Leaders of the Westboro Baptist Church have revealed plans to picket “in lawful proximity” at the funeral of Robert Ebert. The beloved movie critic sadly lost his battle with cancer on Thursday at the age of 70, and the notoriously anti-gay religious group have unveiled the following news release:
GOD HATES F-G ENABLER ROGER EBERT! LORD WILLING, WBC TO PICKET IN LAWFUL PROXIMITY TO THE FUNERAL OF F-G ENABLER ROGER EBERT AT “PREISTS RAPE BOYS” HOLY NAME CATHEDRAL (730 N. STATE STREET, CHICAGO, IL), MONDAY, APRIL 8, FROM 9:15-10:00 AM
For 22 years Westboro has warned the people of Topeka, Kansas & America that the policies of sin of this land have brought the wrath of God upon you, your houses, your city, your state, & your nation. American entertainment industry publicity leech Roger Ebert took to Twitterverse to mock the faithful servants of God at Westboro Baptist Church, just days before he received the horrifying summons: “Thou fool, this night thy soul shall be required of thee: [now] whose shall [that silly vanity called a Pulitzer Prize] be, which thou has provided?” (Luke 12:20) This fool sold his soul for some fame & fortune, forgetting that God has made a simple declaration regarding His people: “Touch not mine anointed, and do my prophets no harm.” (Psalms 105:15). Now the famed critic is in a new jurisdiction, where he can see the blessings poured out on God’s humble servants in heaven, from his seat of eternal torment & sorrow in Hell! It’s too late for the fool Roger Ebert! WBC will continue to bind those who still live in Doomed america to God’s eternal laws & Word, so you, like Roger, are without excuse!
Ebert has in the past mentioned Kansas’ Westboro Baptist Church on his twitter, in reference to a book by a gay man, Jeff Chu, who spent a day at the church as research for his work, titled ‘Does Jesus Really Love Me?: A Gay Christian’s Pilgrimage In Search Of God in America’.
Ebert joins a list of funerals which Westboro have picketed, including Michael Jackson, Steve Jobs, the victims of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting, many gay soldiers, and those who were killed because of their sexuality.
Ebert’s funeral will take place on Monday in Chicago at 10am, and Westboro plan to protest from 9.15-10am.
