Westboro Baptist is not a Church

Lance Cpl. Matthew Synder died at age 20 in a Humvee accident in Iraq on March 3, 2006. Westboro Baptist Church of Topeka, Kansas protested outside of his funeral, held in Westminster, Maryland, with banners stating "God Hates America" and "Semper Fi Fags." They blame Synder’s death on the sins of America and his divorced parents. Snyder's father sued the church for intentional infliction of emotional distress. A Baltimore federal jury awarded a multimillion-dollar verdict, which was overturned on appeal. On October 6, 2010, the Supreme Court heard the case, and we now await the decision of the highest court in the land.
The Supreme Court has taken on the battle between Westboro Baptist Church’s First Amendment rights and the family’s right to conduct their son’s funeral in privacy and with dignity. Christians, however, should be more concerned about the battle between love and hate; between good and evil. Westboro Baptist is supposed to be a church, but their conduct is unbecoming of Christians.
Westboro Baptists‘protest signs say, “God Hates America”.
John 3:16-17 says, “(16)For God loved the world so much that he gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life. (17) God sent his Son into the world not to judge the world, but to save the world through him.”
The group thanks God for dead soldiers, fallen children of America’s father’s and mother’s.
Matthew 18:14 says, “…it is not my heavenly Father’s will that even one of these little ones should perish.”
Westboro Baptist’s members hate homosexuals.
Colossians 3:12-13 says,” (12) Since God chose you to be the holy people he loves, you must clothe yourselves with tenderhearted mercy, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience. (13) Make allowance for each other’s faults, and forgive anyone who offends you. Remember, the Lord forgave you, so you must forgive others.”
Westboro Baptist’s members claim they have the right to free speech under the First Amendment.
Galatians 5:13 says, “For you have been called to live in freedom, my brothers and sisters. But don’t use your freedom to satisfy your sinful nature. Instead, use your freedom to serve one another in love.”
Westoboro Baptist is a “church” that promotes hate.
Ephesians 4:15 says, “Instead, we will speak the truth in love, growing in every way more and more like Christ, who is the head of his body, the church.”
At Matthew 24:11, Jesus says, “And many false prophets will appear and will deceive many people.” Don’t let Westboro Baptist deceive you.
