From Jezebel - Westboro Baptist Wanted to Picket Nimoy's Funeral, But Couldn't Find ItEvery now and then we at NLQ get to see some righteous karma play out. The very fact that WBC could not find out where Nimoy's funeral was and stink up the joint with their disrespectful signs is some sort of divine justice.From Jezebel:It's not quite poetic justice, but we'll take it: the Westboro Baptist Church, a group of litigious trolls with the barest ties to Jesus, were unable to picket Leonard Nimoy's funeral because they don't know where it is.
