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:

I thought this video was hard to watch with Kevin sweating so much. Put a fan on that dude next time!

If I believed in the devil, I'd say that these people were sent by the devil to give Christianity a bad name. What sane or decent person would want to follow the hateful "God" or "Jesus" they're always ranting about? But, of course, they have nothing to do with religion and everything to do with money. Every time they come out with their well-publicized screeches, nutjobs across the country send them money.

These people are demo terriosts and should be treated as such. If you feel an agressive threat from them, should immediately call in the FBI. They will not stop until they dismantle any organization that agrees with their crazy plan. Report them to the police as soon as you feel in danger.

God is a loving God. He loves everyone. He hates the sin but love the soul. We need to pray for these lost people not shun them from God's word. We are to spread the Word of God. How can we do this by saying we hate the lost people?

As someone who is deeply religious, God and the westboro should not be associated with each other. God loves everyone , including Kevin Smith

They truly do hate everyone. I Love how Kevin is using the best logic against people like WBC...."Well, God told me this/that/etc..)" THEIR OWN LOGIC!!! They are so hateful and so incredibly stupid!!!!! But have no fear...when they get to heaven (if they even get there...) they will realize how incredibly ungodly they were.

Other than being a brutal violent movie, it did have a subtle message to it that makes me glad I saw it.

Hey Westboro:

Do you really think your going to heaven for just plain-old hating people? You might want to reconsider your ideals.

Just saw "Red State" on VOD. To be honest I think it's the best thing he has ever done. Brilliantly acted, directed and written. It's not a "typical" hollywood release and WILL piss people off on both sides of the argument...which I find to be a good thing!
If Westburro (yes, that's the spelling I choose) wants to protest I personally think it's the best thing for the movie. It will make people curious and hopefully boost the numbers that go to see what is sure to be one of the most original movies of the year!
