browsing through my internet newsfeed when I noticed an offhand comment in an article saying that Westboro Baptist was protesting the Olympics. Occasionally curious to see this trainwreck in action I tried briefly to do a little more research. In a brief look see I didn’t see much more about it but that doesn’t surprise me. Their shenanigans are mostly ignored by the rational world at this point. It also wouldn’t surprise me if they were actually protesting Rio. After all, the Olympics shifting stance about transgender athletes does seem to be right up WBC’s protest alley.

Not to be deterred, I did something I frequently do for theological or political research but have apparently never done for something as base as Westboro Baptist Church. I went to the source. At least, I tried to. Apparently their church domain is “www.godhatesfags.com”? Really? Somebody please tell me this is a parody site. Before digging into Rio I tried to figure out if this was their real page or not. As best as I can tell, it is and quite frankly, that sickens me. After a few minutes, I had to get out of there and go take a shower to wash that filth off before I could come back to the keyboard and start typing here.

React: In case you didn’t guess, I can’t stand Westboro Baptist Church. But you might be a little bit surprised to know why. I mean, if they want to be all stupid and angry and protest everything from Pokemon Go to the Olympics to military funerals, that’s fine. Go right ahead. America has a long standing tradition of protest and the frivolous are just as free to do so as the deadly serious, the not quite politically correct just as much as those on the cutting edge of social reform. What gets me is they call themselves a “church” and they blame God as a motivator for their evil. If they want to sin, go ahead and sin… just don’t call yourself a Christian as you revel in it.

The same thing is true for pretty much another issue. If someone wants to go out and get drunk every weekend, that’s their choice. While I won’t be going out with you, I have no problem sitting down for a cup of coffee (or çay here in Turkey) any time you want to chat. The same is true with the practising homosexual, the white collar embezzler, the porn addict, the drug dealer, and the gossip. However some person choses to live their life… its their life and I have no problem showing my love and friendship to them even if I might not participate in, or even endorse, their choices.

But is someone wants to get wasted every night and then call themselves a Christian… I want nothing to do with them. If they are Christian and proud. Go somewhere else. If you want to be verbally abusive, or openly cheating on your spouse, or spreading every rumor that finds its way to your ears while pretending to be a faithful follower of Christ… I want no part of it. Either turn around or shut up. Don’t call yourself a part of the spotless pride while gloriously wallowing in the mud. If you are fighting a sin, I will work with you and pray with you and storm heaven’s gates on your behalf. If you are engaging in sin while not claiming to be a Christian I will pray for you and meet with you and storm heaven’s gates on your behalf. But if you call yourself a Christian while proudly holding that God hate’s fags sign, or that rainbow flag… I might still storm heaven’s gates on your behalf but here on earth I will do everything I can to disassociate from you. Westboro Baptist protester, you are not a Christian. Stop lying to yourself and the world. Actively openly proud gay church member, you are not a Christian. Stop lying to yourself and the world.

Many inside the church are very quick to judge society and culture and “the world”. Many in that world and even other Christians are quick to say, “Don’t judge.” We are called to judge, but we are called to judge only those who claim to be part of God’s family. So, judge for yourselves. Am I right on this or am I just a hate filled bigot?

A Delaware college has severed ties with a professor who said a student who was held by North Korea and later died "got exactly what he deserved".

Kathy Dettwyler sparked a backlash on Facebook when she wrote Otto Warmbier was "typical of a mindset of a lot of young, white, rich, clueless males".

Mr Warmbier, 22, died a week after he was freed by North Korea, where he was serving 15 years hard labour.

He was medically evacuated earlier this month and died in a coma.

Ms Dettwyler, an anthropology professor at the University of Delaware, criticised Mr Warmbier in a post on her Facebook page, blaming his parents for what happened to him.

"These are the same kids who cry about their grades because they didn't think they'd really have to read and study the material to get a good grade," she wrote.

"His parents ultimately are to blame for his growing up thinking he could get away with whatever he wanted."

"Maybe in the US, where young, white, rich, clueless white males routinely get away with raping women," she continued.

"Not so much in North Korea. And of course, it's Otto's parents who will pay the price for the rest of their lives."

