The Westboro Baptists are in 'Da House!

Just when you thought the nutcakes at Westboro Baptist Church in Topeka, Kansas must have finally realized how moronic they've been, and have gone into hiding at last, up pops proof to the contrary.

Isn't it comforting to know that these folks are still looking out for America's best interests?

Ladies and Gentlemen -- the Westboro Baptist Church in their rocking music-video rendition of "God Hates the World."

The folks at Warner/Chappel Music of Los Angeles, California, copyright holders of the song "We Are the World" (for which a music video was produced to help raise money for famine relief), are attempting to block the distribution of Westboro Baptist Church's "God Hates the World", claiming copyright violations.

The Westboro Baptists are resisting...

An attorney for Topeka, Kan.-based Westboro Baptist Church said Thursday the parody, "God Hates the World," is protected under First Amendment rights of freedom of speech and religious expression. She said the church would continue to post the video on its Web site.

Westboro Baptist pastor, the Rev. Fred Phelps Sr., has garnered national attention in a campaign against homosexuality.

The church contends that soldiers' deaths in Iraq and Afghanistan are God's punishment for a tolerance of homosexuality in the United States.

"It's all our effort to deliver a faithful message to this generation," said Shirley Phelps-Roper, church attorney and daughter of the pastor.

Sometimes truth is stranger than fiction.
