Excommunication, Westboro Style

by Jeremy Hooper

WestbootThink membership into the Westboro Baptist Church lasts a "fag-hating" lifetime? Well, think again, kiddies. It seems that just like with organizations that exist on this plane of reality and decency, if Westboro finds that you're not pulling your weight or complying with their ways of operation, then they'll boot you faster than you can say "Batsh*t Insanity."

We tell you this because Justin Kendall of The Pitch has written a story about Karl Hockebarger, who, along with his parents and one son, has been booted from the "God Hates Fags"-preaching ministry. It's well-written and insightful, so if you're just dying to know more about the inner-workings of America's favorite lil' band of funeral-picketing gypsies, then click the link below. Though we must warn you to please make sure your hair is set firmly in place before clicking the link, as the disbelieving head-shaking that the lunacy of the whole situation is likely to induce could be ferocious enough to disrupt even the most Aqua-Netted of styles. Proceed with caution.

Dead to Fred [The Pitch]
