HategroupProfess to be Christian but are outside orthodox Christianity Westboro Baptist Church

Fred Phelps


The Westboro Baptist Church, of Topeka, Kansas, is a hate group masquerading as a Christian church. Lead by the Rev. Phelps, members of this church target homosexuals with messages of hate.

The church's website, www.godhatesfags.com, is listed as a hate site by many internet watchdog organizations. Its content is the verbal equivalent to what you would find in any other sewer. The same is true for its companion site, http://www.godhatesamerica.com/.

Needless to say, the despicable teachings and practices of this extremist group fall outside those of historic, orthodox Christianity.

This group of pseudo-Christians can be considered to be a cult of Christianity.
