Newtown school shooting: Thoughts and tributes
Mockery of a Church to Protest Sandy Hook Elementary Prayer Vigil Tonight
It's bad enough that the Phelps family calls itself a church which is a mockery and a blight on all those who hold true religious beliefs.This abomination to all believers of any religion continue to show how deranged and how evil they truly are.
The Westboro Baptist Church has announced that it will journey to Newtown, Connecticut to protest the prayer vigil this evening for the victims and their families of the Sandy Hook Elementary massacre. The Phelps and followers have shown their delusion over and over in protests at the funerals of our military members who have fallen defending their right to free speech.
This group of fanatics on steroids attempted to disrupt the vigil following the Aurora, Colorado theater shooting earlier this year. People locked arms and prevented the so-called church from getting close to that vigil.
According to published reports, on Twitter members of Phelps' cult announced they were going to Newtown "to sing praise to God for the glory of His work in executing His judgment."
What a travesty!
Yes, there is freedom of speech in this country, but there are times to speak and times not to speak. These misguided souls have no understanding, no compassion and no comprehension of God or religion.
From the Cornfield, one day, hopefully sooner than later, Phelps and his followers will stand in judgment before God to answer for their sins against humanity and their taking of the Lord's name in vain.
