    Sarah, please post your thoughts more often if you have the time. I enjoy your thought provoking submissions that clearly add value to the reading experience.

    The assumption in this article is that this group feeds off attention.... I don't know the authors beliefs or experience with religious fanaticism... but I would hope he would understand that attention is not at all the goal, and it's an awfully poor assumption to make.

    Although, yes, arguing with a fool is fruitless, ignoring such bullying behavior is irresponsible as a citizen. What we should do is what many have done, gathered in peaceful protection (rather than protest) of the funeral, vigil, whatever being picketed. Form a human line to keep them away from the mourners who are in too much emotional pain to deal with such senseless and brutal hatred.

    Serve and protect. Be a neighbor. Don't ignore a bully, and certainly don't ignore one who thinks they are righteously doing God's good work, because those are the type that never stop.

    Mr Hardin stated...Drop in and let me know what you think!

    I thought it was a waste of time and not worth the click to view.

    Where in Christianity is hate-mongering an involved practice? What are Fred Phelps and the WBC afraid of anyhow? Rainbows? Unicorns? A flaming pink queer apocalypse? I attempted to address this with a portrait of the good reverend on my artist’s blog at http://dregstudiosart.blogspot.com/2011/03/fred-phelps-and-westboro-baptist-church.html Drop in and let me know what you think!

    This article would not have been written if the suggested solution was serious.

    This groups is so off base it did not deserve one second of thought.
