Mere hours after the passing of former Penn State football coach Joe Paterno on Sunday, the haterizers from Westboro Baptist Church decided they would picket the funeral. Marge Phelps issued a series of tweets condemning Paterno for his lack of action in the child sex abuse scandal that cost him his job 2 months ago, but all this really is, of course, is an excuse for this flock of fools to extend their 15 minutes of infamy a wee bit longer. I read of their intentions on http://www.msn.com/, and just shook my head. They just won't go away.
They last picketed Steve Jobs' funeral, and had threatened to do the same when Elizabeth Taylor passed away, but never followed through because the movie icon's funeral was kept private and away from cameras. For the sake of the Paterno family, the Phelps' congregation of idiots needs to stay away. The last thing we need is the funeral becoming a media circus.
