A far-right fundamentalist christian church in Topeka, Kansas headed by Fred Phelps. Think Pat Robertson cranked up to 11. They are notorious for the "God Hates Fags" campgain. To show their message, they select funerals of US troops who died in Iraq to picket, saying that these kids got killed as punishment for America's failure to persecute homosexuals. They first made the headlines when they went to the funeral of hate-crime victim Matthew Sheppard with signs saying "Matt In Hell" and other messages. If there's ever a disaster in the world, you can bet your ass that they will have something to say. Whenever they demonstrate, little kids as young as 6 can be seen brought along to hold signs by their parents.
After the asian tsunami the statement was that it was a "blessing from God." Somehow the idea was worked in that it was set up at a time that it would kill alot of Swedish tourists, because apparently Rev. Phelps has something against Scandinavia.
During the disastrous 2005 hurricane season, the church celebrated with signs like "Kudos Katrina" "Welcome Wilma" "Bring it on Beta" etc.
Also, the US casualties of the war on terror? The 3000 victims of the september 11 terrorist attacks? Martin Luther King and Corretta Scott King? The 14 guys who died in that coal mine? Every last Catholic on Earth? Reggie White? The Pope? Mr. Rogers? Yup, they're all in/going to Hell.
Oh, here's a fact! Phelps' 200 church members may only marry within the church. The catch is, it's made up entirely of relatives of either Fred or his wife. Hey, there's more than one way to keep the gene pool chlorinated.
Remember, kids, who would Jesus hate?

Some crazy church that thinks because the US is tolerant of homosexuality that God is killing our soldiers overseas. The church is made up of about 100 members of the pastors family and is unaffiliated with any other Baptists in the country. In other words... its a joke. The pastor is a nut-job lady who feels that she needs to travel around with her church to these military funerals and inform people through large signs reading 'God hates Fags!' and 'Thank God for IEDs' that the soldier is now 'rotting in hell' and so on. It must make her feel good. Her interviews with the large news companies (Fox News, MSNBC) can be found on the internet. They'll either be a good laugh for you or a huge frustration.
Westboro Baptist Church: 'Your son is now rotting in hell because the died fighting for a country that does not obey God! None of you are true Christians!'

A church that practices the literal meaning of the bible. They believe that the Tsunami was a good thing because it killed 'fags' and 'dykes'. They also believe Hurricane Katrina was 'God's' way of punishing America because apparently, in their opinion, 'God hates America'. These guys are a bunch of sad, uneducated, religious kooks who need to stop dictating what 'God' thinks, because how would they know? The answer is they don't. They construct a 'God' figure as a way to express their personal views on the world, these people make me sick and I can only hope that one day they will forget about prejudice and hate.
According to the Westboro Baptist Church, God Hates Fags, God Hates America, God Hates Sweden, God Hates Canada, and after this definition is posted God will apparently Hate Australia because that's where I am from!
How can anyone take these people seriously?

A church giving baptist, no CHRISTIANS, no God a bad name. They dont seem to understand God is love. Not just a few but EVERYONE(gay, bi,soldier, jew). God loves us despite our faults or mistakes, lets just hope they learn this.

A radical so-called "Church" under the leadership of so-called "Reverend" Fred Phelps based out of Topeka, Kansas. They are infamous for their controversial practice of picketing outside of funerals of U.S. servicemembers killed in Iraq. WBC Recently lost a $11,000,000 dollar judgement filed by a father of one of the late servicemembers whose funeral they picketed.
The freaks at Westboro Baptist Church makes all Christians look bad.

The Biggest ,Most successful trolls in the world.
Westboro Baptist Church Members are the biggest trolls in the world. They have been so successful that they have been banned from entering countries.

A lunatic cult led by a jackass named Fred Phelps. The WBC is known for its endless condemnation of homosexuals. The church claims to practice the purest form of Christiantiy, a claim that couldn't be further from the truth. The WBC's ideology is based on a severe distortion of Christian doctrine. If Jesus Christ ever visited this "Church", he would probably be dismayed and horrified by its practices. Heck, even many evangelicals consider the WBC un-Christian.
The entire Westboro Baptist Church is bound for hell.
