  • I will tell you, I am a Baptist....and that is sickening,

    Those signs were horrible and that poor little kid holding one.....THAT IS NOT the type of religion I have learned and loved my whole life!

  • Ugh. I want to vomit every time I hear about them.

    The fact that there are always small children there with them....makes me want to hurt somebody. Namely, their parents.

  • Do you suppose it's strategic for them to use their children in that way? To prevent harm from happening to them?

  • That is sick and wrong. As parents how can you teach your children to do such things?

  • I really dislike those people. They're not teaching anyone anything but how to hate.

  • Once I heard they were picketing the funerals of fallen soldiers, intruding on the family's grief in a particularly ugly way, there is nothing these freaks could do that would surprise me. They are a prime example of just how ugly hate can be.

  • They do that regularly, pagan mama. I think MOST of their signs say either "God hates Fags" or "God hates soldiers".

    It really is nauseating.

  • It's to the point now, where I wonder how much of this is really for beliefs sake. They seem to be more concerned with the attention that they get, rather than actually spreading any kind of real message about God.

  • There is a special place in hell reserved for people like that.
