An Interview with Jack Wu, the Westboro Baptist Church Member Running for Kansas State School Board

The common wisdom about the “God Hates Fags”-believing Westboro Baptist Church is that the congregation consists only of people named Phelps, that it’s all white, and that you can’t really “join” it.

Jack Wu can prove all of that wrong in an instant: He was born in Taiwan and began attending the church in 2008:

Jack Wu (Jim Barcus – Kansas City Star)

Oh. And he’s running for a seat on the Kansas Board of Education:

Wu’s campaign, small as it is, comes at a time when the state school board is expected to consider new science standards, raising the prospect of revisiting the evolution debate that consumed the board in 1999 and again in 2005 — an issue about which Wu has strong views.

Wu is well aware of the attention his latest candidacy has attracted and expects people to scoff at his beliefs. But he said his candidacy is not about being part of the political mainstream.

“If you’re mainstream, you’re going to hell,” he said.

His campaign website elaborates on his mission… and he gets right to the point:

My mission, in running for the Kansas State Board of Education, is to throw out the crap that teachers are feeding their students and replace it with healthy good for the soul knowledge from the holy scriptures.

Let’s be specific. Evolution should never be taught in public schools as science. Evolution is false science! God made the heaven and the earth and created humans from the dust of the earth! The very bad teachers that teach that men descended from apes via evolution need to have their teaching licenses revoked. Yes, students should be taught that God created everything.

Just to provide some context, even Answers in Genesis, the group behind the Creation Museum, doesn’t support removing evolution from school curriculums:

“Answers in Genesis opposes efforts to remove evolution teaching from schools. It is a major worldview that affects so much of society, and thus it needs to be studied,” said [AiG co-founder Mark] Looy.

There’s a possibility Wu could win the race if the Republican majority in the state just votes down party lines but his stances may be too extreme even for them.

To find out more about Wu, I asked him if he’d be willing to answer some of my questions for this website and he accepted. Below is our interview (with minor edits made for grammar and clarity):

You say you’re campaigning to oppose the teaching of evolution in schools… but hasn’t that issue already been settled, both in the law and in the scientific community?

Jack Wu: Consensus doesn’t equal truth and just because a whole bunch of people agree on something as stupid as evolution doesn’t make it a fact. We live in the age of Wikipedia, where anyone can make an edit on a topic of discussion, but who really controls the content on Wikipedia? The administrators and the bureaucrats do. They are kind of like judges. And you know there is such a thing as a good judge and also bad or corrupt judge that can be bribed and such.

Now in the end, God is the ultimate Judge of all the earth. And it’s his words and his laws that count. It is said in the scriptures that He judges the other judges. (Psalm 82:1).

So we go by his word in Genesis Chapters 1, 2 and the rest of the Bible where it says he created the heaven and the earth and that God formed man of the dust of the ground. That’s what the truth is. On the other hand you have evolution, a consensus of lies started by an editor named Satan.

Now while we are alive on this earth, we can and should actively campaign against the lies of Satan. We may possibly influence the judges of this earth also that they may act in our best interests and do what’s right and do justice. And if these earthly judges fail to follow God’s law and God’s judgments, then God will deal with them. He will also deal with those leaders in the scientific community that hate his laws.

Do you really think you’ll win this election? (Seriously.)

Wu: I’m optimistic about winning this election. And I’m prepared for it to go either way.

Do you consider your opponent [Carolyn Campbell] a true Christian?

Wu: No. What kind of a Christian reads the first two chapters of the Bible and then goes on to promote the teaching of evolution? A fake Christian that doesn’t really believe the Bible, the works of God and his mighty hand.

How does a computer science major become a Westboro Baptist Church Christian? Your history suggests you become a fundamentalist Christian *after* you graduated… were your religious beliefs and your college education ever in conflict?

Wu: It’s a work of God how any man or woman becomes a true Christian. A Christian may come from any walk of life “out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation” (Revelation 5:9)

Now I’m not a member of Westboro Baptist Church but what drew me to them was their zeal and passion for God and his words. They intrepret the scriptures plainly and and they don’t water down the truth or offer “sloppy agape” lies like fake Christian churches I’ve attended in the past. [Hemant says: Just to be clear, Wu attends WBC, but he is not yet a confirmed member.]

