Has he stopped doing the devil’s work? No. However, radio host Mike Gallahger offered Phelps an hour on his radio show in consideration for NOT picketing at innocent Amish girls’ funerals.
Phelps of course QUICKLY took up the offer. So the picket is off. However, I don’t like the idea of him getting heard on the radio, either. At least this way he’s not directly hurting innocent girls’ families like he was planning to do, all for publicity.
His website says all material can be used for any reason, so here is a sign held outside a soldier’s funeral in Independence, MO, September 28th. Keep in mind that the soldier was NOT in fact gay.
Since his entire family is lawyers, I will list the source of this photo, but I ask that you NOT visit the site. If publicity is his game, then don’t give him the satisfaction of giving him hits on his website. http://godhatesfags.com
It’s completely inexcusable (not to mention the fact that the graphics are hysterical.) Actually, seeing that signs mostly makes me snort Cherry Pepsi out my nose, because it’s just too darned funny seeing gay stick people in compromising positions.
Imagine you have a little kid and they ask you what the people in the picture are doing… would you want to explain ANY sex act to your child? I sure wouldn’t. Phelps and his posse of 3 family members need to find something constructive to do.
I seem to recall Jesus acting a tad differently than the Phelps family. Two examples come to mind. One, Jesus drove the PHARISEES out of the temple with a whip. They were the religious leaders of the time, and they had become judgemental twits… people who saw nothing but the letter of the law, rather than seeing the person. Sounds familiar, eh?
The second example is Jesus’ friend Mary Magdelene… a prostitute. Now, the law of the Bible says that prostitutes should be stoned. Hmmm…. doesn’t sound like God is big on prostitution. If you were a twit, you might expect that Jesus, the son of God, would want her dead. However, what really happened was that Jesus was friends with her, and hung out with her, and she washed his feet with her expensive perfume. Sounds like perhaps his love had a positive impact and helped to turn her from her prostitution. Doesn’t sound like our friends from Westboro Baptist Church, does it?
Yes, the Bible teaches right and wrong. God condemns certain behavior. But the example from the Bible set by Jesus NEVER involved hatred or threats towards people who really just needed an example of real love. Jesus only really got ticked off at the religious leaders who were too thickheaded to understand the difference between witnessing and judging.
It’s God’s job to judge, Fred. Let’s leave the heavy lifting to Him, eh?
