I think I just lost a significant amount of my intelligence after having read this.
Honestly, if they protest Jobs' funeral, I hope somebody finally snaps and really lets them have it. I'm just glad I'm too far away to end up in jail for what I would like to do.
Wow....what is wrong with those people? What good does picketing anyone's funeral do....it is only slightly more effective than prayer!
I love Steve Jobs.. but i can't even be mad about this. These people are just too stupid to get mad about. It's comical that people can be this idiotic.
This is not exactly news. It is Westboro people doing what they always do. The only thing about it that amazes me is how many people are still surprised by it. They obviously don't mind being hated by the "ungodly" so why continue giving them attention and publicity?
Steve Jobs created the iPhone, so he must be god. But then why picket? I dont understand its all so confusing.
Lets all go down and throw apples at them :)
I really don't understand why the courts didn't rule that the picketing of funerals by the Westboro Church isn't HARASSMENT. I'm all for free speech (though I have issues with free HATE speech) but to picket and make themselves be heard and seen with such vile words and signs, to me, is pure harassment. If they stood outside my apartment and did the same thing because they didn't like that I'm Native American, female, straight, have dogs...whatever...wouldn't that be harassment? What's the friggin' difference when it comes to these funerals? Free speech should come with limitations when it's hate speech and when it's perpetrated upon people who are doing absolutely nothing to the hater.
They are just a despicable group of people! I think it's a real shame they use they're 1st amendment rights to engage in this hate speech!
