Serves Them Right

Some of you might remember a funeral for a Marine who was killed in Iraq that was protested by a church in Kansas. They weren't protesting the, instead they were protesting America's acceptance of homosexuality. This is an article on the court ruling today, between the Marine's family and that church.
Here is another article on this court ruling.

Whether or not you agree with gay rights or not I don't think is the point here. This Kansas church has protested about 300 military funerals and their purpose for this was they think that the military is allowing homosexuality to grow around the globe as our military advances. I'm pretty sure I'm not the only one disgusted by this church and what they are doing.

How can anyone come to Jesus when this is their view of what a Christian is? I guess my biggest question is though: is this church doing anything positive or should we protest the protesters?

shoot ... well since these guys are already protesting the funerals I don't know what to do with men's ministry ... have to think of something new.

This saddens me.

"God hates fags" makes about as much sense to me as "God is War." thanks for bringing this up.

as for "God is War," I agree with you that there is room for the church to honor soldiers, but lets not ever confuse (which we often do and have done for years) serving God with supporting war or being patriotic. The early church didn't allow soldiers to join unless they quit the army...i'm not advocating this, but its worth thinking about.

i'd like to hear their argument about how they think this is doing any good whatsoever so i could slap them.

I like you idea of picketing them...seriously I wonder if anyone has done that? I think they are going to go bankrupt...which is awesome. What would open theism have to say about these guys?

The worst part of this church is that they are mostly related. The only pastor had a big family and most of them go to the church. Brainwashed maybe?
