    For anyone anticipating a friendly visit from the Westboro Baptists
    to your fine city, here is the "official theme song" that all citizens
    are invited to join in singing. Very LOUDLY please! To let the
    WB know how welcome they are wherever they bless us with their presence:


    "God Hates America"

    God hates America,
    Fat lazy slobs!
    While we split hairs
    Over welfare,
    Slaves in Asia
    Are taking our jobs!

    From the handouts,
    To the bailouts,
    Leaving us in greater debt
    God hates America
    And all our Vets!
    God hates America
    And all our Vets!

    God hates America,
    Land of the lost!
    While we protest
    Certain Baptists
    States are sued
    To remove every Cross!

    Religious freedom
    Is for Heathens
    If you're Muslim
    You're a Putz!

    God hates America
    Cuz we've gone nuts!
    God hates America
    Cuz we've gone nuts!


    ==========================
    SERIOUS NOTE: If you have any FAVORITE photos
    to illustrate this song
    please post here. It can be funny signs, or bad photos
    of the craziness in America, whatever creative ideas you have for a collage.

    We can make a video as a gift to the WB
    from USMB Friends, and circulate that to promote nonprofits that help our Veterans.
    Where funds raised can go to great American causes to
    restore our country's historic sites, landmarks and housing for disabled
    and recovering veterans, especially families
    harassed by the WB protestors. Thank you!

    Why give Westboro any attention at all when the church nationally and internationally has stated this church isn't representing the Gospel of Jesus Christ? That they have no affiliation with any national christian group. Nothing. Why focus on the one church in America that doesn't represent the gospel.

    You realise that when the focus is on them it is a very unfair portrayal of American Christians?

    Founder: Fred Phelps (b. 1929) became pastor of Westboro Baptist church in 1955. Ordained in the Southern Baptist denomination in 1947, married to Margie Phelps
    The westboro Baptist Christian church just says what the other churches are thinking, the other fundamentalist Christian churches say basically the same thing about gays and others, but put it in more "reasonable" sounding tone:eusa_whistle:

    Night and day, Polkow. Night and day. Westboro is not even a vague resemblence of the christian churches of America. Very unfair.

    Also you state that Westboro is just acting out and speaking what the rest of the churches are "thinking"? How would they know what churches across America think? Are they mind readers? Your reasoning makes no sense whatsoever. Again Westboro is not even a vague resemblence of the average american Church.

    The true face of Christianity IS the face of Westboro Baptist Church. The true face of Christianity is the radical face, the Fundamentalist face, the Religious Right. It is not the ecumenical, the Charismatic, or the “country club” groups. The Bible may say to love your neighbors, but it also clearly says that God will bring his vengeance upon those that disobey God’s law (even in the New Testament). It clearly says, in the New Testament, that women are to be cattle, that slavery is all right, that tax evasion is acceptable for Christians, that the faithful should sell everything they have and give it all to the church, that families should hate one another if everyone in the family is not a true believer, that you should not wear any jewelry made of gold or silver, that you should beat down every door and tell everyone you see that they are going to burn in Hell if they do not repent, that all Christians should live in Socialistic communes, and that the only reason to get married is if you can’t restrain yourself from having sex. It clearly says in the New Testament that the Old Testament law has not passed away, and every jot and tittle is still in effect. It clearly echoes Westboro Baptist’s battle cry, that “God Hates Fags,” and never once does it talk about accepting them or loving the sinner but hating the sin, as many churches like to claim.:eusa_whistle:

    Dear TP: Really? Do you realize you are leaving out the Christian Left who helped found and shape this country? Do you NOT count the Quakers as fellow Christians, like William Penn and his famous case of jury nullification? Or the abolitionists, from Dolly Madison who was the balance to her husband James Madison a plantation slave owner, to fellow Christians and Pastors who stood with Dr. King to unify people of all backgrounds around the Civil Rights movement so it wasn't just a Black issue but was heard and recognized worldwide.

    Maybe you should talk with the liberal Christians today who are criticized for coddling criminals by pushing for abolition of the death penalty and for immigration reforms seen as enabling criminals and poor to be rewarded for breaking laws.

    Are you not counting these people as Christian?
    What are they then? False Christians? Including those who believe in Christian values, yet respect Constitutional laws that give you and others freedom to exercise and express your views?

    Funny, if you believe those who are forgiving are NOT true Christian, then does this mean you SHARE the views of the Religious right?
    So which way is it? Are you saying they are wrong, but then you are agreeing with them?

    How can it be both things?

    Trying to understand,
    are you defending the unforgiving Religious Right because you are speaking as one of them?

    Yours truly,
    Emily

    If you believe in a Vengeful God that is Old Testament, and YES it is full of warnings of the tragic wars and genocide caused by living by the letter of the law, corrupting it with greed for power and invoking Retributive Justice, where you live by the sword you die by it.

    The whole point of Christianity is to move into the New Testament which is
    Restorative Justice in Christ Jesus, so instead of killing people and relations with
    unforgiveness and hate, then we RESTORE good faith relations with love of truth, justice
    and peace. THAT is the meaning and message of Christianity. Do you believe in this part of the Bible or not?

    Do you reallly believe your interpretation as "enslavement, judgment and punishment" leads to eternal life and salvation for all humanity? Can you please explain how this works then?

    The only thing I've seen that leads to the peace and justice, the healing grace and harmony that brings COMFORT which the Holy Spirit represents and heavenly peace on earth
    is FORGIVENESS in order to make corrections and restitution in GOOD FAITH.

    All that you talk about sounds like bad faith to me, NO faith in forgiveness which Jesus Christ represents as the ultimate sacrifice for all humanity to break the cycle of retribution.

    Your interpretation sounds like more retribution!
    Do you really believe there is salvation in that?

    Please explain your views and how you think this will get humanity any closer to God. I think you have explained the path to hell, so what is your explanation of the path to heaven?

    Well, maybe the member of the group who publicly came out and apologized.
    And maybe the purpose of the WB is to teach people forgiveness, to answer persecution with love and mercy, to be bigger than that, and rise above.

    At least they have united people on both the left and right to come forward in support of military families and others targeted for picketing. So indirectly they still send the msg that if we remain divided, then we can be targeted and exploited. But where we unite, then we can overcome together. God is still using them until we get the higher message of how to answer and correct injustice with loving forgiveness and wisdom and compassion that, with gentle grace, are more powerful a force for change than hatred, negative energy and anger.

    Hi GMU: there are plenty of groups that have figured this out. Like student groups using the protests to do positive things like set up tables to do fundraising drives for charity outreach.

    My idea was to have everyone surround and sing to them and "celebrate" with them.
    Sort of like reverse psychology, and "drown them out" with their own tune.

    The point is to kill the hatred with kindness, to answer anger and fear with love and creativity, and demonstrate why the positive energy is more powerful in solving problems.

    I like the students' idea for fundraising at these events, and would like to see the focus on helping veteran families. There are plenty of issues with vet fraud, suicide prevention, sexual assault and harassment, PTSD recovery, disability/health care assistance to be addressed.

    Lots more can be done to turn this around, and focus on the good that can come from it!

    Here is one of my favorite charities that teaches the power of kindness is greater:
    Rachel's Challenge

    I will try to find links or photos to creative counterprotests that I believe send the right msg.
