You can only ignore ignorant religious people for so long. Despite what Fred Phelps and his family (Westboro Baptist Church) may do or say — none of what they are doing is pleasing to God – in the least. And for the record, I did not call any of them Christians. The fact that this group of monsters is planning to picket Elizabeth Edwards funeral just INFURIATES me beyond words. >:/ So, I have to rely on the words of Jesus to speak for me …
37 Jesus said, “Do not judge others and you will not be judged. Do not condemn others, or it will all come back against you. Forgive others, and you will be forgiven. 38 Give, and you will receive. Your gift will return to you in full – pressed down, shaken together to make room for more, running over, and poured into your lap. The amount you give will determine the amount you get back.”
39 Then Jesus gave the following illustration: “Can one blind person lead another? Won’t they both fall into a ditch?” 40 Students are not greater than their teacher [Jesus]. But the student who is fully trained will become like the teacher. 41 “And why worry about a speck in your friend’s eye when you have a log in your own? 42 How can you think of saying, ‘Friend,let me help you get rid of that speck in your eye,’ when you can’t see past the log in your own eye? Hypocrite! First get rid of the log in your own eye; then you will see well enough to deal with the speck in your friend’s eye” – Luke 6: 37-42
Just how appalling is this group of so-called Christians? Look and see for yourself …
All I can say is that this makes me sick all the way around … Jesus did NOT die on a cross for people to use His name to spread their hatred. Although we’re taught not to judge, I can say, with certainty, that there is a special place in HELL for the members of the Westboro “Baptist” Church cult. Period.
And that’s all I have to say about all of that … Hope everyone is having a great weekend and remember the one commandment Jesus gave us all: Love one another.
Hugs, love and peace,
