So all it seems the Westboro Baptist Cult is good at is turning out positive support for a movement... they must hate that.  LOL

rinse your ass with bleach, because #religion  
 
This "church" submits autistic children to a 'miracle cure' where they are given bleach enemas every two hours, for seventy-two hours, every 'possible' weekend. 
There are almost no words for the inhumanity of this. Someone is not only promoting a treatment of bleach enemas to treat autistic children — every two hours, for 72 hours, every possible weekend — but they've started a religious organization to promote this, with "bishops" and other church officials touting the effectiveness of the Miracle Mineral Solution. Over at Thinking Person's Guide to Autism, Emily Willingham writes:

Literally eating people alive : No kidding. We have heard of Naeglaria fowleri, the brain eating amoeba found in water. Now there is new research that shows that the parasite Entamoeba histolytica , which was earlier thought to kill human cells by toxins, actually eats them while they are still alive.

Article Extract: It used to be thought that the parasite Entamoeba histolytica killed human cells with toxins and only ate them once they were dead--and that during its meals, it would eat cells by engulfing them whole, like other amoebas. But a new study shows that these parasites instead chomp on human cells while they are still alive, taking little bites until the cells die and then moving on.

“This process of nibbling of cells went unrecognized by everyone in this field, including me, for over a hundred years,” study co-author and infectious disease specialist William Petri of the University of Virginia in Charlottesville told Science. This habit of chewing bits of live cells in this way and moving on is remarkably strange, and basically unprecedented. "The ingestion of live cell material and the rejection of corpses illuminate a stark contrast to the established model of dead cell clearance in multicellular organisms."
