V for Vile and Villainous:Westboro Bapt. Church

 

In light of my recently loss and the utter destruction of some of my beliefs, I have finally arose vivified once again. To mark this more jaded and cynical self, I wanted to speak the following.

It is, as you well know, Memorial Day. This is the time of year we honor not just our fallen soldiers, but some would say all of our dead. We pay tribute to sacrifice of the ultimate kind and bear remembrance of those faces we know, and those we shall never know for what they did for our country, our lives or our cause.

To some people they see America as an evil place. I disagree. I see it as a hopelessly lost society that needs desperately to find its way. In a country where simple human rights are denied and blatant Discrimination Laws(Tennessee) are on the books, how can this country be called anything else but lost? The truth is however, not all, or even maybe half are lost. Its those we elected to represent US in the government who are to blame for most the corruption. Too many law makers listen to Far Right or Far left extremists with deep pockets and promises of power.

Why? Oh certainly there are a plethora of reasons that rob people of their common sense and refuse them the enlightenment of understand, but truth be told, when it comes down to it, mostly its Greed and God. The following is a passage from the Westboro “Godhatesfags” website.

“WBC to picket doomed america’s worship of the dead “heros.”  We have experience with the military in this country.  They are filthy, vile, self-worshipping beasts.  All bad all the time.  It is a lie that the military of this country is filled with brave, self-sacrificing patriots.  They are incompetent cowards and bullies.  Perverts of every sort.  They fight for the perverts of this nation to murder their babies, to “marry” their fag partners, and to commit whoredoms & abominations of every kind.  The Lord no longer builds the american house: nor does the Lord watch over and protect America.  (Psalm 127:1)  The soldiers are dying for the sins of this nation.  You have made God your enemy and He, Himself is fighting america.”

Sadly, that statement actually makes sense some how in their head. To call the Military “all bad, all the time” is arrogant and shows a blatant ignorance or sheer stupidity on their part. World War 1 and World War 2 are prime examples of the heroism and righteous glory of our Military during those conflicts. Westboro wouldn’t even exist had Germany had their way. Or, later on through history we may all be speaking Russion.

Self worshiping? I guess I missed the Golden Idol made out of General Petraeus or Patton or General George Washington. I mean sure, the Washington Memorial is pretty big and looks kinda phallic but I’ve never seen masses bowing down and chanting before it. And Beasts? Really? Well, I do admit we have our elites but if we were such monsters why would our men come back scarred and mentally ill from what they had seen. Anyway, didn’t you hear that gays are in the military? I think the “Beastly” gays before to be called “Bears” if I’m not mistaken…:-)

I agree that this country has fallen from its founding principals of “In God We Trust”. People forget that simple phrase is our founding principal and HISTORY. Its marked in our our own Supreme Court. Prayers are said in congress. Oh, and let us not forget “O yea O yea, court is now in session. The Honorable <………..> presiding. All ye having business before this court step forward and ye shall be heard. GOD SAVE THIS HONORABLE COURT. The whole reason we are able to even fight for equal rights and obtain them is because our founding fathers believed God made every man equal. This was of course later refined as time went on and expanded those rights to minorities. This is our history, for right or for wrong.

They go on to say our military fights so we can murder babies(Abortion) and “Fags” can marry each other. Well, clearly they aren’t keeping up with how things are. The Federal Government(Who runs the military) won’t even give us ENDA, let alone the right to marry. Further, I take offense to their exclusion. Its not just Fags who want to marry. Us Trannies, Dykes, Butches, Lesbo’s, Bears, Queers, etc would like a shot too.

Hey Westboro, you’re talking to the community who took the up side down pink Triangle, a symbol HITLER gave to the LGBT’s and turned it into a sign of hope, pride and honor. You can see one below. Do you really think after years of persecution we give two cents about what some Hillbilly, white trailer trash, honky who needs to learn what SHAMPOO is(Serious, take a look at videos of their main gal who runs this thing looks like) calls us? I mean damn, I LOATHE the term “Tranny” but if I heard it from you, I may not be able to maintain bladder control from my laughter. Consider the source, amiright? I mean I’m White(Nordic, Irish, English) and I’ll say those things about them. Let the Truth set you free.

Finally, we come to their reference in Psalms which of course relates to “Songs of Solomon”. They refer to the verse about “If you do not build your house with God, you build it in vain”. Now, this I kinda sorta get their point. People of the faith SHOULD build there homes with God. But there are many people out there who share different beliefs. God tells me not to judge because I don’t know the whole story, so fine, I won’t. But I have long disliked people quoting Psalms like its actual scripture from the Lord. They’re songs to praise Him, not teachings such as the rest of the Bible. I might as well quote Travis Tritt in reference to Westboro. “Here’s a quarter, call someone who cares.” or, for those of us who conduct anti protests against Westboro we could refer to good ol’ Willy Nelson and Toby Keith: “We’ll raise up our glasses against evil forces singin’ Whiskey for my men, beer for my Horses!”.

I think I spent about all the time I am willing to on this group. However, since I knew they would be out in force today it seemed just right to mention them and pay homage to their severe lack of knowledge of the Bible or to make any kind of rational sense at all.

I would like to personally thank all the Men and Women who have died to protect our rights and those rights that will be coming shortly. I would like to apologize on behalf of our government(Since they sure as hell won’t) to those service members who died hiding who they were just so they could keep their jobs and\or follow the calling of patriotism, or get educated.

I need to take this time and pray the underlining message of this Day is not lost. Our soldiers, Police, Firemen, and respected others did not die for a few of us or even most of us. They died defending all of us, their friends, their families and a country\community they love. Don’t dishonor their memory by continuing policies that that deny all Americans equal rights or the Supreme Court endorsement that Marriage is a fundamental right for all Americans.

Stop repeating History. Too many Black men died for a country that treated them “less than” not too long ago. Their blood was good enough to spill in the name of freedom on the battlefield, but they, as a people, were not worthy to drink or eat in the same places others were. They were not allowed to Marry who they wanted and so many people died and our great land forever tarnished by the battle for their rights. Black, White, Asian, Hispanic, Gay, Straight, Trans….we are all people. Give us ALL our rights and remember these words:

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.” – US Constitution

“All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.
