Westboro Plans to Picket Funeral of Steve Jobs
The Advocate’s Winston Gieseke asks, “Is it possible that God hates Steve Jobs, but not the products he created?”
Margie Phelps and the Westboro Baptist Church apparently think so.
In yet another transparent bid for publicity, Phelps has announced that the Westboro Baptist Church will be picketing the funeral of Apple cofounder Steve Jobs because he “served [him]self, not God.”
And just how did she make this announcement? By tweeting it from her Apple iPhone.
The Kansas-based organization, which has protested memorials of everyone from victims of gay bashings to those killed in the 2006 Sago Mine disaster — often times with signs stating “God Hates Fags” — has called for “no peace” for Jobs.
Thankfully we now have a clear understanding that only people who create iPhones will be going to hell, not those who use iPhones.
