So I came across a documentary, one of many, on the infamous Phelps family and their congregation - The Westboro Baptist Church. They mostly target homosexuality, but as I have learned another major one on their list is Catholicism. They even have a website called priestsrapeboys.com
Now these people really and truly believe that they are obeying God and that God intentionally illustrates catastrophe, death, and is punishing the US . Now, what I don’t understand is what makes them think that they are right in the way that they interpret scripture. Shirley Phelps is always saying “scripture says, scripture says” but I’m pretty sure I can find scripture that opposes the venomous hate that they spew when they are picketing fallen soldiers’ funerals.
I heard her saying that the Catholic church is the whore of Babylon and that all of us Catholics are going to hell. Anyone familiar with these people?
I have seen that some of her children have finally left the church - even main people like her daughter Megan who was a pillar in the Church - and they now have a lot of guilt for the things they have done. But they still struggle with the fear of going to hell. Apparently, on the WBC are going to Heaven. :shrug:
