My thoughts on the anti-gay Westboro Baptist Church

Ok, here’s the breakdown. Today I have Westboro coming into my territory. They’re protesting at a school where this official posted anti-gay stuff on his Facebook and resigned for it. Here’s the link to

Now your caught up. First off, this guy is wrong. But he has a right to say whatever he wants, as is my right to challenge him.
Now since we have this “church” rolling in, I will tackle them too. This is the group that protests at soldiers funerals. Again, a First Amendment right, but I also believe you better be able to back up what you say and take full responsibility for it.
Debating these people will frustrate you to no end. They’re ideologues, who hide behind their Bibles, cherry-picking verses. Well how about this one;
“When they kept on questioning him, he straightened up and said to them, “If any one of you is without sin, let him be the first to throw a stone at her.” John 8:7
Jesus said that, do you think he’d be proud of this group’s actions. Being strong in your beliefs is an admirable trait but the methods they use are not.
Sure you may or may not agree with the gay lifestyle, that’s your right. But to be fair, before you condemn them, you should look at your own life. You probably live in a way that offends someone, I know I do. Do you really think you have a say in how another adult lives their life, if they’re not physically harming someone? Do you want someone telling YOU how to live your life, or that your going to hell? Live and let live, respect others Right to live their life. Think about that before you judge.
This is as civil as I can be about this group. The other 99.9% of the time bigots make my head explode.

  1. Dead on, My community had to deal with these lunatics when they came to town to tell us that the Virginia Tech Massacre was punishment from God.
