(Newser) – After learning that Westboro was planning on picketing his megachurch today, Pastor Mark Driscoll decided to fight fire with ... donuts. Westboro wrote on its website that it decided to target the Seattle-area Mars Hill "to picket the false prophet and blind lemmings at Mars Hill Whore House where they teach the lies that God love [sic] everyone and Jesus died for the sins of all of mankind." So Driscoll also took to the web, reports the Seattle Post-Intelligencer, writing a blog post titled, "Westboro Baptist Church, This False Prophet and His Blind Lemmings Welcome You to Our Whore House for God’s Grace and Free Donuts."

"If you make it," he writes, "we'll give you free copies of my book, Doctrine, so you can learn what the Bible says about who God actually is, and we'll also provide fresh donuts and free coffee, along with smiles and chuckles." Driscoll, however, wouldn't be around to hand out the goodies. "This false prophet will be at his son's baseball tournament, enjoying time with his wife and five kids. Happy Father's Day!"
