Westboro Baptist to Protest F1 race

These crackpots are really off their rocker with this shit

Quote:
As if hosting an international auto race isn’t challenging enough, Austin and Travis County officials may have to deal with a protest by a fringe religious group that thinks the road to Hell is paved with car races, U.S. troops and many other aspects of modern life.

Members of the Kansas-based Westboro Baptist Church say they plan to picket Circuit of the Americas from 8:30 to 11 a.m. Sunday, hours before the U.S. Grand Prix is scheduled to start, according to the group’s website. The church is widely considered to be a hate group, espousing anti-gay views.

The group also famously pickets the funerals of U.S. troops to protest the presence of gays in the military. The group often announces protests but then few, if any, members show up.

haha......too bad Westboro doesn't come to a Talladega race. 80,000 drunk rednecks would be more than happy to welcome them properly.

It only takes one Martyr to make an example of them. I could care less where they protest, as long as it's not at a soldiers funeral. That's unforgivable.

Thats my only problem with them, I could give two shits less that they want to protest a race, the soldiers funerals is unacceptable.

Nope. Welcome to the land of the free, the loonier you are, the more free you are to impose on others.
