I knew it wouldn't be long before silly season started after the death of Steve Jobs. I just didn't know that it would be SO soon and SO completely freaking asinine. But then again, whenever there is the possibility of the Westboro Baptist Church having anything to do with anything, I guess I can't expect a guarantee.
Shortly after the death of Steve Jobs was made known to the world, we were all privy to a tweet from the completely idiotic Margie J Phelps of the Westboro Baptist Church Phelps'. These are the people (their brains likely riddled with syphilis and no longer capable of rational thought) who tend to picket the funerals of soldiers killed in the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. They also like to picket funerals of people who were gay or supported gay rights. In general, they're just a bunch of a-holes. That is most easily evidence by Margie Phelps' tweet which is seen below. Behold!
That's right. They're going to picket his funeral. Please do not let the irony of the fact that she sent this from her iPhone (which, in case you were unaware, Steve Jobs freaking invented!) escape you. And when this was pointed out to her (through a bazillion tweets in the Twitterverse), she gave just the sort of response that I would have expected would have come from someone like her. Behold!
Right. That's why you used your iPhone. Because God made it to tell us that. And look, without even challenging her beliefs, I'm just going to come right out and say that I'm pretty sure that God did not create the iPhone. The small children in China that assemble iPhones have had more of a hand in the creation process than God did. And while I'm on the subject, how is it that none of these Westboro people have been shot yet? I'm merely wondering out loud. I'm not suggesting violence by any means. (I AM a fan of about two percent vigilante justice, however. And I think that these lunatics would qualify for my system.) I'm just sayin'.Sphere: Related Content
