Today I was doing something online, (I really don't remember how it started i think from here) and I saw something about god hating shrimp. I thought that was pretty funny so I went to the website just for fun.  It pokes fun at extremists by saying "why stop at protesting gays? shellfish is a sin too!!!" It is just a joke website with a bit of a message about how ridiculous extremists can be. 

As I look into the website a little I found one called Godhatesfags.com. Again, I thought it was a joke website. Its not. I first thought this because it seems kinda silly right? To say something that offensive and uneducated. And on it was a little box with a label stating: # of people that god has sent to hell since you have been on this website. This really seemed rediculous to me so I started looking for a place where it would say that it is a joke website. It never did.

 

So I guess its real? Is it? I did not look too closely because I really don't want to be right. When I started thinking it might be real, I was not thinking about how ridiculous it is and how weird extremists are. Th e message of pure hate that the WBC is sending out made me almost want to cry. I am an atheist and therefore 'dammed to hell' and when people tell me that I am likely to engage in a debate but reading this, I could not feel any other feeling of disappointment. Disappointment within people.

Does anyone else feel this way? I just want to see your reactions to this, and want to know what you think.

Exactly! No one's trying to prevent the WBC from stating their beliefs, they're just preventing them from verbally harassing people at a funeral. No one says anything about free speech when someone in a workplace makes lewd and inappropriate comments to a co-worker and is fired for sexual harassment.  Or when someone is escorted out of a concert hall or movie theatre for being too loud.  Or when a teacher is fired for swearing at their students. People are allowed to say whatever they want, but not necessarily wherever they want: there are times and places where certain speech is inappropriate and using it gets you into trouble, and making a funeral one of them doesn't violate anyone's civil rights. Being allowed to SAY whatever you want and being allowed to DO whatever you want aren't the same thing.
I pity the fool who has any sympathy for these people, even the children are taught to preach this message, and while I do pity the children, they are the scum of our society, that which has no place in a infinitely growing culture and country. Regrettably,  most of them are lawyers... they enrage me every time they protest a funeral, especially a child's. The only reason that they are tolerated is because they are following the rules... quite pitiful really, I'd imagine it as a cancer to our society.
