I am considering taking up a parody sign and picketing with the wackos from the Westboro Baptist Church in the very near future.
My first thought was to carry a GOD HATES SHRIMP sign. Is that passe now?
What message would you put on your sign?
Would you mimic the insanity of their message, or counter with wit and wisdom?
1) GOD HATES
2) I went to a phelps protest and all I got was this lousy poster
"I permit no woman to teach or have authority over men; she is to keep silent." Timothy 2:11
Considering most of protest is done by Shirley Phelps-Roper there is a level of humor to be found there
Interestingly - even ironically - the letters confirmed to have actually been written by Paul encourage the participation of women in religious services, even to the point of suggesting women priests. Another, anonymous, source, claiming to have been Paul, forged letters condemning female participation, including 2nd Timothy.
Oh, so it's the old "Women should be obscene and not heard" thing.
"God is a hater not a debater."
I can't really see past my rage towards the phelps' sick, twisted views to construct a witty one liner here, but I just wanted to let it be known that I loathe and despise them. Sadly I'd be one of the dudes that the police would have to restrain for their own safety. Lol.
