These are protestors. They are also haters. They believe in something so fervently, they'll do anything to force that belief on others, regardless of situation or personal expense.
In this instance, these people are gay haters. They are demonstrating outside of a young soldier's funeral.
Writing those words makes me want to puke.
Imagine mourning the death of your son, then walking outside to see these people with their signs. "GOD HATES YOUR TEARS." "THANK GOD FOR DEAD SOLDIERS."
I know a few gay people. Like NASCAR driving, road construction or the priesthood, it's not a lifestyle I am interested in for myself... but they are people, just the same. What they choose to do in the freedom of their homes is up to them. They are neighbors, friends... one is a step brother. Generally, they seem quite happy and jovial. Gay, if you will.
When will society, politicians and religious zealots get it through their heads that sexual preference, religious belief, the food you eat, who you marry and what you do for a living is a personal choice... and nobody else's concern?
I changed my mind. I hate those protestors.
Toss in Jerry Falwell and Charlie Manson for good measure, I forgot about their sorry asses.
EDIT: Speaking of protesters... now, hundreds are showing up to protest the Da Vinci Code. "This movie offends my Lord..." said one woman.
I think God has proven he has no problem with getting rid of things that offend him. (see: Soddam and Gommorah, Great Flood, et al)
Plus, this is a movie. A work of fiction. Can you not discern the difference? Or perhaps you should run home and check your backyard for animated varmints.
They're real, you know!
