A Christmas message from Fred Phelps and Westboro Baptist

Kansas church seeks to join Washington state holiday display fray

Those that know me know I am against religious displays in government buildings. Religion has a place and time but the State Capital building is not it. Putting religious displays in such places will do nothing but open a Pandora's box. Well now its too late the box is open and inside is a steaming pile of shit named Fred Phelps.

According to Spokesman-Review reporter Rich Roesler, the first part of Westboro's proposed message:

"You'd better watch out, get ready to cry, You'd better go hide, I'm telling you why 'cuz Santa Claus will take you to hell. He is your favorite idol, you worship at his feet, but when you stand before your God He won't help you take the heat. So get this fact straight: you're feeling God's hate, Santa's to blame for the economy's fate, Santa Claus will take you to hell."

Congratulations dumb asses that is going to look great next to the nativity scene that you just had to put there. When it comes down to it the Capital Building belongs to the taxpayers so they have just as much right as anyone else once you set the precedence.

Looks like the hallway is getting crowded:

The Westboro Baptist Church's message would be near a Nativity set, three signs mocking atheism, and an atheist sign that celebrates the winter solstice, while also taking a shot at religion as "myth and superstition" that enslaves minds, all in the state Capitol's third-floor hallway.

The Westboro request is under consideration by the state Department of General Administration, which also has a request for a display depicting "The Spaghetti Monster" and "a Christian woman in Bellevue who wants to erect a sign offering blessings on all people."

"Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster" is a parody of the Kansas education-board decision to teach "intelligent design" as an alternative to Darwinist evolutionary concepts in biology classes.

Also under consideration is a request for a "Festivus" pole, a reference to the mock holiday "Festivus for the Rest of Us" popularized by the "Seinfeld" sitcom in the late 1990s.
