I'm going off the rails on a crazy train
The Westboro Baptist loonies are going to picket Maria Lauterbach's funeral in Vandalia, because, as you may or may not know, God hates fags, and the fag-loving United States, and its fag-loving military. Vandalia is not far from me. Do you know how tempted I am to go? I'm perversely fascinated by those people, especially Shirley Phelps-Roper. I wonder if she'd pose for a picture with me. Did you know she thinks we should either follow the Bible in this country to the letter or not at all? She feels like we should either grant full and equal rights to gays (and gay couples), OR we should follow God's word, which is to say that all the queers should be rounded up, imprisoned and then executed. She won't cotton to any compromise. FYI: she prefers the latter course of action (natch).
