"God Hates Fags"

That's the name of the "Westboro Baptist Church" home page. It's a comically juvenile sentiment, to be sure, but dangerous just the same. Chances are, this is not an event that Jesus would attend without some loving criticism of his own: "WBC to picket the grinning, money-grubbing pettifogger and pandering demagogue loser -- John Edwards -- 8 p.m. Fri., Mar. 4 at Ramada Inn Downtown Topeka." These folks got airtime on MSNBC's Scarborough County. (via Media Matters)