I’ll try to arrange this history chronologically.

I started reading the Bible [in] 5th or 6th grade and also attended so-called Christian churches. I also attended a private Christian school starting in 7th grade.

The more I read the Bible, the more flaws I saw in many church practices such as Christmas celebrations which match the pagan idolatry and customs described in Jeremiah 10. I grew up also in the time when Internet usage exploded and I had access to many Christian writers that warned against the dangers of things like Christmas and New Age Bible perversions.

I attended college to earn a computer science degree, not a religion degree. I thought some lectures (for General Education coursework) were pretty worthless because the professors taught notions contrary to the word of God.

Towards the end of my college years, I discovered Westboro Baptist Church one day through a post on an Internet forum. It was a link to a FOX News video and then I started watching a whole bunch of other videos about the church. Their doctrines actually made sense and they have Bible verses and passages to support their doctrines. God hates fags. (Leviticus 18:22). God hates sinners (Psalm 5:5). These are scripture verses that were hardly ever discussed at the fake churches I used to attend. Yes, sometimes they would say that homosexuality is a sin based on Leviticus 18:22 but they would never Ever talk about Psalm 5:5 because it totally trashes their “God loves everyone” lie. So after watching a lot of videos and becoming more and more convinced that these people at WBC were striving to serve the Lord their God with all their heart, I was determined to come visit them and see what they were like in person. I found and confirmed that these people at WBC are serious about serving the Lord their God in a manner that is acceptable, pleasing to him, and true to his word. Psalm 119:133: “Order my steps in thy word: and let not any iniquity have dominion over me.” WBC members set a good example for the rest of the world to follow, so I’ve stayed in Kansas to learn from their good example.

Do you support Westboro Baptist Church’s picketing of solders’ funerals?

Wu: Yes, WBC does a great service to those communities affected by a soldier’s death. WBC helps connect the dots from Point A, your rebellion and sins against God, to Point B, the dead soldier. WBC graciously warns the living to repent of their sin and to obey God and his commandments.

Does Westboro Baptist Church support your candidacy?

Wu: Many of the members have given me their support, and I’m very glad to have it.

What do you think will happen if you’re successful in removing that single topic from the curriculum? (How will Kansas schools change for the better, in your opinion?)

Wu: Students would be less attuned with the lies of Satan and they might actually think rationally and reasonably about cosmology, the order of the things God has created, and the accountability they have to God and their fellow men.

How has evolution education harmed you?

Wu: It filled my head with lies from Satan and men that hate God.

School board members obviously do more than just vote on matters of curriculum. What else do you think the Kansas Board of Education should do to make schools better?

Wu: Design programs that promote student health and wellness, warn against fornication, adultery, drug use, alcohol use, and obesity. The Kansas Board of Education should encourage all students, teachers, and administrators to obey the law and to behave as a good citizen of the land. So it’s not all about academic excellence but behaviorial excellence as well. The Board should emphasize good conduct.

Do you think atheists and LGBT students have the right to form groups at high schools?

Wu: No, sexual perverts like LGBT students should not form groups at high schools. Bestiality clubs should not be formed either. We’re trying to promote good behavior, not bad.

As for atheists, well normally you are free to associate with whom you please, and if you fools (Psalm 14:1) want to flock together, that’s your prerogative. But I don’t see the need for a high school to give an atheist’s club official recognition.

Tell me something positive about the Westboro Baptist Church that the public doesn’t know or understand.

Wu: The Westboro Baptist Church is a group of very sweet but serious people that have your best interests in mind when they picket to warn you that your sins are taking you to hell. Ecclesiastes 7:5: It is better to hear the rebuke of the wise, than for a man to hear the song of fools.

Wu ended our interview with a message for me:

And these words are for you Mr. Atheist!

Psalm 14:1 The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good.

Psalm 53:1 The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. Corrupt are they, and have done abominable iniquity: there is none that doeth good.

Thanks again!

