Despicable Kansas Church Fined

The pathetic excuse for a Kansas church that is Anti-Gay, Anti-Catholic, Anti-Troops, Anti-American, ect. has been fined $5,000 for seeking police protection for an upcoming Marine funeral that was killed in Iraq, so they could rant and rave to the loved ones of the fallen Marine on how "God hates America," "Thank God for 9/11" and "God blew up the troops."

Don't know about him?

Let me introduce you to this piece of garbage:

The Rev. Fred Phelps, founder of Westboro Baptist in Kansas, contends that American soldiers are being killed in Iraq as vengeance from God for protecting a country that harbors gays. The church, which is not affiliated with a larger denomination, is made up mostly of Phelps' children, grandchildren and in-laws.

The church members carried signs and shouted things such as 'God hates fags' and 'God hates you.'

"The same God that has the power to bless America has the power to curse America," he said. "The scriptures are very clear and very plain. God does not love everyone. He hates people."

Not to get all religous, but God doesn't hate people, He hates SIN. He does NOT hate people.

It is people like these idiots that make normal religous people have a bad name, because people have a tendency to lump groups, and with this tending to be a so-called "church", some will think religous people are all insane zealots like this group.

This group makes me sick to my stomach.

Hey dumbass, if God's word is everything to you, maybe you want to try reading the damn bible and check out this portion:

"John 3:16. God loves everyone."

It doesn't say God hates him, or you, or this other person.
He hates the SIN people do, same as the disgusting actions you take in His name.

I seem to have gotten off track here slightly, but now that you have gotten an idea of just what kind of insanity this LAWYER / "pastor" spews, let's continue with the most recent actions.....

MUNDY TOWNSHIP, Mich. An anti-gay Kansas church has been slapped with a five-thousand dollar bill for not showing up for a military funeral in Genesee County.

Mundy Township police say the group asked in advance for special police protection but never arrived for a July first memorial service for Marine Lance Corporal Brandon Webb.


A church member says the bill is a joke and will be ignored. She says the Holy Ghost told them at the last minute to stay home.


The church tells the Flint Journal it will not pay the bill.

The church told officials that they planned to demonstrate at a recent memorial service for Marine Lance Cpl. Brandon Webb, 20, of Swartz Creek. It was held at Swartz Funeral Home in Mundy Township, about 50 miles northwest of Detroit.

Officials said the church members asked for special police protection and broke an agreement for security service when they failed to arrive.

"They didn't even give me a courtesy call to say they weren't coming," township police Chief David Guigear told The Flint Journal.

Westboro church member and lawyer Shirley Phelps-Roper said group members bought airline tickets but said the Holy Ghost told them at the last minute to stay home.

Police "took an oath, and their duty is to keep the peace," Phelps-Roper said.

"If they do anything as foolish" as sending a bill, she said, "I'll laugh all the way to the trash can."

This group is beyond disgusting and contempt.
