Nothing makes me happier than seeing bigots from the Westboro ("God Hates F#gs") Baptist Church getting a strong dose of well-deserved ridicule. They recently got some when the Foo Fighters played a date in Kansas City which the Westboro bigots stupidly decided to protest.
There's nothing that the professional haters from Westboro like more than attention. Even negative attention is welcomed by them. Their protests of the funerals of fallen military members were designed to draw attention and eventually groups formed to show up to block those protesters and their nasty, hurtful signs from the eyes of grieving friends and families.
After our withdrawal from combat zones, they expanded their protest venues which included nearby concerts and events.
More on why this was a stupid decision below the cheese curl.
