Gay-Bashing, Hellfire Preaching Westboro Baptist Church of Topeka, Kansas Is Coming to Canada

The holy roller,hellfire and brimstone church that calls itself Westboro baptist from Kansas, USA has decided to once more infringe on the good senses of Canadians by threatening to enter the country and protest a childrens’ play called the Laramie Project that details the murder and death of a gay man, Matthew Shepherd. The play has run in several locations with the most recent version of the play being hosted by a school in Uxbridge,Ontario. The wacko church from Dorothy land has stated that they will be sending protesters to protest the school kids’ play and that they hope that Canada burns in hell for allowing the play to go on.
This is not the first time in recent memory that the wackoes from Kansas have threatened the sensibilities of the Canadian public. Last spring when a greyhound bus passenger was beheaded by another passenger near Winnipeg the Westboro people decided that they would attempt to interfere with that funeral and protest it by saying he died because canada has gay marriage.
This past summer the group attempted to protest the launching of a play that was aptly called..The Pastor Phelps Project: A fundamentalist cabaret.(id pay to see that one!)
Personally I think we should have a good old Canadian greeting corps waiting for these people when they cross the border and we should show them that Canada is a better place than the hole they crawled out of. Pastor Fred deserves a swift kick in the nads…over and over again.

    I hear Christians bitching about how moderate Muslims don’t rise up and denounce militant jihadists on a regular basis.

    So where are these moderate Christians when it comes time to rise up and denounce Christian fundamentalist jihadists?

    Where are the moderate Baptists? Why are they silent? They’re silent for the same reason moderate Muslims are silent. They’re silent because secretly, in their heart of hearts, they agree with the militants. They support them with their silence.

    Good reason for that. Religion destroys the mind and even those christians who appear moderate have the same underpinning doctrine and can quietly relate to the more crazy religious folk. For example, Obama attracted the religious left and they are the ones who voted in Prop 8.

    Religion is worst for your mind that lead or mercury.

    This is not true of all Christians. I personally sent the Westboro Baptist Church an email stating how wrong they were to protest funerals and how it would do more harm than good. They never responded to it. As a matter of fact on their website, they state that they will ignore emails sent to them that they don’t agree with. Many well meaning Christians tried to no avail to get them to see the light but they are being willfully stubborn. Please don’t lump all of us into the same category.

    You’re correct, not all christians are crazy or extreme.
    The moderates make the fundies go nuts. You can blame your moderate beliefs for the actions of the insane fundementalist Westboro Baptists. The fundies hate you. They do not like you. They blame your moderate views for polluting their fundie worlds.
    No, not all christians are the same, but they are all equally responsible for this fundemental quackery.
    The best thing is to keep religion in your homes or churches. Taking religion to the streets is offensive not only to non-beleivers, but it is offensive to the fundies, and it is offensive to persons of other faiths.(whose god is the right one according to them)
    Nope, you aren’t all the same, but you do all have the same disease, that is religion.

    ‘This is not true of all Christians.”

    Your own case illustrates the problem nicely. You think that sending the Westboro’s an email does the trick. You’re off the hook. Now you can feel good about yourself.

    Not by a long shot. Did you write a letter to the editor? Did you try to organize your congregation to make a public statement to denounce the activities of the Westboro Baptists? Did you do anything even remotely as PUBLIC as the Westboro people did. To all intents and purposes you have remained silent.

    They get headlines. You write a private email and post to an obscure blog. You may feel you’re not part of the problem but you sure as hell aren’t part of the solution.
