If you think gleefully picketing the funerals of dead soldiers with posters declaring “GOD HATES FAGS” is bewildering behavior, you should see what mischief the Westboro Baptist Church gets up to on social media.

They really love to sing.

But not as much as they love their signs.

I don’t know about you all, but I’ve never felt closer to salvation.
