Since the time we told you about Shirley Phelps-Roper’s email to China Daily columnist Raymond Zhou, everybody’s favourite church, the Westboro Baptist Church has completely revamped its official website GodHatesFags.com (check it out — it actually is looking kinda swanky now). Looking through the site, we found this press release sent out in late January, when China was suffering its worst winter storm in 50 years, praising the Lord for “punishing” China — “that evil nation, awash with the sins of Sodom” — and saying that God was warning China through it all to either “repent or perish”.
The group of Christian loonies which has been known to go on public pickets with signs such as “Thank God for 911,” “Thank God for AIDS,” “Thank God for Katrina,” “Thank God for IEDs,” and “Thank God for Dead Soldiers” also announced plans to “preach to the whole world” — particularly all you “fags” and “fag-enablers” out there — at the Olympic Stadium August 8-24. It’s been a while since we last had some good ol’-fashioned gospel preachin’, so we will be there with bells on (look out for the guys camping outside the stadium in a row of pink tents!). Between now and then, though, we’ll be organising a few prayer meetings to beseech the Lord to please grant our dear preachers their visas.
