Reports indicate that Westboro Baptist Church plans to picket “Fast & Furious” star, Paul Walker’s upcoming funeral.
This church claims to be a Christian organization acting on God’s behalf. Well maybe they are! The Bible speaks of two gods in particular. The God of Abraham and the god of this world (AKA-the Devil). The God of Abraham is full of love, mercy, grace, and forgiveness. The Westboro god is full of hate, unforgiveness and spitefulness.
Whenever I write about crackpot atheists or left-wing, progressive freaks I get a boatload of emails telling me you can’t lump them all together. Really? Then don’t lump all Christians together!
Mr. Walker was recently killed in a car crash near my home. The local media, including my anchor station (KHTS – Los Angeles), have been covering his tragic death.
