‘God Loves Gays’ Billboard Campaign Aimed at Countering Westboro Church Sanctimony

Fed up with the antigay, funeral-picketing ways of the Kansas-based Westboro Baptist Church, one group plans to fight back with a cheeky message of love and acceptance — a very, very big message.

A group purporting to represent “the Lord” is raising money to put up a billboard in Topeka, Kansas, declaring “God Loves Gays,” according to CBS San Francisco. A comedian who runs a humorous “God” Facebook page is behind the efforts, the news website reports.

“A mean lie has been put into the world for thousands of years. The time has come to right this wrong. God loves gay, lesbian and transgendered people. God loves ALL people! Therefore, the LORD shall put up a billboard in Topeka, Kansas, that says ‘God Loves Gays.’ The time has come to fight back. With love!” reads the God Loves Gay People website.
