The wages of stupid
So what do you do when a deranged bigot with a church claims that your child died in Iraq because God is pissed that America is being taken over by the gays? Why, fund raise of course. In case you're unfamiliar with Fred Phelps and his Westboro Baptist Church (URL: Godhatesfags.com), he's probably best known for crashing the funerals of gay AIDS victims and harassing the loved ones.
"...One woman says a group in Michigan has already dealt with the protesting pastor."
"'He protested their bar, and they decided instead of counter-acting and counter-protesting him with signs, they decided to do a fundraiser,' said Melissa Yoannon, the local fundraiser coordinator."
"All these ladies are asking for is a nickel, dime or quarter pledge per minute that Phelps protests Taylor's funeral."
"Yoannon asked, 'I thought if we could do this and get some money for Sgt. Taylor's wife, to make up for this man putting such a stain on the last peaceful moment she has with him, why not?'"And hey, if you get the hankerin' to donate, you can find the information here. (Sisyphus Shrugged)