The Nevada State Democratic Party has released audio of Republican Congressman Cresent Hardy speaking to a Libertarian Party Expo in Las Vegas in which he says people with disabilities are a drain on society. From Raw Story:

“I have three children,” Hardy explains. “One of them is summa cum laude and two were magnum cum laude. The other one, he didn’t need an education. He works for Raytheon, smarter than all the rest. He works hard, he builds things that are genius. Some people have that ability.”

“But they all work hard. They are raising their own families,” he continued. “They will not be a drain on society, the best they can. Hopefully they will never have some disability that causes them to have to utilize that.”

Response from the Nevada Dems:

“If Cresent Hardy wants to talk about ‘drains on society,’ he should point a finger at his buddy, deadbeat rancher Cliven Bundy, not disabled children,” said Nevada State Democratic Party spokesperson Zach Hudson. “Hardy has compared employment non-discrimination laws to ‘segregation,’ agreed with Mitt Romney that 47% of the American people are ‘freeloaders,’ and now called children with disabilities ‘drains on society.’ Cresent Hardy’s comments are outrageous and he owes an immediate apology to every Nevadan with a disability.”

It's okay to decorate a police car with rainbow flags, but not Bible verses.


Proverbs 16:18-21 (NKJV)
18 Pride goes before destruction,
And a haughty spirit before a fall.

19 Better to be of a humble spirit with the lowly,
Than to divide the spoil with the proud.

20 He who heeds the word wisely will find good,
And whoever trusts in the Lord, happy is he.

In response to another member, who wrote: "We are not the only social animals but we are the only ones with religion. The others get along fine."

What in hell are babbling about. Animals, dim wit, rape and kill other animals without conscience. Some species eat their young. The idea other species are better than human beings is one of the dumbest comments I've ever read.

But, humans that reject God and HIS MORALITY are disaster. You're worldview is a disaster that has helped create that disaster,

I'm sick of you reaping the benefits of a nation rooted in Christianity while bashing Christianity. You only have the quality of life you do BECAUSE OF CHRISTIANITY.

Your rights are guaranteed BECAUSE OUR FOUNDERS were Christian and believed those rights were endowed by the Creator. That needs to sink through your thick skull

Quit once again while you're behind. It is what you do best.

Rejecting God retards the mind

In response to another group member who wrote: "Your lack of logical ability is astounding. There is zero reason that a lack of religion does, or has to, lead to moral relativism and situational ethics."

Good grief, you're the one completely lacking in logic.

If there isn't a standard of absolute of truth independent of mankind, ALL opinions are based on subjective human opinion and absolute morality is impossible.

Human opinion can be nothing but subjective. If you don't grasp that, you either don't want to or aren't the sharpest tool in the shed.

Non-Christian cultures have been disaster throughout human history. Atheistic ones are the absolute worst with 100 million people having been murdered by them in the last century.

You have a worldview that is a lie and th indefensible. You get your panties in bunch when it is exposed.

I married a woman who has an adopted Chinese daughter. This one does not act like a typical Chinese person. Normally Chinese people are polite, meek, quiet and mostly caring people, however this Chinese girl is the OPPOSITE! She is LOUD, DISRESPECTFUL, MANULIPTIVE, CONTROLLING AND VERY SELF- SERVING. I have to live with her EVERYDAY because my wife had already adopted her before we met. Honestly, can't stand her! She looks like a male ( if she did not have long hair, you wouldn't know she is a female! She has no feminine qualities at all! I sometimes wonder who would date her when she gets older! I do not want her living with me any longer than she has to, but how can I get her married off so she will go away and get out of our house? There are really no Chinese men around, and most white males would never find her attractive (unless she learns to be more femine, meek, quiet and not so awfully disrespectful. She thinks the earth revolves her! The only mate that would be suitable for her would be a black man! She has a much better chance of a black man being interested in her than she does a Chinese or white man! The only small relief I get is the time that she goes to visit her other parent, and that is only for a few days on weekends.

Medical procedures for trans people should be allowed for Aryans. I don't consider transgenderism "degenerate", being trans is simply a way of life. I should have been born in a female body, but I wasn't. I disagree with people who say "you are whatever sex you're born", they obviously are content in their own bodies and haven't felt what it is like.
I totally oppose degenerates in society such as communists and inferior races, they should be purged from a Nat Soc society.

