mark12A: The fact that bullets fly daily in America killing adults, kids and even babies while not one of those bullets has ever found its way to WBC is proof there is no God.

Nope. God's protecting them!

The Devil is protecting them.  He doesn't want them on his turf.

Fark you, subby. Everyone else, RTFA.

cameroncrazy1984: Peter von Nostrand: We're talking about them so mission accomplished.

Yeah, I'm sure the WBC checks Fark daily to see if they're mentioned.


The way they're losing out to mma, etc any attention helps

Send them by Carnival Cruise ship.

NobleHam: I think it's more that he realized he was giving them loads of attention, which is their sole nourishment.


Maybe he's an undercover agent of the church, a mancunian candidate.

Just as well, I couldn't have gone anyway. I have to wash my Bible.

All this stunt did is make WBC look good, what a moron
 
2014-08-23 07:15:59 PM  
Admins:  I implore you, stop link to stories about the "Westboro Baptist Church", this bunch of lawyers/trolls needs to meet the black space of neglect, stop farkin feeding them.  You stand up for womyn but you really need to stand up for all of humanity by ignoring this legless asshats and let them die out once and for all.  You are morally bankrupt to us all until you do.
 
2014-08-23 07:17:10 PM  
Drew, why are you letting these trolls get the attention they crave.  Do you want to further fund them?
 
2014-08-23 07:17:16 PM  
who needs a good cockpunching?   subby, that's who.


and what exactly would WBC have to fear from going to Iraq?  they share the same goals as fundamentalist Islamic extremists.  they might just well be welcomed with open arms.

nickdaisy: My pastor says that robin williams done died early because he dressed like a woman and made the sex with men and spent to much time in Hollywood making violence and bad films to make money instead of praising Him. He says that when The Lord calls a sheep the sheep goes even if the sheep has been making the sex with other sheep who are boys and robin williams was called and now he's with The Lord and will have to answer just like I will had to answer after I did that thing to that girl on that retreat and everybody got real mad and now I can't wear scarfs or belts no more unless they're made of something real breakable like. That's what my pastor says.


Good lord. Time for a new pastor.

It would be funny if they got kidnapped for ransom.

BMFPitt: It would be funny if they got kidnapped for ransom.


I was thinking exactly that, also.  Too bad for them there probably isn't anyone that would pay it. They can keep them.
Personally I would have liked if every one of them went over there and were put on the no-fly list after for whatever reason.
Though even if they had tickets in hand I seriously doubt they would go; they'd find some excuse.

"Hello, American Devil. This is Muhammad Stereotype. We are holding the WBC and are demanding hello? Hello? That's like the 20th number. Hey let's ask for money to kill them."

No, you are right. Subby lied in his headline to get the greenlight. Schadenfreude  sells better than the truth.

/That would have been so awesome if they had gone and only then discovered that the tickets were one-way.


And I don't understand the comedian's reason not to send them over. He wants to donate the money? That's fine. Donate what's left after you use the money for what the contributors were intending when they donated it.

I would have watched a live feed of them protesting in Iraq, even paid a fee, just to see how long until someone ended the whole mess. Imagine them trying to sue some random Iraqi.

Where's Jerry Springer when you need him.

Or Morton Downey Jr?

Yeah, you'd be surprised. I mentioned WBC once on twitter and got retweeted about six times by different WBC accounts. They are everywhere.

The admins are too busy making sure no one uses the b word to refer to a woman or offends anyone at all. So good luck with that. Fark is getting closer to Tumblr every day

I guess they realized their, file civil rights lawsuit against local municipality scam wouldn't work as well in Iraq.

Lots of bad people die.

The good people don't die nay more often than the bad people.

That's how I know there is no God.

Your pastor needs therapy.

Fred Phelps was a registered Democrat and ran for public office as a Democrat.

You can't assume all religious fundamentalists are Republicans, just about 99% of them.

And Jim Jones was anti KKK. He was still a murderous douchebag though.

It may be closer to this.

If they're unwilling to hit up Iraq then here are some other suggestions.
- Somalia

- San Pedro Sula
- Anywhere there is regular nuclear testing.

It looks like, according to the article, that WBC continued posting derogatory images and comments after being offered a full ride over there.  Looks like the host basically said, "Okay.  Nevermind then!"
 
2014-08-24 01:17:50 AM  
There was a sheriff some years ago who did not want a convicted child butcher to be paroled into his county.  Quoth the sheriff: "I can't guarantee that somebody won't kill him and I can't guarantee that I'll go looking for them if they do."  Not the best thing for a law enforcement officer to say but I understand the sentiment.
