So by now you\’ve likely heard of a bill in the State Legislature that would bar protesters from demonstrating at funerals, military or otherwise. This bill is in response to funeral demonstrations by The Westboro Church of Kansas, led by noted hatemonger Fred Phelps. Phelps argues that deaths of the soldiers in the Iraq War are God\’s revenge on the United States for its acceptance of homosexuality.

My question if this – if God truly is vindictive, what could America possibly have done that is bad enought for The Lord to burden us with Fred Phelps?
