The Prototype Church of the Poisoned Mind

Why is it religious people take so much ownership of the word "marriage" --  but don't seem to be concerned at all that anyone can call their organization a "church"? Unlike other houses of worship, which are praying for victims of the recent Asian earthquake and tsunami and organizing relief efforts, the Westboro Baptist Church (which maintains a compassionate web site at www.godhatesfags.com) is celebrating the tragedy.

With churches like this, who needs dens of iniquity?

>From RawStory.com:

RAW STORY has discovered that the Westboro Baptist Church leaders known for picketing the funeral of Matthew Shepard, the young college student brutally murdered in Wyoming in 1998, have released the following statement regarding the tsunamis which hit Southeast Asia earlier in the week.

The statement, which was posted on their web site Wednesday alongside dozens of other archived "press releases," thanks God for the tsunami and for the death of any gay Swedish vacationers who perished at the time.

Here's just an excerpt (the poor grammar and sentence structure is theirs -- not mine):

Thank God for Tsunami & 2,000 Dead Swedes!
How many tsunami-dead Swedes are fags & dykes? vacationing on their fat expendable incomes without kids to bother with and spend money on. With respect to each of these earthquake-dead perverts: "He shall be buried with the burial of an ass." Jer. 22:19. Maybe Sweden can pass another law -- making it a crime for God to send earthquakes and tidal waves to kill vacationing Swedish fags & dykes.
