I love God with all my heart; He is my greatest treasure, the joy of my heart, the love of life. Hopefully you, and people like you, will one day rid the world of Christianity, altogether. It has brought only suffering to a nation under false pretences. He will take the time to find you also if you let Him. But on one count you are dead right: I really should just skip you. I think the presentation is what is socially offensive, but then again no one likes to be called out as a sinner who is going to hell. Massively ironic, as working on the Sabbath is punishable by death according to the Bible. The kids do not know what the signs say and that kid getting hit with the cup was bad but a kid that young should not be out there and it is bad to say but well deserved. It may be a consequence that they do, but they try and avoid it at all costs. if SHE WAS MY ONLY EXAMPLE.. ONE WHO has faith.. He loves this family and all of us. It wasn't a stupid question and I'm sure he was prepared for part of the reaction he got. The reaction they provoke is universal, and that is by design. Amen. God does not hate his people. i dont think it is an attack or bigotry to state someone is delusional. Perhaps if the grandpa died in a wreck... then what? What I got from the film was that all the hatred shown to the Phelps just makes them worse. I cant help but to laugh at so many things in this documentary... the little kids didn't know wtf the signs even meant... they are in the prime stages of brainwash. I just can't believe how brainwashed they are, the church only came into existance because of the crazy mind of Fred Phelps, a man who beat his wife and children regularly. I believe, and this is my personal opinion, that Humans as a race created God. I would say that these children have not even reached the age of such curiosity, and beyond that, it is repeatedly told to them, day after day. Don't you yanks carry guns anymore? I know that this family, disappoints him and what they are doing saddens him. As you continually remind us, it is our duty to point out as people stray from the word of God and his law. To make my point there is no truth in bible or any such thing and if there is a god why would he give them so much rules and give them free will at the same time and don't say anything stupid like he need to be worship or something if there is a "god" like the one you say why would he care about any of use he knows all and sees all so why would he pay attention to what you say sense he already know what you are going to say. All this family is doing is following what the Bible says. It was good to see Louis got through to a couple of them. This is a classic case of trying to find salvation at the expense of another's condemnation. Tim, I am happy that there are many Americans who hate all the 3 I have mentioned above.These are the true Americans who should rightly be called civilized and responsible people and who are protecting their motherland from all the evil things. They are Americans, so I'm sure according to their twisted frame of thought He would hate them as well. This cult doesn't have good Christian intentions. Good day. i am a collection of my memories and experiences. Let's hope they cannot find men who would want to marry them and reproduce another generation of this noxious behaviour, then this cult will be done. Knowledge always sprouts out of a "presumption seed" harvested from a "theory tree" and sometimes cannot be proven for hundred of years. “Or crookbackt, or a dwarf, or that hath a blemish in his eye, or be scurvy, or scabbed, or hath his stones broken; No man that hath a blemish of the seed of Aaron the priest shall come nigh to offer the offerings of the LORD made by fire: he hath a blemish; he shall not come nigh to offer the bread of his God.

Any one can say they are a "church", that is not going to make you a Church! Sadly, it is the government-run public schools that turn people into conformist sheep...easily manipulated by whomsoever tries to sway their opinion about something in order to gain control over them. The press likes to tell a simple story, one that conforms to others that are stereotypes so that it makes their job easier and it helps the public understand a story easier. Even the mother who seemed really unpleasant, was just practically brainwashed by her father, "Gramps." I do wish they'd go away and quit using the Gospel to spread their hate.

If it wasn't for our courageous soldiers they wouldn't be able to preach freely like they do in the first place. Saying all racists and homophobes are the same and should be wiped off the earth simply for having THOSE opinions on THOSE subjects you find offensive, while turning a blind eye to the rest of the good in them is no more hate speech than when Phelps does the same to soldiers or gays. Is it just me or is Shirley oddly fascinating? thanks for the feed back. All though they have done HORRIBLE things, I do not wish to learn of there eternal damnation. Social Services needs to take those poor kids away from those lunatics. P.S. It's insane, they will burn in hell by the looks of it and I am not even religious.

We can only hope so. I HAVE SEEN AND FELT HIM . Only difference is, this group hasn't murdered (yet) and they are much more public.
