Top thirteen insults to Colorado and America by Westboro Baptist Church's late Fred Phelps
Number 4: "Westboro Baptist Church protest in Fort Collins to be met with silence," June 23, 2010
An excerpt from a Lambda Center release about a counter-protest: "While we recognize the desire for community members to confront this kind of blatant bigotry and hatred, we are asking that we not give voice to this group by providing them an audience while they are here. Rather we would encourage community members to take this opportunity to show support to those in Fort Collins targeted by their visit:" Andy Stoll, Executive Director, Lambda Community Center. Martin Luther King Jr. said that "darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that."Yep, a handful of church members turned up -- but they were far outnumbered by locals with a very different message, synopsized in our post "Westboro Baptist Church protest in Fort Collins countered by somersaults, Thai food." See a sample video below.
Number 3: "Corporal Larry D. Harris to be honored by Bill Ritter, dishonored by Westboro Baptist Church," July 13, 2010.
Corporal Larry Harris and his wife, Stacia.
GOD HATES AMERICA & IS KILLING OUR TROOPS IN HIS WRATH.After stirring up fear, the WBC stayed away.
Military funerals have become pagan orgies of idolatrous blasphemy, where they pray to the dunghill gods of Sodom & play taps to a fallen fool.
This message to be preached in respectful, lawful proximity to the memorial of Cpl. Larry D. Harris, Jr.
Wed., July 14, at 9:15 a.m.
Rising Star Missionary Baptist Church
1500 S. Dayton Street, Denver, CO
Cpl. Harris gave his life for the Constitutional right of WBC to warn America. To deny us our First Amendment rights is to declare to the world that Cpl. Harris died in vain, and that America is a nation of sodomite hypocrites.
Number 2: "Westboro Baptist Church vows to picket funeral of Kenny McKinley, Bronco who took own life," September 24, 2010.
Doomed American rebels will do ANYTHING other than worship and serve the God who inhabits eternity. One of their many idols is their football teams, which they lavishly pour time and money into, corrupting many. Now the people of Denver stand around sobbing. You're in the house of sorrow because you would not obey -- and foolishly think that money will buy happiness. Kenny McKinley did not benefit from your money; he wallowed in depression, casting aside the interests of his family, including his young son, because he was injured and couldn't play football. How broken is your compass?! WBC has been to Denver and Colorado many times, entreating you to obey God. Your response has been consistently angry and violent. Now, God's wrath abides on you. More and worse is coming, Colorado. GodSmack!This GodSmack! was not delivered in person.
Number 1: "Westboro Baptist Church: 1,000-plus show up for Durango protest, none from actual church," November 10, 2010.
WBC TO PICKET SCREENING OF "THE ANATOMY OF HATE," AT FORT LEWIS COLLEGE (1000 RIM DRIVE, DURANGO, CO), TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 9, FROM 4:45-5:30 PMBut the WBC didn't go to Durango. Had members done so, they would have seen hundreds upon hundreds of people who disagree with everything for which the "church" stands -- other than the importance of free speech and expression.
"Thou shalt not hate thy brother in thine heart: thou shalt in any wise rebuke thy neighbour, & not suffer sin upon him." Lev. 19:17
God Almighty told you what "hate" is: it's your refusal to rebuke proud sin! Keep pretending that preaching the righteous judgments of God against proud rebels is equivalent to violent crimes based on personal ill-will. That hollow lie is obvious on its face, however, and won't change God's verdict on the matter:
"Woe unto them that call evil good, & good evil." Isa. 5:20
YOU'RE GOING TO HELL.
