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!

Check Out This Comedian's Awesome Response to Westboro's Plans to Protest Robin Williams' Funeral: VIDEO

Hills

Australian comedian and late night host Adam Hills had some choice words for Westboro Baptist Church after hearing of their plans to protest the funeral of Robin Williams for being a "fag enabler" 

Said Hills on last night's The Last Leg:

"Firstly, regardless of your religious beliefs, you don't disrupt a funeral. A person died, his family are mourning. It's not about you d**khead. And secondly, if you really believe in standing up to those threatening the Christian way of life Westboro Baptist Church, how about putting your money where your mouth is, taking a direct flight to Iraq and picketing the people threatening to behead Christians if they don't convert! Surely that's more a threat to Christianity than the guy who said, "Do you think God ever gets stoned? Look at a platypus, I think he might!"... I will personally pay for every member of Westboro Baptist Church to fly to Iraq right now, I'll even fly you first class and pay the carbon offset..."

Westboro To Hold AMA On Reddit Days Before Protesting Its 'Fag' Co-Founder Aaron Swartz

Wbc_crap

The ever-hateful "God Hates Fags" brood of the Westboro Baptist Church has planned to protest the San Francisco headquarters of the online forum Reddit the evening of Tuesday, August 12 citing Reddit's "fag, atheist, thief" co-founder Aaron Swartz.

The group's protest announcement reads:

Reddit was co-founded by prominent member of Anonymous and cyber criminal Aaron Swartz. Swartz was a poster boy for this online community: a fag, an atheist and a thief. Last year, he killed himself when he was finally caught and charges filed against him for his crimes. Westboro Baptist Church held a public memorial at Time Square, praising God for exacting judgment on this proud sodomite.

While the WBC may know Swartz as a "fag," Swartz was actually bisexual and eschewed sexual labelling altogether. A documentary about the famed hacker premiered earlier this year.

Just before their protest, the WBC will also hold a Reddit AMA (ask me anything), adding "Westboro Baptist Church will use the Reddit platform, which is usually filled with vanity, science falsely so-called, and other sundry lies; to instead preach righteousness & spread the gospel."

A fourth Westboro member defected this last May, two months after the death of the church's founder Fred Phelps.


Scottish Lesbian Teen Takes On The Westboro Baptist Church: VIDEO

Rebecca anderson

16-year-old Edinburgh lesbian Rebecca Anderson has taken on the Westboro Baptist Church (WBC) with her own take on the WBC’s parody of Panic! At The Disco’s “I Write Sins Not Tragedies.”

Last week, Panic! At The Disco responded to WBC’s virulently homophobic parody of their song by making a donation to the LGBT charity Human Rights Campaign.

Rebecca’s mum contacted Towleroad to say that her daughter was so infuriated by the WBC that she felt moved to make her own parody of their parody.

Rebecca’s version, titled “Your Beliefs Are A Lie What A Tragedy,” includes the lyrcis:

I’d chime in with a

“Haven’t you people ever hated Westboro Baptist Church?!”

Oh, think over things you preach about the gays,

With a sense of poise and rationality,

I’d chime in

“Stop spreading homophobic hatred. Obeying the word of God?”

No, your teachings are so hypocritical,

It makes no sense at all…

Wilson High School Principal Pete Cahall, who came out as gay to his students at the D.C. school's annual Pride Day last week, led hundreds in a counterprotest of the Westboro Baptist Church today. The WBC had come to picket the school because of its strong support for LGBT students.

WJZ reports:

More than 2,000 students and teachers took part in the counter-protest.

“Education breeds tolerance and hatemongers breed ignorance,” said a participant.
“When I was in high school, we really didn’t include the LGBT community but these students are insisting that we do that and I just couldn’t be prouder,” said a participant.

“I just couldn’t imagine what happened today in my wildest dreams,” said Cahall.
The rally lasted about an hour. Police escorted members of the Westboro Baptist Church from the area.

Four hundred members of the surrounding community also showed up at the students’ event

Monday outside the school.
