God Hates Fags

At least, that’s what they think. The Westboro Baptist Church is protesting across from the convention center, which is where the Southern Baptist Convention is being held this week. They’re the ones with the God Hates Fags website.
I saw them on my way to work this morning. There’s even a little kid out there holding a sign that says “Your Pastor Is A Whore”. I’m really just amazed at how they have managed to hate everyone in the world. Here is a list of people they hate: homosexuals, Catholics, Muslims, Jews, Chinese, Canadians, Mexicans, Swedes, Irish, British, and Americans. Now, the WBC, which calls itself Baptist, hates Southern Baptists.
I just think the WBC is a good case study for people who are trying to grow their church and reach out to people. They’ve got it going on, in my opinion, and I think in the end it will work.
I have one more thought about these picketers. I noticed that there were about 6 protesters and about 9 police officers standing behind them, making sure no one throws a molotov cocktail directly at their eyes and faces. Do you realize how much of a waste of resources this is? There are 9 police officers, earning their well deserved $28k per year, who have been effectively incapacitated and removed from the system in order to make sure no one kills these people.
I guarantee you a crime will be committed against a person somewhere out there today that would not have happened if those extra 9 cops were on patrol.
Of course, there will also be 9 less speeding tickets given out. Maybe the WBC isn’t so bad after all…
Check out this short preview clip of a BBC documentary called The Most Hated Family In America:
“Fags eat feces. That’s a fact, hon.” REALLY? Wow.
Here’s the whole documentary:
God hates sin. No one is without sin. It’s amazing how people choose to believe parts of the bible and completely disregard and actually practice exactly opposite what it says in other parts. You can’t do that.
Oh, well, I guess you can- those entities are called cults.
I actually watched that entire documentary. It took me about 4 hours as I was working. Honestly, I wanted to shut it off after the first 20 min. It made me stomach literally turn.
I suppose the most heartbreaking thing is that those folks really do think they’re doing the right thing. And you know “Gramps” is completely aware of what he is doing/creating. That degree of malevolence is unsettling.
What ever happened to loving your enemies. Of course, I suppose it is a test for true Christians to love their would be allies, WBC members, who behave as enemies. Wolf in sheep’s clothing and all of that.
Thanks for the share. It is interesting and informative. Though, I am now sufficiently disturbed.
I’m planning on doing another post with some further thoughts after I’ve had time to digest what I witnessed this morning. But I will say quickly in response to your comment that I view WBC as the worst possible thing on this planet – as a Christian that is.
Someone who blasphemes purposefully is one thing, but someone that does it in the name of the One they are blaspheming is a whole separate level of evil.
This is great. If God loves everyone that means he loves these people. If God can love these people, I guess that means God can love me too…
I’ve been having a little fun with the WBC’s flawed logic this morning. You can come up with all sorts of fun “facts” when you accept their flawed way of thinking. For instance:
If “fags” eat poo
and “fags” are human
then humans eat poo
If WBC is human
and humans eat poo
then WBC EATS POO TOO!
Oh, and it looks like Shia used to be a member of the WBC:
If members of the WBC call people “fags”
then people who call people “fags” are members of the WBC
and therefore Shia is a member of the WBC!
On that aside, how weak kneed do you have to be to get your feelings hurt by a video of a drunk teenager flinging insults at a friend (not you) to incite them to slap them (Google “Shia faggot video” if you don’t know what I’m talking about)? I guess you would… fit the label… he called his friend… er… ok, so really you are just offended that you are yourself, and you hurt your own feelings…
Ok, my appologies to anyone who searched for “Shia faggot video”. I should have said to search for “Shia Slap” or really, I should have just posted a link:
I’d like to make note that that is a gay blog, and that the idiot blogger proceeds to call Shia a “breeder”, which is the homosexual derogatory term for heterosexual (which means he just called shia the gay equivalent of “fag”).
This is right up this blogs alley!
