Westboro Baptists Can't See What's In Front of Their Noses

Those attention-seeking rednecks are at it again. This time protesting about the people at the Gay Christian Conference in Portland, Oregon.

Yet they've never complained about the Edward Lear poem, "The Owl and the Pussycat". In which two creatures, not only of different species but of different biological orders, are married by a turkey with dodgy ecclesiastical orders. Are they sure they've got their priorities right? Are they hiding something? Or are they just scared that gay people have better dress sense?

  1. They sailed away for a year and a day
    To an isle where gay men and lads play,
    And there on the strand with placards in each hand
    Baptists said they're destined for hell.

  2. I've never understood Westboro Baptist Church or anything that they say, write or preach about ,,,,,,, And I thank God for that.

  3. I find it very hard to accept the modern secular belief that an owl and a cat can get married, although I know that people such as Giles Fraser are prepared to accuse me of bigotry.

    On the other hand, many of our priests are turkeys.

  4. So, they picketed at the fundamentalist church in my town (Salem) after they were done in Portland. Odd, because we have several open and affirming churches in town (including mine) and they didn't even have the consideration of stopping by my church or any other open and affirming church. They spent a few minutes at the downtown Roman Catholic Church...odd again because they're neither open nor affirming of anything like that. I suppose they thought maybe RCs weren't Christian, but only fake-Christians needing to be set straight. They left after a high school aged lesbian couple came out to the street and smooched for a while. Then there was a hilarious occurrence at another more fundy-church on the east side of town. The newspaper reported that after only 3-4 minutes of picketing, they were chased down the busy street by counter-protestors and were not seen again. But our church who recently employed a lesbian priest was completely ignored. I felt slighted.
