    Phelps: "Norway must repent or perish!"

    It was, I guess, inevitable that Fred Phelps and the Westboro baptist Church stooped to an even more low than before:
    Anders Breivik is the punishment of God over the fagluvin' Norwegians, and they threaten to picket the funerals of our dead teenagers:

    I'm sorry our nation's nut-case "church" is using your nation's tragic loss to bring attention to themselves. I wish I could send you a few thousand Hell's Angels bikers to keep Phelps and his idiots at bay.

    I'm just amazed that a family of tax evading hate mongers gets to pretend they are a church and get away with this kind of thing.

    IMO.

    And no, I don't want to start an off topic debate on the freedom of religion, 1st ammemdment, etc... Sometimes there are bad people with bad intentions, IMO, and leave it at that.

    the best thing you can do is ignore them. they do it for the publicity.

    Agreed.

    Or blow the church up. I don't think anyone would mind.

    Do you have to let them into the country? I think any sovereign state can block the entry of anyone it wishes if they have no legal status in the country (citizen, landed immigrant, treaty obligations, etc).

    Or let them in and charge them with some crime that carries the maximum penalty. 21 years without those nut-cases would be wonderful!

    Just lock them in Breivik's cell. That ought to be an interesting watch.

    Their existance makes me angry, violent, and willing to beat up a lot of people.

    Isn't it illegal to incite violence? Because I'm being incited a lot right now.

    On the plus side it sounds like the church is disintegrating. Louis Theroux, who did an earlier documentary about the WBC, followed up after alot of defections.



    Warning, documentary contains the language you expect from Westboro, God hates this, god hates that, etc.
