Longtime UFC commentating veteran Joe Rogan will stand-up comedy at the Starlight Theater in Kansas City on Friday, Aug. 10. However, the infamous Westboro Baptist Church will seemingly be protesting the event in full force.
Taking to Instagram, Joe Rogan has decided to shed light on the fact that the group has even decided to draft up a newsletter for the matter. Check it out below.
“Kansas City! Im getting protested at my show this Friday by the Westboro Baptist Church! SO EXCITING! The only thing I took objection to was that they said I’m an atheist. I have no idea if there’s a higher power, but I would have to assume if there is one he’s definitely not happy that these hateful twats are running around pretending that they speak for him/her.
“I honestly feel bad for them. All humans are on a path that’s largely determined by many factors outside their control, and these poor fucks have found themselves in a sad state where they seek out attention by showing up places with “god hates fags” signs. I had Megan Phelps on my podcast a while back, and she left the church. Her eyes were opened to how fucked up her beliefs were from talking to people on twitter of all places. It’s a fascinating conversation if you’re interested.
“Because of Megan, I choose to think of all these people as individuals that could be free with the right mindset and the right circle of friends and loved ones – free from foolish, constricting hate that occupies all your thoughts and steals your love and joy.
If there is a god, he/she loves them, and wishes they would get their shit together like Megan has.”
