Sick pricks to protest VT funerals

This pisses me off beyond belief:

“WBC will preach at the funerals of the Virginia Tech students killed on campus during a shooting rampage April 16, 2007. You describe this as monumental horror, but you know nothing of horror — yet. “They shall also gird themselves with sackloth, and horror shall cover them; and shame shall be upon all faces, and baldness upon all their heads” (Eze. 7:18).

Why did this happen, you ask? It’s simple. Your military chose to shoot at the servants of God today, and all they got for their effort was terror. Then, the LORD your God sent a crazed madman to shoot at your children. Was God asleep while this took place? Was He on vacation? Of course not. He willed this to happen to punish you for assailing His servants.

I fully recognize our protected rights under the Constitution, but…damn.

Other than these assholes, I’d say that we are all Hokies today.

    To your last sentence, I would only add would add what I wrote this evening.

  • Suzanne

    These people are sick….. How dare they go and preach their hatred.. during this tragic time….

  • Adam Selene

    Absolutely disgusting.

  • Kevin

    Fuck them.

  • Dudley

    Just when you think we couldn’t get any lower, Fred Phelps shows up agian.

    The Phelps want attention, like disturbed children they don’t care what kind of attention, they just want to be noticed. They have us exactly where they want us when we talk about how sick and evil and disturbed they are. They WANT to be “persecuted”. They want to be hated.

    The only way to deal with them is to give them no attention whatsoever. Instigate a complete media blackout. Organize a campaign that encourages people to ignore them completely. No honking, no throwing things when you happen to drive by. No anger, no arguing, nothing. If this plan were fully implemented, the Phelps would either quietly fade away or they would be driven over the edge and start breaking the law in order to get the attention they crave. At that point, they could be put behind bars where they belong and their children could be taken away.

    I only hope that these sick individuals will feel the sorrow and pain that the parents and family members of the VT massacre victims are feeling, only ten fold.

    These malcontents are no better than terrorists themselves. My sympathies are reserved for the friends and family of those who were taken all too soon by a madman, and for them I pray for and throw them the good joss. The WBC get nothing but my utter contempt and wishes that they would have the nerve come to our neck of Virginia for some ‘southern hospitality’.
