I wonder how many obese people go to Westboro Baptist Church? According to the bible gluttony is a sin and also according to the bible.... a sin is a sin. One is as bad as another. So therefore it is inconsistent for the Westboro Baptist Church to single out homosexuals as sinners and not do the same for those who are gluttonous?

They need to take the log out of their own eye before pointing out the cinder in someone elses?


I would imagine it has never crossed their minds at all.

And what about that "judge not that ye be not judged" thing?

I doubt they know the scripture and it's contextual meaning. The fact of the matter is, Christians are forbidden to judge non Christians. That only belongs to God himself. Christians ARE supposed to judge each other. If you are a follower of Jesus Christ and have a brother/sister that is flagrantly committing a sin, you have a responsibility to point it out to them. If they refuse to change, then you bring 2 or more other Christians before them to gently coerce them into changing their ways. If that does not work, then you bring it before the church.

But to hold the same standards to anybody outside their faith is unBiblical.

And what about loving your neighbor? No one was ever hated into becoming a Christian. I'm fairly certain if you tell someone that you find what they do disgusting they will never pass through the doors of your Church building.

I'm thinking Westboro has those verses totally ignored or ripped out of their Bibles. How you can read God's word in the New Testament and be totally oblivious to the big picture of 'love', the fruits of the spirit, 'b' attitudes etc.. tells me Westboro is just an obscure cult like sect that should be ignored.
