Westboro Baptist Church Freaks Over DOMA Ruling, Claims Hell Is Near

As Americans across the country celebrated the Supreme Court's landmark decision to strike down parts of the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) and essentially nullify California's gay marriage ban known as Proposition 8, a smaller, grumpier and virulently anti-gay group of protesters were decidedly less happy.

The Westboro Baptist Church, known for its strident positions on homosexuality, said "God Almighty's ruling cannot be overruled by man."

Now, WBC members -- who have threatened to protest at funerals for service members, Aurora shooting victims and children who died at Sandy Hook Elementary -- will soon be heading to the Supreme Court, according to vocal member and spokeswoman Shirley Phelps-Roper.

1. Quite an interesting devil there...

From the transparency of his **er** skin, I'd almost think he belongs among the group the WBC is protesting.

3. That makes sense.

I looked at the caption in the Huffington Post and didn't see an explanation. Interesting (and a bit misleading) that it isn't even a photo from today.

5. Yeah, it is odd how they have it.

You have to put your mouse on the pic in the story to see the info.

And with the mention of hell and damnation a devil pic was a good call. And since the WBC is still planing the protest, they needed to find one from the files.

7. Yep. Them and some other groups.

From the Artical:
The WBC was joined in its angst by a series of conservative activists who decried the Supreme Court ruling. The American Family Association's Bryan Fischer even worried that the decisions would quickly lead to "the normalization of polygamy, pedophilia, incest and bestiality.
