I mean, why on earth can't they just leave people alone? A few years ago, they protested @ the washington state ferries, when the anything but marriage laws were being considered in olympia, and now...

Now they are planning to protest Braden and Charlie Powell's funeral on the day Chris Gregoire (governor of WA state) is expected to sign the bill allowing gay marriage? They are saying these boys were murdered by their father due to gay marriage passing! sickening thought!

at least there will be a counter-protest!

Oh my god, those WBC guys

Oh my god, those WBC guys threatened to come to my town recently to protest a soldier's funeral. I don't think they ever actually showed up, though. They are CRAZY! It is so totally on my bucket list to one day attend a counter-protest against them.

Cool...

Fred rocks!

I think more right wing Christians have started to support gay rights because of him personifying what they claim to believe than whatever HRC and GLAAD have been doing all these years.

He's awesome...

haha, I have several friends...

Planning on being their welcoming committee @ the funeral...but who knows. any time those bastards show up, there are a ton of cops...except when they showed up in a nearby town one time...and that made me mad. I almost decked one of their guys @ the ferry terminal. haha.

Umm...

A lot of the Phelps clan are lawyers, so best to avoid them. I think they are pretty lawsuit-happy. That may actually be their primary revenue stream.

yeah....

Probably. i advised him not to go through with it, but this kid is tired of them picketing military funerals and pretty headstrong. Wouldn't be surprised if it happens, and he ends out in cuffs.
