What kind of Christians are those that picket at gay funerals besides the Westboro Baptist church, whats up with those bros and why funerals?

'Westboro Baptist Church (WBC) is an American church known for its use of inflammatory hate speech, especially against LGBT+ people, Catholics, Orthodox Christians, atheists, Muslims, Jews, and U.S. soldiers and politicians.[4][5] Multiple sources describe it as a hate group[6] and the WBC is monitored as such by the Anti-Defamation League and the Southern Poverty Law Center. The church has been involved in actions against gay people since at least 1991, when it sought a crackdown on homosexual activity at Gage Park six blocks northwest of the church.'

    People such as the members of the Westboro church is why countries like Canada and the UK have hate speech laws. They can preach their evil hate in their church, but not in a public forum.

    The Westboro Baptist Church tries to provoke people, so they can sue them for "violating their civil rights" and get money. That's why the founder was a lawyer, and forced his kids to become lawyers.Β

  • There are so many extremist religious freaks out there.

    Those hate mongering big mouths come from many different extremist cults.

    Some cults like to keep their hate on the DL.

    They are all being outed through the internet.

    Here's one of the jehovah's witnesses cult leaders speaking about homosexuals.

    WBC is an embarrassment to all true Christians.

    It should be illegal to picket or protest at a funeral. No true Christian would do that.

    It seems WBC are a bunch of lawyers who use Christian cover to annoy people, and then sue them. Basically they are greedy capitalists and false prophets using religion to make money and annoy people, rather than seeking to bring people to God's love in Christ.

    "Funding

    WBC's travel expenses exceed $200,000 annually.[281] According to the Southern Poverty Law Center, Westboro is funded entirely by its congregation and accepts no outside donations.[282] The church has received money from lawsuits and legal fees.[282][283] For example, they sued the city of Topeka several times in the 1990s.[282] WBC received $16,500, and is pursuing another $100,000, in legal fees for a case won in court.[283] The WBC is considered a nonprofit organization by the federal government, and is therefore exempt from paying taxes.[284]

    According to the Louis Theroux documentary The Most Hated Family in America, members of the Phelps family are expected to have regular jobs and give ten percent of their earnings to the church, and many of them are lawyers. "
