Seriously, the assholes from the Westboro Church of “Do Everything the Opposite of Jesus” are traveling to Midwood on Monday as part of their Godsmack Tour (not going to link to it, too awful). They will be protesting (again) Jews—specifically, the Jews at Midwood’s Yeshiva Rabbi Chaim Berlin on Coney Island Avenue, along with Chabad of Kensington and Yeshiva Torah Teminah, both on Ocean Parkway, though I’m sure any Jew would do for Fred Phelps’s incandescent hatred of everyone except the other six members of the Westboro Baptist Church:
The rest of the Jews [other than the 144,000 obedient Jews] represent the disobedient masses of mankind who will dwell eternally where the worm that eats them never dies and the fire ascend up forever and ever.
While I do respect America’s absolute position on the freedom of speech, there are times (like these) when I wish a big scary squad of helmeted stormtroopers would just come in and crack the idiots’ skulls. Failing that, I encourage everyone to get down to Midwood on Monday to join the counterprotest, which, with Westboro, will always be bigger than the original.
