Answer by *SDA 4 CHRIST* Romans 10:9 From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Westboro Baptist Church
The Westboro Baptist Church (WBC) is an independent Baptist church known for its extreme stance against homosexuality and its protest activities, which include picketing funerals and desecrating the American flag. The church is widely described as a hate group and is monitored as such by the Anti-Defamation League and Southern Poverty Law Center. It is headed by Fred Phelps and consists mostly of members of his large family; in 2007, it had 71 members. The church is headquartered in a residential neighborhood on the west side of Topeka about three miles west of the Kansas State Capitol at 3701 West 12th Street, Topeka, Kansas, United States. Its first public service was held on the afternoon of Sunday, November 27, 1955.
The church has been actively involved in the anti-gay movement since at least 1991 when it sought a crackdown on homosexual activity at Gage Park six blocks northwest of the church. In addition to anti-gay protests at military funerals, the organization pickets other celebrity funerals that are likely to get it media attention.
The WBC is not affiliated with any known Baptist conventions or associations. The church describes itself as following Primitive Baptist and Calvinist principles, though mainstream Primitive Baptists reject the WBC and Phelps.
Question by Ashley: Was anybody arrested for the Westboro Church bombing?
I’m writing a paragraph on this event for a summer activity for school, but I can’t find any information about anyone involved in the bombing. Who bombed the Church and did anyone get arrested? I found an article on the churches website about it but it doesn’t have this information.
I’m talking about the Westboro Baptist Church bombing that occurred on August 20, 1995.
