    Don't try to complicate things by extending the problem by 2000 years. The commandments given by Jesus were simple and few. They stand the test of time. You want to muddy the water, and make Westboro the same as Christians on this website. Want to get called out for personal insults upstairs, keep it up.

    Blackdog told me that the Westboro Baptist Church people are Christians because they accept the dimity of Jesus Christ. According to him, that is the definition of "Christian".

    Eeehhh....ya...kind of. It is more complicated than that. There must also be some attempt to live by Christ's teachings. This church seems to ignore some very important teachings. They don't seem to love their neighbors, they don't seem to understand that God is the final arbiter of the after life....if I took the time, I'm sure I could find a whole host of things that they do wrong. But the jist is, you can't say "I love Jesus" and run around intentionally violating so many of his teachings and expect that that is fine.


    My point is, just because you accept Jesus as your savior doesn't mean you are knowledgeable in his teachings nor exemplify its representation. This church seems to be based in hatred rather than love and I don't find that to be very Christian. Of course, that is God's place to be the final judge...I'm just observing.
    You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love.For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.”

    Satan is busy digging a new basement for this bucket of sewage.

    And no, this guy is not a Christian any more than Hitler or the grand wizard of the Ku Klux Klan.

    Entirely possible. But that doesn't have any effect on the fact that I personally think Phelps et al. are some of the biggest douchebags in the USA today.

    As far as being more wrong or less wrong in their religious beliefs, I don't have a clue.

    As far as being "real Christians", I couldn't tell you.

    But as far as them being Grade A peices of ****... well, I dont need God to agree with me in order for me to say "absolutely".

    Precisely what I have been trying to say Tucker.

    In your belief Westboro are not christains, but that is your belief, you cannot know - and that is my point. Christains pick and choose many Jesus passages. I don't see many christains selling all their possessions, giving it to the poor and living a life of poverty - but thats what Jesus said.

    Here is a video that gets my point across.

    why do people continue to give these nutjobs the attention they seek. I'd love to see what these people would do if everyone actually ignored them entirely.
    I use a lot of satire and sarcasm so keep that in mind when reading my posts.
