How not to be a Christian

About a Westboro defector:
Read the whole thing. Look don’t hope for too much, there. They aren’t suddenly going to march in any gay pride parade. But she has recognized the very point I was hammering home to Shirley Phelps-Roper the other day, that if your religion involves telling a person a heartbroken parent in Newtown, Connecticut, that their children are burning in hell, something has gone horribly wrong in your supposed Christianity. It is simply inexcusably cruel to say that to a grieving parent and, by the way, not terribly constructive.
Some fine words from A2B. Emphasis is mine.