“I’m not saying that transgender individuals pose a greater threat to safety than any other individuals but my daughter’s right to privacy is not based on someone’s identity,” Dalton said. “It’s based on biology and anatomy, which does not change regardless of a student’s struggle with gender dysphoria.”

I think National socialism and transgender politics can coincide. Many NatSocs don't realize the rich history of trans people through their race's history.
I have told fellow NatSocs about my gender and most of them said they thought it was unusual but that it doesn't impede on my ability to be a NatSoc. Some even are supportive, I've met fellow trans-NatSocs online too.

[This is a transgender Nazi]

Because my race is at war, we're being invaded by immigrants and are being sold bullshit by the Jews about "multiculturalism" and how "all races are equal". I want for my people to be united, we first need to purge the traitors such as communists, jews and nigger lovers. Once that is done we can set about radically transforming society and building a strong nation to defeat our enemies. Our race is stronger than all others and has a right to rule.
I know some NatSocs are opposed to trans NatSocs, but all I can do is to tell them the truth about being trans. I'm transitioning currently and thankfully I've always had a slim and petite frame so I will not look manly in any way soon, I don't plan on bringing up the fact that I was born male in the future. I am going to legally change my name and gender and then move state.
I don't think the hormones have changed my political opinions at all. I've thought this way since before I started the hormones.

[Stamp: Sorry, idiots, but men cannot be abused/raped by women.]

I still can't believe that no one realizes this simple truth. All men want sex. As such, they always consent. There is no such thing as female-on-male rape.
All men like their women weaker than them. They assume they can push their women around. As such, they deserve what's coming to them. There is no such thing as female-on-male abuse.

i stopped going to my church, because of secret occultic witchcrafts and sorceries, being poisoned with sleep deprivation for ten years, by bishops and their wives and one day i was just fed up with suffering to the torture of being drugged and poisoned. i dont think im liberal in the sense that im not conservative. there were the satanists the vampires the women in black all part of the evil side of power and secret combinations and covens. All of them are enemies of God, even the people that claim to be saints, they are false brethren and practice secret abominations and now there are cultic people that wear "pink" rather than black and its not just a fad nor is it a wardrobe choice. and now i visit other churches and all of them have the same kind of babylonian sorceries which are condemned in Acts 17 and in Rev 18:4, 23

I would answer the question with this statement: Those who break the sabbath DO DESERVE to die. In fact, those who dishonor their parents ought to be stoned to death. Those who tell little 'white lies' deserve to spend eternity in Hell. God would be perfectly just in punishing us with the severest torment for breaking his Sabbath, BUT God has instead, sent His Son into the world to save sinners... to reconcile them back to himself. The work of our High Priest, Jesus Christ has changed everything. My sin is the reminder that I need a savior. My feeble attempts to better myself ALWAYS ends in my utter failure and a feeling of wretchedness but I am in Christ and there is now NO CONDEMNATION.

Say what you want about the covenants and theocracies and historical theology but the goal of every discussion that involves falling short of God's glory should be directed to the Cross. Why don't we kill sabbath breakers? Because the Cross changes everything.

Because you can’t reason with ideologues that will burn and loot your shops, rape your dogs, and shake you down for your every last penny before murdering you. Even IF they get their way, but will especially do so if they don’t get their way. That is the climate Obama has helped cultivate. And it is near-impossible to have a meaningful conversation with someone who refuses to see that.

Didn't impress me much in New York, and still doesn't. Judeo-Christianity doesn't advocated the annihilation of all those who do not believe as they. Islam is an ideological bastardization of all religions using violence and terror to subjugate the masses into compliance. If Kelly does not realize that by now, we have a real problem with the head of the DHS.

Fun Fact - England Invented Darwin.

Fact! They sent the egg head all around the world to try and get rid of him. He came back with all kinds of stupid theories and was made fun of. Then he got a hold of his father's paperwork and decided to copy it and sell it as his own. Of course his father thought that the ancient Greeks were wonderful with their Gnosticism. So his father decided to copy their paper work and sell it as his own. Then we ended up with the theory of evolution because the world hated Jesus so much that by the 19th century they would rather eat a lemon whole than continue on with the sour puss face they always got when hearing about Jesus.
