Ophelia continues the false threat narrative with an 'update'http://freethoughtblogs.com/butterflies ... p-trouble/[ img ]
Here's the deal. I have a very good relationship with the Westboro Baptist Church. I have Steve Drain's personal phone number. He returns my messages. He even contacts me with story ideas. I have published many articles concerning Westboro when I had written for Examiner.com (https://www.google.com/#sclient=psy-ab& ... 66&bih=643
This is no threat, but a simple demonstration of the lack of my willingness to have WBC protest the event. If I wanted to really troll the event, again, I can have that arranged by having WBC attend...but I have not and will not. ...and that goes for any event whether it be the local gay pride festival I attend annually, military events, local funerals, etc. I haven't called upon WBC to be my personal army and really have no interest.

It's only OK when FTB does it, though.
Karla's tweet has been 'dead' and now resurrected by FTB.
I wonder...if WBC protests or attends, is it Karla's fault? Or maybe PZ and Ophelia's fault for resurrecting a tweet, mentioning WBC, etc? Anyway, as Karla says, WISCFI is a public event. WBC does as they will and does not need the hand of Karla (or Justin) to draw them to an event they probably already knew about anyway.
