Contraversial Protestant Baptist Group To Picket The Jesuit Creighton Prep And University Feb 10th, 2010

Good Jesuit, Bad Jesuit has posted this article about our old friends at WBC Topeka Kansas...

A Kansas church says it will be picketing a Catholic high school and college in Omaha. Westboro Baptist Church in Topeka, Kan., says it will set up pickets Wednesday at Creighton Preparatory School and at Creighton University, a Jesuit college.

The church is known for protesting at military funerals to express the belief that U.S. troop deaths are punishment for the nation's tolerance of homosexuality. Speaking for the church, Shirley Phelps-Roper said Monday that the protests will mark cases against Catholic priests who sexually abused children. more

Wiki reports that "Fred Phelps the founder of Westboro Baptist Church has run in various Kansas Democratic Party primaries five times, but has never won. These included races for governor in 1990, 1994, and 1998, receiving about 15 percent of the vote in 1998. In the 1992 Democratic Party primary for U.S. Senate, Phelps received 31 percent of the vote. Phelps ran for mayor of Topeka in 1993 and 1997."

A couple of things to say here, 1. These are not Baptists. 2. This is persecution. 3. The Church thrives on persecution. 4. Thanks.

It is unfortunate to say but this type of thinking is prevelent by other eclesiatic communities who while not actually doing the stoning are holding the clothes of the ones who do.

Thanks Joseph!

The WBC has read my blog the last time I mentioned them, but has failed to comment.
