The controversial Westboro Baptist church says that Christians are to blame for “fag marriage” picking up so much steam in our culture lately. “But wait,” you ask, “don’t Westboro members identify as Christian?” Yes, but remember that they are also crazy.
The church, which is comprised primarily of Phelps family members and is considered a hate group, argues that mainline Christianity has made too many compromises on their theology which has lead to the rise in gay marriage.
In a YouTube video posted this week, Westboro member Steven Drain says that Christians struggling in a world that mostly accepts marriage equality need only look to themselves for the blame.
“What we mean is that mainline Christianity is chiefly to blame for legitimizing that filthy sin and elevating it to its status of acceptability in society,” Drain says.
According to Drain’s perspective, Christians unwittingly opened the door to marriage equality by accepting divorce, which “weakens” heterosexual marriage, by “erroneously preaching that God loves everybody,” by leaving out the Biblical story of the destruction of Sodom, which “they should know better than their ABCs,” by not warning sinners of hell, and lastly, by vilifying Westboro Baptist.
This isn’t the first time that Westboro Baptist has claimed that Christians are to blame for gay marriage, notes The Huffington Post. In December, Margie Phelps posted this tweet:
