Recently, “God” has been making bold, expensive movements in defense of gay people and their lifestyles. The popular “God” Facebook page raised 50,000 dollars to purchase a controversial advertisement for a billboard in Topeka, Kansas. The billboard will proclaim “God loves gays;” it will be up for one year. Topeka is home to the well-known Westboro Baptist Church, along with its loud, opinionated and offensive members. A profession in defense of gay people and their lifestyle from “God,” is extremely important in Kansas’ capital city.

Members of the Westboro Baptist Church are no strangers to controversy. Rain, shine, or snow they can be seen picketing on random corners in Topeka; they often post up in front of Washburn University and frequented establishments in town, graphic and insulting signs in hand. Some church communities around Kansas even let the Westboro group protest within chapel buildings. The group is most well known for picketing soldiers’ and famous persons’ funerals, with a recent threat to protest Robin William’s service. Of course, the group receives backlash from members of the communities they affect.

The “God Loves Gays” billboard will be a much needed addition to Topeka. The 50,000 dollars raised on “God’s” Facebook page ensures that the billboard will show this message for one year; the money also fulfills rewards for donors, goes to charity and supports a website for the cause. Noble movements like this give hope to the Topeka community, in the midst of Westboro’s pessimistic presence. Applaud the group of people who made this powerful movement happen.

Signed. This is an antidote against some of the hate. Thanks Rose.
