  • No not all Baptist churches are li9ke westboro. They are more like a cult. They can call themselves whatever but I dont even believe they are associated with the baptists I know of.

  • No, not at all.
    The Westboro Baptist Church is an extremist group.
    I think most people would be upset about the fact that they call themselves a church or a religious group at all.

    There is nothing Godlike or Christan about them.
    They are ignorant, rude, unholy bullies.

  • I always felt like they were exactly what you said Laila- unchirstian like, ignorant and rude. I don't understand how htey think they are doing Gods will. God is loving and forgiving not mean and vengeful...

  • No way, their actions are embarrassing to Baptists! Literally everyone I know finds them absolutely appalling, hateful and dead wrong in what they do, including myself.......regardless of denomination.

  • They are not officially part of the Baptist Association any longer, I've read. However, that doesn't mean they can't still claim the word 'baptist' in the name of their group.
    I may speak out of turn, but I'm fairly certain any national association of baptist churches are jus
    t as horrified with WBC's actions as anyone.

  • I don't think there is anything Christian about them even! I don't know any other Baptist churches who believe and behave like this!

  • THey are a huge insult and embarrasment to the Baptist Christian faith of which I am a part of!

    I am ashamed of them.

    They can call themselves whatever they want, but it does not make it so! God calls us to love and care for everyone! And to show his love.

    They do the opposite of that and make me sick to my stomach!

  • No they're definitely not all like that.

    A lot of Baptists don't like that they affiliate themselves with the Baptist church at all.

    A lot of CHRISTIANS don't like that they associate with 'church' at all.
