Members of the Topeka, Kan., Westboro Baptist Church have picketed several military funerals out of a belief that the war in Iraq is a punishment for the nation's tolerance of homosexuality. The group issued a press release Monday saying members will picket LDS President Hinckley's funeral.
Well, isn't that mighty Christian of them.
What has the world come to? Evil is just evil, intolerance is intolerance, stupidity is stupidity no matter what religious cloak it wraps itself in. I personally don't care if you are Muslim, Catholic, Buddhist, Mormon, Agnostic, etc. What matters is how you treat others, and how you treat yourself. It's that simple. I feel sorry for the people that feel like they have to picket a funeral for a 97 year old man.
This is the group that wants to picket Heath Ledger's funeral too.
Pathetic is the only word I can come up with. Simply pathetic.

This is for the funeral of LDS president Gordon B. Hinckley. This Mormon fool preaches lies, and he is in Hell, lifting his eyes in torments. He taught that God was a liar about His covenant between one man, one woman, one lifetime: Mark 10:6 But from the beginning of the creation God made them male and female. 7 For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and cleave to his wife; 8 And they twain shall be one flesh: so then they are no more twain, but one flesh. 9 What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder. Jesus Christ said, that "if you love me, keep my commandments." (John 14:15). The Church of the Lord Jesus Christ is not about the business of "proselytizing" or causing people to "come to Christ." Man doesn't have the prerogative- That is GOD'S (John 6:44). Matthew 23:15 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees [Mormons], hypocrites! for ye compass sea and land to make one proselyte, and when he is made, ye make him twofold more the child of hell than yourselves. See www.signmovies.net, particularly "Fag Church," "Your Pastor is a Whore," "Billy is a Lying Whore," and "Pope in Hell." This false prophet is no different from the Billy Graham or the Pope. They are all different heads on the same monster: False Religous Systems (aka the "Great Whore of Babylon", see Revelation 17). God hates the Whorehouse called the "Church of Latter-Day Saints!" America is Doomed! Amen.
Neil Peart sums these people up much more eloquently than I ever could.
"Witch Hunt" - Rush
The night is black, without a moon.
The air is thick and still.
The vigilantes gather on
The lonely torchlit hill.
Features distorted in the flickering light,
Faces are twisted and grotesque.
Silent and stern in the sweltering night,
The mob moves like demons possesed.
Quiet in conscience, calm in their right,
Confident their ways are best.
The righteous rise
With burning eyes
Of hatred and ill-will.
Madmen fed on fear and lies
To beat and burn and kill.
They say there are strangers who threaten us,
Our immigrants and infidels.
They say there is strangeness to danger us
In our theatres and bookstore shelves,
That those who know whats best for us
Must rise and save us from ourselves.
Quick to judge,
Quick to anger,
Slow to understand
Ignorance and prejudice
And fear walk hand in hand.
