Absolutely Disgusting

Since Bush has been in office, I don't disgust as easily as I used to, but this one takes the fucking cake. From Raw Story.
RAW STORY has discovered that the Westboro Baptist Church leaders known for picketing the funeral of Matthew Shepard, the young college student brutally murdered in Wyoming in 1998, have released the following statement regarding the tsunamis which hit Southeast Asia earlier in the week.

The statement, which was posted on their website Wednesday alongside dozens of other archived "press releases," thanks God for the tsunami and for the death of any gay Swedish vacationers who perished at the time.

I'm not going to try to reproduce the actual article. It's in fonts and styles reminiscent (to me anyway) of old fashioned stuff. You owe it to yourself to go see this unconscionable tripe. Methinks this so-called minister got scared by a penis at some time in his life.

If we don't see any MSM coverage of this I won't be surprised. Even though this church is obviously on the leading edge of the lunatic fringe, our fearless media haven't got the balls to to take on so-called christians for any reason.
