    from the family members of every funeral they ever picketed, every politician they attacked in vile ways through horrible letters, faxes (they used to send hundreds of faxes per day) and everyone else they attacked with vile insults.  

    Maybe then, she might deserve a little forgiveness.

    Time to get started.

      ...you want her to beg forgiveness for everything WBC has ever done, as opposed to whatever her willing, voluntary, uncoerced part was in it?

      And would the goalposts be moved while she was doing so, to insure that she never achieved enough to satisfy some of WBC's victims?

      •  Are the perpetrators of evil more sympathetic (0+ / 0-)

        than the victims whose lives were destroyed?

        And yes, I recognize that there is an argument her life was destroyed by living in the cabal.  Her birth was not her choice.

        Honestly, I do have a touch more sympathy for the grandchildren than the children of Fred Phelps.  A touch.

        Not offering forgiveness is not the same as hate.  Hate is an active emotion.  I'm more indifferent.  I have nothing to offer the Phelps.

      with a cult that practiced religious child abuse?  You knew what they were doing to the children, and you did nothing.

      guns are fun v. hey buddy, watch what you are doing -- which side are you on?

        know all the facts, you shouldn't make those types of accusations.
