Putrid America Is Doomed!
[Wrath o' God] Just when you thought Westboro Baptist Church of Kansas' crazy train couldn't run any further off the rails, Fred Phelps & Co. are bringing their Tragical Misery Tour to Utah to protest … a memorial service for the six Huntington miners scheduled for Sunday, Sept. 9 at Canyon View Junior High. Yes, the righteous folk behind GodHatesFags.com sent City Weekly (a heathen organization on The List, we would hope) the following press release: "WBC to picket memorial service for six miners entombed forever in a Utah mountain by a sovereign God … In religious protest and warning: 'Be not deceived; God is not mocked,' Gal. 6:7. God hates fags and fag enablers! Ergo: God hates Utah and America, and is punishing sodomite, idolatrous, Mormon Utah and sodomite America with one disaster after another—from 9/11, Iraq, Katrina, fires, tornados, earthquakes, etc.—to worse and more of it coming. Putrid America is doomed." Well, obviously—but maybe God's gunning for Fred Phelps and keeps missing. (Bill Frost)
