    In the interest of pushing a few buttons–and enlisting you folks in helping us promote Hellbound?–over the next several days we will be releasing some new web banners that you can put up on your blog, Facebook page or the Westboro Baptists’ web site. (If you can figure out how to hack into it.)

    As you might guess from our first version, our banners will feature a rogues gallery of terrorists, mass murderers and dictators who would make almost anyone’s list of the “Five People You Meet in Hell.” All except the last one, that is. But more on that later…

    Incidentally, the idea was inspired by news coverage of Osama Bin Laden’s death last spring, which gave rise to several news stories like the one below, which expressed absolute certainty that Osama is in hell.

    I’m not saying Osama isn’t in hell (Who knows? And whose version of hell would he be in anyway?), and I’m certainly not condemning the all too natural feeling of elation and relief that people who were directly victimized by him felt upon news of his death.

    However, I do want to provoke us into re-thinking our tendency to rush to judgment about anyone no matter how heinous their crimes. As my friend Archbishop Lazar Puhalo says, “It’s always someone else who’s going to hell.”

    Best of all, we’re offering the banners in three sizes. Hint: The horizontal one should work just perfectly with Facebook’s timeline layout. Just a thought…

    To use a banner, all you have to do is right click on it and then choose “Save image as.” And if you do post one, please let us know!

  1. It looks like it might be an interesting movie, but your social marketing team is doing a weak job of marketing to thoughtful, intelligent people with this. “Provoke your enemies”? Surely you’re better than that.

  2. Did your friend Archbishop Lazar Puhalo(who had quite an interesting career to say the least) tell you about the Justice of Christ? Of Christ vs Satan? Perhaps Christ just imagined Satan, after all we know better now, don’t we?

  3. I also meant to say that the line “It’s always someone else who’s going to hell.” is very à propos indeed.
    Another example, I know of a Christian who was very convinced that the Bible was sooo anti-homosexual…until he found out that his brother was one…then his conviction changed. Go figure out.
