The church recently announced via Twitter that it would picket the funerals of the 19 Arizona firefighters who died attempting to contain a wildfire.

"Praise God," the tweet read. "A consuming fire!"

I suppose this is, once again, because God hates Fags, I suppose.
They really do only do it because they desperately need the publicity, the media really do just play into their hands.

Life is a hideous business, and from the background behind what we know of it peer daemoniacal hints of truth which make it sometimes a thousandfold more hideous.

correct, and the sooner they are ignored the sooner they will disappear in the sewer they came from.

I agree they should be ignored, they do not speak for anyone but their own little group, which is mostly family anyway.  The young tend to leave when they reach a certain age.  One young woman just came out with a book about your life in the church....I have lnot read it.

Proverbs 6:16
These six things doth the LORD hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him:

Proverbs 6:17
A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood,

Proverbs 6:18
An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief,

Proverbs 6:19
A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren.

These people claim to speak for God, it looks like God hates them.

It's just another glorified cult in the media's spotlight.

The daughter of the founder, the old man who started this nutty religion, is a lawyer and she has actually sued a number of people and corporations who have challenged her. In one case, a man sued her because of the picketing of the funeral of his son, ended up losing and having to pay them money. There was a show out a while back where some journalist or TV host (can't remember exactly what) actually lived with the family for a couple weeks or so. So he got an inside look at them and believe me, if you think they're nutty on the outside, you haven't seen anything until you see that show.

Bottom line is, it's always so much easier to hate than it is to be open-minded and if you have a target and a group that supports you in your hate, there really isn't any enticement to change. Given those circumstances, very few people are going to break out of the group. From the beginning of time, being different from your group means being cast out and that price is too high for many people to even consider paying. And that can be applied to every group from the Nazis to the conservative Christians.

What in the world does the WBC have against firefighters?

Nevermind. Common sense, logic and humanity has never been their stronger points.

So firefighters must be anti-god/anti-christ.

No, that was an extra statement I put in about islam, because iblis is made of pure fire.

Thanks for the 411. I figured they had the backing of someone, I won't use the term "angel", however. It's a small group, is it the exclusivity that's attractive, I wonder, or the fact that they get their names in the paper and attention? Is it fear that's driving them or ego? While they came together to express condemnation & judgment, they seem to be bringing people together in a good way.

Growing up and experiencing certain events like this, Westboro Baptist Church are beginning to make me believe they are attempting to make everybody hate them for no good reason other than to nullify the image of Jesus and such. Why are they picketing good people? What exactly is the point? These are the only kind of people I'd willingly snuff out. They do no good, they only preach misguided hate from a book written by a bunch of sun-stroked outcasts.

Any group, is judged by those outside said group, more often than not, by the fanatics and crazy people.  It is so and will always be.  They are Christian, though I don't understand their stance at all.  Nor would I challenge them, I have seen that it does no good.  Like I said in an earlier post, their young people leave them when they reach a certain age and begin to see the harm and pain they caused.  Perhaps it is because Christ Jesus is at work in their hearts.....love is stronger than hate I believe.
