Miscalibrated Internet Receptor Stalks

From Westboro Baptist Church are planning on picketing the funeral for the firefighters lost from my hometown.

I'm caught somewhere between outrage, as these were good men who died protecting a community of people that wasn't their own - people they didn't even know - and merely chuckling at the oddity that a people group would devote that much energy to hatred and their own imaginations. They take themselves quite seriously, and I'm quite sure no one else does.

They're like satire - like an onion article come to life, or a group from a grand theft auto game.
