For those unaware of who the Westboro Baptist "church" is, you can catch up on all the pieces about them here, but long story short, they protest at military funerals or high profile funerals holding signs that say "god hates fags" or God hates America. To them god hates just about everybody because homosexuals exist... they are twisted and sick.
Now they are planning to travel to Canada to picket at the funeral of Tim McLean, the 22 year-old that was stabbed, decapitated and by most accounts, parts of him were eaten.
The reason stated by Westboro founder, Fred Phelps, God is punishing Canada.
"We're trying to get you to see that your rebellion against the standards of God, your disobedience to the commandments - your idols, your false gods, your filthy ways have brought wrath upon your head.
Yesterday PETA was in the news for trying to use McLean's death for their advertising campaigns, to which the newspaper they wanted to run them, refused.
Tim McLean's family deserves time to mourn and these two pathetic groups need to stay out of their faces.
[Update] Reports show that border patrol will not let the members of Westboro into Canada to picket McLean's funeral.
Canadian border guards are under orders to prevent members of a fundamentalist American church from crossing into Canada to protest at the funeral Saturday of a Winnipeg man brutally killed on a Greyhound bus last week.
Westboro Baptist Church, a controversial Kansas-based sect, intends to picket the funeral of 22-year-old Tim McLean to tell Canadians his slaying on July 30 was God's response to Canadian policies enabling abortion, homosexuality and adultery.
"God is punishing Canada for passing laws against WBC — by exposing Canadians as cannibals and highway decapitaters," the church says in a news release on its website, which refers to McLean as "The Headless Canadian."
