A space to post my thoughts and musings about anything. This includes but is not limited to community, politics, current events, dating, GLBTQ issues, favorite things, and stuff that would make your dead relatives blush. I am not afraid to go there, as some can attest.

This Ain't Right...

So a fence and a garage nearly burned down at the Westboro Baptist Church (Home of everyone's favorite homophobe, Fred Phelps), and while it could have been accidental, it could have also been arson.

If it was arson, I don't agree with it. Just because you dislike a person or an organization (or maybe you think the building is fugly) does not give you the right to set their property on fire. What is to stop someone from setting a GLBT-friendly church on fire in retaliation for this?

The worst is seeing comments from folks that they're going to be celebrating that this happened. This is not something to celebrate people. How would you like it if they burned down your place?

I hope it wasn't arson...
