So yeah, they get way more attention. I don't think the Catholics are anywhere near deserving of being compared to the Westboro crowd, though.
Quote from: Z on April 09, 2013, 05:31:48 pmI get what you mean.And for a group of around 40 people, you have to admit that they do some pretty intercourse ed up poop. That's why the media is all over it. It's intercourse ed up.
Quote from: Kayo on April 09, 2013, 07:26:17 pmIt's not like anything they say will have any effect on laws passed and what not, and constantly giving them media attention is the equivalent of feeding an internet troll.

Quote from: CoasterKid93 on April 10, 2013, 08:18:37 amActually, the main members of the Westboro Baptist Church are extremely accomplished lawyers, and have represented themselves on a number of Supreme Court cases. While they may not directly create laws, they definitely have an impact on the institution that does.
Quote from: Kayo on April 10, 2013, 02:05:49 pmYeah, but how much credit does the law really give them in such cases? I mean, if they defend a point really well, then they defend it well. And if they have a good defense for whatever they're presenting, then so be it. It shouldn't matter whether or not they're part of the WBC at that point; what matters is their argument and only that. Even though you or I may not agree one bit with anything they say, you have to credit their side of a debate if it's backed up well.That being said, "GOD HATES FAGS" is not an acceptable defense, ever.
Quote from: CoasterKid93 on April 10, 2013, 03:42:29 pmWell, yeah. I wasn't saying that any of that didn't matter. I was just pointing out the fact that they have an impact on policy. For example, the 2011 Supreme Court case Snyder v. Phelps: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/03/02/westboro-baptist-church-w_n_830209.html
Quote from: Kayo on April 10, 2013, 06:03:49 pmWhat I meant originally, though, is that their radical opinions on social matters won't really have an effect on the governments' rulings on such matters.
Quote from: CoasterKid93 on April 10, 2013, 06:39:35 pmI know lol
Quote from: Kayo on April 10, 2013, 07:10:43 pmWell, when you brought up the article and said they had an "impact on policy" I wasn't sure we were quite on the same page.
Quote from: CoasterKid93 on April 10, 2013, 08:00:37 pmAn "impact on policy" in that the arguments they brought before the Supreme Court secured their ability to continue doing what they're doing.
