Top five times Fred Phelps and Westboro Baptist Church got owned

It's no surprise that Westboro Baptist Church is up to its usual well-publicized and well-hated shenanigans, but members of the "God Hates F*gs!" gang have gone and done it now -- they pissed off a group of New York City Satanists (a group you really don't wanna piss off) by threatening to picket the funerals of Boston Marathon bombing victims. So last weekend the enraged Satanists decided to do Fred Phelps's dead mother a solid, and ceremoniously turned her into a homosexual. That put the score at Satanists 1, WBC 0. But this is far from the first time that the church has been completely owned, and hopefully it won't be the last.

Here's out list of the top five times that members of Westboro Baptist Church got theirs -- no need to turn the other cheek.
