Is the Reverend Fred Phelps a Saturday Night Live character?
You probably first became aware of the Westboro Baptist Church when they gained national notoriety for protesting the funeral of Matthew Shepard. That was, at the time, sickening, but their antics since then have gone so far over the top they can’t even be taken seriously enough to find offensive. What does protesting the funerals of U.S. soldiers have to do with God hating gay people? If anything, God loves the Army, because the Army hates gay people, too. And you have to check out their website, godhatesfags.com, which looks like it was written by the Onion:
WBC engages in daily peaceful sidewalk demonstrations opposing the homosexual lifestyle of soul-damning, nation-destroying filth. We display large, colorful signs containing Bible words and sentiments, including: GOD HATES FAGS, FAGS HATE GOD, AIDS CURES FAGS, THANK GOD FOR DEAD SOLDIERS, FAG TROOPS, GOD BLEW UP THE TROOPS, GOD HATES AMERICA, AMERICA IS DOOMED, THE WORLD IS DOOMED, etc.
Are you associated with a militia, Aryan Nation, Nazi, KKK, or any other similar group?
No. We don’t believe in physical violence of any kind, and the Scripture doesn’t support racism. God never says “thou shalt not be black.” However, He does say, “Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.” (Leviticus 18:22).
The only true Nazis in this world are fags.
There’s also a section for song parodies. There’s one set to the tune of “Hey, Jude” called “Hey, Jews.” It’s about Jews being Christ killers and immoral thieves, but I gotta admit, it’s pretty catchy. (It’s still set to the tune of “Hey, Jude,” after all. Love that song!)
Anyway, Fred just sent out a press release announcing his plans to protest Lady GaGa’s upcoming concert:
GOD HATES “LADY” GAGA.
WBC to picket this sleazy God-hater at theFox Theatre (527 N. Grand Blvd., St. Louis, MO) on
Thursday, Jan. 7, 2010, from 6:30 – 7:30 PM
“Art” and “fashion” are the euphemisms, the guise under which proud whore Lady Gaga teaches rebellion against God (incidentally, her claim to the title of “Lady” is sound only if she tacks on “of the night,” thereby alluding to another euphemism for what she is). As much as she’d like to pretend otherwise, there’s nothing new or different about this particular hussy’s pretentious prancing. Does the simple slut truly think that she can change God’s standards by seducing a generation of rebels into joining her in fist-raised, stiffnecked, hard-hearted rebellion against Him? Get real! Even as she gives lip service to “liberating” her young fans, LadyGaga brings them into slavery to their own corruption, teaching them to glory in their shame. She hates you! “For when they speak great swelling words of vanity, they allure through the lusts of the flesh, through much wantonness…While they promise them liberty, they themselves are the servants of corruption.” 2 Pet. 2:18-19.
YOU’RE GOING TO HELL.
Hmm. If Fred and the gang hate gay music so much, I wonder why they never protest when DJ Tiesto spins.
