48. So.
Your actual knowlege of Phelps and Co is all what the media reports. And I disagree that most religious folk share policy with Phelps. You think Phelps is just 'opposed to gay marriage'? Tip of the iceberg, what the media shows you at home, safe at home.
And so you opposed disrupting hearings in any way, but you offer no alternatives at all. That is now said and done.
And back to characterizing others instead of reporting honestly. You claim Code Pink's mission has noting to do with finances. Here is the opening line of Code Pink's mission statement, in the words of Code Pink:
"Mission Statement:
CODEPINK is a women-initiated grassroots peace and social justice movement working to end the war in Iraq, stop new wars, and redirect our resources into healthcare, education and other life-affirming activities."

Redirect our resorces. That means finacial resources among others. Stop new wars. Nations in huge debt historically have often gone to war to get out of that hole. It is common for such things to happen. Financial irresponsibility can lead us into war, and away from healthcare and education. That is their mission, according to them. Seems to include more than your characterization of their mission as 'ending the war'.
So their mission as they see it is not as you claim it is. An honest broker does not need to speak for others, as you do in rewriting Code Pink's mission.
So. No real world experience, no ideas for alternatives, a dishonest reporting of Code Pink's Mission worded to support your argument. So your 'opinion' of Code Pink is not based on the facts of Code Pink. Makes it moot at best. They say such hearings are well within their mission, and I agree.
