Westboro Baptist Announces Protest of Steve Jobs’s Funeral

And they used an iPhone to do it.

Margie Phelps could really teach a class in shameless self promotion.

I truly wish a group of some cyber geeks would make the Westboro Baptist Church website crash for eternity. Who in the heck funds this bag of nutcases? How do they have the funds to go around protesting at people’s funerals.

Charles, I know part of their money comes from encouraging people to attack them and then suing them when they do.

I think a group of those who the church has picketed at funerals needs to band together and when a church member dies go to the church and picket them and harass them like they to people who they bother for no reason

Priya Lynn is right: that’s exactly how they make their living.

While much of what I read and see about Westboro makes me fume, this one actually makes me laugh.

Oh, Margie. Such a quirky little mess you’ve become, and I chuckle when I realize that you truly can’t see the ridiculousness that you are.

Condemning Steve Jobs to hell from your very own little iphone. LOVE. IT. In fact, I even {puffy} heart it.

I’m pretty sure that Mr.Jobs would not be horrified at the idea of Westboro protesting at his funeral.

One of his precious iphones in your greasy, prejudicial, sweaty little palms might.

These people are truly heartless.

“part of their money comes from encouraging people to attack them and then suing them when they do.”

Sounds like the Scientologists. :P

The irony is uncanny. Steve Jobs may have been a sinner, but the disgustingly self-righteous can’t help but use his instruments of evil inspired by satan himself. Don’t they know God hates the so called insestuous Westboro Church? Take pity on these sick people.

What does Matt Groening think about one of his cartoon renderings being part of this pic?

Imagine how many Christians there would be in this world if all that Jesus did was protest funerals?

Steve Jobs followed Buddhism. Of course he didn’t “give glory” to a creator that he didn’t believe in, any more than anyone expects the Westboro people to “give glory” to things they don’t believe in. But he didn’t go and picket churches just because he didn’t share their members’ beliefs.

The family went ahead and had the funeral today without announcing it. Poor old phelps didn’t get his media whore moment.
