Attack of the Biblots! Part Two

As some of you might recall, I wrote a post a couple days ago regarding Christian terrorist Shirley Phelps-Roper and the Westboro Baptist Church. While I was surfing the net today I found a surprising interview between Shirley and a wellknown YouTube enthusiast ‘TheAmazingAtheist’. And just like his name suggests, TheAmazingAtheist likely subscribes to the same sort of deductions about all things Religion as Cartman does in this photograph:


While I’m tempted to agree with Shirley in that I’m not sure what is so ‘amazing’ about this guy, I actually really appreciated this interview.
The ‘Amazing Atheist’ really brings up what I believe is a fundamental point about Christianity, that being: ‘Who ARE the ‘True’ Christians?’

According to the Amazing Atheist, if all Christians were to undergo a stringent, thorough, active reading of the Bible, they would likely adhere to the same belief-set that Shirley Phelps-Roper so adamantly, and often inexcusably projects to the American Public.

I don’t know enough about the Bible or Christianity to really say that I agree with anything that is said in this interview, but I think that it is an interesting spin on all the hype surrounding the members of the Westboro Baptist Church, and their spokesperson, Shirley Phelps-Roper. I also really appreciate how he actually gives the woman a chance to speak. Surprisingly, she actually makes a lot of solid points that could likely leave the most devoted Christian speechless.
Do I agree with what she says or the way she conducts herself? NO!! Absolutely not! I think she gives all good Christians, and good people the world round a bad name.

However, I am posting this video, as I think it sheds a lot more light on why these people are so forceful about their crusade against homosexuals, ‘wrong-thinking’ Christians, and the general American Public.

Lastly, omit the lame opening montage part of this video, it’s embarrassing, and when the interview concludes and the AmazingAtheist (aka: douchebag) begins his own rant, it is best to close the window at that point as well. He drops the f-bomb about 20 times (totally brilliant…not!), and not only makes himself look like a complete and utter fool, but totally discredits himself by acting so ignorantly. Up until “Final Thoughts”, it’s all good.

  1. These people are borderline insane, but they know their biblical shit.

    Has there even been a theocracy like she mentions? Christianity like most religions seems like more of a “Catch Up” or advisory theology. Either that or we’re in line for a pretty big catastrophe.

  2. Unfortunately, as much as they look like they know what they are talking about, they sadly misrepresent the message being put across in the Bible. She quotes scripture easily, yes, but the problem is she takes it out of context and puts a WBC spin off of it from all that her father has taught her and brainwashed her into believing. They throw around Biblical quotations like they’re candy on halloween, yet they don’t take the time to read the text before and after. Or take into account that the writer of that particular book, passage, or verse was talking to specific people at a specific time. So I can say with certainty that if a “true christian” took the time and read and adhered to what Scripture says, they would definately NOT act ANYTHING like the so-called “christians” at the Westboro Baptist Church. I’d disagree heartily that they “know their biblical s***”
