This is a very disturbing broadcast by the westboro baptist church:

That is disgusting.  I heard something similar on the radio the other day.  Some woman is the head of this group that pickets funerals of violence victems.  Their argument is that God doesn’t let bad things happen to good people, therefore if something horrible happens to someone it is because they were sinners.  Her and her group wanted to picket the funerals of all the VT students who died, but agreed to not interrupt the funeral if given 15 minutes of radio time to spread their message.  I honestly don’t know which is worse.

That’s the same group I believe. They are vile people. It should be noted however, that although they refer to themselves as “Baptists”, officially the denomination has nothing to do with them and does not recognize them as part of their group or whatever the term is.

This sort of thing makes me mad.  In the Bible book of James it says that God does not try by evil.  These people twist the Bible and then wonder why people doubt them and Christianity in general

It’s rather interesting how they claim that bad things only happen to bad people. . .except for when it is themselves who have bad things happen to them.

Sounds similar to “The Secret”.  If you can control your life based on what you want, then I guess all those victims just wanted to be victims.

Man…that Secret thing really pisses me off.  I can’t believe it’s taken so seriously.  Sorry, I don’t mean to get off topic, but that was a good observation and shows what’s wrong with both arguments.

Dammit, I wish I have never been told of “The Secret”. I wish it had been kept a secret…

So all people who die of old age are bad.

Anyway, what I don

This has to be a joke.  It just sounds like a joke.  Especially when they flashed “Fags Die God Laughs” on the screen.  If it is indeed real, then, please, someone smite them.  That’s when God will really laugh.

I’m afraid they are completely for real, it’s not a joke.

Sadly, MC is correct.  This group has been around for a long time and they are very real.

So I can just type anything and it will show up here?