I could go through the interview and pick out the problems with his statements, one by one — Equal Access Act, anyone? — but let me just end with this: If there’s anything we ought to take away from this, it’s that Wu shows how anyone can run for office.

Unfortunately, we live in a society where many science-supporters watch elections from the sidelines while conservative Christians actually campaign for the seats. If we took education as seriously as Wu does, then I strongly believe we wouldn’t be fighting battles over long-accepted and well-documented science.

    That is quite the interesting interview. Thanks for reaching out and doing this interview, you asked some great questions. It is always interesting to see the perspective and reasonings used by people like Mr. Wu.

  • Vukota

    Does anyone else think it’s a good thing that someone as crazy as Wu is running for this seat? As despised as atheists are in general society, I think even we rank somewhat higher on the likability scale than members of the Westboro Baptist Church. Supporting creationism means being on the same side as a WBC nut, and I’m sure that makes a lot of Christians very uneasy. Who knows, perhaps some of them will even reexamine their views.

    you would expect that someone who had done computer science at least had some understanding of logic, including that if any system claims both A and NOT A are true can support any deduction, and as the bible contradicts itself it therefore can support any deduction.
    And if the bible is to be followed completely, how come he doesn’t have a beard?

       It’s disturbing how many engineers and comp sci people are creationists.

      • http://truth-tables.com James Hotelling

         Even the parting words he gave raised my programming hackles. I mean, two instances of the exact same command, in the same file? What kind of a god includes that sort of redundancy in his work? Has he never heard of method calls?

        • Jrock Fanatic

          My big thing is this… I can’t -not- ask why an omniscient, omnipresent deity would have used written words,
          words which would need to be translated to other languages, then
          re-translated, re-re-retranslated and then updated to be comprehensible
          and compatible with modern day vernacular, instead of just beaming it
          all into our brains or souls or whatever to start with. The
          predestination stuff also just makes the case for why God is on par with
          a playwright who punishes his actors for performing his scripts. I have to commend the Westies for shoving all the worst parts of Christianity into everyone’s faces, including other Christians.

      • Coyotenose

        Yeah, I’d noticed the Salem Hypothesis even before I’d ever heard of it, and I don’t even hang out with engineers. It’s that pervasive.

        • amycas

           My boyfriend is studying mechanical engineering and I needle him all the time about the Salem Hypothesis.

      • http://www.facebook.com/abb3w Arthur Byrne

        I suspect the root of the problem is that achieving proficiency in most forms of engineering does not require accepting the general validity of the implicit
        philosophical discipline and methodology (science in one sense), merely accepting the particular
        resulting body of understanding (science in another sense) that is most relevant to
        the branch within engineering. (I’d call the anthropological practice a third sense between the two, which includes some activities that are not philosophically “science”, such as writing grant proposals.)

        In so far as it involves making design choices, computer science has the disadvantage of being a branch of engineering.  Worse, the underlying body of understanding most central for computer science is not so much science as mathematics — that is, not reliant on empirical reality as much as on nigh-platonic abstractions such as algorithms. As such, it is the “engineering” field least tied to understanding the “real world”. Balancing that, computer science has the advantage at the level of anthropological practice that it seems often associated with high Internet usage for recreation and research, which may tend to result in incidental high levels of exposure to the diverse ideas on the internet. It also tends to require a relatively high abstract reasoning ability, which seems to contribute to higher chances of religious-to-irreligious transition.

      • http://www.facebook.com/people/Adam-Patrick/100000027906887 Adam Patrick

        I’m a computer science major(and not a creationist) and know quite a few engineering students, and I have noticed this.

        My guess is that CS people see the universe and how it works as a giant computer program(I wonder if they think natural disasters are like bugs) and anyone can tell you that code doesn’t write itself.
        As for engineers, they may see it as a giant machine, and machines need people to assemble them.

        Just my guess, and I have no idea if those are anywhere close to accurate.

    You are a better man than I am.  I couldn’t dialog with a loony like this without calling him out on his craziness and incoherence.

    I did like the bit where he calls the hateful wackos at Westboro “very sweet” people with my “best interests” in mind.

    Unfortunately, in Kansas, this wackadoodle has a chance of getting elected and further degrading the quality of education in that state and in the country.

