    I am usually very slow to say someone isn't a Christian, but I assure you that the Westboro Baptist Church is one of the furthest groups from representing Christ. Which is a vital part of Christianity - imagine that. Whatever plans they have with picketing the CT school funeral, please know that they are a man-corrupted group and not God-corrupted. God hates our sin and there is punishment without Christ, but He sent His son, Jesus, to save the world not to condemn it - we condemn ourselves. John 3:17 "For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him." (ESV)

    I don't see anywhere that this is a false or made up story, but I certainly hope this story is not true. I pray that these family be shown Christ's love from real Christians.

    These are horrible evil people. I can't even believe that they read the same Bible or believe in the same God as me. It makes no sense at all.

    This is as heartless and as cold as it gets. it's hard enough to be a Christian and these people make it even harder.

    It's churches like Westboro , that make me glad that we DON'T Have government enforced religion, as it could just as easily be this version verses "My" version that is thought in schools. (Though some also wouldn't like "My" version thought either vs another version)

    Thank you for the links. That is crazy... I don't even know what to say, I don't know who is more of a nut... the protesters or the appealing judge. Yes there is freedom of speech, but he died for his country so there could be freedom of speech!! Its like asking someone for help then slapping them in the face after they save you

    Westboro's going to step on the wrong peoples' toes one of these days, and the result will be very unpleasant.

    Can these people not see how un-Christlike they're being? Do they not see they are driving people AWAY from God? Absolutely disgusting!

    Sorry about the link. Anyways I pray they don't make it there as well. These people do not show Christs love they give Christians a bad wrap. It is frustrating...

    I say, let them make it there, and I hope the whole town and surrounding towns show up to block their paths! If I were a pastor, I'd be gathering as many volunteers from my church and community to form a counter protest and keep these low-lifes from the event!

    That "pastor" is not of God... he teaches hate. That church is not a Baptist. No Baptist church I have ever heard of teaches his doctrine. However, he is giving Baptist a black eye and causes our work here harder.

    I know it is unchristian like, but this man and his church makes me angry!:mad:

    I live in El Paso Texas, Here is Ft Bliss Texas a Army Base and a National cementry just a few years ago there were soldiers come back to be buried here. These terrorist showed up. The signs and the total disrespect for these soldiers, Made me angry I am a Baptist Preacher, I am also a Veteran and I served this nation for 20 years as a Soldier. I gave those terrorist the right to say what they said because I fought for freedom. The soldiers they disrespected also gave them the right. You notice I did not call them Baptist, they would have to repent before I would even consider calling them anything.
