Baptist Church Declares War On Comedian Joe Rogan Over Religion
Joe Rogan, a stand-up Comedian, actor, exuberant voice of the UFC, able to get MMA fans excited for fights that even Dana White might have a hard time selling. Rogan might be best known these days as the host of his podcast The Joe Rogan Experience. Also to recall you that Rogan was already famous as a comic from NewsRadio and the former host of a reality show Fear Factor.
Rogan doesn’t hold a belief in any particular religion but does hold spiritual thoughts. He has been long critical of different religions in his commentary and comedy; also he expresses a liberal position towards the beliefs of others.
Rogan invites different personalities from all walks of life, and discusses from educational, ethnic backgrounds, from politics to science to religion and of course, MMA.
Rogan is outspoken and takes no worry in voicing his opinion on different subjects, and that seems to have brushed the Westboro Baptist Church the wrong way.
The church plans to protest ‘adamant atheist Joe Rogan’ at his show in the Starlight Theatre in Kansas City on August 10 at 7 p.m. local time.
Rogan posted the notice he received from Church on his Instagram, followed by a defense of his non-religious position, saying:
“Kansas City! Im getting protested at my show this Friday by the Westboro Baptist Church,” Rogan wrote on Instagram. “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.”

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.
That’s the official website of the church that may give you a better idea. www.GodHatesFags.com
