Westboro Baptist Church hate group at area Dallas schools

"Obama is the Anti-Christ" is what one poster reads on the lawn of Skyline High School this morning. Another reads "God Hates Fagots", along with several other mean spirited and discriminating signs.

The group of half a dozen people, including what appears to be two school-age children, are members of Westboro Baptist Church. Apparently, the congregation is incensed with the Obama Administration for their proposed education reform initiatives and have a strong hatred or disdain for gay individuals. The hate is so evident that one can look at the name of their website, godhatesfags.com, for confirmation of their vile hatred of gay individuals.

According to their website, the group is scheduled to also picket in front of North Dallas High School today as well. The group has shared no rhyme or reason as to why they have selected these schools.

The Skyline High School administration was aware of the picket and had secured strong police presence beforehand.

Granted, the group is exercising their First Amendment Right to Freedom of Speech and Freedom of Assembly, it is just disheartening to see a group expelling such strong hatred with diabolical attitudes. Can we imagine, what it must have been like for previous hate groups such as the Ku Klux Klan, rallying outside of Cinncinatti in the 80's?

However, this group assembling represents an underlying and more troubling issue. An issue of intolerance and anti-nationalists sentiment that seems to be growing in this new era of "change".

    These people have nothing better to do, so they walk around and act like immature hateful homophobes.

    These are brilliant fellows who are excising a curial right that they have been endowed with. I personally believe they are intelligent fellows and have a great dedication to their goals.

    They are a group of brainless morons, led by the biggest nutcase on the planet, Fred Phelps. Get out of Dallas and go back to your backwards, gutless home.

    I just saw part of a docementury on Fred phelps and his church last friday. I was enraged at what I saw. How can these people even say they are religious and hate on God, and everyone else for that matter? I belive they are just using religion to justify their hatred. I know we are living in some hard times but never did I think the world would be faced with something that wickid. Yes we've had things like Nazi's, KKK, and skinheads, but somehow the westbro baptist church makes those groups seem like amastures. I belive fully in free speak but what that church is doing is just wrong! I do not feel anyone should have to tolerate what they have done! So I say do what Matin Luther King taught fight in non violent manners! No matter our heritage, race, orientation etc we are all Americans it is our diversity that allows us to unite , so we need to fight towards the common good!

    God bless the Westboro Baptist Church for not backing down in the face of wickedness and Godless adversity. Jesus didn't die on the cross so you can wallow in your favorite sin like a pig in poop. Choose this day whom you will serve ... God or Satan. If God, then repent.
