Westboro Baptist “Church” To Picket Bryan Dunn Funeral

Westboro Baptist “Church” To Picket Bryan Dunn Funeral

Talk about “jackass.” After enraging most of America and disgusting authentic Bible-believing Christians everywhere by picketing funerals of tragically killed kids, fallen U.S. servicemen and women, people of Jewish faith and beloved proponents of equal rights, the radical hate group known as Westboro Baptist Church now plans to branch out into celebrity funerals as well.

According to a new press release, the group has now proclaimed that Ryan Dunn, star of MTV’s comedy stunt show Jackass, is “in hell” for his “vulgar stunts” after dying in a car crash late Monday. As the press release states, Dunn’s funeral will apparently serve well as a venue to warn “all not to make a mock of sin & to fear & obey God” and further explain to the world exactly what God “hates.”  Westboro’s website describes the innate hatefulness imbibes in how and why they do what they do:

WBC engages in daily peaceful sidewalk demonstrations opposing the homosexual lifestyle of soul-damning, nation-destroying filth. We display large, colorful signs containing Bible words and sentiments, including: GOD HATES FAGS, FAGS HATE GOD, AIDS CURES FAGS, THANK GOD FOR AIDS, FAGS BURN IN HELL, GOD IS NOT MOCKED, FAGS ARE NATURE FREAKS, GOD GAVE FAGS UP, NO SPECIAL LAWS FOR FAGS, FAGS DOOM NATIONS, THANK GOD FOR DEAD SOLDIERS, FAG TROOPS, GOD BLEW UP THE TROOPS, GOD HATES AMERICA, AMERICA IS DOOMED, THE WORLD IS DOOMED, etc.

Westboro, which most mainstream Christians refuse to call a “church,” is widely despised for its use of bigoted and inflammatory hate speech, its perversion of the tenets of Christian faith, and its desecration of the solemnity and dignity of funerals. Though even despised by the Klu Klux Klan, Westboro was given the Supreme Court free-speech greenlight to enjoin such protests, so we can expect the circle of their sensational and hateful actions to continue expanding.

I'm a great proponent of freedom of speech (here I am on Care2, saying what I believe), and a card-carrying member of ACLU .... but I think the Supremes are wrong on this one. Picketing a funeral is like crying "fire" in a theater. It's just plain wrong, disgraceful, more than hurtful.

On behalf of the nation, and in spite of the lousy Supreme Court we currently have, I apologize to Ryan's family. And I wish them healing and peace in their loss.

Let me just say my apologies to the family...if anyone for any reason showed up to any of my family or friends funerals picketing it you might have another grave to dig.

Can you at least get his name right? It is Ryan not Bryan.The Westboro church is a disgrace and brings shame to people of the same faith.

Christ said: "Forgive them, for they know not what they do."

In Desiderata, American writer Max Ehrman said: "Avoid loud and aggressive persons, they are vexations to the spirit."

Are they all related or what? No one wants to JOIN that church - you have to be born into it. I wish they would implode already.

What would Jesus do? Would he launch a counter demonstration or try to counsel them? They would probably spit on him for his love of Mary Magdalene and his desire to help the poor, no matter who/what they were.

Too bad someone doesn't blow these nutters up.
