Chapel of Love.

Posted: July 25, 2011 in Opinion


Across the road a small group representing the notorious Westboro Baptist Church, of Kansas, cheerfully waved signs declaring that “God Hates Fags”.
Gay rights activists formed around the queue of happy couples, raised rainbow-coloured umbrellas to shield them from the protesters, and sang Chapel of Love to drown out the shouts, while members of Jewish and Christian congregations arrived with signs declaring that God supported gay marriage.

In this scene from New York’s first gay weddings we see five groups of people, the happy couples, the guests, the West Boro Baptist church chanting their message of hate and another two groups, Jews and Christians with signs saying God supports gay marriage.

Westboro’s ineffective campaign of hate drowned out by not only “The Chapel of Love” but Christian’s and Jews standing together with loving couples sharing their day. I wish I could have been there.

To the couples I say congratulations
To the jews and christians supporting us I say thank you
To Westboro I just ask you to go and read your bible and find out who Jesus really is. I think he’d be at the reception turning water in to wine for them. Oh but ofcourse you probably think it was non-alcoholic.

Lastly, to the Times newspaper, well done, lovely report, well written and concise.
