"God Loves Gays" Billboard Goes Up Near Westboro HQ!
The Westboro Clan not only has the Pride House directly across the street from their Topeka, Kansas headquarters to deal with, members of the hate group will now also come face to face with the "God Loves Gays" billboards that are popping up around town.
The billboards are a response to the Westboro Baptist Church anti-gay hate group and courtesy of a satirical "God" page from Facebook that has raised more than $40,000 on Kickstarter for the project.
‘God’s’ followers pledged the funds in just ten days, and ‘God’ now plans to buy more billboards with the message that ‘God loves gays’ in other parts of the United States if he can raise further funds. Supporters will be rewarded with bumper stickers, limited edition t-shirts and posters saying ‘God loves gay’ signed by ‘God’ himself. Around 1,200 people pledged to fund the campaign with donations of between $1 and $75 for the total package of rewards. God announced yesterday that he had booked the first billboard and that it will be erected in Topeka, Kansas on 8 September.
