Westboro Baptist Church Losers Threaten Elizabeth Taylor Funeral Boycott

by at . Comments

The Westboro Baptist Church is at it again. These people need lives.

As it has in the past with Elizabeth Edwards, Heath Ledger, Natasha Richardson and countless fallen U.S. soldiers, the small Kansas church is directing its rhetoric at Hollywood in threatening to protest at Elizabeth Taylor's funeral.

Aren't church groups supposed to be compassionate? Just asking.

Liz Taylor

R.I.P. Elizabeth Taylor (1932-2011).

"No RIP Elizabeth Taylor who spent her life in adultery and enabling proud f**s. They cuss her in hell today. #Westboro will picket funeral!" tweeted Margie Phelps.

She's the daughter of Westboro Baptist Church pastor Fred Phelps, who has called for such protests, recently upheld by the Supreme Court (if not human decency).

Elizabeth Taylor passed away yesterday at 79 after being ill for some time. She was a tireless advocate for AIDS awareness and revered by the gay community.

Not surprisingly, that community is livid over Westboro's threats.

"Fred Phelps and his vitriolic anti-gay followers are trying to exploit their 'faith' by spreading messages of hate at a time when Americans are grieving the loss of an extraordinary woman, actress and advocate," GLAAD president Jarrett Barrios said.

"Overwhelmingly, communities of faith are starting to embrace lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender congregants and sending messages of equality for all."

"GLAAD is urging media to share Elizabeth Taylor's legacy with stories of hope and acceptance, and which highlight her life's work to create a world in which everyone is respected and valued for who they are."

That's a message we can all get behind, don't you think?

I just wanted to say that I'm a Christian and I don't agree with what this church is saying, they have no right to say that God hates gays, God loves everyone He just doesn't love our sin! Instead of bringing people to Christ these people are pushing people away from Jesus, making all Christians look as if we are homophobic and are full of hatred. They have no right to say that Elizabeth Taylor is in hell, because although the bible does say, "Unless someone is born again they shall not see the kingdom of Heaven" they don't know if E.T. called upon the name of God before she died!
Please don't think that Jesus and all Christians are like Westboro Church...
God Bless

This church in Kansas is a cult.

Poor Margie Phelps - just look at her - as ugly on the outside as she is on the inside. Elizabeth Taylor's inner and outer beauty - her generosity and her kindness - must have driven poor Margie wild.

I say people need to get together and boycott the church!!!!! There is no justified reasons behind thier actions. An I agree with a previous post. They seem to be more of a cult than a church.

They are not Christians. They are a cult. HUGE difference.

For all that Christians seem to abhor this cult, when is the last time a major figure in any Christian denomination denounced them? Maybe if decent Christians made it publicly clear that they have the courage of their convictions to denounce this decidedly unChristian behavior then people would not be so turned off from Christianity.

These people do not represent Christianity. Be certain of that. Jesus hates sin; but loves the sinner. We are to love; care for and be a model of his grace and compassion. WBC is not. I fear they have forgotten Jesus's words "let him without sin cast the first stone"

As a christian myself i have always and will denounce what the westboro a-holes do! Trust me, almost everybody in the christian church denounces them as well.they are a disgrace to not only us good honest loving christians but to humanity as well.they truly disgust me!!

I just hope that everyone knows that this 'church' has no affiliation to any baptist church,or any other Christian church for that matter. True Christianity is about love and kindness.who are we to say that someone else is going to hell? if homosexuality offends you,that's fine.don't associate with it they are a shame to all of us true Christians.God loves all Rest In Peace,Elizabeth Taylor
