Westboro baptists take on Gaga

For those of you are not familiar with the Westboro Baptists, they are the "Christian"-hate group (kind of oxymoronic?) consisting mostly of one family, the Phelps. They are unpopular with most people regardless of any religious affiliation. This is probably due to the fact that they protest the funerals of soldiers who have died in Iraq because they are guilty of "defending a country that is accepting of fags." They are also the people behind the website Find out more about these lunatics here.

Apparently, they also REALLLLLLY hate Lady Gaga.

So...not that anyone really takes the Westboro Baptists all that seriously, but this kind of crap really can't be helpful in the "take us seriously" department...
