This is the epitome of hypocrisy.
I typically don’t report on the idiots at Westboro Baptist Church, but a recent tweet caught my eye.
Margie J. Phelps, one of the 13 children of hatemongering pastor of Westboro Baptist Church, Fred Phelps, recently tweeted that Westboro would be picketing the funeral of Steve Jobs because Apple contributed money to help defeat California’s Proposition 8, which sought to ban same sex marriage. She tweeted:
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.
The fact that the douche bags at Westboro would picket Mr. Jobs’ funeral is not surprising. However, what makes the story brazenly hypocritical is that Phelps informed the public via Twitter from her iPhone!
And THAT made me smile.
Rest in peace, Mr. Jobs. Thank you for your life, your work, and for helping me to work harder, play better, and dream bigger.
Gawker has the story.
Here’s a pic of the full context of her tweet:
