One last weekend video from Hell: God hates America

Although Capitalist Pig vs. Socialist Swine found it to be possibly the funniest video on the Internet, I found it very disturbing that people (in this case, the infamously homophobic and hate-filled Westboro Baptist Church) can actually think this way and seriously believe the statements in this video.

Check out the smirk on the narrator’s face at the end of the video.

These are probably the same sort of people who are openly rejoicing over the fighting in Lebanon and Gaza because they believe it’s a sign of the end times and that their impending rapture is near. (The original link is no longer active, but others have commented and included excerpts.)

I’m depressed.

By Orac

Orac is the nom de blog of a humble surgeon/scientist who has an ego just big enough to delude himself that someone, somewhere might actually give a rodent's posterior about his copious verbal meanderings, but just barely small enough to admit to himself that few probably will. That surgeon is otherwise known as David Gorski.

That this particular surgeon has chosen his nom de blog based on a rather cranky and arrogant computer shaped like a clear box of blinking lights that he originally encountered when he became a fan of a 35 year old British SF television show whose special effects were renowned for their BBC/Doctor Who-style low budget look, but whose stories nonetheless resulted in some of the best, most innovative science fiction ever televised, should tell you nearly all that you need to know about Orac. (That, and the length of the preceding sentence.)

DISCLAIMER:: The various written meanderings here are the opinions of Orac and Orac alone, written on his own time. They should never be construed as representing the opinions of any other person or entity, especially Orac's cancer center, department of surgery, medical school, or university. Also note that Orac is nonpartisan; he is more than willing to criticize the statements of anyone, regardless of of political leanings, if that anyone advocates pseudoscience or quackery. Finally, medical commentary is not to be construed in any way as medical advice.