  • Octoberfurst

     Wu is a perfect example of religious fundamentalism taken to its logical extent.  He’s arrogant, self-righteous and judgmental. He’s “knows” he’s right and everyone else is wrong. There is no room for compromise in Wu’s world.  You’re either with him or with Satan. People like him are scarey. I cringe at the idea that this fanatic might be elected to the Kansas board of education.

    • http://www.flickr.com/photos/chidy/ chicago dyke, Blonde

       and how i wish democrats and progressives would wake up to this fact, and stop trying to ‘compromise’ with these people on matters of policy. they will never vote for anyone to the left of Atilla, they will never believe that progressives and liberals deserve equal rights, they will never recognize that people without a faith or of different faith deserve equality and freedom. pandering to idiots like this only emboldens them, while making supposedly liberal politicians look weak.

      Wu is just another self-hating homosexual who is no different than any attending an “Ex-Gay” or “Reparative” therapy retreat. I don’t think he really believes any of that shit, he’s just looking for acceptance and is most definitely AFRAID. The Phelps Phags see that and they know they can use this guy for their own gains. They’re creeps, social manipulators at the top of their game just like all guilt trippy religi-tards. You don’t need these assholes Jack, you need to learn to live with yourself and not give a flying fuck what anyone else says. Especially some wack0 like Shirley Phelps Roper.

      I was about to post this but you beat me to it!  Louis Theroux did a couple of wonderful documentaries on the Phelps.

       According  to the interview text, they didn’t yet..

      “Now I’m not a member of Westboro Baptist Church but what drew me to them was their zeal and passion for God and his words.”

      Did you see anything besides the title that suggested differently?

    • Archaeopteryx1861

      Ah ha! I commented below, wondering if this was the same guy that I saw in that documentary…

    • Devin Sexson

      I remember Wu from the second Theroux documentary on the Phelps’. I did recognize him as the boy who wanted to join the WBC. He’s a bit older now, when I saw him in the movie I wondered if he ran away from home to — shall I say, “join the circus”? 

      Note that Shirley did not give him an absolute, “NO!” Most cults will gladly accept anyone who shows a possible interest and attempt to snag even those who have no interest in joining. WBC is one of the exceptions. What Shirley did was made it clear that anyone who was perhaps less than 101% serious about becoming a member is weeded out beforehand. 

      Cults that practice aggressive proselytizing such as the Mormons, JWs, Born-agains, etc. have to pay the price, and that is a high attrition rate. Most converts will be gone within one year. 

      The WBC has a strict screening process, Jack Wu has to make it clear, and in no uncertain terms, that if Fred decides it’s Kool-aid time, Jack will drink that Kool-aid without a trace of hesitation.

    I like his  Ecclesiastes 7:5 quote, and how he automagically assumes that it is he and his ilk who are the wise, and not the fools. Is there not something about pride being bad in the Christian faith?

    “Consensus doesn’t equal truth” <–actually, scientific consensus is a pretty darn good indicator of a correct description of the objective real world.  The problem with scientific consensus is that you can only get it for a certain range of testable truth claims.  It'd rock if we could get really good science on a broader range of issues.

  • Archaeopteryx1861

    There’s a documentary on YouTube called “The Most Hated Family in America” or something like that, with a British journalist….I remember there being someone of Asian descent sitting in the church that the journalist talked to, and he said that he hoped someday to be allowed to officially join the church. Is this the same guy?

    Let’s be clear: Answers in genesis and all the other evolution deniers only accept that Evolution should be taught in schools because on that front they know they have been beaten to a pulp so their strategy is to try to form a false equivalency. To “teach the controversy”.

    Were the roles reversed, no creationist would allow evolution to be given equal time. How do we know that? The scopes trial. Almost a 100 years of history. This buffon running for the school board.

    Unfortunately, this cretin will not be elected, because even republicans hate the WBC. They are actually one of the few things were liberals and ultra conservative can usually agree.

    But I would love to see him at work in the district. It would place focus on the backwardness of all creationists and reveal them for who they really are.

