    Westboro Baptist Rips Off, Pickets Ozzy Osbourne

    BTW, the Osborne family has been very supportive of the gay community. Kelly has been to the rally's, Kelly and Sharon have expressed their support for gay marriage. They have even had fundraisers at their own home for us.

    For the life of me, I can't understand what motivates these people. Are they trying to win converts by alienating people? I just don't get it. They have way too much time on their hands.

    This article uses the phrase "conservative-themed protests" to describe the WBBC. Seriously? How stupid.

    Now they're protesting Ozzy Osbourne concerts because the Osbourne family are supporters of gay rights? Fred Phelps just made me throw up the bat head I just ate.

    I don't think I could possibly loathe any supposedly religious group any more than I do the Westboro Baptists. I think what they do is absolutely the lowest of the low. It's truly disgraceful and an embarrassment to religion.

    Let me help you understand !!! These people really believe they are doing "GODS WORK" for him, they are fanatics, therefore obsessed with doing "GODS WORK", Fanatics become totally consumed by whatever their subject of fanaticism is. Once that takes place the fanatics whole life revolves around their object of attention, its a sickness and permits them to do some very strange things. Human minds work in strange ways when fanaticism takes over and none of us will totally understand those workings.

    I'd still like to be on the end of a fire hose and do some "GODS WORK" of my own divising at one of their protests and 'wash away all their sins' for them. LOL !!!

    As much as I think that would be a fitting sendoff for that royal jerk, I would never stoop to such a level as that would make me no better than any of the Westboro peoplle

    Why? Publicity. Hate sells. And every time we say their name, a hater gets his stings.

    Nevermind Ozzy Osbourne traditionally being associated with satan by frightened Christians and rumored to bite the head off of some animal during a concert in his metal band The Black Sabbath. But because the family supports gay rights he's evil according to the Westboro Baptist Church?

    They're not even picking the most relevant reason to hate people. It's as if they're picking on Amy Winehouse not because she's a drug addict, but because she wears pink socks. This is ridiculously hilarious!

    I can't decide if it's a tragedy or blessing that there is no heaven--or hell--and thus nowhere for Fred to go when he's dead.

    Maybe this lifetime is Fred's hell. I guess that helps me sleep at night.

    I've always wondered what happened after a person dies. Nobody living seems to know. I'm glad somebody finally has the answer. So, after death, are we just annihilated or are we reincarnated?

    Any type of protests by those Westboro lunatics just doesn't surprise me or even shock me. These right wing radicals are nothing more than hatemongering attention whores. The only thing is that they are making themselves look horrible everytime any of them opens their mouth and starts with another ridiculous protest. I feel sorry for the people of Topeka, Kansas since that is where the Westboro loony bin is located. Probably it is time to erect a tall, electrified, steel fence around the WBC compound.
