The Most Hated Family in America is a TV documentary written and presented by the BBC’s Louis Theroux about the family at the heart of the Westboro Baptist Church.

At the heart of the documentary is the Westboro Baptist Church (WBC), headed by Fred Phelps and based in Topeka, Kansas. It runs the website GodHatesFags.com,[1] and GodHatesAmerica.com, and other websites expressing condemnation of LGBT, Roman Catholics, Muslims, Jews, Sweden, Ireland, Canada, The Netherlands, and other groups. The organization is monitored by the Anti-Defamation League,[2] and classified as a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center.[3][4] The group has achieved national notice because of its picketing of funeral processions of U.S. soldiers killed in action in Iraq and Afghanistan.

The church bases its work around the belief expressed by its best known slogan and the address of its primary website, “God hates fags”, and expresses the opinion, based on its Biblical interpretation, that nearly every tragedy in the world is God’s punishment for homosexuality – specifically society’s increasing tolerance and acceptance of gay, lesbian, and bisexual people. It maintains that God hates homosexuals above all other kinds of “sinners”[5] and that homosexuality should be a capital crime.[6]

Louis Theroux stated that the Phelpses are the most extreme people he has ever met.[7]

    At 16 minutes that poor girl seems so upset and trying to justify why she’ll never get married. Poor thing, she must feel so trapped. This is a weird cult.

    • Gavethesense

      Another cult,we all know whats going to happen to this group.These small cults usually end in death,for the men,women and children.I wonder why they single out one sin when all sin is an abomination to God.We all sin.Which sin will send them to hell?According to Scripture,you only need one,thats why we need Christ to cover our sins.In the interview one woman was laughing about the journalist possibly going to hell.I cant find anywhere in Scripture where Jesus was happy to see people suffering and being sent to hell.Hatred is sin too.

        The family seem as though they have been brainwashed. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion but why do they assume that everyone wants to know. It is sad to think that the young from this family will not be able to make their own decisions, hopefully maybe the children’s school teachers or another child will interact and give these children a glimpse of a ‘normal’ life.

    I laugh because these people call themselves christian. Haha! They’ve created some cult and they brainwash and make their children believe that their opinions (YES opinions) are fact. But these dumbass’ are so brainwashed, they think they are correct. suck it westboro family. If people like you are in heaven, then DAMN I’d prefer hell..

  • Kaitlin

    This was absolutely fascinating. It’s so sad, but so interesting.

  • Chandler

    I just love how a Lady Gaga advertisement, practically an idol of the gay community, was on this page the whole while I watched this video…

    It’s sad, it really is. What gets me are the kids. They don’t even know what they’re preaching, they’ve just been sucked into it by their intolerant family. The pastor also bugged me, he never gave straight answers to any questions. Just “you’re stupid” and such, which does not help his argument at all.

    Oh well. I’m pretty sure, if there is a God, he is laughing at these people from Heaven. And if I do go to Hell because of what I believe, I’ll be fine with an eternity of suffering, because at least I won’t have to deal with the Westburo Church anymore.

    what really shook me was the kids…they are brainwashed into believing this garbage, they dont know what they are saying…they repeat the message as if it was a word they overheard while at school…i feel for them because it must suck to be told to believe in something or else you will burn in hell

    Its quite pathetic how they’re so busy worrying about heaven or hell that they can’t live a full life. The girls even know that, theyre so busy picketing and spreading hate that they’ll never get married, find love, and have a family. They’re all brainwashed and trapped in this crazy cult they call religion. I thought God couldn’t hate?

  • Alyssa

    Also, if you hate the USA so much, MOVE. We’d rather not have to deal with your shit.

    • SMD

      Move where? No other country would accept them. Anyway, why should another country be expected to take your twisted bigots?

      There are Americans so let America deal with them.

      • Yep

        yeah, because no other country has its extremists, racists, or bigots. get real. i think these people suck just as much as the next guy, but, face it, there are crazy people all over the world. this isnt just an american thing. i’m sure there are plenty of places where they’d fit in better than here.

        • YepYep

          “Get real” .. No you get real. The point that others have been making is this fucked up family are American and an American problem. Don;t expect other countries to take your fuck ups. And this has already happened and the UK banned one of they family from visiting.

          “i’m sure there are plenty of places where they’d fit in better than here.” You may be sure but you are wrong.

          • Oscar

    I was not able to watch this even the first 9 minutes. This is so ridiculous! To hate people pecause they’re different. Now, i was not able to see the other reports of this familiy and i have do admit that i don’t want to see more of them. Especialy of the mother. I belong to a nation, which killed millions of jews because they were different, and they belong to an other god. They said that the jews were the evil for my nation and all of you know what happend. It came as it came because we didn’t see how far it will us take as we started to hate them. Please stop this familiy! Madnes has many masks and sometimes it’s the mask of god. Please stop this familiy! YOU HAVE THE MEANS.

    And those poor troops of you didn’t die because they fougth for gays, it’s because some other idiot’s from an other religion told their people the same shit. “They’re different, they don’t belong here! Allah want’s their death!”. This world could be better. -Nothing against religion, it’s just nothing for me. And the moslems i personaly know are cool.

    These people are repulsive, but pathetically sad at the same time. What stood out to me most about the whole video is how none of them seemed to have any original thought. They consistently repeated the same rhetoric that had been drilled into them. Very sad.

  • Alex

    this is rediculous. i have some people in my family who are gay, and lesbian and they are amazing and loved by everyone i know. i fucking hate this family and can’t understand why they can’t keep their opinions to themselfs. yes, in the future i’d love to get married and start a family, but no way am i going to hell. ever.this is crazy and i totally understand why they are the most hated family in america. fuck their lives. i would love to run over them with a car.

  • PashaDolce

    I agree, this was very fascinating and i do remember seeing them on the news a few months back at a funeral for a fallen. After five minutes into this my initial reaction was, ‘these people need to be shot’, but then i thought that was a little too ungodly.

  • mitch

    Can we let charlie manson out and have his cult kill this cult.

  • Melanie

    How sad. I was a little relieved to be honest, to find out that the cult was mostly confined to one family. With all their hate preaching and horrible ignorant judgment, their own rules seem to be stopping them from connecting with any other people. With a mother strickly against dating and ‘fornicating’, and girls who do not imagine a life with any relationships or marriage, as the front runners of the future for this cult, I can’t see it progressing very far. No new comers, and no children. Hopefully this family will run it’s sad course and it will be done with. I do feel terrible for the children and teenage girls but if they are so set in their ways, what can you do. Best to just wait them out from what I can gather.

      • Lane

        It shouldn’t be about the family moving to one country versus living in another. The problem lies within their hatred. And the U.S. does protect freedom of speech; however while protecting freedom of speech is good, sometimes it has adverse effects. The biggest problem that I have with this church is protesting at the funerals. Whether one agrees with the war or not, and/or the political messages related to it, everyone should have the right to burying, remember, or celebrate the lives of those who pass. Death is something that should be universally respected.

  • axzuni

    Unfortunately these kids and teenagers will realize the foundation of hate and fear that was implanted in their hearts, will barricade them forever from the true beauty that lies out there, the wonderful feeling of loving and feeling what love is. There was absolutely no affection seen from the parent to the older kids, just commands and watchful comments. The young girls are so lonely among each other, they are so sheltered and little do they realize the hate and chaos lies right within them. Too sad, great documentary and very stimulating.

He actually helps, does Phelps, in his own characteristic way, to make us alll put a check on any bigoted, intolerant, hateful instinct we may have brewing in all of us, including en mass and in governance. I hope he finds peace within himself…it’s there to be had as in all of us.

  • Mike

    The last six minutes were the most powerful part of the documentary. Seeing the poor girl trying to justify the values that were brainwashed upon her was saddening. You can tell by the way she acts that Louie was getting to her. She tries so hard to suppress her basic human desires and instincts that it is slowly eating her up from the inside. She smiles so much that I think it is really her putting on a front consciously or unconsciously. Every other adult interviewee gave the impression that they know they are preaching the truth, and I don’t get that from her. She’s a tragic victim of her families beliefs just like the other kids. These people are to be pitied, not hated.

  • kaytelan

    Few things are as shocking as the rhetoric the senior members of this church preach, to me this is as dificult to understand as quantum physics. Almost like my mind refuses to believe that these people actually picket funerals and truly feel deep inside that what they are doing is good and the right way to spread the word of god. What happens when their pastor does not live as long as other “prophets”, was he struck down by God? or when someone who has never sinned gets cancer? I am truly baffled.
    Couldn’t social services be called on these parents who endanger their children by allowing them to picket, in a sense exposing innocents to the ridicule and violence of the public? As clearly depicted in the film? Aside from physical harm any lawyer could argue in court that these people are mentally abusing their small children.
    Food for thought, does anyone out there think Shirly likes it doggie style? Bet she does.

    • Wanderer Zero

      Even if social services could be called, that would be a horrible approach to dealing with issues like this. Since people have many different backgrounds and types of issues to deal with, the best thing is probably just put ideal or seemingly truthful information out there and let people decide for themselves what they want and how they’d like to live.

  • ash

    I bet in 20 years we’ll find out that the nasty old preacher got dumped by his boyfriend and now spreads this shit. Or he purposely wants all the girls to stay single so he can have them for himself. (sick shit, i know. but there have been things like that found concerning other cults) Seriously none of these people can actually state strait out exactly what their beliefs are. They all do a round-about for each question and say “you’re being silly, you’re stupid.” If they believe that by making people hate them means they’re doing the right thing, they’re freakin stupid. One of God’s requests is that you spread his LOVE for his children and tell how he gave up his son because he LOVED his children so much even though they were sinners. Through his LOVE (not hate!) you are supposed to help people find him so they can become better people. Like Louis said, Jesus was a very kind and gentle person (don’t believe me WBC? Actually READ the bible) and he sacrificed himself so sinners could have a chance at heaven. The “meanest” thing I ever remember reading that Jesus said was “Forgive them Lord, for they know not what they do.” Yeah,people nailed him to the cross yet he loves them enough to ask God for their forgiveness. He doesn’t use derogatory words for people, disrespect them, or spread words of hate. I don’t think the preacher gets his message from the Bible. He gets it from the giant pole up his ass.

  • Josh

    Part of me wants to hate them but a part of me can’t. I don’t know why. I’m part of the thing they hate so I should hate them back. I used to but after seeing this, I just can’t hate them. I don’t know why. I respect their opinions and beliefs. We have the freedom to do that in this country. They aren’t physically harming anyone, that’s one thing they won’t do. I think that’s why I can’t bring myself fully against them because I know they won’t do anything drastic to hurt me or anyone else like me.

    • Wanderer Zero

      Yeah, they stick out as some sort of testament for true freedom of speech. They are putting what they believe out there, and we all can make a decision of how we will interpret them and their information. And part of the reason you can’t hate them is because you saw that they are just as human as anyone else and just as prone to suffering (not the unfeeling monsters we’d like to believe).

  • Cheri

    I actually found the ‘interview’ with Fred Phelps gratifying, because he sounded so completely stupid, his equivocations so transparent. I would have liked to see Louis challenge Shirley to rejoice when her son was hit in the head by the drink, or to ask Jael(? the nurse-in-training) why she didn’t rejoice at the ‘mean’ treatment she was given by other students. Not that I think it would make an iota of difference to either of them, but I really wanted to see it. I was also hoping Louis would talk to at least one of the family members who had ‘fallen away’, to perhaps get a little insight into the history of the cult, and some idea what could be motivating some of the joiners (as opposed to the brainwashed). Plus–why hasn’t the Baptist church repudiated this group publicly? Again, I don’t think it would really matter to them, but as a matter of ethics for the Baptists?

  • ruth

    well its just insanity really, any of the christians i know do not preach this kind of bull. god loves us all right? well if i were christian i wouldnt want these people spreading christian words when they got the message so clearly wrong. it doesnt matter anyway, theres only 70 of them and all the kids are too busy spreading hate that they dont want families or to get married, so this ridiculous cult will die with them. they arent physically hurting anybody yet, and untill that happens we should just egnore them!

  • Mireya

    I just found out that the Westboro Baptist Church will be picketing at a high school and Coast Guard recruiting station near where I live, and at first I was very angered. Angry because of all the sacrifices our servicemen and women have made so that these people could have the right to do their ridiculous protests. My father honorably served 24 years in the Army, as well as other family members in other branches and my fiancé who is in the Marines. I am also a strong Christian who is well aware that the Bible tells us that God is the only person (being) with the authority to pass judgement on others. I will not bring up my position on homosexuality as it is irrelevant. The only comment I can make concerning that issue is what I have just said; we have no authority to pass judgement on others.

    I found after watching this documentary, however, I am no longer angered but saddened. It is sad to think people with such hateful thoughts are able to manipulate those that should be closest to them, their family, into following their scornful message. It is sad to see that the children are being brainwashed into spreading their message as well. It’s shocking and downright depressing.

    I agree that Theroux should have attempted to interview the former members of the church, those who left, but it was still a very effective documentary.

    Now, anyone with a legal background correct me if I’m mistaken here.
    To those that feel “something should be done” about their behavior….. Unfortunately, nothing can be. Not anything legal, at least. They are exercising their constitutional rights of free speech, assembly, and religion. Were someone to attempt to stop them, they could take their case to the Supreme Court and win.
    It’s very unfortunate that these people abuse their constitutional rights in this manner. I can only pray that there is still hope for these people to realize what they are doing.

    • Wanderer Zero

      Its not about the sex part (well… mostly) but having the freedom to love whoever the hell you want. As for being proud of ‘taking it up the a**’ as you say, that is an acheivement in and of itself not to mention it feels really good (you should try it sometime… you might just enjoy it), and the other part is optional.

      Rev. Phelps and his ilk are charlatans and frauds. Their congregation is not affiliated with any known Baptist institution or association and is believed to have a following of between 70 and 150 members, many of whom are related to Fred Phelps. Instead of having a legitimate theological motivation, the primary aim of the group is to protest in accordance to their first amendment rights and bring litigation to anyone or any group that disrupts those protests.

      What many people don’t understand is that Phelp’s children operate a charted law firm and they bring legal action against almost anyone who denies them their rights of free speech or speaks falsely about their organisation. In the past decade alone, Phelps and Co. have made a fortune in this manner. Any member of the media who makes even the smallest misquote or gives a negative opinion about Phelps and the church are immediately slapped with litigation.

      Almost everyone who have had to deal with these people professionally all agree that their organisation is a sham that is run only to create venues for successful litigation.

Day after day for their entire life they are told strictly what to believe to the point where they are not allowed actual opinions.

  • Hi,It’sBri

    The gay lifestyle is wrong, hating people is wrong too. A person’s a person no matter how gay. And you don’t convert anyone like this. It’s not a courtesy to shout insults at people, it’s a courtesy to offer help to them. And the Bible is not solely focused on homosexuality, in fact it’s focused on loving and accepting everyone and that preaching the Gospel is most effective without the use of words. Remember that Jesus ate with sinners. That the first man to enter into eternal glory other than Jesus, was the sinner that died on the cross next to him. Jesus said that he who is sinless should throw the stone to condemn someone else. If people were perfect and sinless then Jesus would have had no need to die. The Jews are not responsible for his death. Christ came to die for sinners, so that we have a chance to be in communion with him even though we make mistakes. Saying that the Jews are responsible for the death of Christ is saying that they are the only people who sin, therefore being the only people that Christ needed to die for, making them responsible. But I sin, and his death applies to me too. And a person is more than their sexual orientation. These people are too judgmental for their own good, they are aggressive, and unfortunately with something that is not truth, but a dangerous distortion of it. They make people very sad, turn them off, and they take away from God’s love for his good- his ‘very good’ creation, us.

