Photo: What, doesn't your preacher ask the same of you?

by Jeremy Hooper

From time to time, we like to check in with our ol' two step pardners at the Westboro Baptist Church to see for what, exactly, they are praying this week. Their newest sign:

Picture 8-35

Ah, yes, that old classic Biblical principle of seeking children's deaths. What's that in, the book of Infanticide, Chapters 1- Nothing Above 12? Or is the "Thy shall not live to see puberty" verse in Kidmurder, 6:66?

::sigh:: We can never keep those straight!

Either way, however, we do know that this, like most of Westboro's prayers, can only be culled from the King Batsh*t Crazy version of the good book.

***The photo can be found on Westboro's main site. However, a link from us is something these kids will never receive!

Your thoughts

I wish it requited a "king batsh*t crazy" version of the bible to get those messages, but unfortunately all it requires is a "kind batsh*t crazy" *filter* on what is already there...

Anything you get out of the bible is viewed through a filter of your own prejudices. Viewing the bible without any prejudices whatsoever leads you to believe that it is too self-contradictory to warrant anyone taking it seriously...

I have nothing but respect for those whose filters cause them to view the bible as being full of love, kindness and forgiveness. It says a lot about *them*, if nothing about the book they quote.

Google: LOVING GOD'S HATE for an expose on the Rev. Fred Phelps and his disturbed family. The article was published by the Topeka Capitol-Journal, Phelps' hometown newspaper.

A few of the interesting items: several of Phelps' estranged children allege severe child abuse while living in the Phelps home; the details of Phelps' disbarment by the state of Kansas and the Federal Courts for unethical behavior; several of Phelps' business dealings.

Although this article has been on the Capitol-Journal website for years, Phelps and his lawyer children have never sued for libel.
