    The Westboro Baptist Church is again raising its ugle head in my natiave state of WV. Several of us were wondering just where Westboro Baptist Church gets its funding, as it is not tax-exempt. Could you fill us in on this question. They have to be getting $$$$ somewhere – but WHERE? It seems to be a contradiction in terms – no Baptist Church we are aware of us contorts Christianity like WBC does. Thanks.

    I must have to say, that I feel a little safer knowing that there is a group out there for our brothers and sisters who decided get into law enforcment to remind them of their oath. If more officers would keep that in mind, maybe there wouldn’t be so much police brutality.

    As always, thank you both for your courage and dedication. You are correct in expressing that we need to be alarmed about the rise in extremism among the anti-government groups.

    Your scholarly examination of the phenomena is a refreshing, if frightening, departure from all the screaming and name-calling.

    finally real america addressing real issues. money jobs easy credit ignorance veiled. much of the veil removed no more. many other countries have experienced the same. fed up with education in america in 2001 went to anther country and bought textbooks to educate. surprised to find so many of society’s social economical political racial issues taught addressed at the kindergargten level. for the adults. we can’t be afaid. seeing lots of shaved heads in my neighborhood. told children to go out in groups be home as soon as darkness sets no extravagance in public. avoid giving them a forum or shedding light but paying attention at all times. this just didn’t happen overnight. conditions just right at this time. we can’t be afraid.
