|If the Westboro Baptist Church can voice their opinions, so can we.|
Another illogical thing the WBC does is to advertise and picket things that cannot be found in the bible at all. It is one thing to spread the word that the New Testament of the Bible says that homosexuality is a sin but it is another to claim that, “God hates your feelings”. It seems that as this group has grown they have drifted farther and farther away from the actual word of God. Stemming from that, many of the points that are so important to the Westboro Baptist Church are not even mentioned in the Bible at all. The messages the WBC delivers are look at that, "No reasonable reader could conclude their words contain provable facts but rather clearly opinion" (Constitutional 2). The idea that God is punishing the United States Military by killing more soldiers in war for having a country that is so tolerant of gays, is not found in the Bible. The bible actually states in Luke 6:35 "But love your enemies, do good to them, and lend to them without expecting to get anything back. Then your reward will be great, and you will be sons of the Most High, because he is kind to the ungrateful and wicked". This quotes explains the exact opposite than what the WBC does. If the Westboro Baptist Church claims gays are their enemies, they should do as God and give unconditional love and do good to them. Rather it seems the WBC follows ideas have been made and evolved by humans, not the bible.
