Found by way of dabroots

Apparently Fred Phelps and his buddies from the Westboro Baptist Church are picketing today's funerals of the three slain Pittsburgh Police Officers.

Because God doesn't just hate "fags"; apparently God hates everybody.

I'm all for free speech but I'm NOT for free cruel harassment of grieving people to get publicity, and so I am ALL in favor of these shitbags being shut up by any means necessary.

I dunno. From what I've read, it sounds like part of how these douchebags support themselves is by suing the people who assault them.

Which is not to say I don't understand where you're coming from. Very few things inspire me to violence, but these guys? Yeesh.

I know. Of all the boggling things about these wastes of skin, it's that. I mean, I've been laid off. I spend a lot of time thinking about ways to pay the bills. I can honestly say, "I know! I'll behave in an outrageously offensive manner at funerals after well-publicized tragedies, and pocket the big bucks every time I very justifiably get my ass kicked" has never crossed my mind as a palatable fundraising option.

I don't support "protesting" at funerals, but I will support frenzied partying at Phelps's own funeral when that blessed day arrives. Since Phelps is arguably the best professional assboil in the world, nothing but the best partiers in the world will do. I suggest we start passing the hat now to buy airfare for the Brazilian Carnival crews.

As an off-topic aside, have you thought about doing the Census this year? I did it in 2000, and I'm pretty sure catbirdgirl is doing it this time around. It's a pretty good gig, and the pay is decent to boot.

And by "this year" I mean next year because, contrary to what my brain is telling me, it is not actually 2010 yet.

I gotta get to bed already ...

I was going to ask why, but I think you've just answered my question. Cockroaches have a more fulfilled dignified existence than do these fucks.

Personally, I think God hates Fred Phelps.

I know I do.

They will find some sort of crazy "justification" for picketing absolutely everything that can conceivably be picketed. I mean, this would be shocking if I didn't already know about their picketing the funerals of soldiers killed in Iraq (and, before that, Mister Rogers, among others). I only wish they would start picketing e.g. fringe Mormon compounds, for extra backwards hilarity.

They actually have a rationale for picketing soldiers' funerals (in a nutshell, they say that the government bombed their compound and thus declared war on them (and therefore war on God), and also, "don't ask, don't tell" = fags, fags, and more fags).

My question is ... if the shooter last Saturday had wanted and tried to be a Marine, then, by their logic, doen't God hate him too? And if so, then how could he possibly have been sent by God to kill those police officers?

The logic, it baffles.

It happened, therefore he was sent by God. Except homosexuality also "happens" but that wasn't sent by God. Like I said, they'll manufacture a justification practically after the fact for doing whatever crazy shit they want to do.

Do not pass go, do not collect $200.
