The Topeka-Kansas based Westboro Baptist Church announced Sunday that it will protest the start of a gay marriage law in Rhode Island.

Rhode Island's marriage law takes effect on August 1.

Westboro said in a statement that it was planning protests in Providence, Pawtucket and Cranston starting at 8AM.

“Is the United States population illerate [sic]? Can't you read?” the church wrote.

“The Lord Jesus Christ said marriage is between 1 man and 1 woman for life. This stupid country thinks it can, by popular vote, and a ruling by the Godless United States Supreme Court overrule Jesus Christ when it comes to fag marriage. How stupid is that? God Almighty will not have same-sex marriage. It brings the wrath of God. Homosexuality is an abomination and the fruit of that tree, including same-sex marriage, is completely and totally abominable!”

Lawmakers in Rhode Island overwhelmingly approved the marriage law earlier this year. The state's Senate Republican caucus made history when it unanimously supported passage of the bill.
