“God Loves Gays” Billboard Goes Up Near Westboro Baptist Church September 9, 2014

“God Loves Gays” Billboard Goes Up Near Westboro Baptist Church

After raising more than $80,000 online, Facebook God finally had this billboard put up right next to Westboro Baptist Church — and it’ll be there through March:

The extra money will be used for bus ads and donations to the National Alliance to End Homelessness and The Trevor Project.

God told Mashable:

“For far too long, nasty humans have made God sound like a bigoted jerk… When really, nothing could be further from the truth. I’m super loving!”

Well, those “nasty humans” were probably just quoting the Bible… and part of me wants to scream “citation needed” regarding the billboard’s message, but I’ll let that slide. It’s a great idea and WBC has already responded on Twitter. (One tweet encouraged people to vandalize the billboard by using the hashtag #TagEm, but that account appears to be suspended now.)

Sometimes, the Internet isn’t such an awful place…
