This should provide a spot of comic relief in an otherwise unrelentingly toxic panorama of Trump twitter tantrums and progressively bizarre administration staffing manuevers. The WestboroBaptist Church is planning to picket Adulterer Trump on December 4 in Washington, D.C. Newsweek:
This won’t be the first time the Westboro Baptist Church protests Trump — members demonstrated at his inauguration and said they opposed him for “promoting homosexuality, same-sex marriage and the filthy manner of life and idol-worshiping of the nation.” This came despite Trump’s tepid and inconsistent support for LGBT rights during the campaign.
The family-run, Kansas-based church is best known for its inflammatory teachings against LGBT people and its pickets of military funerals. It believes military members are killed because God is angry that America champions gay rights. The Southern Poverty Law Center has designated the church, which has less than 100 members, to be a hate group.
The organization’s pickets usually consist of members holding crude signs with offensive messages such as “God hates Jews” and “Fuck family values.” The church has an inconsistent record with following through on its plans to picket prominent locations and events.
Trump’s open adultery is threatening to the United States, the church says, although it doesn’t specify how. The church also has an interesting graphic of Trump, with lips stuck out like a blowfish pressed up against an upside down American flag and the Bible verse, “The love of money is the root of all evil.”
