We are known for protesting funerals all around America, and over seas. We are also known for hitting home with the Media, and websites, and other places where it’s easy to find sin lurking.
This website, is acclaimed for their homosexual users. We plan on preaching the word of God throughout this site, and you will see what you have been doing already, that will lead you to your damnation.” —
The Westboro Baptist Church Tumblr editor, explaining how they’re now going on a Crusade to tell everyone on Tumblr how homosexuality is wrong in God’s eyes. Somehow, with the high population of atheists in the Tumblr LGBT population, I doubt that will work very well. (via deathbypolitics)
I am asking my followers and the rest of tumblr to PLEASE do the following:
Do not reblog anything these people post, not even in response. They want you too. They want the attention.
Do not ask them questions.
Do not write about their tumblr, or link to it.
Do not go to their tumblr.
Please pretend they do not exist.
Make a donation to the Human Rights Campaign. That will be more helpful than giving them any sort of attention at all.
PLEASE PLEASE do not let their hatred spill onto dashboards, even if the responses are to negate the hateful messages.
They feed off of the attention.
Quite a few people have sent me this link. My official stance is that we should all ignore it completely. Don’t spam them, don’t troll them (how would you feel if someone put offensive images in YOUR inbox?), don’t reblog, don’t talk about it. The only way anyone can make a difference on Tumblr is if you pay attention to them. The WBC does not deserve our time.
