The Lyrics

This is the last RFS song parody and I searched for a topic to match the title. What I discovered was the source of the "God Hates Fags" picketing ministry that originated in a park in Topeka, Kansas. My parody is neither "Pro Gay" nor "Anti Gay". It simply tells the story of what happened. We know the result... which is sad as Rev. Phelps does not represent true Christianity.
In Topeka, Kansas
There is a place called Gage Park
Overrun with crime
Drugs and male prostitution after dark

After an exposé of crimes committed
Of who, what, where, and when
A large percentage of arrests
Were found to be of homosexual men

But although the curfew was enforced
And many arrests were made
The park became the target
Of a minister filled with rage

Rev. Fred Phelps
Westboro Baptist Church leader
Started a picketing “ministry”
Targeting Gays with such fervor

(Chorus)
“God Hates Gays”
“God hates Queers”
“God hates Homos”
“No debate”
Rev. Phelps
Up against “those reprobates”
Created the infamous “God Hates Fags”
From the Ministry of Hate

Now, even Christians questioned
If they could find common ground
Because Phelps was spewing rhetoric
In a manner degrading, obscene, and foul

He claimed the Gay Agenda
He claimed all Gays were pedophiles
He condemned them all to death
Said they all would burn in Hell

But the people in Topeka
Got tired of the stereotypes and hate speech
They just wanted Gage Park back to normal
Not used as a pulpit for Phelps to teach (intolerance)

“God Hates Gays”
“God hates Queers”
“God hates Homos”
“No debate”
Rev. Phelps
Up against “those reprobates”
Created the infamous “God Hates Fags”
From the Ministry of Hate

Media outlets painted Phelps as homophobic
Tarred other Christians with the same brush
But most other Christians don’t follow Phelps
But the words of the Savior, Jesus

Due to Phelps scorched-earth tactics
There was no middle ground
No real ministry, bridge-building
Just a park in Topeka where hate abounds
(Sadly, “God Hates Fags” was spread around)

Rev. Fred Phelps
Homosexuality he abhors
Too bad people know him for what he’s against
Not what he should stand for (true Christianity)!!!

“God Hates Gays”
“God hates Queers”
“God hates Homos”
“No debate”
Rev. Phelps
Up against “those reprobates”
Created the infamous “God Hates Fags”
From the Ministry of Hate

“God Hates Gays”
“God hates Queers”
“God hates Homos”
“No debate”
Rev. Phelps
Up against “those reprobates”
Created the infamous “God Hates Fags”
From the Ministry of Hate

If there is one thing that me and god do agree on is that we don't like gays. ;-) 555! :-)

according to the bible, God loves everyone but dont let facts get in the way. gays need to start an insurance company so they can have their buddy get the benefits too. marriage is already a word - it means the union of a man and a woman. gays and others of same sex need to start a company that honors same sex unions, but dont call a yo yo a car tire just because they are both round. see, simple.

I looked on Allmusic.com and it seems that this song and group don't exist. Therefore I think it was made up. Can anyone show me confirmation and valid proof that it does exist? I doubt it.

First of all, you are talking about my friends who put together a garage band which later performed locally sponsored by local radio stations. They played downtown opening for "The Girls of the 20 Minute Workout!" Our family has photos of them in our family photo albums from the '70s! And Deb applied to Playboy as a potential Playmate! This site is for all songs and performers, right? Allmusic.com doesn't have every single singer and group. I have posted OS by actors on TV, in movies, and little-known people of reality series that have sang songs. Amiright also allows famous poetry, hymns, etc... I thought this was already discussed? Why is it being revisited now?

Btw Editor, the group broke up decades ago and never got a label. Deb married another man other than her BF Rick who was their LS. It's 2016. I have no clue where they all are now. I only got permission to parody 10 songs years ago. I do not now nor have ever claimed to have possessed all of their work. I submitted 10 parodies and the few things I knew from hanging with them. There are bands playing locally in every major city right now that are not on Allmusic.com. Where is it a requirement on this site that a performer or band HAS to be listed there? I'm not seeing any such thing. Btw, since you are targeting me, then I challenge you to go through every single author page here and make sure every artist or band is listed on that site. Fair is fair, right?
