God Hates America

Updated on April 22, 2017
God Hates America
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.

The movement believes that the American lifestyle will lead to hell.
The movement believes that the American lifestyle will lead to hell.

The Movement

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.

This Group Believes That God Hates America Because Of America's Tolerant Culture

Targeted Anger

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?

Misdirected Anger

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.

At The Very Least Could You Let The Families of Fallen Soldiers Grieve In Peace?
At The Very Least Could You Let The Families of Fallen Soldiers Grieve In Peace?
To This Group I Say: Are You Kidding Me?
To This Group I Say: Are You Kidding Me?

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?

      What can we do to appease our wrathful god? Should we make burnt offerings on an alter like Noah did in Genesis 8:20-21? That seemed to work.

      I agree with them to a point, I think God does hate this nation and is getting ready to hit us with his punishment (Wrath) just like Sodom and Gomorrah, but I don't agree with them that God hates Israel God has an everlasting covenant with that nation and the Jews but not America so what is to stop him from sending his righteous punishment our way, the bloated, arrogant, narcissistic, egotistical flag waving attitudes of Americans? Let's see, the stock market slam of 2008, 9/11, and now an everlasting bloodbath in Iraq that will eventually bring most of Americas sons and daughters home in a pine box. There is nothing positive about that. And the sad part is you cannot change the brainwashed minds patriotic armchair warriors who think like the captain of the Titanic, "That God himself Cannot sink this ship". well it looks as though one bulkhead has been breached and America is slowly taking on water. Hope you got your life preservers ready...

      The Westboro Baptist Church is the only church in America who preaches the real truth about God. Every other church just gives you a watered-down version telling you what you want to hear. They tell you what you NEED to hear, and that's why they get such a bad rap. If I had the money to move to Kansas, I would join them in a heartbeat.

      GOD LOVES EVERYBODY!!! He is definitely disappointed with the sins committed in America, especially with people like these. But God IS watching over everybody, and here's a verse that may even clear things up from this: Ecclesiastes 7:1 -and the day of death better than the day of birth.

      If somebody dies, it doesn't mean that God did wrong to bring that upon them; to the wise man, death is a beautiful thing.

      God Bless.

      Thomas, as much as it pains me to say, yes, this group should be represented. However, that does not mean they get a member of Congress or something. It means they have the right to free speech, assembly, etc, as much as anyone else. If you love America, you have to defend their right to say things.

      But you don't have to defend what they say or what they stand for. I have just as much of a right to go on my little blog here and scream for the rooftops that these people are crazy. And I have. And I will continue to do so. On this Memorial Day, I remember those who sacrificed to ensure that I have that right. And I thank them.

      Seeing as this group despise democrats and republicans alike, it appears they are not politically represented by anyone. So you have to ask, should they be represented? A perfect democracy would represent everyone, but the views these people espouse are seen by most as abominable. It's the same for fascists and communists, should they be represented? I really don't know, what do you all think?

      As a psychologist, this God Hates America group appears to have no sense of emotion for the distress they cause others. In the literature, this is suggestive of psychopathy. However, I'm sure they are capable of emotion, so what this indicates is a very entrenched group mentality, or a cult. To see children brought up this way is heart-breaking. Those kids never had a chance of a normal life.

      While I agree with you about Ozzie and feel he has the right to say whatever he wants, and he has the right to speak his mind, that doesn't mean there are never consequences. There are no consequences from the government. Nobody is going to be arrested. But I totally agree with the sentiment.

      A private organization can not legally persecute an employee for being gay, for being Muslim or Christian, or being black or Hispanic, so what gives them the right to punish Ozzie for "admiring" Castro? I think it is sad that these lunatics are allowed to get anywhere near a funeral, but I also think it is a sad day when Americans are not entitled to have their own political opinions, without worrying about potential punishment from their employer ..

      bgpappa 5 years ago from Sacramento, California

      America isn't easy Jersey. Ozzie was punished by a private organization, not the government, and that is the difference. But I get your point. But if we are truly free, then people get to say things that make other people mad without retribution from the government. That is true freedom. But the fact that we CAN do something doesn't mean we should. And I think that is what everyone is forgetting. Yes, these protestors CAN protest at a soldier's funeral technically. But they shouldn't. And I and everyone else has the right to tell them to shut it.

