An angry, angry man in Vancouver disguised himself as part of a well-known humanist organization in order to sneak into Pride celebrations last weekend and distribute hate materials undercover.
Bill Whatcott has previously been found guilty of publishing and distributing materials that qualify as anti-LGBT hate speech. This time, he made up a fake name and pretended to represent a ministry of the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster (a real organization) in order to get into Vancouver Pride.
He showed up with pink hair and a FSM flag, apparently ready to have a good time. Then, he handed out anti-LGBT leaflets disguised as condoms and went about his day with other Pridegoers.
“I want homosexuals to turn to Jesus and I believe that people can leave that lifestyle behind,” Whatcott says. “I made this Pride parade way more diverse. It’s not all leather men and naked dudes. Now it includes Christian people with diverse messages on homosexuality. True diversity.”
In the “gospel condom” that he distributed to parade-goers, Whatcott claims that everyone is “anatomically heterosexual” and that gay people “suffer grievously because of their sin.”
“In spite of billions of dollars being spent fighting sexually transmitted diseases ravaging the homosexual subculture, homosexuals are still suffering and dying from AIDS and other homosexually acquired diseases,” writes Whatcott, who believes that Jesus Christ can free gay people from the “bondage of homosexuality or any other sexual addiction.”
Oh, lord. Some people will stop at nothing. What a weird story.
