Westboro Baptist Church Victim of Arson?

 

Topeka, Kansas firefighters responded to calls about a fire at the Westboro Baptist Church compound early Saturday. Church spokeswoman Shirley Phelps-Roper believes the fire was the result of arson and called the act aggressive.

She said, "None of what they do is going to stop us from delivering our message" and pointed out that "there are two elderly people who live here".

Investigators say the fire started near two trash bins near a detached garage, spreading to a fence and the garage. The main houses and none of the contents of the garage were damaged by the fire.

  Hmmm  
 
Based on WBC's beliefs, maybe Shirley Phelps-Roper ought to look at what she may have done to anger God ...

Google "Westboro Baptist Church" and all will become clear.

  I bet  
 
that the whackos at the church started the fire themselves because they haven't been getting enough attention lately.

  I'd thought about that, too  
 
Them starting the fire themselves. So many people are taking the "don't feed the trolls" thing into the real world they aren't getting the press they're used to getting. As a matter of fact, the last I heard about them was when they lost a lawsuit a dead soldier's family had brought against them for invasion of privacy and emotional distress. Jury awarded the family $10.9 million. That, to me, is far more satisfying than any well-deserved but ultimately useless ass beating.

Oh, and a link to a documentary about them for Janey.