      Thanks for stopping by.

      America is a pretty strange place? A guy in Florida kills an unarmed child, because he finds him "suspicious", and claims self defense? You have religious nuts that burn Korans, and protest at funerals, and that's OK, because everyone is entitled to their opinion.. right? The free speech thing .. well unless you are Ozzie Guillen, who apparently has NO right to "admire" Fidel Castro. You have just got to imagine what all this looks like from the outside looking in ..

      I agree he has the right to say it, and I have the right to say what I am saying. But to say it at a soldier's funeral, its more than offensive. Just because you have the right to do it doesn't mean you should. By the way, Jesus would have shown more tolerance that these guys do.

      Scratch the line about me writing a hub about the WBC... Rob pretty much summed up everything, in a nutshell. Thanks Rob! But I want to add that every time you see Shirley Phelps interviewed, whether on TV or by people that come up to her during their protests, whenever questions are directed toward her faith and/or her sins, she gives an incoherent answer completely avoids the question, in general, and is disrespectful and clearly fails God's command, as stated:

      "Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect." -- 1 Peter 3:15

      Just watch any news segment or protest video confrontation on YouTube and you'll see what I'm talking about.

      I'm looking to write a hub about this issue sometime soon but I have to say this... WBC does not deserve to be protected by the Constitution. How they can go out and maliciously inflict emotional distress to mourning families then cower behind the Constitution, shows us that they are true hypocrites and blasphemers.

      Some facts for you about this blight on Christianity Raoul:

      (1) The founder and minister (Fred Phelps) is a former lawyer who was disbarred for frivolous litigation.

      (2) One of Fred's daughters has actually disowned him and changed her name... to hide her identity.

      (3) Almost every person in the church and protests is a family member of Phelps

      (4) Their sole income is proceeds from litigation suing for being deprived for their Constitutional rights

      (5) Westboro Bpatist church is a constant target of police visits for child abuse and spousal abuse yet nothing can be proven

      (6) The city of Topeka has enacted multiple resolutions condemning WestBoro Baptist Church

      (7) One of their most infamous protests was standing outside the church for the Matthew Shepard funeral with a float saying "Matthew as been in hell for xx days.xx days in hell" and their web site still carries this page.

      (8) THe phelps family lives in a compound with children, grand children, etc

      (9) Phelps son carries on the family heritage of legal blood sucking by filing law suits against those who block their protests

      (10) The web site contains a schedule. It is a pure scare tactic as they seldom show up at more than 1 - 2 of the scheduled locations a month if that many.

      You know I am Active Duty Army and I was in the Honor Guard about 6 months ago, and some nut cases with signs came, but I have to say Thank God for the bikers, they did not even come near us. But they were shouting crazy things through a microphone. If I was able to take some of those guys out, im sure all of us would. There is a difference between freedom of speech and harassment, guess those guys will never understand it. I know for sure though if my son or daughter has gotten killed in a war, those guys better not show up cause I have got something for them.

      Though their signs are offensive still they are getting the message out there that God hates sin.

      Everything they protest is actually sin; murder, homosexuality, fornication, divorce, and so on.

      I don't think Reverend Phelps is a loony. He is a fire and brimstone preacher.

      He has an impressive secular resume. He was at one time a civil rights lawyer. Eleven of his thirteen children are laywers.He is not a novice.

      For reasons for others to figure out; he is well armed and protected to preach against sin.

      I don't agree with HOW he says what he says, but I do agree that America is in deep trouble with the God of the Bible.

      He has every right to say what he says and the Supreme Court agrees.

      I feel sorry for their brainwashed kids. What kind of parent would let their kid hold a sign like that?

      They should have gone with that crazy guy Jim Jones or that other nut in the sweat lodge. Maybe some sense would have sept through their ignorant brains.

