THE DANGEROUS ZEALOTS



MODERN DAY ZEALOTS
WESTBORO BAPTIST CHURCH

Fred Waldron Phelps, Sr., recently passed away.  Thank God, I think the Lord and millions of normal loving people had enough of that perverted nutcase and his spewed and convoluted hatred.  

In my all honesty, I have to make jokes of this creep, dead or alive because if I stayed too serious about Westboro I would lose it and want to do something a lot more drastic against these followers.

No one denigrates our fallen soldiers period, not in our town, not now, not ever.  


FRED PHELPS SR:
He was an American pastor, (debatable) of the Westboro Baptist Church ( a debatable church)  claimed to be Independent Baptist based in Topeka, Kansas.  

Phelps was a disbarred lawyer, founder of the Phelps Chartered law firm, and a former civil rights activist, (thats a frickin joke) certified homophobic, ( probably into bestiality) and was delusional.  ( Good Lawyers and the Bar would not tolerate him)

His remains referred to:  As a pile of corrupted and unsanctified human waste, below sub-normal was forwarded to the Lords associate in these matters Mr. Mephistopheles who asked, “ And what am I supposed to do with this crap”.  
The Lord said do what you do with false prophets, “ Burn him"! 

Some think the word “ Scumbag”  was brought over from the British version of English, and wholly adapted to describe him and into perpetuity for him and other bad attorneys who misuse law and mitigate it into fake religious precepts.

Westboro claims Independent Baptist ( Primitive and Calvinist) because the numerous Normal Baptist Church Affiliations wanted nothing to do with them and they were then removed with the Baptist form of excommunication, what ever that is, a dirty letter, threats, nasty name calling and no Bunko or Bingo, Rummage or Cake sales ever. 


THATS WAS HIS GOOD SIDE
His scumbag side denigrated the funerals of our slain soldiers during their funerals.  His group actively went to our fallen heroes funerals to display their hateful rhetoric.  

President George W. Bush signed the Respect for America’s Fallen Heroes Act into law in May 2006, and, in April 2007, Kansas governor Kathleen Sebelius signed into law a bill establishing a 150-foot no-picketing buffer zone around funerals.  

I truly believe if they ever try that in Tampa again there will be bloodshed... 

Please do not send donations to this church, you may however send flowers to this Church such as Ragweed, Poison ivy, Poison Sumac and Venus Fly-traps, far more appropriate.  

If inclined since they are Very Primitive Baptist, commonly called Neanderthalic Baptisticles, sending Rattlesnakes, Cobras Tarantulas, Scorpions and a plague or two would be OK and appreciated.  

Phelps’s followers frequently picket various events, such as military funerals, gay pride gatherings, high-profile political gatherings, University Commencement ceremonies and performances of  The Laramie Project.  And they don’t like Episcopalians, for the life of me why?

I had to find out why they targeted another Christian secular group, usually when one Christian Sect goes after another its private jokes in small groups.   “ Something like did you hear the one about the Baptist couple who were dismissed from their church for having sex standing up”.  No, what happened?... "The pastor thought they were dancing....” 


THEIR HATE STATEMENTS ABOUT EPISCOPALIANS ( Their Words Of War)
WBC:  The Episcopal monster was brought into being for one reason, to wit: so King Henry VIII could commit serial adultery and be absolved of his murders.  He made up this new creature ( The Episcopal Church) and named himself the head of it. 

Therefore according to the WBC they have about as much truth and theology ( The study of Holy Scriptures) going on in that place as a crack den or a literal whore house.   As part of their criminal record, recall the imprisonment of John Bunyan and their continual pushing of other filth in their churches, amongst both their clergy AND their patrons.  From their own writings: on homosexuals in their “ Church” ... and have you even HEARD of Gene Robinson? 

First Openly Gay Episcopal Bishop Announces Divorce
Bishop Gene Robinson, seen here in 2010, has announced that he and his long-time partner will be getting a divorce.

Bishop Gene Robinson says he and his husband, Mark Andrew, are getting a divorce. The first openly gay Episcopal bishop, Robinson retired last year, a decade after his election alienated many conservative Anglicans.  The pair had been together for 25 years. Robinson disclosed the divorce this weekend, in an email to the Diocese of New Hampshire and in a column for The Daily Beast in which he wrote:

"My belief in marriage is undiminished by the reality of divorcing someone I have loved for a very long time, and will continue to love even as we separate. Love can endure, even if a marriage cannot. It will take a lot of work, a lot of grieving, and a large measure of hope to see it through. And that’s where my faith comes in."  "Life is hard," the retired bishop said, "and that is true whether you're in your teens or in your 'golden years.' "

Robinson and Andrew were joined in a civil union in 2008; that bond converted into a marriage in 2010, after New Hampshire legalized same-sex marriage.  "Robinson went public with his sexual identity and divorce from his wife in 1986. He has since been open about the heavy toll he has faced under public scrutiny. Four years ago, he underwent treatment for alcoholism.


THEY ARE THE RELIGIOUS FILTH IN THIS WORLD
They also picket and mainstream Christian gatherings, non-secular entertainers, musical groups and concerts with which they had no affiliation, arguing it is their sacred duty to warn others of God’s anger.  This is where religion goes too far.  Their webpage alone indicates who they are.  Their pickets will be at the following Episcopalian gatherings and their own propaganda meetings to disrupt the events or to promote their viewpoint.

The other assumptions and mis-information, all hatred  based, the church spews is indicated by the photo aimed at sick parents who impregnate their children with hatred.  


MORE PROPAGANDA - THEY CALL IT GOD-SMACK
God’s judgments are everywhere. Just because you attribute the things that happen in your lives to your mother nature doesn’t mean God doesn’t do them. 

God is in charge of everything, including your tornadoes, tsunamis, floods, famines, hurricanes, earthquakes, forest fires, mall shootings, IEDs, etc., etc. God will repay each of you to your face with your own personal GodSmack.

Phelps was known for the slogans that he and his ministry use against people he deems sinful; his church is built around a core of anti-homosexual theology, with many of their activities stemming from the slogan “ God hates fags”, which is also the name of the group's main website. 

Gay rights supporters have denounced him as a producer of anti-gay propaganda and violence-inspiring hate speech.  The church is considered by and monitored as a hate group by the Anti-Defamation League and Southern Poverty Law Center.

This shows how much restraint I have. Had they tried to pull this off in Florida, again, they did once for one of our fallen heroes,  I’m afraid I could not just stand by and watch,  I might have wound up in jail.  You do not desecrate our fallen.   

As a reporter at that event, a friend and off the record, reiterated half of the cops said they wish they could just turn their back, and “let nature meaning our friends take due course with these nutcases”

Fortunately our great motorcycle clubs, not gangs, friends and POW supporters blocked many of their attempts.  Had the police not been there to protect their Westboro’s First Amendment rights, there just might have been some blood spilled.  I hate saying it but that might be the only time it would have been a good thing. 

They are really some sick people at Westboro, not just the pastor and his family,  the entire congregation and followers.  It is systemic to this clan which again to me is like a disease and should be eradicated.  The first amendment sometimes goes off the rails protecting traitors and bigots.


WESTBORO BAPTIST PLANS TO PICKET 3 TAMPA CHURCHES SUNDAY

Others plan to counter Westboro’s demonstrations with a “Wall of Love.”
TAMPA – When word began spreading last weekend that Westboro Baptist Church was planning to picket three churches in Tampa on Sunday (March 19), members of the community began questioning on social media why the chosen congregations had been singled out by the group that the Southern Poverty Law Center calls “arguably the most obnoxious and rabid hate group in America.”  Turns out, it was just a simple matter of logistics.

It is the close proximity of the three churches: Sacred Heart Catholic Church, Hyde Park United Methodist Church (UMC) and First Baptist Church of Tampa that was the determining factor in selection for Westboro’s self-dubbed “God Hates Your Idols Preaching Tour.” 

Westboro member Margie Phelps, daughter of deceased founder Fred Phelps, whittled down a list of over 30 houses of worship before settling on the trio of churches that, she claims, “enable, coddle, encourage and teach sin.”  She mentioned some churches as having high divorce rates, being gay-inclusive and accepting of misbehavior on the part of clergy.

“You just have to be sensible. I just mapped out what was doable,” said Phelps in a phone interview earlier this week. “As for those three churches, the reality is we could have done a dozen, or two dozen, but we only have so much time on this Sunday morning. We’ve done other churches in Tampa, and Lord willing, we’ll do future churches in Tampa.”

Members of the group have “professional and personal activities” in the area this weekend and worked the planned picketing into their itinerary. “Whenever we travel anywhere, we’re going to avail ourselves of that opportunity to go to the streets and plead repentance, as we’ve done now for almost 27 years,” Phelps said.

Five or six church members will make the trip and they will be bringing an assortment of their familiar signs for use at the picket, including one that says “Your Pastor Is Lying,” that Phelps selected and will hold. The group plans to stand at a “respectable distance” from each church and sing hymns and parody songs that they have written over the years for roughly half an hour at each stop before walking to the next. Phelps said they have notified local law enforcement of their intentions.

Tampa Bay and central Florida have become a frequent stop for Westboro, with at least one member having roots in Temple Terrace. In 2012 police in riot gear formed a wall between the group and Occupy Tampa protesters near the Tampa Convention Center where the Republican National Convention was underway. 

More recently, as the city of Orlando mourned the victims of the Pulse Nightclub shooting, members of the anti-LGBT group “protested” at the funeral of one of the victims, Christopher Andrew Leinonen.  Counter-protesters wearing angel wings and singing Amazing Grace were successful in preventing funeral-goers from hearing or seeing them, however.

A similar tactic will be employed by LGBTQ - advocacy group Out and Loud Florida on Sunday. With help from supporters, they will form a “Wall of Love” near Hyde Park UMC at 8:30 a.m.  Co-founder Aaron Muñoz said that the wall will be the same as the one Out and Loud forms every Friday night in Ybor City, where they protect LGBTQ patrons from hate speech coming from a group that is a mirror image of Westboro in substance and tactics. 

Phelps said the Ybor group is not associated with Westboro in any way despite their similarities. Giacomo Liberato, a college student and co-founder of Students for a Democratic Society – St. Petersburg (SDS), the primary organizers of last November’s “Not My President” march in St. Petersburg, will be among the protesters present Sunday.

“I’m going to fight back against hate groups coming into our communities. I’m going to support my community members of every color, ethnicity, immigration status, sexual and gender identity, age, and faith, and I’m going because there are lots of wonderful people in the Bay Area that are prepared to build up a wall of love,”  Liberato said.

On Sunday, Westboro is scheduled to be at Sacred Heart Catholic from 8:20 a.m. to 8:55 a.m., Hyde Park UMC from 9 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. and First Baptist Church of Tampa from 10 a.m. to 10:40 a.m. As of Thursday night, Out and Loud Florida had more than 80 confirmations for their Wall of Love on their Facebook Event page, with three times that many noting that they are “interested” in attending.


WITH THE KILLINGS IN CHURCHES THIS PAST YEAR

If you are an evildoer wishing to bring harm to the members of River at Tampa Bay Church, don’t expect congregants to turn the other cheek.  They’ll blast you. So says a sign at the church, at 3738 River International Drive in Tampa, that delivers a stark warning to anyone thinking of wreaking havoc.  The sign at the 21-year-old church was put up about a year ago, said Associate Pastor Allen Hawes.

But it made a recent splash on social media when Senior Pastor Rodney Howard-Browne posted it on his Instagram account in the wake of the deadly church shooting in Sutherland Springs, Texas, that killed 26 and wounded another 20.

"It is a deterrent," said Hawes, 37, who has been at the church for the past 15 years. "Look at what is going on. In the past two months, look at what happened in Texas. Look at what happened in Las Vegas. Because we are a church that is on television, we are very involved in the community. We want people to know that this is a safe zone."

Hawes, who has a concealed weapons permit and favors the Springfield Armory 1911 handgun, a favorite among gun enthusiasts, said the congregation has many armed members who are prepared to use deadly force if necessary. Average attendance each Sunday is about 1,200 to 1,300.

"If you walk through the door with the intention to harm, that sign serves as a deterrent to you," said Hawes. "We are not a soft target. People here will defend their families."

Leaders and members of the non-denominational church, which has hosted concealed weapons permit classes, are also paying close attention to the string of four unsolved homicides in the southeast Seminole Heights neighborhood, said Hawes.

"I think just collectively, we pay very close attention," he said. "Look at Seminole Heights. Someone is murdering people. This stuff is happening all the time. Do you wait for another shooting to take precautions?"
