Twitter Bans Westboro Baptist Church: VIDEO


Ailing anti-gay listed hate group Westboro Baptist Church has had Twitter account @WBCSays suspended because the “church” picketed Twitter at the end of last year, reports Pink News.

The nasty “Christian” organization run by wingnut Shirley Phelps has become famous worldwide in recent years for picketing funerals, gigs, colleges, schools and just about everything else you can think of.

Recent “work” by the group includes an attempt to block same-sex marriage in Kansas and a picket at a Brad Paisley (above) concert last year at which the singer took a selfie with the hate group protesters.

Unfortunately, Twitter has allowed other Westboro accounts - @WBCSigns and @WBCSaysRepent -  to remain active.

In more positive news, as Westboro continues to come apart at the seams with defections and members getting some sense, in December of last year Shirley’s daughter Grace travelled to Jamaica to work with gay people who have been ostracized by society and made homeless.

Comedian Russell Brand Tears Apart Dr. Ben Carson's Anti-Gay 'Logic' - VIDEO


British comedian Russell Brand made a video criticizing Dr. Ben Carson — an anti-gay pundit who embarrassed his alma mater by comparing homosexuals to child and animal rapists.

While viewing Carson’s past interview clips, Brand hears Carson talk about “getting rid of political correctness and replacing it with civil discourse.” Brand then responds, “When people talk about political correctness, it’s not long before they say something either racist or homophobic.”

CarsonIn the same interview, Carson says that he only has a problem with gays redefining marriage, but that if gays want to call their unions something else, we can.

Oh wait, we tried that. They were called “civil unions” and they weren’t recognized as marriages by the federal government and were thus denied the “1,138 benefits, rights and protections provided on the basis of marital status in federal law.”

Brand adds that gay marriage stops personally affecting people the instant they stop worrying about it, because apart from worry, gay marriage affects straight people in absolutely no way at all.

Later, when Carson goes onto say that gays who want to call their unions “marriages” are like people who’d like two and two to equal five, Brand responds:

“By comparing a social and civil idea like sexuality to an objective system of signs like arithmetic… the only point about [math] is that it’s about definitive systems and symbols… if you apply that to social structures which are cultural and constructed then you’re saying that your opinion is as objectively righteous as mathematics, something is beyond morality and is absolute.”

In a later Fox News segment with Sean Hannity, Carson casually lumps gays in with the pedophile group the North American Boy Love Association and those who support raping animals. Sean Hannity then casually throws incest and polygamy into the mix, supposedly paraphrasing Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor.

“I suppose what they’re doing is they equate something that they personally dislike with other things they assume a larger category of people find objectionable,” Russell says.

Although Carson eventually offered a self-serving apology for his hateful remarks (largely in an unsuccessful attempt to keep from being ousted as John Hopkins’ commencement speaker), he continues to shill for the anti-gay National Organization for Marriage.

Russell Brand Offends Students with Gay Slur at Cambridge University Talk

Russell Brand offended some students during a recent talk he gave at Cambridge University, after using a gay slur to quiet the audience, the Varsity reports:

Brand"At one point he jokingly reprimanded the audience, exclaiming, 'Shut up you Harry Potter poofs!' While most in attendance seem to have found this funny, some have spoken out against the use of the term. The CUSU LGBT representative Charlie Bell said, 'It was a bit of a shock to hear that the word poof is considered an appropriate term to level as an insult, especially by someone like Brand, who models himself as the very model of a modern liberal... he should apologise unreservedly and immediately.'"

Russell Brand Interviews Two Westboro Baptist Church Members: VIDEO


Russell Brand brought two members of Fred Phelps' Westboro Baptist Church to his show to explain their anti-gay hate.

BRAND: "Have you considered that the Bible, like all religious doctrine, may be allegorical and symbolic to direct us toward one holy entity of love, as opposed to a specific litiginous text to direct the behavior of human beings? The Bible wasn't literally written by a cosmic entity. It was written by people."

WBC: "It was written by the holy spirit."

BRAND: "The holy spirit ain't got a pen!"
