Westboro Baptist Church to Picket Funeral of Arizona Shooting Victims

by at . Comments

Incredibly, and depressingly, it's possible that Jared Lee Loughner is not the most twisted individual associated with the deaths of six people in Arizona over the weekend.

Members of the Westboro Baptist Church - an organization that has protested Adam Lambert and Justin Bieber in the past, while picketing Elizbaeth Edwards' funeral last month - plan to cause a scene at the funerals of those killed in Loughner's January 8 shooting spree.

As evidenced by their sign below, these creatons believe the deaths are punishment from God because the nation has taken action against the church. It's truly despicable stuff.

Westboro Baptist Church Message

* UPDATE:Arizona legislators have approved legislation that makes it illegal to protest at or near funeral sites.

These guys are clueless. They make Satan look like Little Miss Sunshine with the BS they spout. I feel for the families who have lost their loved ones and they are in my prayers. Especially the families of those who were injured, get better soon Congresswoman.

just trying to figure out what bible these guys are reading. proverbs 3:31 says Do not envy a man of violence and do not choose any of his ways. Oh yeah and then there is James 1:20-For the wrath of man worketh not the righteousness of God. Oh well, gotta learn to read the Bible for yourself, or these fakers will get you.

WBC is not a Christian organization. They are a cult. They claim to be Christians but do not know the true meaning of Christianity. Nothing but a bunch of whack jobs who follow a heretic.

As others have said,this group is just as crazy as he shooter. I haven't heard one person agree with their phoney protest. There isnt any reason why a law can't be made in this country to make protesting at funerals illegal. And rush it through! None of the funerals they protest have anything to do with them. We are hearing people should have stepped in to help prevent these shootings. Well take notice now of these few crazy people we allow to harass and cause pain to innocent people already suffering from losing a loved one. There will be violence one of these days while their idiotic protest are going on. So come let's end their protesting at funerals for no sane reason!!!!!!!!

The poster that was made goes against Wat is said in the bible.... as people of Christ they're supposed to pray for the sinners not condem them as they did... that's a sin within itself...ok I understand he killed people but all that coming from a church is stupid.

The people of this church have lost their minds, if they ever had one to begin with. They are truly some frightening people and should be watched closely at all times. Anyone who takes this crap that's spewed seriously is also very delusional and needs to read the bible again. This is definitely not what God had in mind and I have no doubt he is quite saddened by this so called "church" and their misrepresentation of the bible and christianity. They remind me of the Nazis who thought that if you didn't believe exactly what they did, you were condemned. They don't care what anyone says or feels, just what their diluted minds can conjoure up and I for one don't think I'll be seeing any of them when I die and go to heaven.

This Westboro "church" is the church of Satan, and Phelps the leader, is under direct influence of Lucifer. The real Jesus Christ (of whom Phelps stands in direct opposition) told us that we will be known as Jesus' disciples by our love. The Westboro church has yet to show one loving act -- it is all about hate, and that is Satan's rant. Yes, as Christians, we are to take a stand for morality, but ask yourself -- who did Jesus take a whip to? It was the hypocritical religious leaders -- in contrast, Jesus told to woman caught in adultery to "go and sin no more." The is a correct, dignified, and loving way to confront sin in society -- and it begins with confronting sin in our own lives before we throw stones at others.

As a real Christian and a normal sane person my heart goes out to the victims. And I try not to pass judgment but there r several reserved spots in he'll for the members of that maniacal group of lunatics from this "church" everything they r about is an afront to the lord and the words of God laid out specifically in the bible that real babtists read. These people belong in the same mental institution as the shooter until they die and burn for eternity. The will of my God is never going to be the senseless killing of innocent people and especially a nine year old child.

WBC gives baptist churches everywhere a bad name. I am personally an Independent Baptist, and DO NOT believe anything these ignorant self centered people do or say is praised by God. They need to be stopped!
