Last week, British comedian Adam Hill issued a challenge to the hate group the Westboro Baptist Church on his BBC show The Last Leg. In the above video, you can see him ridiculing the virulent anti-gay church for their most recent protests against beloved late actor and comedian Robin Williams.
At the end of his rant, however, he issued a challenge: that the members of the church go to Iraq, where they’re likely to encounter far more hostile anti-Christian sentiment. He even offered to pay for every WBC member to fly to Iraq to picket “the people threatening to behead Christians if they don’t convert.”
What Adam Hill didn’t count on was that the church might call his bluff on their Twitter account.

Hill has yet to respond back on if he’ll really put his money where his mouth is, but he’ll supposedly address it on this week’s episode of The Last Leg, which airs tonight.
If the members of the Westboro Baptist Church does win an all-expenses paid vacation to lovely Iraq, they won’t be there during the best time, considering the recent airstrikes against ISIS, an Islamic group that has seized a number of cities in the area and beheaded American journalist James Foley.
