Westboro 'Church' is at it again..........Jobs' funeral will be protested?

What does one do with people like THIS?  Surprising, isn't it, that they don't have the word CHRISTIAN in this article..and a relief.   There's nothing CHRISTIAN about this:

The Westboro Baptist Church took to an iPhone when they heard about Steve Jobs’ death Wednesday night, sending out a message saying the Apple founder would be going to hell and calling for a protest of his funeral.
“Westboro will picket his funeral. He had a huge platform; gave God no glory and taught sin,” wrote Margie Phelps, daughter of the church’s founder.
The controversial group often pickets outside of soldiers’ funerals to draw media attention to their cause, which includes anti-gay material. Phelps tweeted the messages from her account, with an automatic note appearing at the bottom of the Tweet saying “via Twitter for iPhone.”
“No peace for man who served self, not God,” she wrote with the hashtag, #hellgreetedhim. “Westboro must picket.”
Thursday morning, Phelps responded to widespread criticism of her using the iPhone to Tweet the messages, saying that the phone was created by God–not Jobs–for that purpose.
“Rebels mad cuz I used iPhone to tell you Steve Jobs is in hell.God created iPhone for that purpose! ” she wrote.
WOW...where's the love?  Where's the sadness for Jobs' death?  Look closely at the logo above; there is no end to creativity, I think Steve Jobs would have appreciated that..........good, isn't it.  He sure took a 'bite' out of the apple.

I'm guessing they won't be joining the Teabaggers on Wall Street.

How do they get money, and who would be dumb enough to give it to them?

How do they get money...

"Hit me and I'll sue."

Silverfiddle said...

What a despicable freakshow those Phelps people are. They turn off more people than they would ever attract to the cause of Christ.

Chuck said...

They are just as hateful as anyone else on the left.

Best bet for them is to ignore them.

Z said...

I agree with you all. Except Beamish, of course.

"hit me and I'll sue" is probably right.

they are a freak show and should be ignored, but the media ADORES the CHRISTIAN nut types...no matter that the Wall St protesters and others on the left are nuts; they get a pass

Leticia said...

Bob, most of them, if you can believe this, are lawyers. They have the money.

I truly detest the fact that they use "God" to spread their hate. And their despicable behavior only confirms what many liberals believe, that we are a hateful bunch of people.

I wonder, how they would feel if one of their loved ones passed on and several people protested at the graveside and yelled obscenities?

They are merciless and cruel to target funerals where people are emotionally broken and in pain dealing with the loss of a loved one.

I wish I could say I was shocked at their behavior. But nobody is.

Always On Watch said...

Oh, for pity's sake!

I challenge the WBC on theological grounds! Nobody knows what the state of Jobs's soul is. The Lord can reach anyone He wants.

Oh, and more thing....The WBC is just a bunch of attention whores.

Pris said...

These Westboro people are nothing more than a cult, disguising themselves as Christians.

They can call themselves anything they want, but it's obvious they live in their own world of hate, which is as removed from God, as they can get.

The best that could be done to rid their victims of them would be to ignore them and keep them off the news, entirely. Of course in this case, for the lefty media, it's a must to depict all Christians as haters and loons.

cube said...

The WBC is a despicable group. Best thing that could happen is that everyone ignored them and their evil ways.

Maybe a chain of well-intentioned citizens could position their cars and/or motorcycles into a barrier so that the Jobs family could have a funeral for their loved one without the hassle of a hateful bunch of goons.

beamish said...

I agree with you all. Except Beamish, of course.

I hope someone makes it a point to quiz Ron Paul in the next debate about the presence of his troofer goons in the #OccupyWallStreet crowds.

Ticker said...

Pris, an incestuous cult at that.

Impertinent said...

"an incestuous cult at that."

This guarantees that they'll continue to raise bloomin' idiots.

Brooke said...

If those evil SOBs are Baptist then I'm the Pope.

Really, they are sickening. Nothing is too low.

BB-Idaho said...

Strange family. They hate everything and everyone and frame it as "God hates..homos, Jews, Catholics, Muslims..." fill in the blank. Ol daffy Fred also claims
God hates Obama Church memborship is
confined to the family....who should be confined, IMO!

Z said...

So, all the Christians here agree that this group is NUTS, thanks, everybody; no surprise that you do.

BBIdaho..what the HECK kind of blog is THAT? THAT is disgusting.

Net...I'm STILL shocked, though they have done so much of this hateful stuff.

Trestin said...

How I wish these people would just go away. I wonder how many Marxist plants keep this thing going? Speaking of that, has anyone looked into their funding?

BB-Idaho said...

RE: BBIdaho..what the HECK kind of blog is THAT? THAT is disgusting.
..that is the Wesboro bunch's blog.
Kind of odd, one of my daughters is
a professor in Topeka, had some of
the Phelps grandkids..bright, good
students, motivated...just a bad root in the family tree? ..some
have renounced the old psycho and left....

Speedy G said...

Insulting people is a major portion of the Westboro Baptist Church "business model"... They make it a point to do many things that are "insensitive", yet Constitutionally permitted, so that other people get REALLY mad and sue them to stop (or deny them a legal permit to exercise their Constitutional rights)... the church is a law firm... THAT is how they make their MONEY!

Speedy G said...

You sue them, but since what they do is Constitutional (but offensive), they WIN and collect COURT COSTS & LEGAL FEES. It is a RACKET! A LEGAL racket.

Speedy G said...

They do it to MAKE MONEY $$$$$$ They aren't stupid... just manipulative, LIKE THE LEFT who form NGO's and sue/extort oil companies "on behalf of indigenous fishermen". Like Jesse Jackson who extorts money from busines' so that he doesn't sue them for discrimination... or make bad publicity for them. It is an EXTORTION RACKET.

Speedy G said...

If Apple were to put them on a legal retainer, they wouldn't protest Steve Jobs funeral. It is THAT simple.

The "G_d Hates Fags" funeral protests are done to WARN the extortee's what they're up against. They have legal offices ALL over the country.

Thersites said...

...just as Ted Turner's IPCC is a HAMMER used to extort money from Energy Corporations.

Thersites said...

...invest in ME and MY political causes OR I'll SHUT YOU DOWN with EPA or Endangered Species Act regulations.

Whos's going to tell the world about my protection racket, the MSM???

Bwah-ha-ha-ha-ha. I (the Left) OWN THEM.

Thersites said...

btw - TAX the RICH. Pay me or I'll get OBAMA to take your money in the name of CLASS WARFARE.

Plato, "Republic"

But think again: In his wealthy days, while he was spending his money, was a man of this sort a whit more good to the State for the purposes of citizenship? Or did he only seem to be a member of the ruling body, although in truth he was neither ruler nor subject, but just a spendthrift?

As you say, he seemed to be a ruler, but was only a spendthrift.

May we not say that this is the drone in the house who is like the drone in the honeycomb, and that the one is the plague of the city as the other is of the hive?

Just so, Socrates.

And God has made the flying drones, Adeimantus, all without stings, whereas of the walking drones he has made some without stings but others have dreadful stings; of the stingless class are those who in their old age end as paupers; of the stingers come all the criminal class, as they are termed.

Most true, he said.

Clearly then, whenever you see paupers in a State, somewhere in that neighborhood there are hidden away thieves, and cut-purses and robbers of temples, and all sorts of malefactors.

Clearly.

Well, I said, and in oligarchical States do you not find paupers?

Yes, he said; nearly everybody is a pauper who is not a ruler.

And may we be so bold as to affirm that there are also many criminals to be found in them, rogues who have stings, and whom the authorities are careful to restrain by force?

Certainly, we may be so bold.

The existence of such persons is to be attributed to want of education, ill-training, and an evil constitution of the State?

True.

Such, then, is the form and such are the evils of oligarchy; and there may be many other evils.

Very likely.

Then oligarchy, or the form of government in which the rulers are elected for their wealth, may now be dismissed.

Bd said...

There are your peeps, wingnuts.

Speedy G said...

Using your despicable tactics, Leftard.

Z said...

Bd...."our peeps"? Can you show us what's 'wingish' (by the way, you're about the biggest WINGNUT I've EVER known) or Christian about this?
Do tell. I'm eager to respond.

MK said...

No bd, they're your bitches, retard.
