‘God Loves Gays’ Billboard Goes Up In Westboro Baptist Church’s Hometown: VIDEO

Gays

Last month we told you about the campaign run by the social media persona “God” to erect a “God Loves Gays” billboard in Topeka, Kansas, the hometown of the hate mongering Westboro Baptist Church. The campaign, which sought to raise $50,000 for this project, has been wildly successful, already raising over $80,000. On Monday, God’s billboard went up as promised. Mashable reports: 

Despite his omnipotence, God actually got the idea for the billboard from his social media followers. "One day I asked them, what would you like the LORD to do in the real world? Well, the top suggestion (with over 1,000 ‘likes’) was to put up a billboard in Topeka, Kansas that says ‘God Loves Gays.’ I shared this idea and asked them if I should do it, and the resounding answer was, ‘Yes please, for the love of all that is holy, yes.' “

The additional funds God raised will be used “toward ‘stretch goals’ of buying bus ads, donations to an LGBT suicide prevention organization, and the National Alliance to End Homelessness.” The Westboro Baptist Church meanwhile embraced the billboard, attempting to spin the story in their typical hateful way on Twitter and in a written statement:

"Thank God for that lying billboard! Every soul that sees it will either rejoice for the lie and the vain hope of afflicting the servants of God at WBC," Shirley Phelps-Roper, a spokesperson for the Church tells Mashable via email. "Or, they will sigh and mourn for that awful sin and all the parts of it, knowing that every single soul that weighed in with money or words, in favor of that lying billboard, will stand before God in the Judgment, so very ashamed. Knowing also, that when they stand before God in the judgment, it will be TOO LATE for repentance, and eternal torment will follow."

Meanwhile, Lamar Advertising, the billboard company who sold the space, had a few reservations about the billboard according to God:

"They seemed a tad nervous," He writes. "Thus far they have only let Me purchase the billboard through March of 2015. I wanted to purchase the full year. I also wanted to investigate other bigger billboards around town. But before they’ll do that the billboard company wants to see if the community accepts it and likes it first.”

Lamar, however, insists, 

“We support the First Amendment right of advertisers and believe that it is in the best interest of our company and the communities we serve to accept advertising copy openly. We do not accept or reject copy based upon agreement or disagreement with the views presented. We are firmly committed to our copy acceptance policy.”

Q Salt Lake also reports that should the project reach $100,000 in funding, God will put up another billboard in Provo, Utah.

GodLovesGays

God loves gays. It's true. And tight white tees. You probably wouldn't know given the hate spewed by the funeral-protesting Westboro Baptist Church, which is exactly why God, well, God's representatives over at Facebook, have started a campaign to create "God Loves Gays" billboards. The goal? Spread a positive message of support in Westboro's hometown of Topeka, Kansas. Over $40,000 have been donated thus far and you can help spread the love even further.

Gay Star News reports:

‘God’s’ followers pledged the funds in just ten days, and ‘God’ now plans to buy more billboards with the message that ‘God loves gays’ in other parts of the United States if he can raise further funds.

Supporters will be rewarded with bumper stickers, limited edition t-shirts and posters saying ‘God loves gay’ signed by ‘God’ himself.

Around 1,200 people pledged to fund the campaign with donations of between $1 and $75 for the total package of rewards.

Head over to God's crowdfunding page to donate now!

Unintentionally Hilarious Ad Targets Houston's LGBT Non-Discrimination Ordinance: LISTEN

HoustonMayorThe Houston, TX-based coalition "No Unequal Rights" has created a radio ad in protest of the LGBT-inclusive nondiscrimination ordinance that the city council passed this May.

The fearmongering ad, containing a story delivered by a  'McDonald's worker', tries to instill fear in the public with the spectre of a trans woman exposing pubic hair and stuffing a bra in a women's restroom.

The ridiculousness of the story combined with the theme from "The Young and the Restless" may cause you to do a spit take.

Listen and laugh, AFTER THE JUMP...

British Grocers Fortnum & Mason Celebrate Pride With Subtle Grammatical Joke

FortnumMason

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Who knew an apostrophe could be so queenly? Brit grocers Fortnum & Mason, apparently. After decades of association with the British royal family, the posh, 150-year-old grocery store shed its image of stately majesty for an ad in Gay Pride magazine in the lead up to London Pride this weekend. 

Stephen Fry took notice and, appreciative of the grammatical expertise, tweeted an image of the ad with the comment: "See @Fortnums advertisement for Gay Pride magazine this week. Note the apostrophe & that hot bit of crumpet, phwor!"

Well played, F&M. Well played.
