Why am I even surprised?

I'm sure you've all heard of the Westboro Baptist Church and how they picket funerals, fundie wackos that they are.

So of course they'd find Heath Ledger's funeral a wonderful opportunity to spread news of God's hate and vengeance. I don't know why I was surprised to hear about this, I already know these people have no sense of shame or normal restraint on their behavior.

Herald Sun article


A US church says actor Heath Ledger is in hell because he played a gay cowboy in one of his films, and has vowed to picket his funeral.

The Westboro Baptist Church (WBC), a Kansas-based congregation known for its demonstrations outside funerals for US soldiers killed in Iraq, said the Perth-born Australian actor who died yesterday was “now in hell”.

“WBC will picket this pervert’s funeral in religious protest,” the group said in a statement on its website.

“God hates the sordid, tacky bucket of slime seasoned with vomit known as Brokeback Mountain – and He hates all persons having anything to whatsoever to do with it.

“Heath Ledger is now in hell, and has begun serving his eternal sentence there.”

I hope God is saving a spot in hell for people who picket funerals and cause more grief to those who are already suffering the loss of a loved one.
