    Oh my fucking god!
    Who the hell do they think they are? Seriously, these people need to be put down. If I wouldn't go to jail for it, I would be happy too... This group is seriously starting to piss me off.

    What are their reasons? Brokeback Mountain?

    You need to find a different hobby instead of trolling around the internet looking for a reason to hate religion. Who is the Westboro Baptist Church? Maybe about a half dozen kooks?

    Wow, that is insane. Where do they get off thinking they have the right to judge a person's soul? If Heath is, as they say, going to hell for his part in Brokeback, it's not their decision. Ultimately, if they are following their religion so strongly, there is no authority higher than God. Defying that authority by taking the decision into their own hands, is an even greater sin than the one they're accusing Heath of.

    Funny how the brain of an idiot works, isn't it?

    They'll get as much recogniton for positive feedback as the KKK would at Martin Luther King Jrs funeral.

    Absolute absurd for them to say that about him. It just goes to show how 'forgiving' some Christians can be.

    But the Bible teaches that God is the ultimate authority, and that defying God's authority is the ultimate sin. So assuming to be the judge of God's will and the executer of his authority is a sin worse than the sin being judged.

    If they are following the Bible as closely as you say, then they are damming themselves above the supposed damnation of Heath.

    So they're either idiots, or they're not following the Bible...Although I guess the two kinda go hand in hand at that point, lol.

    We mustn't forget that the bible contradicts itself on several points^^

    Doesn't it say somewhere that you're supposed to give out the message and at least warn people?

    Yeah, but warning is a bit different than assuming the responsibility of God.

    Not to mention that a soul is an aspect that isn't really controllable by us mortals, so I doubt the argument that "God told us to do it" would work either.

    But anyway, are we all in aggreeance that this group is bonkers? It would be interesting if some OTHER group came out and condemned them...then we could sit back and watch the fireworks...(again)...
