No religious group, claiming to be based around fundamental Christian ideals, is more detrimental or despicable than the Westboro Baptist Church. Centered in Topeka, Kansas, this religious group has been in the media actively for the last couple of years due to their outright, offensive stances on controversial issues like homosexuality and military funeral processions.
The group has gone too far this time. Another group of innocent people have become targets for their cruelty: the unfortunate residents of the town of Joplin, Missouri. After the town faced destruction and terror from a tornado, a member of the church posted, 'Thank God for 125 dead in Joplin' on the churches infamous hate website, GodHatesFags.com.
Although inexcusable, negative opinions on homosexuality and the military are acceptably expressed in the public forum. Natural disasters, however, and the hundreds of lives that claim are out of bounds for negative feedback such as this. A town is morning the loss of over 100 of its citizens, and a member of this church actually has the audacity to post positive feedback on the disaster on the internet. These people should be ashamed of their actions. True Christians would make it a point to help the people affected by the tragedy, not cause more grief and pain.
