Outrage as Westboro Baptist plans praise gathering outside Sandy Hook Elementary school to celebrate God ´executing his judgement´ in horrific shooting rampage that killed 20 children and 6 adults Daily Mail [UK], by Leslie Larson
The tight-knit community of Newtown, Connecticut is numb in the aftermath of the heart-wrenching massacre at the Sandy Hook Elementary school on Friday when a gunman killed 20 young students, all aged six and seven, in addition to six adults. As families mourn the lives that were cut short in this unspeakable horror, an extremist group has announced they plan to congregate at the scene of the tragedy and offer praise to God for ´executing his judgement´--an unthinkable act amidst the sorrow overwhelming the quiet town. A member from the Westboro Baptist Church, an unaffiliated religious group that self-identifies as
Comments: Speaking of mental health. . . .
I hope the crowd of Patriot Guard Riders who block these non-humans is ten times bigger than anything they´ve done in the past. Make that fifty.
These are sadistic, mentally ill people. The law is completely unable to deal with their madness, and they are in fact emboldened by that knowledge. The only thing that will stop them is righteous violence. May it be done.
People who bastardize the Christian faith (think Crusades) have always been exploited by non-Christians and Leftists to represent the true Christian faith, sollowers of which would never do nor say such things as the Westboro BC is doing and saying. They are hate freaks and there is no way they could possibly know what "God´s judment" is or isn´t.
Atheists believe they can use this hate group to smear real Christians but it won´t work because the real Christians will rise up against them.
As to why an all-powerful, all-good God would permit such evils as this latest one, the Holocaust, the Armenian slaughters and other ethnic cleansing outrages, as well as why He would permit such corruption and evil in American politics today, that is a question only God will answer in His own good timing.
None of us may be around to find out but justice WILL be done and God´s purposes WILL come to pass at some point.
The moment we begin asking God why He allows something to happen, we have admitted we do not know His character and we do not personally know Him.
These lunatics simply do not know the Bible. They carried a sign recently that said, "God hates sinners", do they not know that God´s son, Jesus Christ died for sinners!. God hates the sin, but loves the sinner and offered a way to overcome. I cringe whenever the Westboro church is mentioned, the Baptist Convention should sue to have the name "Baptist" taken away from such a hate group.
It bothers me that some whacked out ´family´ led by an offbeat child abuser can get by with calling itself a Baptist church. The motley evil band is a Hate Group as well as a Security Threat Group which is neoNazi in philosophy.
The Patriot Guard won´t stop anything, that´a not our charter. We provide a shield of members and flags to protect the families from idiots like Westboro, but we do not interact with them as that would actually be counter-productive.
I never supported the Hell´s Angels in the Altamont concert "security" thing for the Stones, but I think maybe it´s time for the Guard to stand down and let the Angels provide for these families, they have no compunction to avoid "confrontation".
I think Newtown and CT resdients will take care of these deviants. Not violently, just shielding them. Evil, the devil, was on display with the shooter. These people are tthe support troops. They must be confronted. Abruptly.

Fred Phelps is an attorney. He provokes in hopes of being assaulted so that he can extort a settlement from his victims and fund his hate filled enterprise. Of course the theoretical limit of that business model is that he must survive the initial confrontation.
So far he has chosen his targets with due consideration to his long-term survival, after all, he cancelled that West Virginia adventure after considering how many abandoned coal mines would be convenient graves. He might want to re-think this little road trip as well.
Perhaps the Patriot Guard can contract out security to Hell´s Angels for these funerals.
When those Westbro freaks came to nearby McAlester OK, oh oopppsy, their van tires went flat. Hate when that happens spontaneously. No private garage would help, they called AAA and went to the local Wal-Mart.
When some claim that God could not exist because a loving God would never allow these kinds of horrible things to happen, I would counter that nobody could know anything is horrible or not were it not for a sense of morality. And, if morality is simply the product of human opinion (in a Godless Universe) then who can state with authority that one opinion is more viable than another?
Some cultures say "love they neighbor" and some say "eat thy neigbor". Absent some higher authority who can say one is wrong?
