anonymous asked:

what does "god 8 a sandwich" mean?

BLESS YOU FOR ALLOWING ME TO REMIND YALL.

Those Westboro Baptist Demons were picketing at the Kansas City TMH show!

“They called the five bandmates “perverted” representations of the “sin-chasing, fag-enabling, God-hating, Christ-rejecting” United Kingdom. The group is particularly annoyed about how the pop singers touch each other onstage. “These freaks and their fans think it’s funny for these five perverts to grab each other’s asses on stage,” read the group’s June statement. “They glamorize sin and make a mock of God’s standards. Their one purpose is to encourage the youth of this generation to pursue every lust their evil hearts can imagine.”  

So it went with the tweet pictured in that same gif. He killed them by making fun of their “God Hates Gays” signs with God 8 a sandwich then posted the lovely message after.  

AND EVEN BETTER: 

Harry Edward Styles is queer af and he loves his queer fans and he is NOT here for your disgusting homophobic BULLSHIT. I LOVE HIM.

Westboro Members Now Live Next To House Painted Colors Of Transgender Flag

The Equality House, the rainbow-colored house across the street from the Westboro Baptist Church in Topeka, Kansas, just expanded its compound — with a home painted the colors of the trans flag — and by doing so furthered its visible statement of solidarity with the queer community.

Too bad to check: Westboro cult vows to travel to Iraq to protest ISIS

They call themselves “Westboro Baptist Church,” but I refuse to refer to them using the words Baptist or church because they are neither of these things.  They are a cult and a hate group, and it really isn’t more complicated than than. 

The Westboro cult was recently challenged by British talk show host Adam Hills to protest someone who actually is an affront to Christians: ISIS, who beheads and crucifies Iraqi and Syrian Christian men, women, and children in the streets. 

Here’s the clip from Hills’s show (PROFANITY WARNING…there are some f-bombs in here):

Shortly after the show aired, the Westboro cult accepted Hills’s offer via Twitter:

If this actually happens, you’re going to be hearing about these people on the Darwin Awards.

That Time I Met the Westboro Baptist Church

I met some members of the Westboro Baptist Church when they were picketing outside the Staples Centre. You see, Michael Jackson had just died, and there was a public memorial there. 

They had the usual signs, “God Hates Fags”, “Burn in Hell Michael Jackson” etc, so I went up and had a chat to them. “Why are you here?” I asked. “God hates fags. Michael Jackson was a fag. And a pedophile. And gay” they said. “Oh okay,” I replied. 

I told them I was from New Zealand. One of the men, in his early 40s, perked up: “Oh, Flight of the Concords! I love those guys”. I asked what would happen if Flight of the Concords died. Would they picket their funeral?

The man went very serious again and replied, “Yes”.

And that’s when I stopped being annoyed at the Westboro Baptist Church and did lots of LOLing instead.
