Westboro Baptist Church -- Pay UP, Bastards!
All I can say is thank God someone stood up against these people. The only things more disgusting than their politics are their methods.
BALTIMORE (AP) -- The father of a fallen Marine was awarded nearly $11 million Wednesday in damages by a jury that found leaders of a fundamentalist church had invaded the family's privacy and inflicted emotional distress when they picketed the Marine's funeral.For those of you not familiar with their philosophy and tactics, they're pretty easy to describe and pretty hard to understand.
Basically, they believe that "God Hates Fags". Okay.
Here's where it gets a little trickier. So "God Hates Fags", but because the US is so tolerant of homosexuality (you know, the US is SOOO tolerant, right?), God hates America, and shows His anger by allowing US soldiers to die in the Middle East.
Hmm, seems like a stretch. So if God were happy with our treatment of homosexuals, there would be no US casualties in a protracted, destructive, region-wide engagement?
But get this: Because "God Hates Fags" so much that He kills US soldiers to teach America a lesson, the Westboro Baptist Church picket the funerals of fallen soldiers -- right in front of their loved ones. Yep, they wave signs saying "Thank God for Fallen Soldiers".
So let's recap: The families of dead American soldiers need to be taught a lesson -- one beyond the tragic death of their loved one -- because America is too tolerant of homosexuals.
Seems logical enough, doesn't it?
So here's a big fuck you, Westboro Baptist Church. I hope you get served with as many of these lawsuits as funerals you disrupted with your awful, insane, and Godless ways.
