….. Westborough Baptist Church looses.
Which is not very surprising, at all.
The usual madness that is the Fred Phelp’s clan descended onto Comic Con, USA, only to be faced by a protest held in response. With people holding signs like “Is this thing on?”, and “Odin is God”. The article doesn’t record the response of the Phelps’, but I hope that one day they will, themselves, see the light, and stop their hate-spewing nonsense. It is admirable that they are protected under the Free Speech rules, and so they should be, no matter how distasteful most people find them to be. However, it is also nice when those same rules are used to make the point that most people think them to be distasteful.

For those regular readers of this blog, you will note that two posts of links one after another normally means that Black Xanthus has spent far too much time playing with Stumble. This is actually one I found by trying to work out what kind of geek I’m going to become. There is a geekery for most subjects, Physics, Maths, Philosophy, so I guessed that there would be one for Theology. I’ve yet to find it as I got distracted by the blog of a Curate.
It’s labelled, simply, “Curates Blog”. Like me he seems to be chatting to the world. Also, like me, there don’t appear to be many people commenting on his blog, but I would presume he has a few readers. His articles, at least the first page, seem to be fairly straight forward and simply. They talk more about Theology than this blog currently does, but then, he’s a Curate, so it’s to be expected.
I’m going to put it here and try to remember to keep an eye on the blog. It may prove useful in the future.
