Westboro fags’ bright idea

| December 9, 2010

Squidthoughts sends along a tip that the Westboro “Baptist” Church fags had a brilliant idea to raise money. They’ve decided to protest at Elizabeth Edwards’ funeral. I guess that’s the only route left for them since many Americans are using force and the threat of force to deter them from attending many funerals.

I don’t think much of Edwards’ husband, but i can’t help but think of the venom their children will forced to suffer at the hands of these bottom-feeding, inbred halfwits.

Their press release is complete insanity and I’ve put it below the jump;

    I despise and loathe these scumsucking drag queens. I sincerely hope that their van breaks down out in redneck country on the way to the funeral. That would be the last anyone would ever hear from them.

  2. Jacobite says:

    “….her Smashmouthed assault……………brought more GodSmacks…”

    Are you sure this is legit and not a parody? If it’s legit it’s laughably funny……

  3. PintoNag says:

    Hmmm. They must use a different version of the Bible than I do. I could have sworn I read something in mine about being compassionate and loving.

    Their copy must be different.

  4. Mommynator says:

    I cannot express my loathing for these people.

    It’s not up to them who is in heaven or hell. The presumption to speak for God on matters of the heart that only He can see and judge is evil, plain and simple.

  5. They are no better than reptiles, their primitive neural non-brains drawn only to heat and movement. There will be major media coverage and thus a lot of heat and movement at Elizabeth Edwards’ funeral.

    I too am not a fan of her husband. However her battle with disease, the loss of a child, the burden of preparing her children for her death, and dying with some kind of dignity are apolitical in my opinion.

    My concern is with her children. I agree with Jonn, and it’s what compelled me to send this to him. No matter how anyone thinks they’ve been prepared, they still suffer massive grief at the loss of their mother. And now they will have their last moments with her tainted by the sight of raving lunatics holding huge signs that Mommy is in Hell?? A delightful memory to have.

    HELL NO! Somebody please shut these assholes up!

    They are psychological and rhetorical terrorists who don’t belong anywhere except a flea-bitten, mosquito-infested backwater swamp piece in a sweaty tent hucking snakes at each other, and keeping their tongue-talking hurtful lies to themselves!

  6. #2 Jacobite–

    It’s real. I pulled it straight from their website. You can’t make up this brand of crazy.

  7. Old Trooper says:

    Well, Squid, you said it better than I could in #6

    Good post.

  8. Jacobite says:

    I’m just amazed at the obvious pop-culture reference to a metal band (Godsmack) and a ska/fusion band (Smash Mouth) that they used in that line, it couldn’t have been an accidental coincidence. I know a lot of modern churches have and do integrate pop culture in an attempt to keep their younger parishioners, but the extreme fundamentalists generally don’t.

    These guys really are bottom feeders. Crazy yes, but crazy like a fox. They’ve turned the American legal system into a gravy train for themselves.

  9. Miss Ladybug says:

    I know it’s not their normal thing, but it would be nice to see the PGR come stand vigil for this woman, to protect her children from this vileness…

  10. Doc Bailey says:

    so is it too much to ask the ACLU NOT to support these wackos?

  11. Wondering says:

    I can’t get to any of Westboro’s websites right now… Anybody know if they use any particular version of the Bible?

  12. Evette R. Tippett says:

    People need to stop thinking and beleiving that they know what God thinks and feel about any of us. I am hoping that Westbro Church have a change of mind and heart and not protest or attend Mrs. Edwards furnal.

  13. Evette R. Tippett says:

    And when did God tell Westbro Church members that he hates Elizabetha Edwards, what day and time did GOD speak to Westbro church or any of it’s members and specifically said that he Hates Elizabeth Edwards. The Westbro church should not try and pretend that they represent God or what GOD hate don’t not abuse the first amendment right with this kind of misunderstanding and the Westbro Church needs to stop pretending that the members of Westbro Church know what GOD HATE or LOVE. “I don’t pretend to know or beleive what GOD or the Devil love or hate. Westbro just needs to say what the Westbro Church Hate not GOD>

  14. Evette R. Tippett says:

    If Elizabetha Edwards is in hell why don’t the Westbro Church and its members go and get her out? That’s what Jesus or Hercules would do, Jesus nor Hercules would protest someone furneral. Another thing how could Elizabetha Edwards prevented death from occuring, can the members of Westbro church prevent thier owns death when death comes to them? Since Westbro church and its members know so much about Hell can they tell me Evette R. Tippett of it’s specific location?

