How Do They Not Get This?

Westboro Baptist Church, what do you not get about 1 Corinthians 13

If I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but do not have love, I have become a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal.
 2If I have the gift of prophecy, and know all mysteries and all knowledge; and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing.
 3And if I give all my possessions to feed the poor, and if I surrender my body to be burned, but do not have love, it profits me nothing.
 4Love is patient, love is kind and is not jealous; love does not brag and is not arrogant,
 5does not act unbecomingly; it does not seek its own, is not provoked, does not take into account a wrong suffered,
 6does not rejoice in unrighteousness, but rejoices with the truth;
 7bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
 8Love never fails; but if there are gifts of prophecy, they will be done away; if there are tongues, they will cease; if there is knowledge, it will be done away.
 9For we know in part and we prophesy in part;
 10but when the perfect comes, the partial will be done away.
 11When I was a child, I used to speak like a child, think like a child, reason like a child; when I became a man, I did away with childish things.
 12For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face; now I know in part, but then I will know fully just as I also have been fully known.
 13But now faith, hope, love, abide these three; but the greatest of these is love.

You do not love.  You do not love God, you do not love others, but in your arrogance you go about your own cheap agenda.

What does the Bible really say that God hates:

Scripture says in 1 John 4:20:  Whoever claims to love God yet hates a brother or sister is a liar. For whoever does not love their brother and sister, whom they have seen, cannot love God, whom they have not seen.

Then, in Proverbs it reads: 
 16 There are six things the Lord hates—
      no, seven things he detests:
 17 haughty eyes,
      a lying tongue,
      hands that kill the innocent,
 18 a heart that plots evil,
      feet that race to do wrong,
 19 a false witness who pours out lies,
      a person who sows discord in a family.
Proverbs 6:16-19


Acquitting the guilty and condemning the innocent— the LORD detests them both. (Proverbs 17:15)

Westboro Baptist, if there is anyone the Lord hates, it is YOU.  Repent and turn to Jesus.  Jesus never held picket signs, and just the opposite, loved and dined with the people you throw yourselves against.  One day you will see judgment, and I hope you hang your heads when you see the fallen soldiers and 'fags' that are dining with Jesus, when you aren't.  Their repentant hearts make them right with God, your hardened hearts will send you to hell.
