ACLU and Fred Phelps. A special reservation in hell.

It’s late, I’m headed to bed, but thought I’d drop this here for you to consider before I go.

ACLU Sues for Anti-Gay Group That Pickets at Troops’ Burials

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — A Kansas church group that protests at military funerals nationwide filed suit in federal court, saying a Missouri law banning such picketing infringes on religious freedom and free speech.

The American Civil Liberties Union filed the lawsuit Friday in the U.S. District Court in Jefferson City, Mo., on behalf of the fundamentalist Westboro Baptist Church, which has outraged mourning communities by picketing service members’ funerals with signs condemning homosexuality.

In case you don’t know who Fred Phelps is… he’s the christian fundamentalist who sends these people to military funerals:

Fred 1

Fred 2

Fred 3

I’m not a supporter of gay rights, but this behavior is disgusting.

One Comment

  1. I met some of Phelps group at Billy Graham’s last metting in L.A.

    – These folks have thrown God’s grace out the window and refuse to consider that God’s grace, mercy & forgivness is freely available to anyone who asks for it.

    I guess they figure a: They are without sin. or b: Membership in their group makes them special and above the rules God puts on the rest of us motals.

    They sure were a miserable bunch without the Joy of the Lord… (Philippians 4:4)

    P.S. I agree re: “this behavior is disgusting”
