Westboro Baptist Church is Like the Joker - They Just Want to Watch It Burn
I just read an interesting book, God Hates, about Westboro Baptist Church. WBC has a hyper-Calvinist, double-predestination, antelapsarian theology. This means that they think God damns - even hates - all sinners, and saves only a few for God's own inscrutable reason.
Westboro is not trying to change the world. They are, at most, trying to convince the damned that they are damned, but should repent anyway.
Like the Joker in Batman, they are not trying to save the world. Some churches just like to watch it burn.
