American 'fag-hating' costs continue to mount

by Jeremy Hooper

   Though they'll likely deny responsibility, yet another city is claiming that the folks of Westboro Baptist/God Hates Fags cost them a pretty penny when they came to town to inform the residents that they're all gonna burn in a fiery hell. This latest costly report comes from Plattsburgh, NY, where Mayor Dan Stewart says the city had to spend an extra $7,000 to ensure safety during the anti-gay crew's recent visit.

So let's see: $7,000 + the $2,200 they reportedly cost Dracut, MA + the whopping $10,000 officials say they cost Tracy, CA = Almost 20k of unnecessary government expense (that we know of) in just the last two months. And they've been up to their nonsense for how many years now?

Though honestly, who the hell can put a price tag on memories so vile?
