Have You No Shame?

I know that I just posted a few hours ago, but the following got my temper up.

Seems like the good Christian folks at the Westboro Baptist Church have agreed to cancel their protest at the funerals of the 5 Amish girls killed by a schoolhouse shooting shitweasel in Pennsylvania in exchange for an hour on Mike Gallagher's radio talk show. Isn't that awfully big of them.

Of course to concede that you have to ignore that only a creature lacking basic human decency would even consider protesting at a funeral of five innocents in the first place, but when you get into the article and read what their "spokesperson" has to say you will be hair-flaming furious. This "spokesperson" would be Shirley Roper-Phelps, she of Hannity and Colmes fame, who was so bereft of worth that even lefty Alan Colmes had to take her to task.

If you aren't familiar with the Westboro Baptist "Church", this is the group of inbreds in Topeka KS that started out 16 years ago protesting at the funerals of AIDS victims and moved on to protesting at the funerals of American servicemen. Most recently the protest was at the Sago miner's funerals. The message is the same, God hates us all because we allow homosexuals in our midst.

It is important to note that neither the American Baptist Churches nor the Southern Baptist Council claims any association with WBC, even though they call themselves Baptist.

I wonder if the Patriot Guard Riders would do an Amish funeral. On horses, perhaps.

In other news, Bill Frist is now a Democrat.
