But I digress, since that is not the purpose of this post.
Most folks I know have probably heard of the hate brigade know as Westboro Baptist Church. They've become quite famous for picketing the funerals of soldiers killed in the line of duty with signs reading things like "Thank God for IEDs" and "America is Doomed", viewing their deaths as divine retribution on a cursed nation.
Well, the group is now spreading their sunshine... to my city.
The group plans to picket several local sites in the Hampton Roads area, including Landstown High School (I'm sure the students going to class will LOVE seeing that in the morning) and the Virginia Beach Convention Center. They also plan to picket a local Chesapeake marine's funeral all the way to Arlington National Cemetary.
They had this to say about the man on their website.
“The flag is a piece of cloth; it can not save your souls from the fires of HELL! You had better listen to us, or you will join Kielin T. Dunn in the Lake of Fire! He ignorantly sinned away his day of Grace and brought WRATH down on his head! You all put Antichrist Beast Obama in the White House, and there is NO HOPE! America is Doomed! Amen.”
As the title says, this blogger is furious.
How dare they even show their faces here. How dare they harass those mourning the loss of their beloved marine with their evil messages. How dare they disturb this city with their hate.
Please pray for these hateful souls. Only God can lift the veil of hate that surrounds their hearts.
