Memebers of Westbro Baptist Church staged a protest against Fashion Week outside Lincoln Centre this weekend, before rolling the hate wagon onwards to protest at 9/11 memorials. Yeah, nice folks. So Christian!
Their spokesman, Steve Drain, had this message for the fashion lovers of the world:
“The whole thing is vanity! You’re going to teach the women, especially the young women of this country, to doll themselves up … All you are doing is teaching girls to be proud whores! The whole idea [of the] fashion industry is to make women look as whorish as possible and men look as effeminate at possible. Put some jeans on and fear God. Forget about all this fashion nonsense.”
So that told US, then! Putting jeans on now! God forbid people get… DOLLED UP!
Westbro also hate “fags”, women, and, well, just about everyone, basically. More reasonable Christian groups must be banging their heads off their desks right now and cursing them for preaching the exact OPPOSITE of love and tolerance.
We would say more about this – and honestly, the fashion-related comments are by far the LEAST offensive part of this group’s message, as you can see from the image above – but honestly, it would be like shooting fish in a barrel, wouldn’t it? After all, they’re doing such a good job of discrediting themselves that our work here is done…
