Hatred Disguised as Freedom of Speech
You get no name or picture here. I will not give you any more publicity than you have already gotten. It is undeserved. SHAME ON YOU!!!!
Go ahead protest one of the Military Bases, I DARE You!
Just because it’s Legal doesn’t make it right. This is in regards to the protestors who feel it’s necessary to protest at the funerals of our fallen Soldiers. Protesting against homosexuality. There are too many other places to launch a protest, why pick a funeral? Because the dead that can‘t speak back. You are weak, go protest at one of the many Military Bases that we have. Or are there too many live people there for you to take on?
Freedom of Speech
The bereaved are so grief stricken at the loss of their child/family member that nothing is done until it’s too late. A change of venue is not possible. The Courts have upheld the 1st Amendment “Freedom of Speech”. Yes, they should. I know it even feels wrong to say this, but if it were any other way I wouldn’t be writing what I am about to.
To all of you who believe what this so called Church are doing is right, I believe in my heart of hearts that you are headed in a southerly direction. And I don’t mean geographically, so to speak. I believe that you are the proverbial snow ball headed for hell.
Shame on You!!
I cannot believe that ANY God would condone the direct and purposeful hurting of another human being. A funeral is a time for bereavement, a time for grieving, a time for coming together to remember the loved one and a chance for healing. What you are doing is postponing all of the above. In effect you are hurting another persons time with God, since most of these protests occur around or near a Church, at the very least with a Pastor in attendance. It is guaranteed that someone within the group is praying. Whether it be for the lost one, the living ones or even the souls of those protesting. Someone is praying, this is without a doubt.
Shame on You! How would you feel if someone were to come along and protest your time with God? You certainly wouldn’t like it. You would feel as though you were being intruded upon. You would feel as though someone was violating you as a person.
Just Plain Wrong!
It is none of your business that there are those who prefer the same sex, just as it is none of mine. If God has a problem with it, then he will deal with them on an individual basis. It is not up to you to interpret what God has to say then beat it into others. We have the Bible, it is up to us as individuals to interpret it. If we seek someone with higher understanding to help us, then that too is our business.
Do I have beliefs? You betcha! But that too is NONE of your business. I am not trying to beat my religious beliefs into your small minded heads. I am trying to help you understand that when you cause harm to another person that is WRONG. Wrong on so many levels.
Do you need help reading your Bible? Maybe one little passage? It’s pretty plain and simple, self explanatory, no need for someone with a higher level of understanding to help you on this. John 13:34-35 Here I’ll put it right here so you don’t have to go look it up!
34 “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. 35 By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.”
How simple is that? How difficult is it to understand? Are you doing as has been commanded? If you go around toting your Bibles, thumping people on the head with the word of God, then these words should be quite simple for you to understand.
There is no phrase that says “only if they do as God says for them to do” or “live a Godly life“…. No, it’s simple LOVE ONE ANOTHER… That’s it! When you protest, are you loving one another, or are you chanting words of hate? Picket signs that read “God Hates You”, how do you know this?
Just 1 more
How about one more for you to chew on? Matthew 7:1-5 As before, I will put it here so you don’t have to look it up.
"Judge not, that ye be not judged. For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again. And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye? Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull the mote out of thine eye; and behold, a beam is in thine own eye? Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast the mote out of thy brother's eye."
Do you have the right to Judge? Are you without sin? Have you never done anything wrong in this life? If you are hurting others, then you are committing a sin.
Hatred Plain and simple
Just because law allows us Freedom of Speech does not mean we should use that right to hurt or condemn another human being. These Soldiers that you are protesting, what did they do? They got a job, took an oath to protect your rights, upheld their end of the bargain, lost their life. What did you get out of it? The right to protest at their funeral for something that has no bearing on the way they lived their life.
You are just protesting to get your name in the papers. You want or need your 15 minutes of fame. You want publicity? Go on a talk show. Write a book. But for God’s sake, stop hurting those who did nothing to deserve your hatred. This is hatred, plain and simple. Hatred of a way of life that is different than yours. Try living, just for a moment within those shoes of the ones you hate.
Hatred disguised as Freedom of Speech. That’s all that it is. You will have God to answer to when your time comes. For your sake I pray that he is merciful. You say “The Wrath of God is coming”, in this you might be true, did he personally appoint you to save our souls? That is entirely up to us to save our own souls.
- Christian Veterans Protect the Funeral of a Fallen Soldier
With the Westboro church back in the news again, we thought we would show a video where some Christian people banded together to make sure they couldn't ruin a fallen soldier's funeral. This is great.
Maybe you belong to one of these?
Maybe the good Reverend Jim Jones has some kool-aid left? Maybe David Koresh wants your young women so he can impregnate them with his seed. Did you miss your trip on Haley’s Comet? I’m sure Satan has a room at the Inn, you can spout your hatred there.
Take alook at this link/video
Something is being done now! Veterans are standing together to ensure that the funerals are not disturbed by these so called Relious fanatics.
