|It's on- I guess.|
About 10 members of a group known as the Knights of the Southern Cross (A Virginia Klan affiliate.) said they were counter-protesting the Westboro Baptist Church's anti-troop message(Dude... you're the fucking Klan.) Dennis LaBonte, the self-described "Imperial Wizard" of the Knight of the Southern Cross, is quoted as saying:
"It's the soldier that fought and died and gave them that right to free speech,"
Of course, he has a point, and it's a great one but- he's the fucking "Imperial Wizard" and founded of the Southern Cross Knights. Being the, moderate I am it's only fair that I give his website- Knights Of The Southern Cross. You should leave him a nice email.
Anyway, Abigail Phelps won me over after what she rather surprisingly said regarding the Knights, her words were:
"That's fine,they have no moral authority on anything. People like them say it's white power...white supremacy, The Bible doesn't say anywhere that it's an abomination to be born of a certain gender or race."
Considering her stance on homosexuals, people who have premarital sex, and musicians(They're all "fags" apparently, her words not mine.) I'm surprised they aren't racist or at least outwardly racist.
After more people (Non-Klan) began blocking the 3 WBC members, they eventually were forced back under their bridge-(get it?) Phelps proclaimed she and her posse was there to tell people they should not "idolize" the dead, especially those who died for an "unrighteous cause." To be completely fair, of course the Klan was right, but still- it's the fucking Klan. Congrats WBC you win in my book. Happy Memorial Day.
