Some questions will seem very obvious and I should know the answer to. Which some of them I do know the answer to but I am not aloud to reference my self. Also I need to ask a few question that I believe my audience will ask. So I again apologize if the questions seem self explanatory, offensive or undermining. Please when answering question state where in the Bible it would support the answer, if possible. Thank you very much for your time and help.
1) When did the protests begin and why?
2) Why do you protest military funerals?
3) The military is run by the government. It is the government that has excepted homosexuality. Why not protest the government rather than the soldiers funerals?
4) What does Westboro Baptist Church aim to accomplish by protesting military funerals?
5) Why does God hate homosexuality?
6) What is the relation between God hating homosexuals and military personnel?
7) Do you think it is disrespectful to protest at a persons funeral?
8) The first admendment was given to us through the victory of the revolutionary war. Is it not a sin to use the powers or rights given to you by the military, since you protest the military?
9) It is a sin to be a homosexual, it is a sin to kill, so is it any less of a sin to pray for the death of soldiers? If so why?
Again please dont take offense to any of the questions. I appreciate your time and help on answering the questions.
Dear Friend –
Much of what you ask is covered again and again on our web pages and in the blogs, so please look on the web pages under FAQ and do some searches and get good words, meanwhile, here are some answers:
1. Please see good words about this question on the Documentary “Hatemongers” which you can find on our web pages and on YouTube I believe, and many other places. In short, there is a park close to Westboro where fags were having sex. It was beyond question that it was going on, and everyone admitted it, a local TV station did an undercover story showing it. Westboro understood that no sex of ANY KIND should be going on in a public park, let alone the most used public park in the city. So we naively thought that if we shined a light on this abomination, the city fathers would get after it and the matter would be resolved.
WE WERE WRONG! God was going to have this ministry, and he led us along this path until we saw what it was we were doing and supposed to be doing. Like the prophets of old, that preached to doomed people, we preach to doomed people. We are now in our 22nd year, and we thank and praise God for every whit of it! We have nothing to do in this life except tend faithfully to this ministry and serve the saints of God.
2. Along the path, 9/11 happened. We warned that God was going to do a thing that would cause your ears to tingle, then he did. So we warned, if you don’t repent, he will do worse and more and he will destroy you, because he will NOT apologize to Sodom. Here are some good words on that: http://telly.com/JN457
Further, before 9/11 or either of our current wars, as WBC faithfully stood on the streets of this nation to warn the living that if USA goes the way of Sodom, she will suffer Sodom’s fate, this nation began to experiment with our liberties and lives, and in short, became a terror to us. GOD, pursuant to his precious promises to his servants, is the avenger of all such. The day came with Doomed USA set off an IED at WBC. In those days, no one knew what an IED was. Now, everyone knows what an IED is. God avenges his people daily for what this nation did to us, what you wanted to do to us and what you tried to do to us. Now God is your terror! WOE to you.
When we saw those amazing events unfolding, and also saw the military LYING to the people and turning the sad death events, where the children of this nation were bowing down to the sword of your enemies, I say, using those death events, turning them into patriotic pep rallies, WE HAD TO PUT A BALANCE TO THOSE LIES! Thus the funeral pickets. Remember, we had held over 49,000 pickets, less than 1,000 have had anything to do with funerals. But they are needful, and our Lord Jesus Christ used the death events to WARN, to wit: “There were present at that season some that told him of the Galilaeans, whose blood Pilate had mingled with their sacrifices. And Jesus answering said unto them, Suppose ye that these Galilaeans were sinners above all the Galilaeans, because they suffered such things? I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish. Or those eighteen, upon whom the tower in Siloam fell, and slew them, think ye that they were sinners above all men that dwelt in Jerusalem? I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.” Luke 13:1-5.
3. EACH HUMAN HAS A SOUL! This is a government OF the people, BY the people and FOR the people. Representative government. In short, they do what you like! We picket it all!! We picket from the White House to the Pentagon to the local courthouse and dog catcher and we picket your idols and your schools and your so-called churches – we picket it all!! We preach to the world, here is our commission: “And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.” Matthew 28:18-20.
LOOK at those amazing, comforting words of life and peace! If you believe those words, YAY! If you don’t KNOW them AND BELIEVE them, WOE to you!
4. Westboro aims to accomplish EXACTLY what we have accomplished! We have put the wine glass of God’s fury to the lips of this generation and we have MADE you drink. And when you rage and persecute and prosecute, by the tender, kind, loving mercies of our Lord, we have stood fast. WE WILL NOT SAY that God is a liar, and you cannot make us! We have caused you to KNOW that there is a God and he is doing all things in this earth. You can run your mouths from now to eternity and beyond, and you will never be able to unbind these cords of truth that God has permitted, nay, given us the HONOUR of wrapping you with! Look at this promise from God to his people on this subject: “Praise ye the LORD. Sing unto the LORD a new song, and his praise in the congregation of saints. Let Israel rejoice in him that made him: let the children of Zion be joyful in their King. Let them praise his name in the dance: let them sing praises unto him with the timbrel and harp. For the LORD taketh pleasure in his people: he will beautify the meek with salvation. Let the saints be joyful in glory: let them sing aloud upon their beds. Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, and a twoedged sword in their hand; To execute vengeance upon the heathen, and punishments upon the people; To bind their kings with chains, and their nobles with fetters of iron; To execute upon them the judgment written: this honour have all his saints. Praise ye the LORD.” Psalm 149:1-9.
