West Borough Baptist Church

I’t sure that you all have heard of the WBC. If not here is a video. This is only one of the parts of the documentary, but I warn it is difficult to stomach. I want to know what everyone thinks of these people? I can guess what most people will says: they are insane, they are dangerous, they shouldn’t be allowed to do that, etc. I want to get you thinking about something else, are the living up to Old Testament code? Their most prominent message is that God hates the USA because we have homosexuals in our society. According to Leviticus 20:13 “If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.”

*Disclaimer* In no way am I endorsing what these people are doing. In no way am I saying that what they are doing is right, it surely is not.

That being said, they are trying to live up to the Bible to a ‘t’. They do not realize that the Bible (specifically the Old Testament) is 2,000 years old. It is a collections of poems and stories to describe the way people lived in ancient society. Society has evolved, and the people who live in this society have evolved. These people are turning to things that ancient society did not do well. We would not use ancient medicine to cure the flu, cancer, AIDS, HIV, or any other disease. They are turning to ancient remedies that just do not work. ]
I believe that most people, religious or not, would agree that these people are preaching something that is not compatible with our society.
