Westboro

While in DC, I was surprised to find actual members of the Westboro Baptist Church across from my hotel, practicing their peculiar ministry. They normally picket events like funerals; I do not know what in particular they were protesting here.

Everyone knows about their tagline “God Hates Fags,” but I did not know about their anti-Jewish/anti-Zionist animus. This is in contrast to the pro-Zionist dispensationalism prevalent in American Evangelical circles (although note that they believe that 144,000 Jews will be saved, per Revelation 7).

Seems they hate everyone! (As a friend said, wouldn’t it just be easier to list the things they don’t hate?)
