Outrage as Westboro Baptist plans praise
gathering outside Sandy Hook Elementary
school to celebrate God ´executing his
judgement´ in horrific shooting rampage
that killed 20 children and 6 adults

Daily Mail [UK], by Leslie Larson

The tight-knit community of Newtown, Connecticut is numb in the aftermath of the heart-wrenching massacre at the Sandy Hook Elementary school on Friday when a gunman killed 20 young students, all aged six and seven, in addition to six adults. As families mourn the lives that were cut short in this unspeakable horror, an extremist group has announced they plan to congregate at the scene of the tragedy and offer praise to God for ´executing his judgement´--an unthinkable act amidst the sorrow overwhelming the quiet town. A member from the Westboro Baptist Church, an unaffiliated religious group that self-identifies as

These are sadistic, mentally ill people. The law is completely unable to deal with their madness, and they are in fact emboldened by that knowledge. The only thing that will stop them is righteous violence. May it be done.

No, let them show up.

And ask the Patriot Guard to stand down.

It´s time these *ss-hats see what true rage is, up close and personal.

I´m pretty sure everyone will ´see nothing´ and the police will be way too busy directing traffic to respond any time soon.

People who bastardize the Christian faith (think Crusades) have always been exploited by non-Christians and Leftists to represent the true Christian faith, sollowers of which would never do nor say such things as the Westboro BC is doing and saying. They are hate freaks and there is no way they could possibly know what "God´s judment" is or isn´t.

Atheists believe they can use this hate group to smear real Christians but it won´t work because the real Christians will rise up against them.

As to why an all-powerful, all-good God would permit such evils as this latest one, the Holocaust, the Armenian slaughters and other ethnic cleansing outrages, as well as why He would permit such corruption and evil in American politics today, that is a question only God will answer in His own good timing.

None of us may be around to find out but justice WILL be done and God´s purposes WILL come to pass at some point.

The moment we begin asking God why He allows something to happen, we have admitted we do not know His character and we do not personally know Him.

These lunatics simply do not know the Bible. They carried a sign recently that said, "God hates sinners", do they not know that God´s son, Jesus Christ died for sinners!. God hates the sin, but loves the sinner and offered a way to overcome. I cringe whenever the Westboro church is mentioned, the Baptist Convention should sue to have the name "Baptist" taken away from such a hate group.

The Patriot Guard won´t stop anything, that´a not our charter. We provide a shield of members and flags to protect the families from idiots like Westboro, but we do not interact with them as that would actually be counter-productive.

I never supported the Hell´s Angels in the Altamont concert "security" thing for the Stones, but I think maybe it´s time for the Guard to stand down and let the Angels provide for these families, they have no compunction to avoid "confrontation".

Fred Phelps is an attorney. He provokes in hopes of being assaulted so that he can extort a settlement from his victims and fund his hate filled enterprise. Of course the theoretical limit of that business model is that he must survive the initial confrontation.

So far he has chosen his targets with due consideration to his long-term survival, after all, he cancelled that West Virginia adventure after considering how many abandoned coal mines would be convenient graves. He might want to re-think this little road trip as well.

The price of defending your own is defending theirs.

If we are to be allowed to insult Islam we must, in turn allow Christianity to be maligned.

Perhaps the Patriot Guard can contract out security to Hell´s Angels for these funerals.

When those Westbro freaks came to nearby McAlester OK, oh oopppsy, their van tires went flat. Hate when that happens spontaneously. No private garage would help, they called AAA and went to the local Wal-Mart.

#4,

When some claim that God could not exist because a loving God would never allow these kinds of horrible things to happen, I would counter that nobody could know anything is horrible or not were it not for a sense of morality. And, if morality is simply the product of human opinion (in a Godless Universe) then who can state with authority that one opinion is more viable than another?

Some cultures say "love they neighbor" and some say "eat thy neigbor". Absent some higher authority who can say one is wrong?

Finally, a loving God might just value free will above totalitarian control over the affairs of men. After all, those who freely choose to love are certainly more genuine than those who have been programmed to do so. But there is a risk when humans are allowed to decide for themselves and at times this is painfully evident.

