Westboro Baptist Church Picketing Steve Jobs’ Funeral
As I’m sure all of you have heard by now, Apple co-founder Steve Jobs died yesterday. This was a sad day in the nerd community. Say what you will about the man, he made some amazing technology that set the standard for a lot of tech. But, of course, someone is taking the “Say what you will” too far.
Margie Phelps, daughter of Westboro Baptist Church leader Fred Phelps, tweeted today that Westboro would be picketing Jobs’ funeral. The Phelps Clan has done fucked up stuff like this before. They have picketed military funerals and a couple of them showed up at Elizabeth Edwards’ funeral. But what is really funny about this is the tweet.
“Westboro will picket his funeral.He had a huge platform; gave God no glory & taught sin. MT @AP: Apple co-founder Steve Jobs has died at 56.”
While the tweet itself is not funny, look at the image above. She tweeted this from her fucking iPhone. She went on to tweet even more shit with the creation of the fucking Adversary, such as:
She went on to try to justify this hypocrisy, saying that “God created iPhones” for the purpose of telling us that Steve Jobs was dead. That’s right. God created iPhones so that Margie Phelps could tweet that the guy who created the iPhone was in Hell…. Don’t you just love religion?
