Westboro Watch: Godsmack?


Those kooks from Westboro Baptist Church in Topeka, Kansas, are at it again. Actually, they’ve been continually at it, unfortunately. They’re the same ones responsible for the GodHatesFags web site and for protesting at the funerals of U.S. servicemen and women killed in service to our country. If you’ve read many of my posts, you probably already know something about them, so I won’t go into any additional detail about their past here.

Up until recently, the only time I’d ever heard the word “Godsmack” was in reference to the popular hard rock/metal band of the same name. Well, it now seems to be quite the hip terminology for these backwoods inbreds from the center of our country.

I have one question for these folks…Why are you so often taking the Lord your God’s name in vain with this term? I understand that you think EVERYTHING bad that happens on the face of the earth is God’s judgment for this, that, and the other but do you really need to so frequently blaspheme the God you claim to worship?

Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain; for the LORD will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain.  (Exo 20:7)

Here are a few examples of their particular brand of blasphemy…

  • Godsmack: Russian Rubble (in reference to a collapsed building in Russia)
  • Godsmack: Sinking Marines (in reference to the South Korean naval ship that recently sank)
  • Godsmack: Israel’s Woe (in reference to Israel’s current troubles in the Middle East)
  • Godsmack: Catholic Whore (in reference to troubles in the Catholic church)
  • Godsmack: Arkansas Shoot-out (in reference to two Little Rock police officers being shot)

These folks are famous for their hatred of homosexuals but they extend the same treatment to Jews, Catholics (as shown above), and basically just about everyone else but themselves. Apparently, they are the only perfect people on the face of the entire earth, God’s chosen people or some such tripe.

You better be careful, Westboro weirdos, you may be smacked next.

By the way, don’t you think their fearless leader, Fred Phelps, looks a lot like that evil preacher character from the 2nd “Poltergeist” movie? I’m just sayin’..
