The Westboro Baptist Church—the fanatical religious sect from Kansas hung up on homosexuality—issued a press release outlining its plan to picket the funeral of Roger Ebert. Ebert died on Thursday after a long battle with cancer. Westboro Baptist Church members will protest the critic's funeral in Chicago because he's a "f** enabler* and a fool who "sold his soul for fame & fortune."

Now the famed critic is in a new jurisdiction, where he can see the blessings poured out on God's humble servants in heaven, from his seat of eternal torment & sorrow in Hell! It's too late for the fool Roger Ebert! WBC will continue to bind those who still live in Doomed america to God's eternal laws & Word, so you, like Roger, are without excuse! [Hollywood Reporter]
