They are the most hateful people I've seen in recent times. I've known several baptists who were good, honest, caring, God-fearing, decent human beings. These Westboro jackasses are earning a bad reputation for other folks who don't deserve it. I sometimes wonder if the leadership of that particular organization is actually secretly working to discredit the Baptist church as a whole. If that was their intention they couldn't be doing a better job of it than they already are.
The bible does not teach us to publicly condemn or insult people of specific classifications, even if it is against our primary views. The Westboro Baptist Church is only harvesting despise for throwing meaningless displeasure around.
i think its weird that, that "church" is condemning people with just the law and not the gospel AND saying that THEY are not sinful. And if you ever watched the video about them ou can see they never once mentioned christ.
Although they are doing it in a very harsh manner, they are just stating their strong opinions. Would I call them a hate group? Yes. Would I say that they are all horrible people for talking powerfully about what they believe in? No.
Absolutely They "claim" to be Christian but act as 5 year old demons would, all I've seen them do is provoke torment and praise the death of others. Why can't any of these tragic shootings ever happen in that place? It's a hate group, nothing more and nothing less, maybe more

Hey James, that pastor needs to hear a sermon on Romans 14:13 "Let us not therefore judge one another any more: but judge this rather, that no man put a stumbling block or an occasion to fall in his brother's way." Because that man claims to represent God and Christian-thinking, I'm afraid that he causes many to turn away. And he may be a believer, but I think that one fine day, he will have to answer for all this undoing that he's doing. You mentioned before that there's a group of bikers that shield funeral mourners from his kooky misdeeds, if you know any of them, ask them to put this verse in his face wherever he goes! :) bye friend!
Yes, not because they "take a stand on things". Because there is nothing wrong with voicing your oppinion, but it is the way they go about it. They don't love, they don't do or say things in love, and are known as mean people because of it. Jesus was all about love, so if you known as mean, or "hateful" you certainly can't be known as one of his.
