The small Oregon city of Silverton rebuffed the over-stated opinions of the members of the Westboro Baptist Church of Topeka, Kansas, on November 24, 2008. Silverton has just elected, and gives community support to, a person who does not fit in the standard Silverton mode of sexuality.
This Baptist group previously came to Oregon to assert their opinions at the funeral of Navy Seal, Marc Lee, a man killed in action in Iraq.
The Westboro Baptist Church, Topeka, Kansas, is a family-operated church known to hold strong opinions.
The Doser has occasionally held his thoughts and beliefs firmly, perhaps too firmly, but he realizes they are only opinions. He would not try to force them on others beyond attempts to convince.
... and, on a more political note......
Good idea: (bush) could invite O'Bama to provide an agenda of matters, or slate of appointees, that (bush) could choose to select before retiring. (If he weren't so busy doing his exit-trashing.) The Doser would consider referring to him with an 11 point font for that rather than the usual nine point font.
