Even by Westboro Baptist Church standards -- and let's face it, these folks do manage to set the bar impressively low -- their latest antics are positively repugnant.
The tiny church that believes God hates everybody but their own little in-bred congregation has officially sunk to all-new depths.
OK, so maybe they changed their puny minds after this column was written. But as of Friday morning, Westboro Baptist Church had planned to picket this weekend's funeral for 7-year-old Charlie Powell and 5-year-old Braden Powell, the brothers who were blown up in a gasoline-fueled murder-suicide perpetrated by their father in the Graham, Wash., area.
And why would a so-called church picket the funeral of two young innocents, cruelly and violently torn from this life by the one person who should have loved them best? Why, to protest same-sex marriages, of course.
Well, of course.
