Satanic preacher turns Westboro Baptist Church founder’s mother gay. Sounds legit to us.
The Westboro Baptists, famed for their bombastic “God Hates Fags” anti-homosexual activism, raised the ire of the Satanic Temple.
Via Satanic Temple: 'The idea for the Pink Mass ceremony and website came during the aftermath of the tragic Boston Marathon bombings, during which time the WBC were threatening to protest the funerals of the bombing victims,” explains Greaves. 'Members of The Satanic Temple were in Boston, waiting for them, but they failed to show. We decided that a same-sex couple celebrating ceremony at the gravesite of Fred Phelps’s mother was an appropriate way to meet the Westboro Baptists, ‘in spirit’, but this time on our terms. We believe that his mother is now gay, in the afterlife, due to our Pink Mass… And nobody can challenge our right to our beliefs.'
If there's anyone ire you don't want it's the Santic Temple. The first tenent of Satanisn, "Strive to act with compassion and reciprocity toward all creatures in accordance with reason." Surely their other tenents are more menacing, "Every tenet is a guiding principle designed to inspire nobility in action and thought. The spirit of compassion and wisdom should always prevail over the written or spoken word." Well shit. We got nothing. How about the The Westboro Baptists?
