Westboro Baptist Church says God hates fag-run Canada

On the eve of the Vancouver Pride parade, the Straight, as well as a long list of other Canadian news publications, received a news release from the Westboro Baptist Church in Topeka, Kansas.

According to the news release, God hates Canada, "land of Sodomite sin", beacuse it "is a filthy country run by fags".

The church is famous for organizing demonstrations and protests at gay funerals and events.

They also run the Web site God Hates Fags.

Here's a clip of an Australian reporter that had some fun with Westboro demonstrators:

Michael Moore has also joined in the fray:

The Westboro Baptist Church is also known to <a href="http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,305279,00.html" target="_blank">picket the funerals of U.S. soldiers</a> killed in Iraq and Afghanistan. The church claims that those deaths are punishment for America's "tolerance" of homosexuality, according to a report by FoxNews.

They also have GodHatesCanada.com. I think they're just jealous because we have a great women's hockey team. ;-)

Apparently, the Westboro Baptist Church gets money whenever someone goes to their website, so I'd advise some people not to go to it if you don't want to support them.

WBC is going to pay deeply for what it has done. The time will come. Until then, we will continue to protest. This is why we fight.

Hmm, he declares himself as a "prophet"? What a complete blind-bible-reading, gay-bashing, in-the-closet d-bag! God hates you, wannabe prophet.

If god hates Canada, then why do we have all the oil, the land, the beautiful, untouched lakes and forests, and all this...well...kindness? That beheaded man was dead, there wasn't anything anyone can do to save him so there was no point in staying. I hope that these mindless fuckers don't come here...

Michael Moore's The Man!!!!, he's not afraid to stand up for what's right & for what's being done wrong too, as for Rev. Phelps, isn't promoting hate a crime too? what is disgusting is this asshole preaching hatred to young children, I have several friends that are both gay & lesbian & if I had children I would've mentored them into accepting everyone, no matter what their race, creed or sexual orientation was or is, plus if my son or daughter told me that he or she was gay, guess what I'd still love them & their4 partner would be forever welcome in my home.
