‘Oh, Here We Come A-Gay Bashin’

Generally, we just ignore Fred Phelps and his Westboro Baptist Church since “Do Not Feed the Trolls” is as good a strategy in real life as it is on the Internets, but this musical video holiday greeting from the church is so entertaining, we had to share. It’s called “Santa Claus Will Take You to Hell” and boy, if you’ve ever wondered what a five year-old sounds like while singing lines like “Don’t leave your kid with this red fright/ Just like a priest, he’ll rape them at night”, mystery solved.

View it after the jump.

I guess I should be really mad at all the nonsensical hate spewed here, but mainly I feel awful for the poor little blonde girl in the video whose recollections of the holidays will be “Oh, yeah– that was the time of year when Mom & Dad made me hold up a sign that read ‘Fag Xmas’ with a picture of Santa being sodomized by the Devil.” These people are sad and misguided– and surprisingly good at harmonizing.

    Thanks for the laughs and for drawing sympathy to our cause, Westboro Baptist Church! And a very merry fag xmas to you, too!

  • hardmannyc

    Yawn! Phelps & Co. are like the Bart Simpson of gay bashing protesters, jumping up and down on the sofa while the grown-ups talk and yelling “Look at me! Look at me!” They’ve actually managed to become boring.

  • walt zipprian

    That is JUST adorable. yo.

  • Willie Hewes

    Wow, they look like they had so much fun with that. It just gets you into the spirit of things, doesn’t it?

    Happy Fag Christmas Phelpsies!

  • Michael vdB

    Hmmm…we both believe in mythical figures then…don’t we?

  • ask ena

    Wow…I don’t get it…

  • bobito

    I think we must leave them to the tender mercies of their dark and hate-filled god.

  • Connor

    Oh, I’m sorry..but doesn’t your god teach you not to pass judgement on others? That that right is specifically left for him? Funny, you bunch of red-neck hypocrits.

    Rick Warren is giving the Inaugeral INVOCATION

    It feels like election night deja vu, all over again.
    As LGBTs were celebrating with the rest of America Obama’s VICTORY, at 11 pm we get a shiv shoved in our backs, courtesy of Rick Warren and the LDS Church…..prop 8

    I hope every queer and our friends attending the inaugeral, TURN YOUR BACKS on Rick Warren, a single finger salute wouldn’t hurt either.
    I am so disappointed the president to bring America TOGETHER, takes the first opportunity to DIVIDE US!

  • seitan-on-a-stick

    Wow, Satan looks kinda sexxxy. Was that Reverend Flypaper’s intent?

  • Brightshadow

    I watched this before reading the commentary, and I was convinced it was a rollicking gay parody. Guess not, eh? (On more objective grounds: splendid diction by the singers.)

  • bobito

    Mark – yeah, it’s really crappy news, and I hope people DO turn their backs on Warren, but I suspect that mostly they’ll be too polite to do so.

    But I don’t really know how much of it is President-elect Obama’s fault – the Inaugural Committee chose the guests, and while Obama is a member of that committee along with Joe Biden, its chairman is Dianne Feinstein & other members include Senator Bob Bennett, Ranking Member of the Senate Rules Committee; Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid; Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi; House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer; and House Republican Leader John Boehner.

    While I would hope that the President-elect has veto power in this committee, I don’t know if that’s the case? It’s a moot point anyway, because if he does, he didn’t use it. Which sucks.

    Was that video really meant to be so camp?

  • Johnathan Moore

    Social services should take the children away from these people and attempt to deprogram and save the minds of those poor things.

  • paul-e-wog

    If these are the people I’d have to live with for eternity in Heaven, I choose Hell.

  • Dave

    Well their having a gay old time now about this idol thing aren’t they just replacing one idol with another? And I’m not talking about God or Jesus here – I mean their pastors, have you ever seen a far right group where they don’t idolize the pastor’s crap (metaphorically and otherwise)? Any who happy holidays to all – even the incredibly creepy real life Brady Bunch up there – Westboro is the one composed of 4-7 families right? I get the feeling they’re not into marrying outside their faith.

  • N.O.Y.B.

    What the fuck? These Christians/Baptist/Whatever they are really need to get their heads out of their asses. So Santa’s not real. What makes them so certain God and Jesus are? A lot of those signs made me laugh “God hates Obama” why? I thought God loved everyone. And if you really think about it, all religions are worshiping the SAME “God”. Religion is what causes wars and economy drops. Not the other way around.

    I apologize to any of you who are extremely religious…

    Does God love sickos?
