Actually, Jerry, I don't believe that "most who have served in the military think that signing the petition is a bad idea."

It is my sister who alerted me to this petition. She is a Veteran of the Iraq War and the widow of a fallen soldier who died in Iraq protecting our freedom. She was alerted to it by other military members.

Contra, we have the opinion of another Iraq war veteran, which is similar to those I've seen many, many tines in various discussions of this type. A few minutes with Google should turn up quite a few others.

Has anyone thought that might well be the point of Westboro. That they are political theatre aimed at promulgating a war against the First Amendment?

These guys have a schedule on their website, with the logistics of a rock tour. Where does a church like this get the scratch?

They're as real as Pro-wrestling.

I hadn't thought of it, but this is quite possible. The whole WBC situation hasn't smelled right since the beginning.

You have a point. However the WBC situation is much more than the Right to Free Speech, etc.

They very well might have ulterior motives to portray Christians as haters and start anti-free speech laws and get Christians persecuted....something is very, very wrong there.

Westboro Baptist Church is going to protest in Newtown, CT

My sister said: "Maybe now civilians will see why we have been fighting these lunatic hate-mongers who protest at military funerals saying that God killed them and that they are fags. Maybe this protest against completely innocent children, them saying God punished them, will wake up society and take down these crazies. I've had my battle with them. We won the battle, but seriously lost the war. They are still here."

They sang traditional hymns at her husband's funeral. The Patriot Guard ((www.patriotguard.org did an excellent job of shielding this group from us. However, WBC decided that no one can "shield" their voices.

*** Moderator's Note ***



Helen uncovered some additional information about the petition and asked me to delete the topic. Instead, I am going to place the new information here so everyone can read it -- we need to know things like thisa re going on!




A friend sent me an email and told me something to the effect that you did. She said that the purpose of the petition is to set a legal precedent, and that whoever made this petition wrote it up to trick conservatives to sign it

She said, "Part of what that group does is TRACK people that are "anti-gay". They work WITH the White House. They understand that the biggest enemy of the Westboro Baptist Church are the church-going Catholics (that they happen to be tracking). It sounds like it is from the Southern Poverty Law Center, or someone very clever who is affiliated and/or at least sympathetic to them.





Here is the location of the petition, in case you want to check it out. Please do NOT sign it! petitions.whitehouse.gov/petition/legally-recognize-westboro-baptist-church-hate-group/DYf3pH2d

This is what my friend was talking about. She saw that Southern Poverty Law Center was involved and knew that the Westboro Baptist Church petition would be used in this way.
