sick disgusting bastards

wow. I really can’t even begin to describe how disgusted I am right now. ugh.

the other night I was listening to the radio when I heard a news report about people having protests and demonstrations next to soldiers’ funerals. Now, I am totally against the war in Iraq. From the very beginning, I’ve thought that attacking a country without any real justification is utter crap. So of course I totally support people who protest against the war, but doing so at a soldier’s funeral is just wrong. First off, there’s no reason to be disrespecting soldiers… it’s not like it was their decision to go to war; they’re just following orders. Second, regardless of who is at fault, it’s just messed up to be disrespecting the dead and to cause any additional grief to the families/friends of those who are mourning. There’s a time and a place to make yourself heard, and at a funeral is not it.

But it gets worse. As I continued listening to the radio, I found out that these people aren’t protesting the war at all. They’re protesting… homosexuals. Yes that’s right. You may wonder what the fuck gay people have to do with soldier’s funerals. Well it turns out that these people believe that the reason why our troops are being killed in Iraq is that America is tolerant of gay people. Yes, believe it or not, that is the twisted fucking logic that these people believe. They think that because people in our country are ok with people being gay, god is punishing us all by killing our troops. How utterly insane does one have to be to believe such utter crap?? And fine, if you’re going to be an total dumbass and have such idiotic views, then keep them to yourself… don’t go and agonize those who just lost their loved ones.

The people who are doing this belong to the Westboro Baptist Church, and they have been doing it so frequently that 5 separate states so far have had to pass laws making it illegal to protest within 300 feet of a funeral. These people, who’s website is quaintly named “godhatesfags.com”, really are fucking unbelievable and I was just horrified at some of the signs that they bring to these funerals. “fag soldiers in hell”, “Thank god for dead soldiers”, and “they turned America over to fags, they’re coming home in body bags”. Also, apparently being a psychotic homophobe is something the whole family can enjoy, as they bring their little kids to join in the “fun”.

really, what the hell is wrong with these people? It’s almost hard to believe that people like this exist. UGH.

  1. I can’t believe that that counts as free speech and not harrassment or something. Or that any church would want their name behind such activities. Just ew.

  2. Vlad, I’m with you. I swear, I really hate people sometime. I already feel like an old fart in a young guy’s body. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, Humans have an infinite capacity for stupidity. Why, oh why do we let the stupid ones walk around in public? Makes me sick I have to breathe the same air as these people. And all in the name of religion. Yee haw!

  3. That’s fucking horrible! And look how psyched that little kid looks! What *is* that? Jesus!

  4. I’d like to go stand in front of those fuckers with a sign that says “God Hates IGNORANT ASSHOLES!”.

    It reminds me of this asshole that parks his giant anti gay-marriage truck (covered with these crazy hand painted signs) around Sacramento. I saw him outside a concert and he was standing in front of his truck video taping all of the people walking out of the concert. It was really creppy and I wanted to go yell at him, but I didn’t really want to be on his creepy video.

  5. well, i guess it doesn’t count as free speech. so far, 5 states have passed laws to ban this kind of disgustng behavior.

  6. yeah some people definitely do have an infinite capacity for stupidity… luckily, for the most part, i think people are have an infinite capacity to be good too.

  7. yeah. poor kid. how shitty must your luck be to be born to sicko parents like that? pretty much any chances of you turning out to grow up normal are shot.
