REV. FRED PHELPS
MONTCOAL W.V. — Protesters from Westboro Baptist Church in Topeka, Kan., headed to the Upper Big Branch mine Thursday morning to convey the message that the explosion there that left 25 miners dead was a result of e-mail messages allegedly sent from West Virginia threatening the Church and its publisher, according to a statement from the Church. The church, which is led by Fred Phelps, has attracted attention in recent years by showing up at funerals for soldiers who have died in Iraq and Afghanistan. At those funerals they carry signs that say that God hates homosexualityWe are definitely in a state of total insanity folks. Isn't there some law against ignorant doofus behavior? I know a lot of fine people from West Virginia. They are courteous and gentle people who are always kind and helpful to others. But if these bozos show up and do anything at all to insult those who mourn their lost family members, I have a feeling that an ass whupping will ensue. Wish I could be there to help!
