Aaron Jackson, president of Planting Peace and founder of the Equality House, was inside at the time the house was vandalized on Sunday with spray-paint. He was awoken at around 1:12 a.m. when he heard loud noises coming from outside. He called the police, and once they had arrived, they found the anti-gay slurs on the house. A few days later, seven bullet holes were found on the same side of the home.
This, unfortunately, is just the latest in a recent string of vandalism against Equality House.
“The Equality House has been a target for acts of hate and intolerance that reflect the same experiences our LGBT family face every day,” Jackson said. “Planting Peace frequently receives hate mail and even death threats, but over the past three months we have seen an increase in physical acts of vandalism and violence. While it may seem shocking to some, it’s a heartbreaking reality.”
Yesterday morning three members of Westboro Baptist Church picketed outside of the funeral of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia at the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Washington DC on Saturday not because Scalia was gay of course but because he was Catholic.
So according to the WBC, Scalia is now in hell with billions of other Catholics, gays, Muslims. Jews, Pagans, and so on.
Not that Scalia would go to heaven anyway but by Westboro’s standards heaven must be pretty empty place.
Shirley Phelps-Roper and the infamous Westboro Baptist Church plans to picket anti-gay “christian” county clerk Kim Davis at the Rowan County Courthouse in Kentucky on Monday @ 8:30 am.
From WBC’s statement:
As it happened, the Supreme Court of the United States, fulfilling their destiny, made same-sex marriage the law of the land. The duty of all mankind is to OBEY the laws of God and the laws of man. Enter, Kim Davis. Rowan County Kentucky Clerk, with high-dollar salary and digs, she acquired, ONLY after she took an oath to uphold and defend the constitution and the laws. Kim claims that she has lived in proud sin for many years, divorcing and remarrying, not one time or two times, in fact you need a score card to keep track. Her lawyers, being smooth talking fellows say that all that was before her call to salvation two years ago when her current mother-in-law died….These matters are not hard and unclear. That man that Kim Davis is living with and calling her husband, IS NOT! Her husband is Dwain Wallace, who she married when she was 18-years-old. It does not matter how many years you pile on, it was adultery at the beginning and it was adultery in the middle and it is indeed adultery today!
So here we have crazy as a loon “Christian” Shirley Phelps-Roper who has a bastard child out of wedlock with WBC calling out a quadro-married/thrice-divorced/mother-of-an-illegitimate-child/ crazy as a loon “Christian” Kim Davis a sinner …. this is just too delicious.
You know you’ve taken a turn for the surreal when the Westborough Baptist Church becomes the voice of reason.
Westboro contacted the FBI many times to alert the FBI of threats against the church, a tactic the Bureau saw through as early as 1993, and throughout the file Phelps and his Klan are referred to as “zealots” and “radical extremist,” and his church a “hate group.”
Nothing that we already didn’t know. But its still worth a scan.
“The church has no singular human leader – our head is the Lord Jesus Christ. The church currently has 8 male members who have been serving the church in the capacity of ‘elders’ for several years (this word is synonymous with ‘bishop,’ ‘pastor,’ and ‘overseer’) – all of whom minister to the members of the church, preach, and are involved in doctrine and teaching. These men were unanimously chosen by the members of the church to serve in this capacity, having evidenced the proper scriptural qualifications. The church of the Lord Jesus Christ does not rise or fall with any man – in fact, the Lord doesn’t need ANY of us. This is still a nation and world awash in sin. We will still warn you of this condition, out of our love and fear of the Lord, and out of our love for our neighbors. Here is the message of Westboro Baptist Church: God still hates fags, God still hates fag enablers and any nation that embraces that sin as an ‘innocent’ lifestyle can expect to incur the wrath of God. Repent or Perish.” – Westboro Baptist Church, (probably written by loony bastard bearing out-of-wedlock Shirley) in a statement posted to their website.
I’ll take Predictable Lunatic Ranting for $500, Alex.
Nate Phelps, the son of anti-gay extremist Fred Phelps, founder of the Westboro Baptist Church and “Gods Hate Fags” posted on his Facebook page Saturday night that father Fred is near death in a local hospice in Topeka, Kansas.
I’ve learned that my father, Fred Phelps, Sr., pastor of the “God Hates Fags” Westboro Baptist Church, was ex-communicated from the “church” back in August of 2013. He is now on the edge of death at Midland Hospice house in Topeka, Kansas.
I’m not sure how I feel about this. Terribly ironic that his devotion to his god ends this way. Destroyed by the monster he made.
