I did mention that part of my job is funneling money to people who campaign against the WBC, right?
I do love those days.
I agree with this statement -- particularly if they take the time and energy to get themselves down to Australia to do it.
The rodents deserve better. It should be a horrible flesh eating virus. And maybe even THAT deserves better.
I feel in this case that the flesh eating viruses do not deserve that. And the flesh eating Virus is far, far too good an end for these people. And I use the word 'people' in the loosest possible terms.
Oh non-WBC-related-Lord, what have they gone and done now?
Or is this general hate?
In which case, might I suggest that the small rodents be of the plague-carrying variety?
They are apparently going to picket Heath Ledger's funeral because he was an evil sinner for making Brokeback Mountain - and have said so in the vilest most horrible terms possible.
Oh hell no. Oh HELL NO.
I've been full of loathing for these people for years and you think at some point I would stop being surprised at the depths to which they can sink. This is not that point.
Threatening to picket Heath Ledger's funeral, as well as putting out a pamphlety thing saying that now he's in hell.
We will KILL them if they try it.
I will pay for your weapons.
I'm not going to pretend to be a pacifist or a saint or that I love my neighbor all the fucking time, but do these people have nothing better to do than hate?
*cheerfully* C'mon, it's Perth! Western Australia is the capital of mining! Plus, you know. Cricket bats.
Certainly. But there is a difference between getting angry, or not agreeing with someone, and then going out to deliberately picket funerals.
That is just...
*fantasizes about pick axes*
I don't understand why they always have to pick the funerals. If there's anywhere you shouldn't have to deal with their brand of bullshit, it's there.
I just...exactly. It's callous and just...horrible.
They come to Australia, they will be beaten up with cricket bats and feed to dingos.
We do not take kindly to people attacking one of our own, nor to the kind of shit that the Westboro Baptist Church pull.
That kind of talk doesn't help, even if someone else started it.
I'll say what I want in my own journal, thanks.
I don't agree with that statement. But I am with you in anger for the cause of it.
Is there a link that you got your information from that I might have?
I sort of want to ask you a question about the phrasing you used in this post, but I don't want you to feel attacked, or like I'm saying you can't write what you want in your own journal. And it would be an honest question of me trying to understand something, not a rhetorical or lecturing one. If you would be interested in discussing this, I can email you, and if not, no worries. :)
Sure, ask away. :) I may or may not answer until the morning, depending on how long you need to frame your question, but that's just 'cause it's a work night.
Aaaand yes, I am for bed. Take your time - I actually think this discussion will be interesting, and I'm all for honest questions, so yeah. I'll answer in the morning!
Meh, sometimes I find it difficult to get truly angry with them. They're just a cult and they don't have any real power.
No political power, true, but they've still got the power to hurt people, like by picketing funerals.
I reserve my anger for the American government for refusing to take any action until they started picketing military funerals. I think that's a ton more homophobic than anything that Phelps says.
You saw the documentary too, eh?
It's not bad enough that they propagate these messages under cover of religion, but they are bringing up a whole new generation of close-minded, vicious, and misinformed bigots. It's pretty sad and scary stuff.
ETA: I didn't see where they were planning to picket Heath Ledger's funeral. Military funerals I knew about. So I take it you haven't seen the doc then. It's very anger-inducing. And frightening, just in how easily people can be led to believe in and do such things.
