Just when I thought I couldn't hate these people any more. . .

So, the anti-choice protesters in Mississippi got smacked down by a judge when they asked for a restraining order because they didn't like the way the police were treating them. Undeterred, they changed tactics. And what, pray tell, did they do?

Members of Operation Save America spread out through the capital city, targeting not only the Jackson Women’s Health Organization but Millsaps College, a high school, the Jackson Police Department and The Clarion-Ledger newspaper among almost two dozen locations.

Because, clearly, college and high school students are a danger. Especially when they're, you know, in class and all. And that newspaper? Ha! Clearly, a bastion of Satanic urges. Don't believe me?

The group’s leader, the Rev. Philip “Flip” Benham, said Wednesday’s targets represent “the gates of hell” and influential areas in the city.

The gates of hell. Seriously? I thought the gates of hell were located in Washington D.C. Something about a Texas Fratboy moving in. Oh well. What do I know? I'm just a woman.

But was that enough protesting? No, indeed. There's more!

The group burned a copy of the Islamic holy book, the Quran, during a gathering Tuesday night at the Making Jesus Real church in Pearl.
“We deal with all the issues we possibly can because they are different manifestations covering the same fist, the fist of the devil,” Benham said when asked what the Quran has to do with the abortion issue.

That's right, everything goes back to those damned Muslims. Muslims, liberals and sex-having-no-shame-feeling women. So long as they're consistent.

There are things I'd like to say about these people, but really, don't they speak for themselves? The protests in Mississippi still have four days left. Wonder what else they can come up with? They've already had a bomb threat and a false police report of a fetus being disposed of in a frigging bank, for gods sake. And they wonder why they're being arrested?

Oh, how I would love to find a way to shut them up. Free country, gotta remember it's a free country. Gotta remember that if we have rights, they gotta have rights. But, it's really, really difficult.

Oh, I have no problem with them making their voices heard. What I have a problem with is their insistance they get specials treatment. If you break the law, you get arrested. If the police tell you that the signs you're bringing are not allowed, because they're so graphic they're offensive, well...you go get different signs. If you're calling the police and falsely reporting a fetus is in a goddamn bank? You get arrested. It's really simple. But they're claiming they're being harrassed by the police when the cops are just doing their jobs. That's what I can't stand about these people. They can't just show up and protest and play by the rules. No, they want to demand the rules be changed, but only for them. It doesn't work that way.
