Choose Pondering Westboro Baptist Church and Fred Phelps
Westboro Baptist Church has earned an unforgettable reputation for their virulently anti-gay pickets. Westboro has even stooped to picketing funerals to spread their hateful message.
Most people respond to this hate with more hate of their own, but through poetry, Pondering Westboro Baptist Church and Fred Phelps: 40 Poetic Reflections calls us to respond with understanding instead.
This work strives to challenge common reactions and to stimulate new thoughtful dialogue. As Deepak Chopra stated, "you cannot change a problem at the level of consciousness that created it", and thus, if we seek to change Westboro's behavior, we need to take the high road.
Preserving free speech, even the hate speech of Westboro Baptist Church, brings us closer to the God of the U.S. constitution and brings us inner peace.
