Firefighters and police support "Stand the Wall"
Posted 12/20/12 , edited 12/20/12


Yeah...first of all, I have no idea how you got any of that out of my post.

Secondly, I never stated that people are going to "stop them with public backlash." What I was trying to state was no matter how abhorrent or intolerant the reason may be, they have the right to protest. The government has no right to interfere, yet that does not protect them from public disagreement such as counter protesting or in this case, emergency personnel creating a wall between the WBC protestors and the people attending the funeral, which is also within their right. This obstructs no Freedom of Speech and I'm happy that they're doing it.

And yes, I guess I am "intolerant" in the sense that I cannot agree with such blatant disrespect for the death of these children and their loved ones, yet it is not within my right to stop them from doing so. Neither is it within anyone else.

This would have to be one of those times we all root for the bad guy, kind of like the movie Payback. You have people who live a criminal life but the way they carry themselves sometimes causes people to root for them. I think this is definitely one of those times.

I hate the WBC more than I dislike Anon and it's practices.

"Until we are all free, we are none of us free." -Emma Lazarus-

That includes mean-hearted, hateful douchebags who whore out their faith for negative attention by picketing the tragedy of others. I find it repulsive that the WBC does this, and even more so that they involve their children.

HOWEVER, I'm sure that those shameful excuses for Jesusites don't appreciate me bringing my son to the Atlanta Gay Pride Festival. I will teach my kid right from wrong and they can teach their kids whatever f*cked up version of morality they choose. It's the meaning of freedom.

(My kid and Boba Fett at the end of the parade route after the crowds thinned out.)

I'm sorry that I made the mistake of referring to things you said. Next time I'll make stuff up so that you can illegitimately cry out about not knowing how I referred to what you said.

Secondly, nobody is saying this isn't horrible and that they're awful people. You took my saying that they have the right to say what they want and responding with they shouldn't.

Next time you reply, perhaps you can counter what I was actually saying instead of taking it in a different direction. This isn't Fox News and you are not Bill O'Reilly.

Thanks.

What you did was misinterpret my post. I have no idea why you're being brash, but I responded to you appropriately. I neither insulted, nor disrespected you in any way.

What you did was misinterpret mine, mine was to comment on what you said. I'm not being brash, I'm being defensive.

I never insulted or disrespected you in any way.

Hugs?
