Cross-Post from The World...IMHO.
These people at Westboro are really sick, and very hypocritical. I don't consider them a church, because all they do is spew hatred.
I didn't agree with 'Brokeback' either. But there is a huge difference between speaking out about something that is wrong and playing God and condemning people. They also said he is in Hell. Only God will judge us and decide who goes to heaven, hell or purgatory.
There is NO point to their protest. It will only hurt his family and friends.
The Westboro Baptist Church, infamous for their anti-gay protests at funerals have announced they plan to protest at Heath Ledger's funeral. The Kansas-based church believe that nearly every tragedy in the world is linked to homosexuality and that society's increased tolerance and acceptance of homosexuals is to blame. The group also regularly picket the funerals of US servicemen saying they are fighting for a government that defies God's word. In 2007 The Church were the subject of the Louis Theroux documentary The Most Hated Family In America.
Citing Heath Ledger's part in the gay love story Brokeback Mountain the Church have announced their intention to protest at his funeral.
