The Westboro Baptist Church are infamous the world over for their messages of hate and intolerance, particularly against homosexual men and women. Now, a billboard has appeared in the church’s hometown of Topeka, Kansas, bearing the message “God Loves Gays”. 

The rainbow banner, which sees a cartoon God poking his head up from behind a cloud, was crowd-funded by fans of satirical Facebook Page God, which boasts more than 1.75 million “likes”. Fans of the page raised over $80,000 to mount the sign.

A YouTube video uploaded to the group’s Indiegogo page depicts a cartoon God saying he has “had enough of the madness” and it was time to “fight back with love”.

Cartoon God added: “The world needs to know that God loves gay people”.
