I read in the 24 hours news this morning that the Westboro degenerates

are planning to come to Vancouver to protest at Cory Monteith's funeral just because he was supportive of gays! I just hope the Canadian Border Service Agents can send these effing degenerates back to where they belong.

A young guy died, no matter the circumstances and these fools are coming to BC to protest! Who are they and I hope their Church is not supported with tax payers dollars.

That is how I feel about these Westboro Church people, are they really Christians or just Christians with a different agenda?

Thanks for reading.

1. "are they really Christians or just Christians with a different agenda?" The answer is... Neither

They are hateful scam artists looking to make a buck at the expense of good people while spreading their vileness.

2. Thanks for your response. Why do they need to spread their hate though?

Hope they don't sue the Canadian Border Services for denying them entry into Canada. As you may know, Canada does not tolerate hate crimes.

I am not saying we are perfect. We have our own issues too!

5. Sorry to say, I know very little about Canada's laws or cross country suits

So I can't speak to that. As for a 'why' they do what they do... I just don't know that either. I can't fathom what would drive anyone to be so hate filled towards people they never met or who never had any impact on their lives.

8. Thank you. Our laws are a bit different from the US, which sometimes is good!

Not great though, as a person with a simple drug charge in the US shows up here in Canada and that person would be denied entry. As for the Westboro people, am sure the Border Service Agents are well aware of them and will deny them entry to Canada.

3. they have been threatening to show up at events lately but then haven't shown up. I'm wondering

what laws you have there to protect the funeral goers if Westboro does show. Would they need a demonstration permit? There might be some law that could trip them up and get them arrested. If not, can the city council pass a "no protesting funerals" rule quickly?

4. Thanks for responding. Most likely they will have propaganda material with them and

the Canadian Border Service Agents will deny them entry into Canada. Hope that hateful group does not even think to come here. Cory's death is a loss to Canadians and his fans, we do not need a hate group to come and protest at his funeral.

6. (1) WBC wants attention (2) Giving them attention reinforces their attention-whoring (3) They're big

on talk, and frequently don't show up where they say they will -- but they get attention anyway (4) Please try hard to ignore them

7. Thanks, I was just curious why the eff they wanted to come to Canada to protest a death.

I agree with you, they are looking for attention and will waste our Border Service Agents resources looking out for them as they will not be allowed into Canada! For that am glad.

9. They're a family of apocalyptic cultists, dressed up as a church

They're led by a man so consumed with hate that it sucks the life out of everyone and everything around him.

He's a vacuum of negative energy... A vampiric presence.

The face of evil and hatred.

10. Thanks for that information. But is it a family or a cult of followers?

What I cannot understand is how it is a Church but goes against Christian values. Why is that Church getting tax payers dollars?

11. The church's members are all made of members of the Phelps family

According to the 1st Amendment, everyone has freedom of religion... Their religion is based on a doctrine of hatred and bigotry.

They have as much in common with Christ as food has with poison.

This is America, my friend... With "churches," that's how we roll.
