    They’re both vile groups. Hope they destroy each other!

    1. AnnihilatedSoul 19 Dec 2012, 7:09am

      Wouldn’t that just be awesome?!

    2. Just so long as no innocent people get caught in the cross fire. My heart aches for their indoctrinated children.

  2. Jesus Christ !

    The KKK will be having bake sales and raising money for orphans next. Have they turned into someone else than a White Supremacist group ?!

    More to the point, what is that child doing there? Isn’t there a case for taking away these children as they’re being radicalised and exposed to extremism? Where is the child’s welfare in this? He’ll grow up to be another Andrews Breivik, he’ll be 18 and find himself in a world which is accepting of people who are gay, won’t be able to get a job with other ‘normal’ people – his whole life ruined. If I grew up in the WBC I’d demand the state take me in to care.

    1. Well in the US this comes under freedom of speech and religion. Teaching your kids to hate is not a crime and is not regarded as a hazard to a child’s welfare…I actually have to support that to a degree, I don’t want to set a precedent where people who say unpopular things lose their kids. And remember most of this cult are family members and lawyers as well, ready to step right in and file lawsuits which have generated a tidy sum for the ‘church’. Many of the children have ‘escaped’ as older teens and adults. I don’t like it, but I don’t know that we have an objective set of standards that can be used…at least not ones that couldn’t also be used to take kids away from gay parents.

      Remember that the EDL has a gay section. There are gay racists around in this country too, so it’s not that implausible that this bit of the KKK has racists

      1. The EDL only excludes and targets those it considers foreign. This is regardless of race, gender, sexuality, disability, etc. Therefore, it’s not surprising that they have gays.

        The Ku Klux Klan also considers homosexuality an abomination, putting gays right up there with blacks and Jews. They’re not protesting the WBC because they’re hurt by the homophobia. They’re doing it because they’re incredibly patriotic and like soldiers. In fact, if you’re patriotic and homophobic, the most offensive thing (I would assume) would be to call a soldier a fag.

        The EDL is mindless in its xenophobia, and many members are offensive and clearly driven by racism. But it is unfair to compare it to the Klan (a group that takes pride in its history of lynching blacks, including pregnant women).

  3. The KKK have at least Anti-Catholicism in common with the LGBT activists.

    1. Give it a rest you pr**k. Why the f**k would I be anti-Catholic when the majority of Catholics here and in the UK support full equal rights ! It’s only the vampires and hooligans who have infected the Catholic hierarchy and leadership who are the problem, and most Catholics don’t listen to them anyway. I don’t believe in God, nor in the slightest, but if people want to believe in it good for them, if it helps them. But wingnuts who want to impose their religion on others are hated by the majority. Hated. Nobody has rule over my life, I decide what I do, not people like you. I will do what feels right for me and it is none-of-your-business.

      Now kindly stop stalking these forums or I will be reporting your posts.

      And I’m not a f**king activist – I’m an ordinary person, who just wants to be left alone by Catholic weirdos as opposed to normal nice accepting Catholics. I reject you 100% and everything you stand for. Now pee off and stop your baiting and harassment.

      So did Hitler. It didn’t make him anyone’s common ally either.

      1. Yeah Hitler hated Catholics too .

      2. The first treaty Hitler signed when he came to office was with the Catholic church. Just saying…

    3. LGBT activists aren’t anti-Catholicism, they’re just pro-human rights.

      1. have you read the hate filled rants on here ?

    4. Hodge Podge 19 Dec 2012, 2:50pm

      “Rarely do these Gay Pride hate-groups go after Orthodox Jews and Muslims with the same intensity”

      The Catholic church is more influential than Orthodox Jews and Muslims in this country.

    5. Quite a lot of people, gay and straight, are against the catholic church because they cover up child abuse. Are those people just like the KKK too?

    “Your enemy’s enemy [The KKK] is your friend?”

