LAS VEGAS, Nevada (The Adobo Chornicles, San Francisco Bureau) – When Manny Pacquiao meets Timothy Bradley, Jr. for the third time on April 9 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, he will be met by a picket line by the homophobic hate group Westboro Baptist Church (WBC).
WBC is known for its rhetoric against homosexuals and has staged pickets at many high-profile events, including funerals, espousing its belief that “God hates fags.”
So, why are the WBC members picketing Pacquiao when he is on their side?
TOPEKA, Kansas (The Adobo Chronicles® ) -The Westboro Baptist Church (WBC) is an unaffiliated Baptist church known for its hate speech, especially against LGBT people, Jews and politicians. It is known for picketing public events, including funerals, and uses social media to condemn what it thinks is against God’s law.
So naturally, one would expect WBC to come to the aid of jailed Rowan County clerk Kim Davis who defied the Supreme Court by refusing to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples because of her religious conviction.
Instead, WBC aligned itself with the homosexuals by attacking Davis’ own morality for being divorced multiple times, remarrying and having children outside of marriage.
On Sunday, WBC members marched through Topeka not with their familiar signs of “God Hates Fags ” or “Fags Go To Hell.” Rather, they carried signs that read “God Hates Divorcees,” and “Adulterers Go to Hell.” The church’s Facebook page was also filled with hate speech targeting Davis.
TOPEKA, Kansas (The Adobo Chronicles) – Yesterday, The Adobo Chronicles reported that the Westboro Baptist Church (WBC) was planning to picket the still unannounced funeral services for Leonard Nimoy, a.k.a. Spock of the classic ‘Star Trek’ series.
The online news source, The Inquisitr reported that WBC associated their picket threat with other Star Trek stars, and the things about those stars that the group opposes: George Takei and Zachary Quinto, who are openly gay (the WBC’s favorite conversation piece), and William Shatner, who the Westboro Baptist Church claims “hates God.”
But no one messes with Star Trek fans!
Star Trek fans from across the U.S. and elsewhere have begun descending upon Topeka, Kansas, headquarters of WBC. Beginning at midnight tonight, the fans will form a human chain around the WBC church to prevent members of the hate group from leaving Topeka and from making good their picket threat.
The human chain will remain in effect 24 hours a day, everyday, until Nimoy is laid to rest.
Star Trek fans are encouraged to participate in the human chain by registering for a minimum shift of three hours and to come dressed as their favorite Star Trek character. The rainbow-colored house across from the WBC church will serve as registration and command center.
Anticipating a huge Star Trek fans turnout, organizers said they plan to set up not just one but as many human circles as possible around the church. They even expect to break the Guinness World Record for the most number of concentric circles in a human chain ever.
