Why I avoided faith for so long

Because of people like this.  Fred Phelps and the Westboro Baptist Jerks are at it again, and you're not going to believe their next plan.

Rev. Mr. Phelps, you claim to be a Christian.  Perhaps you missed that whole chunk of the Scriptures about "judge not," and "as you forgive others, so Our Heavenly Father will forgive you."  But, since you're a so-called "Reverend," you must at least have a passing familiarity with this:

15 'But, take heed of the false prophets, who come unto you in sheep's clothing, and inwardly are ravening wolves. 16 From their fruits ye shall know them; do men gather from thorns grapes? or from thistles figs? 17 so every good tree doth yield good fruits, but the bad tree doth yield evil fruits. 18 A good tree is not able to yield evil fruits, nor a bad tree to yield good fruits. 19 Every tree not yielding good fruit is cut down and is cast to fire: 20 therefore from their fruits ye shall know them. 21 'Not every one who is saying to me Lord, lord, shall come into the reign of the heavens; but he who is doing the will of my Father who is in the heavens. 22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, lord, have we not in thy name prophesied? and in thy name cast out demons? and in thy name done many mighty things? 23 and then I will acknowledge to them, that -- I never knew you, depart from me ye who are working lawlessness.
Your actions cause needless suffering to the innocent, and serve only to turn people away from the Lord our God.  That being the case, who are you really working for?  (Hint:  God doesn't have horns and a pointed stick.  FYI.)

You're getting on in years, Mr. Phelps.  If you don't come to your senses soon, I predict you'll have a lot of explaining to do in the hereafter.


  1. I'm convinced that Phelps and his family full of lawyers formed Westboro Baptist for the tax breaks - a pastor's salary isn't taxed, for example, and church purchases are made tax free. If any of them have had a salvation experience, I'll be the most-shocked person on this planet.

    Otherwise, they would be just as well served by forming a secular group that spread the same vile, hateful crap that they're shoveling.

  2. That video may be the sckest thing I've ever seen or heard. I couldn't finish it. There will be a special place in hell for ths man.

  3. yeah I hate the fact that folks like the Westboro losers get more than their fair share of publicity. If we could just ignore them somehow they would probably go away. But how do you ignore this level of offense behavior? You can't and so in a way they get rewarded with attention, like naughty little toddlers except way more destructive. whew enough ranting.


Intelligent commentary is welcome. Spam will be annihilated. Stupidity will be mocked.
