Russell Brand Interviews Two Members Of The Westboro Baptist Church




In 10:53 minutes of pure political theater, master provocateur and “cheeky” Brit comic, Russell Brand, took on two of the Westboro Baptist Church with a mix of crass and comedy on his new show, Brand X.



From Queerty.com:

Known for advocating that “God Hates Fags,” picketing the funerals of LGBT veterans and praising natural disasters as God’s punishment for those eternally-damned homosexuals, the WBC was bound to make for a great sit-down with a man they’ve branded as a “Fag Pimp.”

Steve Drain (the one wearing the charming PriestsRapeBoys.com T-shirt) and Timothy Phelps (most likely of the notorious Phelps klan) gifted Brand with a large placard bearing that endearing title and then the three got to talking about the Church’s favorite topic: gay sex.

1. Bookmarking for later, there is a Fundie taking a nap at my house.

GF's mom from Milwaukee. She lets God make all of her decisions.

I usually keep musicians' hours and when I awoke GF and mom were gone. Leaning against my French Press coffee thing was a 50-page booklet titled

In Touch
Let us adore Him

At least I now have a calendar for December which tells me which Bible chapters to read every day.

If I play bottleneck blues, she thinks it is Devil Music.

If I play the same stuff on a lap steel, it's OK because they have one in the church band.

I cannot figure those folks out.

3. Wow those kids all look so similar!

I can't believe that is Timothy! I do not know the other guy. I have to listen to this even though I am not a fan of Russell Brand.

4. That was so funny

OMG...I now think I love Russell Brand
The only movie I've liked him in was Rock of Ages....he handles that far better than people who train in interviewing. Great job
