    Default Westboro Baptist Church

    I guess I made the mistake of posting a comment on You Tube about the Westboro Baptist Church deal. I have found some real atheists and dogmatics out there. I do not agree with this church and it makes me so sad that they would give true christians a bad name. Is there anyone out there that agrees with me?

    I think Satan has this Church in his grasp. and he is giving Christianity a bad name!

    Don't get me wrong, I've been a Christian for many years, but this group totally blew me away! It's easier to deal with an athiest than the people who truly believe what they preach.

    No offence... but christianity over the years has given itself a pretty bad name without their help. But those guys are completely insane... really of the wall. And it depends on the Atheist.

    I had someone quoting only the scriptures that backed up their beliefs and he/she kept referring to "your god". Of course I made the mistake of trying to debate them and I know I shouldn't, but it's scary that they will lead people this way. I just want to be a voice against these one verse people that twist the bible. Geez!

    He/she claimed our country (US) was not built on any one particular God. Thank you for listening. It just got me really stirred up.

    Jesus said I did not come to judge the world. I came to save it. Westboro Baptist comes to judge the world. thinking it will save the world. They have it backwards.

    They came to my stepson's high school. A bunch of churches in my area picketed them, it was awesome!

    Supposedly there are lesbian cheerleaders. so some idiot wrote them and asked them to come protest. Instead of showing love, they feel we must show hate. Thank God Christ did not do that when he was on Earth. Imagine of Christ protested the drunks, prostitutes and sinners instead of loving them!!

    You know you're doing it wrong when the KKK says you're being intolerant.

    These people get my blood boiling. They stand outside of military funerals stating that the only good soldier is a dead one. How can any human being be so cruel. How do they get away with it. It's so sad.

    It is called pharaseeism. The jewish religious leaders did the same, and they crucified Christ. I venture to say this Church would do the same if Christ were here today. Because he hung out with sinners.

    I hate to disappear so soon, but I have much work to do. Thank you all. It really helps when you have other TRUE Christians to vent to for advice, or calming down I should say. That's why I love the church. We are all part of the body of Christ. God Bless you all! I will be back though.

    When we elected female president in our country, this church was informed that our new president is a lesbian (which she definitely isn't). So they contacted the Finnish embassy and applied for visa to come and have a demonstration in front of the presidential palace in Helsinki. They said that if they are denied the visa they will file a complaint... I think it was to the United Nations or to the Hague... I'm not sure which one.

    Anyway, the reply they got was that as American citizens they can come and stay in Finland for 3 months without visa, they can also hold a demonstration but they need a permission for that from the local police station, but that shouldn't really be a problem.

    Then we waited and waited, but the Westboro Baptists never showed up. We were kind of disappointed, many of us wanted to go and see their show and have a few good laughs.

    Fred Phelps is a false teacher.

    1 But there were also false prophets among the people, even as there will be false teachers among you, who will secretly bring in destructive heresies, even denying the Lord who bought them, and bring on themselves swift destruction. (2 Peter 2:1)

    12 But these, like natural brute beasts made to be caught and destroyed, speak evil of the things they do not understand, and will utterly perish in their own corruption, (2 Peter 2:12)

    They're just real life trolling. Listen to any interview with them. You can hear the delight in their voice from all the negative reactions.
