"God Hates Fags" clan to picket White House
On Monday, March 30th, between the hours of 11:30 a.m. and 12:15 p.m., the "God Hates Fags" Westboro Baptist Church group, founded by Fred Phelps, is planning to picket at the White House because of President Obama's support for LGBT Equality.
On the “God Hates Fags” website, Phelps has this to say about the upcoming protest at the White House:
“White House - Pray for God to SHORTLY destroy Antichrist! 1600 Pennsylvania During his LYING address to Congress on 2/24/09 this raving filthy beast had the NERVE to end with these words "God bless you, and may God continue to bless america." Shocking that he was not immediately cast into hell, but God doeth all things well. This is the face of the antichrist who attempts to call upon the name of the True and Living God and is furtherance of his lies. God is NOT blessing this evil land. Uh, HELLO?! Here is the face of how God is actually, and factually CURSING this rebellious nation: Revelation 6:3 ¶ And when he had opened the second seal, I heard the second beast say, Come and see. 4 And there went out another horse that was red: and power was given to him that sat thereon to take peace from the earth, and that they should kill one another: and there was given unto him a great sword. 5 And when he had opened the third seal, I heard the third beast say, Come and see. And I beheld, and lo a black horse; and he that sat on him had a pair of balances in his hand. 6 And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say, A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny; and see thou hurt not the oil and the wine. Anyone who has a clue can see the signs of the times, but not you clueless brutes who have your eyes blinded and your ears stopped up. The Lord has dealt with other like rebels, but this time he will fully complete the work he has begun! AMEN!
Driving Equality is hosting a Phelps-A-Thon. The point of the Phelps-A-Thon is two-fold. It is using Phelps' own hateful message to raise funds for a good cause; they will actually be raising money for a local group called Gays and Lesbians Opposing Violence (GLOV), which works to oppose all forms of hate-motivated violence.
Secondly, after the event, Driving Equality will send Phelps a thank you card, telling him how much money he raised for LGBT equality, with the hope that this will upset the group and perhaps inhibit future protesting.
