Westboro Baptist Church Puts Out Call To Protest Steve Jobs’ Funeral Using Twitter for iPhone



Those mother$@#!-ers! The hate mongering, homophobic sons of bitches at the Westboro Baptist Church are already planning on protesting Steve Jobs funeral. And without a hint of irony, they put out the call for the protest using Twitter for iPhone. Those evil, detestable idiots.

The call to protest Steve Jobs’ funeral was made by Margie Phelps, daughter of Fred Phelps, the founder of the Westboro Baptist Church whose past actions have included protesting the deaths of military servicemen, proclaiming Barack Obama to be the antichrist, and famously declaring that “God Hates Fags.”

“Westboro will picket his funeral. He had a huge platform; gave God no glory & taught sin,” said Margie Phelps on Wednesday night, using her iPhone.

I don’t think there’s a frickin’ chance these jokers will get anywhere near Steve Jobs’ funeral. The chances, in fact, of Steve Jobs having a public funeral are slim to none. If they’re successful, though, they may very well bite off more than they can chew. Here at Cult of Mac, we’ve seen incredible blowback in the past for even there being the perception that we are criticizing Steve. If these hateful tools even get within 1,000 feet of Steve Jobs’ body, my guess is they’ll be sneezing spleen by the end of the day as a horde of the Apple faithful descend and rain blows down upon them.
