It was one of those things that made me feel there is hope for humanity after all.

Okay, remember how Fred Phelps and the assholes from the Westboro Baptist Church were going to picket at the funeral of Christina-Taylor Green, the 9 year old girl killed in the shooting rampage in Arizona?

1)  They never showed up.  Pussies.

2)  Maybe they didn't show up because of some other people who decided to attend the public gathering. 

More than 1,000 of them.

They responded to the Internet call to arms.  Holy crap, did they respond.

Among them were Dennis Bennet, who showed up with 55 brothers from the Phoenix Motorcycle Riders Group.  "We just want to show our support," Bennett said. "And if dummies show up, we want to stand in front of them."

It's an important lesson that jaded cynics like me need to keep in mind -- there ARE good people out there.  Keep the faith.

There are good people... and oddly, they are bikers.

From what I heard, Phelps and his cronies were planning to protest the funeral of that 9 year old who was killed. To that, I'm thinking, "what the fuck did a 9 year old girl do to deserve such potential bullshit?"

and then I imagined them holding signs that read, "God Hates Children!" "Children Burn in Hell" and "Thank God For Child Killers"


On another note, I bet that someone, somewhere, is going to use the extremely stupid philosophy of, "What is popular isn't always right," or "The world will hate you" to justify Phelp's stupid agenda.

Urgh, sorry, shit like Phelp's makes me mad. At least, as you said, there are good people in this world, and I thank God for them.

I was wondering if Phelps showed up...I heard about the line of supporters outside of the funeral. Warms the heart.

Have you heard of the Patriot Guard Riders? They're amazing. And they remind me that there are good people in the world. :)
