Westboro Baptist Has A New Target: Little Girls & Their Lemonade Stands

I think we would all agree that there are few groups of people on earth that are more un-Christlike, heinous, callous, thoughtless, and despicable than Westboro Baptist “Church.”

Protesting funerals will get you that sort of reputation.

But apparently Fred Phelps and company aren’t satisfied with being one of the most un-Christlike, heinous, callous, thoughtless, despicable group of people on earth.

They want the top spot all to themselves.

By picking on 5 year old girls and their lemonade stands.

From Huffington Post, here’s the little girl running her “Pink Lemonade for Peace” stand.

Members from the group apparently attempted to call the local police and later stooped to yelling profanities at lemonade drinkers.

    I’ve always known that lemonade stands run by kindergarten girls were the source of our society’s ills.

    This, as you stated Zack, is a new low, but it is not surprising. Sickening, Saddening, Disheartening? yes. Surprising? No.

    It seems that they are fully representing a church of “self-will run rampant.” Well done Jayden!
