Of course NOT ! To decide before you hear the case is another story. If I said I would acquit the hero who bombed that abortion clinic perhaps you could understand my point. When we start to decide who should be murdered and who should be allowed to live based on our PERSONAL opinions and beliefs, aren't we just like the WBC loons ?

I think they are a cult and should be monitored and eventually raided by the Feds.

Westboro isn't a church, it's a tiny inbred cult.
As sick as these creeps are, it's sicker that
they get the attention that they desire.
They exploit our tolerance for abhorrent speech.
I like the "Patriot Guard Riders" approach.

As a Christian, I consider them heretics who should be officially cast out of the church. Not because they "make us look bad" (although they do) but because they distort God's loving character. They take his hatred for sin and pervert it into a hatred for people. They are deliberately distorting God's image.

God is love. He sent his son to die for our sins. Not to condemn the world. John 3:17

Any poster that said, the more publicity they get, the more they will do it is right on target.

It's just like street gangs. The more notariety (sp?) they get, the more their activities escalate. They do not "believe" in their cause, they are just looking for more fame.

That said - God bless our troops.

If what many fundamentalist Christians say is true, we may not have to worry about them after May 21st of this year. Apparently, that's the "next" supposed date for the rapture.

Sentence 1 says leave it to your god thing; sentence 2 says you get to decide.
Day in and day out on CD, you see Moderator cut: language spewing hatred.
No different from the WBC.

Having been in the military doesn't make you a special class.
You're not saints, you're just people who CHOSE the military as a job or career.

I have had the misfortune of being face to face with Fred on many occasions. I lived in Kansas City and every weekend he came to town and stood on the corner of Nichols fountain with his hate. He always protested the gay pride festivals. He actually backed down once and left suddenly at one. guess he realized he was alone and with few witnesses, no one would have raised a hand against him. The only hate came from him. I have never seen a more hate filled person in my life, truly vile.

People are mislead by his name, WBC does not mean he is a Christian religion. It is a family cult and freds words are all they go by. There is nothing about them that is practicing Christianity. They better hope Karma doesn't exist with their beliefs and they are right cause the mountain is high for them.

Wow - the only real hate message I see is this one. With all the other messages about WBC, with not one supporting their actions, why pick this one to respond to. There's no contradiction. The message to which you responded is right, and many, many other messages herein are saying the same thing. 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.
