Ireland became the first country to legalize same-sex marriage by popular vote a few days ago. Now the Westboro Baptist Church, aka the “God Hates Fags” people, are very, very upset at Ireland.
It was bad enough that Riyadh K, a gay Irish video blogger, called Shirley Phelps, the God Hates Fags matriarch, to ask her how he could get into heaven a while back. Now the whole country of Ireland has been turned over to the Sodomites! Well, the folks at God’s favorite church just had to let the world know what the almighty thinks about that!
The Irish Examiner posted a short video from a God Hates Fags protest over the Irish vote. In the video, a protester has an Irish flag, which he is attempting to turn over to show that Ireland is in distress. Evidently he had been paying attention in social studies class, because he knew that flying the United States flag upside down is a signal of distress. But he apparently wasn’t aware that flying a flag upside down isn’t an international convention, but is part of the U.S. flag code. He also had obviously never considered that it wouldn’t work for all flags.
When it comes to the Irish flag, if you flip this upside down:
obviously you get this:
And if you turn the flag around, so that the orange is on the left,
you’re saying that you hate the Ivory Coast. What’s a poor, confused, God Hates Fags protester to do?
It’s always fun to have a laugh at the expense of the idiots from the Westboro Baptist Church. Enjoy the following few seconds of amusement, via Vine and, believe it or not, the Westboro Baptist Church. (Yes, they are so stupid that they apparently have no problem sharing this embarrassing moment with the world.)
