When Madness Masquerades As Religion

Not Islamists this time, but creatures who claim to be Christians.

From Agence France Presse:
Hecklers harass families of US soldiers killed in Iraq

Five women sang and danced as they held up signs saying "thank God for dead soldiers" at the funeral of an army sergeant who was killed by an Iraqi bomb.

For them, it was the perfect way to spread God's word: America was being punished for tolerating homosexuality.
This is nothing but a game to gain publicity for the so-called "Westboro Baptist Church", which is really a cult run by Fred Phelps and his family. Maybe they'll eventually take the route of the Jim Jones cult. One can only hope.

The good news...while the Westboro Baptist cult has about 100 members, the bikers of The Patriot Guard Riders are now 16,000 strong.