  15. PintoNag says:

    In case you’re planning to attempt to engage WBC in a biblical debate, let me save you some time. WBC may own a church, but it’s just their address. This isn’t a church in the usual sense; it’s a group of lawyers who have found a way to make money abusing the first amendment and not pay taxes on top of it. This has NOTHING to do with religion. It’s a scheme, and a scam. A particularly vicious and subtle one, at that.
    My advice would be to not waste your time attempting to “convert” them.

  16. Evette R. Tippett says:

    Oh that’s what Jesus would do according to the King James Doctrin and what Hercules would do according to Mythology not the Westbro Church, because I am not pretending that I know what Jesus Hercules or God or the Devil will do.

  17. Jacobite says:

    Seeing as how a relationship with god is fundamentally a subjective experience, one can no more tell the WBC that they have or haven’t actually received information straight from god, than I can tell anyone there is no god. There’s simply no way to prove it either way.

    These guys are great for the atheist grist mill. Funny though, it requires as much faith to be an atheist as does to be a believer.

    Long live the Flying Spaghetti Monster! 🙂

  18. #8 Jacobite–I noticed the band names too. I doubt it was intentional as I don’t think these luddites are capable of subtle wit, but possibly so. I made a trip through the Cuckoo’s Nest and learned that they make musical ‘parodies’ for blasphemers using popular songs. Also, “GodSmack” is their cheer/attaboy response to an event that they perceive as blasphemy. From their blog God’s Wrath Revealed: “Bitter-Biker at IED dead soldier funeral, Fresno, CA: ‘He gave nothing less than what Jesus gave.’ Yikes! Each dead military brute died for HIS sins ONLY. He offers no righteous blood to give salvation to even ONE person (himself). HE IS NOT RIGHTEOUS! Christ is righteous. SHUT UP, FOOLS!! GodSmack!” Literally, a smack upside the head from God. (me:can’t…stop…eyerolling…!)

    #9 Ladybug–PGR have indeed helped shelter families in the past from these jerks by revving their engines to drown out the hate.

    #11 Wondering–No idea, but probably just the regular ol’ with perverted interpretations. From their ‘About Us’ section: They are an “Old School (or, Primitive) Baptist Church. We adhere to the teachings of the Bible, preach against all form of sin (e.g., fornication, adultery [including divorce and remarriage], sodomy), and insist that the sovereignty of God and the doctrines of grace be taught and expounded publicly to all men. These doctrines of grace were well summed up by John Calvin in his 5 points of Calvinism…”

    I have a headache.

  19. PintoNag says:

    I prefer those Skittle Unicorns, myself! 🙂

  20. Evette R. Tippett says:

    Oh that’s what Jesus would do according to the King James Doctrin and what Hercules would do according to Mythology not the Westbro Church, because I am not pretending that I know what Jesus Hercules or God or the Devil will do. No where in the King James Bible does it specifically says that Elizabeth Edwards is going to hell for dying. Death is apart of life and for anyone or any organzation to proclaim and even consider protesting Elizabeth Edwards furneral is a misunderstanding of what is really going on in this world. What book and what chapter in the King James Bible is Elizabeth Edwards name in?

  21. Evette R. Tippett says:

    I am not attempting to convert the Westbro Church I am just asking them not to attend Mrs. Edwards furneral in the form of a protest.

  22. Evette R. Tippett says:

    What ever version of the Bible or religious doctrine the Westbro church uses it’s doesn’t specifically say Elizabeth Edwards is going to hell or heaven. This seems to be the Westbro Church doctrine not God or the devil. And once again they should not attend Mrs. Edwards furneral.

  23. Doc Bailey says:

    JC said “turn the other cheek” But sometimes I wonder what he would say. I think John 2:16 comes CLOSE, but that was turning the temple into a market place.

    I think a Beatitudes apply though

    Matthew 5:3-10

    3 “Blessed are the poor in spirit,
    for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
    4 Blessed are those who mourn, (Military funerals anyone?)
    for they will be comforted.
    5 Blessed are the meek,
    for they will inherit the earth.
    6 Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness,
    for they will be filled.
    7 Blessed are the merciful, (DEFINITELY NOT Westboro)
    for they will be shown mercy.
    8 Blessed are the pure in heart,
    for they will see God.
    9 Blessed are the peacemakers,
    for they will be called children of God.
    10 Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness,
    for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

    I’m just going to trow out there that that right there is enough to refute Westboro.

  24. Thanks Doc, just when I was about to go POSTAL. I read your post. Blessed are the Peacemakers. I just wish some asshats would quit while their ahead, or at least still above ground.
