The hideous Westboro Baptist Church
are picketing the Newtown funerals.
Their perverse logic is beyond satire

Telegraph [UK], by Tim Stanley

As night follows day, so the Westboro Baptist Church will be using a national tragedy to express its hatred of gay people. It didn’t take long after the shooting at Newtown, Connecticut for the Phelps family to send a press release from its bunker announcing that it would picket the prayer vigils and funerals of the slain children. Why? “To sing praise to God for the glory of his work in executing his judgment.” So God had 20 children killed in order to send a message about his disapproval of same-sex marriage? If this was theologically conceivable (and it’s not)

I guess they didn´t get to the part in the Commandments about taking the Lord´s name in vain. This is a slander on Christ to believe that He wants us picketing these funerals.

Between the press and now these nut cases, the families have had no peace and certainly no privacy to grieve.

Please leave these people alone. Hold on, there will be another crisis along shortly.

Here´s something I agree with the Telegraph about. These people are not Baptist and surely not Christian.

Phelps not only isn´t Baptist, he doesn´t even call himself Christian?

Link: http://eve-tushnet.blogspot.com/2005_08_01_eve-tushnet_archive.html#112474146614650981

What does Fred Phelps actually believe? It is, somehow, even weirder than you expected:

In fact, it appears that Westboro has created not just an incredibly vulgar and non-Christlike approach to homosexuality, but that it´s working on a new religion altogether, complete with new scriptures.

Members of WBC generally avoid the name "Christian" when referring to themselves, preferring the mysterious term "Tachmonite."

The Tachmonites believe Phelps is "the last prophet," with the power to determine who will be damned and who will be saved. They themselves, as followers of Phelps, also have the power to condemn souls to hell.

They´ve written their own scriptures, which are divided into two categories: "delectable epics" and "letters to heretics." The "delectable epics" (the term is the group´s) are based loosely on Acts in the New Testament. The epics detail the Tachmonites´ various protests against gays, President Bush, Elton John concerts, and the military and portray the Tachmonites alternately as invincible "super heroes" and defenseless victims of brutal rage. Some of the epics are in prose, and some in poetry.

I am not advocating crime.

Pay some professionals to follow them into town, find out where they are staying. Black ski masks, baseball bats, when its all over, they all have to be taken to the hospital. Break legs and kneecaps so they will never walk right again. Tell them the next even they stage they will be killed.

End of problem with no down side.

The article says the KKK actually counter-protested one of their military funeral protests. I never thought I´d find myself agreeing with the KKK on anything, except opposition to Obama (though not for the same reason).

WBC is not Christian. It is blasphemous.

But it´s also a Democrat operation run by an old compatriot of Al Gore. I often wonder if their sole purpose is to make more people hate Christians.

I guess I would be classified as a pragmatic agnostic, however, for years my avocation was hermeneutics and this group along with a really high percentage christians would never want their personal theology tested hermeneutically.

Most people in any religion are just followers and could never explain logically why or how their theology fits the scripture they hold in high esteem.

Example, ask any theologian that understands hermeneutics application to scripture why the phrase.......when I accepted Christ as my saviour....is actually theologically incorrect relative to scripture.

The top aide to a congresswoman in her California district sits in jail awaiting sentencing for the drunk-driving hit-and-run death of a 27-year-old woman whose parents are now suing the lawmaker, blaming her for failing to vet the staffer--who had two DUIs in 2006 and 2007, and a 2010 grand theft conviction--before she hired him. Their daughter´s killer, they say, was officially on the job the night of December 6, gladhanding in Rep. Lois Capps´ stead at a private holiday party thrown by a local newspaper. Capps, a 76-year-old Democrat, is named along with the U.S. government in a wrongful

While America’s wealthiest citizens continue to outpace their global peers, the country’s middle class has lost its long held distinction of being the most affluent in the world according to new research. Although economic growth in the United States continues to be as strong as in many other countries--or stronger--only a small percentage of American households are fully benefiting from it, according to the LIS analysis. Based on surveys conducted over the past 35 years, income across the lower--and middle-income tiers of American society has plateaued over that time, while citizens in other advanced countries have received considerably larger rises.

Vice President Joe Biden warned on Tuesday ´it´s time for Russia to stop talking and start acting´ to reduce tension in Ukraine. Standing alongside acting Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk in Kiev, Ukraine, Biden called on Moscow to encourage masked, pro-Russia separatists in eastern Ukraine to vacate illegally occupied government buildings and checkpoints, accept amnesty and ´address their grievances politically.´ ´We have been clear that more proactive behavior by Russia will lead to more costs and greater isolation,´ the Vice President said. Biden said Russia needs to act ´without delay,´ adding, ´We will not allow this to become an open-ended

Some will seize on this as proof that Americans are credulous and anti-scientific, but I´d draw the opposite conclusion. The survey--insofar as it can be taken seriously: only just over 1000 people were consulted--suggests how remarkably resilient Americans are in the face of relentless environmental brainwashing. [Snip] But according to this survey, only 33 percent are buying it--while another 37 percent remain thoroughly unconvinced. In the survey, respondents were asked how confident they were in a range of scientific statements. The ones in which they had fullest confidence were: Smoking causes cancer--82 percent extremely/very confident. Inside our cells there is a

Sean Parker, the counter-culture pioneer who founded Napster and made a fortune from Facebook, has been quietly meeting politicians and strategists in Washington DC with a view to donating cash to… the Republican party. [Snip] I think it comes down to what one entrepreneur said to me when Brendan Eich was pushed out of Mozilla: "You can offend the liberals in Silicon Valley, or the libertarians, but you can´t offend both, because everyone is one or the other". That´s the key--there´s a rich vein of libertarianism running through the Silicon Valley tech community that´s infuriated by the increasingly statist Democrats.

Thousands die of thirst
and poor care in NHS
Telegraph [UK], by Padraic Flanagan, Laura Donnelly    Original Article
Posted By: Attercliffe- 4/22/2014 7:53:38 AM     Post Reply
At least 1,000 hospital patients are dying needlessly each month from dehydration and poor care by doctors and nurses, according to an NHS study. The deaths from acute kidney injury could be prevented by simple steps such as nurses ensuring patients have enough to drink and doctors reviewing their medication, the researchers say. Between 15,000 and 40,000 patients die annually because hospital staff fail to diagnose the treatable kidney problem, a figure that dwarfs the death toll from superbugs like MRSA. The report comes less than a year after the NHS watchdog NICE was forced to issue guidelines on giving patients water

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

Dole: Cruz, Paul & Rubio

Former Sen. Bob Dole (R-Kan.) said a number of junior GOP senators considering a presidential run in 2016 do not yet have the experience — specifically naming Rand Paul (Ky.), Marco Rubio (Fla.) and Ted Cruz (Texas). The former 1996 GOP presidential candidate sounded particularly skeptical of Cruz in an interview this week with The Wichita Eagle. "A number of the younger members, first-termers like Rand Paul, Rubio and that extreme-right-wing guy, Ted Cruz — all running for president now. I don´t think they´ve got enough experience yet," Dole said. The 90-year-old former senator said, however, his main concern about 2016 is living

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning
