Breaking News: God Hates Fags
Before my fingers cooled down from the last church story, this one hits. A federal jury in Baltimore has ordered the Westboro Baptist Church of Topeka, Kansas to pay $10.9 million to the family of an American soldier who died in Iraq. Seems the church was protesting at the funeral of Lance Cpl. Matthew Snyder. Excellent call by the jury.
Church members showed up at Snyder’s funeral chanting derogatory slogans and holding picket signs with messages including “God Hates Fags.”
What an ablsolutely un-christian thing to do. These assholes have no concept of what the church is supposed to represent. I thought tolerance for all of God’s children was a basic tenant of the church. And I’m not sure I ever heard, during my christian upbringing, that God hates anybody. I must have been home sick that Sunday.
Seriously, once again the fascist, Bush loving christians (I don’t capitalize that on purpose) expose themselves as the sick, racist hypocrites that they are. They of course don’t have any skeletons in their closets and I’m sure that there is not one gay person, man woman or child, in any of their families. And just to prove it, they have their kids wear T-shirts to make sure everyone knows it! Think these girls even know what a “fag” is? Think they have a chance in hell of growing up with a healthy christian attitude?
I don’t speak for anyone else but myself but I would much rather have gay next door neighbors than intolerant pigs like these folks.
