Fags eat poop

“That’s a fact, hon.”
And God hates all of us, because we’re all fags at some level.
Welcome to the Westboro Baptist Church and the extended Phelps family, the unquestioned holders of the “Nuttiest Freaks in America” title for many years running. I have to say I laughed my way through much of this footage (below the fold); I mean, what else can you do? And the fact that it’s part of a BBC documentary featuring a properly polite and British-accented narrator makes the contrast between sobriety and lunacy that much more stark.


There are seven parts to this feature, all of them included below and ordered in sequence from top to bottom. Each is about nine minutes long, making the entire presentation about an hour in duration. I do not recommend playing more than one of them at a time.

    So, they can clearly see that when a soldier gets hit by an IED, it’s punishment from God . . . but when their kid gets pelted with a drink cup, it’s all part of the filthy fag agenda?

    ‘God Hates Fags’ is about homosexuals ?
    I thought it was an anti-smoking website !

    Riveting. I had to watch the entire thing in one sitting. I was completely surprised how normal the church members seemed while talking, laughing, and going about their daily routine – even while that routine included some of the most outrageous behavior imaginable.
    The church members seemed to me a generally happy and stable bunch, despite Louie’s frequent negative characterizations. Thoughout, in fact, I felt that he was so busy injecting his thoughts and feelings that he didn’t ‘get’ them nearly as well as the cameras did. Thanks for this terrific post!

    Cody: Great point. I wish he’d asked them if the kid had done wrong that justified the attack. Louie asked a church member whether she’d go to hell if she died in a car accident, and she said yes. (I think.)

    I like how I was thinking, “This is a cult!!!!” and then he asks, “Have you ever considered that this might be a cult?”
    I wish I hadn’t watched the whole thing.

    I was in Wyoming when the punks beat Matt and left him tied to the fence. Though not present for the memorial that included a most unwelcome intrusion of Phelps and his Phlock, I was witness to one of the most moving and spot on counter-demonstrations I can recall.
    UW students, dressed as angels, surrounded the scurvy horde and simply turned their backs on the Phlock, facing outward towards the rest of the world with benign and smiling faces. A soft snow was falling with little wind behind it, lending an air of gentleness and calm to the occasion. Phred and his litter were marginalized in a flash, without malice and without lots of screaming. Soon, they just left.
    And I said to myself, “Ahhh; ha!”

    Didn’t you know that when bad things happen to your enemies that God is punishing them, but when they happen to you He is testing your faith.

    Someone needs to beat the shit out of these people so that they realize “God’s wrath” has nothing to do with bad things happening.

    SG and B from D: I don’t think you’re appreciating how consistent their craziness is. According to the video, if something bad did happen to them, they would interpret it to mean that they’d done something to incur God’s wrath on themselves.

    The videos are no longer available.
    I guess that’s a mixed blessing.

    “And the fact that it’s part of a BBC documentary featuring a properly polite and British-accented narrator makes the contrast between sobriety and lunacy that much more stark.”
    That’s Louis Theroux’s MO. He’s made countless documentaries about nuts and generally weird people or subcultures. He always plays a naive, bemused-but-open-minded role.
