The Kansas-based church has picketed Ground Zero, the funeral of soldiers and celebrities such as Michael Jackson in the past and threatened to picket Robin Williams’ funeral after saying the actor is “going to hell” and was “hated by God”.
This weekend christian rock singer and author, Vicky Beeching, was invited to perform at the Gay Christian Network Conference in Portland. The conference drew nearly 1,300 lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Christians and supporters to the Oregon Convention Center.
However, a handful of Westboro Baptist Church members gathered with signs declaring gays must “repent or perish” and the classically creative line “God hates Fags”.
Thankfully, the haters were far outnumbered by Portland Christians and LGBT supporters, who held different signs, and formed a protective screen for the participants.
Not to deterred by the Westboro group, Vicky Beeching calmly stopped to pose for a picture with them. The pics were then posted to her twitter account… You go girl!
“Christianity is less of a fixed, concrete faith and more about a relationship with a God who is alive and living… Our theology has become so systematised, so categorised, it can feel less like a living thing and more like … taxidermy.
I love Jesus as much as I ever have. And I’m gay. Deal with it.”
Scottish teen Rebecca Anderson, as young Lesbian women is staging her own response to Westboro’s hate by parodying a ‘Panic! At The Disco song’.
Westboro Baptist Church made headlines last week when the hate group parodied a ‘Panic! At The Disco’ song, in addition to planning a protest of the musical group’s Kansas City show. In response to the protest, Panic! promised to donate $20 to the Human Rights Campaign for every member of the WBC that actually showed.
Hey guys! So Westboro Baptist Church parodied Panic! At The Disco’s ‘I Write Sins Not Tragedies’ and called it ‘You Love Sin What A Tragedy’. They made it a very offensive and homophobic parody and I was shocked and furious about it. In response I have parodied their parody and called it ‘Your Beliefs Are A Lie What A Tragedy’ so I hope you enjoy it.
Watch – Your Beliefs Are A Lie What A Tragedy
