How WBC Fails: God H8's 7/19

The Westboro Baptist Church (or WBC) is an Independent Baptist “church” known for its extreme stance against homosexuality, other religions, and anything else that tickles their fancy. They are also known for their greatly offensive protest activities against fallen service men/woman and high profile aka popular people. In this special section, we will explore their hateful and distorted “divine” teachings and expose them for what they truly are, a hate group who uses religion for personal power.

Part: 7/19
Name: God loves everybody - Pt 7 of WBC's GOD H8S vid -
Update: Videos have been removed. Blog now shows video of all of them combined. 

Bible verses mentioned:
Mk. 9:44: 'where their worm doesn't die, and the fire is not quenched.'
Rom 9:13: As it is written, Jacob have I loved, but Esau have I hated.
Matt 13: 49-50: This is how it will be at the end of the age. The angels will come and separate the wicked from the righteous  and throw them into the blazing furnace, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

So I’ve been sitting here for the past two hours getting no where fast. I would normally blame this on the awesome programming afforded to me by the History Channel,  but well… ok it’s the evils of History channel. DAMN YOU CABLE TELEVISION! I’m watching a really interesting show about Stonehenge, it details the long history of the stone construction as well as it's many secrets and supposed uses. During the various ads for this weight loss program or some new “As seen on tv” thing, I try to think up insightful and witty opening for this rebuking paper. Cause you know I'm sooooooo witty. Every time I think I get something, I stop and think about the poor smuck in this video. In every previous and future installments of the ever bias and baseless God H8’s series, there is always a tiny description box on the bottom right hand side giving the title and whom from the cult was featured. In today’s display we have “A WBC member answers the common misconception God loves everybody. Pt 7 of WBC's GOD H8S vid”. It’s the whole bleeding surrounding cities of Sodom and Gomorrah again! Fear not random WBC cult member, while you are not important enough to have a name, you can still be called out for telling fibs :-)

Plus now that I think about it, didn't we already address this God love everyone thing? Eh fine what ever....

What he said: "God loves everyone is the greatest lie ever told, you will never find thous words in the bible."

Stupid people make cat's head hurt.

Opening with a Parody of American idiot (which is fitting somehow for them), random wbc member wastes little time completely invaliding the whole videos argument. Within the first twenty seconds of this gross display of hate and lunacy, random dood tells us that the whole “god loves everybody” is an evil satanic lie that you will find no where in the bible.  Not one verse they proclaim!

Oh really?

Take a moment if you will, to remember back to your childhood. It was a time when the grass was greener everywhere, and your biggest worry was what kind of fun to plan that day. Do you remember screwing around with your friends and kids from the block? Well I don’t cause I was busy with far more important things, like saving the stupid princess from another frigging castle. Sometimes you might have silly little contests, go “exploring” or maybe even get together and play a baseball game. America’s pass time HOOOOOO! What would usually happen is each kid would own their own glove, while another kid would own the bat and ball. Everyone would split into teams and play for a bit, having a super awesome special time. This could go on for hours and hours, or until something silly would happen. A scraped knee, a stupid kid argument, a misplaced comment, what ever it was the kid who owned the bat/ball would whine and cry to get their way.  When the kid wouldn’t get their way, they grab the bat/ball and hurry off home, leaving everyone else out of luck. If they where extra bitter, they might even throw out a few insults before leaving. Does this remind you of anything? This is what the above statement by random WBCult member man reminded me off. Ever since being disbarred, disproved, dis-everybloodthingunderthesun, they have adopted the message “nah nah nah! Only we are going to heaven, so take that!” Real adult behavior there let me tell you.  

But let us not lose sight of the before mentioned statement, is what random WBCult member man says true? Being far from any type of biblical scholar or expert, I rely heavily on the internet and use of my mother’s bible when doing research. Imagine my surprise when I came up with the following in under ten seconds;
  • For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life (John 3:16). Last time I check, the world had everyone in it…
  •   But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions—it is by grace you have been saved (Ephesians 2:4-5). Loved us not just some disbarred lawyer and his brainwashed family.
  • The LORD your God is with you, he is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you, he will quiet you with his love, he will rejoice over you with singing (Zephaniah 3:17). And we find his love is not only attached so some smuck, it’s attached to ALL!
  • Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword? As it is written: "For your sake we face death all day long; we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered." No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord (Romans 8:35-39). DIDJA SEE THAT! Nothing can separate us from the love of God.
  • Christ loved us and gave himself up for us as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God (Ephesians 5:2). Again for US, not just for this or that person.
  • his is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him. This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins (1 John 4:9-10). We see here and pure and simple text that God loved us so much he did this, not from anything on our end.
  • Your love, O LORD, reaches to the heavens, your faithfulness to the skies. Your righteousness is like the mighty mountains, your justice like the great deep. O LORD, you preserve both man and beast. How priceless is your unfailing love! Both high and low among men find refuge in the shadow of your wings.” (Psalm 36:5 -7) I am well aware it says men here, but I’ll refer you to a previous entry to explain that. Anywho we see again how love and forgiveness is extended to all.
  •   “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” (Jeremiah 29:11) to do no harm….
  •  “Can a mother forget her nursing child? Can she feel no love for the child she has borne? But even if that were possible, I would not forget you! See, I have written your name on the palms of my hands.” (Isaiah 49:15-16) This one is pretty self explanatory.
  • “But when the kindness and love of God our Savior appeared, he saved us, not because of righteous things we had done, but because of his mercy. He saved us through the washing of rebirth and renewal by the Holy Spirit.” (Titus 3: 4-5) Saved us, not just the WBC or like minded buffoons, but EVERYONE!
I wonder how the nameless WBC dood could make such a bold statement like he did when all it took me was five seconds on Google to prove him wrong. Clearly from just the above, there is more than one instance of God loving humanity. Did they really believe no one would check their facts? This either screams of utter incompetence or sheer unwarranted ego. If I had to hazard a guess, I would say it was probably both. What of the other statements made by random WBCult member man?

