Putting the "Fun" in Funeral


Fred Phelps and the Westboro Baptist Church's lunatic traveling roadshow is about to take on something a hell of a lot more dangerous than the families of fallen U.S. soldiers.

Hollywood.

My admittedly inconsequential thoughts on the subject also happen to be my first official column for the Huffington Post.

Feel free to take a look.

Nice work, my friend.

But get another picture for Huffpo, that one looks a little too shit-eating-grin, even for you.

Congratulations on your first article for the Huffpost.
I agree with 'Votar' - perhaps tinker with the photo and see if you can't come up with something a little more... you.

As for these freakish loons, I'll never understand why no one's seen fit to just take out their compound or lair or whatever the hell it is they nest in. So irritating.

good work chez, glad to see you are moving in the direction you want to

For some odd, perhaps a little sick since I don't know you, vicarious reason I feel proud of you. Does this mean the cat is out of the bag on where you work?

And there's the rub: the very definition of tolerance is tolerating the asshats who spew hate. Much as I'd like to drop a flaming fudge bag on the steps of their unholy house of hatred . . . I can't make this sentence any better, sorry.

I'm not rubbing it anyone's face at work, nor am I exactly hiding it.

Don't ask, don't tell -- and see where it leads.

Actually....apparantly a few years ago someone DID try to take our Phelps. They tried to blow up his church, or something like that. That is one of the main reasons he protests the funerals of soldiers.

As for your debut Huff Post...congrats again!

honestly?

i cant wait until someone snaps and shoots the son of a bitch.

i will be at his funeral with a huge picket sign that says, "ABOUT FUCKING TIME."

and for that one rare case i would be willing to submit a hypocritically ironic, "God hates intolerant assholes."
