The Satanic Temple, a New York-based organization, on Sunday, performed a ritual called a "pink mass" at the Mississippi gravesite of Catherine Idalette Johnston, mother of Westboro Baptist Church founder Fred Phelps Jr.
The Satanists, who support and endorse homosexuality, seek to foster “benevolence and empathy among all people” through worshipping and pleasing Satan. Since the Westboro Church is infamous for its extreme anti-LGBT protests and slurs, the Satanic Temple took it upon themselves to teach them a lesson by turning WBC founder's mom gay for all eternity.
Turns out, overly weird stuff gives birth to equally overly weird opposition. The Pink Mass performed by the Satanists was nothing less than insanity to be honest.
The Kansas-based Westboro Baptist Church is a disreputable group known for picketing funerals of soldiers and hate crime victims and anti-gay views. When the group intended to protest at the funeral of the Sandy Hook Elementary victims in December last year, they were stopped and a petition, calling on the government of the United States to officially recognize Westboro Baptist Church as a hate group was signed which became the most popular of all on the White House website, We The People
According to the Satanic Temple website, which ironically has the URL www.westboro-baptist.com, “Upon completion of the pink mass ceremony, Catherine Johnston is now gay in the afterlife," notes the Satanic Temple website, which has the cheeky URL www.westboro-baptist.com. "Fred Phelps is obligated to believe that his mother is now gay ... [and] if beliefs are inviolable rights, nobody has the right to challenge our right to believe that Fred Phelps believes that his mother is now gay.”
The Westboro Baptist Church Response:
The following tweet was the Westboro Baptist Church’s response to the “Pink Mass” held by the Satanic Temple:
This was probably one of the weirdest stories this year! Don’t you think? A far much better protest against the WBC was staged by a little 5-year-old girl named Jayden Sink last month. She organized an event entitled, ‘Pink Lemonade for Peace’ to raise money for spreading messages of love and peace.
