The Westboro Baptist Church, one of the most virulent, twisted and shameless hate groups around, has taken a break from their usual malevolent “protests” to take on Twitter. They apparently don’t even hate Twitter. They just think that “Twitter should be used to tell the punks of doomed America that God hates you!” Right …
These haters would be comical if it weren’t for the grief they cause others. It’s groups like these that test the bounds of the First Amendment. I’d love to see these people in jail or exiled to an island reserved for hopeless haters, but I understand the precedent that would set.
Anyway, these psychos picked on the wrong group this time. San Francisco loves a protest and they soon came out in waves to greet the haters San Fran style. You piss off some of the smartest and most creative people on earth at your peril.
Also, I learned a new word! Santorum, a very appropriate coinage by Dan Savage based on the actions of Senator Rick Santorum. Check it out below.
