God Hates Bags!

Looking for a statement summer bag, look no further than a parody of Westboro Baptist Church's hateful signs
God Hates Bags, not fags.

It’s officially the start of the summer, whether the weather would like to behave like it or not.

So we need to work out what we’re going to carry our swimming wear (or umbrella) in, and we reckon we’ve found the perfect summer accessory.

Parodying the extremely anti-gay Westboro Baptist Church’s ‘God Hates Fags’ signs, the bags have the backing of bisexual comic Margaret Cho.

The company behind the bag, Revel and Riot, says: ‘Phelps' cult is built on a core of anti-homosexual theology, and their most famous slogan "God hates fags," is also the name of their primary website.

‘Gay rights activists, as well as Christians of virtually every denomination, have denounced him as a producer of anti-gay propaganda and violence-inspiring hate speech.

‘With GOD HATES BAGS, we ridicule the horrible and hateful Westboro Basptist Church’s famous rallying call AND encourage people to stop using plastic bags!’

After all, God hates bags, not fags. They cost $20 (€15) excluding delivery. Check them out here.
