|Westboro mocks NOH8 with new photo campaign|

Well, ain't this grand? Anti-gay Westboro Baptist Church has put out a video mocking the popular photo series NOH8 Campaign (featuring celebrities and regular folk showing their support for marriage equality) on YouTube called “God H8S.”
In the video, members of the church bear painted messages and duct tape on their faces, similarly to the NOH8 campaign, saying things like “God H8S Fags” and “God H8S Adulterers.”
Check out the video below. Warning, it's 25 minutes long.
The wording on some of the text is a little reminiscent of Rebecca Black's “Friday.” You have to give them credit for trying to be culturally relevant though, right?
“& we gonna dispel 19 of the most common misconceptions about the Bible,” the video reads. It might as well have read, “We, we, we so excited. We so excited.”
When the NOH8 Campaign visited Atlanta during Martin Luther King, Jr. weekend, several hundred participants showed up to have their photos snapped by photographer Adam Bouska and his partner Jeff Parshley. Here are some of our favorites.
The Phelps clan has plenty of time to work on video projects these days, as hackers continue to bombard the Westboro family of websites with denial of service attacks to keep them from public view. As of this morning, their sites were still offline.
