God Hates Twitter

Kansas’s Westboro Baptist Church has become famous for holding no-holds-barred protests at funerals and places of worship. But just because you believe that modern America is a hell-bound bastion of sin, doesn’t mean you can’t connect with the youth culture. First there was last month’s Lady Gaga cover; now they’ve begun protesting outside of Twitter’s headquarters in San Francisco:

“Twitter should be used to tell the punks of doomed America that God hates you!”

The religious group, based in Topeka, Kansas, usually pickets soldiers’ funerals, reasoning that they died defending a gay-loving country. Thursday, they set their sights on a larger target: the headquarters of the social-media giant Twitter.

Everyone played their part as the Westboro Baptist Church immediately antagonized the crowd of several dozen with a rousing chorus of “God Hates America,” while dancing the twist on an American flag.