  • freqazoidiak

    Why does this guy try to change this family? As he stated many times, he’s only a reporter and should not try to intervene, just roll tape.
    It seems contrived in that manner, but this family is just practicing true free speech although I don’t agree with everything, some basic morales are true they do talk on.

    • Wanderer Zero

      Yeah, instead of censorship, giving people all of the information and the mental tools to think critically about it would go much further in combating groups like this springing up. I personally don’t believe anything should be censored as everything has the possibility of growing you as a person.

    It never ceazses to amaze me how ignorant people are and how they can’t seem to understand that life is short and theya re wasting their lives away worrying about nonsens.Things that have nothing to do with them at all.This is why I hate religion.I denounce God and have no use for him or the cocnept of any God.God if he existed would not be an egotistical son of a bitch like people obviously think he is and they that is alright.Think for yourselves fools.You have a mind but do not know how to use it.Everybody on this damn planet who beleives they know it all and question nothing are no less smart than an amoeba.Look that up if you don’t know what it is because I doubt most of you idiots in these stupid CULTS,because that is exactly what you are,know what one is.You all are so stupid to just follow another dumbass because your brain cells are strained.I bet you all are queer and that is why you do this.You are too ashamed to admit it because you’re afraid papa iss going to spank you then you will get an erection and he wil dress you up in little schoolgirl outfits cause you look so damn pretty.Enough of fools like you,if you beleive in GOD then you also beleive there is a Satan and he is going to stick your ass with his pitchfork like a fried weeny!!!!Hail Satan!!!

    • Seth

      Jesus is God. God is love. Jesus said he didn’t come to us to condemn us, he only came to save us. He didn’t point the finger, He took the blame. There is no love greater than to die for the one you love, that is what God did, even in all his power he yet came to die so we can live. I hope this changes your mind at least a little about Christians; what you saw in that video was not the way the Lord told us to be. Jesus would be the one example we should “try” to be like. Bless and do not curse, turn the other cheek, don’t punch them in the gut because your mad, that is not the way God wants us to be. God said the greatest commandment is to love others like you love yourself.

    man what total nonsensical psycho’s… louis should have asked why do soldiers fighting against america die then?… man… if one of their kids doesnt get cancer one day they are happy cos its god will… if their kid gets cancer the next day they are just as happy…. freeeaaakssssss

  • James

    the problem with our way of life and what i mean by way of life is there is toooo much hate, why cant we all just get along smoke a fatty and drink a brew??? why so much war, greed, hate, etc? we all know what is right from wrong, we all feel what is necessary to make each others lives complete. we haven’t learned a damn thing since we all were put here, just hate, chaos, greed and lust. I’m not a religious man but we all have one thing in common we absolutely have NO idea when/where we come from, so just enjoy life and respect and love one another!

  • Charles

    I feel real sorry for the oldest daughter. It seems like she does question her church and wants to live a normal life but is afraid of speaking up for herself. She uses god as an excuse.

    Her parents have made all the decisions in her life for her, and she doesn’t know how to control her own life and destiny. It was sad when she said “who would want to marry me..” I know she wants to find a guy and experience love but knows it can’t happen because of her parents wont let her. So she blames herself.
    I hope she does eventually grow out of it.

  • Cheryl Jones

    This woman just demonstrates how a person can get something so wrong and yet believe with all their heart and soul that they have it so right. But more importantly, isn’t turning your children into social pariahs by teaching them to be hateful, spiteful, mean spirited, judgemental, intolerant and cruel a form of child abuse? The children should be removed from this mentally disturbed woman who is doing nothing more than emotionally abusing them for her own irrational purposes. It is truly a terrible shame that at her age she hasn’t developed a more mature way of dealing with people who think and behave differently from her, other than condemning them and calling them names.

  • omg

    i feel sorry for these kids and the hypocritical upbringing they were born in…

  • draadkar

    Live and let live….is that not central to your Christen believes? Life is too short to hate, rather focus on the good in the world, see how you can help save our planet, do charity, I am sure there are better things that can occupy your time.
    PS: Never come to Holland – our freedom and equality will shock you.

  • Charles

    I’m an atheist by the way….

  • Meg

    For me, as a reasonable Christian, I want nothing more to see the look on Fred Phelps’ face when he meets God and finds out just how much he got wrong. No one gets God’s message perfectly on earth, least of all Phelps. Too bad he’s waaaaay older than I am.

    • Alyssa

      I hate being lumped together with people like this when I tell people I’m Christian. The tables are indeed turning and Christians are going to suffer persecution because of people like this family who took it entirely in the wrong direction.

  • God

    I love how so many people claim to follow the Bible, but leave out ONE key tenet–
    Judge not, be ye not judged.

  • Theological Logic?

    If their picketing is the judgemental word of God through them, then they must also receive his judgements through others and each other. So then why was their child hit with a drink in the head by God, by people in a car with the license plate covered? Couldn’t God have made the license plate be revealed, so they could seek Earthly retribution? (They tried to get the plate number, so they must have wanted to.) In their own logic, maybe the constant onslaught of anger from others is God passing judgement on them, you think?

    Why did the forerunners of their own religion never allow literacy, science, or even bibles? The Christian faith used to murder people for learning to read and write, and for just having a bible. Who knows what texts were destroyed by the churches desire to control the minds of the people? Maybe it was the one you needed. Maybe we need to go back to killing the bible readers, since this documentary proves that some people cannot handle the responsibility of reading the bible anyway. Not to mention, we are a few authors, versions, and translations past the original ‘word of God’, right? Why was that even necessary? Did God forget some stuff or he couldn’t afford to mail it all at the same time?

    Or did God create science, reality, and nature to intentionally deceive us? Where is the love in that? Look, I am no athiest, but I know good logic when I see it, and it’s all around us if you care to look. There is always room for God with science, but there is only one good argument when the facts start rolling in.

    Wonder what the young budding lawyer thinks of that? She owes her life, longevity, and lifestyle to medicine, technology, and other great scientific achievements. But somehow the Christians still can’t get aligned with the evidence and the facts. Otherwise we would all be dying before we are forty, and living with incredibly terrible diseases.

    Unfortunately, they obviously have no sensible child service agencies in the area which would prevent this type of damage to these children. Given the life these kids are forced to endure, and in their own logic, God’s wrath seems squarely upon them, not us.

    It will be a good day for humanity when all of us are given the same opportunities at health, happiness, and freedom. It is only then we will acquire the capability of making decisions for ourselves without corruption, power, and oppression – the very types of decisions God would expect us to make in his image, to save his creation from evil.

    Look around people, it really isn’t that difficult to see it. It’s all money and selfishness. If you believe God contructed us that way to teach us how to not be that way, your smoking the profits.

  • Sebas

    Does god love anyone in particular or does he just hate everybody

    • Seth

      People condemn; Jesus is 100% God and 100% man. Jesus came not to condemn the World, but to save it. To keep it short, God loves everyone, that means everyone, and wishes for all us to trust Jesus and that what he did was more than enough for whatever we could ever do wrong. By faith in Jesus we are saved though grace. Yes God loves us and that is why.

      • Lithirion

        You need to stop preaching to people. You are doing the same thing phelps are doing, telling people they are wrong. It doesn’t matter if god is Jesus or that he came down to save us. The whole damn point is to be a moral person? God or Jesus dont give a crap who died for whos sin! Wasn’t the whole freaking point to be good people and set the guide lines to get into “heaven”. You keep commenting on posts about Jesus, becoming another religious fanatic saying what you believe is true. please stick to the main point

  • persearska

    If those animals ever knew that science can actually determine if the fetus is houmou, they´d kill it. There´s houmou blood in medical sirculation too.

    Don´t let them know.

      There is no such thing as a gay gene. If there was then there would be a murderer gene, a smoking gene, a drinking gene etc… Gene’s do not determine the choices you make in life, you do.

      • Zach

        Its not a choice bud. I am not gay, but I don’t need to be to know that being gay is not a decision. Whether it is a gene or environmental or just plain unexplained attraction, homosexuality is the same as heterosexuality. I didn’t choose heterosexuality, no one has chosen their sexuality.

        My thoughts on the movie: Horrible but not astonishing. Ignorance is rampant and they are just one intrusive form of it. open your heart and let the world sweep you into its entity. People love people and that is the truth. Hatred is manufactured

  • Mike

    They are the biggest american scam, if you mess with them they will sue you, the city, or the police department. All they want is money.

  • Joe

    That one 21 year old girl does have some rebel in her you could totally get that out of her hahaha. But anyways I don’t agree with what they are saying although their dedication is phenomenal. People do tell you to stick to what you believe no matter what and they are definitely accomplishing that.

  • Jared

    Imagine No Religion

    • Seth

      Was Jesus religious?

  • James

    This… was surprisingly good. I didn’t intend to watch more than 5 minutes of it but I watched the entire thing. I really like Lois Theroux.

    I feel like this video should make me angry. I feel like I should be angry at the Phelps’, angry at their message. But… I can’t anymore. I used to hate them before I saw this. Now I just feel sad.

    Lives that are filled with so much empty hate. So many missed chances to feel the love and tenderness that other humans have to offer. It’s… it’s so sad. I always thought that if I ever saw them picketing, I would shout back, or do something so show my contempt for their actions. Now all I feel I could do is walk up to them and say “I’m sorry. I’m sorry for all the hate you’re going to experience in your life. I’m sorry for all the loneliness you’re going to feel. I’m sorry for every second you stand out in the wind, listening to people hate you.”

    Hate begets hate. That church is so pitiful. Those people are so sad, they live under blank smiles and laugh as the precious sand slips through the hourglass and they lose their chances for love.

    The only one I can bear to hate is Fred Phelps himself, he started this. I can never forgive him for that.

    The actions of that church are unforgivable, but so is throwing junk out of your car at a child. No wonder they hate the world, they look into peoples’ eyes and see their reflections, all the hate that they throw at people, and it bounces right back.

    I hope that some day the glass will break, and they see that void streaming ahead and behind them that they’ve made of their lives. Empty words, poorly designed signs, and thousands of dollars just stream off into nothingness, as each of them follows suit. The ones I truly pity are the children.

    I honestly feel like crying at the thought of how truly miserable each one of them has to be inside, and how they will only get worse and worse. And it won’t end when Fred dies, they’ll say he’s gone to heaven to be with their empty god. They’ll keep going, and their children will raise their children and so forth, and there will just be a string of meaningless empty lives.

    I’m so very sorry.

  • Jared

    I really would have like to have seen interviews with the family members that left the church. I thought that was coming, and that it would be the most interesting part. thumbs up if you agree.

  • Ken Finn

    I’d love it if one of her children turned out to be gay

  • Bill Coffin

    Excellent, excellent documentary. It really could have used a segment dealing with those who left the church, as it would show that the mindset of Westboro isn’t entirely impregnable. You got the sense from the oldest daughter that there were some deep seeds of doubt within her. There are with all of us. There even was within Jesus himself. To explore that doubt, and how it motivates even those of this odious church, would have been a real value to this documentary. That criticism aside, an outstanding piece of work, this.

  • Callum

    Honestly, if they’re going to heaven I certainly do not want to be there with them.
    Otherwise I think this is a little outrageous.

I haven’t heard of irresponsible breeding like this since I worked animal rescue at spay/neuter clinics. My God, someone spay this woman before she manufactures more children like herself.

    I think that when “Gramps” dies, a buch of people should get together and make signs and picket HIS funeral!

  • igor

    religion must die

  • Bec

    This shit is sad. I mean these people have been raised from infant-hood to stand by radical and distorted ideas that they weren’t even required to understand. They basically shoved them a picket sign and said “don’t think, just scream and stomp and shout and maybe god won’t throw you into a fiery barb encompassed pit to suffer for eternity.” They also made sure their kids knew that if they died they would rejoice because it is gods will! If you told a kid that when they were two, that scarring mindset is gonna stick and there isn’t really a damned thing they can do about it. They become trapped and have to accept the radical ideas so they can cope.
    Then comes the defense mechanisms they all seemed to have had burned into their brains…it’s like everyone was faxed the same few sentences as an explanation so that no one really needed to make a legitimate original thought. I honsetly don’t know what to think.
    Einstein once said that hatred and evil were not the creation of God, but what resulted in his absence-just as darkness occurs when there is no light. So how can this family’s idea of spreading hatred pain and prejudice in the name of God possibly make sense? I hope one day those kids at least get a chance to see that.

    I think it is ironic how these people hate the US so much however if they were in almost any other country in the world, they would be blown off the face of the earth for saying things like that about their country. Just like anyone else who hates the US, if you don’t hate it so much then LEAVE. But no, they’d rather use the united states capitalistic society which they claim to hate so much and make millions off of this documentary. They can be thrown into a bucket with michael moore and shipped to north korea, talk badly about THEIR country and people… see what happens.

  • B Compton

    The only way we can purge ourselves from such hatred is to love unconditionally. Don’t fight these people, love them, and their point becomes moot.

  • Seth

    I can’t help but wonder if Fred Phelps really actually reads the Bible and if he does, does he know anything about the part where it talks about Jesus and what he has done for us? He didn’t come to this Earth to condemn it, He came to save it.

    As Christians we are to be like Jesus (not be Jesus) and Jesus didn’t throw any stone at any sinner; He stopped the stones from being thrown and pulled off all the “rocks” anyone was willing to let Him pull off. It sounds to me that Fred Phelps has a lot of stones and is so far buried in them he is terrified of the REAL TRUTH for what he might find of himself; which is probably why he never wanted to talk, so instead he just cast stones at everyone else to make himself feel better about his wrongdoings.

    I am a Christian and wish that other people who call themselves Christians would stop doing the opposite of what God tells us to be. A person in the Bible asked Jesus, “What is the greatest commandment?” and Jesus said, “To love your neighbor as you love yourself” and the second “To love the Lord your God with all your heart and all your mind and all your strength.” Not all people who call themselves Christians are Christians.

  • Bob

    Someone needs to find a way to get those children away from that lady before they become her. When she was a child, her parents preached the same to her, and now she’s been brainwashed to the point where she can’t think for herself, all she will do is defend what she has been taught her whole life.

  • Haley

    Isn’t there something in the bible that says one of the 7 deadly sins is anger. When you get to the bottom of this, aren’t they just using these psycho twisted ideas to release there anger for something? Honestly, I think something bad might of happened to all of those children…. and the lady, Shirley or something

  • wut

    This guy is fucking terrible at being an investigative reporter. I hate that I actually agree with the members of the church regarding the interviewer. Next time try sending someone thats going to ask relevant questions instead of some douchebag with a weird British accent.

    • Oscar

      He doesn’t have a “weird” British accent, he has a perfectly normal Britsih accent, of which there are many.

      Your comment shows you to be as bigotted as the Phelps.

  • rosemom

    Did anyone else catch on that they think death is a result of sin? Apparently these people think they are going to live forever??? When they die, everyone else is gonna be happy because their sister or whatever is going to Hell!!! Wonder what’s going to happen when their own preacher passes away.

    Also, why is it ok for the mom to marry and have 11 kids but not her children? What’s gonna happen when her children never have children and grow old and die. It actually gives me relief to know that the church will die out then.

    I’m not trying to sound hateful by any means, just logical. I’m actually very sad by this. These poor children are being brainwashed by their parents and the preacher. I pray to a LOVING God that He may open their minds and their hearts to others. The Bible states “Love Thy Neighbor.” So much for reading the Bible front to back.

