    I'm no longer really shocked by anything these loonies do but now they are blaming the Boston bombing on gay marriage and will be picketing the victims' funerals in an effort to bring awareness to the fact that the death penalty should be "reinstated" for homosexuality.

    When they say 'reinstated" I assume they are referencing some laws written a couple thousand years ago and nothing that involves the American Judicial system. WBC also claim to know who planted the bombs... it was God who sent them in a fury. That's right, according to WBC, taking steps to ensure equal treatment under the law and equal rights to causes God to kill 3 people, including an 8-year-old boy, and injure over 140 others.

    I knew this event, like every other major domestic one, would bring out the loonies. I was hoping we would get a week. People are also already claiming govt conspiracy.

    Obviously Bush was responsible for it - didn't he approve 9/11? Oh, no, that was Cheany - i keep getting all da bad guys mixed up! At least g-o-d approved of it or it wouldn't have happened, or would it?

    One just never knows what to think or whom to believe anymore. I'm going ask my dog (she's in doggie heaven) if she has any "inside info" one can never be too careful about these things!

    People are going to believe what they really, really want to believe. They have their minds made up and they definitely do not need any evidence or facts. We've all seen the pictures of Bush and Cheney climbing thru the elevator shafts in the World Trade Center buildings planting the explosives, right? No? Well, I'm sure that someone out there is busy manufacturing that "evidence". Because there are lots of people convinced that the government was behind 9-11 and it really wasn't airplanes that crashed into the pentagon and in the field in Pennsylvania.

    All kidding aside, I have talked to people who really DO believe this stuff! And why would they believe something as crazy as that? Because they WANT to believe it. (it was really a missile that hit the pentagon!)

    So, yes, there are some who probably DO believe that homosexuality or gay marriage would cause God to have the bombings in Boston. There really are people out there that are that crazy.

    I read Zach's post to my wife. She said the people on your web site are crazy ! I said they don't make this stuff up. It's the world that's crazy. I do find it to be very troubling that these crazed individuals would be low enough to use these people's funerals for their cause.

    NO. No. NO. Don't you know what that means? If they reinstitute the death penalty for gays that means they'll be churning out more of those made for t.v. movies.

    I guess due to the modern day media, which can also be used by deranged people makes this day and age what it is. We can talk about it etc. but I've got the feeling that a lot more of these things are going on below the surface; fanatism in certain groups is promoted and will continue until something in our society stops it; I always preached tolerance, but at a given point the society should take action. For instance the total lack of education related to human behavior and norms in our system helps the "growth" of these idiotic mentalities.

    WBC proves the point I've always tried to point out on extremists. Westboro Baptist Church claims to be Christian but spend way too much time in the OT. They may ask for the death penality by stoning any day now I thing it might have been a big mistake to include Revelation in the Btble as Revelation is not consistant with the message of the NT.

    This group ,for I am embarassed to to use their supposed Christian affililation with the members of the Baptist Faith, were going to try and do their thing at a recent burial of a hero Law Enforcement Officer and a returning vet from the Middle East Conflict who was killed in the line of duty, several motorcycle groups/clubs encircled the entire funeral procession and subsquent interment proceedings thereby dening these nitwits from disrupting any of the honoers being bestowed upon this hero, when they, the Westboro group, heard of the plans they never showed up for their own protest. I mentioned this only to show where their true commitment lies, and that is in self promotion.

    Thus proving gangsters are better than the WBC.

    Looking at all the news lately and comments on this site as well as the state of our government financial as well as making good decissions if any at all. I wonder as a combination of it all where it will in the end lead us too. I've never in my life seen more nonsense than right now; are there still normal thinking people here? Sorry to say they must be a minority by now if you follow the media. I'mshaking my old head again; one of these days it will just fall off.

    Gems, your jumping to conclusions about the motorcycle clubs being gangsters, you might have seen too many "B" movies but the MC's that were at the funeral were mostly Vet. Groups, retired Police riders,and also some just plain old motorcycle enthusists, not one Pagan,The Breed, Warlocks or Hells Angels showed up.
