WBC may claim to be christians, but their actions don't show it--they show quite the opposite.

I suspect you despise God so much that you just had enough reading this thread and jumped in to unload on anyone who appeared to be a follower. It's okay. God knows you hate Him. But your gripe is with Him, not the one who posted the message to which you responded.
Where did I support their actions.
I'm saying that some of the hatred spewed by christers on this forum are no different.
Despise something I don't believe in, doubtful.
Call hypocrisy on practitioners, no problem.

You don't get to decide who is a christer or not.
You're all self-identified although there's absolutely no proof that a sky-daddy exists.

Basically, you're all delusional.

I didn't say we did "get to decide" who is a "christer" or not, and neither did the person to whom you responded. You are making that leap. If you do not despise God, then what's all the brew-ha-ha about--why attack people you deem delusional? When you see someone on the street you think is obviously not all there because of their actions or words, you decide they are not all there and just walk past that person, right? You may even feel pity for that person. And you make judgments on a daily basis about people's actions. Why does that not make you a hypocrit. You have some dog in this fight, and while I'm not sure why, and could care less why, your many messages just show you do. You just need to admit it to yourself.

How can I despise something I don't believe? How silly.
I see people on-line calling themselves christers and wishing ill and spewing hatred day in and day out.
Are they not christers?

The dog I have in this fight is that lots of christers are filled with hatred and enjoy spewing it.
If you could care less, why comment? Hmmmm, did I hit a nerve?

Admit what?
That you're hypocrites?

They are evil and inane, but I guess, unfortunately, we have to allow them to express themselves.

Actually, what would be fun is if we could bring back the Roman gladiator events, and put groups like the Westboro Church in the ring with the Black Panthers and just watch the show. That would be a win-win for everyone.

These people are so insane I don't even have an opinion. What needs to be done to make them legally go away:
IGNORE THEM AT ALL COSTS. Stay off their web pages, don't give their youtubes any views, don't create topics of them in forums, don't invite them to your talk show/news show for interviews, just don't even THINK of them.

These people thrive for attention. We give them attention and for that they are going to stick around.

Westboro Baptist Church - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
They are sick and disgusting people. Anybody got a watter-cannon??? I would like to "express" my feelings towards them - in fact "towards", as in "in their face".

They're good, upstanding Christians. You can't preach the Bible without preaching the hatred of God.

That is a complete falsehood. God is Love. PERIOD. I can love my children without loving their actions. People understand that perfectly well and then forget the concept when it is convenient.

I believe they're a perfect example of why any church making political statements should pay the same taxes any indivudual pays to enjoy that privilege.

They asked: What Would Jesus Do? Then did the exact opposite.
