This just sickens me. Search “Westboro Baptist Church” on Google Images, and this is the first image that comes up. A picture of three children, probably no older than 13, holding up hateful and absolutely awful signs telling how God did terrible things to our nation to prove a point.
Quoted below is WBC’s “Compendium of Bible Truth on Fags:”
Sodomites are wicked & sinners before the Lord exceedingly (Gen.13:13), are violent & doom nations (Gen. 19:1-25; Jgs. 19), are abominable to God (Lev. 18:22), are worthy of death for their vile sex practices (Lev. 20:13; Rom. 1:32), are called dogs as filthy, impudent & libidinous (Deut. 23:17,18; Mat. 7:6;Phil. 3:2), produce in society mass intoxication from their wine made from grapes of gall from the vine of Sodom & fields of Gomorrah, poisoning society’s mores with the poison of dragons & the cruel venom of asps (Deut. 32:32,33), show their sin & shame on their countenance (Isa. 3:9), are shameless & unable to blush (Jer. 6:15), workers of iniquity (Psa. 5:5), liars & murderers (Jn. 8:44), filthy & lawless (2 Pet. 2:7,8), natural brute beasts (2 Pet. 2:12), are likened unto dogs eating their own vomit, sows wallowing in their own feces (2 Pet. 2:22), will proliferate at the end of the world bringing final judgment on mankind (Lk. 17:28-30), have been finally given up by God to uncleanness to dishonor their own bodies, to vile affections, & to a reprobate mind such that they cannot think straight about anything (Rom. 1:23-28); and, unable to blush, be ashamed, or repent (Jer. 6:15), they have no hope of Heaven (Rev. 22:15). “It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.” Heb. 10:31.
It’s funny that they justify their actions by quoting scripture out of context. Didn’t someone else in the Bible try that once? Oh yeah, Satan.
5Then the devil took him to the holy city and had him stand on the highest point of the temple. 6“If you are the Son of God,” he said, “throw yourself down. For it is written:
” ‘He will command his angels concerning you,
and they will lift you up in their hands,
so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.'”
The thing that troubles me the most about this entire situation is not how I feel about this, but how non-believers see Christianity through all of this. They see Christianity as a hateful, discriminating, and judgmental group of elitest who have a club that you’re not allowed to join unless you vote a certain way and hate “fags.” Is that really what Christianity is all about? I wrote two blogs some time ago about my thoughts on Christianity and evangelism, and if you want to know my thoughts, please go to the links.
