Fox News Julie Banderas Takes On Phelps-Cult Hatemonger!


Fox News host to guest: 'You're going to hell!'

"You are the devil!" Banderas exclaimed to Shirley Phelps-Roper. "If you believe in the Bible, miss, you're going to hell!"

Phelps-Roper, who believes America's sinful behavior has resulted in God's cursings rather than blessings, was appearing on "The Big Story" last night to talk about why members of her Westboro Baptist Church of Topeka, Kan., protest at funerals for slain U.S. troops with slogans such as "Thank God for 9-11," "Thank God for IEDs (improvised explosive devices)," and "God Hates Fags."

"What would you do if you had a son in the military?" an outraged Banderas asked. "Would you damn him to hell as well? Because you're gonna join him there if you had a son!"

"I have eight sons and I have three daughters," responded Phelps-Roper, "and none of them would dare, dare fight for a nation who has made God their No. 1 enemy."

Banderas engaged in a heated, rapid-fire, name-calling exchange with Phelps-Roper, which included:

Banderas: "The Bible says 'the fear of the Lord is hatred of evil,' [from the Book of] Proverbs. 'Pride and arrogance and the way of evil and perverted speech I hate.' Perverted speech like yours: 'God hates fags.' You are preaching absolute B.-., and you know the final letter."
Phelps-Roper: "If you don't tell them that this nation is full of idolatry, full of adulteries ...

Banderas: "Full of insane people like yourself, ma'am."

Phelps-Roper: "You're proud. You're proud of your sins. You can't do enough sinning. You think 'gay' pride, bimbo. You have sinned away your day of grace."

Banderas: "OK, you are an abomination."

Phelps-Roper: "America is doomed. America is doomed. ... Before your eyes, missy, you're gonna see the destruction of America."

Banderas: "If America is doomed, then why don't you get out? Why are you in this country? Why are you an American? Are you an American?"

Phelps-Roper: "I am exactly where my God put me to tell you plainly, that you are going to hell, and there's nothing you can do about it."

Banderas: "Why don't you take your church to another country, then, ma'am? Thank you so much. You should not be proud to be an American, and thank you. Good-bye."

Last week, a Pennsylvania man filed a lawsuit against WBC for its "intentional and outrageous" conduct during and since services were held for his son, Lance Cpl. Matthew A. Snyder, who killed in a noncombat vehicle accident in Iraq.

The WBC is planning another protest tomorrow in New Castle, Del., at the funeral of Army Staff Sgt. Darren Harmon, who was killed by an IED.

Thank you Julie, you did GREAT! And thank you Patriot Guard Riders for all the work you do to counter this evil group of military haters.

Westboro Baptist Church group, Kim-il-Jung and John Murtha. Golly, the World is certainly not short of shitheads. Chrissie, did you decide to try to clean the bilge today! I am not criticizing, just seems your blog items today left me in the "lock and load, commence firing" mood. If someone is looking for renters for the basement of the outhouse these three fit the profile.

Good assessment Tom. I watched that whole interview, Banderas did good, I could never keep my cool like she did. Shirley Phelps-Roper exudes hate, she and the rest of the following are as rabid as any Taliban, and they call themselves Christian. Looks to me like all they are is a group of self serving hypocrites hiding behind the cross to enforce their twisted version of religious fervor.

I'm in love. Julie could have added this verse to the plate: Isaiah 5:20.

razOr she did a great job, I am so proud of her. That is a good verse to add.
