Westboro Baptist Church Coming to New York Sunday to Protest Same-Sex Marriage

God Hates Fags.png
Yesterday, we wrote about how NOM will be protesting same-sex marriage through the state on Sunday, but at locations which appear to be keeping their distance from actual weddings. However, according to a schedule posted on godhatesfags.com, the Westboro Baptist Church will also be picketing the first day of same-sex marriage, but will be doing so right in the faces of same-sex couples.

Their schedule is after the jump.

We'd like to point out to our readers -- especially those getting wed this weekend and their friends and family -- that while NOM is kind of chicken and going to places where no one will be challenging them, Westboro Church makes its money off of agitating people until they physical fight them. And then, they sue you. They are not a "church" in the traditional sense, but just a group that travels around the nation inciting extreme reactions and making money off of them. So just keep that in mind if you're throwing rice at your lesbian friends on Sunday, and are suddenly confronted by a "FAGS DIE GOD LAUGHS" sign.

Here's their schedule for Sunday:

NYC Marriage Bureau in Manhattan - 7:30 AM - 9:00 AM

NYC Marriage Bureau in Brooklyn - 9:45 AM - 10:30 AM

NYC Marriage Bureau in the Bronx - 11:15 AM - 12:00 PM

Gracie Mansion (where the Mayor will preside over the wedding of two staffers) - 4:30 PM - 5:30 PM

And just why, exactly, are they doing this? According to their website:
WBC will picket the reprobates of fag-infested New York state to remind them that God defined marriage as a sacred union between one man and one woman for life. That means NO fag marriage, no dyke marriage and no divorce + remarriage! For their defiance of their Lord, New Yorkers will suffer the wrath of God being poured out on them from the sky, just as others in history who have followed this path experienced.

If it's true about the  crud from the sky, then why is Westboro still around? I suppose they think they are married to God for life as well? Have you checked out God's lifespan, lately? I think there may be some crud coming out of the sky.

a friend tells me this:  Science flys u to the moon, while religion flys u into buildings...

the JWs used to protest churches with signs saying:  religion is a snare and a racket...

there are spiritual comfort zones and cultic zombie ideas that do not comfort anyone...

God does not hate, people hate. I have yet to figure out why. This country was founded on the separation of church and government. You have no right to push your religious beliefs into someone's relationship.

It's nice to see that these people are showing up.  Nothing makes them happier than proving that their God has a bigger dick than anybody else's God.

Now I don't know anything about the size of God's dick...

But I know where a few of his assholes are going to be come Sunday.

Some people are reporting that the NOMZIS will also be at the marriage bureau trying to get signatures for a bogus bully bigot ballot.

NYC Anonymous is planning an incredibly mean and hysterical counter-protest of the Westboro Baptist Church. They want to ruin this gay marriage, and we wanna ruin their day, we we'll be changing who the victim is. Event info here: http://www.nycanon.org/showthr...

If everyone just ignores them, they die, like the giant ad figures in that Simpsons episode.

I think they should ban the protesting.  It’s more of a freedom to organize issue thana freedom of speech issue.  Anyone withcommon decency would agree it’s wrong.   Whatare Fred Phelps and the WBC afraid of anyhow? Rainbows? Unicorns? A flamingpink queer apocalypse?  I attempted toaddress this with a portrait of the good reverend on my artist’s blog at http://dregstudiosart.blogspot...  Drop in and let me know what you think!

For some reason, they have made the Holocaust museum here in Richmond, VA a regular stop on their hatecation up and down the east coast...Go figure. Some of these folks are sadly, and quite obviously, suffering from severe mental illness, as I have witnessed them in person on their last swing through our town. Pathetic and infuriating, but they are always outnumbered by cops and counter-protesters, so don't bother doing anything rash; the legal fees and associated hassles really aren't worth your time, energy, and $...

Someone should let the Westboro people know I am coming with full on joy in my heart for my gay friends- and full on rage for these Westboro idiots. I am not sure if the beat down they will receive from me will be worth the lawsuit they file. But we'll soon find out- It's Clobbering Time!

I paid $32.67 for a XBOX 360 and my mom got a 17 inch Toshiba laptop for $94.83 being delivered to our house tomorrow by FedEX. I will never again pay expensive retail prices at stores. I even sold a 46 inch HDTV to my boss for $650 and it only cost me $52.78 to get. Here is the website we using to get all this stuff, GrabIt.com

While I believe in WBC's freedom of speech, I also believe that the couples getting married should have the right to do so in peace.  So I sincerely hope that WBC is not allowed to attend the marriage ceremonies of these couples, but rather are restricted to picketing outside.

It might be pointed out that NOM, too, is holding "protests" on Sunday, with hopes of financial gain; in NOM's case instead of praying to God for a lawsuit to fall out of the sky, the aim is to attract monetary donations from their gay-bashing followers.  Both NOM and Westboro are whores for hate.   Anybody who would protest weddings is a loser, and in Maggie Gallager's case, a big fat loser.   I offered to help her organize assistance for the homeless all across New York State, in exchange for her calling off her protests; but she did not take me up on that offer.  This tells us something about her prioritizing and her values - she thinks it is more important to be a sausage-fingered, money-grubbing whore for hate than it is to help the homeless.

Thank You! I'm happy to see someone else has noticed that there is something mentally wrong with these people.  From watching them on T.V. they look inbred.  They should be classified as an evil cult not a church and should be investigated as such before some grieving person sets their church on fire with all of them in it.  They're too close to Hitler's tyrannical thinking.

They hate it when they can not be heard or seen. If 50 people show up with boom boxes tuned to the same station they can be drowned out. The difficult part is making them unseen.

I say drown them out with the boom boxes. You can't fight hate with hate, as stated above the best way to fight these bigoted ignoramous' is by not letting them be heard. Having ten times as many supporters as they have would be the best "revenge". If NY is "fag infested" so be it! Show up!! Bring your families and friends, bring your boom boxes, leave the boxing gloves at home.

That's when you pull what the kids from Laramie did during Matthew Shepard's funeral: make angel wings out of PVC pipe and white bedsheets and surround the bastards, singing hymns and playing songs like "Give Peace a Chance", "Imagine" and others.

Another way of shutting down Phred's Phreaks fast is to begin a campaign of collecting pledges for every minute the cult is "protesting", then construct a huge sign so that these perverts know how much money is going to a worthy TLBG charity/political group every minute.
