That is madness. The man employed no retainers, though it would've suited him well. He does now, of course, for he is feeble and mindless and must be taken care of like a dog or invalid.

I have a smattering of French blood, due to my great-great-great-grandfather's long service in France. I am indeed sadly descended from a slightly interethnic line (3/32 non-Rusyn, of which 1/32 was the result of this French tryst), though admittedly a morganatic, high-class one (the lady was the Countess de Joigny).

Well according to the New Testament they're not Christians because they're against the idea of sending missionaries.

There's a whole slew of reasons why they'd hate me:

1. I'm not a Baptist..
2. I'm a veteran, and so therefore represented and defended the US of Fags (as they would likely say)
3. I would in fact defend homosexuals, lesbians and the what-not
4. Even though I am Christian, I hate Dominionist Theology and actively oppose the imposition of Christian (or any other for that matter) religious moral enforcement into the civil law.
5. I'm not a Dispensationalist
6. I do not subscribe to the Young-Earth Creation Theology
7. More importantly, I accept perfectly Evolutionary theory within the context of the theological framework of Evolutionary Creationism
8. I would hold a civil conversation with someone who wasn't Christian, or was gay or what-not

I could probably think of more, given more time.
Such heroic nonsense!

Except their isn't. Stop getting your knickers in a twist, and WBC just trolled OP hard. Ignore them like anything else that offends you, and stop being so sensitive. They're cretins, but they're also protected by something called the "First Amendment", which makes their speech legitimised.

I would love to support them, as I think that with their actions they make an important point about the way free speech works. It's a dangerous concept, yet America embodies it like pretty much no other country in the world. It's only natural that opponents of such things stand up - Maybe not quite as drastically as the WBC, but they do make a very valid point.

Where to draw the line? They offer, in themselves, the best example for this omnipresent question when discussing civil liberties. Many people are just trying to get their head out of being controlled by a greater force, and attempt to accomplish that by supporting an increase in civil liberties. While this in itself is not a particularly bad thing, it's very egocentric and stubborn, and encourages abuse of those rights -the possibility of which the WBC is dedicated to point out.

Just a thing to consider before you hate on them.

I've got news for you. Don't take something that was written two millennia ago about some dude that was born without a (human) father too literally. You don't believe the bible, you believe in it's teachings. Or not, depending on your faith/absence thereof.


I'm a naturalistic atheist. That being said, the bible says what the bible says, and you either believe what it says or you don't. Kinda sorta but not really believing in a passage is nonsensical. If you think the bible is a convenient metaphor, then say that. But then don't turn around and say you believe in the bible.

And you have obviously skipped a whole lot, too. The part about "Love thy next" and all that, which is pretty much the underlying message, except for that it's stated plainly in like chapter five (or book five, or whatever). Now I'd like to know some more about that pretty horrendous shit.

They came to my home-town once to picket gay marriage, 'some people' tossed rotten garbage and a bunch of water-balloons at them; mind you it was cold. Police did not catch the assailant...I respect their right to free speech, and did not toss things at them because I wanted to suppress that right; I did it because I found what they were saying insulting. And I was not the only one, you come into a quite city and start screaming rudely you are bound to get something tossed at you.

...I mean, tossed what at who?

EDIT: It was heartwarming though to see the community rally against these protesters. It seemed as if the whole state did not want them here and put a big smile on my face. From NH
