    It appears even something as seemingly innocent as family friendly video game Pokémon Go is not safe from the antagonistic ire of the Westboro Baptist Church.

    In the game – which surpassed the dating app Tinder in most daily active users and is on its way to overtaking Twitter – users wander about their locales, visiting tagged landmarks to find Pokémon of their own.

    One user noticed that the Westboro Baptist Church, based in Topeka, Kansas, was tagged as a “gym” – or a location where Pokémon trainers can claim as their own.

    In this instance, the trainer called “Pinknose” claimed the church – notorious for its vicious protests against the LGBTQ community – for a pink “clefairy” named LoveisLove.



    The church responded to the stunt via Twitter, employing images from Pokémon to spread its anti-LGBTQ message.

    “We recruited Jigglypuff to deal with the sodomite loveislove Clefairy for us,” the WBC tweeted.



    Church elder Steve Drain told USA Today that the church uses whatever tools they can to get their message across – even if that instrument may be a false idol.

    Topeka, KS has a horrible image worldwide because they house Westboro. Do they not care or what ? I do know KS is a big right wing state.

    Protesting at military funerals is as low as it gets, but they keep digging.

    Hard to blame the WBC for Kansas having a horrible image.

    Topeka, KS is the home of Westboro. Thats a burden that they have to bear.

    They have lots of burdens to bear. Kansas is one of the states that keeps trying to add creationism to their science curriculum. The hearings were right there in Topeka. WBC isnt the only church in Topeka full of kooks.
