Quote by Westboro Baptist Church uses iPhone to announce protest at Steve Jobs’s funeral
Westboro Baptist Church announced plans Wednesday night to protest Steve Jobs’s funeral, sending the message out. . .wait for it. . . via Twitter for iPhone.

Margie Phelps, daughter of the small church’s founder and the lawyer who represented the church during their First Amendment case at the Supreme Court, (which Westboro won,) was among the Phelps family members to use Apple products to Tweet about the death of the Apple co-founder.

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

The Topeka, Kan. based church is mostly made up of Phelps family members but has risen to international infamy because of their funeral protests of celebrities and American soldiers. The church’s members believe that God punishes America for its tolerance of sin, including acceptance of homosexuality.

The iPhone-wielding Westboro members seemed unable to find any irony in their embrace of the technology of a man they condemn. One church member even suggested that God was using Jobs to help advance the message of Westboro Baptist Church: “God used Steve Jobs to create amazing STUFF for WBC to preach,” wrote Shirley Phelps-Roper.

Good for them. Jobs was a sinful man who never once used his power to spread the allmighty word of Christ, and hell awaits him for it.

Go WBC!!!1!

I can't believe you're making a thread about this when it's on the front page (top article, mind you) of UG's main page. Discuss on the comments section there, maybe?
Do you feel warm within your cage?

Sometimes divine intervention comes in the form of a Magnum handgun. Just sayin'.

I would love it if some guy killed every single one of those cunts and then claimed that he was working for God.

the only thing that will kill WBC is when people like you stop paying attention to them and even bringing them up. theoretically, picketing soldiers' funerals would've been the end of them because that's attacking their own base: conservatives.

they're opportunists looking for the next big death to picket to get themselves publicity. next thing you know they get asked to appear on such and such show and get paid x amount of ridiculous money for an exclusive interview. it's sick. stop paying attention to them. if everyone ignored them, they'd go away.

I seriously had no idea Steve Jobs had even died. I heard about this earlier and I was kinda confused.

Seriously, how the fuck did I miss that?

Just like they give God any glory.

God used Steve Jobs to create amazing stuff for WBC to preach.




They're just digging a deeper hole for themselves because if God created Steve Jobs to deliver messages, then that makes Steve Jobs an actual 'prophet' (a messenger of God) which would naturaly make any WBC members who protest his funeral sinners in the eyes of God.
