"God Hates America" - Says The Phelps Family...
I watched a programme last night, that amazed me no end.
I can’t believe that people like the Phelps family actually exist.
The Phelps family pickets mourners across the country, to mark what it describes as God's revenge on the US for tolerating homosexuality.
Their actions are in the name of the Westboro Baptist Church, which numbers 71 and is headed by "Gramps", preacher Fred Phelps. The church, which is based in Topeka, Kansas, mostly comprises his extended family.
I can’t believe that any sane human being would choose the funeral of soldiers, killed in Iraq, to protest about gay people.
I was just as shocked and stunned to see seven year old kids with banners that read ‘Fags will burn in hell’.
I went on their God Hates America website, and found a message of hate so vile, that it took my breath away.
God Hates Fags. God Hates You. The World is Doomed. This very well may be the last warning this doomed mass of mankind will receive before Christ returns in fire and glory to punish you. Whether you will hear it, or whether you will forbear, it is of no consequence to us. You have been warned.
All this hatred preached by one little inbred man, who obviously doesn’t have all his faculties. Why do these people buy into this rubbish? What is about them that makes it so easy for them to be brainwashed?
It seems to me that there are plenty of times when freedom of speech isn’t such a good thing.
These kind of extremists are part of the reasons why I abhor organised religion.
If I had my way, they’d all be shot like the rabid dogs they are.
