The Lovely 'God Loves Gays' Billboard Campaign and How You Can Help It

God himself has decided to do something about the disgusting bigotry of the Westboro Baptist Church and has taken to Indiegogo to raise money to erect a billboard in Topeka, Kansas (home of the “church”) that reads “God Loves Gays.”

Now, whether you think it odd that God in all his power has to resort to crowdfunding, or if you don’t believe in God’s existence to begin with is an important point but besides this one: This is a clever, thoughtful and potentially effective way of eradicating some hate in a very hateful part of America.

“BEHOLD!,” God said on Indiegogo. “God is tired of having hate-speech put into his mouth by bigots. Therefore, the LORD shall put up a billboard in Topeka, Kansas that declares to all that ‘God Loves Gays’!”

The campaign is asking for $50,000 to keep the billboard up and running as long as possible. They’ve already hit $48,200 (and counting), so that shouldn’t be a problem. And if they go beyond it, their aim is to put up billboards in other states as well.

Check out God’s video below, and contribute to the Indiegogo here:
