Westboro Baptist Church

A episode of "Louis Theroux's weird weekends" where he spends a few weeks with followers of the Westboro Baptist Church. Painful to watch!

Love Louis' style - teeth hurt from the ignorance of his subjects.

What scares me about the Westboro Baptist Church, is whether they are actually more Christian than the moderated secular majority? What I mean is that they take the Bible as the word of god, and are taking everything literally... so are they actually being more honest than those that tend to pick and choose?

Of course their logic when it comes to troops etc. is ridiculous but doesn't the bible clearly condone homosexuality, sex before marriage etc?

That was Sam Harris's (AFAIR) point -- that the raving fundamentalists are at least following through on their belief that the bible is the word of god. The other christians just pick'n'mix to suit themselves.

Earth younger than previously thought, say scientists

....the evolutionists nightmare

Earth younger than previously thought, say scientists

...70 million years younger so "We estimate that makes it about 4.467 billion years old - a mere youngster compared with the 4.537 billion-year-old planet we had previously imagined."

Read this earlier.

First thing I thought was that it's never a good idea to put "earth" and "young" in the same headline.

I don't recall the passage in the bible where Jesus pickets a funeral with hate-filled slogans.

Just because some sects preach that the bible is all-important doesn't mean they're more Christian.

In the long-standing absence of Jesus Christ to pronounce on the matter, it's irrelevant whether they're more or less christian than any other group.

What's important is that they believe they're more christian. In this, they share a lot with most other christian groups.
