And the would-be Americans are at it again.  If they protest at military funerals, they'll protest at the funeral at the most prized and admired film critic in U.S. history, Roger Ebert.

So let me get this straight:  They protest at funerals but they never protest in front of Roger Ebert's house?  

Ahhh yes, that must mean these people are deranged.  No wait, crazy.  Nah, that can't be it.  AHHHH, they're stupid!  Nope, can't be that either.

Wait, it must have been this Tweet:

So now they're mad:

In retaliation to beloved film critic Roger Ebert’s criticism of the Westboro Baptist Church on Twitter, the anti-gay religious group has announced that they will protest at Ebert’s funeral Monday morning.

The church released a statement online against Ebert on Saturday riddled with vitriolic language against Ebert along with sparse details about the protest set for this morning.

APRIL 8, FROM 9:15 - 10:00 AM

For 22 years Westboro has warned the people of Topeka,
Kansas & America that the policies of sin of this land have
brought the wrath of God upon you, your houses, your city,
your state, & your nation. American entertainment industry
publicity leech Roger Ebert took to Twitterverse to mock the
faithful servants of God at Westboro Baptist Church, just days
before he received the horrifying summons: “Thou fool, this
night thy soul shall be required of thee: [now] whose shall
[that silly vanity called a Pulitzer Prize] be, which thou has
provided?” (Luke 12:20) This fool sold his soul for some fame
& fortune, forgetting that God has made a simple declaration
regarding His people: “Touch not mine anointed, and do my
prophets no harm.” (Psalms 105:15). Now the famed critic is in
a new jurisdiction, where he can see the blessings poured out
on God's humble servants in heaven, from his seat of eternal
torment & sorrow in Hell! It's too late for the fool Roger Ebert!
WBC will continue to bind those who still live in Doomed
america to God's eternal laws & Word, so you, like Roger, are
without excuse!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
