Westboro Baptists File Amicus Brief in Support of Prop 8

January 31st, 2013

I’m sure the supporters of Prop 8 are thrilled to have the Westboro Baptists in their corner. Why, look at the summary of their argument:

The government has responsibility to protect the health, safety and welfare of the people. Of all the harms that a society can face, none are worse than incurring the wrath of God.

And the Table of Authorities has over 20 citations to the Bible!, and a citation to Sinners in┬áthe┬áHands of an Angry God (I haven’t thought of that since high school)!

What exactly is there interest?

WBC began picketing over 20 years ago, warning that homosexuality was going to be the destruction of America.

The brief is authored by Margie Phelps, who argued Snyder v. Phelps before the Suprem Court. Interestingly, Cockle printed their brief.
