Apparently Westboro Baptist Church is at it again
From Christianity Today:
Controversial Westboro Baptist Church organisation, known for their “God Hates Fags” slogan, has announced they will picket the funeral of Robin Williams.
The actor, whose death on Monday shocked the world, portrayed a gay man in the 1996 film The Birdcage and cross-dressed in hit comedy Mrs. Doubtfire, roles which led the Topeka-based church to claim Williams made “merchandise of filthy proud sin”.
Of all the Hollywood actors and producers you might want to protest at or even consign to hell, Robin Williams would have to be one of the least likely. I’m not saying he was born again or anything like that, but really guys, pick your battles.
I’m not going to judge the organisation except to say this: Westboro Baptist Church does not represent real christian belief or action. They need to get over all the hate preaching and start showing Jesus who was a friend of sinners, so much so that he died to set them free from their sin.
