Westboro To Picket Isaac Hayes Funeral

17 08 2008

Why won’t these people leave those who are in mourning for their losses alone. I find this so very sad and it makes me angry.

Ridiculous.

Just this once, I wish the Scientologists would do the right thing and protect the family and friends.

“I, Governor [insert name], of the great state of [insert state], am pardoning all those involved in the severe ax handle clubbing delivered on the date of [insert date] to those members of Westboro Church picketing the funeral of [insert name].”

Don’t know if that would fly or not, but that is a nice thought to consider.

It makes no sense that this church would attack him because he was in the music industry. This has got to be an attach on the Church of Scientology. I met Isaac once. He was helping minorities with a reading program in Miami.

Who put these people in charge to pass judgment on Isaac Hayes.I’m sure that they also do some thing that they don’t want to be judged in a similiar manner.No man has NO right to condemn another.These same holier than thou get on their high horse and are the biggest hypocrites around.

That was a very stupid comment, to say about someone. I don’t care what a person does, we aren’t the judge of them, GOD is, so whoever wrote such a comment you need to worry about where you will be spending your eternity. You dídn’t know his heart, inspit of what you seen in his image.

I too agree with a majority of the people who have responded. It is sad that this group of people are coming in the name of the Lord and saying that God hates Isaac Hayes, or anyone else for a matter of fact. God does not hate people, God hates sin, any kind of sin. I most point out that they are definitely in danger of God’s judgment and wrath for showing hate towards God’s people. At a time when they should be compassionate towards the love ones of Isaac Hayes and Bernie Mac, they are showing hate and giving those who are lost an impression that Christians are crazy people that hate sinners. As the one person said above, God is the judge of us all. If you are indeed a Christian, you are suppose to love all people despite of their shortcomings. And to anyone who may be confused and thinking that those who are making these statements about “God Hates Isaac Hayes” are Christians, they are not. No child of God would act in such an ungodly way.

I find it very sad, when you have people who call themselves christians judging other people. It not their place nor their responsibility. This man was a father and husband as well as a friend to many. He deserves the right to rest peacfully and his family deserves th right to mourn him. I pray for the people at Westbro Baptist church. We are supposed to love one another as God loves us.

I volunteer now to handle the press release when The Rev. Fred goes to meet his maker.

(This kind of thing is what Anne Lamott says will make “Jesus drink gin straight out of the cat dish.” Sars Bunting once said that she has an image of Jesus crying on His bed at all the insanity “done in his name” and God trying valiantly to comfort Him with hugs and pizza snacks.)

I just saw your article on some church picketing Isaac Hayes’ funeral. These people DO NOT represent the majority of Christians, nor the Baptist flag that they’re waving. Judgement belongs to God, and Him alone. They will rot in hell for the anguish they’ve caused this family and others, by picketing a funeral. How about turning that misguided wrath around to the institutions that cause the music industry, or whomever they have a beef with, and picket them?? Because — THEY DON’T HAVE THE NERVE TO DO IT. God dislikes COWARDS, too.

While I think they’re right in their statement, they’re wrong in their method. There’s no love there.

I’ve seen these people in action. They are lucky to still be in the land of the living. I think the only thing that stayed our hand is that the picketers were young teenage girls. We couldn’t bear to harm them.

I think that its ashame that people misunderstand wat God is actually saying, and they only want it to benefit them…People quote scriptures, but dont quote the rest of them to get an understanding….and to go around and judge people, they are committing a sin theirselves..they dont dig deep at all…thats why God said he dont dwell with man always…because if he does…they would go stir crazy, and they are already special without him anyway….he said your understanding is not my understanding, your ways is not his ways, he gives you enough knowledge and sense to know whats good and whats bad….he also said as long as you have life, you have a chance…a chance to turn from your wicked ways…..God is a forgiving God…forgiving us of our knowingly sins and unknowingly sins….

Although, I don’t agree with homosexuality in any way, I say let GOD be the judge. We are all GOD’s childrent no matter what our sexual beliefs are. To judge is to make decision’s for GOD. Our place is to serve GOD and to witness to others so that they may know him as we do. Witness, don’t condemn! To protest is to Condemn, Westboro you have not been given “that” AUTHORITY. Respect the dead, no matter what their beliefs are, and let God render the punishment to sinners.

Ezekiel 18:30
“Therefore, O house of Israel, I will judge you, each one according to his ways, declares the Sovereign LORD. Repent! Turn away from all your offenses; then sin will not be your downfall.
Ezekiel 18:29-31

Matthew 7:1
[ Judging Others ] “Do not judge, or you too will be judged.
Matthew 7:1-3

Luke 6:37
[ Judging Others ] “Do not judge, and you will not be judged. Do not condemn, and you will not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven.
Luke 6:36-38

accidentally dropping rotten eggs on young girls would not harm them permanently. It would be a wake up call. I wouldnt do it because I’m non violent …but somebody might.

These jerks are trying to find someone to martyr them. The fact that they are using teenagers to do it only makes it more appalling.

These people arent christians, their a bunch of jackasses who never amounted to much in their lives. Those who wait for the famous to die, in hopes of getting attention by angering the people who adore them. In my view you a real coward to wait until someone dies to pick a fight with someone who cant defend hiself or believes in. Cant no one in that church determine who god has in favor cuz last time i read none of them died for any of our sins.

Ha ha ha, is this for real? Amazing! People are seriously the dumbest animals ever. I can’t even help but laugh at this crap. Poor Isaac Hayes’ family. My best wishes to them all.

It is sad. The Christians are protesting because he was a part of the Entertainment industry that “Promotes Fags” and what not. Scientologists were there to Promote their beliefs, even though if their beliefs were correct, Isaac would not have died… unless he went on to Higher OT research like L. Ron Hubbard… Which, if THAT was the case, it would be a suicide because you “Leave this Meat Vessel behind” I don’t think the Christians should protest, It SHOULD have been Anonymous that protested… Scientologists talked for 2 HOURS before letting his family talk!!! WTH!?

The bible clearly states “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ “. Sadly some people don’t understand what true christ love is. Issac hayes was a great man who made us all laugh. I don’t believe he was corrupt, I don’t believe he did anything wrong. Yes he believes in something different from my own beliefs. Let him be, It makes him happy. Protesting a funeral?!?! God doesn’t want you to make people miserable, but wants you to love everyone and everything. We are all his creatures whether we follow him or not.
