Joking aside and disregarding the complete stupidity that is the Westboro Baptist Church’s logic, the situation is tragic. The boys lived with their grandparents after their mother went missing in 2009. Their father was in the midst of seeking child custody. Records show Josh Powell sent goodbye emails minutes before a social worker dropped the boys off for the visit that ended their lives.
Margie Phelps, daughter of the founder of WBC and never one to be sensitive to… well, anything, tweeted that the protest will also be a demonstration for Governor Christine Gregoire who announced her support for marriage equality and is expected to sign the law next week.
“You see friends, our job is to show his nation its sins. #GettingYourAttention” Phelps tweeted this afternoon.
No, Margie. Your job is to stay the hell out of this funeral and let families grieve a tragic loss.
Good riddance. What do you think about this “demonstration?” Vent your outrage in the comments.
