The Westboro Baptist Church is at it again. The famously hateful religious organization, known for their grand publicity stunts, has decided that they are going to fly to Iraq and protest ISIS.
After announcing plans to picket actor Robin Williams’ funeral, Australian comedian Adam Hills dared the group to put their money where their mouths are and protest real Christian persecution in Iraq. Hills even offered to pick up the cost for the Westboro Baptist Church to fly out there.
“If you really believe in standing up to those threatening the Christian way of life, how about putting your money where your mouth is, taking a direct flight to Iraq?” Hills challenged the group on his show, “The Last Leg.”
The Westboro Baptist Church revealed over Twitter that not only did they intend to take Hills up on his offer, but that they had already protested in Iraq.
“We accepted! Whence tickets?” They tweeted before adding, “Ironically, we have picketed in Iraq before. Google it. #toldya.”
The tweet was accompanied by a picture of the group supposedly protesting in Iraq, though the setting of the picture was not Iraq. Google searches do not show any publicized trips to Iraq.
A trip to Iraq would be dangerous for the Westboro Baptist Church, whose planned protest includes signs reading, “Muslims Die, God Laughs.” ISIS is a militant group that has been targeting and killing Christians since they began. They have committed acts such as beheading Christian children, torching churches, and kidnapping bishops.
