Westboro Baptist Church is Wrong -God is Right!

Friday, November 2nd, 2007

I was greatly amazed, and confused, actually, by the reports of a Baptist Church (is this a Christian organization?) preaching hate (Romans 14:10), openly trying to offend people, and using tactics usually found in Islamic and homosexual circles to get their message across. As a Christian I am appalled at this perversion of the message of Christ. Yes, Christ is "a stone of stumbling and a rock of offense", and, He came to set " brother against brother and father against son", etc., but not in the manner in which the Westboro Baptist Church is promoting.

 The protesters were carrying signs bearing slogans such as "Thank God for dead soldiers" and "God hates fags."

The father of the fallen Marine has been awarded $2.9 million by a jury that found leaders of the fundamentalist Westboro Baptist church had invaded the family's privacy when they picketed the Marine's funeral.

Whatever happened to 1 Corinthians 13? Especially verses 4, 5, and 6? "Does
not act unbecomingly"  "love does not brag and is not arrogant"  "does not rejoice in unrighteousness"  Yet these people are thanking God for the deaths of others. Sounds like Jihad to me.
Certainly the members of this "organization" were acting arrogant about the court’s decision. Is arrogance a trait of love?
