Allow me to point you to another in a long list of reasons why I love this country.

Great job!

Nice, but I'd have a sign in the front yard that said "Oh, and also f*ck you."

freeforever: Mama Phelps herself argued and WON before the Supreme Court .... Seriously, she won her case before the Supreme Court. Not many people can say they've done that.


Actually, about half of the people who've argued a case in front of the Supreme Court can say they've done that.

No, this won't do anything at all. It just feeds them their attention sustenance.

Seriously, the only way to truly get back at the Phelps would be to find some way to totally bankrupt them, evict them from their house, and force them to live in the street, clawing for scraps of food.

And I don't know of any way to do that. So yes, sadly, they win.

No, actually.

Most people before the supreme court have lawyers.

FloydA: ciberido: technofiend: They're not really done until there's a Planned Parenthood on one side of the house and maybe an ACLU branch on the other.  Unless of course zoning laws will allow a gay bar.  Would love to see WBC lose their "church" status as part of the liquor license fight.

Great.  A gay bar.  Next thing you know, somebody will start a nuclear war over this issue.

At the gay bar?

[click]

Yeah!

/This is why I love you, you know.  Electric Six are in the top 10 best bands from Detroit.


Awww, I love you, too.  And not just because you bought me TotalFark.

BarkingUnicorn: what_now: So, this is a thread about the Westboro Baptist Church. And an article about the Westboro Baptist Church. And a guy who spent $80k on the Westboro Baptist Church instead of his original plan- vaccines to Guatemalan babies.

The WBC wins this round.

If  gays are allowed to marry, the next thing you know they'll be stealing vaccines from Guatemalan babies!



I thought it was sex with ducks we had to worry about.

Relatively Obscure: Like WBC even gives a single fark about something like this.


Precisely. They're in it, plain and simple, for the lawsuit money. Most of 'em have nothing against the gays- in all likelihood a lot of them, from the top, so to speak, down, are closeted- they just want to get more lawsuit money. More lawsuit money= more rentboys.

How does FARK decide which of Reddit's posts to steal and post on their site?  Is there an algorithm, or is it just by cutting and pasting the links and then waiting for them to get greenlit?

so what are some of y'all doing by telling the rest of us hairy snoot pickers to hush up about the WBC Phelchery?

You are assuming they believe their own propaganda. They aren't trying to convince anyone, it's all a big scam to keep suing for more money.
 
2013-03-20 04:27:09 AM
OoOoOo, that will learn them! Next we'll stage a Harlem Shake protest. /sarcasm

Yeah, not going to bother them at all.

(And actually, your Jesus-God hates quite a few people if you believe in your Bible there, fella. He says so himself in it.)

Delusions of grandeur are so common in these threads. No, it's not brilliant or heroic.It's a tiny little "ha ha" at best.
A kinda lame attempt to troll the master trollers. It won't really even bother them.

ciberido: Stone Meadow: ciberido: For the record, I don't want the WBC silenced.  For one, I do want unpopular, even hateful, speech protected.  For another,  I prefer it when bigots don't try to hide their bigotry.

That's reasonable. However, I don't think anyone here is advocating WBC be "silenced".

No, but there are people here, such as  BEER_ME_in_CT, who are CLAIMING that people are advocating WBC be "silenced".


Hey it was Voltaire who said that. It was one of his lesser known quotes. LOL

freeforever: ZeroPly: So to summarize, you've got an organization that is conducting a textbook example of free speech - peaceful expression of an unpopular viewpoint on public property. Because their viewpoint is unpopular, our legislative and executive branch have tripped over each other to stop that speech. And because the organization goes to court to try to preserve their free speech rights, they "enjoy" litigation?


This.  And as bad as their "hate speech" is I'm always more disturbed by the militant pro-gay/ farkH8 side that demands adherence to their views and would gladly overlook the First and Eight Amendments if it meant achieving "equality" in the end.

[2.bp.blogspot.com image 400x257]


OH please, we make exceptions to "free speech" all the time, and not even for good reasons. It's illegal to be obscene? Who gets to decide that? A judge's impression of a "reasonable person." Thaaats right! legal speech is popular speech!

doglover: No, actually. Most people before the supreme court have lawyers.


Yes, actually. "Mama" Phelps is a lawyer. Acting like she's some homespun huckleberry who magically won a lawsuit through luck, pluck and virture doesn't change that.
 
2013-03-20 10:07:56 AM
Thanks to these WBC clowns, I can now only read "Baptist" as "Bastard"... It simply will not parse any other way in my brain...

People in this thread talking about how giving them attention is the problem...while giving them attention in this thread...

/but THEY'RE not part of the problem...
 
2013-03-20 06:09:11 PM
From what I've read about the WBC, they think bad publicity is better than no publicity. Even if this pisses off Shirley and her clan, she knows that getting all butthurt over this is what people want to see, so she counter trolls with this "I AIN'T MAD, Y'ALL!" routine. They've been trolling for decades - the only thing that will defeat them is not giving them any attention at all.

SquiggsIN: ZeroPly:(ignored: moronic facist woman)


It's so wonderful when insane people post how stupid they are and make it easy to spot them.

By the way lady, meat tastes delicious, I'll go sacrifice a goat in your honor.


Dude, you totally got Phelps'd by ZP. His (her?) profile is some of the laziest and obvious trollbait i've seen in a long time.

[talkingpointsmemo.com image 652x360]

It does!  Reminds me of 80's Atari games.


It was part of the libbygaysexual agenda back then to soften up your ideas of those colors, and lower your inhibitions to make you find those colors appealing, so when the queer flag bumper stickers came out, you wouldn't mind someone with that color of tie to mount you later in life.
 
2013-03-20 09:44:09 PM
Not sure if anybody has already said it, but that activist guy seems to be saying: Suck it, Westboro Baptist Church!!!

You really missed out on that whole rape thread with that line of thinking.

Bacontastesgood: Anyway, I think some of y'all are missing the point. Once painted, this place will be flipped to a flamboyantly gay military couple with JDs.


I could see that. I want to see that. Hell, if that became a reality TV show, I would watch the shiat out of it, and I detest reality TV.
 
2013-03-23 01:25:24 AM
Good to see someone in Topeka finally getting sick enough of Westboro's shiat to say "we're not all neanderthals in the big empty."
