Administrations change but nutty street signs never die

by Jeremy Hooper

Westboro Baptist may get all the infamy, but those of us who follow the anti-gay industry know that a man by the name of Ruben Israel has been rivaling the Phelps family in days of recent when it comes to picketing gay events. And today's pre-inaugural concert, which featured the openly-gay Bishop Gene Robinson, was no exception. Go check our HuffPo for a short report:

Religious Hate-Mongers Protest Bishop Gene Robinson's Participation at pre-Inaugural Concert at Lincoln Memorial [HuffPo]

Well, you say what you want about him, but Mr. Israel (pic, l.) is refreshingly non-partisan. That "Homo Sex Is A Threat To National Security" sign? We saw it all the time during the Bush error era, and now it's Barack n' rollin' into Prez 44's time. Apparently to Mr. Israel, both Dems and Repubs are weak on national anti-homo-sex security.

We're just glad we're moving away from a president who we feared would actually invite him for a policy meeting!

**UPDATE: Be sure to see our comments section, where Ruben Israel has responded.

Your thoughts

And yet you know that no matter what people do, nobody will ever be good enough for their version of god (i.e., their own twisted beliefs).

Seeing this makes me wonder...Both the Phelps' signs and this guy's signs are awfully similar. I wonder if they make the signs themselves or have some company make the signs for them. Or perhaps they all went to the same "making huge signs for street protests of religious bigotry" course at the community college extension?

Thank you for the compliment! I serve the God of the Bible who has said, and I quote " Jer 44:4 Howbeit I sent unto you all my servants the prophets, rising early and sending them, saying, Oh, do not this abominable thing that I HATE." Yes, contrary to pop culture & Oprah Winfrey's fales gospel...the God of the Bible is in fact a HATE MONGER! He sends sinners to HELL and punishes people for their corruption. Homo sex is a wicked perversion that provokes the WRATH and DIVINE RETRIBUTION of Almighty God. You people need to REPENT and READ the Bible!

Ruben Israel, The god of the bible is a fabrication used to keep the feeble minded happy with their meager existence. The entire work is a fairy tale written by swindlers who realized that they could pretend to know the answers to life's difficult questions, and use that pretense to bully the less intelligent with pronouncements of eternal punishment for those who dare to disagree.

They also found that they could raise up armies of minions to carry out some of the most unspeakably horrific actions in the name of their nonexistent god, all based on their words; the words of lying liar, heavy handed brutes.

You can take your bible, your hate, and your predictions of wrath and retribution, and shove them all up your ass. Your lies and deceptions are nothing more than that.

Ahh another bible troll to save for when the right complains about "anti-christian" defamation.

Hey, Ruben, I also keep the Bible handy: There's one on the back of my toilet tank in case I run out of paper.

I think you've been reading too much of the minor prophets and too little of the gospels.

"the God of the Bible is in fact a HATE MONGER!"


No shit! Not to mention he needs therapy, meds, and possibly the men in the white jackets.

Good thing I disowned that nutball years ago! LOL
