What a happy camper this Christian TV reporter has become, now that she's discovered the YouTube Trends Dashboard, in all its multi-city selecting glory. That's how I found this video titled "Westboro Baptist Church Get Really Pissed Off by Brick Stone" that has swelled to nearly a quarter of a million views in less than 48 hours.
Super-saints, beware, there might be a foul word or two uttered therein, but it's entertaining enough that I watched the whole thing and gave it a thumbs-up like.
Once again, Christians like me cringe over the fact that "church" is anywhere in the name of this group of people who spew Scripture viciously. That is not of God, especially the theology contained in the video whereby Margie Phelps, the daughter of leader Fred Waldron Phelps, Sr., claims that even 3-day-old babies who die go to hell.
The Lord is about love. Just take a gander at John 3:16 and personalize it to get a revelation of God's love for you by inserting your name therein, similar to what Pastor Joseph Prince of New Creation Church (an excellent pastor) suggests we do in his book, Unmerited Favor:
For God so loved [say your name here] that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.
Brick Stone positively owns the group as his quips go right over their heads and hateful signs, charging them with being the type of in-the-closet sinners that feel the need to draw up big signs and yell at people, instead of facing their own demons and vulnerabilities and drama.
The truth always makes for a better story, if we're honest enough to admit it.
Let's pray the world at large understands that Westboro doesn't represent Christ at all.
