When last we heard from the virulent homophobes at Westboro Baptist Church, they were no-shows at a same-sex-marriage debate at CU that they'd earlier promised to picket.

But that doesn't mean they've forgotten about Boulder. Indeed, the Kansas-based hate spewers are now declaring their intention to protest at the funerals of the three people who died in a recent plane crash.

Why? Apparently because people who live in Boulder are godless heathens who the Lord has decided to strike down with furious vengeance. Here's the text from their latest screed:


"But fornication, & uncleanness, or covetousness, let it not be once named among you... Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience." Eph. 5:3, 6

Every human born into this world has a duty to obey the God of all creation. But this generation forgot God, teaching rebellion against Him, such that you're a freak if you strive to be obedient. You've instutitionalized pervsion, so God will keep cutting you off -- & we'll be there to make sure you know that you brought it on yourselves with your filthy manner of life?

Another false alarm? Or will these idiots actually show up to foul the funerals of accident victims? We can't be certain at this point, Lord knows -- but there's no doubt the mere threat is disturbing enough...