I feel sad for all the hurt he’s caused so many. I feel sad for those who will lose the grandfather and father they loved. And I’m bitterly angry that my family is blocking the family members who left from seeing him, and saying their good-byes.
Patheos has confirmed that the post is real with Phelps himself and furthermore that Family members who were excommunicated from the church have been told they cannot see Fred. Fred himself was, by this notice and now being revealed, excommunicated from his own church last year. No one knows why and probably ever will.
Nate Phelps left the family “compound” in 1976 at the age of 18. Since 2004, many of Fred’s thirteen children and extended family members have escaped from his indoctrination and his cult — 20 of them to be exact, and according to one report, three-quarters of them were under the age of 30.
With the 84 year old Phelp’ s passing will come the debate among us weather to make a larger statement and picket his eventual funeral or ignore it and turn the other cheek. And where I’d usually say because of the pain and suffering he and his “church” have caused so many by their hateful words and actions that some grand statement should be made. Perhaps Phelp’s funeral itself should get all the attention it deserves. Ignore it completely.
Let the silence be deafening. And may he rot quick, and be forgot even quicker.
Investigative reporter Brick Stone (the HOT Dave Sirus) was asked by the students of Celebration High School to help them counter protest the WBC, Brick arrived and was threatened with arrest by Kissimmee police for daring to ask Shirley about lies he caught her in.
That didn’t sit too well with Brick who then attempted to exorcise Shirley and get the devil “to pull out” of her.
Screw that traitor Thomas Roberts. Give me the dreamy Brick Stone anyday!
Country music star and judge of NBC’s hit show The Voice: Blake Shelton, is having some fun on Twitter and has taken aim at Topeka, Kansas’ Westboro Baptist Church after the anti-gay “religious” extremists group announced plans to protest at Shelton’s upcoming October 3rd concert in Kansas City, Kansas,
WBC it seems has a cross up its ass and is branding Sheltonr a sinner and “vulgar adulterer” for marrying second wife Miranda Lambert calling him a “fake Christians”, and claiming that because of people like him “same-sex marriage is flourishing.”
On Blake’s Twitter.com page, he writes, “Hey WBC… I’ve got one more sin for ya… Blow me!” and added sarcastically, “Oh no! Not a picket! What will I ever do?!! The dreaded wrath of the picket!!”
Shelton also tweeted a photo Margie Phelps and captioned the snap, “You know what else God hates? Inbreeding.”
The Satanic Temple, a community of worship devoted to the Dark Lord, has been preforming a “Pink Mass” over the grave of Westboro Baptist Church founder Fred Phelps Jr.’s mother, Catherine Idalette Johnston that turns the deceased’s straight spirit into a homosexual one— not unlike the Mormon practice of baptizing the dead, only much much gayer.
The Satanic Temple went to the Phelps family graveyard in the Magnolia cemetery in Mississippi to perform the ritual. (Two Pink Masses were performed, one with a female couple and another with men.) where they read “scriptures”, lit candles, and a held a ceremony where the gay couples kissed over the grave, thus turning Fred Phelps mother gay.
The Temple said the idea for the mass came about in April, when the WBC announced their intention to protest the funerals of the Boston Bombing victims. The church never showed up, but later issued a statement saying they were there “in spirit.” So the Satanic Temple decided that a ceremony celebrating same-sex couples “at the grave site of Fred Phelps’ mother was an appropriate way to meet the Westboro Baptists, ‘in spirit,’ but this time on our terms.”
While the White House refuses to officially recognize that the Westboro Baptist Church is a hate group after receiving five separate petitions with nearly 675,000 signatures demanding that they do so. And the IRS allows to let WBC keep their tax-exempt status. Just hours after the tragic death of GLEE actor Corey Monteith , Shirley Phelps – Roper the de-facto leader of the human excrement filled “church” tweeted that the WBC would be picketing the Monteith’’s funeral, claiming he was “struck down by raging mad God” for working as a “fag enabler” alongside Chris Colfer, who stars as the show’s openly gay teenager.
Roper, who expressed joy for the death of children in Oklahoma’s recent tornadoes and the Sandy Hook Elementary shootings, then took the time to tweet individual members of the Glee cast to “Praise God Almighty” for the untimely death of their co-star.
Fortunately with Monteith being from a civilized country like Canada, that recognizes hate and evil for what it is ulike the USA the WBC may not get a chance to take their freak-show north. The hate group was turned away at the Canadian border in 2008 after planning to protest the funeral of a 22-year-old murder victim, and has officially been banned from preaching anywhere in Great Britain.
No President Obama and the White House. The WBC is not a hate group at all.
