It's Fred Phelps, big surprise. He's insane, and so are his brainwashed followers (mostly his family). He's the leader of a cult, not a church.

There is an earlier thread, this subject . . . .

But you are exactly correct.

Some nut job church group is out there protesting at GIs funerals about Gays, the Military, etc.

From the Source: The Rev. Fred Phelps, founder of Westboro Baptist in Kansas, contends that American soldiers are being killed in Iraq as vengeance from God for protecting a country that harbors gays. The church, which is not affiliated with a larger denomination, is made up mostly of Phelps' children, grandchildren and in-laws

Abhorable. . . .

They won't show up in ANC . . . and it WON'T be because of airfare . . . like a ferw A-Netters . . . they haven't the gut to show up where there might be - shall I say - "resistance" to their cause.

Someone I know showed up a while back at one of Phelps' demonstrations to photograph them and kept asking the guys to turn around so he could get better shots of their cute inbred asses.

Totally unnerved them.

I'm sorry, did I just get a post deleted from this thread? Maybe so, but would be my first, hence my confusion. Either way, I'll clean it up a bit.

They actually protested in Lexington, MA, which is a neighboring town of mine. To me, that's pretty much equivalent to them being on my own property. The suburbs of Boston where I live have their rivalries, but they're fairly small towns (under 30,000 generally), and I don't think anyone likes to see this kind of stuff around.

I really wish I had been there to see and react.

And it didn't take protesting at a soldier's funeral for me to figure that one out.

These people are not Christians in any way. Real Christians would be there in silence in support of the family for their loss of their soldier family member. Real Christians would encouage all people to reduce their oil use to hense reduce the need for our soldiers to be in the middle east to keep control of access to oil from there for the oil guzzling USA. It's too bad a couple hundred locals didn't turn out to outnumber these idiots and drown out their perverse protests.

This so disgusting I almost can not believe. I am not very religious, but as I understand Christianity, God loves everybody. No matter what opinion you have about homosexuality, to say [quote]"Good hates fags"[end quote] is not Christian at all, they have no idea about the Christianity. They are so hypercritical criminals. If and when God hated somebody I think he would hate such people who tell this disgusting rubbish in his name.

Well, you were led to believe correctly. However, then you have clowns like this one and Robertson who come along and fuck up everything else for the rest of us. Makes me wish their father's had pulled out, or their mother's had swallowed.

On a related note...is there really a difference between a cult and a church?

It's easy to become enraged by these people, Cba, but you'll find it much more satisfying to laugh at them and write them off as being an inconsequential fluke of genetics. They're like a mosquito - annoying but ultimately pathetic.

I speak for only myself as a gay man:

I was raised Christian. I was taught we are all sinners. I was also taught that by doing good works and helping others, whoever they may be, that would help plead my case when my time comes and God is judging me, and, if everyone takes part, would make this world a little more tolerable. I was also taught that God is the only one who can judge anyone. I was taught all 10 commandments are important but the greatest of them all is: Love Thy Neighbor as told in the parable of the good Samaritan.

I wonder if Fred Phelps and his followers have ever read the Bible.

GO CANUCKS!!

"If they were protesting the government, I might even join them," Danny Cotton, 56, said amid cries of "get out of our town" and "get out of our country."

"But for them to come during the worst time for this family - it's just wrong."



I found that quote to be the highlight of the article, and somewhat ironic.

I read this a couple days ago and I think its total bullshit. These fundamental Christians are on the same level as the fundamental Muslim extremists that execute terrorist attacks. What they are doing is totally wrong and I wish a few of us A-Netters could attend one of their events so we could give them a piece of our minds. Sadly it doesent surprise me that Phelps affiliates himself with the Baptist faith.

I am Methodist and I have never been taught hate and bigotry. We teach love, tolerance, and unity. I know some Christian extremists tell me I am going to Hell for being Methodist. Sad.

That's a bunch of BS. You don't even read Lew Rockwell's writings, or those of his 150 contributers. How would you know? Typical bandwagon basher.

You know very well that he and his followers are not Christian fundamentalists. They're nuts who abuse the Christian faith to pursue their own ends. They will get their just reward when they die. You know that real Christians couldn't manage to do the horrible things that they do.
