According to The Raw Story Westboro Baptists have announced plans to picket the funeral of Jackass star Ryan Dunn. News like this always affirms my faith, which is my lack of it. That’s right! I’m a proud Atheist; a non-believer, and this sort of thing is one of the many, many reasons why.
The Westboro Baptist Church is well known and widely despised for picketing the funerals of military families with offensive signs such as “Thank God for Dead Soldiers,” “God Hates America,” and “God Hates Fags.”
You see these Jesus Jumping lunatics believe that God is punishing the United States because of its apparent acceptance of homosexuality. I’ll wager there are a lot of gays who would disagree with that premise.
As to the late Ryan Dunn, he and his passenger died in a car crash Monday in Pennsylvania. His 2007 Porsche 911 GT3 was going about 130 mph when it struck a guardrail, flew into a wooded valley and burst into flames, West Goshen Police Chief Michael Carroll told Radar Online.
Dunn tweeted a picture of himself drinking at a bar just hours before the accident, but toxicology reports will not come back until at least four weeks.
On their website, the Westboro Baptists announced they would picket any public memorial for the “proud sinner” Dunn, calling him a “drab pervert who hawked porn-level filth to get rich from a perverse generation.”
They also declared, almost as an afterthought, that Pennsylvania was “one of the most evil states to ever exist.” So what’s up with that? Does Pennsylvania have more gays than say, California? Why such an honor from a group of Bible-thumping crazies? What has the Great State of Pennsylvania done to deserve such a less than fond appellation from America’s leading group of monsters?
So tell us what you think of the Westboro Baptists.