    Erm how about NO Pinknews. What a f***ing stupid thing to type.

    1. I think it was a joke…

    2. Pink News didn’t coin the phrase. “The enemy of my enemy is my friend.” is an old proverb in more than one culture. It is thinking of this nature that had our foreign policy experts in bed with the Ayatollah Khomeini and binLaden when they were fighting the Soviet Union.

      I’m sure we all have seen how brilliantly that strategy failed, including the editors of Pink News. It was definitely a tongue in cheek statement. Lighten up.

  5. Book-Lover 19 Dec 2012, 1:25am

    It makes sense. I’ve always suspected that the KKK, like other supremacy groups, was primarily populated by homosexuals. Just like the Greeks, Romans, Nazis, Muslims, etc, homosexuality (especially pederasty) seems to go hand-in-hand with supremacy and race-hatred.

  6. With ‘friends’ like that who needs enemies. The KKK couldn’t care any more for gay people than the Phelps could. They are clear this is just about the soldiers’ funerals. If they had the same leeway today as they had in earlier years, they’d be lynching gay people as well as black people, while the US police turned a blind eye. Their racist literature on interracial marriage used gay marriage as an example of ‘what would come next’. I honestly can’t believe there’s still an active KKK in today’s world, it’s like the flat earth society, except the flat earth society today is done solely in jest.

    1. GingerlyColors 19 Dec 2012, 6:57am

      The Catholic Inquisition burnt people at the stake for believing that the Earth was round and it orbited the Sun. Nowadays, thanks to science not even the Pope disputes those facts so why does he continue to dispute homosexuality as normal?

      1. Lynda Yilmaz 19 Dec 2012, 8:24am

        The Catholic Church cannot do any turnarounds on anything without undermining the authority they have been exercising and profiting from for hundreds of years. I truly believe that the hierarchies in all the religious groups know that there is no god, but they have to keep it going to ensure they maintain their power.

        1. Lucas Freljord 19 Dec 2012, 4:01pm

          Well damn, if anyone KNOWS that there is no god, they must be omniscient themselves!

          … Wait no, that doesn’t work…

      2. Yawn, more ignorant anti-catholicism I’ve heard regurgitated so many times ! The ‘black legend’ has much to do with protestant propaganda and the gothic imagination (eg Poe)& Python ! .Copernicus was a canon (perhaps even a priest) and the Church had no problems with his theory – remember science, art, architecture, universities(“lanterns shining in the house of God.” said one Pope) all flourished due to the Church.
        God’s Philosophers: How the Medieval World Laid the Foundations of Modern Science
        How the Catholic Church Built Western Civilization

        suggested reading for the ignorant ^ :)

      Its not hard to believe really… I mean we still have Neo-Nazi groups all around the world. Sadly there will always be those kinds of people in this world that think they are better than someone else because of race/heritage/religion.

  7. 2ollux captor 19 Dec 2012, 4:36am

    At least the KKK’s doing something for the greater good for once.

  8. GingerlyColors 19 Dec 2012, 7:01am

    Hopefully all these hate groups end up turning their guns upon each other, before they overturn the Second Amendment which I sincerely hope will be soon following the tragedy in Connecticut.

  9. Joshua Dimmack 19 Dec 2012, 7:14am

    Do you really have to include photos of the signs. We’ve seen them before. Posting this picture is like you Holding up one of those signs yourself and showing it to [insert # of page hits this article gets] people.

  10. Jock S. Trap 19 Dec 2012, 9:06am

    So Vile discriminating groups protesting … another Vile discriminating group… oh what fun… Not!

    As for “God Hates Fags protestor Abigail Phelps said the KKK “have no moral authority on anything.”” .. LOL Because they do?… Not!!

    All hypocrites!!

  11. Darren Theoret 19 Dec 2012, 9:17am

    G-d hates hate!

