Seriously?

Fred Phelps and his Westboro Baptist Church plan to picket Heath Ledger's funeral. (Pick an article...by the time you click the link, I'm sure more will have been added.)

Disgusting. Sick. These people have no shame, and they give humanity a bad name.

Way to follow the teachings of Christ, there, Westboro Baptist Church. It makes me wish I believed in Hell, so that I could take comfort in the fact that you would be burning there for eternity after death.

I cannot believe that they would disrespsect a funeral like that. They don't understand Ledger was playing a charachter? Even if it was his true story why would they ever be that curel?

I think what got me was the last line of the article. Protesting a funerals of US soliders killed in Iraq? How can people do those things?

The father of one of the soldiers sued them and won $9 million. These people really are the scum of the earth.

I agree they are scum, and I wish they would go away. At the same time, I'm almost glad they DO exist, because it's comforting and encouraging to read how many different kinds of people ALSO think they're full of crap. As with people like Ann Coulter (CRAZYSHEDEMONFROMHELL!), sometimes a negative polarizing figure is necessary to unite others who might not have anything else in common.
