    If you have the time to watch this, it's just odd...

    Summary:
    The Most Hated Family in America is a TV documentary written and presented by the BBC’s Louis Theroux about the family at the heart of the Westboro Baptist Church. At the heart of the documentary is the Westboro Baptist Church (WBC), headed by Fred Phelps and based in Topeka, Kansas. It runs the website GodHatesFags.com, and GodHatesAmerica.com, and other websites expressing condemnation of LGBT, Roman Catholics, Muslims, Jews, Sweden, Ireland, Canada, The Netherlands, and other groups.
    The organization is monitored by the Anti-Defamation League, and classified as a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center. The group has achieved national notice because of its picketing of funeral processions of U.S. soldiers killed in action in Iraq and Afghanistan.
    The church bases its work around the belief expressed by its best known slogan and the address of its primary website, “God hates fags”, and expresses the opinion, based on its Biblical interpretation, that nearly every tragedy in the world is God’s punishment for homosexuality – specifically society’s increasing tolerance and acceptance of gay, lesbian, and bisexual people. It maintains that God hates homosexuals above all other kinds of “sinners” and that homosexuality should be a capital crime. Louis Theroux stated that the Phelpses are the most extreme people he has ever met.

    I have followed them and I actually confronted them a few times. They are not dangerous. They are sad. Really sad. They show up but now that people know they will be there others show up to drown them out. And they can only send 1-2 of their ilk to stand at up at a funeral. They get drowned out by 20-30 as it should be. They had their moment in the sun and now it is sad.

    It's rather sad they've thrown away their lives for these terrible beliefs.

    I don't see it that way at all! Nobody thought the NAZIs were sad, but plenty of people thought they were bad.

    I don't see your correlation with these people and Nazis. Instead of leading productive lives, these people are indeed throwing away their lives by picketing dead soldiers' funerals. It's sad. Period.

    They believe what they believe and it doesn't matter what we think. I just encountered them in January at the Houston/Penn St bowl game in Dallas, Texas. I saw some drunk fans get in their face but for the most part everyone stayed back because the screaming matches are what they love most.

    Just ask Shirley Phelps (the main character of the documentary and the main leader of the church now) how did she have a child out of wedlock.

    Through all their hate they've created their own version of hell to live in. Again, what a sad waste.

    They are the most hated -- because they are so filled with hate themselves

    No, they are not hating themselves. They love themselves..... like every Catholic and Pentacostal that hates gays. And Jew that hate gays, what, no they love us but they will not allow us to marry? What really is the difference.

    My religion is not crazy like them, but holds the same position. I go to church and they love me, Catholics, ect., but they do not love what I do which is love someone of my own sex.

    As long as you belong to any, ANY, Church that says the same bullshit...you support discrimination. Catholics. Jews....

    This is stupid. Too many people waste too much time and energy on these people. They don;t do anything except stir shit up. They're like PETA.

    Phelps used to be a big lefty-commie civil rights marcher dude.

    He's just always been seraching for an issue to make a name for himself, plain and simple.

    He didn't care about civil rights, and he doesn't hate gays. It's just all about Fred.

    This family has punk'd the whole nation.

    Anyway, the most hated family is still the Kennedys. Scumbags, every single member of that sewer trout brood.

    What is the difference? You support the Catholic church that says the same thing as these right wing crazy's. Say the same thing? What is the difference between the wackos and Catholics?

    wow.....

    I kinda feel bad for the family, especially the children.

    The person I disliked the most from the entire documentary was the main pastor who was rarely seen.
