Hate Group Westboro Baptist Church Will Picket Jobs’s Funeral; Sends Announcement Via iPhone
What do American soldiers, a beloved 90s pop-rock band, and Steve Jobs have in common? They’ve all been called heroes (well, the Foo Fighters sang about heroes at least)—and they’ve all been/will be protested by a Topeka, Kansas hate group.
The Westboro Baptist Church is at it again, announcing they will protest any public services for Steve Jobs. The group is famous for protesting soldiers’ funerals, saying God is punishing the U.S. for allowing homosexuals to exist. It consists of only about 70 members who are mostly related to the founder.
The WBC sprang on the near universal praise being heaped on Steve Jobs to tell the world that they believe he is in Hell.
At the bottom, it reads “Twitter for iPhone.”
While many have accused the Phelpses of missing the irony of the situation, they seem unfazed by their use of, and even love of, Apple products.
“Rebels mad cuz I used iPhone to tell you Steve Jobs is in hell.God created iPhone for that purpose,” tweeted Margie later.
