God Hates America
Its Not Who You Think
There is a group in America that protest the funerals of the brave men and women who return from Iraq and Afghanistan in a casket. This group holds up signs in front of the grieving parents, children and spouses that claim to "Thank God for Dead Soldiers." This group believes that dead soldiers represent God's hatred of America.
One would think that this group would be made of liberals against the war but it is not. This movement is led by a radical and out there group of religious conservatives who truly believe that God hates America.
Find Out For Yourself
The movement is as simple minded as it is ridiculous. Led by the WestboroBaptist Church, the God hates America group believes the United States is on a path of destruction. They use quotes from the bible to prove their points. They claim that Abortion is murder and because the Supreme Court's decision in Roe v. Wade that God hates America. They claim that because there are homosexuals in the United States, God hates America. They claim that America has become a fornication nation and thus God hates America. They claim that because America allows for divorce and remarriage, God hates America.
And this "movement" claims that the American lifestyle that allows for Abortion, Divorce, fortification and homosexuality will lead to God's wrath. This group offers no answers to any of the problems facing the United States, but only salvation though hatred.
While this group claim they only teach the lessons of the bible and follow in Jesus' footsteps, they take a different path to teach what they believe is the truth. Instead of preaching love and peace, this group has targeted their anger towards likely and unlikely individuals. Their first target is President Obama who they claim is the anti-christ. They also attack other democrats like Al Gore. However, their hatred isn't only for liberals and they also hate many conservatives as well. The list includes, George W. Bush, who they call a dolt, Dick Cheney, and the entire Supreme Court, who mind you, were mostly appointed by conservatives. Their anger is also directed towards Matthew Shephard, the homosexual kid who was killed because of his sexual preference. They also hate Jake Gyllenhall and Heith Ledger, not because they were homosexuals, but because they played homosexuals in a movie. They even staged protests at Ledger's funerals.
This group also hates most religious leaders in the Country including Jerry Farwell and Billy Graham because their stance on homosexuality was too lenient. This, of course, leads one to wonder, who does these people actually like?
This is America, and this movement has every right to peacefully protest and spread their "message" in any outlet they deem fit as long as they follow the rules and do not physically disturb others. We all can agree on that.
But this group has taken their movement to an odd and disturbing place. They do not protest in the front of the White House, Congress or staying on the Internet. Instead, these people protest at soldier's funerals. That rights, the very soldiers who are fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan, are being protesting upon their return to America in a casket. So not only does the family have to deal with grief at the loss of a loved one, they have to deal with groups of people at the funeral holding up signs saying thank god for dead soldiers.
And why you may ask? Because this group believes that every soldier's death is caused by the wrath of God for the wretched ways of American life. So every time a soldier dies, this group celebrates because it is a sign that God is on the job.
Are You Kidding Me?
There are sincere and genuine arguments for and against the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and have been for years. But for the most part, liberals, conservatives and everyone else could always agree that we must support the troops. The troops don't decide where to fight, they go where they are sent and despite the odds do their jobs bravely and professionally.
Now this group has taken upon themselves to make sure that even a soldier's funeral is no longer sacred. They have taken upon themselves to ensure that the family cannot grieve in peace. They make the funeral about their so called cause and not about what it should be about, the fallen soldier. And they do this in the name of their religion.
Do these people really believe that their behavior would be condoned by Jesus Christ? They may not like what is going on in America, but does that give them the right to behave in such an unchristian manner.
What amazes me most is that this groups teachings are oddly similar to another group that claims their God hates America as well. Much of what this group preaches are what is "preached" by Osama Bin Laden on his tapes. Why hasn't fox news come out and called them terrorists?
