An editorial in California’s Redding: Record Searchlight newspaper wants to say “The nuts of Westboro Baptist Church should stay in Kansas” rather than picketing a local soldier’s funeral.
And they do… they call WBC a “poisonous parody of faith whose adherents should stay in Kansas.”
But what is up with the first line in the piece, referring to WBC?
They can’t be real Christians. They must be part of an atheist cabal.
Their goal? To undermine churches. To give religion a black eye. To plant in the minds of the young a twisted and evil view of Christianity.
How else to explain the perverse tactics of the Kansas-based Westboro Baptist Church, whose members travel the country to picket soldiers’ funerals with a message of hate?
Why would the writers attack bigotry by making bigoted statements themselves?
Seems to be a trend.
The comments on the editorial’s thread are even worse…
