Everyone here will tell you to dump him now. Do NOT dump him. Those people are a special kind of insane, and you have a unique opportunity to find out why. And then you can sabotage the shit out of them.

Here is what you do. You go to the bank and get about ten dollars in quarters. Then while he is near you, throw them everywhere. Once he is distracted, RUN FOR YOUR EVER LIVING LIFE AND NEVER TURN BACK.

Personally, though I wouldn't date a WBC member I find their entire operation quite laughable! I mean, do they seriously think they're going to get people to convert by picketing? They couldn't even get their fucking kids to listen to them! It's only a matter of time before those old fuckers die out or get lynched and everyone forgets about them...

43 - That's very ignorant of you. They picket at public events so they can make the news. When seen on the news, people with similar views are drawn to them. That is why they receive a flow of new members. They're not converting, only publicizing.

The West Burrow Cult doesn't allow new members. You have to marry into the family and they all live on the same piece of land. Hence being a cult. Nor are they real followers of God and give all believers a bad reputation. Regardless of other people's beliefs I would never tell someone God hates them or who they are because I don't have any right to judge anyone. Those animals are worse than scum and abuse the laws of this great country. Drop that guy like a bag of weed.

You do realize that technically every religion is a cult, right #106?

I will forever not like them. After everything they have said and done to my community. When the 19 hotshots died and they said God sent the fire to burn them. Or how they say God kills all the soldiers and they'll burn in hell.... No. I can not stand them. Not will I ever try to understand or like them. They do not deserve it.

Run, do not walk away from that! Men are like buses. Another one will come along in a few minutes. Wait for one without all the baggage.

JThumbs up to you Doc. Anyone who thumbs you down again is clearly a supporter of that "church", if you can even call it that. Even overbearing pacifists are more respectful than those pricks are. Hell, I'd rather have a Witness come to my door than someone from Westboro and we all know how annoying they can be (no offense intended but you know it's true).

At least they are a real church.

Actually an amazing idea. I don't know why, maybe because Westboro made me really angry but I started watching a lot of their interviews and protests as well as reading up on them and I never could understand their way of thinking. I'm 100% straight but I'm a strong supporter of gay rights, feminism (to a certain extent; I'm not a bra burner and I don't want female superiority) and anti-racism and to see the closed-minded mentality and downright hatred that these people have infuriates me. #34 I heard about him. Never got why that happened given that he went into the interview (like most other reporters) thinking they were insane. Anyways, I say go for the sabotage.

Very bad idea there all lawyers and very good manipulators and brainwashers the OP should stay away

That term came about because there were people who did feel that women should be put over men, and they resorted to drastic measures in order to "help" their cause. So technically a feminist is someone who would take such actions #69.

21 yeah a real church will tell you that you are going to hell if you die in the army.

Eh -- it's not your job to fix the world. Dump the moron and move on with your life.

I watched them a little while ago- he does such a great job with his documentaries. It was crazy how one of the members of the church is actually an former bbc reporter... I really wonder how they convinced him to join them.

#69: I know but I've come to realize that some people have very firm opinions on feminism so I prefer to explain that I'm not some extremist. Should have clarified, that's on me! :)

Their picketing is often pointless or incredibly inconsiderate. Fuck them.

To all those downvoteing me, I was referring to the Witnesses being a real church.

They would probably sue her if she tried to sabotage them. These people are even more sue-happy than the "Church" of Scientology. There are some things that should be automatic one-strike-you're-out dumping offenses, and supporting a cult like this is one.

I totally agree. My fathers are homosexual and I used to get shit for it in middle school - heck, I even got a C- from my pre-algebra teacher in 6th grade because of it. People like them make my blood boil - I even wrote a short story starring Fred Phelps and his wife. I know it's a bit off-topic, but I hope this excerpt brings a smile to people's faces: '"The only good you’re ever going to do for the world is what I’m about to help you with – broadcasting a message,” Logan told him. “What message? I’ll do anything! Just-just let me live!” Fred begged. The pitiful wails of the man made Logan cringe. “I’m afraid I can’t do that, Phelps. The message is going to be your carcass!” Logan said, grabbing Fred by the neck and tossing him into a display case of vases. Blood poured out of Phelps’ nose and gashes appeared along his face from the shards of shattered glass. He tried to crawl away, but his body wouldn’t budge. All he could do is howl in pain as Logan picked him up by the neck once more. Logan drew one of his daggers, slicing along the outside of Fred’s leg. He quickly flicked the blade in the other direction, rending flesh as the blade traveled through the man’s torso. Logan proceeded to pull out the second dagger, stabbing it deep into Phelps’ stomach. He heard a muffled gurgling noise as blood built up in Fred’s mouth, pouring out onto the floor. To make sure the first step was finished, Logan slit the man’s throat, leaving him to collapse in a pool of his own blood.'

I wouldn't want him to die that way or by any other sort of violence; he'd be a martyr. I'd rather he go for the old massive heart attack or stroke that drops him in his tracks. But apparently neither god nor the devil want to claim him, so he lives on. And yeah, that's really fucking disturbing.

Don't think sabotaging them would be that easy. Like you said... a special kind of insane. They're like the Hills Have Eyes family... just a whole lot bigger. O_o

By  chloem103  |  9

How did you not figure that out sooner? Just because they make their beliefs so well known I assume that he would be flamboyant too..

By  nickn426  |  14

Sorry to here that! Of you really like him I'm sure you can work something out.

A bit sad that this is thumbed down. Agreeing with those insane people doesn't mean the boy is completely bad. As long as OP respects his beliefs and he's respectful of hers, then there's a chance they could work. You can have some insane beliefs and still be respectful of others regardless of what church you support. Just like how some Christians don't believe homosexuality is right but still show respect and believe everyone should be equal because they don't believe it's right to force their beliefs onto others.

Unfortunately I seriously doubt that they'll be able to figure things out. It's one thing if your partner just has a different religion than you... but in this case, what her boyfriend believes probably completely contradicts her own sense of morals (hence why she wrote the fml)... I don't think she should have to respect someone who supports a belief which seriously hurt others.
