Fred Phelps' message to the people of Great Britain

Dear reader, our blog has moved to a new address.

Do come on over (and change your bookmarks accordingly): rationalist.org.uk

One of the stories I didn't have chance to deal with in great detail while we were producing the magazine was the ban on the Westboro Baptist Church coming to the UK. Which means I didn't get chance to share leader Fred Phelps' YouTube message to us:



Come one, I really think it's time the people behind Westboro and Christian Voice just came forward and admitted to this very funny and elaborate hoax...

PS - if you watch the video to the end, you get the most ridiculus bit, and that's after just hearing Phelps denounce Basingstoke and Jacqui Smith: "For more timely topical Bible commentary go to Godhatesfags.com, Godhatestheworld.com and Priestsrapeboys.com".

Update: Annoyingly, as you'll see, the video has been removed from YouTube due to a "terms of use violation". Presumably that's because YouTube aren't massively keen on hosting deranged homophobic rants. You can still get it on the WBC's website though.

I'm sorry. I couldn't get past the first minute. It's not funny to me. It's extremely revolting.
