WBC Denied Right to Intervene in Marriage Case. Again.

For the second time, a federal district judge has denied a request by the Westboro Baptist Church to intervene in the lawsuit challenging Kansas’ ban on same-sex marriage. That will come as a surprise only to the Westboro Baptist Church.

    WBC has its knickers in a twist because they’re sure that the courts will require them to perform same-sex marriages. Inasmuch as there is absolutely no reason to assume this, the district court politely told them to get lost.

    ‘If at first you don’t succeed, make a complete nuisance of yourself’ is not a strategy likely to endear yourself to a Federal judge.

    “Your Honor, homosexual marriage damages us all because God hates fags.”

    “Even if a gay person marries another gay person?”

    “Yes. God hates fags.”

    “Would you be okay with marriages where a gay marries a hetero?”

    “No, your Honor.” [Fags]

    “Why?”

    “Because God hates fag.” [Fags fags]

    “Well, it doesn’t have as much fag in it.”

    “Yes, but God still hates fags.” [Fags fags, fags].

    “Fags?”

    “Yes, fags.” [Fags fags. Fags fags.]

    I doubt that the judge’s rejection of WBCs effort to intervene is really a surprise to the lawyer(s) in question. It won’t stop WBC from complaining about it, though, and possibly not from trying again (and again, and again, ….).