    As an aside, I love how this imbecile quoted Psalm 14:1 and Psalm 53:1. I love how these intellectual midgets think that we atheists never came across those vile quotes before. 

    Can’t we scrounge together some sort of humanist bible with a quote like:
    “The fool hath said in his rotten brain, There is a God in the sky. They are deluded, they have done some good works and there are few that doeth good. But not because of the tales they believe, but because still they are human”

    I say give it to him, let him have a go at it.  As a matter of fact let all the crazy people do whatever they want in Kansas, then all of the sane people will leave and Kansas will fold into its self.  It will be one big state of crazy that no one will ever want to go to, except of course other crazy people like Ken Hamm, and Eric Hovind, Pat Robertson and so on.  Then maybe we could fence the whole place off like George Carlin suggested years ago.  The Phelps could be the leaders and it would become like a mecca for batshi**ery.

    Next…. because I am not exactly cast from the same mould as you…. wouldnt it be tempting to send the delusional Mr Wu a nice email when he looses with the header:

    Wu Defeated In Election:- Scoreboard reads – Satan 1, God 0

    I look forward to Mr Wu’s insane psychobabble excuses as to why Satan has more influence on the Kansas electorate than his God.

    Delusional minds like Wu were liekly the type of delusional minds motivating the Inquisitions.

    Every once in a while I feel like it may be a good thing for guys like this nut to get elected, so that america can start seeing this trend and react accordingly.

    Poor young man.   WBC probably will never let him join.  He is too Asian   He is too gay.  

  • Loudguitr

    I wonder if this mouth breathing knuckle scraper thinks we should stone people for working on the sabbath….

     I would vote for Wu, if I lived in your area.

    Holy shit… so that super effeminate sounding asian guy who was crying and begging to be let into the Phelps Phag Phlock actually got let in. Poor, poor guy.

    The fact that he supports the WBC picketing goes to show that his mind is already gone. Who on earth with some semblance of humanity in their heart would say its okay to picket and disrespect the feelings of the bereaved as WELL as the funeral of the deceased? Poor stupid idiot, he totally got brainwashed by this whole bullshit from WBC instead of using his common sense to analyse their twisted beliefs, oh wait maybe he doesn’t have any sense. I hope someone pickets his funeral when he kicks the bucket. I hope Shirley, Fred Phelps ‘s deaths get picketed too!

    • Deven Kale

      Well I sure hope they don’t. Nobody deserves to have picketers at their funeral, not even raging assholes like the Phelps or Rush Limbaugh (even though I hate to say it). You forget that funerals are not for the people who died, they’re for the friends and family who survive them. Those people did nothing to deserve that level of disrespect, they’re just there to mourn.

      Leave them alone, and go after the actual person who died. Make sure what they’ve done isn’t forgotten. Send a clear message to anyone that follows in their footsteps that their memory will not be an honorable one, but an example of how not to behave in civil society. Make sure that your actions have the proper influence on the right people, and don’t just act like a prick by disrespecting those who have done nothing.

      When did WBC say anything that is not in the bible?

    I don not know how else to state what will happen to sinners,do you?

      You’re talking to a bunch of atheists here, which means that we don’t believe in superstitions or supernatural things.

      We don’t believe in Santa Claus or the Tooth Fairy. We don’t believe in any sort of afterlife, which means no eternal punishments (e.g. no Hell/Gehenna/Jahannam, no Tartarus) and no eternal rewards (e.g. no Heaven, no Happy Hunting Grounds, no Valhalla, no Elysian Fields).

      We also don’t believe in any sort of deity, which means we do not believe in the existence of Jehovah/Yaweh/Allah, nor do we believe in the existence of Zeus or Artemis or Satan or Kwan-Yin or Odin or Horus or anyone like that.

      Saying that we’re in for some serious punishment because we’ve failed to obey your favorite deity is like saying that Tony the Tiger will be very disappointed in us if we don’t eat our Frosted Flakes: It’s utterly, completely meaningless.

        Based on that you should support WBC

  • Lord Incaros

    ….isn’t “Helping” people outside the church against West Boro rules or something? i thought they all WANTED us to burn in hell.
