God Hates Proposed Legislation

by Jeremy Hooper

  Indiana state senator Brent Steele has proposed a new bill that would ban the unhinged, 'God Hates Fags'-declaring, Phelps clan of Westboro Baptist from protesting at soldier's funerals. Under Steele's proposition, disorderly conduct committed during military funerals would be made a felony punishable by a three-year prison sentence and $10,000 fine.

The bill proposal is sure to raise plenty of free speech, decency, and "where the hell have elected officials been during these kooks' decades of protests against all things queer (including funerals of homosexuals)" issues.
