Threats like that, against a member of this forum, remind me of that one psychopath that was arrested years ago. He got riled by someone on-line, made a road trip to the guys home and burned it to the ground. Luckily the man got out of his house trailer alive.
(Not that the IP logging can help authorities find such people. Noooo.
The Phelps family comprise the majority of the church membership.
This psychotic crew of Christ clowns made an appearance near my hometown a few years ago. Spitting as they slurred Veterans, cussing America and god. This during a straight fallen soldiers funeral, so that his wife and family had to hear the "God hates fag's!" drivel from across the street where this bunch of idiots had obtained a city permit to congregate.
So, this little old Veteran walking with a cane and in full dress uniform starts walking from his car toward the church. And he just happened to park in the Handicapped parking which was adjacent to the Phelps screamers. As he passed old dog Phelps himself steps right in front of the little gentleman and starts his god hates rhetoric. To which the little old fella hauled back with a text book right hook and nail's Fred square in the face. Knocking him cold as a fish.
The little old man turns and walks away, never saying a word. While the cop's watching the whole thing smiled slightly and then just happened to be distracted by the rest of the Phelps clan who, after falling silent as the tomb right after the hit, started their screaming once more.
It was a sight to behold. Cold Fred!
Edit to add: Gotta love the Phelps clan giving advance notice of their picket schedule
. I don't agree they should be ignored. I think they should be countered. Putting up white sheets so they're obscured from the mourners entering a house of worship or funeral home. Playing music loud enough to drown out their hateful rhetoric as they literally spit at mourners and attempt to get into fights so they can then sue for injuries and thereby continue their psycho's for Christ road trips.
They're entitled to free speech however I think people grieving the loss of loved one's are entitled to peace of mind. Give them a permit in the sticks somewhere, so they can scream to the cows. Not so they can scream on church property or a lot nearby.
