Westboro Baptist Church is at it again. They're the same people that picket funerals of former AIDS patients and Iraqi war soldiers. I really don't understand where these people come from and why they think it's alright to hate anyone. Even Jesus preached tolerance, he who is without sin cast the first stone right?! How many of these Westboro people are without sin?
Beyond that I understand that it is their lovely right in the United States to say and do what they please. Therefore I cannot be pissed and hate at them for this. It's the same right I enjoy thoroughly ... they tend to enjoy with with a little less class than the rest of us. I'm also going to go on a say that I am not a religious person anyone that knows me understands this. I believe in a higher power but not a god and definately not a god who would hate. I honestly believe that everyone should love and try their hardest to forgive and forget. I've fallen to the way side on this point just as any other.
Westboro baptists may stomp all over and spit on anything that I believe that I still must forgive them. As much as I believe they are the ultimate douchebags and have absolutely zero class and no morals at all to picket a place of mourning I must forgive them. I'd like to say they do not know what they do but I refuse to let them slide away with that excuse. I can only hope that they all eventually realize that hatred does nothing but lead to more hatred, prejudice, etc and nothing can be learned about anyone with that sort of mind frame.
I honestly hope that Westboro is bringing more people like me together. That the larger their group gets the larger our group gets. The more they hate the more we love. The more they push away the more we accept with open arms. For thats the only way to beat someone with hatred and bigotry as a weapon.
