We thought they considered us 'possessed', not 'OBsessed'

by Jeremy Hooper

In the news section of their "God Hates Fags" website, those silly kids are Westboro Baptist have linked to a post that we wrote in which we pointed out just how hard it must be to be part of a family filled with such a disagreeable outlook. And here is the text they use to describe our entry:

Ri-i-i-ght. Our reply to WBC:

"Obsessed? Hmm. Let's see here. You guys and gals spend thousands of dollars and countless hours traipsing this country and even world protesting gays and their acceptance, yet we are the 'obsessed' ones because we sometimes cover your exploits? Well black pots, this kettle thinks that's a little unfair! After all, this is a site on which we document anti-gay sentiment in all its various unnecessary forms. The sole reason why we exist is because folks like yourself have chosen to condemn millions of people for living their truths. Given the choice, we'd much rather dedicate our hours to writing hippy dippy children's books about eccentric young girls who transport to magical worlds. But since anti-gay sentiment (both the 'loving' form and Westboro's band) are still omnipresent on the American landscape, our ability to focus on the beauty of childhood imagination is on hold so that we can hopefully help us reach our fantasy of a non-poloarized land of peace and acceptance.

So don't flatter yourself, Phelpses. Our 'obsession' is with ending the hostility that has plagued gay people for far too long, not with the bizarre soap opera that you all call family life. And even though we clearly don't see eye to eye on Christianity, the world, the root for natural disasters, the cause of soldier's deaths, or which pop songs are best suited for parodic interpretation, surely we can agree that there's a big difference between reacting to thrown stones and a bonafide idée fixe"

***NOTE: This mention can be found on Westboro's website. However, a link from us is something those oddballs will never receive.
