Anyone ever heard of the Westboro Baptist Church? It is a church located in Topeka Kansas and is known widely for its extreme ideologies such as;

Protesting military/aids/gay funerals.
Protesting gays in general.
Protests against Jewish institutions
Protesting the Marine Core
From Wikipedia : On May 14, 2008, two days after the deadly 2008 Sichuan earthquake, WBC issued a press release thanking God for the heavy loss of life in China, and praying "for many more earthquakes to kill many more thousands of impudent and ungrateful Chinese".[58]
Starting the campaign "Thank God for Dead Soldiers"

"The Westboro Baptist Church considers membership in most religious groups, such as the Roman Catholic Church or Islam, as akin to devil worship..."

"Westboro Baptist refers to Catholic priests as "vampires" and "Draculas" and talks of Catholic priests sucking semen out of male children's genitals like vampires suck blood from their victims"

This sad excuse for a religious movement is brainwashing its members to believe that homosexuals and those of other race or religion are going to hell for sinning. They brainwash their children to hate from an early age, and this way of thinking is spreading like a disease through the South. The hate they inspire in people is terrifying. The hatred they exude towards anyone who does not believe what they do.

Please discuss your views on the Westboro Baptist Church. Anyone's views opinions are accepted.

At this point I believe this organization is a lost cause. Maybe we should inflict some of their extremists ideals upon them? Who knows.
I think the best thing we can do is to ignore their existence. They make money off of law suits and publicity. Stop helping them out.

Anyway, here's the shimmy on WBC's actual core; they're attention whores and gangsters. Why do I say gangsters? Because they live to exploit for money. What they do to their own hometown is nothing different from the sort of racketeering that Al Capone and friends were up to. NEVER FORGET THIS! Money is, and always has been the end goal of everything they do. They protest at high profile and high emotion events on the hopes that someone slips, bloodies their nose good, and after that comes the lawsuits against the town and state which makes them bookoo $$$$. There's a reason these assholes are a family of lawyers, keep in mind.

So let me get this straight. These people are ambulance chaser by-proxies who will sue the ******** out of anyone who infringes on their first amendment right and your plan of action is... action? Am I reading this right?
They're a cult. Quite a few of their members grow out of the beliefs and have left the church. They're really annoying at best. Their ideas aren't original, they're mostly getting attention because they are a group positioning themselves as a church, and they actively express their beliefs.
I've been part of a counter protest and the hype over them is exaggerated. They do promote some extreme beliefs, but in protest they pretty much just stand there, hold their signs, and occasionally sing a hymn or say something to passers-by. They ignored us completely. My biggest issue was that they were protesting across the street from the elementary school and I wanted to let them know that while they have the right to be there, no one wants them around our community and especially that close to the children.

If you kill them all, then at least they won't be alive to do this sort of thing. If I had nothing else to live for, I'd do it.

The day Fred Phelps dies, I fully anticipate a protest within eye and ear of the funeral.

Unfortunately, this could be twenty years from now...
