Westboro Thanks God for Breast Cancer

Posted by JM Ashby

The infamous Westboro Baptist Church who's members set up shop at funerals for dead U.S service members to display signs that read "god hates fags" and "thank god for dead soldiers" is now planning to protest Elizabeth Edward's funeral.

In a promotional flier for the upcoming protest, the church references John and Elizabeth Edwards's son Wade, who died in a car crash in 1996:

"When they were visited from the Most High God with the death of their 16-year-old son, they did not humble themselves before His mighty hand. They reared up in rage, decided they would show God who is boss, and meddled in matters of the womb, resulting in 2 more children -- now motherless."

The church goes on to claim that she is now a "resident of hell, where her rebellion and rage will take full flower."

So the premise, if I understand correctly, is that god chose to kill their son and he didn't appreciate them having more children so he gave her breast cancer to compensate?

Westboro Baptist Church ladies and gentlemen, single handedly making the case for Atheism.
