Discussion Questions:
Q.1, On a scale of 1 - 10, how f*cking crazy is this sh*t we just showed you?!?!? But nar seriously guys...

1. As a result of the Westboro baptist church's words of hate, there are talks of amending the right to free speech. Also in Nigeria, the Akwa Ibom state has introduced child rights into law, prohibiting the branding of children as witches. When do you think it's appropriate for politics to interfere in religion?

2.Is location a factor in the intensity of religion?

3. Discuss other effects the ideals of the Westboro Baptist church could have on adolescant development.

4. Could the ways in which the WestBoro Baptist church are raising younger members be considered child abuse?
