Christianity Today says about 79.4% of adults in America (247 million) identify themselves as Christian. However, according to Christianity Today, there are more than 1,500 different Christian faith groups in North America.
The Westboro Church is one of those Christian faith groups.
You may have heard of the Westboro Church, a group of about 40 radical American, independent Baptists known for extreme ideologies, especially those against homosexuality, and its protest activities, which include picketing funerals of American service members and desecrating the American flag.
This Baptist sect’s first public service was held in November 1955 so they have been around for a while but not as long as most.
The members of the Westboro Church are sort of like free-radicals that cause serious life-style diseases such as cancer, heart disease and diabetes.
The US military veteran biker gang that the video features is the antioxidant to counter the free-radicals that attend the funerals of US military troops killed in battle.
To me, this is cool—that those Veteran bikers are there to keep the lunatics at a distance.
Do the math, after we subtract the Westboro free-radicals from the rest of the Christians in America that leaves about 246,999,960 non-members of this hate mongering so-called Christian group.
