Seriously. Stop paying attention to them. The only thing this does is call more attention to these shiatheels, and while they're scumbags they thrive on us talking about them.

They're trolls. Ignore them.

I'm not sure I understand your point. We should ignore those that were born and raised in this abomination of a family and were still able to find their way out from under those rabid claws to reach a place in the real world and want to explain just how horrible their own family members are and how they came to understand that by sharing insights of these cultists?

Yes. You have it exactly right. Yay for them, congratulations, you shucked off a farked-up childhood. Join the farking club, get a job and have a good life.

Old man Phelps is pretty much in the grave already. He rarely leaves the house or even conducts sermons anymore. The cult is 99% run by his daughter Shirley now. And her dozen or so children and their spouses and families, only a fraction of whom have managed to get away.

So they'll be around for awhile.

Ticks drink blood. When the host dies, they have to go elsewhere for food. One imagines an animal as large as a moose has a LOT of ticks.

Fred Phelps falls under the category of "people who are lucky their religious beliefs are wrong". If God was the evil bastard he imagines... everyone would go to hell, just because.  Including him.  Instead when he dies he gets painless oblivion.

As for the girls, they are very lucky they had the strength to escape.  Their lives are their own now, and not dictated by their psychotic grandfather (or their mother Shirley Phelps-Roper who will likely take over once he dies).  Like so many of the gays their genetic family hates, they will find a new and more loving family of friends in the outside world.

Yeah, it's not like Christians haven't been the largest source of anti-semitism for 1,915 of the past 2000 years or nothing. Jews were just welcomed with open arms everywhere in Europe while merchants refused to trade with them, lords refused to hire them, peasants called them the murderers of Jesus for choosing Barabbas, Crusades slaughtered them, mobs lynched them, kings exiled them, Empires marginalized them and even science ruled that they were biologically and ethically inferior.

The Jews had it made with the loving compassion and warm embrace of Christianity to protect them. Especially during WWII. They had a swell time then. It was just like going camping.

Yep. That's a smaller moose too.

NCSB: Was doing the usual 110 on the #1 going towards Banff right after the big curve at the Lac des Arcs when a bull moose walked out onto the road 200 meters in front of us. I braked hard and moved to the shoulder of the road and we waited for about 5 minutes while the moose stood in the middle of both lanes of the highway, just being a dick daring someone to hit him. He was 7 feet high at the antlers, atleast. Suzi got some good photos but damned if I have a link.. /NCSB

Yes. And we're talking about Christian evangelicals, who for the past few years have decided that the Jews are actually pretty swell, and they have to protect Israel so God can bring about the apocalypse. Jesus Christ, do some research.

You want to show that you're sorry? Put up or shut up. You helped make a bunch of people's lives hell in their most vulnerable moments. Do everything in your power to right those wrongs you have committed, and work to prevent the kind of hatred you once spewed.  A simple "I'm sorry" won't remove the extra trauma you created for the grieving.

I said Christian fundamentalists, meaning their modern incarnation in the US. I am well aware that the major branches of Christianity have historically persecuted and murdered Jews. It's one of the reasons why my ancestors left Europe.

I don't think the fact that the POTUS in question would be Jewish would bother them nearly as much as the fact that a Jewish POTUS would probably be a liberal. :-) If said Jewish POTUS were a conservative Republican they'd probably be OK with it.

I don't buy it for a second.  They've just traded their reactionary church for the church of political correctness, where Jewilicious and the gays can trot them out as a redemption story.  Same shiat, different day.  In one year they'll have a book deal.

Maybe they can find some tards to march with in the meantime.  That would give them some good press.

Christians are protecting Israel for Christianity's sake, not Judaism. Most Christians couldn't give a flying fark about the Jews and if it weren't for the Holocaust and Civil Rights legislation they'd still be openly persecuting them today (and still do in some sects). The Jews are still not very well-respected in Europe, and in America the general attitude of most pro-Israel groups is still vehemently anti-Jewish.

YOU do some research.

Right now, there seem to be more ticks than usual on the Moose.  It seems that they might be causing moose deaths (due to our milder winters, more ticks live, mean more moose die).  It is estimated that the average moose has somewhere around 30,000 ticks on it.  Some have over 100,000.

How many have you known? That's an irrelevant conjecture when we're talking about organizations and cultural attitudes. None of us are capable of knowing nearly enough to constitute a decent sample set -- unless one of us is a celebrity, which I highly doubt either of us are. So who cares.

Nogale: And did you miss the part of my Boobies where I said "until they try to convert us"?


I never miss the part of your boobies.

I don't think they're interested in converting Jews to Christianity any more than they're interested in converting blacks to white people. Especially since Judaism is seen more as a race and an ethnicity than a religion. They already express open revulsion toward foreigners, immigrants, hispanics, blacks, asians, gays, women and anyone who's not a white Anglo-Saxon protestant heterosexual male, what makes you think they're giving the Jews a free pass?
