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:

TMZ and other media reward Westboro Baptist Church with the publicity they seek and are responsible for helping to give power to their mental illness.

Why does TMZ keep giving these lunatics the attention they crave? I want CELEBRITY NEWS, not stories about a tiny group of insignificant, loud-mouthed bigots.

As a Cristain Westboro church makes me ill. God/Jesu*****es no one and if Westboro would actually read the bible they might learn that. Bending the bible is what leads many away from god and what taints religions. God loves all, regardless if he/we agree with others decisions, sin is sin and if we can be given grace for some thing we can for all.

since when does God "hate" anything? Those people are totally retarded, what do theydo, sit down and have a one on one conversation with God and he tells them what he likes and dislikes lol, why can't a suicide bomber stand in the middle of those people?

Not that I agree with the antics of the Westboro Church, but they have nothing to fear. All of Kevin Smith's film bomb.

The word "church" is too generously granted to any group who grabs it.
Let's call them Westboro Circle/Fellowship/Confraternity, whatever. But not church, please

We can all give praise to our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, he loves us all, and through reconciliation are forgiven our sins.
