my life

i’m a warriors fan and enjoying their recent success after watching years of deplorable success with players like alton lister and kevin pritchard. i have my second electric car. i recently put a deposit in for the new tesla model 3 car but was disappointed at the interior and potential for problems since it’s the first model year of that car. i grew up near my parents and my kids grew up near their great-grandparents which is fantastic because i grew up far from extended family.

bbc look at the westboro baptist church

this is a great bbc documentary covering the westboro baptist church based in topeka, kansas. this is the cult-ish christian group who pickets at fallen iraqi war veteran funeral services, somehow believing that jesus is punishing america for accepting homosexuality by killing our soliders as retribution. yeah, that makes total sense.

while their speech and opinions are protected by free speech, it just seems like the wrong times to broadcast their message. why not just try to attract members to their church using more conventional methods. if their ideas had merit, more people would take part in their cause. there are very few people who agree with what they are into. most of the “members” of the church actually consist of the descendants of the church patriarch, who have obviously been brainwashed into keeping his ideology alive.
