You may have heard by now that Westboro Baptist Church plans to protest at Robin Williams‘ funeral. (Because Jesus.)
Anyway, Australian comedian Adam Hills, who hosts the UK show The Last Leg, doesn’t want them to ruin the funeral so he made them a brilliant counteroffer:
… If you really believe in standing up to those threatening the Christian way of life, Westboro Baptist Church, how about putting your money where your mouth is, taking a direct flight to Iraq, and picketing the people threatening to behead Christians if they don’t convert?!
Surely, that’s more of a threat to Christianity than the guy who said, “Do you think God ever gets stoned? Look at a platypus. I think he might!”
And I know there are members of the Westboro Baptist Church who’d say, “Well, the Iraqi Christians aren’t real Christians, because they’re not extreme enough!”
They are willing to have their heads chopped off rather than convert! That’s pretty freakin’ extreme!
I will personally pay for every member of the Westboro Baptist Church to fly to Iraq right now. I’ll even fly you first class and pay the carbon offset!
Because I reckon one of two things will happen. Either you’ll die while defending your beliefs and you’ll be carried away to Heaven in a gold chariot to sit at the right hand of God for all eternity. Or, if I’m right, and I’m willing to bet a dozen First Class flights that I am, God will be standing at the pearly gates alongside a 5’8″ hairy American comedian dressed as a middle-aged Scottish nanny saying, “Hellooooooo!”
And just when you think there’s a chance he might let you in, God will look back and go, “Hey, not only do I love ‘Fags’, but I fucking hate dicks.”
Love it! I’d chip in for that, too.
