Westboro Baptist Church

I have been holding of on saying anything about the Westboro Baptist Curch, as I think anyone with any knowledge knows they are religious extremists. How they picket funerals is despicable, and their opinions on gays (and other groups they deem immoral) is cave man like.

Regardless of what you think about the Westboro baptist church however, there is one thing you need to be clear on. They are correct on their opinions about gays and other religions, when you consider what the bible says. If you read the bible you will see the following about gods opinion of gays. Leviticus 18:22 states “ Homosexual acts are an abomination to God.” while 20:13 says “ If a man has sex with another man, kill them both.”. Regarding other religions god has this to say. Exodus 20:3 "Thou shalt have no other gods before me." and Deuteronomy 8:19-20 "If thou do at all forget the LORD thy God, and walk after other gods ... ye shall surely perish."

This is scary! The Westboro baptist church is shockingly correct on their views even though these views amount to hate speech in this civilized age. So why should we tolerate religious groups? Remember, the only difference between extremists and believers is interpretation.

For another interesting person.
