This is just... I have no words.

Quote :
Kansas-based Westboro Baptist Church has decided to back down from their plans to picket the funeral of 9-year-old Christina Taylor Green, the young girl who was gunned down over the weekend in Tucson, Arizona, in a shooting that claimed the lives of 5 others. In return, they have been promised airtime by two radio stations.

According to Phelps-Roper, however, Westboro still plans to go through with their demonstrations at the funeral service for slain U.S. District Judge John Roll, and at the original site of the rampage in Tucson.

How much air time are those morons being given?
Is their manner of speech considered hate speech? If not, it should be.
Whose bright idea was this anyways?
What radio stations should I send angry letters to?

To answer your questions in order:

1) They are being given 30 minutes of uninterrupted air time, so long as they do not use profanity or behave obscenely. (I give the over/under at 10 minutes before they break that condition and get bounced).

2) "Hate speech" laws don't apply because they would have to hate a specific "protected class". Since they hate everyone except themselves pretty equally, that won't pass muster.

3) It was the radio station's idea - they figured giving them airtime would prevent them from disrupting a 9-year-old's funeral and turning it into a circus.

4) The station is KXXT, a 500-watt AM Christian radio station in the Tuscon area.

I would love to hear that the radio stations suffered "technical difficulties" when it's time for the church to have its airtime.

Oddly enough, the station experienced a total power outage when it was time for the broadcast to begin. This was later blamed on the city trimming trees near the building, and accidentally cutting a power line...

Frankly, I salute the station for being willing to put up with these idiots and keep the girl's family from being exposed to their vitrolic hatred at their daughter's funeral. God knows, losing a child is hard enough.

Hah! Karma is served! Accident or no accident, that's sweet.

I agree that the radio stations did a good job with finding a way to keep the church from the funeral. I just wish there were other ways to keep these morons away from all funerals without having to cater to their attention-whoring ways.

I think necroposting is a lesser sin than starting a whole new thread on the WBC, so consider this news bit my birthday gift to all of you:

High court rules for military funeral protesters

While it seems to be a reaffirmation of what's protected speech and what isn't, I'm willing to bet the WBC will interpret it as an affirmation of their mission--God on their side and whatnot--and I'd also bet that we see a dramatic spike in protests. They've been lackluster lately, not showing up to protests they'd heavily publicized or sending one dumbass with a pathetic sign that no one takes notice of. That will likely change, I'm sure.

I'd give you their take on it, but their hateful little site appears to be down at the moment. What a pity that they can't serve up their intolerant, loathsome viewpoints on the internet right now. Such a pity.

Don't bother. What they think will not be constructive and your visit will help generate ad dollars for them.
