed and more.

Because this is what real life trolling looks like and everyone realizes it.
Touching them will get you sued into the next century, and groups like the ACLU will see to that even if their sleaze ball attorneys don't. They want a nice lucrative lawsuit and they'll use public outrage to get it.

You are expecting mothers and fathers in mourning to take up arms against WBC.
I suspect that's unlikely to happen.
