Westboro Baptist Church Protests Gay Athlete at David’s Alma Mater

the Westboro Baptist Church protested
gay athlete this is Derrick Gordon from the University of Massachusetts my
undergraduate alma mater Louis we grew up 15 minutes from the University of
Massachusetts Derrick Gordon made headlines in the
last couple of weeks when he came out saying he is gay the U-mass team the
U-mass coach Derek Kellogg everybody incredibly supportive and the
Westboro Baptist Church didn’t like that so five members of the Westboro Baptist
Church showed up they were holding their big signs the
sign said all sorts of crazy stuff including U-mass bag enablers and death penalty for that’s the number four is that cool
on signs death penalty for bags it drew a crowd of about to a
hundred across the street in a counter-protest there is also a rally a fifteen hundred
people who marched at the university campus the
police had to protect the Westboro Baptist Church protesters
the U-mass police had to create a barrier essentially
Louis right I believe is it was on
Massachusetts average is an area you and I are very very familiar with their in order to protect the protesters from
the Westboro Baptist Church the most absurd thing about this is that
if you’re going to do anti-gay protests a school love 22,000 undergraduates with thousands more graduate students in one
of the most liberal parts of the country something like over eighty percent Amherst
Massachusetts and the surrounding some other surrounding towns voted for
Barack Obama in the last election this is the place where you’re going to
have a huge counter-protest when you show up and have to tell you I love the
fact that my alma mater came out in force I
had to be honest they Westboro Baptist Church probably loved
it to you we made for a bigger story more media coverage and it seems like
that’s really all they care about getting I do think that if no one paid any
attention we get the there’s the media argument
right if the media didn’t pay attention were sometimes told this that would be better for everybody that
I actually don’t fully agree with I think it’s important to expose these
views in a situation where I’m arguing with them one-on-one and
it’s a very specific controlled setting if nobody showed up if they were
completely ignored where they didn’t even need police protection because
nobody reacted you would think they would actually stop
doing these protests maybe I but I’ll tell you that you know
what their their media horse they’re worse than any
narcissistic celebrity I their work better for worse david says
it’s all they care about something really funny this I i havent
independently confirmed that this is who it seems to be but we
interviewed Scott lively the anti-gay gubernatorial candidate in Massachusetts
earlier this week and if you go on to our YouTube clip for
that interview you’ll see that there’s a steep terrain who is commenting and and it’s all sorts
of anti-gay negative comments and negative comment about me in the program any purports to be the same Steve drain
who is in charge of Media Relations at the Westboro Baptist Church we have an independently confirm that it
isn’t an account that in every way appears to be Steve drain
from WBC but actually is an impersonator it seems to be Steve drain and he has
been all over our comment threads Louis on
YouTube it seems like he has a lot of time on his hands its probably all he does I I i’m telling you it’s all about how
many people can see us doing our thang and and say what we have to say that’s
all it is one funny thing from the protest that U-mass seven students strip
to their underwear speedo swimsuits in spite of it being
really called there yesterday including senior Alex and the monkey me
monkey is one of the most interesting last names I’ve ever heard said the message was hey we’re secure in
ourselves speedos he said represent what’s
considered gay I’m sure the Westboro Baptist Church
love the guys in speedos running around I I’m sure some of them actually we’re
we’re quite aroused yeah I think it is really really cool that
the reaction has been so positive though today record now look forward to seeing
him play on the U-mass basketball team next year actually attended some U-mass basketball
games this past season and you Masada the better team than
we’ve had in a really really long time and I think that this is actually all
really good attention for a school that is already known as being completely pro
equality in one in the a best places in spite of course all the isolated incidents have homophobia they
exist in most places in the country right now overall just a
very very pro equality place and I’m I’m glad to say I got my
undergraduate degree there let’s take a break we’ll come back we
will talk about really strange comments from republicans about breastfeeding we will also talk about parade
celebrating rich people and your voicemails as always to 192
David P is our voicemail line: call it any time of day

  1. Why did the police just not arrest the Westboro Baptist Church wankers and drag them off to the nearest police cell for causing a public disturbance?  And while their at it, put their children into care.

  2. I fear for the safety of the members of the WBC that attend these protests, they could be gunned down in a drive-by shooting. More than that I fear that there won't be someone to film it and post it to YouTube. 

  3. They are just a joke now. Scrambling for any bit of attention the media & public will give them. The best thing to do is what many do now. Drive/walk right past them & never even acknowledge that they are there. Treat them like forgotten ghost.

  4. WBC is too hateful with their message. They have the right to believe in whatever it is they believe, but to spew and post such vitriol, obscene and downright vulgar messages to present their beliefs is horrible and not to mention disrupting and invading funerals and other public events. God awful people!

  5. Remember! It's Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve!
    It's Jack and Jill, not Jack and Steve!
    It's Batman and Robin, not Batman and Steve!
    It's Tom and Jerry, not Tom and Steve!
    It's Bert and Ernie, not Bert and Steve!
    It's Sonny and Cher, not Sonny and Steve!

  6. You would think that WBC member's would have realized by now that their method is failing; unless that is of course that their true attention is to get citizens to rally behind the LBGTQ community that normally wouldn't. In that case their method is spot on and I would ask that they continue it 🙂 

  7. So to go gay you have to contact the media and tell the world. But hey, why would someone's personal life be bothering me?

  8. they're human trolls looking for $. Don't take the bait. They either amp up to a level where they take it into action & are jailed. Or they just fade away…like an old 80's band

  9. I don't believe they are media whores per se.Whether they had an audience of 1 or 100,000 they'd still 'demonstrate' in public.Unless you've been living under a rock for a few decades then you know who these people are & what they stand for so I don't think anyone needs educating on that point.

