As horrible as their views are, this group of people are definitely entertaining. Just the fact that they wrote long explanations about why God hates virtually every country on earth is heartbreakingly comical.

If you click on Mongolia, there's a banner which on one side says, "God sent the quake" and on the other, "Buddha is a fat whore."

ROFL. This is hilarious.

I see that God is pleased with Latvia and Kyrgyzstan. I now know where to hunker down. Wait... South pacific Islands are ok With GoD! I am out of here!

Oh drat.
The color code was not that God 'was not angry' at those locations, it is just that God's Wrath is 'coming soon'.

Damn Latvians. Could not hold it together.

And you know what their response will be to your mocking? the same response that christians have used throughout the years.........

Your just a bunch of mockers, you won't be laughing when God throws you into hell for eternity. Cite bible verse here, blah blah blah mockers, blah blah blah won't listen to sound doctrine blah blah blah we are the light, blah blah blah blinded by satan.

They can't be correct. If God is going to use bad weather to punish sexual sin, then the vatican would find its self in the middle of a constant tornado, ya know, cover up the pedophile stuff.

Yes I went there, but hey, the amusing part is, I could very well be correct..........

Nice try.
Criminal pedophiles infiltrating an institution that gives them easy access to children and the appearance of being 'above reproach' is expected and not a condemnation of Christianity or of the Church.

You are pulling a serious contortion to try to do so.

But that does nothing to detract from the fact that they could be ultimately correct as to the end result.

My issue, which I find funny, not mockery, is the concept of holding a sign calling buddha a whore or "Your Pastor is a whore!" and such. I have no idea where they get that stuff. It is highly humorous and I have no desire to silence them.

Only idiots will condemn Christianity due to such silly tactics disguised as warnings.

Well, they certainly have their Bible right!

1. God hates all those that break his law.
2. Homosexuals violate God's law
3. Therefore, God hates homosexuals.

If I may add my two cents, the group says "Priests Rape Boys" is an airtight case against the Catholic cult. However, this is a genetic fallacy that doesn't prove anything. Their "airtight case" is just a fallacy.

As with WBC. It is 38 people! These people are statistically nothing. Not a condemnation of the church as a whole to cite a couple of irreverent or criminal infiltrators.

I apologize for exaggerating.

"The 4,392 priests who were accused amount to approximately 4% of the 109,694 priests in active ministry during that time."

That is not 38. That is 4,392 RIGHT NOW. Of course, there have been many more throughout history.

That's kind of hard to believe, considering there's only about 40,000 Catholic priests in the U.S. You said "tens" of thousands, which is plural, so even at the bare minimum, 20,000, you'd be saying that half of all Catholic priests are child rapists, which seriously demands some evidence.

WBC = Westborough Baptist Church, the OP.

That is pure accusation, most of those are not confirmed in any way. Bandwagoning is a known phenomena in our culture, so is suing for profit. Those with multiple counts are nowhere near the 4%.

It is amusing so many whine about this. Criminal pedophiles infiltrate a church, for easy access to children and the appearence of morality. It was expected once pedophilia became a sub culture in America.

In addition to that, criminals who sue for profit were going to come out of the woodwork once these accusations hit the cultural mainstream.
Both sides filled with criminals. All of this is not a surprise but expected. This is all statistically insignificant.

"The 4,392 priests who were accused amount to approximately 4% of the 109,694 priests in active ministry during that time."

That is not 38. That is 4,392 RIGHT NOW. Of course, there have been many more throughout history.

WBC = Westborough Baptist Church, the OP.

That is pure accusation, most of those are not confirmed in any way. Bandwagoning is a known phenomena in our culture, so is suing for profit. Those with multiple counts are nowhere near the 4%.

People who are complaining to the police are not suing for profit. The Catholic Church has been covering up this scandal since the 1920s.

There are tens of thousands of Catholic priests raping children in America alone. It doesn't matter "how small the percentage is". These children are being destroyed by this insanity. Tens of thousands of children in America alone . . .

Tens of Thousands of priests in America alone!!!???
By all means please cite this evidence.

As with WBC. It is 38 people! These people are statistically nothing. Not a condemnation of the church as a whole to cite a couple of irreverent or criminal infiltrators.

The Vatican has been covering up this since the 1920s. The people affected by this are not "nothing".
Hush.

Even if what you are stating is 100% accurate (smacks of Dan Brown to me). Again, a criminal sub culture infiltrating the Church at every level, to gain easy access to children and the appearance of moral strength, is expected. The Church did not have security measures in place to deal with these criminals.

To further the problem with such an accusation, pedophilia for many years was taught by secular psychology as a mental disorder, merely momentary/not pathological and was curable, with a poor process of diagnosis. The Church handled it in a secular way rather than 'stoning' the offenders.

DSM originally detailed out a distinction between an act of child molestation as different than a pedophile.
A child molester was merely a person who acted upon a sexual attraction but was not predisposed toward children vs attraction toward adults.

Until the 1980's more detailed diagnosis and then further detailed diagnosis in 1987, the church's upper eschalon was trusting clinical psychology for the answers. In 1997 you saw people arguing for any attraction to children that is acted upon to be pathological and incurable. Think about that. Before it was believed to be curable, via psychiatry, that it was merely momentary decisions and now we understand it to be pathological and incurable.

The Church trusted secular psychology which caused the issue not Church Doctrine. Sexual deviants are described by the Bible to be pathological and should be terminated. Their termination should be a brutal and public process to detract such people from harming anyone else.

+1 for stoning people.
