RE: Westboro Baptist vs Texas A&M
Westboro doesn't believe in what they are protesting. Their primary mission is to sue people who attack them for exercising their first amendment rights. A Westboro would love nothing better than to be assaulted. I believe the primary protestors are all members of the family and law is their chosen profession.

It would be one thing if they believed in what they protested. But to be doing it for the purpose of litigating, that's really sick.

Did they at least say, "Please?" After the compassion thing and all, they should have been at least polite, yes?

So you're telling me people sometimes use religion as a pretense for personal gain Gasp

From linked article:

Quote:Their moral compasses have been broken by their parents, their teachers and their preachers," Steve Drain, a longtime Westboro member, told KBTX-TV. "From the time they were born, they were taught lies such as God loves everybody, and it's OK to be gay, and it's OK to divorce your wife and remarry another one."

It's not clear from the context whether he's talking about society in general, the school they're protesting, or the students who counter-protested. What is obvious is that he's not talking about WBC.

.... in case you missed it:

Quote:Their moral compasses have been broken by their parents, their teachers and their preachers

... is it just me, or is a stunning lack of self-awareness a prerequisite for being a religious fundamentalist?

One would think child services could get involved and remove those children from their WBC parents

You would think but since their "physical" lives are not in danger and they have "first amendment" and all that. There is nothing CS can do.

Not only that, but the majority of America is Christian. I think they all have a bit of a slippery slope fear. If the government infringes on that group, how long until it infringes on theirs? Now, this is just as spurious as any slippery slope argument, but it completely plays into the predictions of persecution they are taught, so I think Americans in general tolerate way more religious extremism than they otherwise have to.
