Dio and Westboro

Most of you are probably familiar with the Westboro Baptist Church: they like to hate gays and picket funerals and make signs about bitch burgers, all in the name of salvation. Basically, they're a group of cocks who love negative attention like a tick loves blood. They are most decidedly unmetal. I was trolling through Blabbermouth's RSS feed a few minutes ago and noticed Westboro's name in a headline and did a double take, because they've decided to take their traveling cock show to Dio's memorial service:
You know 67 year old, Satan-worshiping (or at least one of their enablers) Ronnie James Dio (of showing his devil horns to the world each time he goes in public) BLACK SABBATH fame is dead, right? We'll be there! Just because the chances of any of God's elect being amongst this group of heavy metal sycophants is slim to none does not mean they should not get some good words.
I'll be honest: I feel pretty gleeful about the whole thing, because if there was ever an opportunity for Westboro to get their deserved verbal comeuppance, it would be from those fans dedicated enough to attend a funeral for a metal god. Wendy Dio is urging people to turn the other cheek, but I disagree: if you're going to this event, make sure to tell the Westboro picketers exactly what you think of them and their preaching. It won't change anything, but I bet it'll make you feel pretty good afterward.
