Stop The Funeral. Rev Christian Hate-Filled Extremist Has Something To Say!

Move over Mother Cindy, it appears that she, (along with useful idiots who follow such leftist organizations such as, People for the American Way etc.), are not the only whackos out there protesting the war in Iraq. Here is an example of "Christian" right-wing extremism, and it is just as loony and dangerous as the insane rants coming out of the left.

Here are some highlights from the article:

The Rev. Fred Phelps, founder of Westboro Baptist in Kansas, contends that American soldiers are being killed in Iraq as vengeance from God for protecting a country that harbors gays. The church, which is not affiliated with a larger denomination, is made up mostly of Phelps' children, grandchildren and in-laws.

The church members carried signs and shouted things such as "God hates fags" and "God hates you."

About 10 church members protested near Smyrna United Methodist Church and nearly 20 stood outside the National Guard Armory in Ashland City. Members have demonstrated at other soldier funerals across the nation.

The funerals were for Staff Sgt. Asbury Fred Hawn II, 35, in Smyrna and Spc. Gary Reese Jr., 22, in Ashland City. Both were members of the Tennessee National Guard.

Hundreds of Smyrna and Ashland City residents and families of other soldiers turned out at both sites to counter the message the Westboro Baptist members brought.

Which God is Rev Phelps following? I’ve been a Christian since I was a small boy, and I don’t ever recall finding anywhere in Jesus’ teachings or the teachings of the Church that God loves some people that he created and hates others.

On the contrary, Christianity teaches that God loves all people so much that He was willing to hand His very own Son, Jesus, over to a extremely cruel and violent death, in order to be the sacrifice for all of our sins against Him so that we could dwell with Him throughout eternity.

Christians believe that God hates the sin, not the person. Phelps' notion that God is somehow responsible for the slaughter of American soldiers because there are homosexuals, which He hates, living freely in the U.S.A. is both absurd and blasphemous!

Just as Cindy Sheehan doesn't speak for all Americans who have lost a son or a daughter in the War in Iraq, Rev Phelps doesn't speak for God, much less Christians.

Apart from demonstrating his blatant ignorance of the very nature of God and the religion he espouses, what about the insensitivity of his and his followers actions against families who are no doubt, going through a time of terrible grief?

The loss of a child, no matter how noble the death is, has got to be the most devastating thing that parents have to face. They certainly don't need Rev Phelps' rants outside the funeral service that God killed their children.

For a supposed Christian Reverend to act this way shows that not only does he not know who God is, he also has no clue as to how a Christian should behave.

Extremists are Extremists no matter whether they come from the left or the right. Whackos are whackos irregardless of political mindset. Hate filled Christians are just as evil as hate filled Muslims.

Over in Crawford, Texas we have "Mother Cindy" using her son’s noble death as a platform to preach that soldiers are dying for nothing. Now in Smyrna, Tennessee we have Rev. Phelps preaching to us that our soldiers are dying because God hates gays living in the U.S.A.

Both lunatics are aiding our enemy the demon possessed, bloodthirsty terrorists and emboldening them in their murderous position.

Thanks to Cindy and the Media’s non-stop attention to her, and the loony hippies protesting with her, a message is being sent, (however false that it actually is), to the terrorists that a majority of Americans have lost their resolve in supporting the Iraq War, now that they are losing their sons and daughters.

Thanks to Rev Phelps, and his hate-filled flock, they are sending the terrorists a message of encouragement to keep up the good fight against the American troops over there in Iraq, who are being killed because they come from an evil nation that harbors homosexuals and their sinful lifestyle. In other words, "Allah akbar, God is with you and your bloody jihad!"

To which the terrorists in Iraq and the spokespeople from Osama Bin Laden’s al Qaeda can now respond: See. We told you we were fighting God’s Holy War!

Thanks a lot Rev Phelps. Thanks for nothing. You sir, are neither a great American, nor are you a fit representative of Christianity.

Not only does America "harbor" homosexuals, but it also harbours people like you and Cindy Sheehan who shamelessly bite the very hand that gives you the freedom to slander its troops in the first place.

Amen, Brother Clay.

Phelps is no more Christian than the KKK, Aryan Nation, David Duke or Storm Front. (The latter two, by the way, support Sheehan in her crusade against America and our "war for Israel".)

The left think all of this is doing damage to the Bush admin, while it is really only hurting them. How can they not see this? Oh yeah, they are idiots.