What he said: "This is a satanic lie that is meant to convince you there is no accountability for your sins. But there is accountability for your sin. If you max our your credit cards, you eventually have to pay the bill. You pay this bill (your sins) when you're dead."

Seriously, the WBC lecturing on accountability?
Keep in mind, while I am Pagan in nature (lol pun) I was raised in what could be called a bible thumper household. I went to a school where bible was shoved down your throat, and if you couldn’t recite it from memory you where told you had a one way ticket to hell (I always managed to barely pass “religious studies” class). During all of this excessive display of a single faith, not once have I ever heard this crazy statement by the WBC before. In fact, the bible teaches while God loves everyone, he also teaches responsibility and accountability for your actions. God teaches from the bible (and this is paraphrased) “Listen humanity, I know you’re not perfect. You’re going to sin, and probably sin a lot… and I’m kinda cool with that. I didn’t make you perfect for a reason. Now if you’re all repentant and such, I’ll still let you into my killer pad, but if you side with that jerk Satan, will then I hope you like fire and brimstone”.

If you're looking for some biblical verses, well here you go dood!

Bible Verses, Quotes & Scriptures About Accountability To Each Other

  • 1 Thessalonians 5:11: “Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing.”
  • Ephesians 4:25: “Therefore, laying aside falsehood, speak truth, each one of you, with his neighbor, for we are members of one another.”
  • Colossians 3:16: “Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom, and as you sing psalms, hymns and spiritual songs with gratitude in your hearts to God.”
  • James 5:16 “Therefore, confess your sins to one another, and pray for one another so that you may be healed. The effective prayer of a righteous man can accomplish much.”
  • Proverbs 24:24-25“He who says to the wicked, “You are righteous,” Him the people will curse; Nations will abhor him. But those who rebuke the wicked will have delight, And a good blessing will come upon them.”
  • Proverbs 12:15 “The way of a fool is right in his own eyes, but a wise man is he who listens to counsel.”

Bible Verses, Quotes & Scriptures About Being Accountable To God

  • Romans 14:11: “For we shall all stand before the judgment seat of Christ. For it is written: “ As I live, says the LORD, Every knee shall bow to Me,And every tongue shall confess to God.”
  • Ezekiel 3:18-19: “When I say to a wicked man, ‘You will surely die,’ and you do not warn him or speak out to dissuade him from his evil ways in order to save his life, that wicked man will die for his sin, and I will hold you accountable for his blood. But if you do warn the wicked man and he does not turn from his wickedness or from his evil ways, he will die for his sin; but you will have saved yourself.”
  • Romans 14:12: “So then every one of us shall give account of himself to God.”

Age of Accountability In The Bible
  • Psalm 51:5 “Behold, I was shapen in iniquity; and in sin did my mother conceive me.”
  • 1 John 2:2 “And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world.”
  • 2 Samuel 12:21-23 “Then said his servants unto him, What thing is this that thou hast done? thou didst fast and weep for the child, while it was alive; but when the child was dead, thou didst rise and eat bread. And he said, While the child was yet alive, I fasted and wept: for I said, Who can tell whether GOD will be gracious to me, that the child may live? But now he is dead, wherefore should I fast? can I bring him back again? I shall go to him, but he shall not return to me.”

But what of the persons who says “God loves me no matter what, so to hell with morals!” These people are also usually the ones who believe in being elect, or God has already chosen you to ascend to heaven.  In this entry I’ve already explained how being elect means jack and not biblical supported, so I will not bore you again with the same argument.  Also if you think your actions will have no reaction, well then you’re just a bleeding idiot. 

Oh and one more quick side note. Random WBC dood's argument about our sins liken to credit card debit really doesn't hold that much weight when you have Shirley saying "God forgave me for my sin" over and over again. What works for one, works for all kido.

What he said: "Did God love the (victims from x disaster)"

To conclude the video, cause Planet Earth is on now and that’s my thing, I will make one final points. Random WBCult member man goes on to say that God did not love the people who where victims of various recent natural disasters the WBC used for media attention.

Blah blah blah…
Time and time again we see the WBC make claims in the most offensive way possible.  They use force and imagery to garner attention to their twisted cause. Today we saw random WBCult member man first say the bible does not contain a verse about God loving everyone. This was disproved. Then we see this “god loves everyone” idea as an excuse to not take responsibility.  This was just a stupid statement to make and also easily disproved. Finally we see their typical use of offensive language.  They see every high media negative event that occurs as an action of a vengeful god. As a source for their attention drug. 

So what is the WBC?
Are they the elect servants of a god?
OR just the kid crying and threatening to take his bat away until they gets their way?

See you all next time!

P.S: Hey I think this is my shortest rebuking yet! WHOO HOOOO!


  1. Hank, I must commend you on your insightful blog.For a non-Christian you are well versed in our Scriptures.Also from a Christian please accept my apology on behalf of the WBC. They do not speak for all Christians and they are not following the teachings of Our Lord. Peace unto you. Rich

  2. Hello there Rich!

    First allow me to say that you have nothing to apologize for. In this great world we live in, we have people who actually understand religion and try to live as best they can. Then we have the idiots who will twist, corrupt, and pollute anything in the name of personal power (while under the guide of religion). It's sickening really. But thanks for the kind words, its always nice to see people reading and liking me blog!

  3. Updated and cleaned up!
    ~Also added a link about the natural disasters being far less deadly than ever before.
