Jesus Christ! I totally missed this a few weeks ago, so maybe you did too. From the Raw Story:
The Westboro Baptist Church leaders known for picketing the funeral of Matthew Shepard, the young college student brutally murdered in Wyoming in 1998, have released the following statement regarding the tsunamis which hit Southeast Asia earlier in the week.
The statement, which was posted on their website Wednesday alongside dozens of other archived "press releases," thanks God for the tsunami and for the death of any gay Swedish vacationers who perished at the time.
Apparently these lovely people have had it in for Sweden ever since the pastor Åke Green was sentenced to prison for hate speech against gays. Which means they're very happy now. Take it, compassionate Christians:
We sincerely hope and pray that all 20,000 Swedes are dead, their bodies bloated on the ground or in mass graves or floating at sea feeding sharks and fishes or in the bellies of thousands of crocodiles washed ashore by tsunamis.
Given the nature of this blog, I feel I have to point out that this is no joke - it seems that God really does hate Sweden. Why else would he have let so many Swedes vacation in the area? Then again, I guess we should be thankful he doesn't hate us as much as he must hate Indonesia and Sri Lanka.
