Loving to hate

It is nice to talk about progress and society's rising acceptance levels but the world unfortunately is still filled with people who love to hate. I find it rather ironic that there are churches that take an extreme stances against homosexuality when it is the Bible that says we need to love our neighbours and so on and so forth.

Case in point the Westboro Baptist Church (WBC) in Kansas that travels across the US to picket the funerals of gay victims of murder, gay-bashing or people who have died from complications relating to AIDS and other events related or peripherally related to gay people. Yes, there are people who do that.

Now some might say the best way to address such nutjobs is to ignore them but I like the rather tongue in cheek manner in which people have made their disapproval of the the anti-gay picketing by the WBC known.

The picture below proves that humour is a much more potent weapon when it comes to getting a message across.
