San Francisco’s Answer to Westboro Baptist Church

The zany protest sign obsessed followers of the Westboro Baptist Church decided to target Twitter headquarters in San Francisco. They learned it’s probably not a good idea to fuck with people who love writing pithy 140-character lines. #signfail

Here’s another great sign and a post on and a DIY video of the protest.

    Somehow, I don’t think the fundies care who wins the more clever signs contest.

    I understand that GLAAD needs a fake church to show Biblical stupidity to the world.
    But I really wish you guys would not use the fake church to make light of child abuse. I was abused as a child and so were my siblings.
    We all ran away from home in our teens.
    We did NOT adopt out parents’ crazy beliefs nor travel the country with them shouting hatred at people.
    Nor did we financially support them as they beat us. If the Phelp’s kids were abused, they would not be supporting their parents financially nor staying with them past the age of 18. they would not adopt their beliefs. I know Fred Phelps was really a great Civil Rights Attorney who won many awards for his work on behalf of African Americans and what he has done for the gay community is harder to see. I know the reasons he has to be remembered as a madman, but I don’t think it’s necessary he be remembered as child abuser unless the kids act a little more abused.
