Lampanelli's GIANT $50K Check

Suck it, Hate Church

5/26/2011 1:35 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Lisa Lampanelli just donated $50,000 to the good people at Gay Men's Health Crisis -- sticking it to the hate-mongering homophobes of Westboro Baptist Church -- and we got footage of the GIANT CHECK.

TMZ broke the story ... Lisa challenged the hate church head on last week -- claiming for every rotten bastard from the WBC who showed up to protest her show in Topeka, Kansas ... she would donate $1,000 to a gay charity.

Lisa couldn't decide exactly how many protesters showed up -- the number was somewhere between 44 and 48 -- so she called it an even 50 ... and put her money where her mouth was yesterday in NYC, donating $50,000 to GMHC in the form of a giant novelty check.

Hate on that.

I love Lampanelli's logic. Who cares where she got the money, who cares who likes her, who cares how many other charities need money also. She did a brilliant act. She helped a cause and made a very ignorant group of morons prove thier lack of common sense. They're probably still scratching their heads. Good job to the Queen of Roasts!!!

For those ragging on her about getting publicity, I'm sure that it's just as big of a deal for GMHC. I didn't even know that organization existed until this thing happened, so consider that it's about more than just her ...

This "church is a bunch of whack jobs. BUT, so are homosexuals and people who think this type of unnatural behavior is normal. They should probably take those funds and donate it to some type of AIDS research given that the disease is spread at a greater proportionate rate among homosexuals due to the unnatural act itself. These people need help!

Leader of the ignorant masses    

I find it amusing that a "church" would promote so much hate and actually think that they are doing God's work. Since the beginning of religion there are those who hide behind God to fulfill their own agenda. A real shame that people focus on the minority of hate spewing loud mouths and not the millions and millions of people out there who are doing what would actually make God proud, Being a good person of faith. Jesus himself even made it a point that you should not judge if you yourself are not without sin. And let us not forget John 3:15. Sad how these people can preach so much from the bible and miss it's point entirely. I wonder how much punishment you get in heaven for using God's name to promote so much hate?

I commend Lampanelli's donation to the Gay Mens Health Crisis but I must ask...The Westboro Baptist Church protests military funerals...why not split that check with a wounded warriors charity or help for military families of service personnel lost in Iraq and Afghanistan?

That would truly be the right thing to do."

NO, it would not be the right thing to do. These hate mongers have been harassing gays long before the war(s). You have no clue.
