This has to be a joke. It just sounds like a joke. Especially when they flashed “Fags Die God Laughs” on the screen. If it is indeed real, then, please, someone smite them. That’s when God will really laugh.
Yes, this is the same “church” that goes out and mocks the burials of soldiers who are killed overseas, and who gloat over all the people killed in the September 11th terrorist attacks, who send celebratory cards to the parents of children who die, and who rejoice at every accident and disaster that happens. They’ve been doing it for decades now, gaining funding by constantly pushing and pushing and pushing at people until somebody finally does something that lets them sue for huge amounts (they have their own legal service). A great bunch of people.
They’re basically the “Christian” version of all those little pseudo-Islamic hate groups that provide so many of the cannon-fodder terrorists in places like the Middle East. They even have their own little fenced-in compound and everything. So far, though, Westboro hasn’t gone much beyond using intimidation and bullying.
