Where is God’s hatred?


by Emily Whelchel

Dear members of Westboro Baptist Church,

First of all, I would like you to know that I am writing this letter to you in love.  You can scoff at me and you can hate me, but I cannot bring myself to hate you back.  You don’t have to read this letter that I am writing to you, but if you don’t, it very well may be because you are afraid that my use of Biblical Scripture will prove much of your doctrine wrong… because I believe it will.  Will you read what I have to say? 

You profess that God hates Jews, homosexuals, America, and… well… pretty much everyone except for those who attend your church.  You picket funerals and teach your children to hold up signs that display graphic images and words.  If this isn’t correct, then please correct me.  You claim that the Scriptures say that God hates anyone who does not obey Him- anyone who disagrees with His law.  I hope you don’t mind that I’ve intensely studied the Bible to find what the Word says about love and I’ve come up with a few conclusions that contradict your own beliefs.
