Westboro condemns Larry Craig, Larry/Craig

by Jeremy Hooper

Well, you've heard pundits from the left and the right weigh in on the Larry Craig situation. Now hear from the far fringes of lunacy's most prominent talking heads, Westboro Baptist Church:

Picture 5-78

Oh so frighteningly wacky! But you know, we kind of envy Westboro. Because whereas those of us who swim in the waters of reality have to actually think about situations rationally, form reasoned opinions, and present accurate representations, they only have to accuse any and everything negative as being caused by the "f*gs."

Hurricane? F*g.
Volcano? F*g.
Splinter? F*g.
Overcooked your meatloaf? F*g.

Ya see, they don't have to be bothered with critical analysis or dignify any other worldview. The topic could be premature ejaculation during heterosexual sex, and somehow a gay person would be to blame in some way. And while such arguments may be mean, cruel, indecent, inhumane, immoral, intellectually weak, and batshi*t crazy, just think of how much time they save by embracing Fred Phelps' ideas as fervently as Jonestown's most eager Flavor-Aid drinker! Why it's enough to make any pragmatic, commonsensical thinker just a tad bit jealous.

***NOTE: The full Westboro press release with the piggish pic can be found on their website. However, a link from us is something those kids never receive.

I love the part where they are going to picket Craig's household bathrooms. ..wait, did I read that wrong?

I like "cruisy area". Of course, I think Hennepin Avenue is a much better "cruisy area" then the airport. That works for me because I don't try to hide my sexual orientation.
