Seriously, Westboro? Seriously?!

I’m pretty sure that by now this is allover the internet, but that won`t stop me from posting my own opinion on it. Take a look at the twitter screenshot below (that has been circulated intensely since this morning). The irony of it all is obvious; less so, it appears,  to Westboro Baptist Church:

*WARNING – Potentially offensive language ensues*

Seriously, you little close-minded fundamentalist shitheads? Seriously? I don’t know where the fuck you think you’re going AFTER you die, but while you’re still (unfortunately enough) wasting oxygen on this planet think about this: the man you’re slandering for not believing in your iron age fairy-tales has spent the past 30 years or more changing the world you live in for the better. What has your shitty little god done for humanity recently, eh? How many diseases has he cured, how many technological advancements that you brainwashed hypocrites take for granted and use daily has your god provided for you?

While you went around with your little picket signs and your childish little slogans slandering people and begging for media coverage like the filthy attention-whores that you are, this man has worked his ass off to give you the iPhones you use to tweet your horseshit, the computers you use to take your daily dose of brainwashing from your so-called cult leaders, the iPods you listen to your sermons on and oh-so-many more things you`ll never even know about, because you live under a fuckin` rock and preach a religion of love by acts of hatred.

Now before you accuse me of being an Apple-fanboy you should know I`ve used a PC my entire life and plan to continue doing so in the near and far future. I was never a big fan of Apple products, or their marketing strategy, but you know what I have and you retarded fucktards lack? I have respect for a man whose name has become synonymous to innovation. And you know what? I have to hand it to the man: even in death, he managed to attract haters.

Whoever pisses enough people off to want to make them picket their funeral, as childish and absurd as the reasons may be, has a place in my little book of awesome people. And apparently, that’s what pissed you off in the first place: the guy had money, friends, a huge following, and ideas for a better world, without having to kneel to an imaginary being in the sky. Meanwhile you’re so dumb you have to have your ideas force-fed to you through a tube, you think your imaginary friend has a problem with who a man chooses to love, give all your money to the church so that your “guru” can live in luxury, and you’re so small that you need to cause a fuss to be given any sort of media attention.

In closing, Westboro, I give you the Middle Finger of the Week award and have this to say to you: I sure as hell hope you picket MY funeral when I die, it`ll mean I really did something in life worth slandering.

    I will forever remember Mr Jobs as the man who makes (made) useless things highly indispensable:) But I do listen to music on an ipad. But if it weren’t for the ipad, it would have been something else and its inventor would have eventually kicked the bucket too. And so on.

    Don’t bother. Really. They’re already getting too much publicity.

    I loved Cult of Mac’s attitude towards this, they were something like if they plan to do anything about the funeral (not that they’d get any chance to get close to it) they have a pretty big staff. So that’s okay. 😀

    @Ioana: exactly, you’re right, which is why this post isn’t about Steve Jobs, it’s about the absurdities of religious fundamentalism. I`m sure that if someone else, equally important, and equally atheistic, had died, they would’ve done the same with him.

    @Sabina: Thumbs up at Cult of Mac! 🙂 but really, somebody should put those nutters (Westboro) where they belong: in an asylum, on proper medication.

      But we all know that highly religious and righteous people judge everyone, because god said “thou shalt not judge”, I was more “concerned” with his passing away and what he left behind.
