Westboro Hate Cult Films Worst Videos Ever

August 4, 2010

Chris Tilling penned one of the greatest lines ever in describing this ignorant, inbred, uninformed group of hate-mongers, “Once upon a time in the dark depths of Hades, Beelzebub cleaned out his snot stained nostrils and flicked the contents on earth. Lo, Westboro ‘Baptist Church’ (WBC) was born.”

Their theology is horrible. Their signs are terrible. In fact, there is not a single redeeming thing about Phelps and his clan. It is rotten and bad from top to bottom.

And just when you thought it couldn’t get any worse they decided it would be a “good idea” to put their single digit IQ hate speech into music video parodies. I’m not sure where to even begin with these: the production is awful, the singing is heinous; I mean we could go after the videos for awhile: there really is a lot to tear apart… but why the Sheol is this group singing secular songs by people like Michael Jackson and Lady Gaga. Shouldn’t they be taboo in date-your-cousin church?

Prepare to lose IQ points:

Prayer: God, I’m pretty sure you read my blog more than the other biblioblogs, so I was wondering if I could offer you some advice. I know that you are the all wise creator of the universe so I bring it to you with the utmost humility. There are these people that call themselves a church and tell everyone how much you hate them and are going to burn them because of your hate. At the same time a lot of senseless tragedies happen around the world. People dying in earthquakes and accidents. Why don’t you combine the two? Go a little Old Testament, a little Yahweh of Armies, and the next time the Phelps clan are  all together in a bus traveling to picket somewhere have a meteorite blow it up, or the next time they are picketing a dead soldiers grave have the ground swallow them up. Even an atheist like Richard Dawkins might have to reconsider some of his positions if such an awesome, and clearly benevolent act for the rest of humanity, were to take place. That is all.

Your favorite,

    These posts (my favourite) make me upset when I read them and I want to ridicule my laptop screen. Everybody has an inexplicable gravitation to something maddeningly addictive , I guess some people watch Jersey Shore, some subscribe to RSS feeds from Scotteriology.

      LOL! I need to get an endorsement sidebar with that last sentence!

    I’ve got a soft spot for scott’s comments on a certain pastor in the NW as exegete but that last sentence can’t be beat as an endorsement.

    Here’s another winner:

      Well, that explains abortion.

    Complaints were what turned me to look upon WBC, and investigate a while ago.

    They were weak on the forgiveness theme, impatient on the sin thing, and essentially as noted, not very advanced in the Christian theology dept. But that only ranks them among the many thousands of Baptist, Presbyterian, and other conservative churches/pastors who still hold to a pre-20th cent. view of the world and Christianity.

    Doctrinally, there is little wrong with their teaching, as grating as it is upon liberal universalists and friendly freemasons.

    I sat through one of Phelps’ classic 20 minute sermons on Sodom, and couldn’t find anything wrong with it Biblically. I ended up making a copy and saving it. I have played it more than a few times, and played it for others, and no one can find doctrinal or theological fault with the basic argument.

    The Sodomites were sinful and wicked, and we are afraid to use those words today (overemphasizing Matthew’s warnings about ‘raca’). Lot’s sons in law really did roll over and go back to sleep, thinking that Lot was joking.

    Comedians, Stewart and Colbeire really are mockers of Christianity, and not in a self-depreciating humble way, but in a nasty dismissing way.

    In the end, I grew to like Phelps’ guts and no nonsense condemnation of modern homosexual culture. I wish he were more loving and generous, more advanced in some obvious fruit of the Spirit, but, like someone’s great grandfather, he commands respect for standing up for his 19th century version of Christianity, in which all further advancement appears to be apostacy.

    I thank him for reminding me of our roots, our all too recent past, and our all too little progress beyond the worst of the Reformation, Inquisition, witchhunts Galileo etc.

    I think the church needs Phelps (warts and all) as much as Phelps needs the church.

      The Law without the Gospel is still the Law without the Gospel.

      “Doctrinally, there is little wrong with their teaching.”

      Except for “God hates you,” which is, you know, pretty much the only thing they teach.

        If “God hates homosexuals” is doctrinally wrong, it should be easy to demonstrate this, using Biblical arguments.


        • August 5, 2010 5:22 am

          Can you please Biblically demonstrate that it’s right?

          First of all, WBC does not just say God hates homosexuals. They say God hates pretty much everyone. They do not limit the hatred of God to gay people.
          Second, how many passages could I quote? Paul says the greatest Christian virtue is love. John tells us God is love. In the Gospels, Jesus is surrounded by whores and tax collectors, and he’s always nice to them–he gives the business to his disciples and the Pharisees, but never (that I can think of) to the sinners. And there’s some verse from John 3 that gets held up at sporting events a lot that apparently talks about God’s love?
          The only Christians that don’t teach that God loves everyone are the 39 point Calvinists who teach that God loves only the elect. Other than that, for a couple thousand years, the consensus has been that God loves everyone.

      I’m not sure I could disagree with you more Nazaroo.

      • August 4, 2010 11:30 pm

        I appreciate your candor. You chose the topic, and I responded honestly. I am willing to engage in discussion of the topic, and learn something to boot.

        If you strongly disagree, perhaps some specifics would be in order.

        I won’t bite, or picket your army buddy’s funeral.

    see scott, i told you you needed to moderate comments.

    • August 4, 2010 9:17 pm

      And miss all of the free entertainment from dilettantes? Not likely! 😉

    • August 4, 2010 11:31 pm

      Why, was someone being uncivil or dishonest?

      Or did they just disagree with your personal position?

    Fred Phelps does music videos?

    Ooooo… Kayyyyyyy…

    Unicorn Guy: “Fred Phelps does music videos?”

    See now there’s the love we were waiting for.

    More tough love than in Michael Jackson’s “thriller” and “I’m Bad” combined…

    music: “wa wa wa wahahaha…”
