You cannot be EFF’ING serious!
Fringe religious organization Westboro Baptist Church plans to picket former Apple CEO Steve Jobs’ funeral, according to a tweet by top member Margie J Phelps.
Westboro, known by most as the “God Hates Fags” people, travel around the country protesting high profile funerals of celebrities and fallen American soldiers. Their message is predominantly anti-gay and they claim that soldiers’ deaths are punishment from an angry God. They commonly sport signs that read “God hates you,” “America is doomed,” and “You’re going to hell.”
Consensus leans toward strong disapproval of the group, and they are commonly referred to as one of the most despised groups around. But the Supreme Court has upheld their right to protest at these events, saying that their free speech rights cannot be restricted simply because their speech is unpopular or even despicable.
Phelps tweeted this just a few hours ago. Note how the tweet was sent:
A) These people need to be ushered to the closest seat to them.
B) We’re almost positive that Jesus would not approve of picketing funerals.
C) The irony of this entire story is too much to comprehend, and further illustrates the notion that these people are so far gone that there’s no coming back. Word to Drake…
