A seven year old boy on the television program 20/20 said
"Gays, Fags and hundreds and hundreds of Jews go to hell."
A child growing into his father over coat
Taught to preach hatred
Hatred towards anyone not affiliated with their church
Children coached to demonstrate at soldiers funerals
Families who gather with colorful signs thanking God for the troups deaths
Soldiers who died for them
Who gave their life to this country
Children brainwashed to think that military people are nasty and let their children be raped
Yet this church lets their young stand in street in the middle of violence
Antagonising bystanders until they can no longer stay peaceful.
They sing songs called "God Hates Jews" and "God Hates the World"
I lose faith in humanity when i hear these cry's
Everyone is different
If we all were the same the world would have no flavor, no color
I question myself daily
Who am i?
Who do i like?
Where am i from?
What do I want from this Godforsaken land?
My own father is Jewish and he is the most caring man on this earth
The fact that this group of people can say that you go to hell based on who you are
And not what you do for this world is distressing.
Being who I am a homosexual young women with Jewish blood pulsing through my veins
I am terrified of the way this church thinks.
A religion that attacks every other religion besides their own.
Even though I don't think of myself as religious
i though that God loved all but i guess I've got it twisted
Because i cant begin to comprehend this ****.

I watched a very disturbing video about the Westboro Baptist Church that made me feel the need to write about it.
