    Its parent-teacher conferences made the evening news. So did cases of swine flu. And Sidwell Friends School has recently been the target of a few small protests that seem aimed at prominent parents, not students.

    The school, long a favorite of Washington's leading families, is no stranger to presidential children. But in the months since Barack and Michelle Obama decided to send their daughters there, Sidwell has been pulled into the spotlight of a distinctly 21st-century culture -- one that is increasingly celebrity-obsessed and often shockingly unmannered.

    Educators and others at Sidwell have portrayed this as what their most famous parent might call a "teachable moment."

    When five anti-Obama, anti-gay protesters appeared in front of the school's Wisconsin Avenue NW entrance Monday morning, they were met by 150 Sidwell students waving signs ranging from "There is that of God in Everyone" to "I Kissed a Girl and I Liked It."

    "I guess they think they can influence what we think because we're young and vulnerable," said Daniel Edminster, a Sidwell junior. "They can't."

    I'm not a violent person, and I wouldn't really want to hurt any other human being, I don't think it's really conducive to my life, quite frankly.

    That being said, I don't consider the members of that church human and I would thoroughly enjoy watching them die.

    Because the best message to impress onto children is that an omniscient, omnipresent and omnipotent being hates you and personally you.

    I think its really weird how they are Baptist Christian and say that God hates everyone and stuff like that.. Its like an oxymoron or something. I dont even know what to call it.. my mind is still blown that these people exist and have such an ass-backwards mindset.
    I'm not a bible thumper or anything, but what the hell is their problem?

    If I could kill Fred Phelps and get away with it, I would. He's sub-human. Less than an animal, even. He's a fucking insect, and someone should smash him.

    Not just for this shit, but for everything else he's done, too. The only thing that would satisfy me as much as hearing he'd been killed would be hearing he'd been put in prison and brutally sodomized.

    EDIT: Then again, the inmates fucking him might be charged with bestiality.

    They just call themselves a Baptist Christian Church and appear to be citing views held in Christianity (which quite frankly, they aren't even close) to try and legitimize their blind hatred.

    I'm an atheist :smug:.

    I understand they're absolutely stupid, but I find that being overly religious is stupid too.
    Being overly anything is absolutely stupid.

    Edit:

    But yeah these people are absolutely disgusting. But no matter how bad they are, so long as they are not infringing on the rights of others, they have the right to believe what they want.

    Though I do think they have crossed the line.

    I love that the students went outside in force with their own picket signs. Nice to see them not being affected by the Westboro shite.

    I never understood the whole picketing thing for things like this(or anything generally). Why would anyone decide to make signs and stand in protest on the other side of the road against people who are basically real-life trolls? That would probably be close to #1 on my list of absolutely pointless ways to waste your life, as you achieve nothing and give them free publicity. Do they expect these extremists(aren't they actually taking the bible more literally than most?) to change their views due to a small counter-protest like this? I just don't understand what would compel anyone to do such a thing.

    I think they are talking about another god than the one I heard of.


    By the way: Could you actually go to the police and say they insulted you when they hold those signs up to your nose? I would feel insulted by their dumbness.
