Meet Your Match.
All joking aside, the Westboro Baptist Church is a real piece of shit.
You know the place — these are the folks who think they are doing the Lord's work by picketing funerals and telling the world's gays, artists and anyone who likes to live their life that they are going straight to hell.
New and not-at-all-surprising controversy surfaced recently regarding the well-hated church. When answering questions in a Reddit AMA yesterday, former “church” member Zach Phelps-Roper, grandson to the late Fred Phelps, told the internet that the church prays for certain people to die — in the name of God, of course.
Anyway, the moral of the story is, you've got much better things to do tonight than to stay at home and pray for other people's demise. — Chase Whale
