Update about the Westboro Church

Incredibly, this so-called Westboro "Church", a anti-gay, anti-anything that suits their tastes group of inciteful haters issued another statement about the shooter in the Tucson massacre, including a video.

The Westboro Baptist church in Kansas praised Jared Lee Loughner for killing six people and wounding 14 others, including pro-gay US congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords reports The Guardian.

The church has gained notoriety for disrupting funerals of soldiers and people who have died of AIDS, among other things. It claims the deaths are a punishment for society’s tolerance of homosexuality.

The church founder, Fred Phelps, posted a video in which he said: 

     “Thank God for the violent shooter, one of your soldier heroes in Tucson – Westboro Baptist church will picket their funerals.”

What is happening in this country and how far are we going to let these people go? This sort of statement should be considered a terrorist threat and this guy and his group throw in jail and sent to V.P. Cheney's House for a little waterboarding or somethnig. Whatever the answer may be, it can't continue. The right to Freedom of Speech under which this group is supposedly hiding behind was NOT intended to protect people from doing and acting like they do at the funerals of little girls killed by some crazed gunman who had nothing to do with anti-gay organizations.
