Hateful bastards

It's sad to see actor Heath Ledger die so tragically, but frankly I don't really care about his celebrity - but I can appreciate the work he has done. Let his family and friends celebrate his life and mourn his passing with respect and dignity.

However, it seems that respect and dignity aren't in one Christian group's vocabulary - the Kansas-based Westboro Baptist Church. The group, infamous for picketing the funerals of US soldiers killed in Iraq, making their point with placards saying things like 'Gods Hates Fags', has decided to protest at US memorial services for Heath Ledger. They have singled him out because of his role as a gay character in the movie Brokeback Mountain, and have proclaimed that Ledger has gone to hell.

These dopey inbred cousin-fuckers don't know when to shut the fuck up. Sooner or later a US citizen's right to free speech they abuse with their hateful tripe will tragically come up against a US citizen's right to carry a gun.
