Repentamarillo stand up for what the bible Says.
i don’t believe what some swingers like Mac mead and Cristal Robinson the A.C.L.U president in Amarillo says there life is a lie and swingers lie, so what great thing changed that would make them tell the truth? maybe a truth fairy changed there mind.
Cristal Robinson lies to her own mother about being a swinger then tells Gay people to tell the truth about there life and talk crap about repent Amarillo and support Westboro baptist church.

Hey, Bob. Did you miss the article you actually intended to comment on, or the comment you intended to respond to?

Of course you have every right to believe what you what.

But the fact that Westboro protesters protest funerals of soldiers who die fighting for us, and love to tell us who God hates in song and on sign, tells me what the message actually is. And it is a principle in this nation that everyone, no matter how vile, has a right to representation/advocacy. I don’t always agree with the ACLU. But I support their right to advocate for what they believe is right, just like I support your right to advocate and even respond to you.

To quote from the second link you pasted…

“For us, it is a fundamental First Amendment case,” John Roberts, executive director of the Massachusetts branch of the ACLU, told Boston Globe Wednesday. “It has to do with communications on a website, and material that does not promote any kind of criminal behavior whatsoever.”

This is a principle that could equally apply to the “Amarillo boys” and their website, depending upon your interpretation of the intent of all the military images and the bullet.

And did you notice the headline on your first link?

“ACLU Sues for Anti-Gay Group That Pickets at Troops’ Burials”

This is what the ACLU does. It supports rights: even for the most vile. That’s because, even if they are vile, in this country they still have rights: even if their website seems to suggest that swingers and Gays should have a bullet blown through their heads or attacked by some “army.”

Whatever someone does, or doesn’t, tell their mother is between her and her mother, IMO. And, yes, God. But I think God can handle that himself. Don’t you?

As far as “what the Bible says,” the issue isn’t “their right to stand up,” but how one “stands up:” protesting… or harassing and inciting violence with images of tanks and the sound of a bullet.

Who would Jesus kill?