  • Unity

    I at first like many was very angered at this family. I now am saddened by the fact that they feel so much hate towards the world. I cannot imagine going day to day “knowing” that the world I live in is going to end and everyone around me, with the exception of my family, was going to hell.
    I feel bad for the girls who truly don’t think anyone would marry them. The fact that they think nobody could love them except for their families is heartbreaking. The fact that the poor 7 year old boy got hurt standing up for beliefs he doesn’t even understand yet is horrible. We shouldn’t be hurting these people. If we do that to them we are no better. Remember the golden rule, treat others as you would want to be treated.

  • Thomas

    TBH this is America, the land of freedom. If these people wanna say all that, the more power to them. If you disagree then do you truely believe in freedom. FTR i dont agree with these people whatsoever. And noone should be subjected to a single religion at a young age.

    When I first started this film, I felt so much anger towards these people. As the film progressed, the viewer is made to feel like they are a part of the family almost, and as said within the film the message they spread becomes almost less offensive. (clearly it is) In the end, I completely disagree with what these people are saying, and I do agree in that it seems as if it is founded in anger and hate. After having seen the film, I feel pity for these people. I feel pity especially for these young children, being given no choice in the corrupt mentalities being instilled upon them. I hope that God (yes I am a christian and do believe in God) has pity on their souls. They seem like they mean well, Wanting to “help” people and rejoice in God’s judgment,only they are corrupted in their beliefs.

  • Cody

    I would pay vasts ammounts of money to hit that family in the face with a baseball bat.

  • Disgusted

    This made me absolutely sick. My brother is fighting in Afghanistan right now, and knowing that there are people who are ignorant and disrespectful enough to go to a funeral for a fallen soldier with signs saying “Thank God for Fallen Soldiers” is not only wrong but it’s absolutely disgusting. Those soldiers are over there fighting for these people’s rights, including the right of freedom of speech, which in my opinion, these people certainly don’t deserve. No family deserves to be harassed in their time of grief, ESPECIALLY not when their son, daughter, brother, or sister was killed fighting for their country. I can’t believe that anyone would think it’s okay to do something like this.

    I live in Topeka and I constantly see these idiots with their signs chanting on the streets with their kids. Its sad really, but to give everyone a little hope, their “church” is constantly being egged, tped and sprayed. They give Christians a terrible name. I feel sorry for their kids…

  • Sophie

    Well I watched this whole thing. I also feel really bad for their kids. I wish I was Lois because during these interviews they had and conversations, there were so many things from the Bible that I could’ve pulled out and they would have no response. One major thing that stood out to me that I’m surprised that Louis didn’t talk about is that all over the Bible, love is constantly being mentioned. Us Christians know that God is love. We should live our lives based on love. And these people have so much hatred inside them towards any human being who isn’t part of their cult (which is about 99.999 perfect of the world’s population). How can they possibly say that they are living by the world of the Bible and serving God when they have so much hatred and are proud of it? I honestly don’t understand. Well thumbs up to Louis because I know I couldn’t stand being around them for 20 minutes. I’m so thankful that there are only a few of them!

  • bakaneko

    I read two comments and watched 2 minutes of this. Plan and simple: I know what I am fighting for and the fact that they are doing this shows that we truly have freedom of speech. I say good job in carrying out that right… you stupid stupid idiot. lack of knowledge can go a long way. How some one goes and just makes comments like that with out fully knowing what is going on in the world or even anything about the life others live and the fact that there are more productive things to do with your self than to just bash the country and military and homosexuals. if you dont like it then leave i am sure that there is another place that will take your attitude and views and then kill you later one for expressing yourself.

    Disgraceful. I can help but think that someone is going to snap and kill one of these people to make a statement. Why can’t they just move to the edge of a third-world country where no one will have to deal with any of this?

    • oh well

      Because then they would be converting people by the thousdands. I’d rather they be here and isolated in Kansas.

      Btw, third world doesn’t mean impoverished, just as first world doesn’t imply opulent.

  • Kade

    They somehow twisted the word of God into some wicked cult. Their is no logic here.

  • Obby

    I grew up in Topeka, watching these people more and more frequently picket whatever they thought had some random connection to homosexuality. It never made any sense to me. This documentary is rather enlightening for one thing: irony. Think about all the technology they use, all the food, supplies, etc… all their external education. Don’t you think it’s possible AT SOME POINT that a homosexual was involved in providing them with something? For example, the cellphone the lady used – couldn’t it have been made in China by a homosexual? Or perhaps, the professor for that lawyer student might have been homosexual? I mean, come on! I remember reading a bit about Kinsey’s sex studies, showing that nearly all of us have SOME homosexual tendencies. Don’t tell me that a gay person hasn’t been involved in their lives FOR THE BETTER.

    • LegalAlien100

      Even better is the irony that the little boy is running around in a Spiderman baseball cap. You can’t get more campy than Spider-man and all the other Marvel characters even if you tried! I mean they are the epitome of GAY!!! Oh, I best not say that or they will steel the poor kids hat from him and ban that from the ‘church’ too:-(

  • TDG

  • Debbie

    I get it. I watched for five minutes and felt disgusted as well.
    The children are indoctrinated from birth and this is the true crime. If an adult wants to express their right to freedom of speech, then they sow what they reap, but the children should be removed from this cultist church and placed into foster care to be re-educated about life, love and compassion. They need therapy.
    To be honest I am too angry to express myself in a coherant manner.

    • Jeff

      Unfortunately the children apparently need reconditioning, not just a new environment.
      Sad fact, they’ve probably been told this tripe while still in the womb.

      Funny part is, if there really is a God, he will not take lightly on those that persecute in his name under false pretenses.

      Hopefully.

  • Ida

    I’ve never said this about anyone……. but these girls should be raped. then they would know where true evil lies.

    • Sana

      How could you wish rape on someone? That won’t teach them the difference between good and evil, love and hate. I think a lot of these comments are just as hateful as they are. They deserve love and respect just like everyone else, no matter what kind of awful things they say. They have the freedom to do it. What this documentary proves is that they are human beings and not these abstract ideas that you can easily pin hatred on. I can only hope that the cycle of hate between them and the people who hate them can be broken.

    I believe these people are some of the most miss guided self proclaimed “followers of god” I have ever wittnessed. To have a belief in god spawned of the hatred for all others is just wong on so many levels. But for the rest of us to wish death and rape and other acts of violence on them isnt right either. For 1: it gives them more fuel to run on,
    and for 2: Engaging in hatred and violence (even towards them) makes us as evil as (I believe) they are. We should pray for people like that. Especially the children who are being taught these twisted twisted beliefs from their infancy.

    Hm. Interesting documentary, but I would have liked to hear from those who were excommunicated/left the church. It would have been interesting to hear their point of views, and why they had left (and maybe in particular their views on religion now and their experiences in the “outside world” now that they’ve left). Also, I though it was kind of strange that Louis didn’t speak more on the Pastor’s broadcast; if you compare it to the video tapes of terrorist factions, there don’t seem to be too many differences.

  • Austin

    So everyone in the church calls Fred Phelps a prophet of God, yet in Fred’s “TV time” he calls someone a false prophet? Kind of backwards thinking in my opinion. These people are sick and I’m sad to say that they came to Ohio (darkest day in Ohio ever).

  • Travis

    Before I watched this I was ready to make a raging comment something like “WE SHOULD MAKE SIGNS LIKE ‘GOD HATES WESTBORO BAPTIST CHURCH AND PICKET THEM!'”, but after seeing the human side of the church I have decided to put a little more thought into my comment.

    Half way in Louis said something like: “their lifestyle, aside from their hateful beliefs, was kind of appealing. It was as if their hostility for the outside world strengthened the bond within the church”. I can see where he was coming from when he said this, and I agree with him, but we also need to consider how the hostility *from* the outside world strengthens them.

    It is natural and very easy to get angry at these hateful and facetious messages in such grave circumstances as the funeral of a young soldier, but we must consider whether OUR hatred for their message is effective at all; Whether resisting this type of action is at all effective outside of emotional gratification. For a belief system that operates on hatred, is there any real progress made in hating them ourselves? The negative feedback they get, from the angry comments of passersby to open threats of violence, serves a purpose counter to the goals of anyone against this church:
    Attacking only brings about defence. By lashing out against these people we only affirm their seclusion from the “outside” and give them more reason to broadcast their hatred.

    This is apparent in the last ten minutes of the documentary, when Jael Phelps talks about how she was ostracized because of her family’s beliefs since childhood. Because of the nature of the belief, the hatred returned from the world only solidifies the righteousness they see in their message. In a sort of vicious cycle, resistance to the Westboro Baptist Church makes them more resistant.

    All I am asking is, seeing how cruel beliefs can seem to be a justified resistance, whether we can count our hatreds of these human beings as any more righteous than theirs.

    Thank you to Louis Theroux, it was truly an eye-opening documentary.
    If you bothered to read this please leave your thoughts! 😀

    • LegalAlien100

      I thought exactly the same thing whist watching this documentary; the church gains strength in bringing out our anger and showing the ‘evil’ that is in our hearts. It is validation to them.
      The most effective action we can take against them, however impossible it may seem, is to simply ignore them.
      I think that the reason Louis was so successful in his approach to dealing with the family is that he refused to place judgment upon them, treating them with decency and respect. Consequently when they continued to call judgment upon him, he showed them up to be the warped, hateful bigots that they are.

    • Anya D Night

      I agree! As long as they’re isolated and hated, they won’t change for the better. The best thing anyone can do is turn the other cheek and live without judgement and through love. Those are all lessons from the same Bible they’re using to justify themselves..  I know that and I don’t even believe in God!

    Nice documentary. While misguided they’re not as evil as thought they’d be, except for that old bastard Fred Phelps. Really felt bad for that one daughter who was always smiling to cover up the pain of being ostracized. Hope she somehow finds a way out.

    Some of these comments made me angrier than anything in the documentary itself. You honestly couldn’t get through more than a few minutes without rage-quitting? Why are you commenting on something you couldn’t even bother to sit through? And wishing rape and death on them? You’re no better than the Westboro Church.

  • Austin Bessey

    I do not approve of homosexuality, but if I saw one of these brainwashed idiots at a funeral for an AMERICAN SOLDIER they would meet God face to face and see how messed up they are. This is just another case of Bible-thumping lunatics who have twisted and distorted the words of a holy book to serve their incredibly messed up ideals. Let them go live in south africa and see how long they keep touting about hating America. They would beg to be let back into the America. There are no true words to describe the hatred I have for this group. I shall spend my spring break outside their ministry with every family member of the soldiers that have died. These people have taken free speech to the point of insanity. What the hell is wrong with them? Put them in camouflage and give them a water gun and send them over to Iraq. Lets see how the Taliban takes their insane ramblings.

  • Austin Bessey

    I made it through the whole thing and I am most definitely better than these people. I don’t wish death on them I just don’t want them to be alive anymore. They need to learn that every American soldier has given his/her life in defense of this nation. A homosexual can protect this nation as well as anyone else. That is what these people don’t understand

    Religion is never as a bad thing, it’s people that make religion bad for others. This lady has probably turned so many people away from christianity just by her horrible acts.

  • Debbie

    Travis,

    I am on the same page as you. Here are my thoughts which I would like to add too.

    Silence is a difficult thing to cope with, as is indifference. If you turn your back on a person, group, community, society or nation and forget them this can break them without hurting them. Then they ask themselves, why. Why is no one paying us any attention any more. At this point a person, a group, a community, a society or a nation can choose to help them.

    I am not a religious person and have read the bible. I reserve the right to believe in Jesus and have my own interpretation of God. Let me just say, I do not look to the skies for the gates of heaven, rather I find God within.

    Turn the other cheek, forgive them? Is this not what Jesus said? Having said that, I am so disappointed in many obviously religious posters here who do not behave as Jesus would have wanted you too. Do you honestly think he would want any pain or harm to come to these people?
    Do none of you understand what Jesus said when he stated “Love thy neighbour”? Do you think he limited that law to the persons living next door? Do you understand what he meant?

    It is only through love and forgiveness that change can come about, there is no other way. Jesus knew this. He died because if he had not none of you would have understood his reason for allowing himself to be placed on the cross. He died for you! He sacrificed himself to teach you; The love of God. One does not have to be religious to realise what this man was conveying. He asked you ‘to do no harm’! The logic in this is so obvious.

    Many of you need to rethink what you are posting. Rethink how you can make changes for these people and their church to become better citizens of your community.
    You attack these people with a ferocity that removes you from the site of God and from the teachings of Jesus.

    If you are religious and reply to this post with any anger, antagonism, wild quotes from the bible which derail the point I am making or a threatening attitude I can guarantee you that you do not believe in Jesus or God or your Holy Bible. You are simply hypocrites.
    For those non religious people, the fact is that there is no solution with violence but I bet my bottom dollar you already know this. There are two sides to human nature, good and evil. It is a choice, not a birthright.

    Make changes now for a better future for your children. Have we all not done enough terrible things to our neighbours, our nations and our only home that has reaped what we have sown? Look around you and glare at Corporations for it is them that have killed your sons and daughters in war, not your neighbours.

  • Mark

    This is my second time watching this documentary. I find myself wanting to hear more details and to understand why these people believe the things they do.

    This kind of belief tends to thrive in an environment devoid of questions. I was raised a Christian and was one until I started asking questions. The more questions I asked, the more I realized what I believe.

    Hate breeds hate, as witnessed by the other comments on this page. I would ask other Christians who view this, what makes their position on gays and gay marriage different from those of the Westboro Baptist Church? Do you believe the same thing? Are you a “just not in my church” kind of person? Do you believe that all people should be treated as equals? How did you come to that conclusion?

    These people obviously believe they have the correct interpretation of the Bible and it is a fairly close literal translation of the Old Testament. So why do you believe what you believe? Is it how you were raised? (like the kids in the video) Did you make a choice based on your knowledge of the Bible and your specific religion? How would you defend your specific faith differently then the members of this church?

    If you’re interested in a better response to their hate please check out what University of Illinois student Jason Connell did. Amazing and genius! Watch his video:

    I have many complaints about this group, but my main one is the fact that these people fully utilize their freedom of speech; but when Louis tries to tell them his opinion, their response is “you CAN’T tell me that what we are doing is wrong!” They are hypocritical idiots who deserve to have their American rights taken away.

  • Taylor

    One more thing, the members of Westboro Baptist Church are the FALSE prophets spoken about in the Bible. One more section of scripture that proves that the members of Westboro Baptist Church are completely wrong and will go to hell is the fact that it was said that the word of Christ and Jesus Himself would be a light to all nations. Obviously, this small group of mislead, ignorant people is not a light to all nations…you have less then 50 members and your word reaches no one. Please comment on this post with more passages from the Bible that they clame to know that prove them wrong.

  • Jeff

    Very good article/documentary.
    Kudos to Louis.

    Unfortunately for the rest of us out here in the real world, working with what we have and dealing with the turmoils of simple existence..these people are thriving.

    There isn’t one single individual that doesn’t have a prejudice, or a wrong oppinion.. it’s a fact of how we all exist. It’s really natural and ‘healthy’ – we fear what we don’t understand or what we feel is a threat.
    This will not change any time soon, it is well ingrained in our dna for good reasons, survival most importantly.

    That said, as much as I’d like to chaulk WBC up to simple uh.. xenophobia? instead it seems as though the hate from an older generation has been refined and distilled into a select community for purposes only really are realized at the patriarchal level.
    The kids and grandchildren seem to be lost to the rest of humanity.. hopefully the koolaide is consumed soon and the grandchildren don’t sup so they can have a normal life.

