NBC Reports that new billboard with the message “Gods Loves Gays” debuted Monday in Topeka, Kansas, the home city of the Westboro Baptist Church.
“The Facebook God,” a satirical Facebook page with more than 1.7 million “likes,” raised more than $80,000 on the crowd-funding platform Indiegogo in order to mount the billboard. “This hate group goes around saying that God hates gay people,” an animated depiction of God says in a YouTube video uploaded to the Indiegogo page. “Nonsense! I love gay people. These Westboro psychos protest at the funerals of soldiers, murdered children and more. How dare they!”
As “The Facebook God” posted on their fundraiser: “The Westboro Baptist Church is a hate group based in Topeka, Kansas. This group protests at the funerals of soldiers, murdered children, and more. They carry around with them hate-speech signs that say that God hates gay people.”
They go on to explain:
This evil lie has been put into the world by bigots like them for thousands of years. The time has come to right this wrong.
God LOVES gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people!
BEHOLD! God is tired of having hate-speech put into his mouth by bigots. Therefore, the LORD shall put up a billboard in Topeka, Kansas that declares to all that “God Loves Gays”!
