''Our mission is to get in the faces of people who promote this lifestyle and make them understand what an abomination this is before God," said the church's attorney, Shirley Phelps-Roper, who is also the daughter of the church's pastor, Fred Phelps. ''They need to know, they need to be told that there is a God, there is a standard and a hell. If you live like the devil, you can't expect to go to heaven."</td>

Yeah, someone is definitely promoting a lifestyle here... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/irked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="irked">:

Oh, this guy! Anyone who has children carrying around stick figure porn, spewing hate should be.... Anyone who protests funerals (even childrens funerals) should be.... I think I had a thread on the possiblities a while ago.

Those wacky Phelpses, at it again! I see this time they're also annoyed about churches that preach *gasp* tolerance:<br><br><div style="margin:20px;margin-top:5px;">

Telling people that God loves everyone? Oh, the blasphemy! Where's the Inquisition when you really need it? (wait, I forgot, Phelps & Co are probably anti-Catholic too)<br>
This dangerous nutbar just makes all Christians look bad, and that's a shame, because most of the Christians I know are really nice people, not hate-spewing publicity whores.<br><br>
IS his "church" tax-exempt?

I wish those people would come up with a new name for themselves, because they sure don't have much to do with Christianity.<br><br>
Oops, lumi called it. The First Evangelical Church of Hate-spewing Publicity Whores for Jeeezus.

Hmmm...so they're protesting at the GRADUATION CEREMONY...? Not at a superintendants or teachers meeting....<br><br><br>
Nah, this has NOTHING to do with publicity you all! Stop being over sensitive. Obviously the graduating seniors were so involved with the Kindergarten reading material that they have must be stopped! Only then shall the righteous prosper! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/irked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="irked">:<br><br>

His main point is confrontation which has led to altercation and subsequently lawsuits for damages sufferd at the hands of perverse heathens.<br><br>
There is a high probability he won't show. About 2 or 3 mos ago he was going to come here to protest a local high schools drama department for their choice of a Spring play...The Larimy(sp?) Project. But the local PFlag, GLBA etc. made it clear they would be holding a counter peaceful demostration offsite and avoid Phelps like the plague(that he is!). I suppose when he found there would likely not be any tertiary cashflow from a lawsuit for aggravated assault he and his merry band of pranksters didn't show.<br><br>
I wonder what his screen name is on the gay porn sites he no doubtedly frequents. He is sooooooo repressed! :LOL<br><br>

Elowyn I am so sorry. Why was he picketing the park and zoo?<br><br>
Yep I know the public schools in this area are making an attempt to turn all of the students homosexual. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/eyesroll.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="roll"> In fact the level of tolerance for homosexual lifestyles is the whole reason I will be homeschooling. (please read this as very sarcastic)

Wasn't it penguins that were preferring the same gender companions? Maybe Phelps will go to the South Pole and permanently stay there to protest gay penguins <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"><br><br>

The story was about penguins. I don't know...I don't really want him bothering penguins either...the south pole doesn't have polar bears does it? Why not far north where there are penguins AND polar bears?
