“God hates Fags” is the rallying cry of the nuts at the Westboro Baptist Church who gives Christians everywhere a bad name by going to funerals of our brave men and women who fought, bled, and died for our nation that the liberties for which she stands. This sickened me so much I finally decided to write a blog about it.
Everybody who’s read my blog knows what I have to say regarding marriage and the homosexual lifestyle. And I would hope that everybody who’s read my blog knows that I speak such truth with nothing but compassion (or I try to anyway though sometimes my snarkiness gets the better of me at times…..LOL). Meaning that while I firmly believe that there can be no moral or legal equivalent between homosexual and heterosexual couplings, I do NOT hate gay people, or any other people for that matter.
This is because of one basic difference: The “Christians” at WBC, drawing upon the sacred Scripture that all Christians make use of, have somehow come up with a God who hates. Whereas true Christians like myself and others, when examining the same Scriptures (and in the case of my Catholic Christian faith sacred Tradition), we come up with a God who hates sin, but is full of infinite love, mercy, and grace for sinners who choose to turn back to Him. Same information regarding God, yet the WBC tries to tell us that God hates? Incredible. They are Christians in Name Only if that is what they truly believe.
Every faith has its nutty zealots. I apologize to all sinners everywhere who have had the misfortune to come into contact with ours in the WBC when making first contact with Christendom. Truly I am, for I have said it once and I will say it again, when the truth needs to be spoken, it must be spoken with no malice towards the sinner, only the sin. If one attempts to speak the truth with malice towards the sinner then truth is corrupted and you will push those you are attempting to bring the light of Christ’s message to even further away from His Light.
