The Westboro Baptist Church, the so-called religious group often milking tragedy to push their own anti-gay agenda, is getting a taste of its own medicine from a New York group called the Satanic Temple.
These Satanists, contrary to what you might believe, are actually striving to promote “benevolence and empathy among all people” through Satan, and they’re taking aim at the WBC for doing the opposite of that with their “God hates gays” message.
As we have already reported, several members of the Satanic Temple gathered at the Mississippi gravesite of Catherine Idalette Johnston, mother of WBC founder Fred Phelps Jr., for what is known as a “pink ceremony.”
Two gay couples, one female and one male, kissed over the grave as an “official” loomed over them.
The purpose of the ceremony was to turn the late Johnston gay in afterlife, for eternity.
“Upon completion of the pink mass ceremony, Catherine Johnston is now gay in the afterlife,” the Satanists write on their official website.
“Fred Phelps is obligated to believe that his mother is now gay... [and] if beliefs are inviolable rights, nobody has the right to challenge our right to believe that Fred Phelps believes that his mother is now gay,” they continue.
In other words, if the WBC continues to attack the gays with their hate messages, they will also be attacking the mother of the founder of the church.
In a statement to the media, Satanic Temple is now saying they have plans for even more such “pink ceremonies,” which will turn even more members of the WBC into gays in death.
“We intend to perform the pink mass for both Fred Phelps's father and great-aunt who raised him after his mother's death, but only in reply to their future pickets. The pink mass could be used to protest other anti-gay hysterics, but it is particularly appropriate when applied to Westboro,” they say.
The WBC is yet to respond to this.
