The Westboro Baptist Church pretends that it supports morality, but it's hard to take anything away from what the group does other than to draw the conclusion that they are in it for publicity and controversy. If you need an example of this, then I refer you a recent tweet by top church member Margie J Phelps. This morning she tweeted via her iPhone that the church planned to protest Apple founder Steve Jobs' funeral:
"Westboro will picket his funeral. He had a huge platform; gave God no glory & taught sin. MT @AP: Apple co-founder Steve Jobs has died at 56."
Westboro is best known for its "God Hates Fags" campaign of terror, for picketing returning soldiers' funerals, and for showing up at the occasional celebrity funeral. They enjoy brandishing ridiculous signs saying "God hates" this, that and the other thing.. To say the group is off the beaten path in what it believes is like saying that Hitler was unkind to the Jews. To quote my father, "these cats are crazier than shithouse rats."
Really, the only reason they would protest Jobs' funerals is for attention because they are attention whores.
Thanks to Andrew Eisen and Uncharted NES for the tip.
