The Epitome Of What Is Wrong With Religion

Just got Matlocked! That's right ladies and gentlemen, those nut jobs over at Westboro Baptist Curch has been sued and have lost in a case brought on by the father of a fallen Marine. The jury awarded Mr. Snyder a total of $10.9 million dollars, $2.9 million in compensatory damages, $6 million in punitive damages for invasion of privacy and $2 million for causing emotional distress.

According to the judge they don't even have close to that much money, but for the life of me I hope they take ever single red cent they have. If you don't know these ass clowns these are the bible thumpers who claim God is killing our soldiers due to our tolerance to homosexuality. I'm not kidding, they go around protesting funerals of soldiers killed in Afghanistan and Iraq.

In recent years it had gotten so bad, a certain group intervened in a few funerals to scare off the WBC. I don't know how many folks would ever here someone say God Bless those Hells Angels, but I would assume those families they assisted did.

These are the worst case of religious nuts, the ones who read the bible only a certain way, you know how they just sort of skip over that Jesus section where it tells them to love thy neighbor and what not. Jesus, great man with a great message. It saddens me that so many who claim to follow him never really understand what he says, they don't actually LISTEN to his words of love and compassion. Jesus tried to get folks to love one another, but they still need that hellfire and fury and damnation.

I'll never know why folks need damnation to motivate them, and to give them something or someone to hate. The worst thing about these people are how they get their children to hold up these signs. I wish there was something child services could do to these people, for my opinion they are a threat to the health and well being of these children.

I read about this case this morning and jumped for joy!! I love what the Maryland prosecutor said "Lets fine them so high, that they will think twice about protesting dead soldiets in this state". ANd well, MD agreed.

This retard church is appealing and they believe it will be over-turned. Yeh, good luck nutjobs!!

I'm betting the ACLU picks up their appeal. This is an interesting legal question, and they'll want to get their say.

But, yes, these folk are basically assholes. If they weren't fanatical about their brand of religion, they'd be nuts about the environment, a political party, or the Eagles. Folks like this are everywhere sadly enough.

I think its the mesaage glorifying the deaths of US Soldiers, that is really angering everyone and if indeed the ACLU does pick up the appeal, they will pretty much be hated by the left, as they have always been a thorn in the asses of the right.

Hell, if that were my kid in that box i would surely be in jail for multiple accounts of first degree murder (luckily i have a lawyer *wink wink*).
