Will be there outside the Union with my own sign. "God Hates Westboro Baptist."

We don't talk politics on 11W, but I will say this: Westboro is the one organization that the right and left hates equally. Complete scumbags.

Yeah, it was very hard to write this Buckshot apolitically, but I am a company man.

What exactly does DADT and NYS legislation have to do with tOSU? And, where were these jackoffs from WBC during Tatgate when we needed their profiund spirotual guidance?

Johnny Hooker: "He's not as tough as he thinks". Henry Gondorff: "Neither are we".

Tatgate is God's punishment for our gay-loving alma mater, didn't you know that?


If I'm not working that morning, I plan on helping the counter-protest.  Man, do I hate these clowns.

They came to the town I live in inside Alabama. We had a fatal bus wreck that killed several teens. It was accidentaly run off of the overpass by another teen believed to have been communicating with an occupant on the bus. Anyhow, Westboro folks <I refuse to call them christians> received a permit to protest across the street from the church that the funerals were collectively being held at. <the city couldn't refuse them> This was at a prodominantly black area of town and the protestors didn't share the same herritage. The police were on full alert with their mobile riot patrol. The strangest thing happened though, 6 transit buses mysteriously broke down bumper to bumper in front of their assigned area and nothing they said could be heard from the noise of construction that was going on in the neighborhood behind them and nothing could be seen due to the buses that had advertising strangely covering the windows of the broke down busses. Now conspiracy theorist might believe the police department or city had something to do with it but I think god is not pleased with the Westboro antagonist. I have a small voice but would offer the readers here an opportunity to demonstrate maturity and professionalism if confronted by or found in the vacinity of these fools. They sit wait for attacks to occur. The amount of pending lawsuits they have are plentiful. Don't give them ammunition or a noose to hang you with.

I don't always take names when I kick ass but when I do, they most often belong to a Wolverine.

I hope that no one here will be actually stupid enough to assault them or anything, but I think that mocking them is perfectly acceptable.

I am just trying to see the point in it. They are attempting the enflame folks. Students are attempting enflame them. Whats the point? There may come a day where the law no longer exists, and every man is accountable for his words and deeds. When we can no longer hide behind the internet I suspect there will be a whole lot less talking shit. My dad always told me there was one thing that mattered most in this world and that was the ability to take care of one's self when words fail. There are many in this world that words will not touch.

You guys realize this would never have happened if Tressel were still coach, right? [via him being homeboys with the Jesus]

Just another reason to hate Pryor :(

Please no one do anything stupid.  These people have nothing to do with a church.  They are professional scammers that only do this to invoke people into assaulting them.  Then they sue for hundreds of thousands of dollars.  It's not a 'church' - it's a crazy family of like 2 dozen people.

The Campus LGBT group needs to stage a group make out session in front of the protesters. That would be all kinds of awesome. Or maybe a flash mob sequence to "It's Raining Men."

re: Flash mob to "It's Raining Men"

FREAKING AWESOME! I'm emailing my former Dance 161 instructor now to pass on the idea. (yes, I took that as my fine arts credit... tons of hotties in the class)

Althought the "church" wouldn't actually care since their just grifters anyway. The positive PR  for tOSU would be pretty good though, lord knows we could use it.

I think those dirt bags will eventually picket the wrong soldier's funeral some day and there will not be any of them left to sue...Fingers crossed.

Long live the southend.

Well done, Nappy.  If I were to counter-protest, this is the sign I would make.

I don't know if it was the same group or not, but when I went to NKU about 7 years ago there was some "religious" folks trying to "save" us all.  The ringleader was Brother Dan, they had a former NFL football player, Can't remember his name, holding a giant banner that said GOD HATES, then had all these horrible things like Blood Sucking Jews, Evil Catholics etc etc etc.  What they also had were several guys with cameras filming the crowd from different angles.  They guy was insulting anyone in the crowd he could telling they would go to hell etc.  Somone like me, who is comfortable in my beliefs and not neccessarily devout to a given church, can see that crap for what it is, a scam to get people pissed off enough to do something stupid. 

I looked him up online, back then I doubt it was google lol, and sure enough they were natorious for going to different campuses around the country and getting a kid to punch them, capturing it on tape, and  then filing suit against them.  These groups love attention, and love the fact that they get people worked up.  Ignoring these fools is what kills them.  The day they come to a campus and a crowd doesn't form, or other people aren't their with signs insulting them, is the day they quit going to campuses.

As fun as a counter-protest sounds, I think Albert's right.  The only way to make them go away is to ignore them.  Trolls love getting a rise out of people.  That's why they troll.

BUT, if counter-trolling is so much fun, do we really want to get rid of them....?

Gosh, I know quite a lot of people who have told me that "God hates Ohio State," and they never got this kind of publicity...
