I might be one of the few, or only, people who won’t mind if Westboro Baptist church shows up at Cross Point this coming weekend to picket.
I have two reasons-
One: It will provide the people of Cross Point an opportunity to show grace. Westboro can witness what grace, mercy and love look like in real life, in tough situations.
Two: Perhaps one of them will turn around and get a grip on reality and see the truth and then go out and actively, lovingly, for the sake of the Kingdom, truly reach out and serve the ones outside the church. Maybe in doing so their “people whom God has cast into hell since you loaded this page.” counter in their sidebar would begin slowing down.
Pray for Westboro.
Pray for those being picketed that they would respond gracefully.
