Let's just get the predictable out of the way first.
The Westboro Baptist Church Wack-Pack has struck again. Instead of protesting a celebrity's funeral for a change, the Phelps family and their mindless congregation turned up at a recent Radiohead concert. The following, obtained from an article on MSN.com, was in turn quoted from the church's website:
"You have stolen the Word of God from your people and children, and as a sorry substitute, you prop up lightness and lies. You try to get the people to look at the nonsense and not at the wrath of God that abides upon them. "Look at the circus monkey over there and the fluffy setting, blah, blah..." Meanwhile, God is undoing this nation and effecting all of your lives, with the moth that quietly eats the very fabric of your national garment. Radiohead is just such an event. Freak monkeys with mediocre tunes keeps you busy and focused by lightness. It changes nothing, God is undoing and digging up and throwing down this nation."
The Phelps family just doesn't get it. God is a loving, caring, protective God, but it seems that the Phelpses and their misled flock have ignored much of the New Testament in favor of revisiting the Old Testament, where the Almighty was often wroth with anger toward His people because they repeatedly turned their backs on Him. That, folks, was the clearest definition of tough love that I've ever read.
Meanwhile, George Zimmerman walks free today, despite the fact he should be behind bars for killing Florida teen Trayvon Morgan last month. Zimmerman, backed by his legal counsel and his father, claims Morgan attacked him, but video evidence disproves this. The New York Post earlier this week splashed on their front page the phrase, "race hustlers", in reference to Revs. Al Sharpton & Jesse Jackson, who led peaceful protests in support of the deceased's family. Sharpton is also a talk show host these days on CNBC, and has found himself not only discussing current events, but being part of those events himself. Jackson can relate, as he's been there, done that, having had a past gig with CNN back in the day. The police claim there wasn't enough evidence to arrest Zimmerman, who has insisted that Morgan jumped him first. And you thought the Westboro Weirdos were delusional? There's something in the water down there in a sleepy little town few had heard of until the last month. The police chief in Sanford has been placed on administrative leave, and that should be just the beginning.
Clearly, someone has something to hide, trying to throw blame onto Morgan. Veteran journalist Geraldo Rivera, on Fox News,---and he should know better----claimed that Morgan's hoodie might've been a root cause. Bulloney! I've seen plenty of folks wearing hoodies up here in my district, and most are average, normal, unthreatening types. What are they trying to do down there, set race relations back all the way to the silent film era?
The Westboro flock now gets an unlimited supply of weasel ears, paws, and tails. Meanwhile, Zimmerman and his circle of apologists are getting some, just for trying to lie to the world when the evidence is pretty obvious, so much so that even a blind man could tell you the truth better than those clowns could be willing to.
