On April 27, 2011 an F4 Tornado ripped through Tuscaloosa and West Alabama causing widespread devastation and death. Those of us who lived through the storm remember the days following the storm and how hard it was for us to get back on our feet. Our recovery continues with Tuscaloosa coming back to life more and more each day.

Westboro Baptist Church is planning on picketing in Tuscaloosa on May 18, 2013. Quoting Directly from their website:

"Westboro Baptist Church will picket the University of Alabama to remind them of the wrath of God that visited them two years ago, wherein they did not have finals, and their graduation exercises were cancelled.

That whirlwind came from God. Praise His name for it, then fear and obey that God who is able to whip up a whirlwind on a dime! Call this time, between your last GodSmack and your NEXT GodSmack, space for repentance!

We saw the young man, a student from the University of Alabama all over the national nightly news describing the event, including this: "I opened my door, and there was the Wrath of God looking me in the face." He went on to describe the horrors of it, and the death and mayhem that came with it. If that does not teach you to fear and obey that glorious and wonderful name, The Lord Thy God, WHAT WILL?!

The duty of all humans is to fear God and keep His commandments! This nation will not, and you have added to your other massive crimes against God, this: Same sex marriage. God will not have it. You really "smart" University people should have offered a PhD in The Flood, and it should have included an entire semester on the last offense against God before he sent that flood to WIPE OUT the entire earth, except the eight who were in the Ark, to wit: Same Sex Marriage!

And as it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man. They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, and the flood came, and destroyed them all. Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded; But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all. Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed. (Luke 17:26-30.)

So, the take away points for today class, to wit: The Lord is coming! America is Doomed!"

This act is not an act of evangelism, but is an act of hate and an act of direct disrespect to the people of Tuscaloosa, West Alabama, and Alabama as a whole.  We the undersigned would ask that you come out pubilically and make a statement speaking out against The Westboro Baptist Church and their planned protest in Tuscaloosa.  

To:
The University of Alabama
Walt Maddox, Mayor of The City of Tuscaloosa
Tuscaloosa City Council
Speak Out against Westboro Baptist.

Sincerely,
[Your name]

      These people are not followers of Christ, they are brain-washing, attention-seekers who thrive off the pain and sorrow of others. They twist the words of the Bible to suit their own hate-filled messages.

      These people use the banner of the First Amendment to actively harm groups already suffering. They are cruel and inhumane.

      Campus is too liberal now. Don't need this kind of extremist influence on even one student. They hate America.
