    You asked, "Seriously, protesting funerals can't be forgiven? Ever. No matter if she was raised to this and knew no better and still somehow came around? Never forgiven?"

    The answer is no. Protesting funerals cannot be forgiven. I think people are here today are getting a little "forgiveness"-happy.

    These assholes had a "countdown" that numbered the amount of days that Matthew Shepard was in "Hell". And Megan was a part of this.

    So, my answer to you is no, there is no forgiveness. Not for what she, and they, did. Period.

      on what basis would anyone ever change? If there is no forgiveness for certain things why not just continue them forever? Because it doesn't matter if nothing you can ever do will atone for what you have done.

      I can imagine no better way to encourage people to continue in egregiously ugly behavior.

      A brainwashed 12 year old.

      Not hating her for that in no way diminishes the atrocity that was done at Matthew's funeral.

    •  the people protested are rejoicing that she's free (1+ / 0-)

      Wouldn't you like to be a pepper too?
