God, this crap annoyed me beyond measure.

Some people simply have no respect for the dead, or the grieving:

A controversial church described as a “hate group” has said it will protest at Heath Ledger’s memorial service because he played a gay character in Brokeback Mountain.

The Kansas-based Westboro Baptist Church – which has previously said they wished a million people had been killed in the London terror attacks in 2005 – issued a statement saying the Australian actor was “now in hell”.

“WBC will picket this pervert’s funeral, in religious protest,” the group said.

“God hates the sordid, tacky bucket of slime seasoned with vomit known as Brokeback Mountain and He hates all persons having anything whatsoever to do with it.

“Heath Ledger is now in Hell, and has begun serving his eternal sentence there.”



  • The Chaser. Heh. I hear they’re taking their show overseas. Much fun to be had, I’m sure.

    I don’t think that would do much good, Scott, as it’d only make them feel like they’re accomplishing their goal to appear like victims and martyrs. But I do feel that perhaps the time has come for society to literally turn our backs when these types grasp for attention. When the KKK sued for and won the right to obtain a parade/march license in my small home town some years ago we (the residents) went out to the street and stood with our backs to the procession. No violence, no riots, no anger; but the klan gleaned no emotional response, and I believe it disappointed them very much as they’ve never again applied for a license. There are times when the greed for attention is as much a part of hate-mongers’ aim as the spread of the hatred itself. While we must be wary and educated of their goals, to give them reason to act the drama queens only fuels their fires. I believe, too, that this Westboro Baptist bunch are abusing the right of free speech by disrespecting funerals and mourners. If a person can be thrown out of a movie theater or library for talking loudly, there’s no excuse these people should have free reign to yell, hoot, holler, cuss and throw verbal assaults in the proximity of a funeral.

    Karen, please forgive me if this was an overly long comment.