    And as Louis was alluding to briefly.. this is indeed a cult.
    One of the more horrific since it is so terribly public and causes so much pain to the people it interacts with.

    These psycho bast4rds are still going strong, doing their evil deeds. They would be kicked to death in the UK for picketing funerals.
    Devin says he would kill them if they did it at his Grandfathers funeral. Well that is typical big talk from an American, you wouldn’t do it, no one so far has had the guts or the intecrity to stop them by legal or illegal means in the US.

    • kaitlyn

      @Henri Charrière , here in America we have a thing called “freedom of speech” and that consists of protesting. Although I think this family is COMPLETELY wrong for what they’re doing, their rights are protected because they aren’t threatening anyone. Pay attention to news and you would know the supreme court ruled in their favor this past week.

      On a different note, I don’t understand how these people say they follow the bible when it clearly says that God loves all his people. It’s completely ignorant, everything they stand for. It’s hateful and yeah hey deserve to be punched in the face. But by the end of this video, I honestly felt bad for them. I think the grandpa priest did just brainwash his family and it’s awful.

      • Jeff

        I personally believe they are barely skating on the thin ice of ‘not threatening anyone’.
        They are not openly acting in violence.. not to say they are not funding or actively helping such behind closed doors.. it would not surprise me in the least if they were.

        Humor me here.. but if a soldier, or said grandfather of said soldier, went and emptied his gun on these folks.. who’s fault would it be?
        Blame the person for murder?
        Blame the WBC for fueling rage?

        • Highway

          I find it ironic that a church that they frequently protest caught fire. And it just happened before they Louis shoots this thing. So I wouldn’t put it past these people to have started it because it wouldn’t be a sin in their twisted minds as long as no one was killed. Being a Marine, it pains me to know I fought for these assholes rights. But just as they have the right to protest, everyone else has the right to not have to listen to their crap. If you strike out at them with violence, it will only make them look like martyrs. A lot of them are lawyers, and they probably studied at Berkley. That’s the way those hippie, anti-war, anti-military bastards are.

          The lack of anything of what they said being backed up by any Bible scriptures just tells you that they have no clue of what is in that book or they are trying to interpret it as a lawyer. Which as a lawyer would mean they are doing it without feeling when the Bible is the living word of the LORD.

    The only one who has the power to judge is God. God loves, and forgives. In no way do these people have the right to pass judgement, when they are sinners themselves. In no way will some one who wishes death upon another person, who mocks and laughs at pain and grief, and who is happy at the thought of another human being burning in hell, is a glorified, sin less person. These people are teaching their own children to hate. And theres no way that Jesus would hold a sign saying he hates one of his people. God loves all, God forgives all. If they preach hate to the world, of course their going to receive hate back. There haughty, arrogant attitudes makes me sick, and I feel sorry for the kids. I can’t wait for no one to marry them, that way this entire lot and their ideas become extinct.

  • Lauren

    The fact that the younger children don’t really know what they are protesting just shows that as they get older the children are simply repeating what has been stuffed down their throats with out truly knowing if what the believe is right. It’s so sad to grow up in a family that preaches hate that strongly and not have a chance to form your own views.

    “We’re servants of the only living God. What does it matter where we come from”

    No dear, you are NOT servants of the only living God. His Son, Jesus, said in Mark 12:30-31 that His commandments boil down to two VERY BASIC commandments. Love God (Congrats, I’ll give you that one) and Love your neighbor. I won’t give you that second commandment. Jesus did NOT say “Love your neighbor…but nevermind about those stupid fags, My pops hates them”. No, He said love your neighbor. He didn’t give ANY stipulation on why they deserve your love.

    …which THANKFULLY is the same way God feels about you. I know that there is NOTHING that any of us can do to make God stop loving us. He may not be happy with your ignorant actions, but He still loves you. Such perfect love.

    Unfortunately, the only real idiot in this whole thing is Louis himself. Both here and in the program about the Neo Nazis, we can see that Louis hasn’t got the faintest idea why he believes in the things he believes in. He shouts out slogans and preaches demacracy and equality and tolerance and whatnot, but, if we are to believe these programs, he has no idea WHY these concepts are good and WHY they should be followed, instead of, for instance, concepts presented by the Neo Nazis and the members of the WBC.
    These people — the Neo Nazis and the members of the WBC – present him with certain arguments, they describe a coherent world view. And he can’t answer any one of their arguments, he can’t contradict one thing they say. Almost every thing he says is a logical fallacy.
    And this is truly sad, because I feel many people in our society are like that — we’re brainwashed with slogans about democracy and equality but we have no idea why they’re good. We can only argue with somebody who agrees that these basic concepts are good. The moment somebody says ‘yes, I think democracy sucks’, ‘yes, I think it’s okay to be racist’ — we’re stumped, we have no way to answer. Because we really DON’T KNOW why democracy is good and why it’s not okay to be racist.
    No wonder it’s so easy to convince so many people to become fanatics — the fanatics can actually tell you why you should believe in something.

    Just to make things clearer — I myself do believe in democracy and equality, I’m an atheist and I have nothing against homosexuals. But unlike Louis, I know exactly why I believe in those things, and I am able to explain why democracy is good, instead of just mumble ‘but it’s good! It’s really good! I mean, it’s democracy, don’t you get how good it is?’

      The United States isn’t a democracy, it’s a republic.

      • Michael

        I was using the term broadly, in the sense that the people have control over the government etc. Obviously if we make the use ‘democracy’ in the sense of a form of government that gives full unrestricted power to the majority than a republic is to be preferred.
        But I appreciate your correction.

      • Johnny

        The term republic in the context used in the founding of the U.S.A refers to public representation, or perhaps more aptly a ‘represented public’ in which the majority view is upheld by way of elected representatives that work on behalf of the general public.

        A democracy is a republic and the U.S republic is a democracy.

        Saying the U.S.A is a republic and not a democracy makes no sense, it’s not a ‘direct democracy’ but it is still a democratic form of governing.

        I think some people have confused the definition of the specific form of democratic system called ‘direct democracy’ with the definition of the democratic system itself in general.

        Any country can very loosely be called a republic since technically any official government ‘represents’ it’s people with or without the public’s actual support, but the republican system laid out in the formation of the U.S.A is clearly a representative democracy with electoral systems for most offices/positions included.

        That’s not to say it’s the best political system however, in fact in my opinion it is a very poor system for providing true democracy especially in the American ultra-capitalist system where it is easily corrupted by those with great wealth buying greater representation than they are entitled to and by foreign interests gaining far too much influence.

        The system here in Canada is even worse but it is still a democratic system for the most part as well.

    Jugde not lest ye be Jugde And to thats is what comes to mind what i saw this i turly feel sorry for all of you with hate in your hearts and also to think you know what God wants.

  • Billy

    The truly ironic part is that God loves Fags as much as he loves these people as much as he loves truly saved followers of Christ. God desires that nobody should perish and go to Hell (or be destroyed by fire after the descent of the new Jerusalem) but in order to make a new heaven and a new earth, one that has no more pain, tears or suffering, He must destroy all that is evil or sinful. If we believe on Christ for our salvation and accept Him then his blood has covered us and we will be with God forever. If we do not accept him we will be destroyed along with Satan and his fallen angels so that heaven will not be contaminated by our sin. These people certainly do not preach or believe in the love of God and his desire for all to be with him in heaven, but it is certainly not our place to judge them. God will destroy them with hellfire if they do not turn from their evil ways to believe and accept the truth – salvation in Christ.

  • Dom

    Im curious to see when someone in their Church dies, and everyone goes and pickets their funeral, to see how they would feel.

    And I especially feel bad for the kids that were born and raised into a world of hate. And going to school everyday with kids that hate you? That must be unbearable

  • Sophie

    What makes me sad is that at the end, the young girl wasn’t even certain that she was going to heaven. This just shows how fragile their faith is. It seems like they’re living in fear and hate. I pray they will find the light that comes from Christ and it will change their lives.

  • Cupcake

    Jesus gave a new commandment before he was crucified: To love each other like He loves us. That, and the first of the 10 commandments, to love God with all your heart, are the most important commandments there are. Sin is inevitable and all sins are equal. The Phelps make no mention to Jesus in this documentary, and He is the reason everyone can go to heaven. They are very wrong in their views and it is sad to see people create so much hate in themselves and in others.

    Whoever is reading my comment, please, just know, if you are unfamiliar with the Bible, that this is not what it says to do or how to act. LOVE is at it’s core. If you are interested, read the Book of John. It is a wonderful place to start to learn who Jesus is.

    Personally I think Phelps is a closet homosexual who is hateful and bitter because he was unable to be who he truly is. There is definitely something perverted going on with the young girls in that family that they are indoctrinated to not want to seek love, marriage and children. I’m curious too how many of those grand daughters are actually the product of incest between Phelps and his own children. What a hateful family and church that is. May God have mercy on their souls because I sincerely doubt that humanity will offer them any mercy.

It’s clear the family has effectively created a world unto itself, and the brainwashing starts as soon as their children can talk. I hope the dissenting ones are living happy, independent lives somewhere far from Fred Phelps and his reach.

    wow, i am disgusted and i want to barf on all of those people. They have zero logic and are wrong about everything they say. Jesus Christ created all people equal and in his own image and likeness. He is all about the message of LOVE he does NOT hate. what so ever. And he was Jewish. These people are mental and delusional. I feel bad for there poor children but if i saw them on the side of the road i would run them all over. They say they are warning all the rest of us but they are the ones spreading the hate, not the work of God. They are idiots! All they are doing is judging people before they even know them and disrespecting the soldiers and their families. What sane person protests a funeral. God is NOT Judgmental, He does not Hate anyone! AND HE GIVES US THE ABILITY TO CONFESS YOUR SINS! He forgives!!!! They should be bowing down to them for the honor and commitment and protection they have given this country. I say that since they hate America so much we ship all their crazy asses to some stranded island.

          What exactly was I wrong about? I did not make any statement. The statement I put was his (notice the quotes!) to as him – as he was so strong on logic – which is clearly your strong point too – whether logic brought him the conclusions he had about Jesus. I do like how you like to come in and tell people how wrong they are with details of a ‘belief’ that you yourself have no idea of and are just taking on faith like the rest of the ‘true believers’. Someone told you something unprovable a long time ago and now you just take it as fact and like to push it around as if you know what you are talking about! Anyway – thanks for the correction Jesus – much appreciated 😛

    This cult is definitely messed up, and we need to get those kids out of there, as what they’re being told is an extreme form of child abuse.

    I’m also very disappointed by the attitudes people commenting on this abomination have about this situation. You want to kill them, (murder), you’re condemning them (judging even though every other post quotes the ‘judge not less ye’ line). Their ‘religion’ is wrong, but yours is ‘right’ because it says so in the Bible? Well if that isn’t elitist and judgmental, I don’t know what is.

    And as for the few posts with references to ‘prove your God exists…’, He could appear, build the Starship Enterprise out of a stick and piece of gum, you STILL wouldn’t believe.

    Their day will come, just as it will for all of us. Looks as though some want to speed it up for these lunatics. Probably shouldn’t stop with these extremists though, there are many other cults just as bad if not worse. Screw it, Kill ’em all!

    Having said that, it dusgusts me how full of hate these people in the church are and I believe that most of the backlash that they get, they deserve. The things that makes me most upset though, are the kids that were born into this church and into their parents belief. I think their kids should be taken from them because they are experiencing extreme child abuse and brainwashing. These are just kids though, they dont know better, so they just follow their parents beliefs, and thats trully devistating.

God loves us all, even though we’re sinners and to Him, no sin is greater than another. Let God judge when the time is right. Until then, do us all a favor and keep your mouths shut.

            So essentially you’re only believing to “save your ass” just in case. The Bible along with many other books are in heavy accordance with astrological events. I don’t follow the Bible through and through for religious purposes because I’m not religious by any means.. though the anthropomorphized version of God isn’t real, he still exists at the center of how our universe is, and just is. God is in us all, religion separates that truth. Evolution is as Godly as it gets, though it’s time people realize all that is left with evolution is evolving into a higher consciousness of awareness and realization in how we came to exist… not by a scripture (or plural) that many theologists intentionally misinterpret to cover up the truth to our existence. There is a higher power, but religion (as all have proven) serves as a wall between you and the truth.. thus why there are so many different interpretations of God in religions and/or denominations. In regards to Jesus’s resurrection, again actually research a book other than one with theological basis that explains the events, such as his resurrection, in astrological events over “time.”

      Jesus is not dead; Jesus died but rose 3 days later to prove He had the power over death.  When Adam and Eve sinned/disobeyed they brought death and sin into the world and the punishment for sin is death,  Jesus died in mans’ place so man could be reconciled to God.  God is offering anyone who receives Jesus as Lord and Saviour forgiveness for sin; but if that forgiveness is rejected the alternative is HELL for eternity,  HELL was not created for man but for Satan and his angels who rebelled against God.  It was when the serpent tempted and persuaded Adam and Eve to disobey God that the punishment to be sent to HELL was also passed on to any man who followed Satan and disobeyed God.

    You know, Jesus befriended all. He was even friends with a prostitute and a tax collector. He Knew that Peter would deny him and that judas would betray him. But he was fine with that. All you really need to go to heaven is to believe. Believe that Jesus Christ saved us from our sins with his LIFE. A life that he GAVE away to save us, the sinners. He never hated homosexuals. He never told his disciples to go and spread Gods wrath to all those unholy. Picketing a funeral does not make you holy. It makes you nothing mre than a scared child bullying his way into anything that he pleases. God teaches love. He teaches of to love others as we love ourselves, and to love others is to love God. Hating others for nonensical things makes you a bully and rather spiteful. I feel sorry fo this church, really, I do. The reason this is so overdone is probably because of something in the pastors past that made him hate homosexuals and that saddens me. All these people will probably go to hell because the pastor has brainwashed them into thinknng what they do is normal and right. And they are so far into it that no matter whatanyone else says, they will not change their minds. Thisis just creating anoter reason for nonbelievers to go further away from christ. They say nt to be a snake, sneakily slithering along and influencing people into dong the wrong thing, but they themselves are doing. just. that.

    You know that I don’t get… Why are these people a threat? There are Muslims that don’t “verbally” execute homosexuals – they do it, in public, to massive cheering crowds. No Problem. There are some Muslim groups that are allowed to preach for the destruction of this country – in this country, they get the best attorneys around to defend their free speech rights and anyone that disagrees is racist. About 5 years ago an anti-war group called Code Pink held a protest in front of Walter Reed Army hospital with mock funerals for returning soldiers – in front of LIVING IRAQI WAR VETERANS…. no media attention whatsoever. What a lot of you probably don’t know about these people is that they are all attorneys. They’re wealthy attorneys that understand the law and hide behind the same laws and tactics that anti-war protestors have for decades. All the while that it was fine and dandy to call a veteran a baby-killer these laws were vigorously defended. Then comes the all-holy protected class of homosexuality. If these people were doing the same thing but because of GW Bush or with Anti-war/US placards they would be defended all across the national media.

