Westboro Baptist Church, the extravagantly hateful religious community known for picketing outside the funerals of soldiers and celebrities is planning a visit to Baltimore in early April.

The target of their protests? “The Catholic monstrosity masquerading as Archbishop Curley High School,” Loyola University-Maryland, Catholic High of Baltimore, and the Eastern Regional Climate Preparedness Conference.

There’s never that much logic underlying where Westboro chooses to spew their hate–for example, how they love hoisting “God Hates Fags” signs outside military funerals. But according to the group, Loyola was selected as a target because it is affiliated with the Catholic church, and because it has two LGBT student groups. The two Catholic high schools are being targeted because “the so-called Christians who run these schools and churches teach sin.” And the climate conference? Unclear, but I imagine it has something to do with sin, too.

My favorite thing about Westboro is the amazing counter-protest signs they have inspired. If you have a witty takedown you’d like to share with the world, you can keep up with the church’s planned visit to Baltimore via their protest schedule.

  1. Proverbs 6: 16-19 (NIV)
    “There are six things the Lord hates, seven that are detestable to him:
    Haughty eyes,
    A lying tongue,
    Hands that shed innocent blood,
    A heart that devises wicked schemes,
    Feet that are quick to rush into evil,
    A false witness who pours out lies,
    And a person who stirs up conflict in the community.”

    Sounds like the only thing God hates is WBC!

  2. John 13:35 Jesus said: “A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another, even as I have loved you, that you also love one another. By this all men will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.”


    Matthew 7:21-23 21 “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. On that day many will say to me, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and cast out demons in your name, and do many mighty works in your name?’ And then will I declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from me, you workers of lawlessness.’

    Westboro is not a Christian org – they are a hate cult.
