"The God Hates Fags Church Makes Amazing Vines"

Posted by on Fri, Jan 17, 2014 at 12:23 PM

It's been exactly one week since Gawker's Rich Juzwiak alerted the world to the singular weirdness of the Vine videos being produced by Westboro Baptist Church. "Make no mistake, this family-cum-cult does and says awful things," writes Juzwiak. "If you are very sensitive, you will not see the humor in this. But oh my god, their timing."

Here's but one example.

For a full overview, see Juzwiak's Gawker post.

Just ignore them. They've always been good at their version of PR. Attention is what they thrive on.

While I'm at it-

Oh man, Juzwiak finds the best stuff, and knows how to break it to us. What a hero of the internet. (You too!)

They're just trolling us at this point, right?

@5: They've always been.

But, they're also mentally abusive, and the elder Phelps was physically abusive, beat his children terribly. Check out the insight in the two sets of interviews I posted earlier.

I don't get it, and I don't give a shit. Only in the US would an organization with no power or influence have a platform for publicity simply by screaming loudly.

That was the most obnoxious thing I've seen posted on SLOG. Can't turn the fucker off, even though I have javascript blocked. Amazing. I'll try adblock...

The usual Firefox plugins stop it. Adblock freezes in Google Chrome when you try to stop it...at least on the Mac.
