Westboro Baptist Church

We're A Rabid Dog And

We're Going After "Red State"

9/4/2011 8:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0902_red_state_composite_exThe Westboro Baptist Church has set its hateful sights on the movie, "Red State" -- which will be released in theaters later this month -- calling director Kevin Smith "a God-hating clown."

The Church spokesperson says, "God hates fags, God hates fag enablers, therefore God hates Kevin Smith."

The movie puts the spotlight on a fanatical church whose members kill "sinners" -- many say it bares a resemblance to Westboro.

As for Kevin Smith -- he's unfazed by Westboro's promise to disrupt the movie release.

Smith tells TMZ, "Well Jesus told ME he loved 'Red State.'  He said it makes up for 'Cop Out.'  He also said neither He nor His Heavenly Father have any affiliation with the Westboro Baptist Church."

Smith has more to say about God ... "He loves all the 'Dark Knight' footage he's seen so far on TMZ."

Smith also wants Westboro to know, "'Red State' is available now on VOD."

Check out our recent TMZ Live interview with the director himself below:

These nuts just want attention. No one cares about them and what they do. They hate everyone and eveyone hates them, so don't even give them the attention that's what they want.

I couldn't help mouthing off to these morons when they were outside the Grammy's, and was called every name under the sun for doing so. These losers deliberately provoke people. There's a few Jesus freaks carrying signs who turn up to every event at LA Live, but they can actually be fun to talk too while I'm outside smoking. I hate violence, but Phelps' incestual brood really do need a swift kick to the head.

Loved every minute of this interview. Can't wait to watch Red State. Kevin Smith is so funny and talented - so happy you're losing weight and taking care of yourself.
Bring him back for the TMZ show when Harvey not there! ;)

I am a huge fan of Kevin Smith's movies, but the only thing that makes this movie kind of watchable was John Goodman and Michael Parks other then that it's pretty bad. He also does reference "Fred Phelp's crazy church up in Kansas" in the movie, but clearly states that the church in the movie is even more radical.
