    Here is the hypothetical situation. Sort of a poll.

    You have been falsly charged, found guilty, and are imprisoned.

    The gaurds inform you that instead of giving bibles they are now streaming christian teaching into every cell, 24 hours a day, except when you are sleeping.

    You can not turn it off, and they wont turn it off. You will hear the broadcasts.

    They give you 2 0ptions:

    1) a 24/7 streaming of teaching from the Wesboro church in Kansas.

    2) a 24/7 streaming of Kenneth Copelands voice of victory.

    Which would you pick?

    As for me, I think I would be able to "cherry pick" more profitable stuff from Copeland than then from Westboro.

    I Agree...

    I guess I gotta go with Bro.Tom on this one.....at least the Westboro people will occasionally quote the Bible and they AT LEAST do know what is and isn't sin....and now that I think of it I don't think I've ever heard of them begging for money! For the record.....I think their tactics are despicable. As for Biblical love and compassion....Copeland's "brand" of that is false and Westboro's is non-existent!

    Maybe poking a pencil in each ear isn't actually such a bad option!

    That's like asking would you rather have a root canal or a colonoscopy. I'll take neither.

    And then when they give you "rec" time, you can go picket the guard towers and gates. Your signs could read about how the detention system is for hom........wait, you're in jail, that might not work out so well.:laugh: Sorry, couldn't resist.

    Wouldn't both options be torture under the Geneva convention? I'll take water-boarding.
