So they say they want to protest dead soldier funerals because they implement part of the USGOV policy. Ok, sad, but somewhat linked to politics. But this? The cops protecting them need to go a cigarette break for 5 minutes

Protest what? My question also. What point are these folks trying to make? A christian church that reflects Christ should offer comfort for the family, not this.

what on earth are they protesting about?

Mothers shouldn’t kill teens?

Children shouldn’t talk back?

I’m waiting for that day. Yes I am. And then, I wonder who will protest at their funerals?

I wonder if instead of a protest, will there be a huge dance party?

Westboro Baptist Church is protesting the morality of this country. They are not protesting 'two girls' funeral.' The mother murdered her two teens who were not brought up to respect God and the Bible.

Psalm 89:30-32
If his children forsake my law, and walk not in my judgments;
If they break my statutes, and keep not my commandments;
Then will I visit their transgression with the rod, and their iniquity with stripes.

Psalm 128:1
Blessed is every one that feareth the LORD; that walketh in his ways.

The question is asked on WBC's website: Is God a liar?

They are all lawyers. That church is made up of one big family (think the Osmonds - only evil). Every last one of them is a lawyer. That’s where the money comes from. And they never have to pay a lawyer to defend themselves since they do their own work.

I see. But according to your post, she should have beaten them with a rod and whipped them. She sort of "over-visited" their transgressions perhaps.

When I was in elementary school, our Principal passionately sung Christmas carols, especially the ones honoring Christ (Hark the herald angels sing, glory to the newborn King...).

She also had a paddle for disipline. It worked.

Do you know anything about WBC? They are the lowest of scum...protesting dead military members’ funerals and the like. Not to mention Fred Phelps is a buddy of Al Gore.

Then again, maybe you got lost on your way to DU...

These people are attention whores.
That being said, they also hope that they will incite onlookers into provocation, and then they sue them for assault, and usually win.

Being in the Patriot Guard, I have seen these filthy cretins up close and personal, and they are lunatics.

"Not to mention Fred Phelps is a buddy of Al Gore."

1988 Phelps provides rooms for Democrat Al Gore's presidential campaign workers. Though the Phelps-Gore connection will grow increasingly distant, Phelps' oldest son, Fred Jr., is invited to the first Clinton-Gore inauguration in 1993.

By 1998, Gore will be seen as such an enemy by WBC that its members picket the funeral of Gore's father.

That was twenty years ago!

Hey, you want to defend the scumbag, be my guest...I can only tell you that won’t be a popular stance w/the founder of the site (or anyone on it for that matter).

Maybe if it was your loved one whose funeral was being interrupted by these inbreds, you would feel differently. Then again, I have a feeling not.

Check out backslacker’s history; there are other posts sympathetic to WBC.

I'm sympatheic to GOD and to those who defend God. When is the last time you read a part of the Bible?

Do you believe what God has written through his prophets?

God has promised through his Word that he will take all that is in the earth, including our precious bodies, and burn it up to destruction.

Every funeral I've attended everybody forces false flatteries about the deceased and I just quietly shake my head wondering why these things weren't spoken when the person was alive. They say such blatant lies like "George is now in the loving arms of our Lord Jesus" when George never picked up a Bible. I i know that scriptures says that few will go to heaven. Is God lying to us in scriptures?

If WBC pickets my funeral, I would be truly honored. I just hope I had repented of whatever sin I am accused of committing.

How you’ve survived this long on this site eludes me. You would be honored to be picketed by the same people who wanted to picket the 9 y.o. shooting victim in Tucson????? What are you smoking?

I honestly don’t think we’re praying to the same God.

Just when I thought I had seen it all...

BTW, isn’t pride a sin? Maybe you could tell me since I am just a lowly Catholic (you know we don’t EVER read Scripture).

OTOH, never mind...my mom told me it wasn’t nice to argue with the mentally ill.

How could you possibly know no person ever said nice things about “George” when he was alive, or that George didn’t have a conversion in the final days of his life?

"How could you possibly know no person ever said nice things..."

That is not the issue. Did you miss the real problem? George, or whoever, did not pick up a Bible. THAT is the issue. Read the statement again. God didn't command us to say "nice" things to one another (other than truth). Most nice things are just flattery.

Please re-read the sentence where it says "DID NOT PICK UP A BIBLE." That means George did not READ the Bible! For a clear illustration, go to a nursing home (if you can gain access) and you will find Bibles on their bookshelves - but not in anyone's possession. WE WILL NOT OBEY GOD!!!!!!!

And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart: And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up." --- Deuteronomy 6:6-7

WBC does not invite people to Bible studies or do any kind of missionary work. They mostly spend their time holding protests and doing media interviews.

It's called preaching the Gospel - this is the Great Commission.
