And then there's the Westboro Baptist Church, a group so-far known for
demonstrating at military funerals, where they chant and hold placards reading
GOD HATES AMERICA, etc., and celebrate the deaths in the current war as
evidence that God is punishing the US (God hates Canada and Sweden, too) for
tolerating gays. They believe that the 9/11 attacks were further evidence of
God's wrath. There was a clip of WBC members holding their 'GOD HATES?' signs
on CNN a few minutes ago. One of the sign holders looked to be about six. A
candidate for the ranks of future Christian suicide bombers, perhaps.
