Wait! God Hates Figs?
“Jesus noticed a fig tree beside the road. He went over to see if there were any figs, but there were only leaves. Then he said to it, “May you never bear fruit again!” And immediately the fig tree withered up.” – Matthew 21:19
Little Freddy Phelps and his tribe over at Westboro Baptist Church have it all wrong – and it looks like it all comes down to a simple matter of illiteracy (or maybe dyslexia)!
It’s FIGS that God hates – not (the hate-filled slang term for homosexuals.) Actually, Jesus was apparently a huge fan of figs. So much so that he just got angry with a fig tree that wouldn’t make fruit. So, he killed it… Naturally. (I mean – who wouldn’t? Right?)
Though, I’ll admit – as much as I can’t stand Fred Phelps or what his “people” stand for, a Christian friend recently made a great point: It’s people like Phelps who remind us all (atheists, christians, muslims, democrats) how fine the line is between having convictions and being bat-sh*t crazy! So, for that, Fred – we thank you!
