The Westboro Baptist Church Discovers Photoshop

By on February 20, 2012

The Westboro Baptist Church has perfected the art of real life trolling. During Whitney Houston’s funeral, a Twitter account purporting to be that of the church pastor’s daughter, Margie Phelps, taunted media outlets with low res photos of them protesting the memorial. She wrote, “Did my friends @BET see these lovelies? Such fun singing to @OccupyWallSt This picket is rocking the house! @NJ_News ”

The problem with that is Star-Ledger reporters confirmed the area had been restricted all day and no active protests ever took place. So what happened? Did the church picket the wrong funeral? No, they just photoshopped their protesters into pictures of the actual funeral. Their god is very lazy, you see. While other gods tell people to go the extra mile, the Westboro Baptist Church’s god just shrugs his shoulders and goes, “Meh, good enough.”

    Fake church=fake photo…..

    Westboro Baptist Church spreads its hate through picketing in
    our streets, provoking attacks, with abusive language and flag desecration,
    attempting to create a confrontation. This is not a church, this is a hate
    group.  This is not about protesting,
    freedom, or God. They are in it for the money and the press; this is a family
    law firm. They are not a “church.” It is a scam. They go after
    anything that can get them in the news. This is a family of lawyers using this
    “god hates you” thing to make money. It is time for this scam and the hate to
    end.

    The
    church has received money from lawsuits and legal fees. For example, they sued
    the city of Topeka several times in the 1990s. WBC received $16,500, and is
    pursuing another $100,000, in legal fees for a case won in court. The WBC is
    considered a nonprofit organization by the federal government, and is therefore
    exempt from paying taxes!

    Phelps-Roper
    of the Westboro Baptist Church is shown
    admitting on camera that her oldest son was born out of wedlock. Hypocritical
    Phelps-Roper’s vocal condemnation on strangers having sexual congress outside
    of marriage while she herself was guilty of the same. They are NOT what they
    say they are!! THEY ARE NOT A CHURCH!!!

    You can’t approve of some free speech and not others.
