Westboro Baptist Hypocrites

Lately, I have been checking out the various Westboro Baptist Church websites just to see how sick these people can get. Today, on one of their blog pages, they refer to a news story about a woman being killed by a bus.
GodSmack: Bus Smack
52-year-old Palo Alto woman was hit and killed by transit bus as she crossed street downtown, Thursday (12/30/10).
WBC good-hearts were in Palo Alto in January of this year - you did not receive them. Your high school brats were in full-on rage, at the hands of the 50-something generation that raised them. Why did you people raise a whole generation of whores/fags and think God wasn’t watching?
That's right - these sick religious nutcases claim that because some teenagers interrupted one of the Phelps-followers' ignorant demonstrations, their depraved god took revenge a full 11 months later by arranging a bus accident for an innocent woman. Really makes sense doesn't it?
Earlier this month on their main site I noticed they were picketting several locations in Kansas - one of which was a First Assembly of God Church. And what was their excuse for demonstrating against their fellow Christians?
First Assembly of God in Mulvane, KS December 19, 2010 9:00 AM - 9:30 AMWBC will picket the false prophets and those who pay them to lie to them at the First Assembly of God where they are constantly reinventing what they are doing and how they are doing it. They think this is a popularity contest and it makes them vogue to change the truth of God into a lie. What part of NO WOMEN PREACHERS don't you understand?! Let the woman learn in silence with all subjection. But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence. (1 Tim. 2:11-12.) Christie needs to shut up and listen!....
Yes - they are picketting because this particular church has dared to actually use a female preacher. How evil is that?!*
But wait... Who is chief spokesman and public face for the Westboro Baptist since her father apparently went into seclusion? Shirley Phelps-Roper - the daughter of Fred Phelps. Who writes most of the material on the various WBC sites? Of course it is unsigned, but by style, it seems clear that most of it is written by Shirley Phelps-Roper. And who is the public face of the WBC in trying to address young people through Twitter and Facebook? None other than Shirley Phelps-Roper's daughter, Megan Phelps-Roper. Effectively, WBC is currently run on a day-to-day basis by women. Hypocrites! All of them.
I could pick away at items on the WBC site forever to expose them for the ignorant dishonest scum they are. But I'll limit myself to one other factoid that really had me laughing.
In the lower left of their main site, WBC has a section called Numbers. It's various statistics which they think are important. Here's one of them:
16,000,000,000 - people that God killed in the flood.
Yes - they think that there were 16 billion people living on Earth - a mere millennium after their god created two people, who together with their descendants apparently bred like rabbits. WBC members think that the Earth would support 16 billion with primitive agriculture. I've given some consideration to the origin of this number which no other Christian or Jewish authority comes close to as an estimate of deaths in the mythical great flood. 16 billion is a number that came straight out of Fred Phelp's anus - along with the rest of his theology.
To everyone who is not unfortunate enough to be a Westboro Baptist Church member - I wish you a Happy and Prosperous New Year. Remember, nobody's god is going to destroy the world in 2011, so enjoy every day of the year.
* The Apathetic Agnostic Church has proudly ordained women since 1996. As far as WBC is concerned, we are all going to hell anyway. And if they are right, we really wouldn't want to spend eternity in the company of them and their deranged god anyway.
