My photos from the Soulforce protest at Focus on the Family, May 1.
I don't want to double post large files, so if interested, please see this thread: http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.ph...

It was a pretty cold day to be standing out there!

1. I just want to thank you for posting the pics
and for standing out there in the freezing rain/cold weather.

I should have been there...I live way up north of Denver, but the hubby and I have talked a few times about going down to CO Spgs to protest that horrible ministry on our own. His dogmatic stance on everything from breaking the spirit of "strong-willed" children, to beating dogs, to his GLBT hate-speak, and lately his absurd ideas about judicial "tyranny" -- all of it -- proves to me that he never knew Jesus.

2. Well, he does seem to have a shallow and immature faith in God.
Oddly enough, we seem to have an active community of Christians who have actually read and understood the lessons in the Bible, especially in the New Testament. :-)

And those Topeka people, I think they are suffering from group reinforced delusions.

3. About Those Topeka People
Most of the members of the Westboro Baptist Church are members of Fred Phelps' extended family. So the problem may also be genetic.

4. Inbreeding.
Absolutely genetic.

5. LOL. You two are way harsh. But that is a point.
Nature and a whole lot of bad nurture, that would explain it.

6. Early education, for sure.
They were picketing outside the church I attended in the Springs that morning, and had very young children with them.

The saddest thing is... heterosexual relationships created all those Topeka people. Oh, the irony!
