POC POD Episode 7 is out! We talk missing #armada #flipthe6th #trumprussia #Frenchelections

Pokemon Go brings #loveislove to Westboro Baptist Church.

July 11, 2016


The Pokemon Go ( App Store or  Google Play  ) launched July 6. In less than a week, it’s already soared to the top of the App Store and it's almost about to surpass Twitter's daily users.

Nintendo stock is not the only thing surging as the app is making more revenue and getting more downloads than any other iPhone app but it's also even getting a little political.

The game involves roaming around in real life (novel we know,) using your phone’s GPS and your camera to catch Pokemon based on your location. Just look around, it won't take you long to see people are out and about holding up their phones at awkward angles, trying to catch everything from the scarce Dragonairs to one of the millions of Zubats annoyingly flapping around.

However, in what’s arguably the most glorious thing to happen yet in connection to the game, a giant Clefairy has apparently taken over one of the locations of the notoriously homophobic Westboro Baptist Church.

The fairy Pokemon is nicknamed ... wait for it ... ‘LoveIsLove.’ The creature can be found as soon as you’re within range enter the church.

In response the church has put up a jiggly puff to protect the gym. umm. One of these things doesn't belong with the other.

Considering how much Westboro Baptist Church hate the free world, seeing them invaded by an unapologetic gay-rights-touting mythical fairy who looks like a giant pink marshmallow is a little bit fabulous.

Weird Bigots Who Suck The Life Out Of Everything Good In This World: 0. Pokemon Go: 1.
