Westboro Baptist Church coming to KY


There was a recent fire in Bardstown, Kentucky that claimed the lives of 10 people. The Westboro Baptist Church is planning on protesting at the funeral because “the victims’ deaths are God’s punishment for a filthy nation that has disobeyed God’s will.”

Isn’t the theology of this church considered the Deuteronimist theory from the OT? They don’t recognize the difference between God causing and allowing. They think all human pain and suffering is a direct result of sinful behavior. Punishment from God .


The leaders and members of the Westboro “Baptist” Church are just a bunch of malicious, self-righteous sickos who take delight in other peoples’ misfortunes. They are disgusting.


I don’t understand how they can even draw that conclusion. Were the people who died working for homosexuals or something?? :confused:
