Absolutely disgusting

Just when I thought I couldn't feel any sicker, I came across this article. Please tell me that somehow, in some parallel universe somewhere, this whole Rev Phelps crowd is just a sick, sick joke.

"The scriptures are crystal clear that when God sets out to punish a nation, it is with the sword. An IED is just a broken-up sword," Phelps-Roper said. "Since that is his weapon of choice, our forum of choice has got to be a dead soldier's funeral."

You've got to love this argument. If we take certain passages of the Bible literally without room for interpretation, and then take other passages and interpret them liberally, it's crystal clear what I - I mean - God wants us to do.

I can't think of anything more disrespectful than protesting at someone's funeral. Although I guess we kind of did that at Powderhouse....
