|The phelps are not xian or any thing other than phelps. Their god is the mentally disdurbed angry hate fixated head of the cult, fred.
This abusing folk at funerals seems to be a Kansas thing. We had operation rescue west show up at one of our chaplains funerals and angain at the funeral of a clinic volunteer. One of my close friends died a few years back she had been a volunteer and very out spoken about being pro choice. We literally had to form a line and physically block them from pushing their way into her service with her daughter crying and begging them to leave. Nothing like having to have the police called during a funeral service. One of their creepy people did get in and signed the guess book. Her daughter was so upset that even that got defiled by them.
The phelps love the attention and I think that if the press would simply ignore them they would be forced to find another tactic to get that attention. For such a small group of morons they are getting world class coverage to spread their hate.
|I know it doesn't actually say "homosexual" as that is a modern word, however it does refer to homosexuals in a very identifiable way as you have quoted.
I have explained many times before why I do NOT consider the quote from Romans to be proof of homosexuality being bad or evil or sick or a sin. Why? Because God MADE these people gay as a punishment. These are not natural homosexuals - and it is easy to interpret a straight person acting gay as unnatural - as unnatural as it is for a gay person to act straight.
You never struck me as a homophobe, MeBlonde...