  12. theGentleWarrior 19 Dec 2012, 9:59am

    Not everyone who drops sh-t on you is your enemy.
    Not everyone who gets you out of sh-t is your friend.
    And when you’re in deep sh-t, keep your mouth shut!

  13. Canada has done the same the as the UK . We won’t allow them into the country either. I think its so terrible of this group to protest anyones funerals. The Westboro church needs to be recognized as a hate group

    1. HighMaintenanceQueenie 24 Dec 2012, 12:10am

      how do they know a person is a member??

  14. “..the Supreme Court, with a majority of eight to one, ruled that the church should be allowed to picket funerals….”

    At least there’s one decent American.

  15. The KKK were supporting the relatives of the dead soldiers, not supporting gay rights. The BNP would do the same here, if Islamists tried to disrupt a serviceman’s funeral. That does not mean the BNP oppose the Islamists anti-gay policies.

  16. What about if it’s a black solider’s funeral?

  17. Our enemy’s enemy is certainly not our bloody friend. Racist, homophobic, anti-semitic hateful pieces of shit who only ever happen to cross the paths of one progressive cause completely by accident when opportunistically criticising another.

  18. Cannot say what I can make of the KKK involvement…but Westboro brings more people over to our side than you can imagine…extreme positions — and how much more extreme does it get?– push uncommitted people to think and then walk away from such nonsense. Even people who are not coming down for gay rights cannot countenance this crowd…well, if the KKK thinks you are too hard on gays or something…yeah…

    1. I love how no one here gives a shit about the fact that these people gave there lives fighting for a country full of people that hate them. All you people care about is whether they were gay or black or latino.. A SOLDIER lost there life here.

  19. Excellent.

    Christian racists opposing Christian homophobes.

    Anyone see the correlation here.

    1. Imagine the constant bickering that must go on in heaven…

  20. DO BELIVE THAT MAN AND WOMEN WERE MENANT TO BE TOGETHER AND NO MAN AND MAN OR WOMAN AND WOMAN. tHAT IS MY HONEST OPINION ON WHAT i THINK IT SHOUULD BE AND TYOU CAN’T TAKE MY PERSONAL VIEW AWAY NOR CAN I CHANGE THE WAY THE WORLD IS TODAY. AS FAR AS WBC IS CONCERNED, WHO DO THEY THINK THEY ARE, LITTLE ANGLES OF TERROR SENT BY GOD TO SEAK OUT EVERYTHING THAT THEY THINK IS WRONG ACCORDING TO THEIR BIBLE AND RANT, POINT FINGERS, CONDEME, PROSECUTE AND ANIHILATE THE BAD PEOPLE OF AMERICA. YOU HAVE NO UPPER AUTHORITY OVER ANYONE ELSE YOU ARE JUST AS HUMAN AS ANYONE ELSE WITH NO DOUBT SINS OF YOUR OWN. YOUR OWN BIBLE SAYS THAT SHALL NOT JUDGE, ONLY GOD CAN. JESUS ONLY VIITED THE SINNERS HOMES WHO BEGGED FOR FORGIVENESS, NOT THAT RATICALS WHO FALSE PRESTNSE ON REALITY THOUGHT WOULDD BRING THEM CLOSER AND BE BY GODS SIDE…WALE UP FOOLS

    1. CAPS LOCK CAPS LOCK CAPS LOCK CAPS LOCK CAPS LOCK.

      Simmer down and comment normaly, nobody wants to read a comment that’s all in caps. It’s annoying and buggering to the eyes.

  21. Our government wants us to be divided. So we can’t focus on their troubles. Government employees are also the entitlement population also. They don’t serve the average human only themselves . Government employees are just as the unemployed who collects. My question is what value do they add to the American citizens ?

  22. HilleltheElder 20 May 2013, 12:07pm

    When even the KKK counter-pickets you, you know that you are ALONE.

    No props to the KKK on their attitude towards same-gender orientated people, it’s just that Evil Has Standards.
