The American Nightmare That Is The Westboro Church

Take a peek inside the psyche of Shirley Phelps-Roper.  This video is chilling, and provides a look inside the well organized, fanatically disciplined Phelps family and Westboro Church.  You’ve been warned.

I’m guilty of giving Westboro Church a platform, but it isn’t just me.  They’ve done a pretty good job ginning up publicity for themselves by bastardizing the first amendment.

Now that the Supreme Court has upheld the Phelps family’s ability to protest, they have clear license to disrupt and demagogue other Americans, as they grieve and bury their loved ones.  And since they’re emboldened, what are the odds that they will ratchet up the protests, the venom, and the rancor without fear of repercussion? Something just seems so menacing about this.
