Westboro Baptist Church

My very Christian little sister upon seeing "god hates fags" signs for the first time:
  • Her:OH- Oh my Go- WHAT?!?
  • Me:what? Have you never seen those before?
  • Her:NO! How can they do that? *shaking* I am so mad. 'LOVE THY NEIGHBOR AS YOU WOULD LOVE THINE SELF' you... you.... You stupid jerks! How can they call themselves Christian and act like that? God doesn't hate gays! God doesn't hate anybody! That's the whole point!
  • Her:*mumbles incoherent anger the rest of the car ride.*
The Westboro Baptist Church is picketing my temple

This is happening tomorrow (April 10) during Shabbat services. The temple has asked the members of our congregation to come to services to show WBC that they can’t stop us from practicing our own religion. That being said, it would be awesome if other Jews from the area came to show solidarity. It is Temple Rodef Shalom in Falls Church, Virginia. The service is at 8 PM, and more information about the temple can be found here.

If you do come, ABSOLUTELY DO NOT engage or argue with any member of the WBC, as they film themselves when they picket. If you need to walk past them, just ignore them. If they try to engage you, ignore them

If you have any questions about how to navigate the temple or anything else, feel free to send me an ask.

Community rallies in support of school’s first transgender homecoming queen

Kids at Oak Park High School in Kansas City, Missouri elected their classmate Landon Patterson as homecoming queen last week, with overwhelming support from the student body.

However, the news attracted hatred from the anti-gay lobby – with the Westboro Baptist Church attempting to stage a protest outside the school.

It did not go their way, however, with a large group of counter-protesters rallying to drown out the group.

The students carried signs reading “Love wins” and “Westboro Baptist Church needs Jesus”, while chanting “long live the Queen”.

That time a group of high school students literally drove away the Westboro Baptist Church, who showed up to protest their trans homecoming queen.

Westboro was driven away from their picketing site by counter-protestors carrying signs with phrases such as “Westboro Baptist Church need Jesus” and chanting “long live the queen!”

“This isn’t just about supporting Landon, this is about supporting all our students,"Christina Palermo, an organizer for the rally, told a local news outlet. "Landon is just their scapegoat. They’re attacking everyone in the LGBT community.”

Hell. Yes. Four for you, Oak Park High School.

Hi so westboro baptist church is picketing my temple tomorrow (April 10) during Shabbat services and my temple has sent an e-mail out to all the members, asking them to come to show that WBC won't stop us from coming. I was thinking that maybe other Jews from the area could come too if they wanted, to show solidarity. It is temple Rodef shalom in falls church, va. Services I think are at 7:30, but people might want to check the website to make sure (just google the name)

Everyone in the area who can attend, please do so. Please reblog this.

OH MY GOD GUYS!

Westboro Baptist Church has edited my artwork and posted it to Twitter.

So earlier this year a children’s book I worked on about acceptance in couples came out, Square Zair Pair.  The author, who is a gay man, was planning a reading in the Castro district when Westboro started sending him hateful messages and stated their plans to protest the book reading!

This, however, is on a whole different level.  I laughed so hard I started crying, because these guys are SO threatened by genderless purple creatures that they needed to use them to spread hate.

WELL, I’ll do the opposite and spread word of this adorable book, instead :)

The e-book is actually FREE on Amazon if you have unlimited Kindle seevice!  And you can also order a hard copy there if you’d like.

Counter protest on February 6th in the Castro!!
I won’t be there.  Couldn’t afford the plane ticket :3
But the author, Jase, will be, and he’s a FANTASTIC man!

Please reblog and share!  There’s no better way to protest hate than to share love :D!
