    Westboro Baptist Church, the hate group that masquerades as a religious organization, is known for their publicity stunts, but they may have bit off more than they can chew with this one. After a comedian offered to pay for them to fly to Iraq so they can protest real Christian persecution at the hands of Islamic militants, the group tweeted that they have accepted his offer. They want to take their picket signs and head over to a country currently occupied by a group that beheads Christian children without hesitation – this ought to go well.

    To bring you up to speed: Last week, Australian comedian Adam Hills gave an brilliant, hilarious proposal to the WBC after learned that they planned to – surprise, surprise – picket Robin Williams’ funeral. On his show, The Last Leg, Hills pointed out that the infamous “God Hates [email protected]” group is quick to march around with signs protesting American hedonism, but don’t have the courage to protest the daily persecution Christians in Iraq are facing at the hands of “the people threatening to behead Christians if they don’t convert.”….

    I'll believe it when I see it. The link doesn't really confirm they will go. If they do they will probably be welcomed by the terrorist for their anti-gay stance.

    I have a hard time believing they are actually going to go.

    But if they do, God have mercy on them.

    It's really sad.

    I'm not even sure they would really be able to go even if they wanted to. It's not as simple as booking a plane ticket.
