I ran across this artice today
I was blown away to see this amazing and heroic group of bikers step up to the plate to protect the famlies of fallen soldiers, but also sickened by what was demanding their protection. It seems Westboro Baptist Church and it’s members have determined that God is using IED’s in Iraq to kill soldiers “because they fought for a country that embraces homosexuals.” Members of this church feel that God wants them to protest at the funerals of fallen soldiers in an attempt to force America to turn it’s ways in it’s acceptance of homosexuality.
One of there members of Westboro Baptist Chruch is quoted in the article as saying, “The scriptures are crystal clear that when God sets out to punish a nation, it is with the sword. An IED is just a broken-up sword.”
As a follower of Jesus, I am saddened and sickened by this utter and total misrepresentation of the God of the Bible. And I am sorry for those familes who have lost a child, a borther, a husband, a father, only to be treated with insensitivity and disrespect by some who claim to do it in the name of God.
