How Betty Ford Saved the Lives of the Westboro Hate Cult
If you were the notorious hate-a-palooza Westboro Bastard “[The idol of death and destruction we worship, which we call] GOD Hates Everybody Except For Us” Cult of Attention Queens, and you had the choice to crash funeral of a) a 93-year-old woman who passed away peacefully, after a long life full of accomplishments and achievements, or b) a 9-year-old child who was brutally murdered in a state which just also happened to pass a law recognizing gay marriage, whose funeral would you hijack with your “GodHatesFags” rainbow posters?
If you guessed (b) the 9-year-old murder victim, you’d be WRONG! The Phelps haters decided to show up at the funeral of the 93-year-old.
Why did they do that? Usually their preferred venue to spew their hate is at the services of soldiers fallen in battle, victims of terrorist attacks, or young children, victims of child abuse, natural disasters or devastating illness: people who have died under unnatural and tragic circumstances. First Lady Betty Ford, on the other hand, passed away calmly and peacefully, after a long, productive life during which she achieved many great accomplishments and inspired millions of people, not to mention saving countless lives by inspiring victims of life-threatening addictions to seek help for their afflictions.
Whatever warped reasons the Westboro hate clan had for crashing Mrs. Ford’s memorial, their presence there, instead in Brooklyn at the funeral of little Leiby Kletzky, probably saved their lives.