Finally, a loving God might just value free will above totalitarian control over the affairs of men. After all, those who freely choose to love are certainly more genuine than those who have been programmed to do so. But there is a risk when humans are allowed to decide for themselves and at times this is painfully evident.
Oh please, wake up people. These are not Christians. They are part of the agenda and process being used to demonize people that oppose obama. These monsters are employed by the left. Their sole job is too come out whenever an event like this happen and misrepresent a faith. They are simply doing what they were paid to do. Look at the clown wearing the Jewish flag. What is that? Their effort to tie in Israel on this is outright laughable. From now on, tell the world, these guys are liberal democrats working for the WH.
Thank you #26. While there were some abuses during the Crusades as there are in any and ALL wars, the Christians were justified in pushing back the invading Muslims. Don´t buy into leftist revisionism. Of course, no one is perfect and no war goes on without some atrocities, but that is human nature and not a reflection on the concept of Christianity. I cannot say the same for the invading Muslims, however, since their religion/political model is based on force, violence and murder as is outlined in their doctrines.
Let them show up; time everyone, not just the military, felt the pain so maybe they will be driven into the ground once and for all. CT is a blue state; let them be outrages and they already have a so-called assault weapon ban so guess you´ll check your guns when you cross their border so it will be a criminal magnet.
A memorial that pays tribute to the tens of thousands of brave men who lost their lives in bombing raids over wartime Germany has again been ranked by Trip Advisor as London´s top landmark in the run up to Christmas. The Bomber Command Memorial in Green Park has beaten the likes of Big Ben and Buckingham Palace to the number one spot on the travel review site. Visitors from all over the world come to pay their respects to the 55,573 young Bomber Command crews who lost their lives during the Second World War.
A top lawyer at the Internal Revenue Service told congressmen quizzing him over the tea party targeting scandal ´I don´t recall´ a ´staggering 80 times in fill or partial response to the committees questions´, a letter revealed today. [Snip] The stinging letter from House Oversight Committee chair Rep. Darrell Issa and regulatory subcommittee chair Rep. Jim Jordan, read: ´Your memory consistently failed when you were asked about information you shared with the Treasury Department´, adding his testimony ´suggests either a deliberate attempt to obfuscate your involvement in this matter or gross incompetence on your part.´
America is facing a wave of strikes by its fast-food workers on Thursday a day after Barack Obama warned that inequality in the USA had soared to the point that it now posed "a fundamental threat to the American dream". Low-paid workers in McDonalds, Kentucky Fried Chicken and other fast-food outlets in 100 cities across America were due to start rolling strikes to protest at the low level of America´s $7.25 (£4.45) federal minimum wage. The strikes are the latest part of a mushrooming publicity campaign for higher wages among those working so-called "McJobs", with fast-food restaurants seen as a
Mexican police have found a truck they suspect was stolen by common thieves while carrying a dangerous radioactive medical material that the United Nations said could provide an ingredient for a "dirty bomb". The truck was empty, but the radioactive material was found nearby, officials said. The truck was found on Wednesday close to where it was stolen outside Mexico City, said the official, who asked not to be identified in line with policy. The truck was stolen on Monday while it was taking cobalt-60 from a hospital in the northern city of Tijuana to a radioactive waste-storage centre, Mexican officials and the
The United Nations´ nuclear watchdog issued a warning on Wednesday after a truck carrying dangerous radioactive material that could be used in a dirty bomb was stolen in Mexico. The vehicle, carrying cobalt-60, a substance used for radiotherapy treatment to combat cancer, was stolen on Monday while transporting the load from a hospital in Tijuana to a radioactive waste storage centre. Mexican authorities were working to locate the material, which could not be used in a conventional nuclear weapon but could in theory be put in a dirty bomb--an explosive device which would spread the substance over a large area.
