Submitted because I've had it with them. Let's take a look at my problems with them:
These people are actually guilty of blasphemy if you listen to what they say. They claim to be a Christian church, yet they have stated that nobody in America can be saved and that people are doomed to hell. Not possible according to the gospels. Contradiction numero uno!
"God hates fags". That statement should stop at "God hates". God can't hate anyone. It's not in His ABILITY. Why? God can't disobey His own law or contradict Himself, or else he wouldn't be God. Contradiction #2.
The little kids are NOT taught the ways of the Lord. The bible says that [quote] "Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it." (Proverbs 22:6) Yet if you listen to the clips from what the little kids say, they have no idea what they're talking about. They don't get it. They've just been taught a montra: "God hates fags. God hates fags. God hates fags." They don't have understanding of the scriptures. That's contradiction numero tres.
The leader of that monstrosity, Fred Phelps, abused his kids before he became a psycho preacher. Two of his former kids or nephews or whatever can attest to that, and have done so by recording, which I've listened to. That's not biblical. Actually, Fred Phelps should be in jail for what he had done to his kids. He took leather straps, belts I think, and fashioned them like whips, and he'd beat his kids until they were half dead or bloody and screaming on the ground.
They say that the reason soldiers are dying is because of the "fags". Here's the problem, though. They say that this is all new. Wait. So if that's true, how is it that 25,000 soldiers died in the revolution, 12,000 died in the war of 1812, and in probably the most justified war in world history, world war II, 600,000 Americans died? That's not even biblical, that's just stupidity and Westburo's lack of knowledge.
"Fag's die; God laughs". Really? So, the verse where God says, and this is in the OLD TESTAMENT, "I do not delight in the spilling of blood nor the sacrifice of animals" is non-existent? God's not exactly laughing at death, you idiot.
Then there's the trampling of the American flag, the parodies of the national anthem, and so on which are the last straw. That's just sick business. He should be grateful that he lives in this nation under God
where he can protest freely.
Fred Phelps praised Saddam Hussein for Saddam's hatred of homosexuals. However, when Saddam was killed, Phelps was heard saying that Saddam "would go to hell". He changed his opinion quite fast.
Bottom line, this fool is either crazy or ignorant. He's a fascist in disguise of a Christian!
He can wave the bible around all he wants, but when it comes down to it, he hates God and the bible! He's a serpent, a vile serpent who is just hiding behind the name of Whom he claims to worship. He may just be inspired by Satan.
Rant over. Wow, I put more effort into that than the stamp itself.
One last thing- Christians, be against homosexuality, but don't be like this loser from Westburo Baptist Church, and don't hate these people, because some, maybe not all, but some, homosexuals are nice people. Look- I am against our president, but I'd never dream about harming him or killing him, that's what I mean.
If we're to be the salt of the Earth, we should protest the horrors done to Christians, Muslims, and Jews that go on all over the world. That's a better use of our- no, God's time, than what this loser does.
SO, MY VERDICT. Westburo Baptist Church- Winner or Loser?
