The Westboro Baptist Church, those nutcases that picket soldiers' funerals with signs that say "God Hates Fags" and the like, have turned their attention to the funeral of Ronnie James Dio. Can you imagine the potential carnage? These people versus a shitload of mourning metal fans?
Not that violence is necessary or even desired. These Westboro Baptist people are an annoyance, that's all. Yes, they have a right to do whatever they want as long as they're not breaking the law. Free speech, freedom of religion, and all that. Yes, this will probably piss some people off because they're not being respectful to the departed. But who cares? They're attention whores and that's all. Not content to just having their own insane little services, they think the whole world needs to hear their message. Well, more power to them for trying, but if we stopped paying attention to them, they would go away. I'll start right after ending this post.
In closing, I do hope that no one gives them any attention at Dio's funeral. R.I.P. Ronnie James Dio. I'm sure you're looking at this whole situation and smiling.
