‘God’ of Facebook crowdfunds billboard saying he loves gays to spite Westboro Baptists
19 August 2014

The brain behind Facebook’s popular ‘God’ humor page has crowdfunded over $US40,000 in a campaign to erect pro-gay billboards in the home town of the anti-gay Westboro Baptist Church.

‘God’s’ followers pledged the funds in just ten days, and ‘God’ now plans to buy more billboards with the message that ‘God loves gays’ in other parts of the United States if he can raise further funds.

Supporters will be rewarded with bumper stickers, limited edition t-shirts and posters saying ‘God loves gay’ signed by ‘God’ himself.

Around 1,200 people pledged to fund the campaign with donations of between $1 and $75 for the total package of rewards.

‘God’ is hoping to raise a campaign goal of $50,000 in 60 days to completely fund the project and all supporter rewards, and he has also bought the rights to the web address www.godlovesgaypeople.com to further the campaign.

‘A mean lie has been put into the world for thousands of years. The time has come to right this wrong,’ ‘God’ says of his campaign.

‘God loves gay, lesbian and transgendered people. God loves ALL people!

‘Therefore, the LORD shall put up a billboard in Topeka, Kansas that says "God Loves Gays." The time has come to fight back. With love!’

God announced yesterday that he had booked the first billboard and that it will be erected in Topeka, Kansas on 8 September.
