More on the Westboro Morons

In my previous post, I mentioned the Westboro Baptist Church and their unbelievable stupidity.

After wading through their website about as long as I can take, I found the final thing in their list of What the Bible says about other topics to be a bit contrived. Does this mean that the poor are evil? Sounds like it. We should kill them.

14. No Begging for Money

3 John
Because for his name's sake they went forth, taking nothing of the Gentiles.

Acts 8:20
But Peter said unto him (Simon), Thy money perish with thee, because thou hast thought that the gift of God may be purchased with money.

2 Pet. 2:3
And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you.

Titus 1:11For there are many unruly and vain talkers and deceivers, specially they of the circumcision, whose mouths must be stopped, who subvert whole houses, teaching things which they ought not, for filthy lucre's sake.
They also tell us that long hair is an shame for men (J, good thing you cut it). Where's Bartlett when you need him?
