Fresh off their Supreme Court victory allowing them to picket funerals of military soldiers, members of the Westboro Baptist Church have announced plans to picket the funerals of seven Mennonite children killed Tuesday night when their Perry County farmhouse caught fire.
The children, ages 7 months to 11 years, were killed when a fire started in the home while their mother was milking cows and their father was on his milk delivery route.Their three-year-old daughter managed to escape and alert the mother, but the fire had already overwhelmed the wooden structure, police said.
The group from Topeka, Kan., said the death of the children was "just punishment at the hand of an Angry God" displeased with the failure of Pennsylvania residents to heed Westboro Baptist's call to "put away rebellion and obey the Lord your God."
Funeral arrangements for the children have not been announced.
These people are pure evil.
A Louisville radio station offered the nutcases an hour of air time to vent their propaganda if they'd allow the survivors to mourn in peace. They took the station up on the offer (that one hour segment had the lowest audience rating in the station's history) and the surviving family members later met with the head of the station to personally thank him for his actions.
Why can’t someone pass a law making it a minor misdemeanor to thoroughly beat up anyone who is protesting a funeral?
It would still be ‘illegal’, but the fine would only be $10...Alito was right. This isn’t free speech, but assault.
It really makes me shake my head to think about how horribly misguided these people are. I’m not a theology expert, but I’m pretty sure Jesus doesn’t want his gospel spread by mean-spirited finger pointing. In fact, I think there were big chunks of a whole book in the New Testament written about a disfunctional church (Corinthians, maybe?).
They chose another conservative target. Never a gay pride parade, for instance. If I lived nearby I would picket the picketers, exposing them for the Democrat-donating posers they are. Probably a big sign with an arrow pointing to them saying “Democrat Donors” or a blue D logo circle saying “Posers”. Use your imagination. Exposing them as the liberal Dems they are is the way to shut them up.
You know, there is a lot of road between Kansas and wherever these children will be buried. Driving in bad weather and especially at night is a really dangerous job. People get sleepy behind the wheel during long boring drives. Sometimes things just happen.......
Exactly. They are vile attention whores. They just go hoping to get on television or to be assaulted so they can sue. They are mocking God. He will not be mocked.
God has some very choice words throughout scripture about false prophets.
Mennonites are pacifists.
Sooner or later these fools are gonna piss off the wrong person,and there’s going to be a real bloodbath.
Do you think the FAA would pull the ticket of someone who flew over the demonstrators and dumped a bushel basket full of live skunks on them?
We are admonished to “speak the Truth, IN LOVE”.
So just like Satan in the Garden, these followers of him pervert God’s ordinance to suit their own vision.
Friends of mennonites on the other hand are under no such compulsion.
Oh and as we escorted the scum to his car one of the PGR told him if he ever came back to Reno we would kill him and plant him in the desert. They have not been back.
“They are mocking God. He will not be mocked.”
As tempting as it would be to beat these evil people to within an inch of their lives, I think it would be better to pound on God’s door and ask Him to intervene. And you are exactly right, God will NOT be mocked. Nor hold his anger forever. They will fall, a sudden calamity will befall them, with NO escape.
What kind of bravery, protesting at the funeral of true Christians’ children? They’re hardly a group not going to turn the other cheek. Maybe the Phelps family will actually learn something.
I think of that every time these scum hit the news, Baptists must be furious...
Big Democrat supporters; had fundraisers for Al Gore when he ran. I think they’re bankrolled by some bigshot Democrat and charged with ginning up a false concept against Christians. - Ask yourself; why would they have held fundraisers and hobnobbed with fat Democrats when the Democratic Party is just another name for Abortion on Demand if they thought abortion (& homosexuality) was an abomination to God? Homosexuality is also a BIG Democrat “thing”.
Another end game is to have them tweak the noses of conservatives until they cause riots. It will only get more and more ridiculous until they do.
the funeral will be tuesday. whp radio and tv have a link to facebook. plus a link to the church’s site to get as many people as we can to push them as far back as possible
Digusting sacks of manure. Truly disgusting.
