  • Are they not opponents of gay marriage? Is it an inaccurate depiction?

    Even if others who oppose gay marriage don't exactly look or act like the assholes from WBC, the reasoning behind their opposition in the same.

    I remember watching a documentary about the WBC once where a person while stopped in their car at a traffic light next to the church protestors said something along the lines of, "You know, I don't agree with gay marriage either, but what you people are doing is just wrong." I have to give WBC credit for one thing at least, they're honest about their hatred and why they oppose gay rights, unlike that hypocrite in his vehicle in that documentary.

    Provoked or not, puncher guy never should have punched. Though trust me, I'm not taking the side of Fox News on this. Protestors should know better by now not to get violent. Any action of violence is always used against them in an effort to demonize the entire protest.

    They should know this. The results from peaceful and non-peaceful protests in the past should have proven that. It's frustrating to see that kind of stuff happen.

    Many of the people who oppose the WBC only started doing so after the WBC began protesting soldier's funerals. When they restricted themselves to protesting gay peoples' funerals, there were no patriot guard riders, no massive counter-protests, and plenty of talk from ITGs about how they "may" disagree with their speech but would defend their right to do it to the death.

    well...

    Oh trust me, I'm well aware of this. I remember when a gay friend of mine reacted kindly to those rough looking veterans on motorcycles joining the protest against WBC at funerals and my response was basically, "And where were the motorcycle guys at all those gay funerals the church was protesting?"
  • When they find someone holding a sign with a logical argument against same-sex marriage, I'm sure they'll use that one.

    Way back when MA legalized gay marriage, the cameras focused on some fat middle aged woman with a south shore accent who ripped up her marriage license because of them queers.

    I always wondered what happened to her marriage.

    Obviously it was destroyed. The queers, you know.

    Me neither.

    well...



    No shiat. Most are just good a keeping it under wraps. Down here where I live, it is magnificent. It's amazing the amount of people I converse with or "debate" who try to muster up some reasoned argument against homosexuals with respect to personal rights...and usually that doesn't happen - they just try to say they are arguing something else entirely (like how they tried to make chick-fil-a a freedom of speech thing). They act polite enough most of the time but their true colors come out if you talk/"debate" with them long enough. I've actually had people tell me that it pisses them off how much gay people have to make a "big deal" about being gay. The examples they gave were pretty much what any normal couple does in public. They said didn't want to explain to their kids why two grown men were holding hands or giving each other an affectionate hug (I've literally been told this by people I know).
  • watching our local apologists reply to this thread is going to be fascinating.

    good headline btw.

    I disagree. Instead we should reform the justice system where if 8 out of 12 jurors think hitting the guy was justified you are acquitted of all charges. If people thought they were going to get decked for being douches they might think twice before intentionally provoking people.
  • In other words:

    Our Fox News assholes aren't like those Westboro Church assholes. There's a difference.
  • Wait, so you CAN'T be bigoted on multiple fronts all in one fell swoop?

    /fark, I've been doing it wrong all along
    //seriously though, people still don't watch fox news for it's comedy?

    A solid point.

    Though there is some part of me that thinks some problems might start to dissolve if people who had a good punching coming to them finally got one. Seems like there's a shortage of justified punchings these days.

    Price of civilization.

    Yea, he threw a good sucker punch. Fkr needed to have his ass kicked for that one.
  • The difference, subby? Fox uses coverage of actual union members acting out violently. The WBC is a cult that acts completely on their own and the Christian community dismisses them as kooks. The only leader from the union I've seen talk about the violence from his members said that he doesn't condone it but then turned around and blamed it on the victims. Presumably because they were wearing short skirts and were asking for it.
