Because Joe Biden has the nerve to pray with a rosary.:eek:

From their website:

WBC to picket the funeral of Beau Biden, son of Joe Biden who holds a position of power in today’s Doomed America with a very public platform with which he could give the glory to God for this event. Rather, news reports indicate the elder Biden will be praying the rosary. The Lord Jesus Christ plainly said to keep yourselves from idols at 1 John 5:21. Yo, Joe! Start reading the Bible and OBEY and get rid of the goofy beads. They are an idol made with hands and cannot save you, Beau or anyone!

Utterly disgusting attention whores. I'd say that they'll give Christianity a bad name but that ship has sailed.

The Westboro Baptist Church are attention seeking Trolls, just like Lawdog.

The best way to deal with them is to ignore them and let them rot on the vine.

War veteran? That's not possible. Everyone knows only wingnuts serve in the military. They're also the only people that work and love their country. I'm told such True Patriots can fart the Battle Hymn of the Republic.

Contemplate the differences between the WBC and your extreme religious right whack job. Aside from WBCs hatred of the military, there isn't much difference at all. Seriously, think about it.

Tremble in the presence of He Who Walks Behind the Rows!

What is in the water in this country? What is it that perverts the gospel so much? Do you wonder that we left the Church or perhaps it would be more accurate to say the Church left us.

Because Religion is a very effective way for a few people to control and manipulate a substantial proportion of the population.

Only if you let them, it does not take an over abundance of grey cells to see through their lies. Before my parents married Mom taught Sunday School. My Bible is inscribed 'for perfect attendance at Sunday School' yet I can see through the masquerade (not that my parents were religious fanatics as they certainly were not). Perhaps they are simply used to letting someone else make all their decisions? What a sad way to live one's life.

In a way, Robertson is worse because, while he puts out the same hateful things, he does so in a way which has a veneer of gentility, gentleness and its own internal logic. WBC is so hateful, so crazed and so over the top that most people are turned off in the first 30 seconds.

Never thought of it that way, but you're right.

They both have the same agenda of hate.

The Pat Robertson types just have a slicker sales pitch for it.

Biblical (aka Evangelical) Christians are those who recognize that religion, good works, philosophy, etc. will never save mankind from their sinful, damaged nature. Only through a living vital relationship with Christ can do that.

I know very well what 'evengelistas' are, usually narrow minded, holier than thou types, in my experience. Looks like you are dodging the question. So, once again, no heaven for Methodists and Catholics?

Really? Aside from WBCs hated of the military, what exactly would the differences be?

I remind you that they only claim America is doomed because of same sex marriage, abortion and our military adventures. So, again, aside from the hating on the military thing, what are the differences?

Indeed. The biggest buildings here in Kansas are churches. If the money spent to build those monstrosities were used to help the poor, homeless, sick and indigent, there would be NO poor, homeless, sick and indigent.

We are humans. Humans are tribal, just as our primate ancestors were and other living primates are. (Okay, they're "troupal".) We will always invent ways to distinguish "us" from "them". It's one of the survival strategies that has, after a fashion, worked for us. Evolving beyond that will be difficult, probably impossible
