Secularize This

Saturday, May 14, 2011

I ventured onto the website of Westboro Baptist Church tonight and they have an actual tracker titled "people whom God has cast into Hell since you loaded this page".  Their URL is and this is a rather presumptuous notion expressing that they know the exact amount of people damned to burn in Hell, I thought the Bible taught that God was the ultimate judge.  With this I see three scenarios; 1) Westboro Baptist has a court reporter in God's court 2) they operate the gates into Hell or 3) they're just plain wrong.  Let's play connect the dots here; most protestants, if not all, go by the King James Version of the Bible.  King James was King of England from 1603 - 1625.  In 1604 he ordered a committee to weed out any unacceptable books from the Bible, this committee was known as the Hampton Court Conference.  Seven years later in 1611, the final works of this committee was delivered to King James and has since become known as the King James Version of the Bible.  One of the books included in the King James Version of holy scripture is Leviticus.  Leviticus is the book that lays down God's law beyond the Ten Commandments given to Moses in Exodus.  Leviticus is the scripture that these nut jobs from Kansas use in referencing God's disdain towards the homosexual community because in Leviticus 18:22 it says that "Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind; it is abomination".  Now, the man that commissioned the new version of the Bible in 1604, King James, was believed to be a homosexual himself.  There were sayings in the day that "Elizabeth was King and now James is Queen" based on his actions in court and the relationships he had with dukes of the realm that historians concluded he had relationships with.  So, I ask you this; if time travel were possible and these radicals from Kansas traveled back to 1625 England, would they have picketed King James funeral procession?  On one hand, he was a homosexual, yet on the other, he reformed the holiest of scriptures that is widely used and misinterpreted everyday.  I would much like to see them picket his funeral only for the reason that they would be overrun by the people of the time, brought into custody, not for the protest but for witchcraft due to the fact of their devilish coloring on their signs and attire, and then imprisoned in the Tower of London.  And we all live happily ever after.  Also, Leviticus 19:27-28 states "Ye shall not round the corners of your heads, neither shalt thou mar the corners of thy beard.  Ye shall not make any cuttings in your flesh for the dead, nor print any marks upon you:  I am the Lord."  Mr. Phelps, I see no beard on your face and your head is neatly cut.  Do any of your followers have earrings?  I don't think that God would hate fags, good sir, I think he shudders at ignorance more than homosexuals, for he created us in his own image and to think that a God is ignorant is truly frightening.

By the way; 3,910 people were cast to Hell in the time I wrote the blog.
