So the documentary The Most Hated Family in America really got my blood boiling. It gives us an inside view of the Westboro Baptist Church. Based in Topeka, Kansas, its members are headed by Fred Phelps. The church bases goes around picketing soldiers funerals and its beliefs are expressed by its best known slogan,
“God hates fags”, and expresses the opinion, based on its Biblical interpretation, that nearly every tragedy in the worldis God’s punishment for homosexuality – specifically society’s increasing tolerance and acceptance of gay, lesbian, and bisexual people. It maintains that God hates homosexuals above all other kinds of “sinners” and that homosexuality should be a capital crime. I strongly disagree with their message but I’ll let you see for yourself.
