I wonder where some people get the nerve. These "chosen elect" are supposedly protesting where I work on sunday ('where' being a military base.) For those not in the know, the Westboro Baptist Church (WBC) is a fundamentalist offshoot of a traditional baptist church that believes that God is punishing America for allowing homosexuals, Jews, Catholics, Europeans, Mexicans, and whatever they are currently ticked-off at, to exist. Now, I'm all for freedom of speech. I might not like what you have to say, but I'll defend your right to say it. What really puts my panties in a bunch is when they started to protest at military funerals. I mean, seriously. What the frack!? Do they have nothing better to do then pour salt in the grieving family members' wounds, whose sons or daughters gave their lives defending the very ideals of this country. It seriously ticks me off. What are your guy's thoughts on this?
