This time, Freddie's gone too far

I'm thinking that it may be about time to deal with this asshole Fred Phelps. I was pretty offended when he started his protest bullshit at dead servicemen's funerals. THIS however, just goes too fuckin far. Emperor Misha wants a bullet to the head for this assclown. I have to say that I wouldn't lose any sleep over it, but I wonder if we should gather a shitload of people to run down to his church, the Westboro Baptist Church in Topeka, KS and start holding protests of his services every Sunday? Of course, the danger of something like this is that someone could get a little overzealous and do something silly, like burn the church down. Not that I would suggest that someone do that, but I wouldn't cry over it either. Wanna borrow my lighter?

I have to admit, I'm really shocked that there hasn't been any violence at one of these outbreaks of asshattery. I have to applaud the counter protesters who have been very peaceful about it so far. I think so far may be coming to an end. This idiot and his hate church is really pushing the edge of tolerance here.

Would I like to see someone run Freddie and his hate cult down with a bus? Yep. Would I think it was even funnier if the bus driver happened to be gay? Oh Hell Yeah! Would I do it myself? Nope. He's not worth it to me. I think there may be a bigger problem though.

Isn't there some kind of a Baptist Head council? Isn't there a Baptist version of the Vatican? Some big baptist head cheese out there somewhere? Why aren't these people getting out there saying the Freddie boy in no way shape or form represents the Baptist church? Kinda makes me wonder. I think I may have to do some Google.

I linked up to the Rott but you may also want to read the treatment at Stop the ACLU

Yes and no. Baptists have a couple of large denominational groups, most notably the Southern Baptist Convention. However, just about anyone can set up a church and call it a Baptist church. There are 1000's of such 'independant' Baptist churches each one only accountable to themselves.

But at least the SBC has been speaking out against Phelps- Yahoo search for SBC and Phelps

I found you today through the comments over at Blackfive. Thanks for your support of our troops!
