Westboro Baptist Church will picket at Mars Hill's Federal Way campus | Pastor offers doughnuts
Infamous for its stance against homosexuality and protests at military funerals, Westboro Baptist Church members will reportedly picket at a Federal Way area church on Sunday.
Westboro is targeting Mars Hill and Pastor Mark Driscoll "to picket the false prophet and blind lemmings at Mars Hill Whore House where they teach the lies that God love [sic] everyone and Jesus died for the sins of all of mankind," according to Westboro's website at www.godhatesfags.com. "You have caused the people to trust in lies to their destruction, and to your damnation. Shame on you for calling yourself the Mars Hill Church!"
In return, Mars Hill has offered to serve doughnuts to the protesters. In his blog, Driscoll writes:
"If you make it, we’ll also give you free copies of my book, Doctrine, so you can learn what the Bible says about who God actually is, and we’ll also provide fresh donuts and free coffee, along with smiles and chuckles. Sadly, I won’t be able to make the party. This false prophet will be at his son’s baseball tournament, enjoying time with his wife and five kids. Happy Father’s Day!"
