It’s no secret that Westboro Baptist Church (WBC) and I have very little in common theologically.
However, I was mentioned by them in two different tweets and I have no idea why. They have been re-tweeted a few times by other official WBC accounts and members.
The links are to sermons about the soul and it is just a person reading different passages about the different ways the soul is mentioned throughout the Biblical record. I’m never mentioned in them. Its bizarre that if this is a random selection that I was chosen; I mean of all the people on Twitter I was selected to be mentioned in a WBC tweet? Not more “high profile” Christian thinkers/pastors/bloggers, but little ol’ me.
For the record, I do not support, promote or condone the actions of this group. I am in no way affiliated with them. They are a hateful group that uses the teachings of Christ and the Bible as a weapon under the guise of “love” and “righteousness.”
I have tried to contact them to have my name and/or the tweet removed with no success.
So I guess my only recourse will be to hit the block button.
