Westboro Church: Brussel Sprouts Are Work of the Devil
The reviled Westboro Baptist Church, infamous for its hate of soldiers, politicians, and LGBT people has turned its attention on the vegetable world.
Mark Ainsworth, a third generation farmer from San Mateo, described how a group of Westboro Church members arrived at his farm and began chanting slogans such as: "God Hates Brussel Sprouts", and, "You Are Doing The Devil's Work". Ainsworth claims that one protestor began digging up the sprouts while another played guitar and sang "Dig up the sprout and throw them out. Let us cast these demons out".
Ainsworth called the police who came and arrested all of the protestors but not before 'hundreds' of sprouts had been damaged.
We asked Mark if he was afraid about what the future might hold for himself and other sprout farmers. "Well, of course these God botherers are annoying when they dig up our crops but I hope the President does something about it. He promised American farmers".
When asked about the incident, White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer said, "Personally I am not a fan of this particular vegetable and the President has never seen one in his life but both of us hate the Westboro Church and the President condemns Westboro Baptist Church for its actions".
