Anonymous brought their own banner to obstruct WBC's protest. This one reads "ANONYMOUS LOVES EVERBODY."

One Cardinals fan ignored the fence and tried to debate a picketer. (Note: The WBC makes it a point to always bring a child to its protests for some fucking reason.)

WBC picketers tied American and rainbow flags to their legs so that they would trample them with each step.

They are not news. If you don't cover them, they go away. Like some celebrities, they thrive on attention...good or bad.

I have a problem with the article saying "God's indiscriminate hatred". It is not God that hates, His word teaches us to LOVE indiscriminately. It is the people from WBC that are spreading hate.

Love thy neighbor means to warn them their sin is leading them into hell. What could be more loving than that? Hatred is to sit there and watch the world walk into hell silently. God said "For Jacob have I loved and Esau have I hated." When you say "God loves everyone" you tell people God feels the same about all people. God clearly says he does not...Jacob and Esau. God also does not have the same end in store for all people "I will have mercy upon whom I choose" God says. Those whom he has mercy on, he loves. Those whom he denies mercy too, he hates. God's hatred is to deny favor, grace and mercy. To separate them from him in hell and to punish the impenitent sinner for all eternity. "God loves everyone" is a LIE that teaches people they do not have to repent or obey. Hell comes next! Christ is Lord.

They don't even bother me. They are a joke and when people see them they understand that they are just a big pain in the a** joke as well. Protesters should stand in front of them with giant black boards that say....."I like black cardboard!"

Stop giving them the attention they so desperately crave by writing about them.

We at the Landover Baptist Church offer our full support for Westboro's exercise of their God given right to free speech (as ratified in our most male Christian based USA Constitution).

No reach around grasp of the long, slender shaft of democracy for the Brothers & Sisters of Westboro. A fabulous and most glorious display of ultra-chic signage outside a ballpark full of real men, proudly adjusting their jockstraps and sporting biblical beards!

If the Cardinals would drop the sloppy, limp wristed, fagginess and stop playing baseball like they were backstage at an Elton John concert, we could celebrate a righteous smiting of the heathen Red Sox (who are most likely drunken Irish Catholics and imported Hispanic Mary worshipers!

On your knees Cardinals and Tebow to the Lord if you you want Jesus to favor you in tonights game.

The only reason I'd ever believe in hell is just so those assholes end up there, getting fucked in the ass by homosexual barbwire covered penises for eternity.

They should never get any press or even a mention of their activities.

What's they're reasoning this time for picketing? Don't they just hate everyone and picket everything to try to get recruits and attention?

@moniekate78 His word teaches to treat women as second class, gays as abominations and people of other religions as hellbound. Hate is hate.

@roxyblu18 Why would you worship something that randomly picks and chooses whose going to Heaven and whose going to Hell?

@Mary Spina Hawkins Love thy neighbor = warn them sin leads to hell. Hate is to remain silent.
