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.
