Westboro Protests the NBA ‘Cause It’s “Full of Fags”

Oh, hi Westboro — what took you so long?

We guess it was only a matter of time before the Westboro Baptist Church, everyone’s favorite hate-mongers masquerading as a religious group, weighed in on this week’s cause for eternal damnation: Jason Collins coming out.

Westboro has decided to picket two NBA games, because, as every Christian or Knicks fan knows, #GodH8sTheNBA:

[T]he church has announced plans to picket at both Wednesday’s Game 5 between the Oklahoma City Thunder and Houston Rockets, and Thursday’s Game 6 between the Chicago Bulls and Brooklyn Nets. Apparently the Big Man Upstairs, according to the Westboro Baptist Church, is really ticked off at Oklahoma City star Kevin Durant for wagging his fist at the sky before telling reporters that if [Collins] was “happy, that’s cool with me.”

That Collins is on neither team matters not since according to the WBC the NBA is just “full of fags.” They’re hanging off the rafters, clinging to the backboards and lurking in the locker rooms. WBC released a flier along with the statement on their proposed picketing as a reminder to “the world that God still h8s fags.” In case anyone forgot.

Of course, these “protests” usually involve a handful of people with armfuls of signs and only really serve as a reminder that inbreeding is a really bad — and really ugly — idea.
