That's awesome. A couple years ago I was actually mildly involved in a counter protest when they protested the fact that my HS was named after someone alleged to be gay (Walt Whitman).

I guess I'm the only one that isn't impressed with that. Not to defend these Westboro morons, but to me that sounds like multiple government agencies, law enforcement and individuals conspiring to prevent a group from exercising their right to free speech--a right that was recently upheld by the Supreme Court. They went so far as to apparently assault someone because they disagreed with what they said, prevent them from leaving their hotel parking lot (which someone could probably get charged with kidnapping for, if, you know...the local law enforcement wasnt' crooked and complicit in the crime) and actually have police illegally detain people. It's dispicable, really. I hate what the Westboro people stand for, I hate the way they express their opinion, I hate that the media continues to give them so much attention, I hate just about everything about them, but I absolutely can't support that kind of action to prevent them from protesting.

I'd advise you to stay out of the South. The South is not PC and knows the difference between right and wrong.

I would say that last part is highly debatable, but I think you're right that Art should stay out of the south. :-b

I agree, but it does apply in this case. :-D

If you think that supporting the rights of the Westboro Baptist Church to picket soldiers funerals is "PC" you have absolutely no idea of what "PC" means.
