Douche(s) of the day

And the winner(s) is...

This lovely crew, from the Westboro Baptist Church in Topeka Kansas.

As I am sure most people are aware, Elizabeth Edwards passed away the other day, after a difficult battle with cancer. In addition to the awful suffering that this disease can bring, she was also forced to deal with the public humiliation of her husbands infidelity.

So, you would think, the normal reaction to her passing would be a certain level of sadness and sympathy. You might possibly feel a bit of comfort knowing that her painful ordeal is over.

What you would not expect is a hate-filled protest at her funeral because she had the temerity to question her faith 14 years ago when her oldest son died. But, that's exactly how the single-toothed dickheads from the church of the small minded in Topeka have decided to pay their respects.

And what good is a protest without some well crafted signage? "Elizabeth is in hell now" and "Blasphemists get cancer" are a couple of the early favorites. It is expected that the group will bust out a few of their well-worn "God hates fags" signs as well, since Elizabeth was a supporter of gay rights.

As a skeptic, I question the existence of a higher power. But if he is up there, I can only imagine how proud he must be of this particular segment of his flock.

"I said I hate figs, you idiots! Figs!"
