Like vultures swooping in to feast on the entrails of roadkill, Westboro Baptist Church has announced that they will be picketing outside of the funeral of Elizabeth Edwards. The estranged wife of vice presidential candidate (and presidential hopeful) John Edwards passed away Tuesday. From the hate group's website:
This witch spent her life in defiance and disobedience to God, and blasphemed Him with her dying breath. She received multiple warnings and opportunties [sic] to repent... She called her dead 16-year-old brat "righteous" and said the Old Testament promises for God's people are lies. Her blasphemous words: "I had to think about a God who would not same my son...not only did he not protect him, the hand of God blew him from the road." If she had been a righteous woman, she would have said like Job, "the Lord giveth and the Lord taketh away; blessed be the name of the Lord"... Her pride and arrogance is breath-taking! The last thing she would think to do is humble herself before the mighty hand of God. So, when Elizabeth woke in Hell on December 7th -- where she will reside for eternity -- her son, Wade, met her and began an eternity of cursing her for lying to him. Our message is for the living: do not live like Elizabeth Edwards or you will die like her and spend eternity in Hell where the worm never dies and the fire is never quenched.
I think I've got a pretty good idea who's going to be spending eternity rotting in hell and it's not going to be those that Westboro pickets. These disgusting vermin are the ones who will spend eternity cursing their parents for lying to them. At what point do you stop being outraged at their venom and feeling sorry for them for being brainwashed so thoroughly by their cult leader father? As for me, not yet. Close, but not yet.
