Westboro Baptist Church to Picket Steve Jobs' Funeral, Leader Tweets via iPhone

by at . Comments

The morons at the Westboro Baptist Church announced plans last night to protest Steve Jobs' funeral, but even they can't resist Apple's really cool tech stuff.

Margie Phelps, daughter of the church’s founder and a lawyer who represented the church during their First Amendment case at the Supreme Court (which Westboro won), Tweeted about the death of Steve Jobs using ... wait for it ...

Her iPhone.

“Westboro will picket his funeral. He had a huge platform; gave God no glory & taught sin,” Margie tweeted, apparently unable to appreciate the irony in embracing the cutting-edge advancements of a decent man they somehow condemn.

One church member, Shirley Phelps-Roper, offered this take: She suggested that God was manipulating Jobs to help advance the message of Westboro Baptist Church, writing: “God used Steve Jobs to create amazing STUFF for WBC to preach!”

Amen, sister.

The Topeka, Kansas based church believes God punishes America for its tolerance of sin, acceptance of homosexuality, and so on. They often have demonstrated - legally but reprehensibly - at funerals of celebrities and armed service personnel.

They can suck it.

They're gonna get dropped if they go to that funeral.


Ok... If this is their beliefs, then why are the living here????


God also doesn't like judgemental bigots...see you in hell Westboro...


Yay for THG, at least we know they aren't on this "church"s side. They (westboro) have no respect whatsoever!! Let the poor man rest In peace and have his funeral. Oh and if yall are doing this for publicity to preach ur beliefs...All I can say is may God have mercy on y'all the westboro church :( how sad.


MARGIE basks in the glory of publicity and "proudly" boasts of the appalling task her church intends to endorse-"greedily" hogging the limelight.
.....Margie; how about a slice of humble pie on the side with the 3 of the 7 deadly sins you're guzzling?? Mimi


I truly believe that to picket a person's funeral and cause the family pain is an act of evil and of sin. These folks get off on creating chaos and getting publicity for it, nothing more.


Will these fruitcakes EVER STFU?


No one can go to heaven or hell for anybody but themselves. God gave the freedom of choice. People need to stop bullying non believers and let their journey with God be theirs. God has never left Steve Jobs but it is Steve Jobs who left God. It was his choice. His family should be aloud to mourn for their loved one respectfully and dignified. It goes against everything God teaches to disrespect and hurt people. It is Christians who do negative things that help turn others away from church. I believe in God and I believe that their is decency in everyone including Steve Jobs. Let this man and his family be, they need to grieve they lost a husband, father and friend. Shame on those who would do anything to cause more pain to this family in the name of their church or God.


IMHO - The leader of Westboro is a wolf in sheep's clothing and those who follow him are being led like dumb sheep being led to slaughter...and slaughter they will one day all reap because of their actions.


They are going to cause the government to use this one church to hurt ALL of the churches here.
