WESTBORO BAPTIST CHURCH TO PICKET GAME #3 & #4 OF THE WORLD SERIES, WHERE TITAN PERVERTS @CARDINALS & @REDSOX WILL BOW DOWN WITH THOUSANDS TO THE GOOFY SPORTS YOU WORSHIP INSTEAD OF GOD AT BUSCH STADIUM, ST. LOUIS, MO.

Here are 11 points to ponder:
1) Their website name is godhatesfags.com I highly doubt God is happy with anyone who puts words in his mouth. Jesus said "Love one another as I have loved you." No where does it say profess My hate of certain people.
2) What does homosexuality have to do with baseball anyway? Maybe they heard "he was a switch hitter" or "he tagged him on the backside" or "he took two balls" or "he popped out to the pitcher" or "he took one down the middle" or "he's a good ballplayer" or "he's going to play a double-header" or "whose on first, what's on second, and I don't know's on third" or "he went down looking" or "he choked up on his bat" and got the wrong idea.
3) They were founded in 1955 and have 40 members. A) They must not be very persuasive B) Why do they get any attention?
4) They call the Cardinals and Redsox "peacocks" but it seems to me anyone who goes to the media to tell what they are going to do, are the "attention wanting peacocks".
5) Many of the players are devout Christians. Why make enemies of fellow Christians? Shouldn't we try to unite rather than divide?
6) Of all the issues of the world, they choose to worry about what goes on behind closed bedroom doors. As with all hate groups, they blame a people different from themselves for their pathetic lives.
7) My gay friends do not spout hate but rather love. WBC does not spout love but rather hate. Which group is following Jesus' command?
8) If my family is on a sinking ship and two life boats were available, one with gays and the other with WBC members, and each only had 3 seats left. I'm sending my 3 kids with the gays where they could learn love, not hate.
9) If WBC had any good points to make, nobody would ever hear them.
10) Everyone should watch: Kevin Smith: Burn in Hell. Kevin talks about his dealing with WBC. It's hilarious.
11) Terence Mann: Ray, people will come Ray. They'll come to Iowa for reasons they can't even fathom. They'll turn up your driveway not knowing for sure why they're doing it. They'll arrive at your door as innocent as children, longing for the past. Of course, we won't mind if you look around, you'll say. It's only $20 per person. They'll pass over the money without even thinking about it: for it is money they have and peace they lack. And they'll walk out to the bleachers; sit in shirtsleeves on a perfect afternoon. They'll find they have reserved seats somewhere along one of the baselines, where they sat when they were children and cheered their heroes. And they'll watch the game and it'll be as if they dipped themselves in magic waters. The memories will be so thick they'll have to brush them away from their faces. People will come Ray. The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It has been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt and erased again. But baseball has marked the time. This field, this game: it's a part of our past, Ray. It reminds of us of all that once was good and it could be again. Oh... people will come Ray. People will most definitely come. (James Earl Jones in the Field of Dreams)
My take is this: Attention wanting hate mongers choose popular events to announce that they are going to picket. A few members show up and are drowned out and out numbered by counter-rally participants. WBC is a waste of time, a waste of space and a waste of life.