      They should go live with Ben Ladin because they are no better than he is. They probably have no soul. Notice on their website they say they are not trying to save people's souls. What kind of church is that? Sounds like a crazy cult to me.

      We just need to pray for these people. That is all especially if the government will not stop them from protesting at the brave young men's funerals. (even if they were gay)

This group is totally disrespectful and the fact that they protested on the Virginia Tech shooting shows that they themselves need to be shot because they are just as crazy as the psycho who led the shooting at Tech. If they go back to Virginia Tech this April I hope some of my college friends knock a few of them out and knock some sense into them!!!

      oldman,

      to whom are you referring. The people who side with the terrorists and pray for our soldiers to die, or those who don't like those people?

      Thanks for reading

      It seems to me that you people are really muslems hiding behind someone elses religion. I beleive all of you should be on a terrorist watch list and investigated very closely.

      I am almost in tears reading this. My husband is a soldier who has served 3 tours in Iraq. He and I have had many friends injured and killed in Iraq - one of which these heartless people protested his funeral....

      American life style is not only a poison to America but the rest of the world. Americans are little more then Animals. Their only goal is to feed their greedy and selfish urges, no matter how many people have to die in order for their greedy urges to be fulfilled. That is okay as long as those people are not American. Oww wait. I forgot 9/11 which was America's doing. LOl they have hkilled their own people just so they can murder millions of muslim and get some oil in their tanks. I especially belive that their will actually be a whole section of hell just for Americans. America is just a big burden on Earth and humanity. Peace is not possible with American policies like "Americnas first". America has never been about peace. Their type of peace inlcludes opression and torture. Their type of peace consists of the theory that American needs are more important then needs of every other people. That is what America is based on.

      Fred Phelps is the most miserable, disgusting excuse for

      a human being that I have ever heard of or read about. He

      barely deserves the title of "human" My question to him"

      Thanks manwithnopants,

      I agree. Its a combination of perversion of religion and patriotism at the same. An incredible feat but certainly not conduct I condone. Thanks for reading.

      First time reader, and I'll be back bgpappa. Most of my stuff is on religion and politics, so I'll give you my simple take. God hates hate. It's not God who hates America (although he's not real happy with a few things) it's these dirt bags who hate America. This stuff pisses me off. Great hub and you've got a new fan.

      These people are the most disgusting and outrageous excuses for human beings on planet Earth. Even if I did agree with their statements which I unequivocally DO NOT, I certainly wouldn't consider a funeral the propper time to make my voice heard. Their message is hateful, disrespectful and beyond absurd. Also, I firmly believe the children of these members should be taken away from them immediately. Breeding hate that young is outrageously irresponsible. These kids don't even know what they're saying! Yet they will grow up to be distructive, self righteous hate mongers. Dispicable.

      No they don't source. I think (think) that they think god puts things on this earth as tests to see who is really worthy. Bunch of crap if you ask me, but I think that is how they explain the divide you point out.

      Thanks for reading.

      They seem to believe that the almighty, perfect, and all knowing God is in the habit of mass producing creatures he ends up hating. May be they think God is also neurotic and this almighty being desperately needs their actions to please Him.

      May be they should follow Toyota, who despite their imperfections, seem to have a far better track record on their creations compared to God.

      Do they really know who God is to tell us what he likes or hates?

      John,

      The Caps really add to your credibility. Could you make a reasoned argument.

      And by the way, if this in some way trying to support this group, I think you proved my point.

      Thanks for reading.

      This is a cult and the worst kind. They pretend to belong to the Church but they spew their lies. Christ loved and died for us while we were all still sinners and His offer is for all who would believe, confess and repent. I don't see any of Christ Love in these folks, not a drop. They are deep woods lost if you ask me and their leading the little ones astray. Jesus said by this you will know them (His Children) If they obey my commands and have love for one another.

      Outdoorsguy, I feel for you, I had the same exact reaction! BGpappa, you are so right, we can comment on it here, in the lovely USofA and most other countries don't have that freedom. Or the freedom to be whatever it is you work toward, not what your born into.
