In a maneuver of daring doucheness which surprised both their foes and their fringy clutch of boosters alike, yokel commandos from the Westboro Baptist Church staged a brazen assault on America’s East Coast. The majority of their forces were directed at New York’s Gay Pride Parade, with some held in reserve in the event of a public memorial for Jackass Jackass Ryan Dunn.
Westboro Baptist, the righteous army of the execrable douchelord Fred Phelps, has gained notoriety in recent years by picketing funerals, most notably those of fallen soldiers and marines. These Kansan cock-knockers believe that America has strayed from the course intended by the Almighty by failing to lynch outright pernicious elements of society, most particularly homosexuals. It remains unclear why the Lord of Lords has chosen as His sole prophet a deranged old nutbag from the prairie whose idea of saving souls is waving a placard thanking God for IEDs while screaming incoherently at grieving survivors. Nevertheless, the indefatigable Clan Westboro is an increasing media presence.
Westboro’s assault on New York City’s Gay Pride Parade is in retaliation for New York State’s recent legalization of gay marriage, which according to one source close to Phelps has made the preacher “flaming mad, absolutely raging.” Although the handful of church weirdos who showed up to protest the event were dwarfed in number by the gazillions who attended to celebrate, a spokesidiot for the WBC likened their situation to that of David and Goliath. She then went on to explain twice that the story of David and Goliath has nothing at all to do with a TV show about a Claymation sissyboy and his talking dog. She reconfirmed this information in a follow-up interview.
It is believed that several Westboro operatives remain on the East Coast, planning to disrupt the inevitable memorial to Dunn, which although as-yet-unannounced, most experts believe will have to occur soon before the reality-television clown fades from public’s goldfish-like memory. Dunn died along with another person last week, in what in other circumstances would be called a murder-suicide, but because it was vehicular has been termed a ‘drunk driving accident.’
Given the potential exposure of such a public event, which media outlets like MTV will be only too happy to hijack, the Church has an opportunity to bring their peculiar brand of Christianity to a wider audience. However, the halfwits who grieve for Dunn aren’t likely to understand how the presumably heterosexual Jackass’ moronic and useless death has anything to do with God hating homosexuals. The three or four whole-to-partially-witted folks who witness the event are likely to have the same problem.
Some Guy said:
I try really, really hard to value human life wherever it’s found, even in its most twisted and disgusting forms . . . but I have to admit that I think the world is very fortunate that Fred Phelps will be dead someday.
The Westboro Baptist crowd (IMHO neither Christian nor conservative) is NOT a good example of either living out Christian faith or exemplifying conservative values.
For a guy who likes to quote the Bible, “Rev.” Phelps doesn’t seem to remember that Jesus hung out with tax collectors, lepers and women of questionable morals.
I’m not an advocate of the gay lifestyle and I don’t believe it’s natural, but I figure it’s God’s business what, if anything, He wants to do about it. There’s plenty of straight people out there being promiscuous and spreading diseases too, which is just as bad. What about loving your neighbor- and minding your own business?
Thanks for the comment, Elysian. Reverend Phelps & Co. shame a lot of people with their antics. Bad folk indeed.
Westboro Baptist Church spreads its hate through picketing in our streets, provoking attacks, with abusive language and flag desecration, attempting to create a confrontation. This is not a church, this is a hate group. This is not about protesting, freedom, or God. They are in it for the money and the press; this is a family law firm. They are not a “church.” It is a scam. They go after anything that can get them in the news. This is a family of lawyers using this “god hates you” thing to make money. It is time for this scam to end.
