Westboro's da bomb (target)
So yesterday, as details were first trickling in, we told you about the Liberty University student who had planned to use bombs at Jerry Falwell's funeral, with us speculating that the explosives were meant to target Westboro Baptist's protest of the proceedings. Well it has now been confirmed that the bomber, Mark David Uhl, was, in fact, intending to go after the Phelps clan's incendiary rhetoric with his incendiary devices:

So we have a "religious" man attempting to kill a "religious" group in the name of "religion" at a "religious" man's funeral. Please forgive our quotation marks. It's just that with every passing day, the faith and piousness becomes more and more alleged.
Hey, "religious opposition: Whatdya say we drop the "gays are militant" claim until we hear of EVEN ONE person who kills or maims in the name of pro-gay proselytization?!
It's starting to sound like all of the hard line religious factions in the Middle East. One man is going to try and kill the hyper-religious hate group that is protesting his own hyper-religious hate group. Very interesting.
It amazes me that no one in this country has the cojones to make this parallel.

Just a thought and No I don't expect it to go anywhere. I think the case could be made for charging Fred Phelps and all of his group with treason. One part of treason is giving aid and comfort to the enemy. I think the case could be made that their protesting at funerals and their other anti american activaties have to give the "enemy" comfort. That a "church" leader would do this in the middle of America. Just a thought.

Dammit, and I here I thought I was the only one who had ill-will towards the Westboro Bigot Church! C'mon seriously... protesting Jerry Falwell, why? Because he didn't hate Gay People enough?
This Mark what's his face had a nice idea, but he was doing it for all the WRONG reasons. Christians fighting other Christians is very lulzworthy, but wouldn't have been better to blow them up for the justice of all minorities, instead of as some lame retaliation against them for insulting America or some dead evangelist bigot who got a college named after him?
And no, I'm not serious about killing anybody. I'd rather just annoy them with Rick Roll music on a CD player and some funny "God Hates Shrimp" signs than do any of that retarded martyr shit, that's what they WANT. They wanna get blown up so they can be martyrs, and I'll be damned if I give in to their frigging plans.
