Westboro Baptist Church: God killed Jeff Hanneman (Slayer)

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).

Westboro Baptist goes after Slayer's Jeff Hanneman

Well according to Slayer God hates us all. So yes, this I most likely true.

anonymous 5/3/2013 11:50:20 AM

Do these people actually have a church building. If so, Varg should make it his next hit. fcking lunatics.

anonymous 5/3/2013 12:23:48 PM

Looks like they really love that hating and killing stuff don't they. I suggest they start listening to Slayer and blow off some steam. Oh and I want to know if they count their dead too or just "our" idols? Is it God who killed their brains before he took a turn on Jeff? I have nothing against the church, it's just these living idiots who persist in keeping on living, but I'm sure their god will take care of that soon enough.

anonymous 5/3/2013 12:43:42 PM

anonymous 5/3/2013 1:18:20 PM

Hey, you know what's an even better idea than pissing off anonymous? Pissing off LAMBGOAT. Stupid bigot church.

anonymous 5/3/2013 4:50:25 PM

once I get a terminal illness I am going to Indiana and buying a gun because they will sell em to anyone there, and I will personally wipe out these fcking insensitive dipshits.

anonymous 5/3/2013 5:02:32 PM

I can't wait until some of the prominent Westboro members pass away so that we can throw a pizza party at their funeral and blast Slayer. Who is in? I will travel anywhere for that.

MeatDelivery 5/3/2013 5:28:40 PM

Someone do a driveby on this gay picket line.

anonymous 5/3/2013 6:16:33 PM

wooooowwwwwwww. This makes me very grateful to be a Slayer fan. Thats all I can say.

anonymous 5/3/2013 6:19:28 PM

No worries!! Hell Awaits for the Westboro Bastards and Hanneman will oversee their buring!

anonymous 5/10/2013 6:31:17 PM

Doesn't it say in that bible that you people read let he who is without sin cast the first stone? For a bunch of self righteous bible toting zealots you run around judging people and picketing funerals and all the other retarded crap that you do why cant you be like a normal cult and drink tainted Kool Aid and cut your balls off before you return to the mother ship. I am all for freedom of speech and freedom of religion it is the freedom of stupidity I have a problem with