    In the eyes of many, the real victims aren’t the dead soldiers families, its the homosexuals who have to put up with bigotry. Then other jackasses use their superior level of tolerance to bash Christians? You idiots have played a huge part in the biggest mindfuck ever. You don’t know if you’re supposed to feel sad for the families or the gays. One thing is for sure, Christians are meanies! That’s why I’m athiest and I’ll support any Muslim that wants to talk about beheading me or my gay uncle as long as this Phelps crew goes down with us……

  • God hates sin, not sinners

    The Phelps family loves God. And they have good intentions but have screwed scripture right up. They’re missing the message of God. God in the end will judge people and Christians want to pass this message off to non-believers to save them! This is so great because everyone deserves a fair chance at heaven :)
    BUT this family is not “loving thy neighbour” in Romans Paul says that it’s NOT OUR PLACE to judge others, but LOVE THEM. We shouldn’t picket funerals, but talk to people, share the message of God and serve others. This is disgusting behavior. FULL of judgment and hate.
    WE ARE ALL SINNERS but God loves us. That’s why he sent Jesus to the cross to die for our sins. We need to love Jesus and love God.
    The minister is swearing and judging and sending out women and children to spread the message by hating people..

    Unfortunately this church is likely going to hell with the family and all it’s followers.
    P.S. all sins are equal… no hating on the dead. Funerals are natural and biblical

They don’t know jackshit about anything they are talking about. If they do answer one of his questions, they completely turn back around to their stupid slogan. I feel awful for those children. They don’t what they are picketing, and the parents are brainwashing them. I am so disgusted. Everything they say is contradictory. They said they are nice and nonviolent, but their words are violent, and they are laughing at people who “are going to hell” and calling people that disgusting “f” word that I hate even hearing. That is not exactly what I call “nice.” They are completely hypocritical. They hate Jews and don’t “worship the dead.” Is Jesus not dead? Was he not a Jew? Funerals are not worship ceremonies, they are memorials, commemorating the life of a good person. And they are living in America! The so-called damned nation. If America is such a horrid place in their eyes, then why don’t they get the fuck out? We all want them to, that is for damn sure. It is certainly not very Christian of them to be hating and harming all of these people with their words.

    I am not a hateful person, and I am respectful of other people’s opinions, but not when they are shoving them down everyone else’s throats, and especially not when they dont even know what the fuck they are talking about. However, despite my peaceful nature, I want something very bad to happen to these disgusting, pathetic excuses for humans. I hope they all die horribly painful deaths by the ones they have been spreading their hate to. Then, I will be there picketing their fucking funeral.

    Don’t hate them. They feel, in order to by God’s Army at the end of days, they need to be hated by EVERYBODY. These people are brainwashed, stripped of free will, and are true victims. The vast majority of the “church” are direct descends of their leader, Fred Phelps.
    There is one positive thing that comes out of their existence: last year, they came to my town to protest 3 churches. I went as a counter-protester. So did others. By the end of the day, there were 90+ locals standing with me. Old men, mothers holding toddlers, people of every color and every sexuality and every belief system. Heck, there was even a Great Dane with a “God Hates Kitties” sign on. It was an amazing experience, to be standing up with so many others, giving out a positive attitude against those who force their negativity on others.
    Here is an unpublished book about them. It never will be published as it’s evidence in the lawsuit the journalist filed against the publishing company, but it’s on here for free.

      Thanks for the external link. Having read through the transcription of the book I do wonder if the reason it remains unpublished is the appalling standard of writing: no mainstream publisher would ever consider it, irrespective of the subect.

    If these people actually read the Bible they would know that all sins are equal and that God loves EVERYONE. I’m a proud Christian and in my eyes the behavior these hateful, evil people are portraying is exactly the opposite of how God would want them to act. This infuriates me because this type of behavior is what drives a lot of people away from God in the first place.

    Why doesn’t someone rather than fueling their delusion and hate by going against them with the same anger and hate simply have some fun with them. Get a little group – as young as possible is fine as they’ll simply like the fun of it without thinking too much – give them banners with slogans such as “We are scared to question ourselves!” “We are angry and we hate!” “If I thought for a second I was wrong my entire life would collapse” “I Hate Myself!” and on…. Maybe others have more fun and creative slogans. Then simply join in their picket with them! That would be fun – not sure they would like it too much!
    Hey they could even poke a bit of fun at the head guy who hides behind the pre-prepared scripts and can’t answer anything. I’m sure he’s got a good sense of humour!

      Fighting hatred with more hatred and violence, yeah I’m sure that will work out for the better… [/sarcasm]

      Killing them could solve a lot of issues quickly maybe, but then you become even worse than them and someone else will decide to solve that issue by killing you, and then those hateful people will need to be killed too…

      If you kill them because you deem them hateful and then somebody else deems you hateful for killing them would you support your own murder?

      Hatred is never solved by more hatred.

      The most hateful person I have ever known was changed by a very persistent woman who ignored all of his hateful and mean ways and was extremely nice and friendly with him.

      After less than a year he got to the point where he couldn’t understand how she could still be so nice to him when he treated her like crap all the time and started rethinking his views on life and changing for the better.

      I don’t know many people that are as friendly and positive as he is today, the joke around town now is that she ‘lobotomized him with love’.

      Decades of people approaching him with the ‘fight hate with more hate’ philosophy as you and many others support here only succeeded in hardening him and making him more hateful.

      Fighting hate with love and kindness took less than a year to do away with his hateful ways.

      But I don’t expect such a thing in our modern militarized societies where people are constantly played against each other in the name of preserving the social ‘synthesis’.

      Teaching people that love is more powerful than hate would be counter-productive for them, it would destroy the militarized pro-war ‘synthesis’ they have established and put an end to their war profiteering and political games.

      In our modern societies I blame the Holocaust Industry for creating the idea of ‘healthy hate'(as Ellie Wiesel put it) – the notion that hate is a bad thing but hating hate can be a good thing, which is retarded as history shows hate of any kind always leads to evil deeds.

      Any time you hate someone for any reason it becomes justifiable to do evil things to them. Like lynching them or ‘shanking’ them, or mass-murdering and ‘ethnically cleansing’ them.

      See – Nazism; Zionism; Americanism; The Christian Crusades; Islamic extremism; etc.

      The Nazi’s felt justified in their hatred of Jews because they deemed ‘international Jewry’ to be behind Soviet Bolshevism(most of the Bolshevik leaders were Jews) that was hateful and destructive itself in ‘purging’ all non-Jewish religions and imprisoning millions of Catholics, and who had backed Polish militias murdering ten’s of thousands of ethnic Germans in Poland throughout the 1930’s.

      They also deemed a group of German Jewish Zionists to be responsible for betraying Germany in WWI(in exchange for the Balfour Declaration) and for the dismantling of German industry post-WWI that sent millions of Germans into neighboring countries like Poland looking for work and led to many in those countries thinking the Germans were ‘stealing their jobs’ and led to lots of tension, and in Poland Bolshevik-backed mass-murder.

      “If the international Jewish financiers, inside and outside Europe, succeed in plunging the nations once more into a world war, then the result will not be the Bolshevisation of the earth, and thus the victory of Jewry, but the annihilation of the Jewish race in Europe!”

      ~ Adolph Hitler, January 30, 1942 – recalling a ‘prophesy’ made in a speech on January 30, 1939.

      The Nazi’s hated the haters and mass-murder and the internment of millions of Jews and communists was justified as such.

      Now we hate Nazi’s as much or even more than they ever hated Jews, and the Zionist Jews do the same to the Palestinians.

      Hating is never healthy, no matter what people like Ellie Wiesel may say.

      The cycle of hate needs to stop, the world could really use some love.

      These WBC nuts should be made to see the error in their hateful ways, not be punished or even killed for it(unless they actually violate the law of course).

      But again, our society isn’t set-up to encourage that so I’m quite well aware of the fact I’m being a dreamer here.

      But I always have some room for hope.

            Sorry Johnny, But it doesnt seem like you understand. when it comes down to it these people are evil and do nothing for the human race other then impead on other people rights and freedoms. should they be killed for this…no, would I feel the least bit sad if someone did kill them…Hell no, I would be happy. Punching them in the face is justice against these bad apples.

          • Johnny

            Everyone who hates always has justification for their hate.

            It starts with ‘I wouldn’t care if’, then people like the above murder-happy losers come along and get everyone worked up and it eventually becomes ‘let’s kill these fuckers!’.

            And I understand perfectly –

            The WBC people view gays and other people they don’t like as vile, evil, subhuman and unworthy of being shown mercy.

            These loser above promoting murder hate the WBC people and feel they are vile, evil, subhuman and unworthy of being shown mercy.

            The difference between them is that as you have shown these losers here would likely have majority support, whereas I doubt the WBC will ever achieve that.

            And that is what frightens the hell out of me more than the hatred of the WBC nuts – majority support is what separates a serial killer like Manson or Bundy from mass-murders like Churchill, Stallin and (allegedly) Hitler.

            It is you who doesn’t seem to understand what the cycle of hatred is and how if it doesn’t stop now it’s going to escalate and get out of control.

            A small number of religious nuts spewing hatred is less of a concern to me than 5 million “good people” spewing hatred they deem is justified by words ushered and actions undertaken by those small number of people that they don’t agree with.

            You agree with one side and thus you support one side, I don’t agree with or support either side so I view both sides as equally retarded and hateful.

            But the one with potential majority support is the greatest danger, not the easily dismissed minority fringe nuts.

          • Johnny

            Fair enough, but this line does seem to imply you are advocating their violent views –

            “would I feel the least bit sad if someone did kill them…Hell no, I would be happy”

            How could you be happy for them to die if you don’t support their being physically harmed or killed?

            You basically just said you personally don’t want to or don’t have the guts to commit the act yourself but if someone else does it you’ll be glad they did.

            I honestly don’t mean to start an argument, I’m just curious if I misinterpreted that statement?

            I personally wouldn’t shed a tear for them if they died either, but I wouldn’t be happy and if it was a case of murder I would want justice to be served to the murderer(s).

            If that it was all you meant and I am just taking your statement too literally then I apologize.

            Remember that some of “them” are children, do they die as well? Would you be sad to see them dead?

            Words do not kill people ;so why would you wish them dead? They  are not worthy of  notice, let alone going to prison for; and it is never right to kill some because  they tic you off. You play into their hands when you reacted so violent to their nonsense. What happened to  love is better than hate? Change your mind?

            I wish they would shut up and get a life, but that is not too likely to happen. But, the movement may die as more and more members leave and others are not there to replace them. We can hope.

            I can not agree with what they stand for and their logic and lack of theology, history, etc.. is astounding,but if we do not stand up for freedom of speech, then our voice of opposition maybe silenced as well.  We happen to be part of the majority on this issue, but what happens if we fall on the side of the minority?

          • http://www.facebook.com/david.nielsen.3726 David Nielsen

            How can you ‘not shed a tear for them’ and yet want justice for the murderers?  If you are advocating for their death but want justice for their murderers you are being ‘double-minded’.

            Johnny you sound very intelligent but you are as blind as WBC.  They also believe they know the truth when they are actually in darkness.  Jesus never supported hating anyone because everyone except He/Jesus sins.  And if all sin then are all guilty and if all are guilty all deserve death.

            Jesus came to die to pay the penalty for mans’ sin.  And those who reject Jesus love death.  By not shedding a tear for their death you are advocating for the same penalty for yourself.

            So while you try to infer he should care more for others because of his “right to free speech” being fought for by soldiers, you want to “take him out” as well for his right to free speech. It’s no wonder yours and others’ posts are so idiotic, your foundation of responses are built on hate. There is always a contradictory and hypocritical justification when it involves less than love as a resolution. If you truly believe that soldiers are overseas dying to protect our freedom of speech then you’re obviously as blind as any one of the members of WBC and aren’t keeping up with current events because you’re focused on hating a small group of other people that hate. You hate their hatred. How comical..

            That is their exact justification for feeling happy when soldiers (etc..) die. By being happy to see them suffer because you deem them “evil” is the EXACT same thing as when they do it. Just because your reasoning is more logical, it doesn’t make it any more right. Jonny is correct, hate just breeds more hate. While I felt sick when I watched them spew lies of hate and bigotry to their children and their targets, I also felt sick when someone threw that soda at the little kid who had no clue why he was out there. The only way to end this type of insanity is to not respond like they expect. They expect to be treated cruelly, and that is what you are offering to do. It is just as ridiculous as what they do, it is simply a smaller (and more appalling) target.

            this is true, though almost impossible if these people were treated with love and kindness i think it would throw them off all together. They expect hate and I would do the opposite to these assholes .
            Not saying it would be genuine love and kindness but they thrive off being hated so i think it would be the ultimate fuck you to this family

          • http://www.facebook.com/les.lee.338 Les Lee

            Not even close. Their justification is religious. It is hard to think of anything that is the same, other than a feeling. A feeling! The morality isn’t the same at all. Note, I do not believe it would be moral to kill them. But I wouldn’t see the actions as identical.

          • KeepUinCheck

            First good and evil are relative terms, and second it is much easier to kill than to coexist. Why take the easy way out? Also the act of fighting violence and hatred with violence and hatred creates a paradox more “evil” than any kind of hate-speech or insensitive protest these people can do, thus from my relative point of view making you a bit more evil. I will admit that I had violent thoughts about these people, but the understanding of the implications of those thoughts is needed.

        I have 1,000 reasons for hate & revenge, but I find you are right.  The cycle does need to stop, and we need to choose love.  Make love ‘cool’ again. 

        Look at what humans can accomplish; now imagine what we could do (and how much spare time we would have) if we stopped hating each other.
        Maybe someone, somewhere, might enjoy their life for once in the history of the Earth.

        But you know what, Johnny?  It gives me hope to see that there are people out there thinking along these lines.  There is a beginning taking place, a shift in our way of thinking, and you are proof of that.  So, know that your words do not fall on absolutely deaf ears.

            The Bible says hatred is the same as murder and murderers will go to HELL.  Are you prepared to go to HELL for your hatred?

            Jesus came into this world as a Jew but was also God in the flesh.  And Jesus said no man goes to the Father (heaven) except by Him (Jesus).  So although Israel was God’s chosen people only a remnant will be saved (go to heaven) because the majority of Israelites reject Jesus.

            Recognize Jesus for who He was..the Messiah who came to die for sinful man.

(it does not really matter in what form even xbox works fine. although it verry much recomended to be creating and not destroying)  -becouse the knowledge of your self and  the length of your concentrationspan  will determin the outcome of your last trip when you die… and if you go to heaven or to another form of life (not hell)in other words .if you face your demons and dragons in life you die-ing proces will be an enjoyable one.but now i start sounding like a kung fu movie  but the (your) knowledge is all out there .every truth shouled contain everybody elses  truth init in other words if you dont understand the other one (anyone)  your not there yet.  my reference for these statements are actualy comming from somewherethe are field tested for  3000+  years   ( 15 years by myself : ) )the tibetian book of living and dying by Sogyal Rinpoche.isbn 978-3-426-87528-5and besides if there was a god who demanded hate and retrebution to anything or anybody i  wouled not want to be any part of that.there are plenty of other god who do preach tolerance love and connectivity or unity of all things .i rather end up in there heaven.

       This is a late post, but this will help others. They not only want you to do that (firebomb, attack, violence) against them, but others have already thought of this. Their “home” already has bullet holes in it. They’re real life “trolls” and use this to sue or enable their position. No news is bad news. I, myself, am from Kansas and know enough to ignore them. They achieve their power from hate. Love one another.

      I don’t advocate or agree with there sort of behavior, but if someone say this while in the context of losing his rights, being arrested, attacked and even attempts on his life how much more important is it to do for people who are being simply disrespectful, arrogant and obnoxious

    I was disgusted when that child got hit by that object. Of course, if it was one of the older people, I wouldn’t have felt bad at all… but the children have no choice BUT to believe in this stuff. It is an undeniable fact of social psychology, and it is in the child’s development when such a message can become unerasable. Its like taking a blank slate and writing in permanent ink “GOD HATES FAGS”. That’s all it is. Engraving. These people are slaves to the people who raised them.

