i have just seen the sickest thing on tv and i would like to share and hear your views.
has anyone here heard of the westboro baptist church? for those who havent look them uo in your search engine. they are so notorious theres bound to be something about them on the web.
what these people basically do is preach gods hatred towards the usa. they form pickets and protests at fallen soldiers funerals. they wave signs and banners saying god hates usa, god hates fags ( their word, not mine!) god hates fag enablers(!!)
what really made me sick was the brain washing of their children. they would take their kids to the pickets and protests and make them hold up these sick signs. the poor kids dont even know what the signs mean. on this programme an angry passerby threw a cup of coffee at these people and it hit one of the kids. they had signs saying that princess diana is burning in hell along with other notable people.
they live in a closed compound but refuse to call themselves a commune or a cult. their kids are picked on at school, are not allowed friends or girl/boyfreinds, forceds to attend chapel where the head of this church preaches hatred to pretty much anyone who isnt them.
i was wondering has anyone here had any run ins with this church? i know they travel all over america to picket the funerals of dead soldiers.
another thing that has been brought to my attention is something thats happening in kenya now. people being burned alive because a priest has told his congregation that they are witches. im completely amazed that this is happening today! are we in the 16th century still? i know its happening in nigeria too. a priest tells a family that their kids are witches and the parents torture and sometimes kill their own children because they cant afford to have the priest "exorcize" them
please let me know your thoughts. its things like this that strengthen my atheism
