What Have The Westboro People Done To This Child?
March 8, 2016

There is something seriously wrong with this child. He needs medical help. But because he is somehow related to the loony-tunes Phelps family of Westboro Baptist Church fame, it's unlikely to happen.

Michael Schatz:

This is what a brainwashed child looks like. The Westboro Baptist Church, which is based in Topeka, Kansas, and started by the now deceased Fred Phelps, specializes in suing municipalities that infringe on its First Amendment rights. Unfortunately, that same First Amendment protects their perverse religious beliefs, and allows them to tote this child around like a set prop, as they spew their hatred.

Kansas’ Department for Children and Families may not be able to remove this child based on his parents’ religious beliefs, but surely there is a more constitutionally viable reason to stop these hate mongers from raising children.

Forget about their religious beliefs or whether he's brainwashed or not. Those dark circles around his eyes could indicate fatigue or allergies or excessive sun exposure or something else less obvious. I don't care what the hell religion they are. That kid needs a doctor and he needs one fast!

The photo was taken while he was used, as the Phelps family uses everyone in their family, to spread a little hate among the people. Hate can do terrible things to a person.
