    ok, i know this doesnt apply to ALL christians, but these few people that do shit like this definitely ruins the name of a lot of good honest christian people. kinda like the whole ricer/street racer vs. real racer/car enthusiast. this is the article in my school newspaper today.

    I think they're horrible people - but they have right to protest whatever they want.

    People should get together and picket the picketers.

    shouldn't the families have the right to bury their dead in peace? sure people have the right to protest, even if its completely wrong and apauling, but i think both time and distance restrictions should be in order.

    Everything evil has to happen once. There is now a larger group of people, armed with the law and legislation who are out to make sure this never happens again.

    Compare and Contrast that to other nations of the world, where shit like this goes on for a long time (Centuries if you're female)

    The US does a good job of keeping shitbags in line without trouncing on the rights of everyone. I said "good" job, not Excellent.

    I am also working on a theory wherein the extend of the US Government's homeland spying project begins and ends with Myspace.com.

    Most definitely, they do. I wasn't saying they don't.

    "Restrictions" should never be in order. Ever.

    "Rational Thought" should be in order. And the only way to get that is to completely overturn everything cultural about this world. If you wanna get started on it, I've been workign on it for years. I'll give you my notes.

    Well there ya go. People publish shit on Myspace that they would FREAK about anyone getting through other methods.

    All you need to is start a website that says "Tell us about yourself" and BAM you know all you need to know. Volunteered.

    Abandon your Myspace accounts. It's part of the cultural ridiculousness that's eating away Freedom from the inside out.

    C'mon, even YOU aren't that much of a conservative that you'd believe that!

    holy fuck [​IMG]

    my uncle died in afghanistan as a bunch of you already know
    all i have to say is if some fuckwads showed up to protest at my uncles funeral i would have done everything in my power to fuck up every asshole there.... i dont even give a fuck if i got in trouble for it... there are things called respect and honor... apparently these fuckers dont have a clue about either

    absolutely no fucking excuse for that shit
    and i dont give a fuck about their rights to protest or whatever the fuck else
    if they have a right to protest a funeral then i should have a right to tear gas the fuck out of them and spray the whole group of assbags with belt fed bean bags and or rubber bullets

    Here's the thing. These people call themselves christian's or are labeled as such by the media or by others.

    Because they are doing what they're doing in the name of "God" they're automatically christians in most people's eyes.

    However, just like those who burn down churches, just like those who bomb abortion clinics, etc. Those are no christian actions. Christianity, at least in my eyes, is mean to be used as a tool for teaching the right decisions and the right actions.

    People who kill, people who protest funerals, or do anything else like that and claim it is in the name of "God" are a complete joke. They are not christian extremists. They're ignorant assholes. And they are the problem with religion.

    When did I equate rational thought to christians there ?

    I said that Restrictions should never be the solution. I then went on to say that Rational Thought should be the solution. Whereas Christianity's double standards and finer nuances of intolerance haven't taken hold of me, I see that Rational Thought hasn't taken hold of you. :)

    I also believe I mentioned earlier something that everyone should be able to wrap their hands around - Extremes of any culture tend to be bad, and when they use their religion as a weapon instead of an idea nothing but bad happens. I've always said that.

    The main tie right now with Christ / Conservatives is that Conservatives can't believe that Christianity and Catholicism get shit on so frequently, and when any attempt to defend it is brought forth the immediate counter-reaction is to "Shut up". It's the same thing when White people feel that life is unfair. Jews retaliate against Palestinians when an 11 year old throws a rock at a guard with a barrage of missile fire, Muslims destroy buildings and take hostages when a cartoon is published - People laugh and don't take it seriously. Here we see a group of christians behaving badly and two things have happened:

    1) It's shaken some of you to the core.

    2) The Conservative bridge is raised to somehow villify me or other Conservatives as having been there to back up their protest.

    It simply shouldn't go down that way.

    would never happen anyway. for the same reason i cant scream fire in a crowded movie theater. theres free speech and then shit you just dont say or do. and im with E_SolSi, lets just fuck them up.

    i have a theory for these extremists though. they are from a red state, ignorant people. therefore not capable of elaborating on the bible and must see it as exactly as its written.
