The awesome that is Steve Sanchez and Mike Gallegher

“I can take a bullet for 30 minutes”.  Steve Sanchez, a Phoenix talk show host, stated this during an interview about giving his radio show over to the hate group in church’s clothing whose name I refuse to give more internet space to.

This group had planned on picketing the funerals of the victims of the Tucson shooting last week.  Including little Christina Green’s service.  Their reasoning for picketing the funeral of a 9 year old is that she’s Catholic.  Because of Sanchez they gave up on picketing Green’s service.  Because of Mike Gallagher, they aren’t going to picket ANY funerals in Tucson related to the shooting.
Gallagher isn’t just going to set this rabid beast upon his listeners, either.  Part of the deal is that their appointed spokesperson has to debate with Dinesh D'Souza, president of The King's College in New York City.

Both radio hosts believe that by being on a national stage, at least with Gallagher’s audience, this group will be exposed for what they truly are – a pack of hateful, intolerant extremists.

I hope that this happens.  I’ve done a little research on this group, and they are a true example of the evil in man’s soul.  They picket soldier’s funerals, the funerals of congressmen’s wives and performances of “The Laramie Project”.  In case you didn’t know, this is a play depicting Matt Shepard’s tragedy.  Shepard’s funeral is when people watching the news were introduced to these zealots.  They tell those that don’t believe like they do that they are going to burn in hell.  They are everything that I loathe and fear about Christians and those that influence Christians.

This isn’t the first time that Gallagher’s taken one for the team, either.  These guys would’ve picketed the funerals of 6 Amish children and the funerals of the victims at Virginia Tech.  And Gallagher gets criticized for protecting the grieving families by putting this group on his show.

So what’s my point?

Groups like this hide behind the First Amendment like roaches.  If the Supreme Court starts limiting where they can picket and what they can say, We the People start losing more rights.  What they put out there SHOULD be considered “hate speech”; at this time, it is not.  Until their agenda is given the label it needs, until their status as a church is revoked, until the truth behind the founder of this group is brought to the light of day, We the People need to stand up and protect those that can’t  - the grieving parent or spouse, the uncaring dead, and the international audience that is always watching and criticizing.
