Give me that old time religion

Anything is better than what these lunatics are spewing from Westboro Baptist Church in Topeka, Kansas (what IS it with Kansas anyway?)whom I mentioned earlier. They are protesting at funerals for soldiers killed in Iraq, saying that God is punishing them for defending homosexuals in the U.S.

Darren D. Howe in Beatrice, Neb., who was killed in Iraq by a roadside bomb or IED (Improvised Explosive Device). Here is what our so-called “Christian” friends had to say about it:
