Russell Brand debates Westboro Baptist Church

(Caution: This story is likely to contain material that some may find offensive.)

Brand

Comedian Russell Brand welcomed two members of the Westboro Baptist Church onto his FX series, Brand X. The two members presented Brand with a sign that called him "Fag Pimp Brand," followed by accusations that Brand was an advocate for sin. Brand encouraged his audience to let the men speak, saying it was brave of them to come on a show where most of the audience would not agree with what they were saying.

During the course of the conversation, the two men explained to Brand why they hate the LGBT community, saying that the Bible provides the basis for it. The two men said it was their duty to inform the audience of the errors of their ways, as well as the eventuality that they will all be in Hell.

"Have you considered that the bible, like all religious doctrine, may be allegorical and symbolic, to direct us toward one holy entity of love, as opposed to a simplistic, litiginous text to direct the behavior of human beings?" Brand asked them. "The bible wasn't written by a cosmic entity."

The men told Brand that he does not get to define love, that the Bible does. 

Later in the interview, Brand brought some of his gay friends out, which angered the church members.

A REAL Christian could never say who IS going to hell or heaven. This matter is between GOD and the individual. As for the W.B.C members, consider this: Matthew 7:22 Many will tell me in that day, 'Lord, Lord, didn't we prophesy in your name, in your name cast out demons, and in your name do many mighty works?' Then I will tell them, 'I never knew you. Depart from me, you who work iniquity.'

Actually, half-way through it started being somewhat entertaining. Still, suck. But...

These Quiz-of-Hate -mongers are being given an audience -why, again? *** That bit of Jerry-Springering was painful to watch.
