    Westboro hates everythign that isn't Westboro, and everyone in the USA returns the favor. One thing you'll see Libs and Cons agree on ALL THE TIME on DP is how much we ALL despise Westboro.
    I haven't seen the evangelical community come out and clearly and without reservations condemn Westboro for its use of Christianity as a platform to foment hate. And that's troubling.

    Horse ****. I've yet to hear one single Evangel say a good word about them. We despise them because ignorant people tar us by association.

    I didn't say evangelicals have praised them (though I'm sure some have). I've said they haven't condemned them. And that's troubling.

    did you pull that number out of a hat?

    you have no data to support such a claim.

    why are you making things up, demonizing those you have hate for.

    yes that church, is off the deep end.......but come on, dont say things you cant posibliy know.

    for someone who professes to be a christian, you seem to have a lot of hate in your heart.

    Now there's a nonprofit who should be revoked by the IRS. What good could they possibly do?

    so what exactly are you looking for here? Want Billy Graham to get on TV, or what? It's not like "evangelical christianity" is some monolithic structure with a handful of top leaders who can speak with authority on X topic.

    Remind us who not to be maybe? Nothing unifies people like they are in opposition to these fruit loops. I suspect the Klan and the Black Panthers would high Five each other in one of those counter protests.

    The articles on there are still very good and often wind up here on threads verbatim. There are so many splinter wings to the Repubs, all trying to out-fright each other. Which party do you suppose Westboro votes for the most? Do rightie talkers criticize them as lefties do? NO

    You don't think there are tens of millions of evangelicals in the US. Google it.

    Yeah, for starters. Evangelicals have indulged in anti-gay rhetoric, some of it not too different from Westboro. (Remember 9-11 lesbian witches!) They need to distance themselves from those who do the same.

    If evangelicals want to make heretical and ignorant interpretations of the gospel to indulge their fear and hatred of gays, that's their business. But at least they should pretend to condemn the outright ugliness of Westboro.
