Those quacks from Kansas...you know whoPosted Wednesday, July 25, 2007, at 12:11 PM
Everyday when I get to work in the morning I peek to see what's on the fax machine and almost everyday is a flyer from the Westboro Baptist Church.
For those of you who don't know who these people are, they're using church in the most liberal sense of the word.
Located in Topeka, KS, they host several vulgar websites claiming to be supporting God by praising the deaths of American soldiers "for this country's fag sins" as they so humbly call it. I won't link to their websites as a matter of personal principal, but anyone curious can google them easy enough.
It's simply disgusting the way these people claim to be Christians. Being against the war is one thing. Peaceful protesting is encouraged in America, but these nuts have gone too far.
This week we received a flyer on how they will be picketing the memorial of Tammy Faye Bakker Messner. Now, I personally have never had much respect for Tammy, but this is simply sick.
They call her names that I won't repeat because I like my job and literally make fun of her.
Not very Christian of these people.
What are your thoughts on these people? Has anyone ever had any run-ins with them?
This is the only time I will discuss them. I don't feel they deserve the publicity.
