Westboro Baptist Church

Westboro Baptist Church may be the ultimate scam organization.  It's unclear whether there's anybody outside their organization that can stand them, and they're very good at eliciting reactions from people.  Some of them are lawyers, which comes in handy when they file lawsuits claiming that their civil rights were violated.  Do they actually believe the nonsense they spout about gay people?  I have no idea.

Their Facebook page gives a pretty good idea of the level of discourse.

Not too surprisingly, the idiocy has also made its way to Twitter.  One tweet by Margie Phelps is priceless.  She announces that the WBC plans to picket Steve Jobs' funeral.  According to Twitter, this was posting using ... *drumroll* ... an IPhone.