We would that you understood those words and loved them and would hear the voice of the Lord and FLEE the wrath to come, but as we see that God will not give that blessing except as he sees fit, we say PRAISE GOD – it is a work of God and it is marvelous in our eyes!
- The Bible answer to this is many-fold, but I will give the three that come to my mind:
- It is abomination! “Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.” Leviticus 18:22.
- God does what HE WILLS with his creation! “And at the end of the days I Nebuchadnezzar lifted up mine eyes unto heaven, and mine understanding returned unto me, and I blessed the most High, and I praised and honoured him that liveth for ever, whose dominion is an everlasting dominion, and his kingdom is from generation to generation: And all the inhabitants of the earth are reputed as nothing: and he doeth according to his will in the army of heaven, and among the inhabitants of the earth: and none can stay his hand, or say unto him, What doest thou? At the same time my reason returned unto me; and for the glory of my kingdom, mine honour and brightness returned unto me; and my counsellors and my lords sought unto me; and I was established in my kingdom, and excellent majesty was added unto me. Now I Nebuchadnezzar praise and extol and honour the King of heaven, all whose works are truth, and his ways judgment: and those that walk in pride he is able to abase.” Daniel 4:34-37.
- SHUT UP asking why of God! I consider copying and pasting Romans 9, but we have done that so many times, and you don’t care. So I would humbly beg you to read Romans 9 like you mean it.
5. The people of this nation have a mantra: “It is OK to be gay.” The military is made up of PEOPLE! If you are not standing with WBC on the streets denouncing that sin and warning your neighbor that it will bring your destruction, you are WITH the people that say “It is OK to be gay!” That duty to warn is the essence of the FULFILLING of your God-COMMANDED DUTY to Love Your Neighbor. See these words: http://twitvid.com/OZ8ME
6. God had no respect for your dead and in hell rebel. Do you know that some of those rebels are torn, BY GOD, limb from limb. Is it respectful for God to get right in the face of those parents, families, teachers, “preachers” and leaders of the communities across the nation and dash your best and brightest to pieces? Even so, we do our duty to you! We have respect for the commandments of God and your perverting of words and phrases does not change what we are doing.
7. That question is a mouth full of lies. Let me fix the question and then answer it.
Q: Is it good for WBC to be thankful for the crowning jewel (First Amendment) of all the beautiful garments (Constitution, and everything that has blessed and kept Doomed American all her days) that GOD GAVE to this nation, keeping her and leading her from her infancy, as GOD raised this nation up out of the mire and made her a super power, a force to reckoned with in the WHOLE EARTH? And is it good for Westboro, seeing that God has set that First Amendment in place, and given us ALL things that we need (from $$ to fund, highways to drive on, airline systems to fly on, courts to testify in, mouths and wisdom and words to speak truth that is given us in that very hour that we need it, from the Holy Spirit, etc.) to do this ministry, I say, is it not proper and required that we engage in this ministry with ALL our heart, soul, mind and strength?
A: YES, YES, YES!
8. OBEY the commandments of God. Get over to Jeremiah where 4 times we are instructed that it is sin to pray for the nation that God will destroy. Read the Psalms, where you find many, many, many imprecatory prayers by the servants of God. We are not killing anyone, but we are calling upon God day and night to avenge his covenant and to avenge his people that have been sorely abused and misused by this nation for the cause that we tell you truth for your good. The Bible is so full of those kinds of words and prayers that it wearies me to think, but I will give you a small sample:
“And the LORD God of their fathers sent to them by his messengers, rising up betimes, and sending; because he had compassion on his people, and on his dwelling place: But they mocked the messengers of God, and despised his words, and misused his prophets, until the wrath of the LORD arose against his people, till there was no remedy.” 2 Chronicles 36:15-16.
“Let them be confounded that persecute me, but let not me be confounded: let them be dismayed, but let not me be dismayed: bring upon them the day of evil, and destroy them with double destruction.” Jeremiah 17:18.
“And shall not God avenge his own elect, which cry day and night unto him, though he bear long with them? I tell you that he will avenge them speedily.” Luke 18:7-8.
If I continue, I will be here all day.
Now since your soul is hanging in this balance, how would you feel about getting after these words like you have an interest that is above everything else in this world. Please see the millions of words and videos and songs on our various web pages, all of which you can get to from www.GodHatesFags.com.
Thanks for writing.
Your friends at Westboro Baptist Church
