We hate giving the Westboro Baptist Church attention, or risk making them look at all like a legitimate organization and not a small group of hateful bigots masquerading that hatred as virtue. Because that's all the WBC wants: Attention. But we're OK covering their protests when they end like this:
The WBC was set to protest Moore, Okla. this week. They've protested the town thrice before, and this time they were arriving with their "God Hates Fags!" signs, because, as they explain:
God has given Moore, Oklahoma many chances to repent...On 5/2/13, God struck Moore with an EF5 tornado, killing 24, injuring 377 others, including many of your children...Not once did a single voice [besides WBC] say, Repent! Mourn for your sins! Obey God! Because you phony salt-of-the-eart-small-town-pseydo-patriot-pretend-Christians LOVE YOUR SIN MORE THAN YOUR LIFE, AND HAVE NOTHING BUT HATE IN YOUR HEARTS FOR EACH OTHER.
They also claim that Moore mocked the recent death of former WBC leader Fred Phelps. But what WBC obviously did not expect was to be met with another protest: Thousands of Moore residents gathered with their own signs and flags. A protest against the protest.
