Gay Couple Marries In Front of Westboro Baptist Church. How About a Mosque?
To protest Muslims hateful rhetoric and intolerance against homosexuality, Gandalf And Dumbledore held a wedding across the street from a mosque...lol, no of course not. They held a wedding across the street from the Westboro "Baptist" "Church." How risky...
The marriage between Gandalf and Dumbldore emerged from a viral news story when Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling tweeted a meme proposing "what if Dumbledore and Gandalf were gay together?" when Ireland passed the country's Marriage Equality Referendum. Westboro then tweeted at the author, threatening to picket a fictional wedding ceremony -- and Rowling had the perfect response.
This back-and-forth between the author and Westboro inspired Plating Peace founder Aaron Jackson to bring the wedding to life order to raise money to counter the hateful messages of the Westboro Baptist Church. Planting Peace is the organization that founded and sponsors the Equality House.
A few things: Westboro are detestable human beings (who the left seems obsessed) that should be marginalized at every opportunity. Also, painting a building across the street from their "church" rainbow colors and opening a LGBT center is some quality trolling. Game has to respect game.
But what if this gay couple tried to get married outside of a mosque instead? Or, what if they tried to draw a cartoon of Muhammad instead? Extremist Muslims hate gay people as much as extremist 'Christians' (yes I know, Westboro's aren't Christians)...actually, that's not true. The latter thinks they shouldn't get married. The former thinks they shouldn't breathe. W
Also, please note that Westboro is a congregation with membership in the teens, compared to the hundreds of millions of Muslims who openly support Jihad. According to my records, no Westboro baptists have ever publicly executed anyone for being gay and/or Jewish... though they are what are commonly referred to as "asshats."
Also, as much as we dislike the Westboro Baptists, this is obviously a deliberate attempt to 'poke the bear'... kind of like drawing Muhammad. Now, we support 'poking the bear' in the name of free speech, but where's the leftist outrage? Why aren't they demanding that these queer Comic-Conians respect Westboro's beliefs in the name of 'civility'? Westboro-phobia much?
Just food for thought. Food for thought.