    Not a very religious person myself, But this is just down right awful. Its in our nature to sin.Its the way we were all raised.I believe nobody is perfect and nobody should ruin and waste their entire life trying to be. according to the “Scripture” these people are preaching, we all sin 100 times on a daily basis. Well sometimes i think “God” would want us to enjoy our lives, have our fun, and learn good and bad through our experience and mistakes and not living a sheltered, Anti-social life fearing him and being his “slave”.Me? I don’t know what i want to believe in, but i do know you don’t need to follow “God” or any religion to have morals and be a civilized, respectful, and a good person.

    They say everyone that dies is going to hell because god wanted them dead? What if one was to shoot all of the elder members infront of the kids??? would the kids be happy that GOD was Cleansing more people? or realize that GOOD people DO die?

      I agree. The oversight is really peculiar, especially considering that Louis Theroux is the BBC’s point man for covering American topics. So one does expect him to get all angles. Or at least tell us if the four ‘fallen’ members refused his overtures. I also would have liked to hear from some of the church’s drive-by enemies and/or some of the deceased soldiers’ families: especially their own views on how they would separate out all the contradictory elements of the church members’ picket nonsense! There really is no input from the outside world in the film and that is a terrible weakness.

    I’m a Christian and no where does it says “God hates fags”.
    It says in the Bible that homosexuals will not inherent the Kingdom of God along with adulterers and thieves. But wait. Jesus teaches that even if a man looks at a woman with lust he already committed the act of adultery.
    God doesn’t favor one sin over another.

  • Religion – as dumb the WBC

    Why are so many people deluded by “God”. Made up by ourselves, to help ourselves, cope with the inner feelings of isolation, and the torment of death. As fictional as ghosts, fairies, elves, harry potter.. etc… the list is endless. Now I don’t mean to totally condemn that there is nothing beyond death, because that statement itself is impossible to prove and very ignorant. But that doesn’t mean that all the religions today are right at all. There are obvious reasons why people who are in distress and affliction do, that goes without saying, and I think its amazing how it helps people who would otherwise have nothing, but that doesn’t mean its right.

    People are free to believe what they want, and that is fair enough, but that should be where it ends. People should not try to educate others into what they believe, definitely not what i’m doing now 😉 but instead people should be left each to their own. The people in this video are idiot, do deserve to be punished, but like others have stated – it will achieves nothing in the big scheme of things. They won’t go to “hell” just like they won’t go to “heaven” either, because those places don’t exist. They will likely end up as the raw materials which link us all together, and will create something else, hopefully some better.

    Life is a cycle of creation, that should be spurred on by the desire to better ones self, and those around ourselves. It should not be to satisfy a made up “entity” personified by the very people who created it, just to allow sanctuary for their anguish.

    I am not trying to postulate that nothing else exists beyond what we know – because I can’t, but I am trying to disprove what is believed today, Christianity, Islam, Judaism and all the rest – all nonsense.

    If there is actually something out there, something other than forms of life similar to ourselves, which there almost certainly will be. I think that it, a “God” would do me justice for using my brain rather than playing part in a very well constructed story.

    Do things because their right, not because a silly book – and yes it is stupid – tells you to. Don’t be manipulated by the regime, the largest form of control – even above the United States Government.

    They are not violating any laws, why don’t you people all get together and protest them as you are legally entitled to do just as they are?

    Make up signs just as hateful and stupid as theirs – maybe “Jesus was an evil fag” or whatever stupid crap – and wherever they go stand 30 feet away from them, between them and whoever they are trying to picket, and protest them in a loud but peaceful and legal manner.

    If you keep your cool I’d bet they probably wouldn’t be able to and would get themselves arrested.

    I definitely don’t approve killing them, but they need to realize that what they are doing is taking God’s word and using it to support their own personal views, simultaneously pushing away those that could have been introduced to God. At the very end she said “Who would want to marry someone serving God?” This made me realize that everyone should want to marry a person of and serving God, and the fact that she thinks that she can’t find a husband because she is serving the Lord is simply idiotic. If you are truly serving God, people will be rejoicing at his grace and glory- not flipping you off and screaming obscenities. These people are pushing past the limits and bringing out the worst in people just to bring up some idiotic fallacy that their anger shows their sin. I am a senior in high school in Minnesota and many of the people in my family have served in the armed forces to protect our people, and I have had this conversation with my brother (right after he returned from Iraq) and I see these people as probably THE MOST disrespectful people on the Earth whose contradictory ideologies are sickening and completely against God’s will. God does not hate ANY of His children, and in no way is it any man’s place to judge who should and should not go to Hell. I think the best thing we can do for these poor, mislead people is pray that they change their ways and accept that God is in control and His love is more powerful than any fluorescent sign, which is why we need to reflect that love to one another.

     The last part honestly made me feel so sad for the young woman he was talking to.  She kept saying over and over that she knew what they were doing was right, but I could see in her eyes that she didn’t want the life she was given.  She didn’t want to live like that.  And she couldn’t help being born into that society and having those ways of thinking forced on her.  Seeing some of these people speak makes me sick, but other times it just makes me feel sorry for them.  :(

    This is the most disturbing thing I have ever seen. It’s awful that they teach these innocent children from such a young age all of this hatred. How many kids does the mother have? Did god magically place them in her uterus? NO…bottom line she is a “fornicator”…face it lady, you liked to get fucked otherwise you wouldn’t have so many kids to infect with your poison. These people are whacked! That girl is studying to be a nurse? She should probably quit as all of her beliefs and values contradict those of the nursing profession. Wouldn’t it be crazy if the mother got smoked by a car at one of their pickets? Maybe then they would think their whole existance is a bunch of bullshit. Haha maybe that’s why gramps doesn’t go to them…that would put a kybosh on their religion for sure.

    I wish for Americans to stop being so fucking religious. I hope this is extreme though and there’s not so many SO retarded people like these. What wasted lives those people have! I wish they actually really experienced ‘life after death’ and just see what kind of crap they were living for their whole lives and how their heaven doesn’t exist and then see their faces. Retarded is all I can say for this whole inbreed family.

  • Anonymous Agnostic

    I am basically agnostic, meaning that i dont have a preferred religion but am rather ok with the fact that I dont know if there is a god, or if any one religion is necessarily correct-maybe an outside view could help this discussion. The one thing i do like about many religions is that their teachings provoke good in the community; good values, mission work, helping others. With that said even though I do not attend church services I still try to uphold many of these values or teachings (such as the ten commandments, or correct karma according to Buddhism) to instill good around me and to do morally correct things.

    To put this in perspective in reference to this documentary, it really confuses me as to how religion can completely take over someone to the point seen here, to be utterly and completely senseless. To not have friends, to not have relationships, to be essentially brainwashed into thinking everyone around you is faulty and is not deserving of heaven, but you are because you tell them how much god hates them. How does that give you special privilege into heaven? What good have you done with your life? I rate people people based on what they go out and do, not what they say. In no part of this documentary did I see them doing anything to help anyone but themselves. Their idea of “glorifying god” is just selfish picketing that helps nobody and just pisses people off. They are so consumed with their own little idea of “religion” (hate) they cant even fucking show some respect to a family who just lost some one very dear to them AT THEIR FUNERAL, not to mention gay people, which is the case that i was one, would laugh at these worthless jokes because if anyones in line first its not going to be you guys. If god lets them in then i think i will pass.

    To end though, many people posting here keep saying they should be killed, blah blah. I can see why you would say that- but rather than kill why not just ignore, or maybe laugh? To me if you let peoples words get to you, then they basically win-their bullshit needs no argument, it is obviously flawed. The best part about this documentary to me was how Louis Theroux did just that; no matter how badly he wanted to just stop and go off on these people, instead he just kept asking questions  and then smiled when they eventually couldnt answer with anything logical.

    PS- Someone get those little kids out of there before its too late. The six year old holding GOD HATES FAGS didnt even know what it meant- made me just grimace and shake my head.

    I think that the whole human race, including the West Borough Baptist Church and those making strange comments here could benefit a lot from Socrates or from philosophy as a whole. When you get down to it; it doesn’t really matter. As Confucius said “Don’t complain about the snow on your neighbour’s roof when your own doorstep is unclean”.

                 Does it really matter that they are picketing funerals ect.? I mean sure it’s interesting to watch and I suppose could be intepreted as twisted (although I see it more as sad) but really? Surely the families of the soldiers know the deceased aren’t ‘fags'; they know these people never knew them personally. What is the real motivation behind your hate? If it is because of your “patrotism for America”, surely those who are the strongest patriots would be so self-assured in their pride that such petty insults would not effect it?

                While on the subject, is that extreme strength of pride merited? I mean I like living in Britain; it’s a nice country but I’m not fanatic. If it’s from the constitution and the founding fathers, and all that other sentimentality that almost reaches religious proportions, does such a dry concept really merit that much pride? Ok you’re free and have liberty, why don’t you just enjoy it?

                 Beware hubris. It seems pretty obvious that the people in this video’s logic is flawed. Isn’t that enough? It seems ironic to me that the pride of the American people in their constitution of freedom leads them to acts that display the very opposite. For example they try to enforce democracy on Iraq and Afghanistan (supposedly the motivation perhaps, but if not it’s even more unconstitutional), is that truly the freedom of self-determination?
               
                 This family is another example. They exercise their right to opinion and freedom of speech but people think they should be prevented, or even killed, in the interest of America? I may be confused, but surely the whole concept of the United States was individual freedom for all. There is so much flawed logic here that it might perhaps annoy me if I didn’t accept almost everything on philosophical terms.

    That is my key point: Life is life. To become angry or disillusioned; to feel the need to force your opinion over others is to show unrealistic expectation of world. People like this exist. They always have and always will. Get over it.

    I see a lot more hatred coming from most of these comments than I saw coming from the Phelps.  They certainly effectively get their message across…and I think if you read your Bible you might just find that what they say is actually Biblical truth.  It’s your choice to condemn the message (and the messengers) and of course your choice to believe what you will.  This church appears to be narrowly focused on one topic and they even admit they aren’t trying to win souls to Christ but to preach the truth.  God is love, this is true….but sometimes we humans love our own children best by administering lectures and discipline that they don’t like.

    Ok I am a christian and this family is borderline idk it is not the representation that I see. Yes I do not agree with homosexuality but they are going overboard with how they approach things. They are completely wrong with how they are going things. The world does not hate Christians, these people maybe but other Christians. The only way I see these people going to heaven is if they truly believe that Jesus died on the cross for their sins. Other than that then they will not be in heaven.

    okay, yes there is still homophobia in the world, and its awful. but this isnt so much a look into homophobia, or even the typical condemnation of homosexuality by the church, as it is a comedy. this “documentary” is, quite purely, a freak show.  It is simply made for laughs and to make viewers feel better about themselves after watching it.  Yes, we feel just a tad sorry for the people we’re watching, especially for the kids who were born into this family, but not that sorry–because they are terrible terrible people, and because honestly stupidity is funny. I know, its not nice to laugh at things that are ‘lower’ and more stupid than yourself, but just like people falling downstairs and stepping in poop is funny, these people are fucking FUNNY. They pose absolutely no threat to society, and in fact live as a hated and disgraced minority.
    So really people, although some of your comments are quite interesting they are probably better held in debate elsewhere. Discussing homophobia in the forum of this video is as redundant as discussing the safety issues of standing on tables on the Scarlett Takes A Tumble video. This video is a guilty pleasure really, a cheap shot at a group of pathetic people that are so horrible they DESERVE the name “most hated family in america,” which gives us all a free pass from any feelings of guilt or attempts at understanding and empathizing with them.  And any documentary that puts us in a place so comfortable we feel no need to challenge our beliefs, only reaffirm them, any video that discourages us from trying to understand or empathize, is not a documentary at all. Its a farce.
    That said, I’m not really making a dig at this film– it was intended to be farce. I just thought it might be relavent to point out that you shouldn’t be feeling smart or empowered after watching this. Watching this video and hating the family it depicts is comparable to watching a video called “fat people lol,” and laughing at a montage of fat people eating cupcakes and snapping chairs. Except that in today’s society, laughing at fat people is actually kind of taboo–we’ve actually begun to try to understand obesity so that we can fight it. The only way we’re going to beat homophobia is if we try to understand it- this video provides no insight. But it IS hilarious! So laugh it up, and stop bringing up Hitler. This is not a smart opinionated people video. This is all about the lulz.

    I’m completely blown away by the filmmaker’s patience and poise throughout the making of this documentary. I don’t think I could have been that gracious and polite when dealing with such attitudes. After seeing this, I don’t feel any closer to understanding this kind of situation. If anything, seeing the WBC members as actual people (horribly misguided, brainwashed people) makes it difficult to dismiss them as merely monsters – an abstract idea without a face.

    The saddest part of all of this to me is the indoctrination of their children. I realize that as a parent, anything you teach your children can be considered “brainwashing” (even positive things), but this is just over the top. I’m surprised that it isn’t considered child abuse to raise children in this hate-based cult.
    Also, did Fred Phelps give anybody else the heebie-jeebies?. eeeckh.

    I applaud Louis Theroux’s behavior thoughout this whole commentary.  I can only imagine how frustrated somebody could get when trying to talk to these people about seeing a different opinion.  But Louis kept his cool the whole time, which is something that I find to be very admirable.  I hope I can have his patience someday.

    why would god need to lie to, confuse or otherwise mislead a politician into starting a war so that the country could be punished for not following the word of god?
    directly from a documentary filmed in your home…
    in the words of the pastor…
    “god put it in your [unintelligible] wicked heart to start that war, that’s the message that we’ve got at the funerals of these dead soldiers… god duped you… into starting a war so he could punish you.”
    why would god bait humanity into sinning?
    a purely theological question for which i am sure you have a perfectly reasonable answer…

My boyfriend, 22 years old, stage four brain tumor. Comes from a very religious family, and he’s so hard working and honest. That’s not something that should be rejoiced. These all-hating, close-minded, judgemental people with be the first in hell if the world ever ended. and God will be dancing for joy.

       1) Imagine being the family member of someone laughing at the corpse you once knew and the funeral.
      And 2) Who the hell is that lady to sit there and bitch at people? That makes her no better than anyone. In the Christian religion, she is doing everything opposite the Lord wants her to do and she feels superior to others. Thier religion is completely fucked. My brain just cannot grasp this completely disgusting…well, whatever you call it!
      3) You think after everyone yells at them from the road, the girls would realize they are quite alone in their picketing.

