Westboro Baptist Church to Protest at Ole Miss

Leave it to the kind and wonderful members at Westboro Baptist Church to give us our laugh for today.

Westboro's congregation, whose whole goal is to show up anywhere they aren't wanted to protest whatever wild hair strikes them at the moment, has now decided to invade the SEC.

Their first stop is Oxford, Mississippi, home of the Ole Miss Rebels. What's wrong with Ole Miss? They have the nerve to be home to Michael Oher, on which the movie The Blind Side was based.

The WBC members are pissed that Oher is being worshiped as an idol -- from their perspective, anyway - and that's not good, according to them.

Here is their statement:

Another idol of Doomed USA is Ole Miss, your football idol, featured in movie, "The Blind Side." Did we tell you, God hates your idols?!  Shortly, God will cast down all the idols of this nation, and in that hour, you WILL get an understanding of The Blind Side - just before God drop kicks your rebellious, idolatrous back sides directly into hell! All the players will be there, and you can get up close and personal with them, as you curse each other FOR ETERNITY! That is a LONG time!

When God turns his hand to destroy Doomed USA, pursuant to His plain word, He will destroy all your false gods.

Exodus 12:12  For I will pass through the land of Egypt this night, and will smite all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, both man and beast; and against all the gods of Egypt I will execute judgment: I am the LORD.

You should have heeded our warnings, and put away your idols and feared and obeyed your God!

Yep, you got it right folks, these god-fearing hate mongers -- who, incidentally, seriously need the divine hand of an editor -- are protesting a player who pulled himself out of the gutter to make it to the NFL. What a terrible person he is!

And it's obvious they don't keep up with modern times, because the book and the movie based on Oher's life are over five years old.

Keep in mind these are the same folks who protested at the Final Four in Atlanta, NBA player Jason Collins, and a host of other sporting events that had all one thing in common: no one cares about Westboro.

Oh, and they are also planning on making visits to Tuscaloosa. Ironically, their mission isn't to protest Alabama football or Nick Saban. God might smite them if they did, as it would damn near be considered blasphemy in those parts.

As far as Ole Miss goes, the university hasn't wasted its time making a statement. When the four or five members from the church show up in Oxford and no one is there because of summer vacation, I think that statement will say it all.
