Westboro Baptist Church brings shame on our Lord. And these things they do does not help none of the churches in America. It does not help us the least bit to win souls to Christ.


So very true!

It's obvious these people are not interested in winning lost souls to Christ but only in pronouncing their unbiblical judgements and declarations upon anyone who disagrees with them.

I like Julie Banderas a lot. She has impressed me before in that she openly, on live television, talked about accepting Christ as savior when she was younger.

Tony Snow was a really nice man. He sure displayed a lot more fruit of the Spirit than many Christians I know. He had great moral character and from what I understand his faith in Christ was very important to him.

Fred does have a checkered past. On another thread either myself or someone else (I guess it had to be one or the other! :lol: ) posted an article about Fred's past.

It's been conjectured, with some very convincing evidence and logic, that the Westboro cult is actually a fraud, perpetrated by Liberals and Homosexual Activists to create a "boogie man" that homosexuals can point to to justify gaining special rights. Fred Phelps was active in politics as a Democrat before he suddenly became the leader of America's weirdest cult.


That actually makes sense.

A bad monkey? These guys are going farther and farther off the deep end. :bonk:


That was my reaction, too. Can you imagine the response of the person they said that to? Oy!

Every time I heard about this group picketing someone's funeral I can't help but giggle and think about how many people will be picketing their funeral some day. :eek :duh

I think part of it, John, is that people are hoping they will shut up and go away.

Tony Snow was a breath of fresh air as far as reporting goes. He made a great press secretary and I really wish he'd never had the cancer come back. I hope he was saved. I don't know - and neither do these people. Do they honestly believe that what they are doing will draw the lost to the Saviour? Somehow I don't think so. I don't think they truly care about the lost. But I bet they tell each other they are the remnant of which Christ spoke. Maybe some groups should go picket their church.


These people have been around long enough it's obvious they are not going away. They garner far too much free press with their message of hate from these "Baptists" going into living rooms around the country. Real Christians need to hold up real Christians signs, demonstrate Christian love and have their counter-demonstration showing up each time the press decides to cover these people.

Yes, Tony Snow seemed like a decent guy. He had a good attitude and it's a shame to see such stricken down so young. As you say, I have no idea whether he was saved or not and neither do these people.

It's obvious they are not concerned about winning souls to Christ, only about making their own personal judgements of who God hates and who God is or has condemned to Hell.

Their infamous "God hates fags" signs are completely unscriptural. God hates sin, including homosexuality, but God loves all sinners and wishes to see them repent and accept Christ as their Saviour and Lord. We need to get this message out each time these servants of Satan spew forth their twisting of the Word of God.

I would have liked to seen it when the Fox News reporter Julie let them have it!

These people are so far outside the will of God and yet they carry the Baptist name on high for all to see and thus bring reproach upon Baptists and worst of all upon Christ.

In every place they appear we should be seeing the real Christians rising up in protest against their lies and false proclamations. Why isn't this happening?

Infamous Kansas church: Tony Snow burns in hell
Westboro Baptists plan picket at funeral of 'very bad monkey'

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

By Joe Kovacs
2008 WorldNetDaily


A Kansas church well-known for its protests at the funerals of fallen American soldiers plans to picket at this week's funeral of former Press Secretary Tony Snow, declaring that Snow is "a very bad monkey" who is "now burning in hell."

"He had a platform, he was given some small talent by his Creator. He was an unfaithful steward, and is now residing in hell," says a schedule on the website of the Westboro Baptist Church.

"Each opportunity he had to faithfully report what the servants at WBC had to tell this country/world, Tony Snow besmirched and vilified the words of God and the people of God. Thereby being a party to the crime of passing laws to make the preaching of the gospel to this adulterous and sinful generation [equals] criminal activity. That is a very bad monkey!"

The announcement goes on to quote a variety of biblical verses concerning "scribes," and closes by stating: "You see there is nothing worse than a scribe who has gone away from their primary duty to faithfully report the facts as they ARE! And how appropriate that this brute, vain beast of a brat was raised Catholic, but then determined like his forefathers that oops! he'd rather be a filthy Episcopalian instead. God hates Tony Snow, and that is why he is now burning in hell."

Snow, who took on duties as President Bush's spokesman in September 2006, died of colon cancer early Saturday morning in Washington, D.C. He was 53.

The president and first lady Laura Bush will attend Snow's funeral Thursday.

"I just hope they understand that Tony was loved here in the White House," Bush said.

"He would unfailingly challenge the premise of many of the questions. I'd never seen this before in a press secretary," said radio host Rush Limbaugh. "He challenged the premise and told them that they were wrong in the narrative or the storyline that they were tacking, and this caused the president's supporters, those who had seen it, to stand up and cheer."

Reaction to the planned protest by the Topeka-based church is already being posted online.

One writer stated: "These people are not now nor have they ever been Christians. They are charlatans, frauds, cultists and dirt worshippers. They worship hate, vengeance, retribution, clay idols, all. They are no better than Hamas or any other Muslim terrorist cult except maybe they don't blow themselves up. As far as I am concerned, a police detail should be there to preserve the family's hour of mourning and grief. These bastards have no right to bother the family. None. And if they were to get pepper sprayed or Tasered, well, that would just suck to be them now wouldn't it?

Ironically, as WND previously reported, one of the leaders of the church was already condemned to hell on national television by Fox News host Julie Banderas.

"You are the devil!" Banderas exclaimed to Shirley Phelps-Roper during a heated 2006 exchange over the issue of military funeral protests. "If you believe in the Bible, miss, you're going to hell!"

"What would you do if you had a son in the military?" an outraged Banderas asked. "Would you damn him to hell as well? Because you're gonna join him there if you had a son!"

Agree with all. Around here we baracade the streets with bikers so they can not get close to any of the military funerals. It is amazing if the town has 500 people there will be well over a 1000 bikers there to line the streets. The bikers come from 100 of miles take off work and everything. The Westboro people have not come back to our area since the last time they showed up and witnessed this.
