I was all set to blog about the absurdity that is the new immigration bill, amnesty for those of you who care about the truth. Then I came across the latest from the evil Fred Phelps and his followers at the Westboro Baptist Church in Topeka Kansas. These are the people who hold the "God Hates Fags" signs and also picket military funerals. They are an evil and nutty group of people. I had the opportunity to have Freds daughter, Shirley, on my show a few years ago. She is also the lawyer for her father. It was an entertaining interview as I tried to explain to her that she could not be a follower of Christ and do the things they do.

Well the latest from this circus is that they are planning to go to Jerry Falwells funeral to picket and preach. This from their website;

"Falwell warmly praised Christ-rejecting Jews, pedophile-condoning Catholics, money-grubbing compromisers, practicing fags like Mel White, and backsliders like Billy Graham and Robert Schuler, etc.,"

Also at this website which is, they proclaim that Jerry Falwell is in Hell! The question that keeps coming to my mind is how in the world can they afford what they do? No one takes them serious. Any thinking person knows they are a joke, as evidenced by the whopping 70 people in their "church". The sad truth is they do somehow have the funds to continue to show up and give Christianity a bad name.

Having had the opportunity to speak directly with Shirley Phelps Roper, I can state confidently that they all would be much better off putting their picket signs down and take note of the ministry of Jerry Falwell. They might learn something, they might even come to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ, which all of them, from Fred on down, could use!

blog you later,
