ROFLMAO!

A group of New Yorkers calling themselves The Satanic Temple paid a visit to what appears to be the grave of the mother of Westboro Baptist Church (WBC) founder Fred Phelps on Sunday, staging two same sex commitment ceremonies atop the tombstone in hopes of confronting the hate group in a manner that’s uniquely offensive to them.

The WBC is well known for their anti-LGBT demonstrations and the slogan “God Hates Fags,” among others. The Satanic Temple said in an advisory (caution: NSFW photos) that its members were angry that the WBC would threaten to protest the funerals of the Boston bombing victims, so they went to Boston hoping for a confrontation that never emerged.

The Satanic Temple now believes that Fred Phelps must believe that his mother is now gay, in the afterlife, due to our Pink Mass… And nobody can challenge our right to our beliefs,” a spokesperson said in an advisory.

I have nothing to add, other than if you keep messing with people, they will eventually mess with you back.

Man....

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.
