Anti-Gay Protestors Banned from Reservation

 

The Westboro Baptist Church, known for their controversial anti-gay protests at funerals, have been barred from the Fort Berthold Indian Reservation in North Dakota a day before they had planned to demonstrate the funeral of a recently slain soldier.

"We will not tolerate any harassment that is intended to provoke ill feelings and violence," said Three Affiliated Tribes chairman Marcus Wells Jr. Church spokeswoman Shirley Phelps-Roper said, "We don't get into anyone's private area."

The funeral honored Nation Guard Cpl. Nathan Goodiron, 25, who was killed while on patrol with the 1st Battalion of the 188th Air Defense Artillery when his vehicle was struck by a grenade. He is the first casualty in the war on terror for the tribe.

  Holy Crap !!!  
 
The size of that crowd !! WHOOOHOO !!!

Maybe if this happened more often, those self righteous pompous arragant holier than thou assheads would end this self serving agenda - whatever that truly may be.

Err... who said the protestors were gay? Unless you mean that because their protesting, they themselves are gay?

So... calling someone fat, makes you yourself fat?

  Unfortunately  
 
Nutcases like these will NEVER be affected by things like this as we wish they would. No matter what a crowd would do to them, in their minds it will be because they are holy warriors doing God's work in a land of heathens. As that van window broke, they probably thought they had just endured one more ordeal in the name of the Lord and felt very good about themselves, rather than that they had just harassed a grieving community and were complete douches. If you've ever seen Shirley Phelps-Roper interviewed, you can tell by her blank stare that she's brainwashed into another world. All we can really hope for is that once Fred Phelps finally dies, his kids will not be organized or charismatic enough to carry on his sickness.

"So... calling someone fat, makes you yourself fat?"

Imagine a chunky girl going on and on about how a slightly heavier girl is SO fat and horrible. That would say one of two things:

1) She is clueless about her own appearance and is just a b*tch.
2) She has some real issues with her weight, and projects the hatred she feels for herself onto others with the same despised quality.

Psychology is too complex to be able to say for certain who is just a self-righteous jerk and who is overcompensating for unwanted urges, but porno's ideas are not without merit.

@momentofclarity
So true. Here she is on Tyra Banks recently with her daughters. I love how Tyra owns the daughters when she asks why they watch TV shows that are supportive of gays.

@pornohippy
It's not a stretch of the imagination! Just look at what she is quoted as saying! "We don't get into anyone's private area."

Have you read two of his sons novelette of growing up under Phelps?

Not informed? Keep quiet.

Watching that, I realized what a scary, fragile world those kids live in. 90% of it is their hateful, neurotic religion, and you can see it PHYSICALLY warp them when they start talking about it (the younger daughter even seemed upset to the point of tears). Half of their energy goes into preaching, the other half goes into a rabid defense against any kind of questioning of what they've been taught. Their mother only spends about a fraction of the energy on holding her beliefs together, and you can see it in their eyes why. The daughters still have flickers of thought, but when Phelps-Roper is asked a probing question, there's nothing there - she's an ideological zombie.

Watch your mouth, boy.

I was simply stating that Pornohippy's comment isn't always accurate.

Haven't read my comment properly?

Keep quiet.

  @ momentofclarity  
 
Yes I understand that Pornohippo does have a point. But, he worded it in a way that generalized.

I most definatly agree with your last statement.

The relatives of the protesters said some of them are gay son.

  hmmm  
 
I wonder how they would react to assassinations of Fred Phelps or Shirley Phelps-Roper. According to their interpretation, every death is god's will/wrath enacted.
