What Can the Westboro Baptist Church be Missing?

The Westboro Baptist Church is the group that protested at the funeral of the Marine.   The issue at hand, whether the protest is protected speech, seems difficult, but I’m inclined to think that it is protected speech.

But that is not the subject of this post.  I am interested in the logic of the protest message “If you want them to stop dying, stop sinning”

Seriously?!  If we became a 100% Christian nation and sinless then none of us would die?  Or none of us would die in war?  Or we would know no war?

I thought that in Christianity all people are, almost by definition, sinners.  So how could we be sinles

It is just absurd to think that our soldiers would suddenly become unkillable.

It must be that they mean we would know no war.  Certainly if we were all sinless Christians we would never attack anyone and no one would ever attack us.    Yeah, that must be it.
