The guy is a total nutcase. He's the type that gives all Chrictians a bad name. Unfortunately, many take the worst example and automatically condemn the whole.
Well, I would agree to a point. Phelps is certainly insane. However, the thing about guys like Phelps is that their theology is actually more accurate than yours. If you got into a scripture-quoting match with a guy like him, you would lose. Liberal, moderate theology is bad theology. God really does hate gays and shell-fish.
Quoting scripture is one thing. Keeping it in context is something else entirely.
Agreed. In the context of 500 AD or 1000 AD, it made a certain amoung of sense to not realize that scripture is ridiculous. Now, believing in the bible is just nonsense.
