Westboro Baptist Church HAS NOT Announced Plans To Protest 2016 Motorcycle Rallies

Fact Check

  • by: Jeremy Smith

There is a trending NOT TRUE story on the internet stating "Westboro Baptist Church Announce Plans To Protest 2016 Motorcycle Rallies." Although the jacklegs from Westboro Baptist Church have been known to protest many things that American's take pride in, this is not one of them. The NOT TRUE story comes from known racist & hoax website Associated Media Coverage, but some people are unaware of that and continue to share the NOT TRUE information.

A small excerpt from the NOT TRUE story:

Westboro Baptist Church spokesperson Lisa Greer confirmed that arrangements have been made for Westboro Baptist Church members to attend and protest multiple motorcycle rallies throughout 2016. According to Greer, the Westboro Baptist Church has already made arrangements to attend the following motorcycle rallies - Sturgis Motorcycle Rally, Rolling Thunder, Bikes Blues and BBQ, Love Ride, Laconia Motorcycle Week, Indiana Boogie, Laughlin River Run, Mrytle Beach Bike Week, and the Redwood Run. Greer told reporters that contingent upon budgetary allotments, the organization may also attend additional rallies throughout the year.

For starters, Lisa Greer is NOT a spokesperson for the church; Shirley Lynn Phelps-Roper, daughter of Fred Waldron Phelps, Sr. is the most known spokesperson for the church. Fred was an American pastor who headed the Westboro Baptist Church.

If bikers across the U.S.A., and the world no less, were to actually believe this NOT TRUE story there might be serious repercussions at any of the said rallies, towards individuals showing any display of religion. According to Westboro Baptist's website, GodHatesFags.com, there are no planned upcoming protests. Such an amazingly piece of crap name for anything, especially a website.
