Westboro Baptist Church

‘Hatin’ in the name of…

Welcome to the Westboro Baptist Church, where hating is believing. Asserting that nearly every world tragedy is linked to the evils of homosexuality, Topeka, Kansas lawyer Fred Phelps and his extended family have made a religion out of picketing and tormenting gays, their supporters (like Elizabeth Taylor and Ellen DeGeneres) and their supporters’ supporters, like Catholics, Jews, Muslims, Swedes, Mexicans, Canadians, the Irish and… hell, pretty much everyone else.

Though best known for their “God Hates Fags” website and rallying cry, they are also known to pick on those who can’t defend themselves, like dead American soldiers who have fallen victim to the war in Iraq.
