Zombies for America
Does God hate zombies? Well you’d have to ask the good people of Westboro Bapatist Church. If you’ve never heard of this particular congregation (which only self imposed isolation from the world would make possible) they are a whole pile of crazy. Scratch that. They are THE whole pile of crazy. They hate everything, absolutely everything, from gay people (because Old Testament God had real specific views on intercourse) to the coffee you drink (because Jesus didn’t personally grind those beans). Okay, I made up that second one. The point stands though, these are some hateful people. You can read all about them on Wikipedia, or hear about it from the source at the Westboro Baptist Church: www.godhatesfags.com . No, that is not a joke. That is their official website.
What does all this have to do with zombies, you ask? Nothing really, except that zombies rose up to defy the latest Westboro protest over…does it really matter? The Westboro Baptist Church hates every fucking thing.
In this specific case they were protesting the oh so obvious correlation between homosexuality and the deaths of our troops overseas. Of course! It’s all so simple! So, once the Westboro congregation put two and two together and got the numerical equivalent of batshit crazy, they stepped into action, and decided to picket Ft. Lewis, in DuPont, Washington.
To completely defuse this ridiculous situation, some relatively sane people decided to organize a counter protest by dressing up as zombies to prevent the picketing of the aforementioned base. And it worked; crazies were successfully kept at bay, at least for once. You can see a video clip of it here. So there you have it. In a rare turn of events, zombies actually helped. I’m sure the Westboro folks will let us know how God feels about this.
