Funeral Protest???

My reading of the Gospel of Jesus Christ tells me that Jesus taught that God is Love and that God loves every body.
So I was mortified by the picture on the front page of today’s USA-Today of funeral protesters in York PA.

A fundamentalist Baptist church has been protesting at funerals of US service men and women who died in combat. This picture was taken at the funeral of a US Marine. It goes way beyond bad taste and hateful acts. The signs held by the woman state that “God hates Nebraska; God hates you, and Thank God for dead soldiers.” This is the antitheist of all that Christ taught.
They do not have common respect for the dead and grieving and they bring disrespect on the Baptist church. I note that most Baptist churches would find this action abhorrent. I can only think that the leader of this congregation is an “Anti-Christ” by preaching this kind of hate.

I really do not know what else to make of it.What


  1. Definitely not Christ-like. What a horrible thing to do.

    They should be praying for the souls of our fallen heroes and their families. Shame on them!

  2. Oops, forgot Baptists don't believe in Purgatory! ;)
