Westboro: God's firing Arnold

by Jeremy Hooper

You may have already this morning seen Matt Lauer's live report from the site of the California wildfires. However, you haven't heard the full story until you've heard Westboro Baptist Church's assessment of the situation:

Picture 5-84

What, Westboro -- couldn't find a way to work in "Hasta La Vista, Baby"? Slackers.

But you know, WBC, we see another possible reason for the disaster. Because while Arnold did sign SB777 and other pro-gay measures, he also vetoed the big enchilada: a bill that would have legalized gay marriage in the state. How can you be so sure that God's not just pissed that he is being deprived of the opportunity to attend John & Juan's wedding? How do we know that he wasn't looking forward to drunkedly dancing the horah at their reception, and this natural disaster is an expression of holy dismay? After all, when assessing the root of deity antipathy, you must consider the whole spectrum. Who's to say that if not for Arnold's signature of SB777, the fires would have been even more raging?

Or, there is another possibility: The fires are due to a volatile mix of extreme temperature, winds, and dry brush, and not the anger of an angry supreme being. But you can decide for yourself whether you're going to go with unfortunate circumstance, the wrath of a a God who's throwing a temper tantrum over the lovely wedding gift that he must now wait to give his gay friends, or the fury of a God who hates anyone who can even look at a gay person without spitting in their face.

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

Your thoughts

The "best" part (if there could even conceivably be a best part) of the WBC's tirade is the references to California's governor as Gov. Flabbynegger and the Flabinator. Perhaps Shirl has the ability to be a catty gossip columnist. Any job openings on Good As You?

Hey, we're not catty and gossipy. Snarky and fed up with bullshit, yes.

Kansas hasn't needed any additional plagues. They already have WBC.
