Not Like Christians I Know

Via Urban Infidel....Westboro Baptist Church of Topeka, Kansas, has stated their plans to demonstrate at the funerals of the Virginia Tech students who perished at the hands of a murderer on Monday, April 16, 2007:
WBC will preach at the funerals of the Virginia Tech students killed on campus during a shooting rampage April 16, 2007. You describe this as monumental horror, but you know nothing of horror -- yet. Your bloody tyrant Bush says he is 'horrified' by it all. You know nothing of horror -- yet. Your true horror is coming. 'They shall also gird themselves with sackloth, and horror shall cover them; and shame shall be upon all faces, and baldness upon all their heads' (Eze. 7:18).

Why did this happen, you ask? It's simple. Your military chose to shoot at the servants of God today, and all they got for their effort was terror. Then, the LORD your God sent a crazed madman to shoot at your children. Was God asleep while this took place? Was He on vacation? Of course not. He willed this to happen to punish you for assailing His servants.
Like Urban Infidel, I refuse to link to the church's web site.

Westboro is the same group of hate-mongers who claimed that the slaughter of the Amish schoolchildren was God's punishment for that community. The organization — I'm having trouble referring to it as a "church" — eventually decided not to demonstrate at the funerals of the Amish schoolgirls but, as far as I'm concerned, showed their true colors by even sugggesting such an atrocity.

Funerals are for the living. For the bereaved and for those offering heartfelt tributes. Mourners do not deserve the kind of abuse which Westboro dishes out in the name of God and in their perverted view of freedom of speech.

I publicly disavow any connection with this so-called Christian group.

Remember the victims and the bereaved in an appropriate way (graphic lifted from Raven's site):

I can't say it better than Raven did in "Those Who Lost The Most":
While the MSM and many others are focusing on the killer, let’s get to know the victims. For it is they who have lost the most- their lives. A life lost means nothing if it is not remembered.
