You Knew This Was Coming; Westboro Baptist Church Will Picket Site of School Shooting

It’s not surprising. We knew it was going to happen. Still, though, it’s absolutely infuriating because it takes focus off the victims and onto those who use the Bible to justify their bigotry:

Just when you thought you couldn’t get any more despicable than the likes of Mike Huckabee and Bryan Fischer… the “God Hates Fags” people find a way to make those jerks look downright compassionate.

Please don’t forget: Any memorial service should be solely focused on the lives that were lost and the lives that had yet to really be lived. Not on the people whose mission in life is to spread hatred. This isn’t about them no matter how much attention they try to draw to themselves.

***Update***: There’s a Facebook event page (time/date unspecified) calling for a non-violent response to Westboro whenever they picket the school.
