A Portrait in Christian Extremism: Fred Phelps Thanks God for Tucson Shootings, Prays for More Violence

Fred PhelpsIn a sermon that was void of any compassion or sympathy for those who suffered from this weekend's shooting spree in Tucson, Fred Phelps, the patriarch of the Westboro Baptist Church, praised God for the deaths of Judge Roll and five others, and proclaimed that the Westboro Baptist Church will picket the funerals and pray for more deaths and killings.

Phelps characterized the murders as God avenging various actions against the Westboro Baptist Church and called Jared Loughner "a veteran from Afghanistan." According to CNN, Loughner tried to enlist the Army but was rejected.

In his sermon to his flock, which is mostly family members, Phelps said:

Thank God for the violent shooter, one of your soldier heroes in Tucson. God appointed the Afghanistan veteran to avenge Himself on this evil nation. However many are dead, Westboro Baptist Church will picket their funerals. We will remind the living that you can still repent and obey. This is ultimatum time with God. Except you repent, you shall all likewise perish. Luke 13:3.

This nation unleashed criminal, violent veterans on Westboro Baptist Church for telling you to obey God. He told you at your soldier's funerals that they are dying for your sin. You hate those words and you will not stop sinning.

So you sent violent veterans, so-called patriot guard riders to attack and try to silence the Westboro Baptist Church. Then you sent violent crippled veteran Ryan Newell with 90 rounds of ammunition planning to shoot five Westboro Baptist Church members while picketing.

God restrained the hand of them all, then he turned the violent veteran on you. 22-year-old Jared Lee Loughner opened fire outside a Tucson, Arizona grocery store shooting Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, Federal Judge John M. Roll and 16 others. At least 6 are dead and counting.

Congress passed 3 laws against Westboro Baptist Church. Congresswoman Giffords, an avid supporter of sin and baby killing, was shot for that mischief.

A federal judge in Baltimore, part of the massive military community in Maryland and in the District of Columbia, put Westboro Baptist Church on trial for faithful words from God. Federal Judge Roll paid for those sins with his life today.

Mouthy witch Sara Palin had Representative Giffords on a crosshairs on her website. She quickly took it down, however, because she's a cowardly brute like the rest of you. The crosshairs to worry about are God's, and He's put you in His, and your destruction is upon you. You should have obeyed. This nation of violent murderers is in full rebellion against God.

God avenged Himself on you today by a marvelous work in Tucson. He sits in the heavens and laughs at you in your affliction. Westboro Baptist Church prays for more shooters, more violent veterans and more dead. Praise God for his righteous judgment in this earth. Amen.

    I know that one should never wish death upon another human being. I know this and yet I feel terrible rage whenever I read about something that this man has said or done. I wish that at some point he'll realize that God never gave him the right to judge God's children and thathe's causing great sadness, anger, and stress by his actions
