LOL. are they so stupid they don't even realize they've purchased and are using an apple product to get their message out? Are they so stupid they don't even know Steve Jobs co-founded Apple? YUP!

Ahh, the delicious irony. Shame that probably no one in that congregation will get it.
Actually, these people may unintentionally do something of value by making obvious the foolishness of the unquestioning deference in our society to christian churches and their agendas. No other faith and certainly no humanist value system gets the same eternal Free Pass.

I will never understand them, ever. They make me sad to be a human being and if I were baptist, I wouldn't touch them with a 90 mile pole. They seem to just be ignorant hypocrites spouting hatred and "giving God no glory."

Two members of the Westbor Baptist Church did an interview with a guy on YouTube named Thunderf00t back in July that pretty much explains exactly why they so no problem with what we see as irony.
Margie Phelps said this when he questioned their use of smart phones, "[Technology] is created by god for one reason so Westboro Baptist church could tell this world, at this hour, god hates you for your proud sins. So of course we use it."

The funniest part is that they are using an IPHONE to tweet hate! The same phone the he created! Wish there was a way they could fry the phones at the funeral!

I can guarantee they are also using Microsoft products as well, another strong supporter of equality. This is why we need these groups to boycott pro-equality businesses - so they have no way of getting their message out. Do you think that was an iPhone with AT&T? Another pro-equality business (according to HRC).

WBC is irrelevant. Until someone kills one of them, or they stoop to violence... stop catering to their fading infamy.

Don't these clowns have anything better to do than give Christianity a bad name with every action they take? Why don't they try some kind of creative way to spread the Gospel? Truly pathetic.

If homosexuality is a sin then by that logic virtue must be evil.

Imagine how many Christians there would be in this world today if all that Jesus did was protest funerals?

Almost as entertaining as the Harold Camping crew that were using credit cards to fill the tanks of their trucks right up until May 21. Most of these wackos aren't particularly moral.
