The Westboro Baptist “Church” is a deplorable group of about 70 people from Topeka, Kan., (just about all of them members of the Phelps family) who see tragedies like Sandy Hook and 9/11 as an occasion to rejoice. They also have a habit of picketing American soldiers' funerals. "God Hates Fags" and "Jews Killed Jesus" are just some of the signs that they carry.
The supposed religious group justifies such disasters as God’s revenge on America for tolerating homosexuality.
In almost every interview, WBC members make themselves look like lunatics, and Brick Stone (a comedian whose real name is Dave Sirius) has now made it his mission to make the group look as foolish as possible, a task he admirably succeeds at.
Instead of trying to communicate with the Phelpses, Stone changed his M.O. into "chasing them away from whatever church, funeral, or PFLAG [Parents and Friends of Lesbians and Gays] awards ceremony they were pestering” and became Brick Stone: Fanatic Harassment Specialist.
Stone spoke with Margie Phelps and Steve Drain, whose daughter Lauren Drain left the cult, and one other unidentified WBC member.
The video was posted to YouTube Monday after the interview took place on Sunday outside of the Malibu Presbyterian Church and Our Lady of Malibu Catholic Church in California, where they were protesting.
Check out a brief exchange Brick Stone had with the group where he blows their logic to shreds:
Brick Stone: Why do the Newtown kids go to hell, but not aborted fetuses?
Westboro Baptist: Because, my dear, they haven't been born yet. You don't understand --
Brick Stone: So at five years old, it is their fault.
Westboro Baptist: Absolutely!
Brick Stone: So are stillborns going to hell?
Westboro Baptist: No!
Brick Stone: How about three days after birth?
Westboro Baptist: Yes.
Brick Stone: Then they go to hell?
Westboro Baptist: Yes!
Brick Stone: That makes perfect sense.
If anyone deserves harassment it’s the WBC, and the funniest part of the video is when Stone holds up a sex toy during the interview instead of a microphone.
