Christian Intolerance and Lack of Support for Troops Continues

A church group that protests at military funerals around the country will be barred from services for an American Indian soldier on a reservation, tribal officials say.

Members of the Westboro Baptist Church of Topeka, Kan., planned to demonstrate at National Guard Cpl. Nathan Goodiron's funeral on Saturday at the Fort Berthold Indian Reservation.

Church members say the deaths of soldiers are punishment from God for the country's tolerance of homosexuals.

Yes, Virginia. God is often used by narrow-minded individuals of many faiths to spread messages of hate.

However, the Bible (even the New Testament) condemns homosexuality. Certainly the actions of this group are in poor taste, are insensitive, and may even be un-American...

But are they un-Christian?

Nadir: Is this the best you can do to find some people using the bible to behave like morons? Yes, it is! And what is it that we must fear from these weirdos, who have no support outside of their tiny numbers? Ugly language at funerals. Boo hoo. If only that's all we had to fear from zealous muslims.
