Audio: You connected these dots, Mat, not us!

by Jeremy Hooper

Speaking about Sean Penn's reference to the picketers who were protesting outside of the Oscars ceremony, Mat Staver said the following today on his "Liberty Live" radio show:

So who were the protestors that were on site, you ask? Well here, see for yourself. Cue "traditional family values":

Yes, that's right -- the protestors were from the Westboro Baptist Church. The ONLY gay protestors, from all accounts.

Who knew Mr. Staver was such a Phelps fan?

Your thoughts

Well, LaBabs was just on that show a couple of days ago agreeing with Phred that "god hates fags", so it isn't that surprising that they would feel offended when the phreaks are called haters in front of a primetime audience of 34 million.

Who keeps making the signs for these people? I work at a print shop and I would walk off the job before I helped them print up racist and sexist signs. We have the right to refuse service to people with "iffy" requests. Who keeps accepting their order?

When I was up close to some people with similar signs at the DNC, I noticed that there was a website printed in small print at the bottom, something along the lines of "street preaching signs" or some such but I can't remember exactly. I think there is a specific company that does these for all the fundie wingnut protesters.

Are you kidding? Do you not know how many haters there are out there? Espeically in places like Kansas where this motley group is from! We seem to forget, the haters outnumber us by a great deal (and they work in all kinds of different occupations, including, I'm quite sure, sign shops).

While there may be a modest (and hopefully growing) number of fair-minded people out there who aren't LGBT, they still don't out-number the haters. Need proof? Prop 8 in CA, Prop 2 in FL, etc., etc.

JWSwift: Who/what are you referencing in your comment? For some reason it's not connecting with me.

This is disgusting....

I am a Christian. I talk to and walk with God in my heart daily. I also have a sister who is a lesbian and I have cousins who are also Gay. I LOVE THEM ALL!!!! JUST AS GOD LOVES THEM!!!!!! Consider this scripture:
(amplified bible)

Romans 1: 5-6
"It is through him that we have received grace (God's unmerited favor) and our apostleship to promote obedience to the faith and make disciples for his name's sake among all nations, and THIS INCLUDES YOU, CALLED OF JESUS CHRIST AND INVITED [AS YOU ARE] TO BELONG TO HIM."

Sorry misinformed Christian wanna bees... but God makes it clear that he wants us to come to him in faith as we are. God will meet you right where you are at...Gay people can and will go to heaven! All they need to do is believe that Jesus died for them and accept his gift! Yes, I said gift....salvation is a gift. We cannot earn it!

Hey Christian...you are supposed to be winning people to Christ, by showing his love not hate!!! You are not supposed to be out there condemning people and acting like you are God's favorite because you are not! He loves us all!! Salvation is available to all-everyone!!! This is why I don't go to church, because they have become like the religious freaks that put Jesus to death in the first place. Shame on that Baptist church!!!! They are giving Jesus a bad name. My hope is that everyone will just read the ministry of Paul. You will see the truth in his ministry. I pray that people will not turn there backs on God because these churches are not teaching the truth!!! I sincerely pray for everyone who reads this...and I assure you God loves you ... no matter what!!! (nothing can separate you from the love of God!!!!!) He is waiting with open arms, and will turn no one away who calls on him....that is the true message of God!!! Not this hate they are preaching in churches!!!!
