I am pretty blown away right now! I just stumbled upon some pretty disturbing websites belonging to Fred Phelps and Westboro Baptist Church. I understand this is a very small, select group of people that are terribly misrepresenting God, Christianity and pretty much anything and everything that has to do with both of the two, but i can’t helped but feel deeply disturbed. At first i actually thought it was a joke, but the more i read the more i realised that these people are for real! If you are in the mood for some heavy reading visit one of their websites. The one that i first stumbled upon was God Hates America. They say that God Hates America, Americans will end up eating their babies, they pray for more dead U.S. soldiers, they will not pray for America, “Fags” and all “Fag enablers” are going straight to hell, Obama is the Antichrist, God doesn’t love everyone, and on and on with all kinds of other hate. And judging by their contact page they are not looking into hearing any other views. Here’s a taste from their contact page:
“We are not really interested in a dialogue with you demon-posessed perverts. We are not out to change your minds, win your soul to Jesus, agree to disagree, find common ground upon which to build a meaningful long-term relationship, or any other of your euphemisms for compromising in our stance on the Word of God. If your question is answered in the FAQ, don’t expect a reply. If your question is already answered in one of our blogs, don’t expect a response. If your message is a tirade of childish nonsense or full of profanity, don’t expect that your message will even be read. For those of you who do get a reply, if you don’t like what we have to say, deal with it. We aren’t here to make you happy, we’re here to deliver a message.
Oh, and Pastor Phelps doesn’t do email. If one of us thinks that your message was unique or interesting enough to pass on to him, he’ll get it, but since less than .01% of all messages received fit that category, don’t expect him to see, much less respond to your drivel.
Thanks for writing!”
