One of 22 banned from entry to United Kingdom

One of 22 banned from entry to United Kingdom

 

 

On more than one occasion Fred Phelp’s behavior has caused me to wish Baptists had a Bishop in the hierarchy, or at least a hierarchy.  Baptists love and support the independence of the local church, so there is no one who has the authority to defrock the disguisting, or remove the tinfoil hat wearing idiot as long as there is some sort of group willing to gather in front of the pulpit.  

Fred is the guy with the “God Hates Fags” signs.  He is the guy that takes a crowd of like-minded [? mind?] folk to protest at the funerals of soldiers who died in service to our country.  He is the guy some folk think of when you say,”Baptist”.  Fred founded the Westboro Baptist Church where I am told a bunch of his relatives and a few odd ducks manage to miss the whole point of the greatest teacher of love the universe has ever seen.  

So the United Kingdom bans this guy, his daughter Shirley Phelps-Roper, a hamas terrorist , and  nineteen others from entry.  Here it is fron The National Post>>

Britain has blacklisted 22 people from entering the country, accusing them of fomenting hatred, glorifying terrorism or being capable of inciting ethnic violence in the country.

 A list of 16 of the people was published yesterday to “name and shame” them, according to Home Secretary Jacqui Smith.

 The list included U. S. conservative talk-radio host Michael Weiner — also known as Michael Savage–Fred Phelps, a U. S. anti-gay activist, Hamas lawmaker Yunis Al-Astal, Jewish extremist Mike Guzovsky, former Ku Klux Klan leader Stephen Donald Black, neo-Nazi Erich Gliebe, and several Islamic preachers.

The frustrating part of the story is that Fred gets international publicity.   Isn’t that the way it goes?  Some guy like Jeofurry  who preaches his heart out and works for flood victims, and spreads the love of the Gospel will be known by a few of us, Fred gets mega multi- media press. Where is the Baptist Pope when you need him!?  Can the name Baptist be copyrighted so there is a brand name recognition issue?  If you were trying to pass kookie-cola off as Pepsi a team of lawyers would have your lunch and the brown bag it came in. Mr. Phelps can use the name baptist and we have no recourse , and don’t get me started on that title Reverend that he uses. 

Fred will not land at Heathrow

Free speech is to be supported. Mr. Phelps is entitled to every wacko thought in his head, and to open up his mouth to speak such drivel.  My issue is that to use the name of the historically most tolerant religious denomination as he does, to speak for my Lord Jesus as he claims to , and to call yourself a minister of God as you are the world’s worst witness of His Love, does damage to the Kingdom that surely makes the devil smile.  Those of us who claim to speak for God as prophets, or speak the Word of God need to tremble in fear that not only what we say, but the way we say it, is pleasing in His sight .  There are far more glorious places than England to be banned from.

[…] Banned, but the real question might be is this newsworthy? […]

Free speech [and travel] issues needs to be kept in the news. how people view Christians is a concern to us all.

i dont think he keeps anyone from the kingdom who is meant to be there.

Comment by graceshaker

dont get me wrong – hes a nutbag – just not a very convincing deterrent.

Comment by graceshaker

I don’t know if you meant to make me laugh, but you did, and Amen!

Comment by willohroots

He makes me ill, but I did have to laugh at the idea of a Baptist Pope. It seems every religion and every denomination has nut-bags who make everyone else cringe.

Comment by Shawn W

Baptists collect these guys like flannel collects burrs in September. If nominated for Baptist Pope I will not accept, and if elected I will not serve. I would however enjoy being Baptist Bishop of Scranton. I do not believe the post is open, or existent.

*snicker* If we’re going to have a Baptist Pope it might as well be a woman. wink

Fred brings this old quote to a higher level…if thats possible?

“The Devil is wildly optimistic if he thinks he can make human beings worse than they are.”

Karl Kraus, quoted in Henri Blocher, Original Sin, page 11

Comment by Ike

Ike, remember Flip Wilson’s line, “The Devil made me do it!”? We rarely can attribute out short comings to Satan, actually, if he retired sin would still thrive. When we fell, we landed hard!
By the way, this shows or differing intellectual levels, you quote Kraus by way of Blocher, I quote Wilson by way of Laugh in. Please continue to post here, you make me look intelergent, entellagent, ahhh, you make me look smart! Thanks Ike!