    Whats the point of sharing “Gods” word if its not the words of God
    They say they’re baptist but from the way they are acting they are nothing but stupid people
    They are putting a bad name out for the baptist..
    Your belief and what you believe tie in together but what you believe is different then your belief
    They are not Baptist’s they are people that think they are  spreading Gods word
    When God says do unto to thy neighbor as them self
    That means it doesn’t matter what denomination,belief or what they believe  in you are to love them

  • Jibbajado

    I kinda laughed when that kid got smoked in the head with that drink from Sonic. Yeah its a kid, but he learned a lesson that you are associated by the people you hang out with…the more often this kid gets his ass kicked the more likely he will be to leave this fucking horrible, horrible group later on. Its the kids I feel really bad for because a lot of them don’t have a choice. Besides, religion is fake. I don’t understand how someone can still believe in a god this day and age. They can’t come up with any physical evidence that a god exists but science can prove many things on the contrary to what the bible and many other religious scriptures say. Anyone who seriously acts out and follows these readings or interprets them to their ideal ways, are in my mind some of the most dangerous people on this planet. Stop slowing down evolution!! If you want to be religious that’s fine, but don’t preach to anyone but yourself and people you know who already “believe”.

    while i find nothing wrong with killing, i cant stand hypocrites. and what it seems like now is that you hate someone, because they hate someone else. it’s their personal belief, and no matter how wrong it is, we have no right to kill them for it. while they may be extremists, as long as we can contain violence and they don’t physically hurt anyone, what’s the point in stooping to their level? we see them as they see gay people. while to us it may be wrong of them, to them it is wrong of us. while they may cause harm, killing them would just lead me to believe i should kill you. although i am not a gay-hater and you’re not gay, you’re defending them as i defend these people. if the violence is contained, they have every right to voice they opinions, this is America. I personally believe they are wrong, but not to the point of death. until they physically harm or endanger someone should they be punished. justice is one thing, but being a hypocrite is another. killing all these people, while many of them have caused harm is wrong. not all of them are violent. it’s a prejudice, and you’re resorting to the traits of someone you’d like to kill.

      just because someone doesnt physically hurt someone doesnt make what they are doing right. they dont deserve to live, and are doing nothing to help mankind. this is a wonderful example of how stupid we’ve become. they dont deserve to live, it should be a privilege, not a right. you’re just like them, and an awful excuse for a human being.

    engineering’.
     
    Time for  ‘LOUIS and the EUGENISTS’

    We  can see it now —-

    “SO tell me, can  we now admit that your carefully designed ‘Sexual Liberation’
    op of the past 5 decades was really ‘Elimination via Sexuality’?”

    “When we say EUGENICS, does that imply YOU-genocide? —-or ME genocide?”

    “Should we STOP seeing covert sterilization as a horrifying act of soft-kill,
    and START seeing it as a kind of a very long and highly practical joke?”

Not to mention a peaceful one at that! Seriously though what is their pure hatred against gay people!? So far I have heard nothing other than their hate for gay people when they should focus their mother fucking anger on real evils of this Earth such as murderers, pedophiles, rapist, gas prices, media advertising against children!!!!! Gay people are so not an issue. The issue is that these people think they know but last 3 times people talked of an Apocalypse befalling on us hasn’t happened and bitches, I’m still waiting!!!! Truth is, no one knows if it’ll happen just as surely as no one knows when Micky D’s will bust out the McRib again. And that Jill girl, if she’d gone to my school I would have kicked her in the vagina just to make sure that if she does get married and her husband finds her broken hymen, he drags her ass out with that damned long braid into her very own streets of Hell for breaking the rules.

I dont agree with any of what theyre saying, i am more intrigued as to what they have chosen not to say. I think the little son (boy who gets hit by a cup) is truly the honesty and window into the reality of their society that they have created and protect; which supports my reasoning behind some sort of bizarre human empathy towards them. Caus really, its hard to hate such a misguided young boy.

      it’s the kids the kids the kids that are suffering and are marked for life by this. there has to be a way to get them out of there- has to. has no one tried, i wonder? this is the worst kind of abuse- indoctrination like the kill camps they send the muslim kids to. sins of the fathers visited on the children, indeed.

      yes, louis should have interviewed the ones who have ‘fallen away,’ yes, he did make a doc that guaranteed some sensationalized viewing, stirred up emotions. but it gave him a name and cred. maybe now he will delve into the more serious issues involving the planet.

      and no, my previous post wasnt about ME hating–what a waste of life- but about their religion of hatred. they worship hate. what a miserable excuse for a LIFE. where do they find beauty and love?

      I dont imagine Phelps will have a funeral, right? Or they would be ‘worshiping the dead.” ha.

    WBC is nothing more than a tool of Satan to promote the rejection of religion (specifically Christianity), by one small group giving millions of other Christians a bad name. The essence of Jesus’ message is love (the only “religion” that has the message of love for all & grace/forgiveness through Christ), & I can’t think of any other explanation for why a supposedly “Christian” group would promote violence & hatred. Unfortunately human nature is what the world sees.

    And this is why I live in Canada. Very, very few people go around outwardly hating on other people. This is also why I don’t agree with organized religion. Form your own beliefs as an adult, and keep it to yourself.

    They’re filling their children’s minds with hatefulness. I feel bad for the kids because from the moment they’re born, they are bombarded with shameful propaganda, and have no opportunity to think for themselves- let alone to question this “religion”.

    They can believe what they want, I just wish that they would open up to the outside world, and realize that other people have emotions, too. Fred Phelps, as their leader, should be able to answer questions about the religion and know more about other religions instead of assuming they are all wrong.

    Props to Louis Theroux. He must’ve had a difficult time keeping his cool during this. If I were him, I’d have been yelling at them for their ignorant, unreasoning, and blatant disregard for other people’s beliefs, and emotions.

    I’m fifteen. I don’t know much about religion, but that is not God.

    well if God hates fags or homosexuals, why did he create them in the first place?And as far as the Bible goes, Jesuschrist said love your neighbor as you love thyself. He didnt say: love your neighbor (except if he is homosexual) as you love thyself. Westboro Baptist Church is just deranged.

    This entire topic is very sad. I feel sorry for them because their own hate has blinded them from the rest of the world love. I do agree though when the mother says that we live in a lustfull world because we do but to categorize every person together is ignorance at its finest. Also the fact that they could not answer simple questions that he was giving them and instead decided to dance around the bushes that go back to the same old thing that this entire video shows. The only thing that we can do is to just simply ignore them because they feed off of the hate from others whether they realize it or not which in turn increases their egos and makes them feel all powerful. Ignore them and the world will move sweetly.

    Has anyone watched the sequel to this documentary (America’s Most Hated Family In Crisis)? It is on this website … Louis basically goes back to see the members 4 years after. Several members of the church have already left by then. There’s that Steve Drain guy, his daughter Lauren left. And Libby Phelps, too, who is Fred’s granddaughter. He interviewed both of them. Honestly, I was very surprised to see Jael was still in the church. When Louis first interviewed her, i thought i saw conflict and unresolve in her eyes. I know it was there. She’s even more outspoken in the sequel almost as if she’s trained herself to stick to what she’s been brought up with. Honestly, if Libby can change i hope the younger ones can change too. to me, their extremist views is just religion GONE WRONG.

    I do not support their views, neither do I think that we should ‘hate’ them..by hating them, aren’t we in essence the same as them? they hate what violates what they believe and if we hate them because of their view that violate our beliefs..then we are no different…the key word here is not big words like hate or love or education etc, it is simply just respect..

    You may not support maybe the war on terror for instance, but to picket a funeral..c’mon…and as people who know better, wanting to picket his funeral or torch his home etc, would be a testament that what he believed in actually lives on..by the actions of those who act in violence (physically or verbally etc) when confronted with something that violates our belief…

    I was uninformed and was under the impression that westboro baptist was some gigantic mega church from the south, i didint realize it was basically a bunch of nomads in a back yard.

    I think ultimately the worst case scenario for these people is to simply ignore them. Obviousally theyre disgusting and offensive but think they thrive off attention and causing a stir, and i think thats their main agenda. Every minute of coverage they get seems to stoke their perverse fire. In the back of their minds im sure they are afraid for the day where they are disregarded and ignored.

    And if you ask me the louder someone protests something more often then not youll find they are involved in the very thing they oppose. I bet somewhere in pastor phelps life he struggled with homosexuality or at least the thought and maybe sexual confusion. These seems to come up in churches and politics alot and seems to be shared by the family

    I am a religious person (one of the religions they condemn) and this is not how a responsible, thoughtful representative of any sort of institution should present themselves. Their case destroys credibility for everything they claim they represent, the most important perhaps that of GOD. Im not even going to quote their “popular slogan”, but ignorance runs among us all only to deliberatly provoke us. I find it helpful to remember not to let my emotions overwhelm me. This kind of subject matter presented in this fashion is an opportunity for growth. Remembering that you are better than the condemnation they place upon others can make a world of difference in real life. Its not like im going to do anything except make myself mad sitting here watching a video on my laptop, but if I ever get the opportunity to affect real change in my community, wont I know better?
    Unfortunately I did read the comments and I found that people who are regurgitating thoughtless hate have many people “liking” their comments. I usually dont comment on comments, but I hope this isnt an actual representation of peoples attitudes or ideologies. If it is, im glad I dont live in your country.

    I think one of the best things you could do is to “Shame them” When they’re out in public demonstrating,or what ever it is they do, laugh at them,heartily,directed right at them. 
    Ridicule them mercilessly,make them the point of tasteless jokes constantly.If this were done on a national and international level,round the clock,at every level, i’m sure they would be effected by it.
    These people go to the super market, they’re laughed at. They go to the DMV they’re
    laughed at.Every facet of they’re lives in public they’re laughed at.Put bill bords up on the high ways in the area. Have you seen these clowns,and a picture of the group. If these people were laughed at every where they went, at everything they did,all of the times. I’m sure things might change.It is hard to take care of business when everybody laughs at you.

    Man, I felt so bad for the kids who have to go to school and be alienated everyday. It’d almost be better to be home schooled than be confronted with the real world and how unlikable their message is day in and day out. When the older girl choked up and when the little one got hit with a slurpee– it’s easy for the parents to hang out together and ignore the world, but the girls who can’t even go get coffee? They know that if they tried to make an outside friend their family would alienate them quickly with their message. It seems like if those girls met some nice people outside the family they’d be nice, but they’re trapped in that life and isolated.

    This horrific “Church” should have ALL children removed and placed in NORMAL society to at least be given a chance to heal & try to retain somewhat of a Normal Life.
    I personally have no religious belief but I certainly don’t hold a grudge toward people who do. We all need to find/gather hope from somewhere but being a part of such a miserable bunch of No-Gooder (or I dare say No-Godders) is just plain outrageous..!!

    What Theroux seemed to dismiss without sufficiently careful consideration is whether the interpretation of the Bible promulgated by the WBC might, in fact, be a biblically and theologically justified perspective. The orthodox Calvinism that they hold represents a living tradition. The biblical conservatism is well represented in America and throughout Christian history. A theonomic approach to penology is a minority, though legitimate, perspective on the relationship between the Old and New Testaments. And “homosexuality as an abomination” is a clear deduction from the Scripture if one holds to inerrancy. Additionally, freedom of speech, religion and assembly are Constitionally protected. Although I am an atheist and disagree with both their “doctrine and life”, I don’t believe it is true or intellectually honest to assert that what they maintain lacks biblical authority, historical precedent, or logical coherence. Culturally out-of-sync? Without a doubt. The fact that they still support higher education for their children is a source of hope. Education and respectful dialogue – rather than hatred and bigotry in kind – is the only possible path forward.

  • A different perspective….

    I am thankful to my future husband (God willing) for sharing this movie and his insight with me. I have watched the film, certain parts twice, and I can see their (WBC’s) point. Homosexuality is forbidden in all of the monotheistic religions. I can see that they want to be warners. Everything does come from God. There are valuable messages and lessons in this documentary for those willing to see them. As for what they are saying, their basic message is the harsh truth, although at the surface, it comes across as harsh, rude, mean, and disrespectful. Most people wont like the message and will be offended. However, Freedom of speech is a right given to americans by the constitution. Picketting, protesting, being the ‘louder voice’ is the ‘american way’. They are not doing anything wrong, they are exercising their right. Who are any of you to take their right away? We are a democracy not dictatorship (well we are supposed to be anyway). The Phelps are doing what they know to do. The point is, they are doing something, instead of sitting back complaining! I have respect for the fact that, despite what they have to deal with, they aren’t giving up saying ‘oh well we tried’. Do I agree with the way they are presenting their information? No. Do I believe their Egos are playing a part? Yes. Do I believe Louis filmed this with an agenda? Yes. He might have covered the story far better if he had been objective in learning the truth. Maybe spent less time trying to convert them. Of course this is my opinion. I would have liked to hear from those who left the church. God will judge us all individually on who will go to Heaven or Hell. It is not for them (wbc)or any other human to make that call. They can warn of the possibility or probability. According to Scriptures the only unforgivable sin is associating partners with God. Which unfortunately, is exactly what WBC is doing. May God guide them to the truth, Ameen.Now in saying that i have very close family members who are gay/lesbian. I struggle with this issue myself. I know its a sin, yet they are my family. How can I be happy and satisfied with the thought of the possibility of someone I love going to hell? I can advise, but to what extent without risking my relationship with them? The thought scares me to say nothing. The members of WBC dont seem to care if people hate them or if kinship is broken, they are going to speak what they believe is the truth, and leave the rest up to God. Like I said earlier, there are lessons to be learned here. They aren’t doing it perfectly, they are humans after all, but at least they are doing something.

    • DD

      You know what, the irony of freedom of speech is that it’s a terrible idea, people are so wrapped up in their own ignorance to have that right, a racist who is stupid enough to believe that knowing one black person means you know them all should NOT have the right to preach their hatred, all we have ever done is hate and in order to advance as a society and a species we can’t allow those seeds to be planted.

      I have travelled the world and lived in several different countries, I speak 3 languages and have been integrated into several other cultures and you want to tell me that these guys are entitled to blast off angry, hateful messages based on some bitter old man who can’t face the questions that attack his beliefs. He is a coward, not some strong guardian of the truth, he wouldn’t be able to have a conversation with me, he’d repeat the same lines that he taught to everyone else. You think those people are a good source of information on how the whole world is based on a life lived almost entirely in a closed-up brainwashing family.

      The truth is they don’t know the world, not even close, they read the bible and saw hate, mostly from the old testament, which, if you are a CHRISTian, is before the story even started. I am not deeply religious, I have decided not to follow the words of men hoping to see the words of God, I have translated texts myself and know how it can come out.

      So, I conclude:

      Those people have caused pain to everyone around them and even to their own children who are visibly dying inside through their denial, some already left and some of the others will quieten every question in their minds. 

      They have a book that has been translated so many times, that an old man read and focused on preaching hate to man, the ridiculous nature of this is that it says VERY clearly “LOVE THY NEIGHBOUR”, they are not following the bible, they think they are the only holy people on earth, when the truth is, they are just ignorant people.

      If they were even capable of arguing properly you could take them down using the very book they claim to follow, it’s all contradicted later.

      That aside, on a logical basis, nothing they are saying is even logical, let alone “the truth”. 

      They are ridiculous, and if you think that them seeing the bad things in this world and hating on everyone for it, painting them with the same brush, is insightful then you are clearly as closed minded and deluded as them.

      Seeing their point in this doesn’t require an open mind, or the ability to think out the box, in fact, it’s requires quite the opposite.

      Ridiculous, 1000000000000000 times, ridiculous.

      Free speech can go f**k itself if all it does is protect people who are too stupid to even have tongues whose goal it is to destroy our society.

      They say they want to warn people, here’s my last point just so you can see that the heart of their operation is flawed:

      To Warn means to give advise or council to help avoid something.

      Did you ever hear them say that someone could stop it? No

      They aren’t warning people, they are gloating to people that they consider to be less than them based on a fucked up, misinterpreted belief.

      Don’t turn over to the dark side.

    Ok I feel that this needs to be pointed out. Regardless of the extremist and radical views expressed by this group. Louis was also very out of line at many points of the documentary. If he truly wanted to learn about their beliefs he should have been more open minded. I know it would have killed me not to say anything, but its the documenters job to bit your tongue, and not call their beliefs ‘weird’ or talk to them in a derogatory manner. Their beliefs made me sick to my stomach, but so did Louis’s behavior.

  • Ina

    Omg, nobody of them ever answers a any question. And when Louis Theroux conered them with his questions (what happenes everytime), they say ‘I don’t wanna talk about it anymore’. They don’t even TRY to justify their thoughts, they just state them. Weird, they’re not really good in selling their cult. They just sound like some brainwashed by their leader, who can’t answer ANYthing. Even their signs are illogical. What is the message exactly? All bad in the world is caused by being gay? Seems like the old preacher guy is trying to overcompensate 😉

  • Rachel

    I wonder if the Westboro Baptist Church would stand together so strongly if others were kind to them, in spite of their erred ways? If they had anyone but each other, would they continue to hold these views?

    • Belteshazzar*

      i thought that aswell at first, but after watching the recap 5 years later i think its nearly impossible, even if u come at them with kindness, they are the ones who make the first attack. i saw the head felps woman berating a woman before she had even finished her question to her, for being overemotional and so full of rage she was shaking, in actuality the woman simply had M.S and left the scene in tears. they see everyone outside their personal church as hateful hellbound sinners and unworthy of their friendship, its sad realy, there beliefs perpetuate their hatred of others which feeds the hatred at themselves of the outside world.

    These people have absolutely no insight about the heart of God.  And it is upsetting to me, as a Christian, to see this kind of behavior.  God’s love is all-encompassing, His forgiveness is all-encompassing, His inclusion is all-encompassing.  How sickening that these people have perverted His love and interpreted it as a way to be cruel and hateful to others.  I don’t know where they will spend eternity, since God is the only One who judges that…but I can’t imagine them going to Heaven unless they repent of such deeds.

I think every single appropriately aged (as in adult) person in this INSANE church should sit down, smoke a shitload of pot and group off for a few good old fashioned orgies. You know? Just get it out of their system so they can all wake up afterwards; as if from a dream, and realize that up until then they had epitomized all that is most foul with narrow-minded religious groups and have a good laugh at how outrageously, mind-numbingly, inhumanely stupid they used to be. From here they would be able to progress into a 21st century mindset in which one embraces people, regardless of creed, race, or sexual preference and allow one’s fellow human beings to go about their own peaceful lives. Free to be able to do and think as they wish so long as it doesn’t impede on others in an offensive or negative way. I realize a lot of what I said is some pretty hippy dippy happy go lucky shit.

  • Meghna

    One big question I would like to ask this ‘cult': I am going by Wikipedia here (Since I am not a Christian), but wasn’t one of Jesus’s own treasured disciples was a prostitute called Mary Magdalene? Didn’t he clean her of the demons? If there was a redemption for her, why not for us who are apparently ‘sinning’ because we believe in Homosexuality and sexual relationships. And, isn’t cursing others a moral “don’t” as well?

    Now, my views: It is not necessary that all relationships before marriage are adultery. Even amongst the Hindu, the religion I belong to, adultery is a big no-no. But I don’t think homosexuality or pre-marriage sex comes in that category. Love is love, no matter where it exists. If you are cheating on someone, that means you are willingly And the basic foundation of any religion is love and kindness, something which these people fail to spread.

    Third: Disrespecting anyone’s views is seriously sick. It is not just these people, I also say the same for the assholes who show the fingers or heck, try to run down the children involved. What people think, they think. What they believe in, its their belief. Every person’s idea of what heaven and hell is different, and we are not the ones to decide where we, or anyone else for that matter, goes.

He was following and unquestioning to the values he was raised on in the same manner as they were, neither of them were sensibly trying to seek the truth in eachother, yet trying to determine or show how their views are above or more righteous than the other’s…. and the thousands of people who watch this video will get nothing from it, because they’re the exact same.

    You know I really think that some of them seem to be really nice! The fact is, they are completely brainwashed. They only spout back what has been forced into their heads as children. I really enjoyed the part where the girl who is in college started talking about “Robert”. The boy that she “didnt remember”. That girl will never forget if some guy wanted to take her on a date. After all those years of resistance by society, there is a guy who wants to give you attention. lol she will never forget. Another point, a lot of their beliefs can be construed that way. The bible does preach a lot of these do not’s and as a result this hatred for those arise depending on who is interpreting.

    This has more to do with fear and psychology than religion. When children grow up only feeling accepted by their parents when they follow “rules” perfectly, all others who do not follow perfectly are equally deserving of the hate and judgment that they received from their overly-strict parents. Inside each of those poor people they have so much brokenness and fear. fear that causes all-or-nothing thinking (like how the mother thinks holding hands will most definitely lead to fornication). But they can’t see that they are reacting out of human brokenness and fear. Instead they claim they are just doing what they are supposed to be doing.

  • Asshole

    I’ve watched both documentaries on this family/church trying to figure them out, and I think I have an idea now. As annoying and obnoxious and completely wrong as they are, they see what they are doing as an “Act of Compassion” in the same sense that the Anti-Smoking campaigns are forcing people to look at pictures and videos of people dead and dying from possible smoking related diseases. The ideology is different, but the manipulative methodology and message is the same, “Keep living the way you do and this will happen to you”.
    When is it OK to make people feel ashamed and fearful for choosing to live the way they do? If the excuse is Self Destructive Behavior, then that is also exactly what Phelps believes the rest of the world is doing in their judgement.
    As hard as I try, I can’t see how to find fault with one, yet condone the other without smelling the stench of hypocrisy whether the rest of the world agrees with me or not.
    As much as I dislike and disagree with the Phelps, their philosophy, and their methods, they have forced me to re-think some of my own judgements.

      basil…you are just a slave of Satan but you are too blind to see it.

      The Phelps family does not represent Christianity anymore than you represent someone who is knowledgeable about the origin of the cosmos.  Your inability to even spell correctly is a demonstration your education is limited and thus you have not been exposed to greater knowledge.

      Our cosmos has order, complexity and design and if it all happened by chance none of that would be consisent. 

      You talk about ridding the world of religion?  That has already happened and if you had studied Germany in the  30’s or 40′ or Stalin or some others you would know they tried to rid the world of religion and the only thing which changed is millions lost their lives.

      The cosmos screams of the existence of God but you are so blinded by your own bias you can’t see the miracles and beauty of the world God created.  The unbelieving world wants to explain away the existence of God by Evolution, and the Big Bang and other theories but they  are so ludicrous it is incredible anyone can even give them thought.  

      If you want to explain to me how the cosmos began I would be happy to hear it. 

      • Johnny

        You talk about education but then you go on to scrutinise evolution and the Big Bang. I myself and not sure about the presence of a god, but there is much more evidence supporting evolution and the Big Bang. Have a look at some of the work they are doing at CERN. They were able to demonstrate the Big Bang on a much smaller scale. Also, you mention the Nazi’s destroying religion… They were in fact trying to eradicate a single religion and then various other groups of people, Christianity was still very prominent in their society around this time. Religion has been a catalyst for so many wars and atrocities that it is impossible to fathom. I’d love to hear about this greater knowledge you’ve been exposed to…

    What lovely people! It’s too bad that that anti-gay stuff can’t be edited out of the Bible; but hey, those were fragile dangerous times when it was written, without much medicine or technology, when plagues, wars and earthquakes could wipe out whole civalisations at any second; the race needed nuclear families to multiply in order to survive. 
    America sure is a Godless, murdering, imperialist, icon-worshiping, Bible-thumping nation, full of people trying hard to do their best, like the Phelps.
    Shame about the old guy’s homophobia. Shame he worships a book that justifies it.

  • http://www.facebook.com/cherylawson Cheryl Lawson

    I’m watching this after having watched the documentary “Brainwashed by the Westboro Baptist Church”. The big sign I see that these church members are brainwashed/programmed is their inability to stop smiling. They smile when it is not appropriate to do so, which shows a disconnection from their true minds. The smiles are not true smiles either. They are more like smirks, much of the time.

    • http://www.facebook.com/greater.celestin Greater Celestin

      Could a caveman rationalize what you yourself do on a daily basis for example? The same goes for you. You have no knowledge of what you are talking about. Therefore you can’t understand what they are doing in the church. You only see it from an outside perspective and it looks crazy. The number of individuals who believe in God has now become lower than the ones who do, but this doesn’t mean that God doesn’t exist. In fact it is the contrary. It is human nature to not want to submit to a higher power. This turns people away too. Plus, the requirements to do this might seem strict for some. The bottem line, is that God exists. Jesus is the savior for mankinds sins, but without acknowledging him as your savior you won’t go to heaven. Anyone can die at any time. If you die with your sins you will not enter heaven. You will go to hell.

  • silvermoon

    seems to me all everyone says is how bad hate is and ultimately admitting to not having a solution. Eradicating them is illegal, and to everyone who says to stop hate all we have to do is love more, I suggest hugging a nuclear rocket. Seriously, these people are traitors to their own nation and own country, and they should be on trail. People like these are maliciously instigating anti-state revolts, and in all honesty, I believe their citizenship and civil rights should be revoked, and they should be expelled from the country, as it’s obvious they hate it here, I suggest to the Middle East – let’s see how their picketing will go for them there.

    it makes me very sad to watch this and see “christians” speaking god’s word in hate. don’t you remember??

    love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, it is not puffed up. ~ 1 corinthians 13:4

    you shall love your neighbor as yourself ~ galations 5:14

    and be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as god in christ forgave you ~ ephesians 4:32

    and walk in love, as christ also has loved us and given himself for us, and offering and a sacrifice to god for a sweet-smelling aroma ~ ephesians 5:2

    let us love one another, for love is of god; and everyone who loves is born of god and knows god. he who does not have love does not know god, for god is love ~ 1 john 4:7-8

    and
    you shall love the lord your god with all your heart and with all your
    soul and with all your mind and with all your strength. the second is this: you shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ there is no other commandment greater than these. ~ mark 12:30-31

    I know the bible says God killed a whole city of people comitting homosexuality .i have friends that are gay. I dont understand if its a sin?, then why do they always say they were born that way. Maybe it is a sin the actual act itself but if you are gay nd do not have gay sex then you arent sinning. It could also be a psychological thing .it is so confusing..some things in the Bible could be changed by men through the years.i personally think some cases may have something to do with bad spirits tempting and messing with your thoughts or demonic influence. Would repent each time.

    • Johnny

    I thought the last scene with the girl in the car was the most poignant and tragic. You can see in her face and her nervous laugh that she’s struggling with herself. She’s trying to bury the truth somewhere deep inside: she knows that there’s so much more to life than what she’s experienced in this prison of a family, but she’s terrified by the thought of abandoning the only people who have ever been kind to her. Her stories of trying to live a normal childhood when the outside world hates her are heartbreaking, and whenever Louis suggests she opens her mind she hides behind the religious rhetoric again to avoid appearing like a doubting sinner in front of her family. Such a beautiful, confident girl with her mind and life stolen away from her.

    Interesting thing about hate… it eats away at the one that hates. It creates stress in the hater while the person that is hated goes on with life generally unaffected by that hate.
    Another interesting thing about hate is that it has the same opposite as love, which is indifference.
    Why would someone bother to hate anyone that they did not care about? Perhaps Phelps and clan have some other issues like fear of their own feelings regarding sexual interests? In my experience Gay haters are attracted to men but fear that feeling.

    That doesn’t mean that everyone that fears/hates gays is gay also…. but it does raise some questions about why they give a gay person so much power? So much power that they spend a unusual amount of energy and time thinking about gay lifestyle?

  • ilovgod

      That would be too sad. No questioning that they’d shun him and have him be homeless. Even if they said they loved him.

  • Michael

    In his haste to try to “reach,” (hit on?) Jill Phelps, Louis missed the chance to talk to the people the church had shunned–Fred’s 3 other children, and the rest of them. Their perspective would have been much more valuable than another trip to Jill’s house to ask her out for a coffee. It was kind of pathetic when she said, “I see right through you, Louis–you’re a mocker and a scoffer.” Wasted opportunities because he was blinded by the pretty one.

    That said, still a courageous and pretty well-made doc. Even if Louis and the rest of us are going to hell.

  • AnAthiest

    Atheism = Freedom

  • Aria

    All I wanted was someone to ask them to prove their claims, because all they’re doing is taking someones whack statement and acting it out to be true without even seeing it for themselves. So, believing in something.

    They’re similar to Scientists who push theories to be true, like Darwin’s theory of evolution. He couldn’t prove it, hence why it is called a theory, yet some people take it as a actual fact.

    I don’t think some people fully understand the definition or the meanings of the words they’re using. I am learning everyday being someone who used to be very ignorant and a ‘know it all’ towards the language I speak.

    And where did I pick this attitude up form? Where we ALL have to attend under duress… school.

    Therefore, its not all their fault. The schooling system does great to teach people not to question anything… for instance, I’m sure all of us went through this. Teacher asks a question. You put your hand up, then answer. The answer turns out to be wrong, children start heckling you. And if you ask the teacher too many questions, they will either ignore you or tell you to be silent.

    So if you think about it, we have been going through this from the age of 6 – either your early 20’s or late teens. I don’t know about you guys, but this kind of creates a narrow minded person who is actually intended to conform to the Governments wishes, hence why we’re all in foreign debt and people still continue to think they’re ‘free’ and destroying the very place that sustains us for some paper that is actually worthless and not even ours. Its all privately owned. And this actually makes us all slaves.

    Wao, I completely went off topic to an extent haha.

    My point is… that they do not know what they’re doing and I don’t know why people are taking mental asylum escapees seriously.

    BBC here’s a topic. What is the Central Bank and who owns it? And is it true that they are above our laws and have created laws for themselves and have their own private law enforcement. Oh, and that almost every nation in the world is in debit to them, therefore making us the citizens slaves….

  • Jeremy Gonzalez

    If this guy actually would’ve known the Bible he wouldve been able to make a much better documentary and a much better argument against these Radicals. This is not Christianity no where in the Bible does it ever say that God hates anyone. He loves all of us. Homosexuality is a sin yes but all sin is equal and if you believe in Him he will save you, specifically says in the Bible that if you call upon his name and know that He is the one true God that He will forgive you. Also no where in their church service did Pastor Phelps even talk about the Bible.

    When as there ever been a war not associated with religion, Religion is all about anger and violence dating back to when the scriptures where written the proof is in the same book you have your faith in.

    This documentary clear shows how people twist words from the bible for their own ideology and it is seen in other religions.

    I
    don’t usually make comments on these websites but I watched Louis Theroux, Most
    Hated Family in America last night. It
    made me feel very angry to see these people picketing funerals of men that have
    lost their lives protecting their right to have free speech and to worship in
    their chosen church. They seemed to find
    joy in conflict and hurting people, to me it doesn’t seem very Christian to be
    sadistic. I found it frustrating when Louis had anything
    constructive to say they called him stupid or silly because they couldn’t come
    up with an effective argument against his logic. I thought his patience with them was amazing
    especially when they kept talking over the top of him. My parents are Catholic and Anglican, they
    thought we had a right to choose our own religion when we were older. I feel privileged to have been given that freedom
    as I feel should be everyone’s right. Their
    young children don’t appear to have any real understanding of what they are
    doing and had to be prompted. They are putting them in the front line to be
    abused by others for their own personal views which is extremely sad. As for the younger women, at that age I
    thought I knew everything too, life can teach you some pretty rough lessons and
    a moral soap box is the hardest place to fall from. Personally if these people are what represent
    heaven I would rather take my chances and go to hell along with everyone else
    they imagine will.

They need to read what Jesus said in Matthew chapter 5 about loving and blessing your enemies, do not judge, love the sinner but hate the sin and call no man a fool (as Louis was called) just to name a small few. They themselves will find out just how much they have sinned and displeased God on their judgement day but unfortunately that doesnt stop them now. I call all christians to rise up in prayer against this evil group.
