Polar ice caps melting? Let Westboro tell you why

by Jeremy Hooper

Speaking on the topic of the "Million *Fag* March," the weekend event that was held in protest of Westboro Baptist Church's anti-gay antics, an unidentified member of the Phelps family says the following on WBC's blog:

This little event is a new milestone for the fags and their enablers of this generation. They must do this - heretofore, they have hidden in the dens and rocks and scampered out under cover of darkness to work their mischief - vandalism, theft, etc. They have even had a small protest here and there - just a couple. They NEED to do this - they MUST get their resolve stiffened and they MUST encourage this generation to see that this is a good path for them to take - it will certainly result in making the Word of God disappear from off the land and that means - MAKE US SHUT UP. So - hold onto your hat and stay tuned! We will shortly see the face of this event and what the Lord will do in response! The Lord is coming and america is DOOMED!! Things are getting into place and the very earth is preparing for that awesome and fiery event!! The dummies call it global warming!

Okay, first off: Gays have been hiding under the cover of darkness? What, was this blog post written in 1972? Because let's be real here -- Gays have been taking to the streets, airwaves, political arena, and national consciousness for decades now. Westboro, what with their pickets of anyone who even farts in a gay-friendly manner, should be aware of this fact more than anyone.

200804010929But disingenuous presentations of gay visibility aside, let's now instead talk about global warming. Is Westboro seriously looking at climate change as if it's the Earth's way of telling us that the Lord's coming to destroy us? Hmm. That just seems to us like such "a convenient untruth." And it also seems like a very roundabout way to send a message. Hell, we can't even all agree that such a change is even happening. Wouldn't the Earth's preparation for God's wrath be a little more undeniable? Wouldn't it be the sort of thing that makes people want to get their asses to a church rather than to the Home Depot to pick up some energy efficient light bulbs?

But whatever -- you can decide for yourself whether it's our horrid treatment of the environment or if it's the slow dissipation of the horrid treatment of gay people that's truly jacking up the planet. As for us, we'll continue to love the way we were meant to love, and to recycle the lube bottles when we're done.

***NOTE: The full Westboro blog post can be found on their website. However, a link from us is something those insensitive creatures will never receive.

Your thoughts

RECYCLE!.... Oh HOOT!! I love it. Thanks for making my AM.

But you must warn us about these comments that can wreak our keyboards!... No,
of course, we should just expect them of you, especially in the AM and be sure our coffee, or bev of choice, is safely down before we read you.
