Somebody needs to get a life. Or better yet, realise that local stereotypes are not international stereotypes.

So... The father of a U.S. Marine has been ordered to pay $16,000+ in legal costs to the Westboro Baptist Church, after unsuccessfully suing them for spoiling his son's funeral with their "God hates fags" posters etc. etc.

I guess this will only encourage them to do it more :(

I mean i know it's all about free speech but it's like the court affirmed a constitutional right to slag off at people at their funerals! isn't that going too far? and don't these people have any dignity?

Sadly, they are doing what they believe to be God's work. Even sadder, they apparently didn't read their Bibles very thoroughly. Even sadder, to my mind, is that they are not only ruining a funeral (which ticks me off) they are dragging Christianity's name through the mud.

A more accurate sign for them to carry might be:

"God finds homosexual acts detestable, but he still loves everybody no matter what"

Now that is Biblical.

A more Biblical thing for them to do would be to express God's love for people by not ruining the family's service of rememberance for their son, dammit.

Sorry, I get annoyed by idiots like that.

What amazes me is that the car that did it appears undamaged.

Acctualy not so bizzare. Our state is obliged to pay damages if bear, wolf or lynx killes livestock or does damage. As they are on protected species list they are goverment/state responsibility and as such damage is paid by the state (trust me no sheep is as expensive as one killed by bear of a wolf). Hell we even had 2 cases when a bear vandered into a capital city. First one was killed by police after being a bit agressive but second one had to be sedated not killed mind you and later released with a radio tag. In this case it was killed by austrian wild hunters immediatly after crossing Slovene-Austrian border - the bastards.

What is bizzare is that after farmer playing turbo-folk music bear remained in 100km radious of the beehives :mrgreen: must have been deaf or crazy

An update on the case of Austrian bear murder. The guy was cought by Austrian police after a good forensics work done by Austrian police. BTW bears are protected species in Austria too but they have a huge poaching problem (not enough control over weaponary) and AFAIK only 5-10 bears still live in entire Austria comparing to esctimated 360+ bears in 2007 in Slovenia. Hell tour bears even have their own web page here:
