Why can they not let the dead rest in peace? Why must they picket funerals and write such filth-ridden missives in the name of God and say that God hates <Insert name here>?
If the Phelps bunch truly knew the God of my bible they would know that He does not hate anyone and if they supposedly say on the television that they will not pray to him for <whatever> then it's not their place to rise to indignation and 'protect' God. God does not need protection from anyone, He can take care of Himself. He spoke this world and everything in it into being and he doesn't need the hate-spewing Phelps bunch to defend Him in any way, shape or form.
Do they not even read their bible about what happens when people do things supposedly in the name of God and it isn't what He would do? That's called blasphemy and is punishable by death, if He so chooses, though I won't say that's what's going to happen to this bunch because they deserve the same right to repent as any other person on this earth.
Phelps bunch-listen-Jesus will one day come back for His children, if you really want to go with Him, then I suggest you repent of your evil doings before that happens or you'll see what happens once the influence of the Holy Spirit is taken from this world.
