God hates shrimp1

Fred Phelps is scum, and being barking mad is no excuse. The asshole who picketed Matthew Shepard’s funeral now exults in the deaths of US service personnel in Iraq, claiming that it is God’s revenge on the US for an attack on Phelps’ church and for, I dunno, having not yet rounded up and shot all the icky gays:

Thank God for IEDs killing American soldiers in strange lands every day.
WBC rejoices every time the Lord God in His vengeance kills or maims an American soldier with an Improvised Explosive Device (IED). “The righteous shall rejoice when he seeth the vengeance: he shall wash his feet in the blood of the wicked” (Ps. 58:10).
This nation bombed and raided the Westboro Baptist Church, and now the Holy God that Inhabits Eternity is repaying those heinous acts with His retaliatory wrath; “Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord” (Rom. 12:19).
To most effectively cause America to know her abominations 2 (Ez. 16:2), WBC will picket the funerals of these Godless, fag army American soldiers when their pieces return home. WBC will also picket their landing spot, in Dover, Delaware early and often.

These miserable excuses for human beings picketed the funerals of Sgts Bryan Opskar and Christopher Taylor, and plan to picket (inter, no doubt, alia) the funeral of Sgt Jason T Palmerton.
There is an up side, though, the brainchild of one Keith Orr, proprietor of the Aut Bar in Ann Arbor, MI. Phelps picketed the bar in February 2001 as part of a protest against the University of Michigan

  1. Leunig, the wonderfully expressive — whom I would img link in but the comments system doesn’t allow that. So you’ll just have to click here.

  2. And I just want to say, having read more of the links, that Phelps is sad and despicable, and both the pledge and angel ideas are marvellous. I’m particularly reminded of the silent angels in Faraway, So Close (or was it in Wings of Desire?) that just sat with people silently on trains/etc.

    Yeah, it’s an interim fix for spam. Will upgrade to MT3 sometime and have moderated comments, all mod cons allowed.
    Love the cartoon, and I don’t usually like Leunig much.
    Also love the image from Wings of Desire (I think); that hadn’t occurred to me. My idea was actually Roman legion-style shields with God Hates Shrimp on them, so you could lock them at the front of a defensive line. They’d only be cardboard, but it would be a pretty impressive front.
    Finally, guess who owns everyminutecounts.net and .info? (.org, .com were taken)

    Would be cool to set this up as a general site for people to get sponsorship against human rights picketers, with the Fred Rogers example as a starter.
