Statement Concerning Westboro Protests

Westboro StatementOur church’s leadership was saddened to hear tonight that Westboro “Baptist Church” will be holding protests around the Quad-City area January 24-25. To be very clear, NLBC has absolutely no affiliation with Westboro whatsoever. New Life echoes the sentiment expressed by Dr. Albert Mohler, Jr., President of one of our denomination’s seminaries, that the late Fred Phelps and his Westboro cohort have become “infamous due to one central fact — he was a world-class hater. He brought great discredit to the Gospel of Christ because his message was undiluted hatred packaged as the beliefs of a church.”  Our church family certainly believes in traditional marriage, but we also believe in following Christ’s example of treating those with whom we disagree with love and civility.
