The Westboro Baptist "Church" Protests...

Posted by: Jason Tate (03/13/12)
The Westboro Baptist "Church" protests everyone. It's basically their shtick. Pick something popular, protest it, pretend to be outraged, get people riled up ... profit. So, the news that they're "protesting" Radiohead isn't really that surprising. Douchechilll.

They have recorded some pretty hilarious Lady Gaga "parody" videos. I'd love to see their take on one of Radiohead's videos. Maybe "House of Cards"?

I love that even the WBC, the most hateful group I can think of in recent memory, can't even muster enough hate to call Radiohead "bad." Just "mediocre."

ANYWAY, this group is just....idk. I already know this thread will probably turn into a huge discussion about religion. Oh well. All I want to say is that this group are made up of and ran by homeland terrorists. They are not Christian in any sense of the word. The fact that they tag a religion on their hategroup is blasphemous. They should all be snuffed out like Waco. I realize that even posting this news on the web we are only fueling the fire, but it's just insane the lengths the go to for their 'cause.'

The description they gave Radiohrad is hilarious.

Fred Phelps does not believe what he is doing. This is a scam.
It's a business. They travel the country, set up websites telling you exactly when they'll be there, and using the most inflammatory statements all over the place, just to get someone to violate their rights for profit. Then they sue the military, the police force that was to protect them, and everyone that is around them for money. This is a sham, and it is a trap to get people sued. Every member of his family is an attorney. Phelps does not break the law. What he does is try to make you break the law by trying to punch your sensibilities about everything you hold dear, and then sue you and everyone municipality around him to the max.
