Leave it to the crazy-as-fuck Westboro Baptists to actually be jealous that someone else is threatening to burn the Koran. “We did it first and nobody cared!” That’s right, nobody cares. No go crawl back under the cow patty you crawled out from.
Westboro Baptists: they may be pathetic excuses for human beings, but they certainly don’t disappoint for sheer entertainment value!
One of those angry at a Florida preacher’s plans to mark Sept. 11 by setting fire to copies of the Quran is Shirley Phelps Roper, a leader of the Westboro Baptist Church.
…Her irritation Wednesday was not that the Rev. Terry Jones and his Dove World Outreach Center’s planned bonfire would offend Muslims worldwide and probably increase the danger to American soldiers in Afghanistan and Iraq.
It’s that in 2008 she and her father’s Topeka flock set fire to a Quran in plain view on a Washington, D.C., street and nobody seemed to care.
“We did it a long time before this guy,” Phelps-Roper said by telephone from a street corner in downtown Chicago, scene of the latest Westboro picket — against Jews this time, not gays.
