When it comes to the well-documented idiocy of the Westboro Baptist Church
, I'm never sure whether to laugh or to cry. They are at least adept at one thing, however, and that's stirring up controversy. And I hate giving them yet another sliver of attention, which they so desperately seek, but I can't resist.
By now, you all know that Slayer
guitarist Jeff Hanneman passed away
yesterday. Well, it didn't take long for the fine folks at Westboro Baptist to pounce, with the following Tweet (I'm extremely hopeful that about 12,973 of their 12,982 followers pay attention for entertainment purposes). Anyway, there's really nothing else to say about it, I suppose. You all know what to do (shake your head, move on, and listen to some Slayer).
