Interestingly enough the UK have had them banned from entering the county since 2009 because they were deemed to be "engaged in unacceptable behaviour by inciting hatred against a number of communities".

That's not all. An alliance of six UK religious groups (the Baptist Union of Great Britain, Evangelical Alliance UK, Faithworks, Methodist Church of Great Britain, United Reformed Church and Bible Society-funded thinktank Theos) made a joint statement condemning the activities of the Westboro Baptist Church saying, "We do not share Westboro's hatred of lesbian and gay people. We believe that God loves all, irrespective of sexual orientation, and we unreservedly stand against their message of hate toward those communities."

Canada is not alone in seeing what absolutely disgusting human beings the people of that church are and I hope to god that those bastards never set foot in either of our countries whilst they're still spewing their ignorance from every orifice.

But if they're barred from pretty much every major country but ours, does that mean we're stuck with them!?

I don't mean to sound harsh but... Canada, The USA and the UK are not the only major countries in the world and, to my knowledge, it is only the UK and Canada that they are not allowed in. Australia, China, Japan, France, Germany, Sweden... there are plenty of places to send them.

Personally I'd send them to Lybia and see how long they last (sort of like mixing black comedy with reality T.V... would be hilarious).

That wasn't even a tiny bit harsh. It was downright fair.
Anyhow, I guess I just assumed they had become malevolently outspoken enough to get broad range of international attention. Personally, I would love to see how they'd hold up if they were all spontaneously transported to somewhere like S.Sudan.

Sorry, I know. But if you open your sentence with an apology then people tend to be more open to the things you have to say. You start the conversation as a sympathetic party who is concerned about the feelings of the person with whom you are talking. People are more inclined to listen to you as you have opened up the conversation with kindness.

It is basic psychology. The right word in the right place can change the way people look at you and the things you say.

A good example is what it would be like if the apology was at the end of the sentence rather than the beginning. From a psychological standpoint it seems more like a last-minute protection of yourself than it does an attempt to save the feelings of another.

Granted, all that goes to **** the moment you start explaining the psychology behind it because once people know that you can manipulate their feelings towards you they become more wary of you because you have suddenly become something of a threat.

E.G. Meaningful physical contact someone for more than 20 seconds makes them trust you more and makes them want to hear the things you say more. It is because of chemicals in the brain that are built into you as a reactionary facility to help strengthen long-term (and especially intimate) relationships.

I hug people a lot and offer lots of piggybacks (sometimes I get a few as well). When you know how the brain works, suddenly a simple conversation can make you feel like a ******* evil genius, pulling the strings from behind the scenes and manipulating people without them ever knowing it.

And don't worry, dude. ^_^ World's a big place and most governments just don't consider the WBC their problem. There are a few that have threatened to ban them over planned protests within their borders but as the protests were not followed through the bans never happened.

Well, well, well. Looks like somebody got good marks in Communications class. Thanks for taking the time to type all of that out. I have sincerely enjoyed this intellectual conversation.

Never took a class. I learned all this from research, observation and conversations with psychologists.

It was a fortunate biproduct of my wish to learn more about human character for the sake of creative writing. I too have enjoyed the conversation.

Love the hazard symbol logo btw.

That's an interesting coincidence. I've always been partial to learning about human character as well and I've never really had any education on the subject either. Yet, I've been told that I'm talented when it comes to creative writing(not that I entirely agree). I'd love to discuss it with you some other time though, if I may.

Also, correct me if I'm wrong but is not the entirety of north America comprised of simply... Canada and the USA? So is it not easier to just say "North America Approves"?
