    Everyone's favourite extremist Christian group left a really strange, cryptic message on their blog the other day: Field Report - Napa, CA - 04.04.09 ... Because It's Almost Time To Leave ... That's Why, Dummy!

    This pretty much captures the essence of what they're saying:
    It's actually kind of frightening. Who knows what they're planning.

    Mourn the kids who were unlucky enough to have been born into that snakepit of hate, but let the rest of 'em do whatever they want. We'd all be better off without them here.

    I'm sorry for their misguidance. I hope they recognize their error before the end.

    I wouldn't bet on it. It seems rather self-centered that some harebrained followers believe that in the moment they pass from this earth, that God will then deliver a bunch of plagues. I really have a hard time believing their failed recognition of a group suicide, since last I checked suicide doesn't get you into Heaven. If anything, it reads more like, "Oh shit! Things are going to get nasty, and to avoid seeing all hell break loose, we need to duck out of here quickly."

    I read further in the blog entry.

    This backs up what I thought when I first "We gotta go!" It just means that the Westboro folks have to be quick about going in somewhere, hold up a fags sign, yelling, then hightailing it out of town. They've got "Gospel" to spread; they've got a lot of ground to cover and people to shout down. Should the Apocalypse come, they're ready to go, but I don't think they will die for it just yet.

    We should only be so lucky...

    Hmm so when I read this, all I am thinking is they are doing some sort of damage control before old man Fred Phelps kicks the bucket? Doesn't sound scary to me, just nothing less than expected from a group who are as demented as they are disliked.

    They know exactly how much time will elapse between their departure and '"the horror" to befall those they protest?

    Sounds more like they're intending to leave a bomb behind. I wonder if that blog posting is enough to justify a police raid of the 'church'.

    Can I bring the Cool Aid?

    I swear good riddance if that happens.

    They probably need money and have always hoped someone would confront them so they could sue them for money to support they stupid organization. I don't get the Napa reference and all of California. Do they plan on contaminating the wine country with desease or what. Some one should drop a very large bomb on there camp first.

    Discontentboy if you just turned 18 congrats on becoming a adult and welcome to LPSG. However, I hope you are not a frequent visitor to the Westbourgh Baptest website, that would be frightening.

    Wishing death upon them isn't exactly much better than what they themselves do. Every person has a right to free speech according to your First Amendment, no matter how disgusting, vile or delusional you may perceive their message to be (in this case, quite disgusting, vile and delusional). Anyway, we can only hope that they'll eventually feel less inclined to "spread their message".


    Thank you :). I am not a frequent visitor of their website (godhatesfags isn't exactly something I enjoy typing or looking at) and a friend of mine is actually the one who sent me the link. I believe they saw it on a blog.

    Considering the incalculable amount of suffering they have brought to grieving families, I can't imagine why I should think in any other fashion: they suck, let them kill themselves, the world will be a happier place once they're no longer in it. I hope I get a chance to see it.

    Everyone's favorite n00b? I guess my ballot got misplaced somewhere, 'cause I didn't know we were voting :rolleyes:

    Not that Discontentboy isn't lovely, mind you.

    I take mine with all the lemon and artificial sweetener possible, thankyou.

    You do realize that if you want to whisper, absolutely no one can read yellow, right?

    You want to see it? Don't you think that's a tad sadistic? You don't gain anything if these people choose to kill themselves.

    And y'all have to stop teasing me!

    No, DB: sorry if I wasn't clear. I want to live to see a world without Westboro Baptist Church. The actual self-offing needn't be televised in order for it to be effective.

    I hope they are not planning a Jonestown. Even if all of them genuinely end their lives willingly, it is such a waste, and just think if it was one of your family or a friend how you'd feel.
