I’m not a fan of religious nut balls. Not at all.
I’m also married to a Marine.
Can you guess who I hate?
The Westboro Baptist cult has been dealt a “severe” blow by Congress. I don’t see how it’s a severe blow. I don’t think it’s good enough honestly. These wack-a-doos need to just be locked away in the mountains of Siberia.
They picket military funerals, and pretty much anything they can. They say anything bad that happens to America is “God’s will”.
Okay now, I grew up Methodist, married in a Baptist church (Not really our choice, the church I grew up in wasn’t available.), and you know what…I would NEVER have thought about doing HALF the shit these people do. Seriously, how do you call yourself a christian and justify picketing things like that? Why cause more grief to families and loved ones while they mourn for their lost family member? How can they live with themselves knowing the hate and bigotry that they are embedding in their children’s minds?
I couldn’t live with myself if I taught my boys to think and behave like that. Hell, I’d spank the shit out of them if they ever acted like that. But the world doesn’t have to worry about that. Greg and I are raising them to be accepting of all people. We are teaching them to be respectful of the military. (Hell their FATHER is a Marine. Their Uncle Lee was a Marine. Their great-grandpappy was a Marine. Their Uncle Jeff was in the Army…TONS of military. In fact I won’t be surprised if one or both join when they’re 18.)
I guess in a country of free speech, this is a small victory for those who are picketed by them. At least they aren’t allowed at the location during the funerals.
It also baffles me how they are able to pass as a church. They aren’t a church. They’re a god damned cult. That’s what they are. A cult. A horrible, disgusting one at that.
There is a special little spot in Hell for them. I hope they enjoy being roasty toasty.
Oh, go read a news article about it HERE.
