Westboro Baptist tried to make a comeback outside the Oklahoma school where Nex Benedict was beaten. It only lasted 15 minutes.

Until the Westboro Baptist church imploded a few years ago following the death of its founder and scathing revelations from former members, it was the most viciously anti-LGBTQ+ organization in the nation. Members traveled across the country to protest outside of funerals and crime scenes with vile signs, cheering on the deaths of LGBTQ+ people and allies.

This week, the group attempted to stage a comeback by cheering on the death of Nex Benedict, a nonbinary teenager beaten in an Oklahoma school bathroom. While six members of the cult showed up to spew vulgar claims of Biblical justice, over 400 people showed up to block them from view. The church’s protest lasted approximately 15 minutes before they fled.

When Westboro Baptist protests high-school football player Jake Bain today, they’ll be outnumbered.

Benedict, a 16-year-old transgender student of Choctaw descent, died on February 8, a day after a violent altercation with three other students in a bathroom at Owasso High School West. An official cause of death has yet to be determined, pending a toxicology report. Nex’s mother, Sue Benedict, has indicated that Nex had been bullied because of his gender identity.

Westboro came into the national spotlight in 1998, when it picketed at the funeral of Matthew Shepard, an openly gay student who was tortured near Laramie, Wyoming, in October 1998, then tied to a fence and left to die. Locals shielded grievers

by making costumes of angels and using their wings to block the protestors from view.

The church’s motto was “God hates f*gs;” they openly celebrated AIDS as retribution for gay sex and blamed every national tragedy on America’s “acceptance” of LGBTQ+ people. After the September 11 terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center, congregants held signs that said, “Thank God for 9/11,” while others burned upside-down U.S. flags.


JB Comments:


When you use children - as in the picture above, and distort their minds with hate filled anger and loathing towards the LGBT community - or anyone come to that, using distorted views from a 2,000 year old book that is MASSIVELY MISINTERPRETED AND MASSIVELY EDITED SO IS NOT THE WORD OF GOD AT ALL, then you are GROOMING THAT CHILD - pure and simple. You are filling their young and impressionable heads full of hate filled venom.


These are the religious NUTS who scream and rant and rave about gay people, trans people and anyone they do not like - and abuse is too simple a word for the harm and emotional damage they cause not just to the victims they are screaming against, but to their own children - as above.

This is GROOMING - and NOTHING IS SAID OR DONE and yet gay men in the USA and trans are screamed at for being groomers WHEN THEY ARE NOT - IT IS ALL REFLECTION FROM THE REALITY THAT THE CHURCH - in this case - are the abusers.

This kind of religion DISGUSTS TO MY VERY SOUL & even God is DISGUSTED.
