Westboro Baptist Church: "Australians are sodomites"

Postby masher » Wed Feb 18, 2009 11:20 am UTC

http://www.news.com.au/story/0,27574,25067362-2,00.html

THE religious group that condemned Heath Ledger to hell for his role in Brokeback Mountain, is back – this time attacking the victims of the Victoria fires.

The Westboro Baptist Church – founded by Reverend Fred Phelps in Topeka, Kansas - claims that sinning Australians are the cause of the bushfires that raged across Victoria, and plan to picket the national day of mourning on February 22.

In a statement, the group says “God hates Australia” and “thank God for the fiery deaths of hundreds”.

“The guilty Australians will not repent of their national sins of the flesh … even after God killed hundreds in the fires and cast them into hotter fire and brimstone in hell,” it says.

The controversial church - whose core belief is that God will punish those who support homosexuality - has previously had its sights on Australia, slamming The Dark Knight star Heath Ledger for his role as a gay cowboy in Brokeback Mountain and protested at the late actors memorial services in the US.

The group said in 2007: “WBC will picket this pervert’s funeral, in religious protest.”

“God hates the sordid, tacky bucket of slime seasoned with vomit known as Brokeback Mountain – and He hates all persons having anything to whatsoever to do with it.

“Heath Ledger is now in Hell, and has begun serving his eternal sentence there.”

The fundamentalist US church is notorious for picketing the funerals of dead soldiers, brandishing signs that say “America is doomed” and “thank God for dead soldiers”.

The group is also planning another anti-homosexual protest in Britain later this week.

Westboro Baptist Church: "Arm-chairs are evil." "Jelly-beans are of Satan." "Kitty-cats take it up the ass on a semi-regular, fully-sinful basis."

I think they simply have a kind of collective social Tourette's. Any time the normal human reaction is "wow, that's sad" they reflexively say profoundly horrible things. It's like laughing at a funeral. Clearly they should be pitied. And medicated. Forcefully.

Please just quiet down about that lot. I don't think that anyone here wants to hear more about them; rather, we come to the thread to see more of the same for the kind of sick fascination that makes people stop at car accident scenes, knowing that the time spent isn't going to be worth it.

That, and the 30-70 persons have - approximately - more Internet visibility than the Orthodox Church. That can't be good for one's perceptions.

I've been living in Australia since last April, and I can honestly say I have not gotten in on the sexy action as yet. "National sins of the flesh" outrages me. I pay my taxes, and I want my goddamned federally mandated ass to pound! If there is to be National Sodomy for some, there must be National Sodomy for all!

Maybe the WBC is actually a large group of atheists, and they're doing all this stupid shit just to point out how futile religion is.

That, or maybe they should die some fiery deaths themselves? They don't hold still without media in one place long enough for me to drive there to do it :\

No, I think they're just idiots. I, for one, would find it humorous if they were wiped out by one of the natural disasters they consider to be God's wrath.

As great as that (fiery death to the WBC people) would be, they'd probably just say "God's punishing us for not working hard enough to spread his word" then re-double their douchebaggery.

Great analysis. Probably goes beyond even Tourettes, though - they still haven't lost that desire that elementary schoolers have to smash things for attention. Evangelicals try to ward off doubt and sadness by clapping and singing (as a Christian with at least a minimal interest in a consistent theology I have my beefs). WBC, on the other hand, thinks that if they hate loud enough they'll be the yelling-est, chosen-est people of God. What depresses me is seeing children at their picket lines.

“God hates the sordid, tacky bucket of slime seasoned with vomit known as Brokeback Mountain – and He hates all persons having anything to whatsoever to do with it.


Forgive me if I'm wrong here, but haven't they just condemned themselves to Hell? Heres my logic. Through picketing Heath's funeral and Brokeback in general, they have associated themselves with it. Therefore, by their own logic, they are going to Hell.

As for the topic at hand...yeah, these are some sad people. I almost feel bad for them, but then I watch video clips of them and I feel much better.

As much as I hate the Westboro Baptist 'Church', we have to sort of acknowledge their right of free speech. We as the 'true' citizens of this country (USA) have to be the ones who go on the high road; gritting our teeth in anger and righteous fury, and show them the other cheek, as the Bible says, I think.

Well, until they fuck up and piss someone off...

There are so many things wrong with this, I'm just going to post a paragraph of rhetorical questions.

Wait, did we pass a gay-marriage act while I wasn't looking? Also, how do they plan to picket a national day of mourning? Wasn't Heath from Western Australia anyway? Don't bushfires happen every year and the damage of these mostly due to poor management? Shouldn't the floods (with child snatching crocs) also be the wrath of God?

Actually turning the other cheek is something of an insult. To quoth Wikipedia:
Wikipedia wrote:At the time of Jesus, striking someone deemed to be of a lower class with the back of the hand was used to assert authority and dominance. If the persecuted person "turned the other cheek," the discipliner was faced with a dilemma. The left hand was used for unclean purposes, so a back-hand strike on the opposite cheek would not be performed. The other alternative would be a slap with the open hand as a challenge or to punch the person, but this was seen as a statement of equality. Thus, by turning the other cheek the persecuted was in effect demanding equality.

They're trolls. They fund all their events with money from lawsuits they win when people attack them for "expressing their constitutional right to free speech". The old guy is a lawyer, I think. They know their rights down to chapter and verse, and they use that knowledge to piss off as many people as they can. They *want* to be physically attacked so they can sue.

Parasites of the worst kind. I would have more respect for them if they actually believed what they preached.

I did a quick search - it's been (somewhat) done.

Also, it's amusing that being a "visitor to Vegemite Valley" is a euphemism for ... something surprisingly relevant. (I think it's a Les Pattersonism.)

Some news channel needs to bring on a bunch of "experts" to debate whether or not these people should be listened to. They can start out by having the side against listening to them giving a long, passionate, well thought out presentation on why we should never listen to these fucktards again.

The group in favor of giving them media time can then say the following: "Fuck it. We tried to come up with some reason that we should care about these people's opinions, but I can't think of any. We spent days trying to find some explanation of why they should be listened to, and found jack shit. I propose that we never talk to these fuckers again."

Then we can never talk to those fuckers again.

The problem isn't that we can't react violently against them, it's that the people who do so keep getting CAUGHT at it....
Dear xkcd,

On behalf of my religion, I'm sorry so many of us do dumb shit. Please forgive us.

Love, Aikanaro.

Fellow Australians: Okay, seriously, are you sodomites? Because if you've been holding out on me, we're missing out.

I expect some major sodomy to occur at the meetup on Sunday...
