They don't actually have to show up anymore. They just say they will and get the exact same amount of press.

Ignore. That is what will make them go away.

There's plenty of information available about the Phelps Family and WBC.  It's no longer doing any good for anyone to bring them up, especially when its for not doing something.

The people of Topeka, KS have actually learned the best way to treat the Phelps Family is to completely ignore them.  There is no argument that will make them go "A-HA!  What I am doing is wrong and I will change my ways".

I've seen many counter-protests, which makes the people feel good about themselves because they can demonstrate, yet again, that most people abhor the filth that spews forth from the Phelps clan.   But really the counter-protests are counter-productive.  They only create more reason for media to come and put that horrible family on my screen and in front of millions of more potential viewers every day.

Please artists, famous people, and others.  I know it's hard, but please just ignore these clowns.  Don't give the media any reason to talk about them.

The only thing worse than a troll is a lazy troll. Why go through all of the expense and trouble of going over there and trolling for attention when issuing a press release gets the same results?

TBH, I think WBC doesn't show up much anymore because

1) they know they're pushing it and are going to get shot at/beaten within an inch of their life, and won't be able to sue because no one will have "seen anything".

2) It takes a lot of money to pay for bus, gas, meals and hotel rooms required for these trolling excursions, and AFAIK, WBC hasn't cashed in by suing or settling out of court lately. "cost of troll trips > income made by lawsuits = not going anywhere".

RedPhoenix122: Apos: The Church also plans to protest....a concert by The Eagles in Kansas City.

WTF?! Do these walking pustules of bigotry have a dart board to decide these things?

Take it easy.

Yeah, they're probably already gone.

FTA:  "The Church also plans to protest the third and fourth games of the World Series in St. Louis"

Wow. Even they think the Sox are going to sweep it.
