Infamous Kansas church: Tony Snow burns in hell
WorldNetDaily.com ^ | July 15, 2008 | Joe Kovacs

Posted on 07/15/2008 2:25:28 AM PDT by Man50D

A Kansas church well-known for its protests at the funerals of fallen American soldiers plans to picket at this week's funeral of former Press Secretary Tony Snow, declaring that Snow is "a very bad monkey" who is "now burning in hell."

"He had a platform, he was given some small talent by his Creator. He was an unfaithful steward, and is now residing in hell," says a schedule on the website of the Westboro Baptist Church.

"Each opportunity he had to faithfully report what the servants at WBC had to tell this country/world, Tony Snow besmirched and vilified the words of God and the people of God. Thereby being a party to the crime of passing laws to make the preaching of the gospel to this adulterous and sinful generation [equals] criminal activity. That is a very bad monkey!"

The announcement goes on to quote a variety of biblical verses concerning "scribes," and closes by stating: "You see there is nothing worse than a scribe who has gone away from their primary duty to faithfully report the facts as they ARE! And how appropriate that this brute, vain beast of a brat was raised Catholic, but then determined like his forefathers that oops! he'd rather be a filthy Episcopalian instead. God hates Tony Snow, and that is why he is now burning in hell."

I'd be a lousy god. I'd be killing people with lightning bolts all the time.

Of course, that would make me no better than some demented child that takes pleasure in burning ants with a magnifying glass, so maybe that goes a long way to explain why God doesn't kill fiendish people with lightning bolts.

Westboro Baptist Church worships Satan in my opinion.

Some people don't deserve attention. This group is a prime example. Furthermore, I don't understand why you would post this ridiculous story without adding your own comment about it.

Ignored.

Everyone seems to know who will burn in hell, and, for some reason, it is always those with different beliefs from one's own.

I guess it confers a kind of status to some people in their own minds, to imagine that they are superior to the majority of humans.

Are you serious? Many threads about radical groups have been posted on FR in the past. Code Pink is just one and yet some how you determine this one is different. This radical group deserves all the negative publicity it can get. Their actions need no comment. They speak for themselves. You should be more concerned about their attempt to disrupt the service the Snow family obviously does not deserve instead of focusing on trying to kill the messenger.

I respectfully disagree. The best cure for such rabid dementia is sunlight. IMO we should always give such cults publicity - it’s not as if they’re going to get any converts.

They worked out that schtick with Al Gore in the late 80’s. When Al & Tipper went on their “obscene rap lyrics” kick to try and prove they were social conservatives for the TN voters, they had a photo op with this guy Phelps. I think that was before Westboro was kicked out of the Baptist church.

Count on the Patriot Guard Riders to be at Snow's service to ward off the Wesboro sect scum.

Not a fair fight I agree but then this type of scum deserves nothing fair....

I heard the last time they sent men out, they got the crap kicked out of them. When they went to press charges, "nobody saw anything".

"Judge not lest ye be judged." How DARE these wackos stage their sick 'protests' at military funerals and now plan to do so for Tony Snow. I suppose in some warped way it is a compliment that people who are so obviously hate-filled and EVIL view you as an enemy - that could be seen to mean you are by necessity their polar opposite.

They should have their tax-free status revoked. I'm sure if enough lawyers looked into it, there are grounds there somewhere.

They can be sure that THEY and their pitiful actions are not pleasing to God.

You know, I am reaching a point where I think the media, and forums like this, should stop reporting on Phelps.

What he wants is attention. The more press he has gotten the more stunts he has pulled and the more brazen they have become.

Perhaps it’s time to stop giving him what he craves.

Amen & Amen!
My studies brings me to “God sent not His Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through Him might be saved.”(John 3:17)
And in 2 Peter 3:9) “The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some men count slackness; but is long- suffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.”
Ezekiel said in 33:11, “.....God has no pleasure in the death of the wicked,......” and we read in Psalm 116:15, “Precious in the sight of the LORD is the death of His saints.”
No man can speak for God, except through God’s Word!!!!

I really wish we could all agree not to post any threads about this group and their hateful doctrine. I like reading and hearing about the Patriot Guard who vigilantly shield grieving families from these misfits; maybe thread titles could reflect *that* and not the former in any way.

The Phelps crew is a cowardly bunch. Whenever you see them protesting, invariably there are police in close proximity to them. Most people think that the police are there to keep the Phelps protesters away from the ceremony, and that may be the purpose that the police had in mind. But on occasions where the police have been pulled in closer to the funeral, the Phelps crowd tend not to show up. They prefer to do their marching separate from the funeral with police near them and the crowd far away. Remove that separation and they tend not to show up. Coincidence? Or cowardice?

I salute you. Remember though that Christ admonished us to love our enemies. Certainly the hardest thing I have ever tried to do. And honestly I am not very successful at it. These people are IMHO misguided and lost. While intervention is appropriate to prevent them from hurting innocents, we should not forget to pray for their redemption.
