Westboro Baptist Church to Picket Ryan Dunn's Funeral

by at . Comments

The Westboro Baptist Church is at it again.

The notorious, radical Kansas group responsible for protests at the funerals of gay rights supporters, Iraq war veterans, Elizabeth Edwards and innocent children alike, announced plans to picket the funeral of Jackass star Ryan Dunn.

In the news release, titled "Ryan Dunn is in hell!" Westboro calls for the picket due to "vulgar stunts" and involvement in MTV's Jackass franchise.

Dunn, R.

The 34-year-old Dunn perished in a car crash early Monday morning, along with friend Zachary Hartwell. Dunn was driving drunk and very fast.

Ryan's death has generated controversy in part due to comments by Roger Ebert, who criticized his apparent drunk driving the very same day.

It's clear Dunn's bad decision making played a role in his demise, along with Hartwell's. But both men deserved to be buried in peace and remembered fondly by those close to them without Westboro Baptist Church's meddling.

We're not advocating any sort of violent confrontation by any means ... but let's just say if Bam Margera and the Jackass crew decided to f*%k with the Westboro peeps via some elaborate pranks, we wouldn't stand in their way.

This church doesnt sound like a church....Sounds more like a sick twisted cult.

I think the westboro church is ridiculous. How could they even call themselves a church? Everything Ive ever heard about these people are awful things. God loves us all no matter what. We are all sinners and we all make mistakes. But even so what they are doing to people is just awful. The deceased deserve peace and respect. They think just because they call themselves a church they have a right to act any way they please but thats what makes the whole thing even more wrong. They know better as "people of god" so whatever. Beware of your "false prophecies". These people definately fall into that category. God is loving, caring, understanding and most of all forgiving. They need to learn about what they say they stand for because their actions make them seem like they are on the wrong side.

I'm looking forward to the day when Fred Phelps dies. Then he and his followers can give the WBC a nice harty taste of their own medicine.

Kristina marie-They were telling the tox results yesterday, he was 2 1/2 times over the legal limit, but it still doesn't give them the right to picket his funeral. They have family and friends just like everyone else, he just made a really bad decision and his friend chose to get into the vehicle with him.

I personally would love to see them try...just for the fact that Bam and the crew from Jackass would make sure they never picketed again...These people are self righteous hypocrites that don't know the love of God...they think that anyone who doesn't go to their church is going to hell...who died and made Phelps Judge and Jury...they are the real Jackasses...

Oh and it hasn't been proven that Ryan was drunk. The tox results won't be back for weeks. So stfu about him being a "drunk jackass".
