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:

Actually, God love "****" very much. If he didn't love them, then why did he create so many?

BTW this web sites polital correctness filter can really be aggravating. On one hand, You can say the most hatefull things and if you spell them wrong or put an asterisk in the correct place you have no trouble. On the other hand you get killed sometiomes even if you have something meaninfull to say - it's really assinine.

Kevin Smith is irrelevant as a film maker and the Westboro Baptist Church is irrelevant as a moral compass. They need each other to gain some attention. Your publicizing them both is only feeding their needs. Ignore them and they will both disappear as they both garner very little support.

I hate to be the one to break it to this church, but God doesn't hate anyone. He may definitely not like what someone is doing, and they may not get into Heaven without repenting, but He doesn't hate them. It's okay to stand up for what you believe in, but in the manner in which they are "standing up for God" (actions/words), they are chasing people away from Him and the church instead of trying to win souls for Jesus!

They're both idiots, the Westboro Church, and Kevin too.

Both are disrespecting the Lord. Shameful.

He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.
1 John 4:7-9

God does not hate anyone...God loves everyone...He is not happy with what this church is doing...and there are plenty of Baptists who are not happy this this church has hijacked their denomination either.