A World War Two bomber hero who met his radio telephone operator wife when she guided his plane back to safety has celebrated 70 years of marriage. Flt Lt Steve Stevens, 91, fell in love with the calming voice of Maureen Miller, who played a vital role in the legendary Dambusters raid during her career at the Women’s Auxiliary Air Force (WAAF). [Snip] Mr Stevens, who joined the RAF after his own family’s home was bombed, recalled: “It was the first time I had heard a girl’s voice from the tower, so I thought I would go up and have
President Obama´s uncle has testified at his deportation hearing that he housed his famous relative for a few weeks when he was student at Harvard Law School. This statement contradicts earlier claims by the White House, which says that Barack Obama has never met his controversial uncle Onyango Obama. The 69-year-old half-brother of the president´s late father will be allowed to remain in the United States after a hearing at a Massachusetts Immigration Court on Tuesday afternoon. After listening to witnesses praise the liquor store owner´s high moral character from his friends and landlord, the immigration judge ruled that he
President Obama will cast growing income inequality and a decline in economic mobility as a “fundamental threat to the American dream” during a speech Wednesday in Washington. The speech will serve as an early preview for next year’s State of the Union address, according to a White House official, who said Obama would focus much of his energy over the next three years on the issue. “The decisions we make over the next few years will determine whether or not our children will grow up in an America where, if you work hard, you can get ahead,” the official said.
Good stuff from Jonathan Turley at today’s House hearing on executive power, although I regret that I couldn’t find a more user-friendly format for you to watch. There’s no compilation clip; you’ll have to make do with the C-SPAN embed by fast-forwarding to the time cues I give you and being patient while the vid buffers (and buffers, and buffers).(Snip)That brings us to point two: Even if Congress can’t stop Obama, the courts can. The problem there, though, says Turley, is that O and the DOJ have argued successfully in many cases that no one has standing to sue him
Bill Clinton, the cliché goes, was the first black president, no matter his skin color. That being the case, Barack Obama is not the first black president, or the first African-American president, if you prefer, but the first hippie president. Clinton’s southern background and lifestyle were indeed more typically black, just as Obama’s was more typically hippie. And we’re not just talking about the “Choom gang” here, scarfing “Maui Wowie” on the sands of Oahu. We’re talking about all of it, the whole multi-culti-missing-white-mother-vanished-Kenyan-father-anti-imperialist-America-is-always-the-enemy-and-don’t-you-forget-it-nine-yards. And like most hippie culture as I knew and experienced it, it wasn’t about “peace and love.” Not
During a presentation at the White House in which President Barack Obama touted the benefits of the Affordable Care Act, the president declared that his signature health care reform law was not going to be repealed. This assertion led his administration members, his staff, and audience members to rise from their seats and give the president a standing ovation. Obama said that ACA opponents’ alternative to the health care reform law is to champion repeal and going back to the health care delivery system status quo ante. He specifically cited Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) who he said was asked directly for
A woman has revealed how difficult it is to eat healthily and stay full when living off an average food stamp budget. Melinda Moulton, from Huntington, Vermont, was one of 200 people to take part in the 3Squares Challenge, which saw her living for a week on just $36 worth of food, or around $1.71 a meal. Opting to try and eat as healthily as possible, Ms Moulton resorted to cheap foods like yogurt for breakfast, two handfuls of peanuts for lunch and lentil stew for dinner, all of which left her unsatisfied.´I don´t know how people do it,´ said
[Video] President Obama on Wednesday declared that addressing income inequality would be the focus of “all” of the White House’s efforts “for the rest of my presidency.” In a sweeping address that touched on raising the minimum wage, investing in infrastructure and ending tax breaks for the wealthy, Obama warned that the American economy has become “profoundly unequal,” declaring economic mobility the “challenge of our time.” “The combined trends of increasing inequality and decreasing mobility pose a fundamental threat to the American dream, our way of life, and what we stand for around the globe,” he said in an hour-long
Just over two weeks ago, MSNBC host Martin Bashir delivered a harsh piece of commentary that culminated in the suggestion that someone should “s-h-i-t” in former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin‘s (R-AK) mouth. Bashir offered an abject apology on his next broadcast, but a chorus of critics continued to demand action against the host. After a reported “vacation” for the host earlier this week, Bashir announced, Wednesday afternoon, that MSNBC and Martin Bashir are parting ways. Here’s the statement from Martin Bashir, via email: After making an on-air apology, I asked for permission to take some additional time out around the Thanksgiving holiday. Upon
