A Look Inside the Westboro Baptist Church

If you've missed KMOV's peek this week inside the Westboro Baptist Church, it's worth checking out. Reporter Craig Cheatham spent a few days in Topeka hanging out with Rev. Fred Phelps and his offspring -- which make up about 90 percent of the controversial "God Hates Fags" congregation.

Here's one of the clips from his stay.

I want to feel sorry for these people, but without a clear cut case of  diagnosed mental illness or a family wide brain trauma incident IE; they all got thrown from a train & hit head first  , I cant pity them. there people are stupid by choice . All I can do is hope they never come protesting anything I am attending. I wonder if this "Church" would exist at all if it wasn't a tax shelter , like all churches. Last year alone , Pat Robertson ( CBN - 700 club ) took in 647 million tax free dollars. He lives in a Ocean front 200 million dollar home thats surrounded by a custom made vehicle proof fence  thats backed by a private security force. ( i have seen it )  A private jet & roumor has it , a "Hot Line" to the New york stock exchange.

Good Job. Keep feeding the Trolls, and they'll continue to Troll.

I don't know. I think Cheatham does a pretty good job of confronting the Phelpses. Fred's statement that his preaching is more important for Americans than food, water and air shows his mindset.

I recall at old saying about kids are being annoying to get attention - Ignore them and they'll go away. Same holds true here. If they were to ever find themselves without an audience or lawsuits to file because idiotic muni-govs and the such pass unconstitutional laws trying to punish people because they don't like their speech - POOF! - the trolls will go away.

No matter who is confronting them or what their tactics are, ignoring them is the only truly effective measure here.

I realize that there will always be those that feed the Trolls IRL, just as they do in the Intertubes - and while you can't stop the fools from being fools - that doesn't mean you feed them yourself. As your contributing to the problem, hell I am doing by commenting on this little piece.

Fuck. Shoot me.

I see where you're coming from. But there's no way you can get everyone to ignore them. They're too good at pulling people's strings.
