Westboro prompts House to install picket fence

by Jeremy Hooper

   By a vote of 408-3, the U.S. House of Representatives has voted to restrict demonstrations at soldier's funerals, a move pointedly aimed at thwarting the favorite past time of the "fag-hating" folks of Westboro Baptist Church. Unless, of course, there's another group going around to military memorial services and telling folks they're going to Hell for being gay, supporting gays, knowing a gay, once talking to a gay, naming your child "Gay," or watching an episode of "Will & Grace" for more than ten seconds -- if there is, then we're sorry for the oversight.

This funeral-based "Sin, it" removal still needs Senate approval; though we have a feeling that by year's end, there's a good chance that "God Hates Being Legally Forced To Stand At Least 500 Feet Away From Burials" will be joining Westboro's roster of infamous signs.