Their sole job is too come out whenever an event like this happen and misrepresent a faith. They are simply doing what they were paid to do. Look at the clown wearing the Jewish flag. What is that?

Thank you #26. While there were some abuses during the Crusades as there are in any and ALL wars, the Christians were justified in pushing back the invading Muslims. Don´t buy into leftist revisionism. Of course, no one is perfect and no war goes on without some atrocities, but that is human nature and not a reflection on the concept of Christianity. I cannot say the same for the invading Muslims, however, since their religion/political model is based on force, violence and murder as is outlined in their doctrines.

Let them show up; time everyone, not just the military, felt the pain so maybe they will be driven into the ground once and for all. CT is a blue state; let them be outrages and they already have a so-called assault weapon ban so guess you´ll check your guns when you cross their border so it will be a criminal magnet.

For a man who is new to the job, the Ukrainian prime minister, Arseniy Yatsenyuk, is pretty impressive. Indeed, his performance would be stunning by the standards of any long-serving national leader. Responding to the refusal of Russia’s foreign minister to enter into any direct talks with his country, and the less than thrilling response to this obduracy by the western powers, Mr Yatsenyuk’s spontaneous exasperation was pitch perfect: “What’s happened?

As Europe’s leading power, a global economic titan, and a nation that has sought since 1945 to set an example of peace and democracy, Germany ought to be at the forefront of demands for sanctions to be imposed on Russia after its outrageous behaviour in Ukraine. But it has signally failed to discharge its moral duty towards Europe. The main reason is self-interest because the German economy is massively dependent on Russia. Not only is Russia one of the main markets for its exports, but its industry and homes rely so heavily on the country’s gas and oil. What’s more,

However, there were reports Vietnamese air force planes have spotted a 14-mile long oil slick 120 miles off the coast of Cape Ca Mau - the most southerly point of Vietnam´s mainland. "We have no information on the location of the aircraft," said Malaysia Airlines in a statement. "We are currently working with international authorities on the search and rescue mission."

Airline officials admitted they were gravely concerned for the safety of the aircraft. It was not immediately known which nationalities were on board the jet which was flying on a popular route.

´Russian television news is reporting…” Nowadays, when I hear those words pronounced on the BBC or ITN, I can’t help but wince. Over the past 10 days, Russian television news has reported, among other things, that 675,000 Ukrainian refugees have flooded over the Russian border; that extremists and neo-Nazi militants have illegally taken over the Ukrainian government in Kiev; and that Crimean “self-defence forces” or “pro-Russian forces” have spontaneously gathered in front of the Crimean parliament in order to defend it from those same Nazis. Each of these statements is a lie: there are no refugees flooding into Russia.

The Ukraine crisis took a dramatic turn last night when Russian troops stormed a key command post in Crimea. While no shots were fired, it is the first time the Russians have used force to increase their grip on the disputed peninsula. The act of aggression took place in the strategic port of Sevastopol, home of Russia´s Black Sea fleet, which includes 24 warships, two submarines and 16,000 sailors and marines. Tensions were already high yesterday when a U.S. warship arrived in the Black Sea. The arrival of the guided missile destroyer USS Truxtun was officially described as ‘routine’ by Washington.

During his speech to the CPAC crowd on Thursday, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) facetiously recalled “Presidents” Bob Dole, John McCain and Mitt Romney to make a point about how Republicans need to “stand for principle” in order to win big elections. Today, Sen. McCain fired back at Cruz during an appearance on MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell Reports. McCain said he spoke to Cruz about the comments and it was “cordial” but he took specific offense at the remarks concerning Dole. “He can say what he wants to about me and he can say anything he wants to about Mitt,” McCain said,

Via Matt Lewis, here’s Maverick once again demonstrating that “cordial relationship” in politico-speak means “two people who can’t publicly admit to hating each other but obviously do.” And it’s a cheap shot. Cruz’s point yesterday at CPAC was that Dole, McCain, and Romney lost because they weren’t conservative enough. That’s not because they’re gutless — he said specifically that they were “good” and “decent” men — but because they’re not committed, full-throated ideologues, even less so when they’re fighting for purple states in a national election. We can debate whether that’s true but there’s nothing offensive in raising the subject.

