Who does God hate?


I find that watching crazy people in the morning, while ingesting copious quantities of caffeine, always gets my blood going, though it may not be good for my blood pressure.

This morning I watched an I-report video on CNN about the Westboro Baptist Church. The video was shot by Chris Morrow on Sunday, October 18th at a protest in San Diego.

The Westboro Baptist Church, the charming folks behind the GodHatesFags.com website, protested the Rock Church based on a difference in interpretation of who God hates and who should be allowed to worship. Whereas the Westboro Baptist Church believes that God hates a lot of people: members of the American military, Jews, Gays and the USA, the Rock Church has opened their congregation to all, believing that God loves everyone.

From the Westboro Baptist Church website: Since 1955, Westboro Baptist Church (WBC) has taken forth the precious from the vile, and so is as the mouth of God (Jer. 15:19). In 1991, WBC took her ministry to the streets, conducting 41,226 41,226 <i>over 34,000</i> peaceful demonstrations (to date) opposing the f@g lifestyle of soul-damning, nation-destroying filth. In response, america bombed WBC; & burned WBC on 8-2-2008. God is america’s enemy: 5,200 dead soldiers; $11 trillion+ in national debt.

Selecting groups within society to blame for the troubles of the world is not a new tactic, though watching dissent amongst two Christian congregations regarding God’s prejudices demonstrates the subjective interpretation of religion by the individual. It is clear that humans are casting God in their own image, believing with heartfelt sincerity that God harbors the same beliefs and biases that they do.
