Rainbow laces sent to ‘hate-filled vermin’ Westboro Baptist Church
The Rainbow Laces Campaign has sent a pair of laces – and a sharply worded letter – to the notoriously anti-gay Westboro Baptist Church.
Rainbow laces were sent to all Premier League footballers, and every professional team in the UK as part of the Stonewall campaign, which is sponsored by bookmakers Paddy Power.
However, the betting shop has cut out the middle-man, posting a picture on Twitter of laces sent directly to the ‘God Hates Fags’ church.

The letter reads: “Dear hate-filled vermin,
“There is no hell so we cannot take any satisfaction in the eventual damnation of your souls.
“The only consolation is that your odious doctrine of hate is on an inevitable road to defeat at the hands of the truly important human values of compassion, reason and love.

“One day, your poisonous bile will be long forgotten, the world will continue to turn and your descendants will be blissfully unaware of the enmity you once peddled due to a misguided interpretation of God’s will. And quite possibly, they’ll be in gay relationships. Suck on that.
“Please find enclosed some Rainbow Laces should you decide to abandon your futile efforts before their inevitable demise.
“Lots of (heterosexual, homosexual, platonic and all the other kinds of) love,
