Westboro Wackos

The wackos at the Westboro Baptist Church in Topeka, KS are at it again. These are the people that have been showing up and protesting at the funerals of our fallen servicemen and servicewomen for the last few years. They blame the deaths of those heroes on the fact that this country is tolerant those that have chosen a homosexual lifestyle.

The irony of this is that they are disrespecting the honor and memory of the very same people that have sacrificed their lives defending these nut-jobs’ right to free speech.

Yes, they have a right to peacefully protest. But just because one has the right to do something doesn’t mean it necessarily needs to be done. And whoever is advising them on when and where to get their message out is giving them bad advice.

Yes, they have a right to voice their opinions. But they do nothing to advance their cause by protesting at the funerals and memorial services of our fallen heroes.

They’re going for a sensational impact since just sending out a press release stating their opinions isn’t enough. They must get out there and show that they have no respect for the lives of those that paid the ultimate sacrifice for their rights. And, their idiotic protesting shows no respect or compassion for the families, friends and loved ones of those that have fallen.

Not content to just go after the soldiers that have sacrificed their lives in Iraq and Afghanistan, now they have targeted Heath Ledger because he played a cowboy that had chosen a homosexual lifestyle in the movie “Brokeback Mountain”. I never saw the movie and have no intention of doing so. As I said in a previous post, Hollywood “has taken up the liberal agenda of dumbing down society in order to make moral relativism the status quo.”

So why aren’t they out in Hollywood everyday protesting in front of each of the studios that make the movies that are offensive to them?

The answer is simple -- they are cowards.

At a funeral there will be only a relatively small number of people with which to contend. And, the people in attendance WILL be showing respect for the fallen and their families.

In Hollywood, they would be massively outnumbered. And those bastions of tolerance and diversity would not likely show the same traits to these wackos.

As I said, they have every right to do what they do. But they show no semblance of compassion or class. They are also judgmental. According to them, Heath Ledger and all of those dead soldiers are in hell right now.

And here is where they lose. Christians are supposed to be compassionate. I believe that the vast majority of them are. A normal person would not protest at someone’s funeral. These people are way radical. To me, the only thing they have over the radical Islamic terrorists that they don’t blow themselves up at funerals and kill many other innocent victims is that they don’t kill anyone.

I see absolutely NO compassion in their actions. All I see is hate.

And, who gives them the authority to know or determine where a person will spend eternity? I thought that was reserved for God!

These wackos are filled with hate. Luckily, for us, God is filled with Love.

Yes. God hates sin. But thankfully, He loves us sinners.

And, if they really despise living in a society where there are people that have chosen a homosexual lifestyle, then perhaps they should move to Iran. According to "Achmegenocide", Iran has no homosexuals.

There’ll be no martini recipe for these wackos.
