Westboro Church at it again ...

Last year, following Heath Ledger's death, I interviewed a woman (I use the term loosely) named Shirley Phelps Roper of the Westboro Baptist Church.

Phelps Roper was celebrating Ledger's death, as she felt his life was an affront to God ... because he was in "Brokeback Mountain."

Here's a link to the podcast ...

Anyway, these "Christians" are at it again, this time picketing the funeral of Tim McLean, the man who was beheaded on a Canadian Greyhound bus.
The group intends to picket the funeral of 22-year-old Tim McLean to tell Canadians his slaying on July 30 was God's response to Canadian policies enabling abortion, homosexuality and divorce and remarriage.
I firmly believe that there is a special place in Hell for the pious.

As a strange side-note: I watched Brokeback Mountain today. It was horrible. And I'm not saying that from some homophobic position ... it was just a bad movie. Although, I must confess, guys kissing gives me the heebie jeebies.
