On this week’s 2 Dudes and Podcast: The Westboro Baptist Church-Do they matter?

You may not know too much about the Westboro Baptist Church out of Topeka, Kansas, but if you follow the news, I am sure you may have seen them in action.  They are the “Christian” group that goes around and protesting the funerals of dead military men and women, homosexuals and victims of natural disasters in the name of God.  In their eyes, America is going to Hell!!

Does this group speak for all Christians?  Does this group give Christians a bad name in the eyes of the World?  Is this group a “hate group” just like the Klu Klux Klan?  Is this group just made up of a bunch of morons?  Does this group say and do the things you wish you could do and say?  Does this group matter?

With the death of Fred Phelps, the Church’s founder, this year, will the movement carry on with his daughter Shirley Phelps Roper or will this movement begin to fade away?