House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) apologized Thursday to his committee´s ranking Democratic member for cutting off his microphone at the end of a hearing Wednesday, according to a local report.

What’s been said of confession — that it is good for one’s soul but bad for one’s reputation — can also be true of testifying to Congress, so Lois Lerner has chosen to stay silent. Hers, however, is an eloquent silence. The most intrusive and potentially most punitive federal agency has been politicized; the IRS has become an appendage of Barack Obama’s party. Furthermore, congruent with exhortations from some congressional Democrats, it is intensifying its efforts to suffocate groups critical of progressives, by delaying what once was the swift, routine granting of tax-exempt status. So, the IRS, far from repenting

One of the most seismic changes in American politics over the last decade has been the emergence of a sharp generational split among the electorate. The Democratic Party owes its success in the last two presidential elections almost entirely to overwhelming support among the very young, which has overcome continued conservatism among older voters. The Pew Research Institute has dominated the field of exploring the ideological cleavages among different generations. And its latest survey shows again how the liberalism of the youngest voting cohort, millennials, remains firm, and likely to continue to recast the electorate. A few charts from the survey

Sarah Palin, the tea-party-darling former Alaska governor who ran for vice president in 2008, is leaving the door open for a president run in 2016. ´It depends on what it is that Americans really, really want in a candidate,´ Palin said Friday night. ´If they want a fighter, if they want someone who can so respect our exceptionalism, everything that makes America great, the promise of America. And if we don´t find that, then I would run.´ [Snip] Asked who her favorite presidential hopefuls are so far, she singled out Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul while

Barack Obama´s parents were "married in name only," according to David Maraniss´s 2012 Barack Obama: The Story. But since definitions of an "in name only" marriage vary, such as "a marriage of convenience" or "a sexless marriage," and Maraniss failed to explain his claim, it is unclear what he was implying. Therefore, Obama´s oft-told nativity story must be searched for the full implications of Obama´s parents´ "in name only" marriage. (snip) So when did Ann´s and Obama Sr.´s "whatever happened happened fast" wedding happen? For no apparent reason, confusion abounds among Obama´s biographers over the wedding date:

The White House said the US president told his Russian counterpart that Russia’s actions were a violation of Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity. During the hour-long phone call, President Obama urged Russian forces to return to their bases. The White House said it hoped the crisis could be settled diplomatically and urged the Russian and Ukrainian governments to hold direct talks in an effort to find a settlement. The President called for an agreement which would protect the interests of both Ukrainians and ethnic Russians living in Ukraine. This was the second phone call between the two leaders in a

When Rachel Canning was a 15-year-old freshman she got so drunk on vodka at Jon Inglesino’s home that she was sick all over the sidewalk and into a garbage can after her dad Sean picked her up for a basketball game. And according to the Canning family, Inglesino’s wife Amy gave Rachel and her friends wine coolers in the back of a limo

Disbelieving family and friends of an ex-Navy SEAL who died of an apparent drugs overdose on the ship made famous in the movie Captain Phillips are convinced of a ´cover-up´ and have called for a US investigation into his death, MailOnline can reveal today. The body of Mark Kennedy, a super fit, highly-decorated member of the elite fighting force, was found inside a cabin on the cargo ship Maersk Alabama - the vessel involved in a 2009 hijacking that ended with Somali pirates shot dead by SEALs. Another former SEAL, Jeffrey Reynolds, was found alongside him, also dead from a suspected drug

KINGSTON - More than 150 years after European colonial powers abolished slavery, a coalition of Caribbean nations is considering legal action to seek a formal apology and monetary compensation. Caribbean leaders meeting next week in St. Vincent are expected to study a broad legal outline for the reparations claim prepared by a British law firm. The subject of reparations has simmered in the Caribbean for many years and opinions are divided. Some see reparations as delayed justice, while others see it as an empty claim and a distraction from modern social problems in Caribbean societies. Slavery ended throughout the Caribbean
