Have you heard of this Fred Phelps character? Being neither homosexual nor religious, I had not paid attention to these people before. His motto is “God hates fags,” which he considers profound. I guess it’s so profound that the profundity eludes my simple mind.
Phelps says that God controls the destiny of every human. If that is so, then didn’t God create fags? Does God hate what He Himself is responsible for? (A form of the problem of evil.)
Doesn’t Jesus talk about loving sinners and not passing judgment? How do these people justify the contradiction?
One of their signs says, “God Sent the IED’s.” They’re saying that God sent terrorists to kill Americans because of homosexuality. Like Dinesh D’Souza, they are apologists for terrorism because they have a problem with America. If Phelps wants something really profound to read, he should try Leonard Peikoff’s essay, “Religion vs. America.”
These people are the best evidence yet that God does not exist. I mean, would an all-powerful God let these fools claim to speak for Him? Not only them, but also the peanut butter guy, not to mention terrorists killing innocent people in His name. If there were a God, then there would be a lot of people out there making Him look bad.
