"Launched in 1955, Phelps' church and his family have made a name for themselves by showing up at high-profile events, preaching their hate-filled brand of Christianity. They blame homosexuals for the destruction of America.
He describes himself as an "old-time" gospel preacher who says, "You can't preach the Bible without preaching the hatred of God."
Actually, he's right, if you mean the old testament. God was a vengeful bugger.
I hate it to the point that if God walked up to me on the street, I would spit in his face for being the reason behind more hate, violence, misery and suffering on this planet than any other single thing. To me, it is not just about a lack of belief; It is about my total rejection of and hatred for this so called "God".
This statement is unprovable of course, but IMO if god existed he'd be horrified at what the nutbars have done with religion. If there is indeed a heaven and a hell, most of the fundamentalists (especially the people you've quoted above) are going to get a very rude and unpleasant surprise when their judgement comes.
