Westboro - "God Hates the NBA"
WFAA-TV | June 3, 2011 | Self

Posted on 06/03/2011 9:35:47 PM PDT by re_nortex

I just caught a story on WFAA-TV News about the Westboro loons coming to Dallas on Sunday June 5, 2011 from 6:15 PM to 7:00 PM. The site of their event is the American Airlines Center, timed to occur just prior to Game 3 of the NBA Finals between the Miami Heat and the Dallas Mavericks.

Their claim is:

GOD HATES THE NBA!

Fred Phelps and his crew go on to claim:

WBC will picket the NBA game between the Dallas Mavericks and the Miami Heat to warn this nation that they need to tear down their idols and worship only the true God, Jesus Christ. The people of Doomed america [sic] set up these spoiled, rebellious basketball players and other celebrities as little gods that they emulate then curse the real God, Jesus Christ because He does not supprt [sic] their vile sins.

Like the ancient Israelites, this nation has turned their collective back on the the Lord their God and refused to obey. The prefer to worship their powerless idols and pay false prophets to lie to them. They would rather live like these filthy celebrities by fornicating, divorcing & remarrying, and supporting fag-filth than to hear about God's standards - to the peril of their never-dying souls. Nevertheless, WBC will kindly warn them to flee the wrath to come by repenting and obeying. Doomed americans [sic] cannot continue to live for the devil then expect to get to heaven. Hell and damnation awaits these idolatrous fools.

This out to be real interesting in the 97 degree heat predicted for this coming Sunday.

I'll not dishonor Free Republic by linking to the Westboro site (nor will I refer to it as a church) but a web search will lead you to the story.

Is there anything, anyone the Wesboro group doesn’t hate?

At least it will keep them busy and not harassing families of veterans at funerals.

They seem quite fond of their fellow Democrats. Really.

Those Westboro people are the true definition of looney tunes. Not enough straight jackets to cover those fools up. God doesn’t hate the NBA, but I bet he got a good chuckle at seeing Miami blow a 15 point lead last night

As did I. I was reminded of Al Michael's and his unforgettable line from 1980's hockey match won by America over the commies:

"Do you believe in miracles? YES!"

God does not hate the NBA but I’m guessing he has not followed much since the GREAT Jerry West Ret. in late ‘74. Fellow oldsters will remember ‘Mr Clutch’...’Zeke from cabin creek’!!! The young’ns? They think this tatooed up thug ball bullcrap now is the greatest show on earth!!

The second I saw those two arrogant jerks Wade and LeChoke have a little celebration in front of the Mavs bench I knew the Mavs would win that game. Note to ALL teams out there, never celebrate til the final buzzer rings..as a die hard Laker fan I have a lot of respect for Dallas and I hope that Dirk gets his ring..watching Miami lose will make this Laker fan feel a little bit better about this crazy season

So, they're going to the Jockatorium to protest Jockolotry?

This one I can almost understand.

I resent tax money being used to benefit team owners: separation of church & state should apply.

but i don’t understand, why people pay attention to them. they should be “shunned” and totally ignored.

Thanks, Sarah. I love Dirk and the Mavs and hope they can win. One thing’s sure, though, the Heat won’t celebrate till it’s over again.

I think the Mavericks and the whole region learned humility (and a dose of lowered expectations) after the debacle of five years ago and the epic meltdown in Game 3 against Miami. At least the curse of Mayor Laura Miller ("Hey...let's plan the parade route!") is gone.

I hate the Miami Heat because they beat my Bulls. But no offense to my FRiends in Dallas I hope it is hotter than hell and these lunatic DEMOCRAT troublemakers have a miserable picket.

Someone should call Fred Phelps and have him protest in Death Valley. I don't know why the media continues to give these FRAUD DEMOCRATS attention other than they are trying to link normal Christians to these psychotic INBRED DEMOCRATS!!!

No offense taken and no hoping is needed for that kind of weather. This is Dallas and it being June, blazing sunshine and searing temperatures are a given.

But we make up for it with temperatures in the teens, ice storms and howling winds in February as Jerry Jones knows all too well.

Heat are cocky..Wade is alright but LeBron, I NEVER want him to win anything so yeah, rooting for the Mavs, heck all Laker fans here in LA are rooting for the Mavs. you guys beat us because you were the better team. I’d love to see Dirk win a ring he is an amazing basketball player and that whole “He’s soft” persona is totally out the window now

:-)

No offense meant at all...just thought it was amusing. I fully realize that plenty of FReepers dislike the NBA for any number of reasons.

I won’t ever agree with Fred Phelps, so in this case I’ll be even happier than usual to agree with God.

Next stop: The Green Bay Packers.

We gave up our season seats at the Forum (sitting right across from Chick Hearn) right after Jerry West retired. Good timing, as it turned out. They weren’t good again until Magic joined the team 5 years later.

The early ‘70s was my favorite NBA era.

A team owned by Mark Cuban vs. the egotists of the Miami Heat - I don’t care much for it either. Fortunately, there’s the Stanley Cup finals.

There are two sports moments that I think will be long-lasting memories for those of us here in flyover country.

1). Dirk's final shot using his injured hand to beat the Heat in Game 2 last night.

2). Rangers pitcher Neftali Feliz striking out A-Rod (not exactly a fan favorite hereabouts) in Game 6 of the 2010 ALCS to claim the pennant over the Yankees.

I agree that Cuban is a despicable, anti-American leftist. I wish the success that the Mavericks have enjoyed under his ownership would have occurred when a descent guy like Don Carter had the team.

That’s my theory.

The Westboro church is comprised of a family of democrat/liberal lawyers who make money suing those who object to their protestations. Only democrats could get away with what they do.

Well stated, SB, and exactly right. That stupid dance in front of the Mavs was like giving the finger. In post game interviews of Mavs they downplayed it, but having played competitive sports myself I know that it riled them up.

Like you, if I see the Cowboys lose early in the playoffs then I want to see the team that beat them go on to win it all. .......Just wasn’t your year for the Lakers.

Citizens usually VOTE to approve bonds to help finance large sports facilities in their communities. The benefits of such operations do not only enrich the team owners.

The AA Center in Dallas, where the Mavericks and Stars play, has brought in millions of dollars to the city. Rangers Stadium in Arlington and Lone Star Park (horse racing) in Grand Prairie have also brought in millions. I believe the taxpayer approved bonds have probably been repaid from the revenues.

Cowboys Stadium was funded by Jerry Jones and Arlington only funded road improvements, etc. The facility is the site of numerous events other than Cowboy games and a large number of restaurants, hotels, etc., have built in the area. Arlington taxpayers have benefited from all of the additional tax revenue.

The worst heat I dealt with was 115 in Las Vegas it was brutal in the shade.

I don't care at this point, dry heat, humid heat. Both suck! I need to move to the Arctic Circle :)
