Suspended reality star Phil Roberston received an outpouring of support from the Westboro Baptist Church yesterday.

Unlike the church, Robertson was circumspect in his condemnation of homosexuality, telling GQ that “[w]e never, ever judge someone on who’s going to heaven, hell. That’s the Almighty’s job.” The church, however, is adamant that “God Hates F*gs.”

The church will be picketing A&E on February 1, 2014 because, it claims, “F*gs run A&E!”

Westboro also posted a series of skits on Vine that dramatize how it believes negotiations at the A&E network play out:

“Sodomy’s a sin,” the man portraying Roberston says.

“You’re fired!” the man playing the A&E representative replies.

“God loves everybody?” Robertson asks.

“Hm,” the representative wonders.

“F*gs are great!” Robertson declares.

“New contract!” the representative enthusiastically replies.

Another video posted included a bizarre reference to South Park, a show which has mocked the church on multiple occasions:
