Watch for YourTurn normally scheduled to air at the end of Heartland News at Noon on Mondays and Fridays, at the end of Heartland News at 10:00 on Saturday nights, and following The Breakfast Show on Sunday mornings.
Tom Sweeten from Mount Vernon, Illinois:
"I agree with Mike Smythe's ViewPoint regarding responsible advertising. However, news organizations also have a further responsibility regarding the antics of such hate groups as Fred Phelps and the Westboro Baptist Church. The media should refrain from giving these people attention. That is what they crave and without it they will dry up and wither just like a neglected houseplant."
Heartland viewer Paula Pearson:
"I agree 150% with Mike Smythe. I am ashamed the (Westboro Church members) call themselves Baptist. They are misguided individuals. Think of all the good they could be doing in this country if their minds had not been so corrupted by hate…the money they spend fighting and protesting sure could be put to better use, in my opinion."
Margaret Roach from Kennett, Missouri:
"Regarding the NUT who forecast the May 21 date for the Rapture, it is true he has a right to his opinion. I am sure that I read somewhere that (Jesus) would come as a thief in the night and no man would know when…when I saw (Reverend Phelps) on television he looked like a MAN to me…I thank God and the Constitution for having the right (to voice my opinion)."
