Where’s Dante when you need him?

We need to bring him back to create a special ring in Hell for the Westboro Baptists.  They plan to picket Elizabeth Edwards funeral today. Ostensibly for blasphemy, assaulting God, and I quote:

Elizabeth Edwards & her faithless husband, John, lightly esteemed what they had. They coveted things that were not theirs – and presumptuously thought they could control God.

So you’re going to punish a woman because her husband cheated on her?  Or is it really just that she was a gay rights advocate.  I don’t think this has anything to with religion.  It’s for publicity.  Pure and simple.

  1. There was an article in today’s (Sunday) paper that explained the Elizabeth Edwards statements about her loss of faith, due to her son’s death, that led to Westboro whackjobs showing up yesterday. Basically they are a bunch of cruel, arrogant gloaters, practically spitting on her fresh grave.

    I’m wondering how many members of Westboro have had any kind of health problems, even cancer, and to what sins they attribute them? I bet when it’s them, they blame Satan. Bastards.

  2. ERITAS – I just find them sick, and I don’t believe that free speech should protect them. What they’re doing is terrorizing people. I thought that was illegal in America these days.
