1. Eventually, they were going to pick the wrong funeral

This might just be it. Whatever results in their elimination by any means, and "nobody didn't see nuthin'" is fine by me.

but if these folks feel anything like I felt when Ron Santo passed on, I can tell you there will be blood, maybe even to the point where there will not be any church members left to sue anyone.

7. If there is even one left

there will be lawsuits for years over it. The people from that group LOVES to sue, and know the law quite well when it comes to what they may and may not do legally, and what others may or may not do legally regarding their protests.

I hear ya, but Penn ST is already in a world of shit here. Their trustees are
Toast, they are prolly gonna get sued down to their last dime, their recruiting is done, and their name is tarnished. That beotch that also is their inbred lawyer just loves sticking it to the beaters and this assbackward court system will bend over backward to seem fair and give it to them even though they deserve to have every buckass tooth knocked out of their shit spraying mouths.....

22. go find the movie "Most hated family in America". It is a real eye opener. They believe everyone

no matter who you are, even if you were St. Francis deserves to die because the old man convinced them that all humans are evil and deserve to die so they celebrate the death of everyone. They are incredibly brainwashed. They will even dump their own kids flat. Sad group of psychos. Many are leaving and when the old fester dies it will be the moment. Interestingly enough, a guy who went to make a film of them converted and married one. He's such a pompous ass wipe, I among all of them but the old man hate him most. He's a jackass.

15. Here's the thing, these constant postings about Joe Paterno...

are not only unnecessary, but reflect something entirely different on the poster, than mere interest in preserving the well-being of children. It's an entirely different thing that's going through their minds.

and I'm entitled to say what I said, that your original post has less to do with the well-being of children, than something else entirely different.

26. I guess I feel baseless claims are best left to other sites.

 

However, I am glad to know that you know me so well. I wish I could so easily lump people together and judge them all (i.e. people who take their spouse's last name, people who choose to have children, people who oppose what Paterno did, etc.).

28. Rather than accuse me of a baseless claim, it might be nice to hear

just how interested you are in the well-being of children (since you are clearly VERY interested in the well-being of children), as well as what you do in your life to ensure the well-being of children. You might impress me and many others.

That said, even if I didn't, I am still entitled to express outrage at what Paterno failed to do. However, I am curious what you think someone else's agenda is in speaking out against Paterno.

23. Constant postings ... umm, the guy died today.

On one hand, he had a remarkable career as a college football coach. Helped lots of people in that capacity.

And yet, as we learned recently, a member of his staff appears to have done some incredibly horrible things.

And the unanswered question (which may never be fully answered now) is what did Paterno know, and should he have done more based on what he knew.

Now that he has died, apparently, the whack jobs from Westboro plan to try and use his funeral and the large controversy for their own insane purposes. Which does nothing to help uncover the truth.

But no one on DU should discuss it?

I saw a couple OPs about Paterno dying ... and only one that I saw that mentioned the Westboro whack jobs, was this one.

I'd not heard that those nut jobs were planning to go, but it does not surprise me much.

27. your constant defense of this indefensible man under the auspices of whatever and it changes

each time tells me a lot about you. Really, we get it that you lurve you some Joe Pa but your opinion is just that, an opinion. The OP just so you know said that the Westboros will be protesting his funeral like everyone else they decide deserves their presence. He said that he doesn't care, probably for the first time that this is happening because he finds Joe Pa disgusting. That you would impugn that he is staying Joe paterno is a pedophile tells alot about you. You see? That sorry thing works both ways.

30. Honestly, I hate football. Thank God my bf isn't a fan of it either.

I had no clue who the heck Joe Paterno was before this scandal broke out. However, after it broke out I began to read and observe, and the reactions of certain people were completely off the frikkin' charts, which led me to wonder about those reactions.

34. perhaps but this is a list with 200K people. some of them were those kids in their own lives. some a

are in law and law enforcement and they know and post what happens and how it falls out with pedos and their enablers. Some of them like us are members of the teaching community who had a legal obligation to report and know because he didn't that he is culpable for not doing it. That makes him worse. We deal with the kids of this kind of thing and see what it actually does to them. One of my last juries before I retired I had to recuse myself because the victim was in my class and she was molested by a preacher.

Believe me when I tell you, Paterno is culpable for not doing the reporting right. He has known since 1996 or so that sandusky liked sex with little kids. He's a bigger weasal than Sandusky who is sick in the head because he reasoned that it might hurt his myth and his money and therefore he did nothing.

I'm not a fan of football either. Not since LA lost the Rams.

And they mostly aren't off the charts. Some of us really know what he was supposed to do and that he chose to fail to protect himself and not the kids. This stuff is what we do.

36. As are countless people, because whenever a child is abused...

there are often MANY PEOPLE who know, but this is truly the first time I've ever seen people come at one of those people like sharks with a sardine. I mean, REALLY? If that's the way it's gonna be, I want to see every one of those people who claimed to be so INCENSED that he didn't report it, going after every non-reporter that comes out in the news. However, I doubt they'll do that. It's just this one famous football guy, Joe Paterno, and then it will all die out, and there will be silence about every person that does not report an abuse.

And that is what irks the frikkin' hell out of me.

39. his hypocrisy plays in here too I think because he was supposed to be such a friend of young

people and he turns out to be a flop. When people set themselves up to be the way to go, paragons of virtue, champions of justice, rightness and young people it really REALLY disappoints. That's part of it.

Bing crosby used to be a favorite of mine until I read his son's book about him. He bet on when his first wife would die and he beat and abused his sons so much that two of them committed suicide. I can't tell you how offended I am when I see his shit or hear him. I turn it off. That is in play here. The phoniness behind the facade of being a hero. That is a big part of this, hon. Have a good day. It finally got above -21 here.

If you want to call them evil, focus on Fred Phelps. The rest are crazy, but they were made that way by Fred Phelps through his cultish mind control and constant beatings.

32. Westboro probably

considers him a cash cow - a dead one, but a cash cow just the same. I think they're counting on some of Joe's fans assaulting them. Westboro makes its money through lawsuits.
