Follow up to Westboro Baptist protesting Silverton, OR Transgender Mayor

HA! Westboro Baptist Church protesters came in droves to protest the new transgender Mayor of Silverton. OK 4 (FOUR!) protesters showed up including one of the many adult children of the church's founder. They sported signs saying "Fags Are Beasts", "You're Going To Hell", "America Is Doomed", "Your Pastor Is A Whore", "God Hates You", and "Antichrist Obama".

In supprot for the Mayor was 150 citizens of Silverton and nearby places. Signs shown included "Stu Rocks", "Jesus Loves Stu", "Silverton Together United", and "Our Town, Our Mayor".

What's with the hate and militancy Westboro Baptist?

I hate hate, and I believe God does too. I don't hate anything, hate is a very strong word to me, but I do hate hate.

NBA attendance is down overall

Certain markets (Memphis, Philly, Charlotte, and Sacramento) are having problems keeping seats filled. I would kinda guess it watching a couple of games (Sacramento and LA Clippers both losing at home to an injured San Antonio team).

Portland is one of the exceptions, with Oden and Roy playing good (this week for sure) almost every game is sold out. That and being the only Northwest Division in the Northwest nowadays.

The complete list.

"Meh" is offically in the dictionary...what do you think of that?...Meh.

Meh, a word I use myself (thanks Bart!), is in the dictionary!

Westboro Baptist (not Baptist!) Church set to protest Silverton's new Transgender Mayor

This Weekend the Westboro Baptist Church of Topeka, Kansas (The God HATES Fags Church) is gonna be in Portland protesting PSU (gay leader), Sweden Consulate (God HATES Swednen), Germany Consulate (God REALLY hates Germany), and the new Transgender Mayor of Silverton, Stu Rasmussen (Trans Mayor Stu Masmussen - God Hates Fags!), Finland Consulate (God Hates Finland and their filth! 10220 SW Greenburg Rd. Are you kidding me? What could be worse than Finland?)

The quotes are directly from the Westboro Baptist Church site http://www.godhatesfags.com/schedule.html


Let's put some truth in here...GOD'S TRUTH!

1. They misspelled Stu Rasmussen's name.
2. Stu Rasmussen is not a "FAG"...He has a girlfriend of 35 years.
3. "I am a dude," he said in a interview after being elected. "I am a heterosexual male who appears to be a female."
4. Stu Rasmussen is a long time resident of Silverton and owns and runs the movie theater there.
5. The very conservative city of Silverton, a very american city, which is 8-10 miles northeast of where I live, is a city where residents voted him based on policy issues.

OK on the church's site, which looks like it was typed by a junior high student says...

"We are going to come to your little Oregon town to speak some words of truth to this 60 year old pervert. Nobody else will just tell him to STOP THAT!"

Pervert? I will tell you what a pervert is. Salem Police arrested a "perveret" in the parking lot at my work a few weeks ago. He was in his truck, watching people, making notes, and had his pants pulled down. In his little cooler was not food but porn. That's a pervert, spanking it in a public parking lot.

The new mayor has never done anything perverted in public. Usually you'll see him outside his theater just hanging out talking to the citizens of Silverton.

Tell him to stop what exactly?

"Everyone else (i.e. besides Westboro Baptist Church) despises him so much that they will gladly watch him morph himself into a snaggle-toothed old witch because they know they are all guilty of the same or worse sins."

I don't despise him, I don't know anyone else that does.
Same or worse sins? Doesn't the Bible say a sin is a sin in God's eyes?
Even if he was a snaggle-toothed old witch, he probably still be voted mayor because he loves (that's a big word Westboro Baptist) his city.

"Leviticus 19:17 Thou shalt not hate thy brother in thine heart: thou shalt in any wise rebuke thy neighbour, and not suffer sin upon him. 18 Thou shalt not avenge, nor bear any grudge against the children of thy people, but thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself: I am the LORD. You won't do this duty, but we will. AMEN!"

Sounds like the church needs to follow the "Love (THERE IS THAT WORD AGAIN) thy Neighbor" passage.

What could be worse than Finland? Being a member of the Westboro Baptist (again, not a Baptist) Church of Topeka, KS?

>Our gas price here in Virginia is $1.95.


McCain or Obama? Stay up to date on the latest from the campaign trail with AOL News.

Circuit Chity Closes 155 stores...Pacific Northwest spared.

The link above in the title shows the list of what Circuit Schity stores are closing 12/30 acorss the US. Only one in the Northwest is closing, which is a surprise to me. The store here in town opened in February of this year, after the old store closed after the holidays. The new store was so new that even the employees were new! That turned me off. I'm sure they fired all the old employees and hired new ones at lower wages. Some answers I got at the new store when I was looking for merchandise affirmed this belief. Haven't been there in months now.

At Best Buy I know where the new release movies and music are on street day when I walk into the store. They are not still in boxes or hiding on the back bottom of the New Release fixture.

Oh yeah the old building? Still abadoned, still empty. Nice way to waste money.

Thieves steal 300 gallons of gas

So it's a slow news night and the top story on the local FOX news channel is about 300 gallons of (cheap) gas getting stolen, but how much is 300 gallons news guy? Click on the link to see the video and 30-35 seconds in he'll explain it to you.

(I would of posted the video here but it started for me right away when I previewed this post. So just clicky.)

If you continue watching the video he even tells you how much money the gas station owner lost. Glad it didn't happen in June!