  10. Our streets are full of homeless people who are regularly ignored by the public but the vile wesboro idiots get tons of attention. 

  11. This is why WBC pickets funerals. There is no doubt at all that the best thing to do is ignore the WBC. Counter protests just give them more attention. But you cannot ignore them at a funeral. Who is going to leave the funeral of a friend/loved one just to deny the WBC publicity? It's an extremely shitty tactic. 

  12. Homosexual deviant behavior encouraged and taught in our schools we the people dont want this mental illness vote 2016 to stop liberals madness Save our children

  13. IGNORE the PHELPS, the WBC. It is VERY HARD TO, but if so, they will FADE AWAY.? They claim it's a
    COURTESY to tell us SINNERS all of us now- that it is their responsibility to tell us. A courtesy can be returned, translation: IGNORE 100%. IT MUST … BE … IGNORED- it's the only way to destroy the WBC church. I'm not saying hate
    them, or support them- I'm saying FORGET THEM. They are LOSING, but the more
    HATE YOU GIVE THEM THE STRONGER THEY BECOME. It's fascinating finally they say
    THEY ARE THE WORD OF GOD, yet if you read the scriptures they are a bit of "We
    speak FOR GOD." then, "WE DON'T SPEAK FOR GOD!!" Get your story strange WBC.
    DAMN. 🙂 🙂 🙂 And they insult people LIKE CRAZY even when they're not condemning us the other people. lol. Finally, even Lauren left- and others. They're making huge mistakes by letting people leave. Notice I said … LETTING … people leave. Like a cult, they are so arrogant they think if they want to leave then it's no problem. It's either beyond fanatical, or stupid. CPS doesn't investigate this? Jesus… and finally, PARENTING means nothing to the Phelps. The SCRIPTURES are everything, I can understand … if you can put parenting below something else, like Earth's survival. The WBC's reason is to SURVIVE the wrath of God. IGNORE THE … WBC. I'm not against any religion, I'm a buddhist and not a pacifist- but I am against any organization that the only way you can BE in the group/club/cult whatever, is by changing your entire way of life if it is ACCEPTABLE living. WBC though, my God.

  14. The Westboro Baptist Church is not a true ministry nor congregation of Christ because they are liars, murderers, and full of hatred. The reason why they are liars is that they are telling people that God hates which he doesn't. Remeber John 3:16 "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life."
    John:3:16 Also God made us in his own image and in his likeness so we are special to him. Genesis 1:27 "So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them."
    Genesis:1:27 Another reason why they are liars is that they claim to love God, but yet thay hare certain people. How can you love what is not seen when you can't even love what is right in front of you. 1 John 4:20 "If a man say, I love God, and hateth his brother, he is a liar: for he that loveth not his brother whom he hath seen, how can he love God whom he hath not seen?"
    1 John:4:20 The reason why they are murderers is that if you hate somebody then you are a murderer at heart. 1 John 3:15 "Whosoever hateth his brother is a murderer: and ye know that no murderer hath eternal life abiding in him."
    1 John:3:15 Now don't get it twosted God loves anf he loves everybody, but if you don't abide by his word and follow it then he will send you to hell. For God hates all sin and sin inlcides lying, murdering, stealing, adultery, idolatry, homosexuality, lust, disrespecting your parents etc. Leviticus 18:22 "Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination."
    Romans 1:27 "And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet."
    1 Corinthians 6:9 "Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind,"
    1 Corinthians:6:9
    1 Corinthians 6:10 "Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God."
    1 Corinthians:6:10 Now the Westboro Baptist Church are doing the deeds and the lusts of the devil. They are leading people away from Christ and they are decieved and don't know that they are on their way to hell for what they are doing. They are making it harder for the true Christian to get people's souls to Christ and are literally hindering the gospel. The devil is a liar and was a liar from the beginning and has no truth in him. He is out to kill, steal, and destroy and to seek whom he may devour. He is doing this because he wants you hell and in everlasting destruction. He doesn't want you to see heaven because he was their before, but he messed it up by trying to obwrthrow heaven and God and lost and as a result he was casted into hell for eternity and took 1/3 of heaven's angels with him because they followed him and they became demons. John 8:44 "Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it."
    John 10:10 "The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly."
    1 Peter 5:8 "Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:"
    1 Peter:5:8
    Revelation 21:8 "But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death."
    Revelation:21:8 Now if you want to get saved and dedicate your life to Christ all you have to do is believe in your heart and confess with your mouth that Jesus is the son of the most high God and that he died on the cross for our sins and rose in the third day. Also, from your heart sincerely repent of your sins. Now make sure you find a nice Church to go to and make sure you study the word so you can show yourself approval and so that you may have knowledge of the word. 2 Timothy 2:15 "Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth."
    2 Timothy:2:15

  15. You know if you don't want to be gay you don't have to be because it is a sin and sin is a choice and if you want to get out all you have to do is believe in your heart and confess with your heart that Jesus is the son of the most high God and that he died on the cross for our sins and rose on the third day. Also, from your heart sincerely repent of your sins. Also ic you are struggling with sin and if you need help call on God and ask him to deliver you and he will take it away from you and he will help you, but you must not do it again.

  16. I'm so confused by why anyone have the energy to protest against homosexuality. From my point of view all people can be divided into two categories: those who are homosexual and those who are not. Those who are homosexual presumably likes homosexuality; and those who are not homosexual should not care about homosexuality. I don't see any room for people disliking homosexuality. Perhaps apart from those who don't want to accept their own homosexuality.
