Just to illustrate that I’m not exaggerating about those “God Hates Fags” idiots, I’m giving links to press releases from the Westborough Baptist Church (the Fred Phelps groupies) below the fold. I don’t even need to comment, they are ridiculous/frightening on their own.
- Thanking god for dead people and asking for more.
- Failing to take any responsibility for a fire at their church.
- Having the audacity to file a hate crime complaint against other people.
- Yes, hate crimes are interesting aren’t they?
- Various picketing threats (although apparently they can’t be too incensed by things if they give up at the first threat of possibly being arrested).
I wanted to post these to illustrate that it’s not that people who complain about them are just being jerks towards some church. The fact that they’re religious is inconsequential. It’s the fact that they are assholes who promote hate and bigotry that pisses people off. These are they’re own press releases linked from their own website. This is the message that they choose to promote. It’s disgusting.
