‘Fags shall not marry!’ Hate group dress up as Dumbledore and Gandalf after JK Rowling feud

The Westboro Baptist Church has brought Dumbledore and Gandalf’s wedding to life – after picking a bizarre fight with author JK Rowling.

The row came after the ‘God Hates Fags’ church read on PinkNews that Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling endorses the marriage of her character, gay Hogwarts headmaster Albus Dumbledore to Lord of the Rings character Gandalf, played by out actor Sir Ian McKellan.

The group threatened to picket the marriage, before Rowling hit back, claiming “the sheer awesomeness of such a union in such a place would blow your tiny bigoted minds out of your thick sloping skulls”.

In the latest surreal turn, the group have taken to cosplaying as the two wizards – recording a special vine as the pair.

The clip sees the pair reading the Bible and condemning same-sex marriage, with Gandalf exclaiming: “Fags shall not marry!”.

The church members don’t quite have the gravitas of Sir Ian McKellen and Michael Gambon, however.

They tweeted: “Forget fiction, @jk_rowling & see what Gandalf & Dumbledore are reading: 1 man, 1 woman, for life!”

Yesterday, the Westboro Baptist Church inadvertently declared its hatred for the Ivory Coast, after printing the Irish flag backwards on protest posters.

On Tuesday, the Catholic church also spoke out against Ireland’s historic vote, with the Vatican claiming it was a “defeat for humanity”.
