What Is Your Opinion Of The Westboro Baptist Church?


For those who don’t know the WBC is a “church” in Kansas who pickets outside of the funerals of dead US soldiers and outside of concerts and sporting events with signs like “Thank God for 9/11” and “Pray for more dead soldiers”. Example: http://www.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http…
They are not affiliated with any Baptist denomination and most Christians do not endorse their actions but what’s your opinion of them?

Why Does Christianity Have A Tradition Of Denying Science Instead Of Growing By It?


When Galileo showed that the earth was but one body orbiting the sun, they had a chance to say, “Wow! There is so much to creation than we thought! Whole other worlds! God is far greater than we expected!”
Instead they charged him with heresy and kept him under house arrest until he died.
When Newton worked out that Gravity and his own laws of motion were able to explain the movements of the planets instead of a god moving them, Newton even wrote how God could still fit into it. That in the absence of a material explanation for gravity, God may be responsible for it as well as sometimes, “resetting” the solar system to address a small instability issue he could not resolve at the time. The church could of thought, “What an amazing system! god has made the heavens predictable for us!”
But because this system did not rely on direct divine intervention, debate over this continued until the time of Napoleon.
Today, we have evolution. An explanation for the diversity of life and why it seems so well suited for all the environments and niches it fills. Based on the brilliant hypothesis of natural selection confirmed again and again not just by predictions of what would be seen in nature, but countless experiments on populations we select for traits in. Something that faces virtually no controversy among biologists.
To it’s credit, the church of old, the Catholic church has already bowed out of this battle. They are largely happy to accept evolution. And for good reason! Its elegance is undeniable. The way it connects us to all other life. The way our forms are a reflection of the more than three billion years of history our ancestors went through. It has so much more beauty than the idea that all life came into existence as it is now. Surely it would be a greater demonstration of the brilliance and creativity of a god than, “He breathed life into dirt.”
Yet about half the citizenry of the nation I live in deny it. What is important is not to discover how the world they believe God designed works. To uncover and understand all its elegance and how that could glorify God. What is important to them is that Genesis can be taken literally.
These were all discoveries Christianity could have embraced and used to become something more incredible. These were all missed opportunities for them. Why let these slip by?
