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.

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 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

Comparing Westboro Baptist "Church" members with Christians is like comparing fanatical gihadists with Muslims.
I can assure you that 99.9% of Kansans do not associate or agree with the Phelps cult.
They are a family of lawyers that relish the next big lawsuit if only to gather more attention on themselves and their fanatical cause.

Ok, I'm not saying I hate all religious people, but this is why I'm so disgusted with the majority of religions out there (and I'm only 18 years old). You'd think that they'd be about love, acceptance, and peace but no- religion is actually responsible for a lot of the conflicts throughout history. Why? Because they're so damn set on forcing their way of life on others that they don't care who they hurt. They think we non-religious people are the evil ones just because we don't cling to their repressive teachings about sex, family, and propriety- but they're the ones who go around spreading hatred and intolerance. No wonder why people are turning their backs on religion- I say good riddance to it if this is what their people see as right.

I'm not in L.A. or I would so act a fool over this out there!

We can only be responsible for our own behavior. Church is a place for worship and peace building and it all centers around the Higher
Power that each religion declare as their own. When a farce like Westboro represent themselves as a church,then they have given you the answer that is Needed to prove that they are a group of members who Need to be prayed for by true believers. AMEN!!!

They aren't Christians and they can't be outlawed. But we can counter protest and surround them, and make them uncomfortable.

The U.S. government should outlaw Westboro Baptist Church! Those lifeless attention-seeking scumbags are a disgrace to America.
