Someone has finally discovered a place where the Westboro Baptist Church folks can protest with the support of most Americans.
Westboro Baptist Church, the
hate group that masquerades as a religious organization, is known for their publicity stunts, but they may have bit off more than they can chew with this one. After a comedian offered to pay for them to fly to Iraq so they can protest real Christian persecution at the hands of Islamic militants, the group tweeted that they have accepted his offer. They want to take their picket signs and head over to a country currently occupied by a group that beheads Christian children without hesitation – this ought to go well.
To bring you up to speed: Last week, Australian comedian Adam Hills gave an brilliant, hilarious proposal to the WBC after learned that they planned to – surprise, surprise – picket Robin Williams’ funeral. On his show, The Last Leg, Hills pointed out that the infamous “God Hates Fags” group is quick to march around with signs protesting American hedonism, but don’t have the courage to protest the daily persecution Christians in Iraq are facing at the hands of “the people threatening to behead Christians if they don’t convert.”

We accepted! Whence tickets? @PhilCooke: An offer to fly WBC members 2 Iraq 2 protest. Sounds like good idea to me: 
I'm willing to start a Kickstarter Campaign to raise the necessary funds to ship them all over there, in style, as long as we can make sure they are taken to the Airport in total security and not allowed to weasel out of their end of the bargain! I want to be at the departure gate waving with a huge audience all exclaiming soulfully in unison, BUH-BYEEEEEEEEE! 
When are they leaving?
