Westboro Baptist Church vs. Russell Brand. Guess How This One Ends.
Comedian Russell Brand interviewed leaders from the Westboro Baptist Church . . . You won’t believe what happened next!
These two guys from the Westboro Baptist Church had no idea how to react to Russell Brand or his audience and the other guests just about drove them mad.
You can go here for more Russell Brand.
And here’s a few of our favorite highlights.
Phelps: It means that you’re an advocate for sin, is what it means, and a very loud one at that.
Brand: [speaking to the audience] Thank you, and I appreciate your vocal respect, but these people are here to explain something to me and it does take courage and bravery to come in front of a room full of people you think, almost certainly, aren’t going to agree with you so let’s hear what they’ve got to say because I’m actually very interested. “Fag Pimp Brand.” Okay, we’re keeping this.
Drain: You make your living making a mockery of sin.
Phelps: In fact, since you promote sin, you hate all these kind people in your heart.
Brand: Aw! I don’t, I love them!
Phelps: That’s why he applauds your sin. Because he hates you all.
Brand: I don’t applaud any sins what’s hurting people or yourselves.
Phelps: You encourage them, and then they burn in hell for eternity, and that’s not very loving.
Drain: When the lord Jesus Christ said to love your neighbor as yourself, you love your neighbor as yourself by warning them when their sin is taking them to hell. And as a matter of fact, if you fail to warn your neighbor, you hate your neighbor in your heart. So, by a Bible standard, we love you all. And I know that you can’t believe that from your goofy Hallmark-standard, but from a Bible standard, we love you. And he [Brand] doesn’t.
Phelps: From a Bible standard, he [Brand] hates you.
Brand: “Because he can.” That’s very good. Okay… so it’s simply God condemning what is objectively and indefatigably wrong. That’s what it is.
Phelps: Well put. Other than the accent, very well put.
Brand: That’s their catch phrase. I like it. “Westboro Baptist Church: We’re Not Making This Stuff Up!” [Holds up sign] This is to also be found in Corinthians!
Drain: It was written by the Holy Spirit!
Brand: The Holy Spirit ain’t got a pen!
